[iPhone] Pwnage has been released
April 3rd, 2008
This is one of the greatest news these days. The iPhone Dev Team
today released the Pwnage Tool to free all our iPhones from the devil :-) . The incomplete-news
team bows in deepest respect to the whole iPhone Dev Team.
Pwnage is a masterpiece of ambitious reverse engineering. We feel reminded of the modified Darwin bootloader (Netkas' PC EFI), which is - in a certain way - a comparable masterpiece. All those efforts resulting in such "One Click Tools" are hardest work of understanding assembly code and nowadays encryption technologies. I can hardly believe that the Dev Team has done all this in their spare time. Thumbs up, guys. You definitly rock...
As of yet only the Apple Mac OS X version has been released. The Microsoft Windows version will be handed out most likely within the next few hours, but “cmw” - the dev of the windows version - needs right now some sleep, because he ported the whole Pwnage program in just one week to Microsoft Windows - w00t...
However a couple of people are yet reporting errors after applying Pwnage. Here are the most often errors since release 8 hours ago.
- " The bootloader flash failed (Error 5)"
- "Detaching custom ramdisk from '/Volumes/xyz'."
- "Detaching root filesystem from '/Volumes/xyz'."
- "Updating custom Ramdisk"
- mail.app crashes and iTunes can't sync then
- iTunes reports " "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1604)."
- Bootneuter stucks while "Determining current settings"
We will surely release a detailed and illustrated HowTo about Pwning your iPhones. But if your iPhone is working smoothly right now, due to the errors being reported, for now we don't recommend applying Pwnage.
