intel Mac & PPC
Who is this guide for?
1st generation iPhones (3.9 or 4.6 bootloaders) Not for those people who are unlocked! There is no activation or unlocking with this program.
3G iPhones (who don't care about an unlock in the future - at least not right away).
Official contract only.
Those on 2.0.2 firmware ONLY.
Thanks again go out to the iPhone Dev Team for providing this amazing, and FREE program for jailbreaking, activating,
and customizing the 1st generation and 3G iPhones.
You can visit their website here.
Here is an excerpt from the iPhone Dev Team's website about QuickPwn:
"QuickPwn is not a replacement for PwnageTool, they are different tools and provide different features,
QuickPwn is for quickly pwning a device, whereas PwnageTool is designed to custom build and tailor the ipsw
production process, both tools will be actively developed in the future."
"To use QuickPwn 1.0 Mac OS X your device should be running 2.0.2, if it isn’t then you can upgrade it
to 2.0.2 using iTunes and then use the QuickPwn tool, we repeat, it’ll only work on version 2.0.2 of the
iPhone or iPod touch firmware."
"If you don’t want specific things to happen such as baseband updates then PwnageTool should be used to
create a custom .ipsw with your specifics."
I used a 3G iPhone, that was updated to 2.0.2 and on the correct 02.08.01 baseband. This iPhone is on contract
and was fully personalized, but not jailbroken at the time.
If you have not already updated to 2.0.2 firmware via iTunes, then do so.
The iPhone Dev Team is only offering a torrent at this time, so you can download the QuickPwn program
directly from this site

Use Archive Utility.app to decompress this file. This program is built into OS X.
Launch QuickPwn. Connect your iPhone and then click OK. Note: iTunes did not launch for me.
QuickPwn will detect your device.
QuickPwn will then search for the 2.0.2 firmware on your Mac. If it doesn't find it, it is supposed
to search the Internet for it.
The 2.0.2 ipsw file will now be compiled.
QuickPwn will prompt you for your system password. There is nothing nefarious in this request, the reason
it is asking (and PwnageTool asks) is because it is creating your firmware and running commands as the root
account (or superuser) on your computer. There are various processes where unmounting and mounting of a
file systems is necessary. This is performed while using a system UID of 0 which causes the prompt for a
system password. The root access is only for the creation of the ipsw file. So it's completely harmless.
Now simply follow the on screen prompts for putting your iPhone into DFU mode. First press the Sleep/Wake
(or power) button to turn the iPhone off.
You will get 5 seconds to get your fingers in place to press and hold the Sleep/Wake (power) and Home buttons.
Then hold them for 10 seconds.
Then release the Sleep/Wake (power) button.
Continue holding the Home button for 10 seconds.
A couple files will be sent, and iTunes should launch. You'll get a pop up from iTunes about your iPhone
being in recovery mode. Just click ok. I just dragged iTunes out of the way at this point.
It will then send the 018-3990-1.dmg file.
You should see the Pwnage logo on your iPhone at this point. This will be your new boot logo.
You should then receive this message. Understand what it says, then click OK and wait. This entire process
should only take 6 minutes.
You should then see the success message. If it fails, then repeat the process.
The Pwnage logo should disappear and only a spinning wheel will remain on the iPhone for about 2 minutes.
The iPhone will reboot and display the Pwange logo again. If your iPhone was already personalized, it
should still be that way. The only changes should be that Cydia and Installer have been added to your
