Just a day after the new iPhone Software 2.2 has been released, the guys at the iPhone DevTeam have managed to crack it, and QuickPwn 2.2 has been released for Mac and Windows.
As well as the release of Quickpwn 2.2 for Mac and Windows, they have also released Pwnage 2.2 for Mac.
- GOLDEN RULE: If you have a 3G iPhone and want potential soft unlock in the near future do NOT use QuickPwn, and do not use the official ipsw or the iTunes update process without using PwnageTool.
- Read item 1 again and again.
- At the bottom of this post are the bittorrent files for the latest versions of PwnageTool and QuickPwn.
- These are suitable for the recent 2.2 release.
- Please read all parts of this post before downloading and using these tools.
- The ˜late 2008 MacBook/air/pro line of computers have an issue with DFU mode. While its possible to go from Pwned 2.1 -> Pwned 2.2 (using PwnageTool), you cant yet go from stock to pwned. If in any doubt use a different machine.
- Choosing the correct tool is crucial. Be warned!
