As some people may have noticed before Pwnage Tool 2.0 was released, the iPhone-Dev Team posted some rather cryptic messages in between their posts, well they explain what they meant in their latest post.

Here are the CRACKED messages

Also some people have asked about the cryptic posts that we made during the run up to the release of PwnageTool 2.0, here are the explanations.

Oh My!Is it a bird? these were screenshots of the tooltips from a beta of PwnageTool 2.0 with “Oh My!” being something that George Takei says alot and “Is it a bird” referring to Superman.

West we go! Go West is a film by the Marx Brothers, we decided on the use of Harpo and Einstein images for buttons in PwnageTool so we ran with that.

Our sources are hidden… Einstein once made a quote “The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.” again we were referring to the button in PwnageTool.

Position freely! This was a sneek peak at one of the icons from the upcoming installer4 application, this refers to the independence and choice offered by Cydia and Installer.

And now for something completely different…. This is reference to a Monty Python, John Cleese often said “And now for something completely different” as a segue in-between sketches during the excellent Monty Python’s Flying Circus. We opted for pythonesque imagery in the DFU game in PwnageTool so we thought it would be a cool reference.

Living in sweet harmony! This is of course referring to AppStore and Cydia working hand in hand on 2.0.

2.0 Demo aka “to all the haters…” This is a song by culture club. With the famous lyrics “Do you really want to hurt me? of course sung by Boy George  *cough*

Bootneuter 2.0 aka Flash! This is Queen’s “Flash Gordon” which is synchronized with the pressing of the “Flash” button in BootNeuter.

iBoot unlaced…. This is referring to the hack of iBoot, where we are the cobblers.

The Last Supper… This is was about the little run-in with geohot and co. Yes the counter was bogus, it didn’t mean anything.

World’s 1st Jailbroken 3G Phone Music by Phil Oakley – Together In Electric Dreams, we didn’t pour champagne on the iPhone to Jailbreak it ;)

Boldog Születésnapot! – This is “happy birthday” in Hungarian it was directed at one of our team-members, it also mentioned “a downloadable birthday gift, coming soon” :)

Sundays – We were hinting at a 2.0 release that day.

SugarBowl Sweetness – SugarBowl is the Apple codename for a 2.0 firmware release.

As you can see the cryptic messages were just fun and there was some method to the madness ;)

Hope this helped any of the people who were wondering what they meant.
