As we have all said a thousand times, there is an app for everything. Apparently the same is true with religion. Many churches have begun creating their own apps to stay up with the digital age. A new addition to the App Store has created quite a buzz – Confession:
The iPhone Dev-Team has released the latest version of its Mac-only jailbreaking software which is now compatible with iPhone OS 3.1.x. PwnageTool 3.1.4 now supports the iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and all 1st and 2nd gen iPod touches. The Dev-Team warns all iPhone 3GS users who wish to jailbreak now or in the future that they should do so as soon as possible. This is recommended so that your ECID hash can be saved for use in future update jailbreaks. More information can be found at the iPhone Dev-Team blog.

The iPhone Dev-Team has released updated versions of both the PwnageTool and QuickPwn for the recent 2.2.1 update. Supported devices are the iPhone, iPhone 3G, and original iPod touch. Users who unlock or intend to unlock their iPhone 3G should only update using custom firmware created with the most recent PwnageTool. Using QuickPwn or the vanilla update from iTunes will re-lock your iPhone 3G. iPhone, iPod touch users, and iPhone 3G owners who don't wish to unlock can simply update using iTunes and jailbreak using QuickPwn. More information on the do's and don'ts of updating and download links for QuickPwn and PwnageTool are at the Dev-Team Blog!
Although the iPhone Dev-Team has officially warned iPhone 3G unlockers to not update to 2.2.1, QuickPwn 2.2.1 is now available. Currently only available for Windows, QuickPwn will jailbreak the iPhone, iPhone 3G, and first-gen iPod touch running 2.2.1. However, those intending to unlock their iPhone 3G should not jailbreak with this method as upgrading with the stock 2.2.1 package will also upgrade the baseband (and lock the phone.) QuickPwn 2.2.1 is available for Windows at QuickPwn.com. Thanks to Josh for the tip!
Mac users wanting to hack their iPhone or iPod touch should beware—The update Apple released today (10.5.6 for Mac OS X Leopard) has been found to keep your Mac from recognizing your iPhone in DFU mode, making it impossible to jailbreak and/or unlock it using PwnageTool or QuickPwn. If you intend to jailbreak or unlock your iPhone or iPod touch, we suggest waiting on the update until the Dev Team comes up with a solution. The Dev Team has been informed of the issue and we'll keep you updated as more information is available.
Good news from the Dev Team for those who can't go a minute without having a hacked iPhone — both Pwnage tool 2.1 and QuickPwn 1.1 have been released. The two new versions both support the 2.1 update for iPhones and the first-gen iPod touch. It doesn't support the new iPod touch since no one on the Team has one yet. Additionally, the Dev Team has found a way around iTunes' countermeasures without needing to patch. They're available now in torrent form, but mirrors should go up shortly.
The iPhone Dev Team just announced that version 2.0.3 of the PwnageTool is now available as an update through the built-in updater. This version adds support for iPhone/iPod firmware 2.0.2 5C1, contains an updated version of Installer.app beta, and a new .de localization for people in Germany. At the same time, they also announced the update of the Windows version of the QuickPwn 150 beta, which has an improved GUI, has a fix for YouTube, and BootNeuter support for 2G iPhones.
PwnageTool 2.0.2 Released, Adds iPhone 3G Jailbreak For 2.0.1, Includes Cydia And Installer 4 Beta [Update: Download Mirrors]
The iPhone Dev Team has just released a new version of the PwnageTool, version 2.0.2. The new version includes an updated version of Cydia, as well as a new public beta of Installer 4. It can jailbreak iPhones running either 2.x or 1.1.4/1.1.5, the iPod touch, and now the iPhone 3G running the latest software update (although an unlock for the 3G update is still not available). A direct download is available here for newcomers here, and the suggested update method for those who already have the PwnageTool is to update through it's update option.
The iPhone Dev Team posted an update on their blog saying that the latest version of the PwnageTool for Mac users is currently undergoing final checks and will be released later today. It will be released through the PwnageTool's built-in software updater, as well as through a direct download link for newcomers. We'll give the details once it's released. Update: They just announced that they're delaying it a little longer because the Installer.app people almost have a public beta of Installer 4 ready, so they're going to wait until it's done so they can include it with the PwnageTool as well.
