PwnageTool Jailbreak on iOS 4.1: Preview before Release

By Alan Ng - Oct 16, 2010

We have some good news for those of you who are waiting for the PwnageTool jailbreak for iOS 4.1 devices, as iPhone Dev-Team member Musclenerd has just released a video previewing the updated software.

As reported from RedmondPie, the new version of PwnageTool will be based on geohot’s Limera1n jailbreak exploit, but will allow you to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch device without updating the baseband – which is important for those who want to unlock it afterwards.

PwnageTool is expected to release this Sunday, Musclenerd has provided a quick video teaser, which shows him using PwnageTool to restore his iPad to a pre-iOS 3.2.2 custom firmware.

For those of you who didn’t use GreenPois0n or Limera1n, the updated version of PwnageTool will be the best solution available to all. Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts on it.

Are you waiting for PwnageTool tomorrow?

      This is supposed to jailbreak every iDevice out there except maybe the first iPod and iPhone because they can't run OS 4

  • Felipe

    If I already used Limera1n to jailbreak, can I use Pwnagetool to unlock?

    • bbh

      Pwnagetool is NOT an unlocking tool. Depending on your baseband, you prpbably need snowbreeze to unlock… HOWEVER, if you updated to 4.1 through iTunes, you updated your baseband to one that is unsupported at the moment.
