    Exclamation Dev Team retires QuickPwn 3.0 :(
    hi evry1, yesterday i got an email from QuickPWN (as i was subscribed to it) which stated this:

    "Jailbreakers: I know a lot of you here are waiting on a QuickPwn 3.0 download for the iPhone OS 3.0 firmware, but unfortunately Dev Team has decided to retire the QuickPwn program. QuickPwn.com is working on making it and plans to have the QuickPwn 3.0 jailbreak released by Friday this week (possibly earlier, but we donít want to get your hopes up). If youíre using iTunes 8.2, the current QuickPwn will not work on it but we are working on fixing this in QuickPwn 3.0. If anyone has experience creating jailbreaking/unlocking software and would like to help with the QuickPwn 3.0 jailbreak please e-mail webmaster[@]quickpwn.com."

    Actually, Quickpwn gave you more options, like installing boot images, cydia & icy and bypassing activation.

    well you can do those after you install cydia, so basically same thing. Doesn't redsnow by pass activation???

    you want bootlogos? use pwnagetool

    redsn0w works fine. and is by the dev team. im sure they retired it for a reason. bootlogos n stuff will more then likely come later with redsn0w. i mean wasn't quickpwn pretty whack at first, then got better over time?
    1.1.1>1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2>3.1>3.1.2 blackra1n'd

    Quickpwn.com is not a dev team site! The Dev team decided to go with "Redsn0w" b/c they didn't want to continue to support those THIEVES by association! planetbeing tweeted something to this effect several hours ago.

    Of course they do! They make $$ off ads on their site and they didn't create the Quickpwn program. They are attracting people to their webbsite with a product they don't have rights to. They are making enough $$ off the ads to be running a free 3GS giveaway. If you made a FREE program which you spend countless hours writing... lets call it "alek"... and someone bought the website "alek.com" and was generating income from it wouldn't you be the least bit upset?! Come on dude... think.

    Okay, that makes sense. I was extremely curious why they would suddenly "retire," especially as they had already jailbroken OS 3.0 in its beta stage.

    So, in fact, they did not retire. They just changed the name of their software. RedSn0w is written by the dev team, no?

    I want to be able to select my own partition size in Windows. It sucks having to bother a Mac user for a custom partition. How hard could it be to add a partition manager to the Windows jailbreaking software?

    Quickpwn will go the way of the roadside once the devs have perfected their redsnow

    I think all google searches for Qucikpwn 3.0 should return queries showing how this guy is scamming folks.
