iPhone Dev Team Releases Updated QuickPwn Tool to Jailbreak iPhone running Firmware 2.0, 2.0.1 and 2.0.2

The iPhone Dev Team had recently released a tool called QuickPwn which made it easier and quicker to jailbreak iPhone running firmware 2.0.1.

As promised they have released an updated version of QuickPwn which can now be used to jailbreak iPhone running firmware 2.0, 2.0.1 and also iPhone firmware 2.0.2 which was released last week.

iPhone Dev Team’s QuickPwn tool does not need iTunes-based full restore which makes it quicker and easier to jailbreak iPhone. They have also clarified the following on their blog:

"Using QuickPwn does not update the firmware itself, this tool is
designed to ‘Pwn’ (the ability to install future custom non-Apple
firmwares) , ‘Jailbreak’ and install Installer or Cydia on a given
device. If your device is running 2.0.1 and you QuickPwn it, it’ll
still be running 2.0.1, although it will now be Pwned and Jailbroken,
similarly if your device is running 2.0.2 and you QuickPwn it, it will
then be running 2.0.2 but the device will now be Pwned and Jailbroken.
It will also activate (not unlock) devices that are being used outside
of their intended territories and cannot be activated using iTunes.

If you want to update to 2.0.2 then use the normal iTunes update to
get to 2.0.2 and then use QuickPwn to Pwn, Jailbreak and Activate,
remember that the 2.0.2 update includes a baseband update for the 3G
iPhone, so depending what your long term intentions are for the phone,
update wisely, of course in the upcoming PwnageTool application you’ll
be able to create a custom ipsw without the baseband update enabled."

However, just like the initial version QuickPwn is currently available only for Windows users. The iPhone Dev Team have mentioned that they are working on a Mac version of the tool along with some more tweaks for their Pwnage Tool. They have also reported that they have no further updates on unlocking iPhone 3G.

So if you are facing error 6, 1601, 1602, no signal after using the WinPwn Tool, then you can give this new tool from the dev team a shot as some iPhone users are reporting success using the tool. You can download the latest version of QuickPwn from this link.

Please don’t forget to backup your iPhone before you try pwning your iPhone with QuickPwn.

As always do let us know how it goes.
