PwnageTool 2.0.2, iPhone 2.1 beta 3 released

updated 11:45 am EDT, Mon August 11, 2008

PwnageTool 2.0.2 out

The unofficial iPhone Dev Team says it has released v2.0.2 of PwnageTool, its comprehensive hacking utility for 3G and 2.5G iPhones. The update incorporates a beta of Installer 4, which sports a new graphical interface and a new repository structure, which should make the download of unauthorized apps faster for users and file providers. Its associated package management interface is not enabled yet however, and the Dev Team notes that Pwnage will (erroneously) claim that installer.app is not available.

Apple is meanwhile said to be seeding a third beta of the iPhone 2.1 firmware to developers. Though the previous version was revealed to include an early version of background push notification, it is currently unclear what is new in beta 3; people are cautioned though that if they upgrade to the new firmware, they cannot restore to older software.

    Pwnage tool???

    I don't give a rat's a** about some hackers releasing a new version of their hacking tools. This does not belong along side a report about Apple releasing a new iPhone beta.

    sure it does

    Since, at least, there's more information on the pwnage tool, as opposed to just some vague "Hey, there's a third beta of unknown change" comment.

    howiethemacguy : it could be 2 news, but I'm glade those hackers release their hacking tool.
    Those tools don't mean piracy (well, as usual, it could be used for that)
    I can do stuffs with my iphone that I otherwise could not do (like ... have a terminal with ssh and other tools on it in case I need to manage my servers in emergency)
