Warning: Do Not Update to 2.2 Firmware

23 11 2008

This is a reminder that those interested in a software unlock should not update to the 2.2 firmware until instructions are made available. Quoted from iPhone Dev-Team, the developers of QuickPwn and PwnageTool mentioned you better hold off the upgrade.

So, as anticipated our friends the misfits have recently released the long awaited 2.2 update. We can confirm that this update SHOULD NOT be applied using iTunes if you want the chance of a soft-unlock in the near future.

Also,

If you apply this update and you previously relied on PwnageTool or QuickPwn to activate your phone, it may become temporarily deactivated and unusable (until we release the new version of PwnageTool or QuickPwn).

The existing version of QuickPwn and PwnageTool was designed for jailbreak and unlock firmware 2.1. You should expect the next version of the tools can jailbreak firmware 2.2 and will be released very soon as the team noted,

We believe that our Pwnage technique (and therefore the Jailbreak) isn’t affected, but PwnageTool and QuickPwn do not support this release as yet, so DO NOT install 2.2 using iTunes as you will lose your jailbreak.

and

PwnageTool and QuickPwn updates will be released as soon as possible that will allow a safe update path to 2.2.

So, please hold off the upgrade and stay tuned. Considering that the iPhone Dev-Team is one step closer to finishing the unlock, I would strongly recommend you wait until i post the proper upgrade tutorial.
