  • PwnageTool 2.0.2 & Installer 4 Soon
    Update: It will be released tomorrow (friday)

    According to their blog, the dev team will be releasing PwnageTool 2.0.2 sometime soon -- perhaps today. The release will be available through the built in updater in the current version of PwnageTool and via direct download for new users.

    What to expect:
    • Ability to pwn iPhone firmware version 2.0.1
    • An updated version of Cydia with bugfixes
    • Update: Installer 4 will be included with this release!
    • No 3g unlock

    The dev team also warns on their blog that you should not upgrade to firmware 2.0.1 via iTunes. Wait until PwnageTool 2.0.2 is released and upgrade to 2.0.1 with a custom ispw. Upgrading directly via iTunes will lessen the chances of you being able to unlock in the future. The dev team is still working on a 3g unlock solution.

    thanks Mooseman

    Installer 4 and PwnageTool 2.0.2

    We’ve just had word that our friends at RiPDev almost have Installer 4 (Beta) ready for public beta release, with that awesome news we’ve decided to include it in the PwnageTool 2.0.2 release, we are waiting for the software from them and we need to quickly test and add a small couple of changes that go alongside Installer.

    Expected release date: Friday August 8th.

      NOT RELEASING TODAY BUT THEY ARE MAKING IT AVAILABLE TMOZ (FRIDAY) WITH NEW INSTALLER


      Installer 4 and PwnageTool 2.0.2
      We’ve just had word that our friends at RiPDev almost have Installer 4 (Beta) ready for public beta release, with that awesome news we’ve decided to include it in the PwnageTool 2.0.2 release, we are waiting for the software from them and we need to quickly test and add a small couple of changes that go alongside Installer.

      Usually we don’t give release dates, this is so we don’t feel pressured into releasing something if it isn’t ready, or we can hold off if something comes up in the last minute (last time this was the addition of the 3G jailbreak), today we thought we were releasing, and you guys seemed restless (we read the comments) so we said “sometime today”.

      We think the Installer 4 beta is big news, and I’m sure lots of you guys want it and because of this the release should now take place sometime tomorrow (Friday), we want to do all this in one hit, we don’t want to make two releases in two days (we all have day jobs too!).

      We don’t want to keep you guys refreshing and commenting to ask where the latest update is, so we thought we’d just tell you now.

      Please don’t wait up for us, PwnageTool 2.0.1 with shiny new stuff is coming very soon.

      well i upgraded officially and i didnt lose app store apps but it broke the jailbreak ect but because this is pwned an havnt a clue im sure it will fresh pwn with the upgraded cydia and the new installer so im going to hazard a guess and say yes all customs apps will have to be re installed!

      i may be wrong

      Any time you build a new custom firmware and restore you have re-install all your apps again.

      Pardon my ignorance but when you said "No 3G unlock" is that referring to SIM Unlock or not able to jailbrake 3G phones?

      Sweet! Installer 4 will be great . Cydia is more of a developer package manager anyways. Installer is more welcoming to new users. Tomorrow will be a great Friday

      Is there a way to backup the info/data from Jailbroke Apps, or even the app itself, before upgrading with PwnageTool 2.0.2? Just wondering.

      I think you just have to find the folder/file that the jailbroken 3rd party app stores its data in and copy that folder prior to doing your restore or Pwn.

      Then re-install the app and then SSH back into the phone and replace the data folder/file with the one you backed up.

      Worked for me on my original iPhone for such apps as PocketMoney, etc.
