The iPhone-dev team released a update on their blog, announcing that the new PwnageTool will be released later today. Version 2.0.2 will allow you to pwn your iPhone + iPod Touch firmware 2.0.1. However the team does warn you not to upgrade your iPhone 3G as of now as the new firmware changes the bl and could make your iPhone 3G unlockable in the future. Read the full post after the break.

PwnageTool 2.0.2 is undergoing final checks and will be packaged, signed and should be uploaded within the next few hours, so count on it being released sometime on Thursday. This will be available via the PwnageTool software updater that is built in and checked when you start PwnageTool, we’ll also publish a link here for direct downloads.

  • As always PwnageTool 2.0.2 contains Cydia, in fact it contains a new version of Cydia with some bugfixes and other general goodness, thanks saurik!
  • Installer 4 isn’t released by RiPDev as yet so PwnageTool 2.0.2 does not include installer.app – check out the RiPDev blog for the latest information.
  • WinPwn uses compatible bundles (as provided by Planetbeing’s XPwn code), so we anticipate that WinPwn will be updated soon after our PwnageTool release, so Windows users shouldn’t have to wait too long! Please remember the DevTeam doesn’t provide end-user support for WinPwn!

Warning: If you care about the possibility of a GSM/3G unlock in the future (there is no unlock as yet), do not update your 3G device unless you do it via PwnageTool 2.0.2 – If you have updated you’ll still be able to Jailbreak using PwnageTool 2.0.2 but it may reduce the chance of you being able to unlock the Phone to be able to use a SIM card from all carriers in the future.

To clarify – PwnageTool 2.0.2 will still provide the jailbreak for 3G users. Meanwhile, we’re still actively pursuing the GSM/3G unlock – stay tuned.

    This will pwn an iphone/itouch ALREADY on 2.0.1? Someone please clarify this! Thanks!

    Yes, it will. The post states that if you have already updated to version 2.01 you can still pwn (jailbreak) your phone, however, your chances of unlocking the phone will be diminished.
