    @SpookyET Ok then you might need to wait for the official PwngeTool release for iOS 4.0 / 4.0.1 which will be released in near future!

    SpookyET7 years ago

    Can you release iPhone1,2_4.0.1_8A306.bundle for iPhone 3G as well? Thank you.

      Wolverine7 years ago

      You can use Redsn0w to jailbreak iOS 4.0.1 on iPhone 3G.

        SpookyET7 years ago

        I can’t use RedSn0w. I need PwnageTool for custom packages capability. Hence, why I need Phone1,2_4.0.1_8A306.bundle.

          Wolverine7 years ago

          You can also use JailbreakMe 2.0 to jailbreak iOS 4.01 / 4.0.1 on iPhone 3G!

            SpookyET7 years ago

            Nope, I can’t. I need PwnageTool for custom packages capability. At the page where you select whether you want Cydia installed, you can have your own packages show up. JailbrakeMe and RedSn0w won’t let me make custom payloads. PwnageTool does. Hence, why I need a bundle for PwnageTool.

    I just thought I’d point out you do NOT need to hactivate to unlock. All hactivation does is cause issues with push notifications, just put an official SIM in for five seconds and your all active, then unlock and there. No hactivation crap and no push notification issues.

      Wolverine7 years ago

      Thankyou! What hactivation do is it enables you to get rid of emergency dial screen and shows you the real SpringBoard so that we can launch Cydia and install Ultrasn0w and unlock our devices. If not hactivated, we need original AT&T SIM to get rid of emergency dial screen!
