quickpwn-299x300Well, the folks of the iPhone DevTeam have done it again. Just 1 day after the new iPhone firmware is out, the iPhone DevTeam have their new release out. Pwnage Tool and QuickPwn 2.2.5 are Jailbreak solutions for the new 2.2.1 iPhone firmware.

So, is it safe? Here’s what you should know:

1st gen iPhone owners have no worries. Create your custom firmware and restore, via iTunes, or just update in iTunes and run QuickPwn.

1st gen iPod Touch users: same as above.

iPhone 3G users: the new firmware contains a baseband update, rendering yellowsn0w useless. Until there is an update to yellowsn0w, you will need to use the PwnageTool to create a custom firmware, downgrading the baseband, and then restore in iTunes. Then you will be able to unlock with yellowsn0w 0.9.7, via Cydia.

2nd gen iPod Touch users: sorry, you’re outta luck. Still no Jailbreak for this device.

Torrent file for PwnageTool 2.2.5 for Mac OSX is here

UPDATE: QuickPwn 2.2.5-2 for Windows in here

There’s a couple of other things to note:

Mac OS X 10.5.6 has a bug which affects putting your device in DFU mode. There are a few hacks out there fixing this, but this is what the DevTeam has suggested:

  1. You will need an account with ADC (Apple Developer Connection) this is free and takes a few minutes to sign up, you should read the terms and conditions carefully and you should only sign up if you are thinking of developing applications in the future – http://developer.apple.com/mac/
  2. Download the disk image “IOUSBFamily Log release for Mac OS X 10.5.5 Build 9F33” (yes, that is a “5” in 10.5.5 – this is a developer debug package of the USB kernel extension).
  3. Install IOUSBFamily-315.4.1.pkg from within the disk image
  4. Reboot your system!

There have also been updates to some of our favourite apps in Cydia, to make them compatible with the new firmware. The ones I have noticed are Qik, Notifier, and Mobileinstallation Patch, but there will be others. Just open Cydia, and it will automatically tell what upgrades are available for you.

Good luck!
