The iPhone Dev Team has released their latest iPhone jailbreak tool – PwnageTool 3.0! This latest version of PwnageTool will allow anyone with an iPhone or iPhone 3G to jailbreak the just-released iPhone OS 3.0 update. Itâ€™s important to note that PwnageTool 3.0 will only work on previous-gen hardware running iPhone 3.0 OS – the iPhone 3G S will not work with PwnageTool 3.0.
PwnageTool will unlock your first-gen iPhoneâ€™s baseband (the little piece of code that controls which carrier network your iPhone can connect to). Unfortunately, iPhone 3G users will have to wait until Tha Team releases their latest iPhone 3.0 OS unlock utility, called â€œultrasn0w.â€
Itâ€™s important to note that the previous â€œyellowsn0wâ€ iPhone 3G unlock utility canâ€™t unlock the 3.0 baseband. Only â€œultrasn0wâ€ can unlock the new baseband bundled with the iPhone OS 3.0. If youâ€™re using an unlocked iPhone 3G, youâ€™ll probably want to wait until the â€œultrasn0wâ€ utility is released through Cydia. Upgrading to 3.0 now will lock your iPhone until â€œultrasn0wâ€ is release (Via IntoMobile)
