PwnageTool 3.1 Download is Now Available!

Share:

If you’ve been waiting for the release of PwnageTool 3.1, you’re in luck. The iPhone Dev Team released the updated version of PwnageTool this afternoon. PwnageTool allows you to create a custom firmware to restore your iPhone with, thus enabling you to keep older basebands (so your iPhone remains unlocked if you need it to be).

PwnageTool 3.1 Download Supports iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch

Some notes on PwnageTool 3.1:

1. GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a 3G iPhone with ultrasn0w and rely on ultrasn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should only upgrade to 3.1 with a PwnageTool created .ipsw. – Stay away from Apple’s direct updates as described here and here please get up to speed on the whole subject by reading the information contained in these posts.
2. If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.1 unlock works with this PwnageTool release. iPhone 3G users upgrading to 3.1 will need to continue using ultrasn0w with a PwnageTool created 3.1 .ipsw
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 3.1 capable version of PwnageTool.
6. This app is suitable for the recent 3.1 release.
7. This version of 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.

In Other Words, PwnageTool 3.1 only works for the following devices:
– iPhone 2G
– iPhone 3G
– iPod Touch (first gen)

PwnageTool is currently for OS X only and DOES NOT support the iPhone 3GS. A later release is scheduled for iPhone 3GS owners. Until then, be patient for the release! Click here to download it via Bittorrent.

If you are a really patient person, you could wait a day or two for bugs to be fixed, because usually people run into some issues with these initial releases. Let us know if PwnageTool 3.1 works for your 2G, 3G or iPod Touch!

  • Robert J Perry the 1st

  • No

  • dudemaster

    Just completed the 3.1 update using the Dev Teams PwnageTool. The phone is fine. I have lost the carrier name and it just shows the bars and 3G!! Winterboard does not work. I will see what the battery looks like after a bit of use and report back. The phone 'seems' faster…..

    Bravo iphoneincanada.

    I've been tracking various iphone blogs recently. I have always liked iphoneincanada because I'm here in Canada and you always give me great Canada-specific information (like how to get Skype before it was available in Canada, and news about Rogers/Fido).

    This evening I'm even more impressed. This story about the Pwnage Tool 3.1 is not on any of the other blogs I checked. The story isn't popular on digg. Well done picking up this story so quickly and securing your place as the first blog I will check to find out what's going on with the iPhone.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Cause we are epic

  • Robert J Perry the 1st

    yes it does, well it did for me anyway

  • Robert J Perry the 1st

    when you create the custom firmare click expert and then general and uncheck “activate phone” i think that what its called anyway

  • dudemaster

    I did uncheck “activate phone” when making the custom firmware. The phone works on 3G as well as wifi. The carrier name is missing. I used to get the signal strength bars followed by “ROGERS” followed by “3G” – now I just get the strength bars and 3G and the word “ROGERS” is missing.

    Battery life seems the same as on 3.0.1 by the way.

  • Thanks for reading the blog, glad you enjoy it 🙂

    You need to Jailbreak your iPhone first before you can unlock the iPhone…

  • rorypiper

    Just posted a iPhone 3G Jailbreak tutorial, over at Green Candy. Check it out, if you need some help.
