PwnageTool For Windows May Be Released Soon
iPhone Dev team had released PwnageTool 4.1.2 for Mac, which allows users who want to jailbreak and also unlock their iPhone to update their iPhone with a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1 firmware while preserving the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.
Sn0wbreeze developed by iH8sn0w has always been considered the unofficial PwnageTool for Windows but looks like chpwn, iPhone developer and hacker is also working on the official PwnageTool for Windows.
MuscleNerd of iPhone Dev Team and iH8sn0w confirmed the news on Twitter:
MuscleNerd: @BaDRaN9 I think @chpwn is mostly there :) True windows version of PwnageTool by someone in the know.
iH8sn0w: @syzwnghani well, looks like chpwn is working on pt for windows, so maybe never,
MuscleNerd: @iH8sn0w seriouslyâ€¦@chpwn is your age, and about to release a better version of PT for win. Donâ€™t *blame* him for that.
So just like PwnageTool for Mac, PwnageTool for Windows will allow users who want to jailbreak and also unlock their iPhone to update their iPhone with a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.1 firmware while preserving the baseband from getting upgraded so that it can be unlocked using Ultrasn0w.
There is no ETA on when the tool will be released. iH8sn0w has also published screenshots of Sn0wbreeze 2.1 for iOS 4.1 few days back, which will use the same exploit that was used in limera1n and is also expected to release it soon.
