Its now been a number of years since iPhone Dev Team unleashed this amazing tool and to say how important the role of ultrasn0w has been to many iPhone users would be an understatement. Anyone who relies on their carrier / network to be unlocked in order to use their iPhone 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4 on another GSM carrier, now has the opportunity to take the iOS 4.3.1 upgrade while remaining unlocked thanks to ultrasn0w 1.2.1.
Its been awhile since we last spoke of anything iPhone jailbreak related from the iPhone Dev Team but this latest news is worth mentioning. The iPhone Dev Team member Musclenerd has provided a screenshot teaser of what the next upcoming Pwnage Tool will do for the iDevice community.
The iPhone Dev Team have released their latest updated version of PwnageTool, 3.1.3. This new jailbreak tool extends its reach to the third generation iPhone 3GS as well as second generation iPod Touch. For those who would like full confirmation, the new PwnageTool 3.1.3 now supports iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and first and second gen iPod Touch.
If you’ve got a non-jailbroken iPhone 3GS running 3.1, now’s your chance to redeem it into a proper iPhone once more. The upgraded PwnageTool allows the 3GS (and the second gen iPod touch) to be jailbroken thus allowing users to gain access to third party apps on Cydia for example. That’s the good news, there is one bad news though. The new PwnageTool still lacks the ability to jailbreak brand new iPhones which have come straight-out-of-the-box installed with iPhone OS 3.1.
As we have reported just a few days ago, if you’re an iPhone 3G / 3GS user who’s unlocked your iPhone using ultrasn0w, you’re advised not to update to the latest iPhone OS 3.1.1 (3.1) which was released earlier this week.

Apple has just made available through iTunes iPhone OS firmware version 3.1.1 (or just 3.1 as many are calling it). Its a major update covering a number of new fixes and support for the new iTunes 9 (full details of the software update after the break) However, if you’re an iPhone 3G / 3GS user, and you have unlocked your iPhone using the iPhone Dev Team’s ultrasn0w unlocking tool / software / application, you are advised to hold back just for a few days.
Just heads up to all PC users that the iPhone Dev Team’s latest release of redsn0w is compatible with Mac OS X and PC. Redsn0w has very similar functionality to Quickpwn, it will jailbreak firmware OS 3.0 running on first and second generation iPhone, iPhone 3G, first and second generation iPod Touch but not iPhone 3GS – now also jailbreaks iPhone 3GS!
If you’re a PC user and haven’t been able to use Pwnage Tool for jailbreaking your device due to its Mac OS X specificity then redsn0w is definitely worth having a look at as it essentially provides the same outcome. For full details, check out our full guide.
