QuickPwn 2.2.5 And PwnageTool 2.2.5 is available for iPhone 2.2.1 Jailbreak (Windows & Mac)

6 02 2009

Just two days after firmware 2.2.1 release, iPhone Dev Team has made the impossible possible again. iPhone Dev Team has just released an updated version of PwnageTool and QuickPwn for iPhone 2.2.1 jailbreak. The updated versions are now available for Windows users.

As I mentioned before, firmware 2.2.1 is only a minor bug fix update. I don’t recommend you to upgrade to this version if you already satisfy with firmware 2.2. But if you insist to upgrade to this latest firmware version for whatever reasons and plan to jailbreak your iPhone, please continue to read on carefully.

For iPhone 2G

If you’re using the 1st generation iPhone, that’s pretty easy for you. The firmware 2.2.1 does not upgrade the baseband of iPhone 2G. So, it’s quite safe to use QuickPwn 2.2.5 or PwnageTool 2.2.5 to jailbreak firmware 2.2.1.

Again, it’s up to you to decide whether you need to upgrade to firmware 2.2.1. For jailbreak, you can download QuickPwn 2.2.5 (Windows) and PwnageTool 2.2.5 (Mac), and follow the same jailbreak guide to jailbreak your iPhone for Windows.

For iPhone 3G

It’s a little-bit complicated for iPhone 3G user, as the firmware 2.2.1 upgrades the iPhone baseband to version 02.30.03. That said, the current version of iPhone 3G unlock application (i.e. yellowsn0w) cannot handle this baseband (at least for now). So, please take note if you plan to jailbreak and unlock iPhone 3G on firmware 2.2.1:

1. If you plan to upgrade to firmware 2.2.1 and unlock iPhone 3G, please do not use QuickPwn 2.2.5. Use PwnageTool 2.2.5, instead. PwnageTool allows you to create a custom version of IPSW that can be updated safely without affecting the baseband. So, you can then use yellowsn0w to unlock iPhone 3G.

2. So, when should you use QuickPwn 2.2.5 on iPhone 3G? If you just plan to jailbreak but NOT to unlock your 3G iPhone, you can use QuickPwn.

Please read the above points carefully and make sure you understand before you dive into the upgrade. Okay, you have made up your mind. You can download QuickPwn 2.2.5 and PwnageTool 2.2.5 here. To unlock iPhone 3G after using PwnageTool, you can download yellowsn0w 0.9.7 via Cydia and perform the unlock.

For the official release note for QuickPwn 2.2.5 and PwnageTool 2.2.5, you can refer to iPhone Dev-Team’s blog.
