    Followed all steps but it gives me a 1600 error when I try and load the firmware.

  2. Paxman says:

    It won’t let me put the new firmware I downloaded into the firmwarebundles file because it says it cannot be modified, any ideas on how to do it?

    • JaeM1llz says:

      You’re supposed to put the firmware bundles in the Pwnage Tool app folder just like it shows in the video.

      • Nelli says:

        I have a similar problem: after inserting the bundle under Pwnage tool (which showed up under Devices menu), i am unable to select the bundle once i am asked for it going through the jailbreaking process — it is just greyed out. I am also unable to see Show Content until i hold cntl key and right click. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you might have!

        one additional point i noticed — when i downloaded pwnage tool it did not come in zip format. i noticed that some intstructions refer to having to unzip the pwnage file.

    When I try to drag iPhone3,3_4.2.8_8E401.bundle file into the “FirmwareBundles” it say it can not be moved because can not be modified. What should I do?

    • JaeM1llz says:

      Make sure that you extract the firmware bundles to your desktop and update the permissions.

      • Dallas Wood says:

        Now PwnageTool says wrong firmware bundle selected. I’m sorry to be an idiot but do you know what I’m doing wrong?

        • JaeM1llz says:

          You’re using Pwnage Tool 4.2 correct? This tutorial will not work with the newest version of Pwnage Tool. That could be the issue, otherwise that error usually happens when you are using the wrong firmware for the device you are trying to restore.

  4. Adrian says:

    Thank you so much this worked so much. I tried Pwange Tool 4.3 and it did not load but this worked:)

  5. vMail says:

    Recently I was using Ifile to browse my iPhone files and found a folder called My Mobile Watchdog. Any idea how that got installed?

    • JaeM1llz says:

      My Mobile Watchdog is a parental control application that allows parents to monitor their child’s messaging and cellphone use. It doesn’t come preinstalled with anything so you must have installed it or someone else installed it.
