A few hours after updating their famous jailbreak tool RedSn0w to bring an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 to the masses, the Dev Team has now released an updated version of PwnageTool.

PwnageTool is the perfect tool for unlockers, as it will allow you to create a custom IPSW, thus allowing you to update your firmware while still preserving the baseband for unlocking using either Gevey SIM or UltraSn0w

As usual, you can download PwnageTool from our Downloads section. Here’s our tutorial for jailbreaking iOS 5.0.1 with PwnageTool.

  • iH8snow will be releasing a new 5.0.1 untethered sn0wbreeze soon, he’s working on iFaith blobs integration.

  • what’s the point of pwnagetools now if redsnow can build custom ispws too?

    • pwnagetool for Mac, Redsn0w for Windows.

      • Redsn0w works on mac though

      • Redsn0w works on both Mac and Windows, so I really don’t see any point of updating PwnageTool.

      • Redsn0w for window will not allow you to create a custom IPSW

      • Redsn0w for window will not allow you to create a custom IPSW

      • Yes it will.

  • Redsn0w for window will not allow you to create a custom IPSW ??!! 🙁

  • Redsn0w for window will not allow you to create a custom IPSW ??!! 🙁

  • Redsn0w for window will not allow you to create a custom IPSW YET FOR NOW….

    • I just created a custom ipsw to preserve baseband using redsn0w the file is 767mb as opposed to the original file which is 790mb? I’m using windows by the way

  • i cant download Winterboard whats up with that?

    • Yeah, all of my repos are empty. Is anyone else having this problem??

      • traffic on cydia!

      • Would that explain not being able to install ANYTHING for any of my different repos?

    • Well, I guess their not empty, but I can’t actually install anything off of cydia…ahg!

  • Mike Kelly

    I JB my phone today.
    Having many issues.
    Screen freezing up on Respring, etc.
    I’ve had to put in DFU twice and use redsnow to reboot.

    Anyone else having these issues?

  • is there any jailbreak for ipad 2 ios 4.3.5? or is better if i upgrade to ios 5.0.1 ?

  • Anonymous

    this is important for 4s & iPad 2 we are pondering if we should upgrade to 5.0.1 or stay on 5.0 to be safe before apple release new one and that will postpone the untethering jailbreak that is being worked on. We need to hear from them. have them confirm because we want to hear from them.
