Yes, it’s true. Only 9 days after the iPhone 2.0 firmware was released, the fine folks at the iPhone Dev Team have released the latest unlock/jailbreak/activation tool. The new tool will Jailbreak all iPhone and iPod Touch devices and will unlock all 1st generation iPhones. The tool currently will not unlock the iPhone 3G, but they are working on it.

I have already upgraded my 1st gen iPhone to the 2.0 software, and used Pwnage Tool 2.0 to unlock/jailbreal/activate it. It worked like a charm, the first time, and I have had no major issues yet. This is truely a great piece of software. It is currently only available for Mac OS X, but a Windows version is coming.

The new tool is very easy to use with step by step procedures to doing the unlock. It even helps get your iPhone into DFU mode. (this can get trickiy!!).

I know not many people read this blog, so the links above should download fairly quickly.
