Pwnage Tool 2.0 By iPhone Dev Team JailBreaks New iPhone 2.0 Firmware

Unlock 3G iPhoneiPhone Dev Team the leaders in iPhone hacking have done it once again, this time they managed to jailbreak the new 3G iPhone with firmware version 2.0, and a iPhone jailbreaking tool “PwnageTool 2.0" has been developed to enable users unlock iPhone running the new firmware software version 2.0.

Pwnage Tool 2.0

The Pwnage Tool 2.0 is yet to be released for public downloading, as the software is still under private beta testing and is undergoing further tests to ensure error free performance, the team posted videos demonstrating the jailbreaking process.

Once your iPhone is jail broken and is fully unlocked the iPhone 2.0 will be able to run unofficial third-party applications, themes and games. The all new version of the PwnageTool features support for both 1.1 and 2.0 firmware versions, custom installer configurations, indexing of .ipsws files, canned web-searches, custom root partitions and much more.

To prove that iPhone 3G 2.0 has been jailbroken, iPhone Dev Team released another video unlacing the iBoot BIOS firmware on iPhone, the team quotes in their blog post:

Pwnage breaks the chain of trust from the very earliest boot stage, and as the video shows, this chain has now been broken on the iPhone 3G. Given that the only thing lower than this is ROM, Apple will have to change the hardware to prevent us from getting in, and we don’t expect them to ask for your phone back so they can “fix” it.

Update : The much awaited software is now released for public downloading, You can read more about the release and download Pwnage Tool 2.0 here (direct download link available).



Hey Guys I Know Your Pwnage Tool 2.0 will be Released Soon, But How soon is soon? i have a $600 Paperweight siiting at home and i am being forced back into the Sidekick Era. Lol. Can Anyone Give Me An Official Release Date for Pwnage Tool 2.0? HELP!!!! i just want my 1.1.4 back. PLEASE HELP!!!! i cannot restore back to 1.1.4 Because any Older Version of Itunes Gives me a popup saying "Itunes 7.7 is necessary for this Iphone to work Properly". The Pwnage Tool 2.0 is my only Savior. I Will Be In Debt To the DEV TEAM for the rest of my life. Did I Mention "PLEASE HELP"

The expected release date is within next 4-5 days.

Thank god I didn't go out immediately to get an iphone 3g. I could definitely wait 4 - 5 days to update my first generation iphone. AND I get to keep my same old CHEAP ass Rogers plan!!!.. SWEET... hahaha

dude, wen u get the new iphone, they make u open it up and activate it, with te new sim and crap (at&t), srry bra lol :)

If you load itunes 7.5 and put your phone in dfu mode while itunes is running and connected to your computer, you can load 1.1.4. Dfu has to be done while itunes is running. If you google 2.0 to 1.1.4 downgrade you can find instructions. Works every time.

Hey... guys I heard from some one if you cancel the iPhone 2 years contract before 2 years you have to returned the iPhone to AT&T is that true???
Please any body maybe know about this???

Hey.. guys, I'm new in IPhone, currently using a pre-release 1st generation IPhone. I never thought that upgrading the firmware 2.0 can lock up the phone. I'm now stuck, I tried ZIPhone, IBlickr and some other steps to downgrade the firmware.

However, once the phone restart and reboot in recovery mode, the computer sound (Dong dong dong - WinXP - Problem while installing harware). I find that there is an USB device named - *Yellow Exclamation mark* Apple recovery (iboot) - Means that the device is not installed properly. While I tried to search around the internet about this, all websites prompt to download ITUNES.

I would like to ask:
1. My IPhone keep on restarting and showing a screen with USB point to ITunes now. What should I do? Unable to power off.

2. Should I install the ITunes 7.7 and recover the firmware 2.0 so that I can get back to the normal locked firmware 2.0's screen?

Hopefully the Pwnage Tool 2.0 can help to fix this problem.

Please email or msn me if anyone have a solution to fix it.

I decided only yesterday morning to upgrade to 2.0 thinking all was good now so i can upgrade to 2.0. phone is now locked. I cant restore to the restore created before i upgraded. Ive downgraded Itunes from 7.7 back to 7.5 followed all the steps to downgrade back to 1.1.4...and nothing. just stays in recovery and doesnt do anything.

Any ideas how long away we are from getting a windows compatitable solution? hopefully soon.....
