Today, the iPhone Dev Team has officially announced a new method of jailbreaking. This time it will be available for Windows users. Unlike The Pwnage Tool, XPwn, or WinPwn, this method does not, I repeat, does not require a restore in iTunes using a custom firmware of any kind!
The way QuickPwn works is that it will modify the necessary portion of the SSL (Application Processor) inside the iPhone, iPod touch, iPhone 3G. So no restore is necessary. Now, unlocking is a totally different method entirely. Unlocking, remember, has to do with the baseband of the iPhone. Jailbreaking is technically achieved when all files are set for full read and write access.
Currently QuickPwn is in beta stages and isn’t for your average iPhone/iPod touch owner. This requires patience and paying very close attention. If you mess up, just restore back to 2.0.1. it is 100% impossible for QuickPwn to permanently damage your iPhone. QuickPwn can be found here. A few things to note:
THIS IS IN BETA SO BE CAREFUL AND ONLY TRY IF YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE READY!!! Also, this requires a PC running Windows and a jailbroken and pwned iPhone, iPod touch, or iPhone 3G running firmware 2.0.1. Good luck and happy pwning.
