The iPhone Dev Team has just released the latest version of their Pwnage Tool., v2.0.2.
The new version of Pwnage Tool can be used to jailbreak the first generation iPhone running either iPhone firmware 2.x or 1.1.4 or 1.1.5 as well as iPhone 3G running running the latest iPhone firmware.
The latest version of the Pwnage Tool also includes the public beta version of the new and improved version of Installer app as well as an updated version of Cydia, another Installer application for unofficial iPhone apps.
As mentioned earlier, iPhone Dev Team’s Pwnage Tool can jailbreak and unlock the first generation iPhone running either firmware 1.1.4 or 1.1.5 or 2.x including iPhone firmware 2.0.1 that was released by Apple earlier in the week.
It also can jailbreak iPhone 3G running iPhone firmware 2.0.1 but cannot unlock iPhone 3G as of now. Based on what the iPhone Dev Team had told us we are assuming that you are still better off not updating iPhone 3G with iPhone firmware 2.0.1 if you would like it to be unlock it.
Here is the list of changes and fixes:
- iPhone/iPod firmware 2.0.1 5B108 support.
- Added new Cydia build.
- Added Installer BETA.
- Added new Custom Package command “RunScript”.
- Added French, Hungarian and Russian language localizations.
- Added path for custom packages “~Library/Application Support/PwnageTool/CustomPackages/”.
- Various bugfixes.
Pwnage Tool is currently only for Mac users. Windows users will either have to wait for latest version of WinPwn Tool (Pwnage tool ported to Windows by another dev team) to be released or someone to figure out a way to achieve this using a workaround on Windows like last time.
Please don’t forget to backup your iPhone before you try the latest Pwnage Tool and as always do let us know how it goes.
Update (Aug 10th, 2008):
"3 of the biggest repositories for jailbroken iPhones and iPod
Touches have released their sources. The RiP Dev source is already in
Installer so you don’t have to add it. . .but you can go ahead and add
the Big Boss and iSpazio sources."

- iSpazio – http://repo.neolinus.org/ispazio/
