  • 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

    From the Dev Blog:

    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.

      I whanted to say this: When we get installer on the Iphone it won't have that many programs on it. They still have to be ported over. I have the bata software on my phone now and there are no programes on there you can really use. We all will have to paient

      btw, to jailbreak. do we have to first do a clean install from itunes for 2.0.1 (like the 2.0 jailbreak), or could we just load the custom built 2.0.1 without doing a fresh install?

      I jailbroke my iPhone 3g with 2.0 firmware and have no intentions of upgrading to 2.0.1 and I have a few questions:

      1) Will I be able to have Cydia updated with the one that is being released in the new pwnage tool?

      2) Will I be able to get installer 4?

      3) Will the apps that come out on Installer also be on Cydia?

      4) Lastly all apps that come out for 2.0.1 will work on my 2.0 firmware right?

      I am very happy with my 2.0 a bit of lag with SMS but I only SMS very rarely. Alos Cydia is awesome never had a problem at all so i find no need to upgrade yet unless there is copy and paste. Hope someone can answer the above questions for me.

      Thanks!

      This is why people screw up pwning their phones... Didnt you read the thread starter?? I mean really.. It specifically states not to load the firmware from itunes.... READ READ READ


      And I also wanted to add about Cydia. I really dig Cydia, and the new installer looks plush, but Cydia has been really awesome, and with the updates its had, there have been fewer crashes and it runs much faster than installer ever thought of. With that said, Installer was our friends until 2.0 and Im sure its going to be awesome, but Saurik did it right with Cydia and Im really happy with it.

I use to love installer also and so far cydia crashes sometimes but that's cuz it just came out but it is by far better than the old installer.
      I am open to new things. That's why I tried cydia, it sucked, it froze my phone to the point where i had to reset it. Then it would freeze on the boot screen. This happened 5 TIMES!!! The last time it froze was when it was updating the bigboss source. That day I was without my phone from 7-5 because I didn't have access to a computer until I got home. The bottom line is Cydia sucks, Installer never made my phone freeze EVER!!!

      I have never had a problem with Cydia. Can't wait to upgrade and re-jailbreak. I put 2.0.1 on my girlfriends phone and it is a lot more stable.

      yeah I think it is just an issue with my phone. Other those problems cydia was fine for me. I'm just sick of restoring my phone, which takes a while. Some of you might say the issue is with me, not my phone. But where the progress circle doesn't move at all for an hour, I would say that the phone froze. Other people might say that it could have moved when you weren't looking and you were impatient, so it's your fault. What are the odds that the progress circle moves to the same spot everytime I look at it, maybe

      I'll wait till they are both out and I've actually used them side by side before I judge them.

      I agree and chapelfreak that sounds like it's you're phone only that doesn't mean cydia sucks it just doesn't work for you for some reason and just like dash-2 I will wait for the new installer comes out to judge them again because I compared cydia to installer the old one. So let's see what happens

      chapel freak, you are trying to compare a older, polish version of installer to a freshly coded cydia: its just not a fair comparison

      Good that installer will be included. I never used cydia and I like installer. We'll finally get to see which is better.

      I just may jailbreak soon.

      you guys still make everyone view "and read" a page of info about rules of this site and appropriate posting guidelines?

      i remember that thing. i actually read it.
      forgot alot of it too.

      maybe you guys could add some stuff about how things work (from a dev perspective) and what goes into these FREE hacks and programs.

      then instead of letting them jump right in to the forums after they finish "reading" it
      take them straight to a questionaire requiring them to answer a certain amount of questions about the previous page correctly.

      if they pass, membership.
      if they fail, deny em.
      or even better charge em and put a paying member sign under their name so we show them courtesy when they ask 15 times over four posts,
      " i ToTaLlY jAcKeD mY iPhOnE, Yo!!!!, soMeOne HelPZZZZ ME!!!!"
      or
      "when is the g3 1st gen 32gb iphone gonna be unlocked? email me, i need help!"


      just a thought.
      hope it made ya laugh at least.


      kudos dash, statement of the month!
      "i will wait and compare them both!"
      genius.
      wish everyone was like that!

      i think installer loads way slow, but the new one may not.
      cydia loads in the background and has fixed not being able to add sources.

      this could be a tie!
