[iPhone] PwnageTool Release Candidate and QuickPwn Beta available

Our fellow iPhone Dev Team is unrestingly working for the entire iPhone/iPod Touch community. The team today released a release candidate of their well known PwnageTool (version 2.0.3), that now supports firmware 2.0.2 5C1. PwnageTool 2.0.3 is only available for MacOS X.

Moreover they released another Beta of the QuickPwn tool. In contrast to PwnageTool QuickPwn lets you simply update your iPhone using the internal updater of iTunes. After that QuickPwn helps you to activate, jailbreak and unlock (only for iPhone 2G). QuickPwn is available for Microsoft Windows only. It is not recommended to use it in a virtual machine, since USB ports may not be running in real time.

If you are using your iPhone not only as a gadget, but as a productive device: we recommend to not use either PwnageTool Release Candidate or QuickPwn Beta right now. You may stick to iPhone firmware 2.0 or 2.0.1 for another week. Once the final version of one of the tools is available we’re gonna release a simple step-by-step tutorial.

Big shouts from Germany ;-) fly out to the iPhone Dev Team.

[Update] In forums people report problems with the mail authentication (Mail.app) after running Pwnage 2.0.3 RC. Although a manual solution for this issue is simple (have SSH installed and chmod 0777 /var/Keychains Shouts to Nettwerk), we don’t recommend to update now.
