Step 5

Then begin the search for the firmware 4.1 of your device.

As a reminder, you must have downloaded this via the site cited above.

Select it and click on the blue arrow.

Pwnagetool cannot find the firmware, the solution. If you can’t find the firmware, it’s because by downloading your download manager to change the firmware extension from IPSW to ZIP, you just have to rename the extension to IPSW.

Attention very important!

  • If you use an original SIM card, i.e. delivered with the iPhone when purchased. Example. You have an Orange iPhone and you use an Orange SIM card so you should not tick the box “Activate the iPhone”
  • If you use a SIM card which is not original, that is to say not delivered with the iPhone at purchase. Example. You have an Orange iPhone and you are using an SFR SIM card so you must check the “Activate iPhone” box

Click on the blue arrow to go to the next menu.
