Chronic Dev Team just released the new PwnageTool 4.1 that jailbreaks iOS 4.1 iPhone 4, 3g, 3GS along with iPod Touch 2G / 3G / 4G and AppleTV 2G. According to the official Dev Team Blog, couple of exploits namely Limera1n along with some other have been integrated within the package, making it the most powerful custom firmware iDevice jailbreak tool to date.
The jailbreak is untethered and categorically works on:
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 3G
- iPhone 3GS
- iPad [3.2.2 Firmware]
- iPod Touch 3G
- iPod Touch 4G
- Apple TV 2
This is what the Dev Team has to about the PwnageTool 4.1
PwnageTool allows you to restore to a custom IPSW file. For instance, you can restore to a pre-jailbroken firmware while simultaneously maintaining your current baseband (and thus your ultrasn0w carrier unlock). You can also add whatever packages you want in the “Expert” mode of PwnageTool, if you wish to pre-install Cydia packages. iPhone 3G users get the additional benefit of selecting their own boot and recovery logos, and features like multitasking and battery charge percentage.
PwnageTool’s main advantage to ramdisk-based methods (limera1n, greenpois0n, redsn0w) is for unlockers — those that need to keep their current baseband and preserve their ultrasn0w unlock. But in this new age of both bootrom- and userland-based exploits, it’s an excellent platform for continuing the jailbreak through all future firmwares. More on this later! In the meantime, please enjoy this free software and please provide any usage feedback in our comment section below…
The above statements clearly indicates that all those folks who rely on a carrier unlock are welcome to use this tool in order to jailbreak their iPhone 4, iPhone 3G and 3GS. This tool, unlike previous releases, preserves the device’s baseband which is unlockable with Ultrasn0w. PwnageTool, for now, is intended for MAC users only and we expect a non-mac version to make it out soon too.
