    When people use pwnagetool, they make their own custom ipsw, why do they use that instead of regular firmware?

    Because you can build a firmware with jailbreak apps, themes, etc, already loaded into the firmware, that way you wont have to install from cydia, it will already be there.

    regular firmware, is the default firmware, NON-jailbroken, and the custom firmware is the jailbroken one.
