QuickPwn to Jailbreak your iPhone from Windows

“Poorlad” cranked out a windows GUI for the QuickPwn tool, which allows you to jailbreak iPhone’s running the 2.0.2 firmware so you can run 3rd party applicaitons.

The release is just an interim solution for windows users.  Sometime soon, there will be a better supported QuickPwn GUI that uses the same codebase as the mac version.

QuickPwn your iPhone from your Mac

A few days after the latest release of the PwnageTool to allow the installation of unofficial 3rd party apps on the iPhone, the iPhone dev team has released an update to QuickPwn.

QuickPwn is not a replacement for PwnageTool, they are different tools and provide different features, QuickPwn is for quickly pwning a device, whereas PwnageTool is designed to custom build and tailor the ipsw production process, both tools will be actively developed in the future.

Most of you will probably want QuickPwn.  Right now it’s only been released by BitTorrent, but it may be available as a standard download by the time you read this, so check out the iphone dev team’s site for details.


Pwn your iPhone for the Coolest Apps: OS X

It has been a couple of months since Apple released the 2.0 iPhone firmware and launched the iPhone Application Store and now there are over a thousand 3rd party applications that have passed through Apple’s approval process.

Even so, there are still great reasons to install unofficial 3rd party apps, like IM apps and other things that run in the background.  Eventually too, there is the hope of a network unlock for the 3G iPhone.

The ever-awesome iPhone Dev team recently released an updated version of the PwnageTool for OS X which lets you jailbreak iPhones running the 2.0.2 firmware to run third party applications.  For more information, and a link to the file, I refer you to their website:

PwnageTool 2.0.3 is available. This version provides support for iPhone/iPod firmware 2.0.2 5C1, it has an updated Installer.app beta b6 and contains a new .de localization for our large amount of German friends. The application SHOULD ONLY be downloaded as a .tbz file from our servers and should NOT be decompressed using the application called “the unarchiver” this breaks permissions within PwnageTool just use the standard OS X built in ‘Archive Utility’ to decompress. The SHA1 sum of PwnageTool_2.0.3.tbz is 91e670e0c623cd43f5e8cfbfaae6c23d98d8f31b
