Input the following command for devices with the new bootrom:

open ~/Desktop/Pwnage/redsn0w_mac_0.9.6rc7/redsn0w.app --args -j -i ~/Desktop/Pwnage/iPhone3,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw

Input the following command for devices with the old bootrom (iPod 2G, iPhone 3GS):

Hey my friends, I need some help. I'm trying to download the pwnage software and can't get it. It says "web page not founded". Do you have any idea where can I download this tool easily? Thank you in advanced.

Im sorry, I didnt test it yet, but.. How's that any faster than the other method? The only difference I've seen was skipping a few screens on the redsn0w, but the whole entering DFU mode thing is still there... Unless the boot itself is faster, is it? Dont get me wrong, Im not complaining about anything, just trying to understand ;)

Doesn't work for me (on OSX 10.5.8). Terminal always responds with: "open: unrecognized option `--args'"

Workaround: If I change the path to inside the package "redsn0w.app/Contents/MacOS/redsn0w" and omit "--args" it seems to work.
