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.
