iPhone 3G Jailbreak Allows to Run Unofficial Apps.

The iPhone Dev Team has released its PwnageTool 2.0.1 that said to be jailbreaking Apple latest iPhone operating system 2.0 on all devices iPhone 1s Gen, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch. According to the post on iPhone Dev Teams blog, an unreleased exploit in the iPhone OS was used to allow non-Apple applications to run on Apple’s iPhone 2.0 platform.
“We adapted our Pwnage technique to the 2.0 firmware, using a new, unreleased exploit that we’d been keeping to ourselves in the hope that Apple wouldn’t patch it. This … enable[s] you to run all the custom software and patches you please.”
There were earlier rumors that suggested the hack would unlock the iPhones allowing users to connect the iPhone to carrier of their choice in the USA. However, the blog clarified "This software does not unlock the phone, it just jailbreaks and activates it. "
Guess people have to payup to AT&T for services for now at least!
