The DevTeam has released the PwnageTool 2.0.2 as they promised and now you can once again enjoy all the jailbroken applications on your iPhone 3G. Before you rush into upgrading, you should be aware of what the new PwnageTool does for your iPhone.
The PwnageTool 2.0.2 provides jailbreak for the iPhone 3G, although you have installed Apple’s firmware update 2.0.1. However, in the future it’s possible that you will not be able to unlock the phone which means that you might not be able to use a SIM card no matter what carrier you choose.
In order to update, you should use Sparkle or Finder that will decompress the files, be careful not to use command line tools! Also you ONLY have to download .tbz file because the re-compressed .zip files will generate conflicts. The .tbz files will be decompressed with Apple’s Archive Utility and not with “the unarchiver”.
The PwnageTool 2.0.2 includes a new and bugfixed version of Cydia (enabled by default) with new features, and the Installer 4 (Beta) which is created by RiPDev team. Although the Installer 4 is enabled by default, the main installer package will be reported as missing, but you don’t have to worry as the installer.app is in any mode as default.
Also, we are waiting for the WinPwn to be updated as Microsoft Windows users should also enjoy the tool. Until we “meet” again, I hope your iPhone 3G will not develop any cracks!
