What is P0Xpwn?
Usually, you need to fire up Redsn0w jailbreak tool to put your device in pwned DFU mode. While it’s easy to do that, it does require some setup on the user’s part.
This is where this new utility comes in.
P0Xpwn is a command line utility allows you to instantly put your Limera1n-compatible A4 device into pwned DFU mode.
It is developed by iOS developer, Damien, who specializes in legacy device development.
How is it useful?
While performing a tethered downgrade, you first need to put your device in pwned DFU mode. This is an essential step in the downgrade process without which downgrading is not possible.
Obviously, not many people own a legacy A4 device now. However, users who do own such devices are heavily involved in jailbreaking and development since all firmware are now jailbreak-able.
So those of you who are still rocking a legacy device, this is the tool you need.
- iPhone 4
- iPad (1st generation)
- iPod touch (4th generation)
As of now, only 32-bit devices with Apple’s A4 processor are compatible. The developer also has a 64-bit version of this tool but it was pulled off due to bugs.
A stable build can still come out in the future.
