The awesome iPhone dev team has done it again.Ã‚Â They’ve released an updated version of Pwnage that “Jailbreaks” iPhones running the iPhone 2.0 software. Jailbreaking allows you to install unofficial 3rd party apps.Ã‚Â It works with both the original iPhone running the 2.0 OS, and the 3G iPhones.
Apps from the official iPhone Application Store on iTunes can’t have certain functions.Ã‚Â They can’t run in the background, they can’t do VoIP over the cellular network and they certainly can’t unlock the phone for use on other carriers.
Unless you have a good reason too, I’d hold off jailbreaking your iPhone We’re still waiting for an updated version of Install.app to make it easy to install unofficial apps again. An unlock is still in the future too.
