If you are running the latest version of firmware (2.0.2) on iPhone or iPhone 3G and have a Mac and want to Jailbreak your device to get Cydia and version 4 on there, you are in luck. The iPhone dev team has a tool called QuickPwn for Mac OS X that is similar to its sister app PwnageTool 2.0.3, but is designed for quickly pwning a device, whereas PwnageTool is designed to custom build and tailor the ipsw production process.

This version of QuickPwn requires iPhone software version 2.0.2 so if you haven’t upgraded to that you can get it using iTunes and then use the QuickPwn tool. If you don’t have 2.0.2 firmware on your iPhone or iPod touch, this won’t work!

Update: If you have updated to iPhone software version 2.1, you can download the new version of QuickPwn for 2.1 for Windows. You will also need to download the Bootloader files for iPhone Classic.

Update: If you have firmware update 2.2 and want to jailbreak your iPhone, you can use the latest version of QuickPwn for 2.2 firmware update. Instructions for upgrading from a jailbroken firmware 2.1 to 2.1 are listed below.

Update: If you have iPhone software version 3.0, you should be using Redsn0w to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone or iPod touch, depending on which version you have.

Update: If you want to get iPhone software version 3.1, you will need to use Pwnage Tool 3.1 to jailbreak and unlock your iPhone or iPod touch, which is under development and may be supported by now depending on which device you have.

  1. Connect your device and update to firmware 2.2 on iTunes 8.0.2 – your hacked .ipa will remain even when its updated, but all the installed packages from cydia/installer will be removed and will have to be reinstalled.
  2. Download QuickPwn 2.2 for Windows or MAC, and run it and it will ask you to locate the 2.2 ipsw (so make sure you have this downloaded)
  3. Follow the instruction and you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch with 2.2
  4. After a reboot, open iTunes and allow it to sync. You can still use the Mobile patch 2.1

You can download the official release of QuickPwn from the following torrent files. Tip: Use “Archive Utility” that ships with OS X to unzip the .tbz file you download. Don’t unzip the .tbz file you download with “The Unarchiver” tool.

    Okay so i unlocked my phone when it had 2.2.1 and it was cool, i upgraded to 3.0 and it erased all my apps i had stored in “categories”, i paid it no mind because i figured that once i upgraded to the iphone 3gs and used the backup from 3.0 and unlocked it again it would be ok. Well i can’t unlock it, im stuck with the 3gs and have 85 applications that even if i sync thru itunes they will not show up anywhere on my phone because they were placed in folders, so they are still on the phone i just cant use them!!!

    restore to 2.1 while doing this you will get message ( error ) when you get this close iTunes and connect to the program you used to jail brake, and follow the instructions them close that program and connect back ti itunes and it will finish restoring. I lost my iPod. I can put music into it, but I got my vidio camera back. If anybody knows how I can get back my ipod please let me know.
