    Why do we need the firmware when we only want to quick pawn. The only instructions I have read don't mention quick pwn asking for the ipsw file? Is this a 'beta' problem with quick pwn?

    I used quickpwn and it required the firmware to go through the process. It's not hard to find, I believe it builds custom firmware with the file.

    it needs the firmware you are using so it knows what files and librarys to use to install installer and cydia and so that it can build the ipsw back up after it has put those packages in

    it is in no way a beta problem hope this helped

    it uses the ispw to create a dopy and modify it.

    I believe that it extracts important things, such as the ramdisk, since you can't just go around distributing Apple files (like ZiPhone does with the ramdisk).
    It creates abstract files from the original files and adds it's own content, so the copyrighted files don't have to be distributed.

    actually asking for the firmware isnt agains the law, it may be against iptf rules but not illegal. getting the 2.0.x firmware for free is illegal however.
