iPhone Dev Team has released the PwnageTool 2.0, which brings jailbreaking and non-App Store third-party application support to firmware 2.0-equipped iPhone / touch handhelds. Although first-gen iPhones can also be unlocked, the iPhone 3G cannot be unlocked or used with BootNeuter, which gives you control of the S-Gold bootloader and baseband.
There are several mirrors from which to download, however, the group's own "poor wounded server" was down as of this writing--the price of success I suspect.
With any early release, discretion is often the better part of valor, though the lads have on the whole performed well in the past.
Editor's note: I would love to see statistics on where Pwnage tool is downloaded and used. It would make for interesting reading...
What's your take?
