    Works great with 2G iPhone that was upgraded to 2.0. Went through the advance mode and uncheck the custom boot and restore logo. By default, those logo are replaced with Pwnage Team's pineapple logo and a cartoon character of Mr. Jobs.

    Word of advice. If you get to the question about whether or not your iPhone was pwned before. Just choose yes. Then put your iPhone in DFU mode by following instructions found on the internet and then simply restore the custom firmware the Pwnage tool created.

    Good job Dev Team!

    Thanks for the news! It seems awesome, however I only have PCs, does anyone know how much longer it will take for the windows version to come out? Also any bugs with this 2.0 version yet?

    Looks like the repo man is preventing my download.
    This is the error i got:


    You don't have permission to access /repofiles/nonrepo/PwnageTool_2.0.zip on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Will try using a proxy.....

    Luis: this is for people with firmware 2.0. You want to use earlier tool or Ziphone 3.0 to unlock your iphone

    Anon: trying restore and it to original state and then retry. I would go to DEV Team Blog. Others had that problem!

    The software works great, but you have to have mac or Mac OS.
    It was a bit tricky for me, and I'm a computer geek.

    has anyone tried to use a Emulator like VMWare running Mac OS X and got this to work on a windows machine? If so could you post the software you have used and the steps you have taken to get it to work?

    The article above states that it will install the Installer.app. However, the only one I am able to find is Cydia.

    Does anyone know how to get the Installer.app loaded on 3g?

    for those of you who can't get past 'failed to enter dfu mode' or error 6, go into ~/library/itunes, and create a new folder called 'device support'. MAKE SURE THAT IT'S IN YOUR USERNAME, NOT JUST FROM MAC HD/LIBRARY/ITUNES. that is the trick!

    Here at Colombia I've just did the Jailbreak and it worked perfect acording to "Gatchek" instructions in a previous comment.

    Thanks for everything!

    There is a way to do it with Windows. Download an already custom 2.0.ipsw via bittorrent, PWN your 1.1.4, install boot neuter and neuter your iphone, then enter DFU mode, plug it in, and shift click itunes (must be 7.7) restore button and pick the custom 2.0.ipsw

    WORKS On WINDOWS TOOO>... FOLLOW THESE instructions.. IT WORKED for ME :))))

    Step 1: Use WinPWN 1.0 To PWN Your 1.1.4 iPhone. If you need WinPWN Get it at:


    WinPWN will ask for an IPSW you should use the 1.1.4 IPSW. Here is the link:


    Step 2: Install BootNeuter (Available Via Installer use the old 1.0 version it basically preps the phone).

    Step 3: Run BootNeuter and have it Neuter your iphone

    Step 4: Make sure your iTunes version is at 7.7

    Step 5: Grab a pre-created IPSW Made with PWNAGE 2.0 Mac. If you don't have one made you can grab one here:

    Step 6: Grab ZiPhone to get into Recovery Mode EASILY (http://download.ziphone.org)

    Step 7: Run Ziphone & Jump your iPhone into NORMAL Recovery mode (available via advanced settings area in Ziphone) -- This is the most straightforward way to get it into the proper restore mode

    Step 8: In iTunes Shift+Click the Restore button and find your custom IPSW Firmware file.

    Step 9: The restore occurs. Then you should see bootneuter automatically come up (this is pwnage unlocking, activating and jail breaking your iphone).

    You are DONE! ENJOY!

    Seems not to work with a Swisscom chip. I tried it twice in simple and expert mode but always the same after restart I can only make emergenc calls and iTunes says always the SIM card inserted does not appear to be supported.

    This might sound interesting to some of you but before i tried Pwnage today to update to 2.0 i did an itunes updated to my 1.1.4 ziphone jailbreak, activate and unlock. The interesting part was after update on itunes i got the activation screen but my phone was still unlock to tmobile, so i called it with another phone and i was able to answer the call. I guess it Ziphone unlock is somehow a permanent unlock at aleast for mine because the same thing happened from 1.1.3 to 1.1.4 and this is the second iphone since 1.1.4. Just thought i will share that

    Now for the rest of the processes, turning your phone on or off won't do any good from the start since you are just creating your custom firmware, i tried mine twice with and without the phone connected and it didn't make any difference all worked fine.
    Secondly for the people with the dfu problem, there is a counter in the screen when it ask you to turn the phone off and when you turn it off, just follow the counts and it will work like charm, i tried mine twice the first time and released that the dev team did a good job by making sure the timer is the exact to put your phone in dfu.
    Another thing, you will have to download the bootloader version for your iphone but it doesn't matter when you save it, Pwnage will find it just like it will your bootloader. I will also recommend you don't rush but take your time and if possible use expect so you can see what you are doing

    lastly are Thanks so much to the Dev team for making me know what it feels like with this noise about the 2.0 firmware.

    Finally to end all for my own preference even thought everything on mine works fine and network is great, though i want my installer back,i think Ziphone's earlier version was the best and i hope he comes up with something soon and i sure will change to his.

    I will be glad to answer any question posted to me since i have unlocked 17 phones already and none with any bugs so far

    After MUCH ado, I believe I have succeeded, only because I have witnessed the pineapple and now have Cydia on my screen. But how do I know for sure that my phone is jailbroken and unlocked?

    It would be awesome if the geeks that wrote this stuff could somehow stop speaking Klingon in order to communicate with the rest of us. (Yes, I am jealous that I'm not smart enough to speak the lingo). Respectfully, when in advanced mode, the rest of us have NO idea what these guys are saying.

    Thanks for a great work. Really!

    I could get my iphone 1.1.4 (Ziphoned) upgraded to iphone2.0 using the pwnage tool. No problems there. However, cydia seems to be crashing consistently - whenever it is launched. Are others facing the same problem too? Any solutions?
