PwnageTool 4.2 For iOS 4.2.1 Untethered Jailbreak For iDevices

PwnageTool 4.2 For iOS 4.2.1 Untethered
It is while since jailbreak war and we wrote about iPhone Dev Team. Well for everyone's delight,  iPhone Dev team just released their latest jailbreak tool,  PwnageTool 4.2 for iOS 4.2.1. This version uses the same exploit used by Chronic Dev Team, to release greenpois0n RC6 that was released few days ago. (Please note that the exploit used in this jailbreak has been fixed by Apple in it's iOS 4.3 beta seeds, mean this will not work with iOS 4.3. So do not upgrade to new iOS 4.3 when it arrives.)

This means iPhone unlockers can safely restore to a custom 4.2.1 pre-jailbroken IPSW and retain their current baseband and unlock.  PwnageTool also supports all the other 4.2.1 devices other than iPod touch 2G:
  • iPhone 3G
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 4
  • iPhone 4-Verizon
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPad
  • AppleTV 2
PwnageTool 4.2 is only available for MAC OS X plat form and the windows users got to wait or can use the information provided in yet to publish article 'Snowbreeze 2.2" which will allow windows users the utilize the same exploit.
PwnageTool 4.2 will allow iPhone users, safely restore to a pre-jailbroken iOS 4.2.1 firmware and yet retain their current baseband so that they can use Ultrasn0w to unlock their GSM iPhone. The new version of PwnageTool also takes care of iBooks problems and Wi-Fi problem on Apple TV 2G.

You can get the PwnageTool 4.2 from iPhone Dev Team and it's mirrors.
