There were reports of the PwnageTool Bundle being released last week to be tested out within the developer community. It had some issues reported and didn’t work at large for many out there. However the PwnageTool Bundle has finally been released to enable you to jailbreak iOS 4.3 Beta on the iPhone 4.
There is one thing to keep in mind here though. The release is only for the iOS developers and requires you to have a Mac to take this for a spin. The other bit as already mentioned is that you must be a part of the iPhone Developer Enterprise or Standard Program. I thought about giving it a try but to be honest I am not a hardcore developer and didn’t want to try this one. So I would warn that this must only be attempted by those iPhone users who are well versed in jailbreaking iPhone.
Users can download the custom PwnageTool Bundle from iPhone privacy and use our given guide on how to jailbreak iOS 4.3 using the PwnageTool. As for the latest instructions I would share the following right from Github so you may follow these at your own risk:
- Unpack the original ramdisk:
xpwntool orig_restore_rd.dmg restore_rd.dec.dmg -iv .. -k ..(use the keys from wiki)
- Mount the ramdisk:
hdiutil attach restore_rd.dec.dmg
- Free up some space:
rm /Volumes/ramdisk/(some unneeded large-ish file)
- Patch asr:
mv /Volumes/ramdisk/usr/sbin/asr /tmp/; bspatch /tmp/asr /Volumes/ramdisk/usr/sbin/asr (bundle_path)/asr.patch
- Change the restore options: edit
/Volumes/ramdisk/usr/local/share/restore/options.plistwith Property List Editor, add ‘UpdateBaseband’ = false – see http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Preventing_Baseband_Update for details
- Unmount the ramdisk:
hdiutil detach /Volumes/ramdisk
- Re-encrypt the ramdisk:
xpwntool restore_rd.dec.dmg pwned_restore_rd.dmg -t orig_restore_rd.dmg -iv .. -k ..
- Replace the ramdisk inside of CFW produced by the Pwnage Tool with
pwned_restore_rd.dmgYou can either unzip and re-zip the CFW or replace it inside of /tmp/ipsw dir when PwnageTool is running.
