Pwnage Tool 2.0.2 Is Being Released Very Soon

Share:

The cat and mouse game continues again and again! The Dev Team has announced that the Pwnage Tool version 2.0.2 was going to be released yesterday. But they are delaying the release to include Installer 4!

That means you’ll be able to jailbreak your iPhone if you updated to 2.0.1 firmware via iTunes. However, an unlock for the firmware 2.0.1 is still a work in progress.

To summarize what this Pwnage Tool means…in simple terms…

  • For first generation iPhone users…
    • You have nothing to worry about. You can jailbreak, unlock, and manipulate your iPhone like a rag doll to your heart’s content. This is where the first gen is awesome for modding and hacking.
  • For iPhone 3G users…
    • You will be able to jailbreak your 2.0.1 updated firmware.
    • NOTE: if you want to consider “unlocking” your iPhone 3G to use with another carrier, the Dev Team suggests that you DO NOT update to 2.0.1 via iTunes! It might hinder your chances for a future “unlock”.
  • Pwnage is for Mac computers
  • WinPwn is for PC’s and should be updated shortly to 2.0.2 once Pwnage is released.

A few notes from the Dev Team:

  • As always PwnageTool 2.0.2 contains Cydia, in fact it contains a new version of Cydia with some bugfixes and other general goodness, thanks saurik!
  • Installer 4 is going to be included in the final version, hence the delay

As for yours truly, the one and only iPhone Fan, I have not jailbroken my iPhone 3G. I’ve received a lot of emails from people asking about guides and why I haven’t done it yet. Well, to be honest I like my iPhone 3G the way it is at the moment and I see no benefit to jailbreaking. I like the ability to do one click updates via iTunes for firmware and not have to bother with the cat and mouse game anymore–I’ll save that for my first gen iPhone. I do admit I miss using other 3rd party apps. Maybe one day when I’m bored and have itchy fingers I’ll jailbreak. πŸ™‚

For the first gen users out there, I have not forgotten about you. I will be updating my first gen to 2.0 shortly, and will have a full video guide of the process. If you recall, I did not update my 1.1.1 firmware to 1.1.4 until I knew it was safe to do so. Call me a freak, but I’d rather not deal with the headaches should anything go wrong with updating etc. It seems that everybody can have their own issues when it comes to jailbreaking and playing around with the iPhone.

A lot of you will be saying “you should jailbreak–it’s sooo easy!”. That’s fantastic and I’m happy for you! You deserve a medal. =) In all honesty, I will stick to my guns and jailbreak when I see the time is right. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? πŸ™‚

    Oh don’t pretend that when the new Pwnage with Installer on it comes out you won’t want to jailbreak!

    Plus, you need to jailbreak to use OpenSSH which is super fabulous for programs like iPhone Notes and to do things on your phone.

    I can’t wait for iWoman so I can calculate my period! hahahaha – Oh, and Converter is the best Installer program I’ve come across, in my opinion. Customize is great too, but with I’ve been able to change my text message bubbles using SSH, which is all I really needed it for… But I can’t wait for Installer for real.

    I agree with you iPhoneFan! I also like my 3G the way it is. I will, however, tinker around with jailbreaking my 1st gen phone when this is released. It is still fully functional, as I am riding the next year and a half out on a minimized plan. I get a whole 40 minutes of talk time per month on it and all the Wifi my little heart desires!! πŸ˜€ Have a fantastic weekend.

  • T: haha…LOL @ iWoman…but anyways, once I see some amazing apps I will most likely be drooling over them. Time will tell…

    Tim: Yeah, my first gen is basically the one to mess around with. Enjoy your weekend too!

    Harry: I just got my 2nd iPhone 3G replacement, it’s on 2.0.1 and it is still LAGGY. I will try a full restore tonight to see if that works.

    Sara: It might work…but it could end up being very “thick”…I’ll let you know once I get some gelaskins in the mail. πŸ™‚

    @Harry: I haven’t noticed any difference in 2.0.1 at all. It’s still pretty much the same as before except, in my case anyway, it’s been crashing (as in full reboot) more often now.

    On topic though, I probably won’t be jailbreaking for a while. Not until I’m completely bored of my iphone or some really worthwhile apps come out.

    I’m happy with the 3G iPhone the way it is now that data plans are available in Canada.

    From what I’ve heard, there aren’t many applications for the 3G iphone on the black market anyway.

    Plus, I would hate to brick my phone unnecessarily.
