***** Update: You can upgrade iPhones or 1st Generation iPod Touches (No support for newer versions yet), Pwnage 2.2.1 is Out! *****
For the first time since the first iPhone was out, an Unlock was available pre-Jailbreak release! Dev-Team’s YellowSn0w unlock still works with the new firmware, yet Pwnage tools to jailbreak the iPhone or iPod Touch were scarce (Read the earlier feed about that, and what features are added by the upgrade in general, here) until moments ago… So before the release of a jailbreaking tool, you could have upgraded to have a phone working but without all the goodies that come along with jailbreaking, so it was advised to wait until the release of a Pwnage update before doing so. But now the wait is over!
Dev-Team has done it once more and in less than 48 hours fixed this issue where we can once more do it all! The guide is here:
However, read the instructions well because they are advising to use Pwnage Tool (Only available on Macs) and not QuickPwn, because the manual settings in it prevent the possible ruining of issues related to future updates…
If you want to understand the difference between Activation, Jailbreaking and Unlocking, refer to our guide about that here.
Many rumors have it that a nano version is about to come to life… However, there was an official denial of such gossip, yet with the release of this firmware update, meta data found on the system files suggest that even though a nano version is unlikely, a new iPhone model may very well be on its way. How do they know? Well history repeats itself and before the 3G version was released similar meta data was found to hint the possibility of a new iPhone model….
