iPhone/iPod 2.2 Jailbreak now available

November 23, 2008 1 comment

The iPhone Dev Team have updates their QuickPwn tool for Windows/Mac and Pwnage tool for Mac to support the latest 2.2 firmware. Full details and bittorrent download links are available from their blog, the software is also showing up on several other bittorrent sites. Before charging in I would recommend reading the post at the iPhone Dev Team site as there is a lengthy guide to which version you should use for each iDevice. Both versions have just arrived at Basshead Towers so I’ll be trying them out and posting some screenshots as soon as I finish typing.

Once again thanks to the iPhone Dev Team for their continued support of the jailbreak community, and hopefully certain news web sites will be a bit more positive this time around.

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.

The iPhone Dev Team has released Pwnage 2.0 for jailbreaking and unlocking 1st gen iPhones, jailbreaking the V2 iTouch and iPhone 3G. Only firmware 2.0 is supported in this version.

I’ve tried unlocking my iTouch this morning with mixed results. The creation of the modified firmware completed with no problems but the process failed when PwnageTool tried getting the iTouch into DFU mode to enable iTunes to restore the new firmware. iTunes wouldn’t install the firmware when I manually put the iTouch into DFU mode. I eventually got around that by starting with the iTouch in DFU mode, coming out of it and going back in when the PwnageTool prompted. Following the PwnageTool instructions got the iTouch into a state where iTunes could restore the new firmware. Other users have reported success starting the process with the iDevice disconnected, and connecting when prompted to enter DFU mode. Read more…
