    So we’ve been working hard on getting the release ready and during this process we’ve been fixing some final bugs, the actual base of PwnageTool application is working fine and working with all devices that we support. We’ve been restoring our devices to various firmware revisions so that we can try to reproduce the conditions that most users will have. We are able to fully install any applications on any part of the current devices running 2.0 (and b103) and these versions are the iPhone 114, iPhone 2.0, iPhone 3G.

    Apple released an update (b103) just before we were about to release and that support had to be added to the current version, it is pointless to release something that doesn’t work on devices out of the box (we’ve been told new 3Gs will have this firmware), we don’t want drama, and we want to do as little support as possible, so we want to make it right the first time.

    It was lucky that we delayed slightly as we discovered a bug that causes unexpected behavior when using AppStore and third party applications on the same device. We are working on fixing that bug now, we don’t anticipate it is a big one, it has some really odd side effects, causing WiFi dropouts and the loss of stored passwords for WiFi networks. Of course this is only a minor software issue, nothing like the horrible static MAC address that another “elite byte adjuster” forced upon their users.

    So, currently (when released) PwnageTool 2.0 will support:-

    iPhone (1st Gen) with 2.0 - Activated, Unlocked & Jailbroken, (with support for third party applications).

    iPod Touch with 2.0 - Activated & Jailbroken, (with support for third party applications).

    iPhone (3G) with 2.0 - Activated, Jailbroken (with support for third party applications).

    We’ve made some progress on the baseband unlock of the 3G device, but at this point PwnageTool will not support 3G unlocking or BootNeuter on the 3G device. It is, of course supported on the first generation device with 2.0. We’ll push out an update with 3G support if and when it is completed.

    As soon as we fix this up and test a bit more we’ll be ready for release, we’ll get back to you with a release schedule soon.

    Please loosen that seatbelt slightly while our cabin crew serve you complimentary drinks.


    Q: They say that there was an update by apple, the "b103" update ... Is that the update from "5A345" which is the version that the new phones were released with, TO the "5A347" firmware that was released a day or two later?

    Q: They say that "at this point PwnageTool will not support 3G unlocking", can anybody say "TurboSIM"????

    347 was what was released thursday the 10th. 345 was the last beta.
    the new one is the one that came out friday the 11th that also came on the 3G slightly bigger but still designated 347 with the b103 added.

    i also noticed they are saying there is still NO baseband unlock on the 3G. so all the 3g phones will only be activated and jailbroken.
    sucks.

    but hey maybe that means, by the time the unlock (bootneuter) is available for 3G,
    the windows pwnage should be out!

    In Australia they said that if they had an activated 3G they could do a restore in Itunes and the got this firmware update, iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Restore
    After they did that they could use any 3G sim card from any supplier in Australia.

    Here is the guide to do this from the forum.
    Unlocked iPhone - I have one working on 3 - Page 11 - MacTalk Forums

    Ok, well firstly, thanks to Kristine at Optus 2nd Level Support.

    So, what you will need to do:

    1. Plug in iPhone and Restore
    NOTE: If you are on a Mac and have previously restored your iPhone, delete the update file from User Name/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates
    2. Download the update as part of the restore - This should be a file called "iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw"
    3. Let the iPhone do it's thing and flash the unit.
    4. Do initial sync with iTunes then Power Cycle Unit.
    5. Plug back in and Sync.
    6. Power down, change SIM and power up and hey presto you should be right to rock and roll.

    Enjoy your Unlocked iPhone.
    If you want it, get it, no matter the risk, y only live once, and gadgets are replaceable.....
