A new tool for creating custom .ipsw files will soon be released by the creators of iLiberty+. Once your phone is Pwnd, you can flash these custom files with iTunes as well!!

IPSWTool is the next step of building custom firmwares with the style and grace of iLiberty+. With IPSWTool you can create custom firmwares packaged will all the goodies already downloaded and inserted into the IPSW. These custom firmwares can be restored onto iPhones and iTouchs that have already been Pwnd. As you can see from the video / screenshots there are already some great application compilations to install with the BigBoss and CrashX AppPacks. Furthermore there are the thing you'd expect: BSD subsystem, SSH, Installer, and of course Cydia (http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39401).
Here it is in action:

:lol: Yes, that is my plan! I am waiting for the Windows release of Pwnage to start making them.

If it doesn't come out this weekend, I'll be buying a Mac on Monday! :cool:

With the release of PwnageTool (http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=98681) we now have the ability to load unsigned firmware onto the iPhone / iPod Touch allowing for great advances in taking control. This is the next step created by theiphoneproject (http://theiphoneproject.org/b/macosx/iplus-and-iliberty-get-pwned/).

We are happy to announce that IPSWTool is coming to your computer soon!

Another very cool feature that we hope is implemented in the final release of IPSWTool is the ability to change the OS and Media partition sizes. Why? It would allow you to restore a firmware onto your iPhone / iPod Touch that already has plenty of free space for all the cool Applications (http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=29) that have been developed; getting rid of the need to move your Applications, Ringtones, etc around.

Look forward to this great Application!

hahahaha wow guys. if you thought that THAT was amazing, just wait until release. this was just the proof of concept. the final build will have much more http://modmyifone.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif

for some more info check out here:

will it be for windows also?

Not initially, but it's being worked on.



you guys know what this means?? we can use this tool to input installer/cydia into the fw 2.0 and that means we can probably unlock it using an anysim like ui.. and that means we can also download the Music store/app store back onto the phones.. meaning WE CAN HAVE A COMPLETE 2.0 FW!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ehhhh, not exactly. You can probably grab the app store from the 1.2 fw (older 2.0 build) if you want that, but Installer has to be re-compiled by nullriver in order to work...



This is pretty cool, but I think the ultimate tool would be one that can capture the current state of your iPhone to a firmware restore... as in it includes all the applications you currently have installed, your summerboard and customize themes, etc... so that when you restore your back to where you were before.

As I said earlier, the final build will have many more features, this was just a proof of concept



So this tool wuld let us edit the boot image and the systems images???

yup



Is this an iPhone only program or van the touch be used for it as well? I haven't heard anything about the iPod touch being able to have its fw nodded nor have I heard anything about the state of the touch's 1.2 jb. Will someone be kind enough to fill me in?

Pwnage Tool works fine with the iTouch, and this will too
