iPhone-Dev Team Releases PwnageTool 2.0 [Update: v2.0.1 Released]
With no fanfare whatsoever, the iPhone-Dev Team has officially released version 2.0 of their aptly named PwnageTool. The tool, for those who don’t already know, performs several functions on the iPhone and its software and firmware. Primarily, PwnageTool “pwns” the iPhone’s firmware which allows unsigned software and firmware to be restored to the iPhone. This, in turn, gives the ability to jailbreak and, of course, unlock the iPhone.
Currently the iPhone-Dev Team has a working jailbreak for both the original and 3G iPhones. Additionally, first generation iPhones can be unlocked using this version of pwnage, with a solution for iPhone 3G coming soon.
PwnageTool is currently a Mac-only application. Pwnage requires restoring your iPhone, so back up first. If you have any questions, problems, etc, ask away in our Hacking Tools forum.
Grab your copy of the PwnageTool v2.0 at the Dev Team’s blog.
Update: The iPhone-Dev Team has released version 2.0.1 for those who have been having various problems. If you cannot get the PwnageTool working correctly, give that version a try.
