It is rumored, the Pwnage Tool for firmware 2.0 (= firmware 1.2) will not be released this weekend. Enjoy youself and don’t play around until we tell you.
Anyway the iPhone Dev Team has released a video of Pwnage Tool 2.0. See here:
The iPocalypse has begun. Many iPhone 3G customers all over the world report activation issues after having bought their new gadget. The same also applies to customers of the “old” iPhone who tried to update to firmware 2.0 and needed to re-activate.
We recommend weather to upgrade nor to buy a new iPhone 3G now. Stay tuned.
It is rumored that the iPhone Dev Team yet made it to jailbreak and unlock firmware 2.0. The firmware revision that has been found some hours ago on Apple’s download servers seems to be the real deal, although not being published via auto-update yet.
The Pwnage Tool is currently undergoing little modifications and testings to fully support firmware 2.0. Note that these information seem to apply to the iPhone 2G only, not the new iPhone 3G. Since the new iPhone is expected to use a new bootloader version.
