Below are various different custom firmware files that were created using Pwnage Tool 4.1 download these if you are weary of creating your own. Your device MUST be in pwned-DFU mode for these firmware files to restore properly(read below). Make sure you read the description of each firmware CAREFULLY so that you know what you are installing.
*IMPORTANT* In order to restore these custom firmware files, you must use Pwnage Tool(Mac) to enter DFU mode. If you have Windows, you can now use Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 to enter pwned-dfu mode which will allow you to install the custom firmware …
@MuscleNerd has tweeted a nice little "nerd alert", which showcases a demo video of the iPad getting a custom firmware restore using PwnageTool.
Basically, PwnageTool uses geohot's limera1n exploit to convince iTunes to restore a custom firmware. In fact, in this video demo, MuscleNerd shows that you can even restore an iPad to pre-JB 3.2.2 from PwnageTool.
Stay tuned, as PwnageTool is set to release this Sunday. Once again, a "sunday funday"! If MuscleNerd posts a video for the AppleTV device, I'll add it to this post.…
Chronic Dev Team's long anticipated jailbreak is finally here using the limera1n exploit.
Greenpois0n only works on firmware 4.1, so (only if you have an iPhone 4!) if you are on a lower firmware make sure you use TinyUmbrella to preserve your baseband.
Mac version to be released soon!
Initially, this will be a Windows-only release. This is due to some technical complications that we soon hope to correct. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Thanks to geohot for the bootrom USB …
We announced previously that Greenpois0n could jailbreak the Apple TV 2G. When Limera1n was first announced and released we didn't think it would support the Apple TV 2G, well we can now confirm that it does!
On Limera1n’s official website, hacker geohot writes: “AppleTV is technically supported, but there’s no apps yet”. So yes, while you can jailbreak it, i.e. have administrator access, there really …
The Greenpois0n jailbreak has been a very confussing and sometimes complicated thing for many people to understand so I thought I would again, bring some more clarification. This time regarding a jailbreak for iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G.
The SHAtter based GreenPois0n tool is all set to arrive on October 10. But unfortunately, as we mentioned here, it will only jailbreak the fourth-generation devices. These are: The iPhone 4, iPad, iPod touch 4G and the Apple TV 2G. This limitation is because the exploit SHAtter uses is only compatible with the A4 chip…
If you own an iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, and/or iPad, then this jailbreak tool will work with your device! This is because SHAtter is used to exploit Apple’s A4 chip. If you have an iPod touch 2G (including MC models, though your jailbreak will be tethered) or an iPhone 3G, please use redsn0w to jailbreak your device (scroll down to the bottom of the post to find download links).
If you have an iPhone …

For those that are unaware, GreenPois0n uses a low-level bootrom exploit which will pwn all current iOS devices for life. Apple wont …
