Yay! Finally the Pwnage Tool for iPhone 2.0 has been released.. The Dev Team has released a working jailbreak for iPhone 3G and a working unlock/jailbreak for iPhone 2G..

The most important thing is that firmware 2.0 was just released on 11th July, which meant Dev Team had an jailbroken firmware 2.0 on the iPhone 3G in just a space of 8 days.. Neat achievement I must say..

If you have an older generation of iPhone and you can’t wait to try out the apps from the app store on your unlocked iPhone, download Pwnage tool 2.0 immediately.. At the moment it is Mac only, but a windows version is on its way as I speak.

If you are casual jailbreaker, or if you simply want to unlock your iPhone, you might probably want to hold out for another week or so, so that the dev team can iron out the bugs and Pwnage becomes even more stable. Considering the kind of pressure the dev team has been through the Pwnage tool is a wonderful achievement on their part. It will only get better with time. At the moment though its still not ready for the average guy, atleast not as easy as using ZiPhone.

But since the unlock for iPhone 3G isn’t out yet, its not currently a part of the Pwnage tool. You can unlock the older generation of the iPhone, while jailbreak is supported on both the generations.

Follow this guide to use Pwnage tool to unlock your old iPhone or jailbreak the iPhone 3G..

Please let us know in the comments if you succeeded in jailbreaking/unlocking your iPhone using the Pwnage tool

No Installer.app support, Cydia is lacking consumer applications but I see that filling up in time. Install still requires some level of “tech savvy” i foresee another week will see a “more friendly” install interface.

@Steve, At the moment there are not many apps but that will surely change over the coming weeks since developers need to port their applications over to work in 2.0..

And apparently Installer.app will be released in the coming few weeks..
