  • 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.

      It isn't fair, for now I am NOT going to use cydia. It is my PHONE'S issue. It seems like I am the only one who has this problem. When cydia was actually working it was good. Me saying cydia sucks is just a PERSONAL opinion due to the bad experiences with it. If it didn't have these problems, I would say "CYDIA rocks and I can't wait for installer to come out". I wish I knew what was wrong with my phone. I loved boss prefs and other apps. But whatever the problem that would freeze up my phone, I can't go through restoring my phone a couple times a week. That just gets annoying and is a waste of my time. I will TRY the new version of cydia when cmw comes out with the new version of winpwn. If anything goes wrong then, I probably won't try cydia for a couple months. Hopefully installer won't do the same to my phone either.

      Calm down man!

      I think ONLY the 3G iPhone should not be updated from iTunes

      No problem for 2G iPhones .. right??

      Right. Cause 2G iPhones are already unlocked.

      Thanks for the great info, having Cydia on the 3G has been a plus regardless of the application crashing or not, cause i'm sure even when it crashed on some people... everyone would load the application "again" and proceed to download whatever it is they wanted.
      On the same note, I am thankful to Cydia as thanks to its developers we've gotten most of the apps/themes/utils/toys/etc we currently have in our iPhones 3G (noticed i am speaking as 3G user)

      As for the new firmware I am welcoming to whichever app gets included Cydia and/or installer...

      ....so just bring it!

      Can we assume that when the state "Friday Release", it would be a midnight release?

      Wait... I have thought that installer and cydia have compatibility issues with each other.

      Say i'm already on 2.0.1, this won't affect me at all if all im using the pwnage tool for is to jailbreak, not unlock, correct?

      Can 1.1.4 unlocked via ziphone be upgraded directly to the recent newest FW upgrade via the new pwnage tool, or does it have to go to a pwned 2.0 then pwned 2.0.1? will there be an issues with the fact that it's a ziphone unlock? and yes dev team, i apologize for going the route of the italian. i didn't know better back then (even though i've had no issues since my unlock).

      I don't think it really matters, i mean 2.0.1. is only "bug fixes" and minor bug fixes at that.
      It shouldn't make a difference what you do.

      yea they are definately in a different time zone so for all people who are already at friday and 11:40 pm, most likely it will then be released on saturday for pacific time zone people. Just my guess since the update says (tomorrow) which is friday for them, so our tomorrow is saturday.

      I would reverse that, it would be released for the pacific people on friday and saturday for others. I live in cali and it is not friday yet, well not for another 15 min.

      I waited up last night for the release and this morning I saw the delay till Friday. I'm flying off on Friday, so the upgrade will happen for me when I return.

      Go Dev team!
