Got some news for all you hardcore iPhone users out there. The iphone-dev team has announced a new tool that they have been working on called QuickPwn. It is basically an easier tool to jailbreak your iPhone 3G without a full restore. They are still working on the iPhone 3G unlock, which may or may not happen. Here’s what they had to say about QuickPwn:
It’s a tool we’ve been working on to jailbreak a phone more quickly and easily, without requiring a full restore. Unless you are making a custom firmware with specific features, there is nothing inherent in the pwnage process that requires a restore, and we have been planning this tool for some time. It’s more convenient because you do not need to make a full IPSW and use iTunes with it, but your phone still ends up pwned and jailbroken.
They have released a development version of the program, which only hardcore people should be testing out. In the mean time, this is great news for iPhone users as the jailbreaking process is getting easier and easier!
*update*: A GUI version has been created by “poorlad” and can be downloaded here.
