iOS 4.1 Untethered Jailbreak: PwnageTool Mac Download
Download the newest untethered iOS 4.1 jailbreak software: PwnageTool for iPhone 4, iPod 4G, iPad, & Apple TV 2G.
Thanks to the unofficial iPhone dev team, iOS jailbreak tool PwnageTool is released, hopefully won’t be pwned by Apple announcement later today.
iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, iPad, Apple TV Jailbreak
A combination of Limera1n and Pwnage2, PwnageTool 4.1 works untethered on these devices with iOS firmware 4.1:
- AppleTV 2G
- iPad (firmware 3.2.2)
- iPod touch 4G
- iPod touch 3G
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 3G
There’s an improved DFU mode.
For iPhone users, PwnageTool 4.1 is better than limera1n, greenpois0n, redsn0w. Why? To keep the ultrasn0w iPhone carrier unlock, people need to preserve the current baseband.
There’s also an improved expert mode where you select the exact IPSW firmware file (no need to wait for automated firmware search). In Expert mode, the default is to hacktivate (“Activate the iPhone”), so if you have a legit SIM card be sure to deselect that option in Expert mode.
You can also restore to pre-jailbroken firmware while simultaneously maintaining your current baseband.
Apple TV Jailbreak
AppleTV users can only access stuff through the command line via ssh. Apple TV 2G users need to change THE default SSH password of alpine after jailbreak.
