QuickPwn tested, screenshots

August 22, 2008 13 comments

The iPhone Dev Team today released an update to their beta QuickPwn tool complete with GUI by poorlad. It’s now compatible with iPhone and iPod 2.0.2 firmware, so for those brave enough to try beta software and running Windows it’s great. This is a bit of a turnaround to previous tools the Dev Team have released which always seemed to see Mac versions first. Fortunately I have a hard drive with Windows installed in my hackintosh for occasions such as this. Read more…

iPhone/iPod Firmware 2.0.1 released

August 5, 2008 Leave a comment

Available now through iTunes, the iPhone and iPod Touch 2.0.1 Firmware lists ‘bug fixes’ as its only improvement over the 2.0 initial release. Early reviews say the new firmware feels slightly more responsive. Upgrading a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch will at the very least remove access to the apps installed either manually or through Cydia. The new software is also reported to update the iPhone 3G baseband, which makes things more complicated for those waiting for a 3G unlock.

I’ve only recently got access again to my favourite iPod ebook reader, textReader, so I’m not willing to upgrade and lose it again. Hopefully the iPhone Dev Team will have their PwnageTool updated soon to cope with 2.0.1.

PwnageTool 2.0.1 released

In an amazingly fast update, PwnageTool has been bumped to version 2.0.1. No iPhone 3G unlocking yet, this release concentrates on some of the issues early adopters have found.

I’ve just tested the new release and the previous problem with PwnageTool not getting the iPod Touch into DFU mode appears fixed. The install went smoothly with no errors, Cydia is working fine and has installed the latest package updates. I had the same issue with iPhoto not seeing the iTouch screenshots but as before a reboot fixed that.
