Pwnage Tool Jailbreak for iPhone 3G and OS 3.0 (for Mac for now) Is Out

As promised recently, the Dev Team has started the release of their user-friendly jailbreak tools for the new iPhone OS 3.0 “ with today ‘s release of Pwnage Tool for Mac.  QuickPwn for Mac and Windows will follow ‘sometime soon ‘.

If you are running an unlocked iPhone 3G using yellowsn0w, and need to remain unlocked, you should NOT use this new Pwnage Tool.  If that is your situation, you ‘ll need to await the upcoming release of the new ultrasn0w tool for unlocking a 3G running 3.0.

Here ‘s a little more detail from the Dev Team ‘s blog post on this initial release:

Because of some bugs and unexpected changes this will be a multipart release, starting with the release of PwnageTool for Mac OS X. QuickPwn for Mac OS X and Windows will follow sometime soon, please don ‘t bug us about it, we are working flat out to get everything finished to release them.

GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a 3G iPhone with yellowsn0w and rely on yellowsn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should NOT use PwnageTool right now. UltraSn0w is not included with this release and therefore your baseband will be locked and unable to use an operator other than the official one it was bought for. UltraSn0w will be release via APT (cydia and icy) soon. If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.0 unlock works with this PwnageTool release.
Yellowsn0w in its current form will NOT work with the baseband version that is present in the 3.0 update, you will need Ultrasn0w, which will be released sometime soon, Ultrasn0w will work with all iPhone 3G models (but not 3GS), even ones that were previously unlockable, Ultrasn0w (when available) will be released via APT (this means you can get it via Cydia or Icy).

There is a lot more detail that you ‘ll need to review and understand before considering the use of the new Pwnage Tool.  To check that out, and for download links, see the Dev Team post HERE.
