iPhone Dev-Team Releases PwnageTool 3.0 Jailbreak for Mac

Posted June 19, 2009 at 1:43pm by iClarified
The iPhone Dev-Team has released the PwnageTool 3.0 jailbreak tool for Mac. QuickPwn for Mac and Windows will follow soon.

1. GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a 3G iPhone with yellowsn0w and rely on yellowsn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should NOT use PwnageTool right now. UltraSn0w is not included with this release and therefore your baseband will be locked and unable to use an operator other than the official one it was bought for. UltraSn0w will be release via APT (cydia and icy) soon. If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.0 unlock works with this PwnageTool release.

2. Yellowsn0w in its current form will NOT work with the baseband version that is present in the 3.0 update, you will need Ultrasn0w, which will be released sometime soon, Ultrasn0w will work with all iPhone 3G models (but not 3GS), even ones that were previously unlockable, Ultrasn0w (when available) will be released via APT (this means you can get it via Cydia or Icy).

3. Please read all parts of this post before downloading and using these tools.

4. Read items 1, 2 and 3 again and again.

5. At the bottom of this post are the bittorrent files for the 3.0 capable version of PwnageTool.

6. This app is suitable for the recent 3.0 release.

7. PwnageTool will NOT work for the iPhone 3GS.

8. PwnageTool WILL work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch (1st Generation) and the iPhone 3G.

Currently only the first iPod touch is supported at this time...

We will be posting a tutorial on how to use this tool very shortly. Please stay tuned!

Appears that 'Find my iPhone' and 'Remote wipe' does not work if iPhone has been jailbreaked.

OK - I'm not the smartest guy going! What do you do with this "file" once it's downloaded. Doesn't appear to be a DMG? So how do you "extract" the file? TIA ajm
dyohanan - June 19, 2009 at 7:57pm
of course is a dmg file "PwnageTool_3.0.dmg"
dyohanan - June 19, 2009 at 3:50pm
PwangeTool works great, but there are a lot of apps that needs to fix before they can work on 3.0., so if you need all your apps is better to wait.
Johny - June 19, 2009 at 3:32pm
How long exactly is "shortly" for the ultrasn0w unlock? Any ideas?
xfactor - June 19, 2009 at 3:25pm
Can I just jailbreak the 3.0 now and later unlock it when ultrasn0w is released?
almulder - June 19, 2009 at 3:30pm
Yes, but if you need your phone unlocked, you will not have service until you unlock it with ultasnow once it's out. But ya you can JB it now.
almulder - June 19, 2009 at 2:51pm
Does this work for 3GS? No Unlock Needed.
madcow - June 19, 2009 at 3:19pm
it says in the post if you read it that it does NOT work for 3gs. Hopefully there isn't too much difference to sort out.
almulder - June 19, 2009 at 3:31pm
sorry, missed that line. My bad, just to excited i guess. I will wait with the other 3GS users.

What's the rush to update to 3.0? I'm still waiting for the mobileinstallation patch, winterboard, intelliscreen, etc to be updated before I will be upgrading. By then, all the bugs and stable jailbreak will be available.
emad - June 19, 2009 at 4:16pm
I agree with MR. Q why the rush to update ? voice command , camera video , gps comps , every thing not supported by 3G and only 3GS iphone

Thanks Dev! Please also let us know if this release corrects both issues as mentioned yesterday such as YouTube inoperable. Is this a final release or will there be more to correct bugs, are there any? Thanks!

Fito - June 19, 2009 at 1:58pm
I dont remember what i used to unlock/jailbreak my 2G iPhone. Would it be safe to use pwnage then?
Eric - June 19, 2009 at 1:57pm

Christos - June 19, 2009 at 2:15pm

Van - June 19, 2009 at 7:21pm
Same problem here! Tried several different sources for PwnageTool and for the ipsw... Even tried 2 different macs, but nothing seems to work... :s
Omar - June 19, 2009 at 1:54pm
Just a quick question !! Can I just jailbreak the 3.0 now and later unlock it when ultrasn0w is released or should I wait for some kind of advance version ?? Regards
Jay - June 19, 2009 at 1:51pm
Will it work with iPhone 2G if I used QuickPWN to unlock with 2.2.1
Dirk - June 19, 2009 at 1:51pm
almulder - June 19, 2009 at 2:46pm
