If you are running the latest version of firmware (2.0.2) on iPhone or iPhone 3G and have a Mac and want to Jailbreak your device to get Cydia and version 4 on there, you are in luck. The iPhone dev team has a tool called QuickPwn for Mac OS X that is similar to its sister app PwnageTool 2.0.3, but is designed for quickly pwning a device, whereas PwnageTool is designed to custom build and tailor the ipsw production process.

This version of QuickPwn requires iPhone software version 2.0.2 so if you haven’t upgraded to that you can get it using iTunes and then use the QuickPwn tool. If you don’t have 2.0.2 firmware on your iPhone or iPod touch, this won’t work!

Update: If you have updated to iPhone software version 2.1, you can download the new version of QuickPwn for 2.1 for Windows. You will also need to download the Bootloader files for iPhone Classic.

Update: If you have firmware update 2.2 and want to jailbreak your iPhone, you can use the latest version of QuickPwn for 2.2 firmware update. Instructions for upgrading from a jailbroken firmware 2.1 to 2.1 are listed below.

Update: If you have iPhone software version 3.0, you should be using Redsn0w to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone or iPod touch, depending on which version you have.

Update: If you want to get iPhone software version 3.1, you will need to use Pwnage Tool 3.1 to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone or iPod touch, which is under development and may be supported by now depending on which device you have.

  1. Connect your device and update to firmware 2.2 on iTunes 8.0.2 – your hacked .ipa will remain even when its updated, but all the installed packages from cydia/installer will be removed and will have to be reinstalled.
  2. Download QuickPwn 2.2 for Windows or MAC, and run it and it will ask you to locate the 2.2 ipsw (so make sure you have this downloaded)
  3. Follow the instruction and you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch with 2.2
  4. After a reboot, open iTunes and allow it to sync. You can still use the Mobile patch 2.1

You can download the official release of QuickPwn from the following torrent files. Tip: Use “Archive Utility” that ships with OS X to unzip the .tbz file you download. Don’t unzip the .tbz file you download with “The Unarchiver” tool.

    I screwed up. I let iTunes upgrade my pod from 2.1 to 2.2. and all of my appl;ications outside of iTunes are gone. Any sense of when quickpwn will work with 2.2?

    when I used this I found it worked at first then every few days I had the same results…i got locked out of my phone completely but not before the applications all began to crash in the same exact way. first the phone dial pad would stop functioning then the rest of the icons would not work. My last attempt at any form of fixing this resulted in a phone that no longer works period. I now have a new phone and I am fearful of re-trying this again before knowing what caused the last one to malfunction all together! Any help is appreciated greatly! I can tell you that not only did my last phone freeze it never was able to even turn on again which is why I was able to get a replacement…I do not wish to repeat this though…however I miss having the wonderful backgrounds and icons…this regular stuff is just plain boring! Too bad Apple is not more creative! :0(

    @shaz If you are using Windows make sure you have AppleMobileDeviceService in your process list and that the service called Apple Mobile Device is running. Also you might try turning off firewall software if you have any. btw this has nothing to do with quickpwn :)

    hey Steve did you use the latest version of quickpwn/itunes? when I tested it out, it actually opened the browse button the the folder where iTunes stores the ipsw files.

    steve says:

    where do you find the firmware bundle (IPSW)? i searched all over my computer for it and couldnt find it, then i downloaded iphone 3g firmware 2.1, and it doesnt do anything. if someone could tell me what to download or where the file typically is on the computer, that would be a great help. thanks

    Alvaro says:

    Thats not the version of your iphone is the .net framework version you should have installed on your computer. go to and search for 3.5 .net framework, download and install it. and then continue with quickpwn.

    steve says:

    i just downloaded it and when i click on it to run it a message comes up reading:
    you first must install one of the following versions of the .NET Framework: v2.0.50727

    I dont know what this means, i thought it meant that my iphone must be updated to 2.1, but i double checked and i have the latest version.
    so any suggestions would help me out, thanks

    I think it would be helpful to describe what the app does, before you tell the users they can download an update…
