Dev Team Strikes Back: QuickPwn 1.1 and Pwnage 2.1 Released

Take that Apple! The Dev Team has gone and done it again and has struck back at Apple with a vengeance. If you were wondering when you would be able to jailbreak the 2.1 firmware wonder no more... Only one day after Apple released firmware 2.1 the Dev Team responded with not only Pwnage 2.1, but QuickPwn 1.1 as well!

While you may have heard about Apple fighting back the other day against jailbreakers with iTunes 8, this has been taken into consideration by the Dev Team and they've built in the patches to correct the iTunes error.

By the way we figured out a way to combat iTunes 8 without patches…and we’re waiting to see what Apple tries next. But we think they might want to rethink their priorities. They probably won’t though, and so we get back to the “cat and mouse” game between Apple and the Dev Team and other third-party communities.

This software is for Mac users only so Windows users will have to wait a little longer to jailbreak the 2.1 firmware. It is important to note, there is still no available software unlock method for the iPhone 3G. I'm beginning to think we may not see one anytime soon. Like always TiPb takes no responsibility for any wrong doings that may occur while jailbreaking. So please be informed before you give this a try. For more information visit the jailbreaking section in our forums.

So what are you waiting for?! Go ahead and download it!

Dev Team Strikes Back: QuickPwn 1.1 and Pwnage 2.1 Released


@Chris, yes total scam. There is currently no software that unlock the iPhone 3g. Please do not fall for stuff like the link you provided.

There is another site that says they can unlock the 3G iPhone by putting in their SIM card that runs some software. I can't remember the link and I just rebuilt my PC so I don't have it anymore.

I am thinking, maybe it would be a good topic for a post: current state of software unlock development, other unlock possibilities (SIM related) and why the websites like the one I posted above are scams. I am afraid quite a lot of people might fall for the latter ones.

I have a Question ,i am currently running 2.0.2 firmware on a jailbroken 3G thanks for the awesome Dev team . I just saw the release of the new 2.1 itunes 8 version update i jail-broke my phone a few times this has been 3 rd time and now it runs great rarely in lags . Maybe because all of my 3rd Party apps went in through SSH and i took of winterboard because that really slows up the phone. Only thing that is slow is my sync back up takes a while . Do you recommend the new 2.1 jailbreak or should i wait till the kinks iron out. I am really waiting for the Dev team to come through with the Un-lock of the 3G i guess that's why i am holding back . Please give me some advice Thanks

Is unlocking and jailbreaking the same thing? Cause I tried to jailbreak my iPhone 3g and didn't work!

No Jailbreaking is to allow 3rd party apps witch are often cracked such as IPA from app
store Payload apps which you can SSH into your phone which the youtube videos on how to iphone or ipodtouch. Unlock your phone will allow you to use any sim card or pre payed sim cards if travel to other countries. Also i have the 3G but Dev team has not been able to unlock at this point. I jailbroke my ipod touch last night with the new
Pwnage2.1 firmware i haven't yet because i am holding out for the Unlock . Also Hector there might be an error if you are using a mac after i put my touch into Dfu mode and it said successful entered DFU mode ,then i tunes popped up saying error with a red warning sign. what i did was take out the USB chord and held down the home button and re-connected the cord and then into went into the restore mode which will say Itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode you must restore . so after that i went in fine . Also do you have a Mac to do your jail break?

I meant to say sorry ,i haven't Jailbroken my Iphone 3G yet just my ipod touch and so far no problems .

HELP - My son uploaded 2.1 firmware on an unlocked 2G and now he has a brick - running on Win XP? Any help on how to unlock it again or downgrade the firmware? it was running good on 1.4.1
