How To: Re-Enable Jailbreak/Unlock for Mac OS X 10.5.6
So you say you updated to the latest Mac OS X 10.5.6 and wanted to jailbreak or unlock. Well the update severely hindered your ability to do that. The Dev-Team says it is a simple kernel bug and not a specific countermeasure by Apple, never the less, there is still a work around.
It's a pretty straight forward fix actually, first you need to have administrator privileges. Then download the script file . Got it? Good, now continue on for the detailed instructions after the break!(opens in new tab)

I will try this out when i get home.
Rebooted quickly and everything is working!
It will break your USB drivers causing the keyboard and trackpad not to work when you restart, forcing you to reinstall OS X
I opened it and it asked for password, then it like crashed. I restarted my computer and the DFU mode still doesn't work. I tried doing it multiple times but still didn't work. What really confused me is there is a backup folder thing on my desktop like there is supposed to be, but overall it doesn't work.
WHEN IS THE DEV TEAM GOING TO COME UP WITH A SOLUTION TO THIS?
I tried to go through the terminal to the path where its supposed to copy the new files, and those files aren’t there.
Any idea on what could be missing? I really want my iPhone back :(
I unlocked the iphone 3g 2.2 and jailbroken in 10 minutes!!!!
using the new Macbook pro aluminium and using an external USB hub (very cheap and it works with anyone!!)
Ho appena fatto il jailbreak e sbloccaggio per tutte le sim del mio iphone 3g 2.2 usando il mio Macbook pro aluminium della nuova famiglia mac.
Precedentemente non funzionava quickpwn su questo modello di laptop ma provando con un hub USB esterno (porta multipla USB) funziona.
Il mio suggerimento e' di non utlizzare la procedura che utilizzando lo script va a sostituire dei file.
Se avete aggiornato il software mac, non vi azzardate a usare questi script perche' potrebbero bloccare la tastiera e trackpad.
Semplicissimo: usate una porta usb esterna collegate il vostro iphone 3g 2.2 con quickpwn 2.2 e il gioco e' fatto in 10 minuti!!!!!!!!!
DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU ARE RUNNING MAC OS X FROM A POWERMAC G5 (PPC)!!!! IT RENDERS YOUR USB DRIVES USELESS, WHICH WILL KILL YOUR KEYBOARD AND MOUSE! YOU WILL HAVE TO REINSTALL FROM THE DVD.
