PwnageTool and QuickPwn jailbreak 2.1 firmware

updated 11:05 am EDT, Mon September 15, 2008

PwnageTool QuickPwn 2.1

The unofficial iPhone Dev Team has announced the release of new versions of PwnageTool and QuickPwn, capable of jailbreaking iPhones with v2.1 firmware. The team claims to have circumvented the new security features in iTunes 8 that were designed to disrupt hacking. The team's members note, however, that this release of PwnageTool will not yet work with the new iPod touch firmware, as no one on the team owns the matching hardware.

Under the previous version of PwnageTool, iTunes 8 would refuse to sync iPods or iPhones with hacked IPSW files. The Dev Team initially adopted the strategy of working on patches to address the problem, but this method is said to no longer be necessary.

    These programs were released on Saturday. This is very old news.
