Yesterday was the release of Pwnage Tool 2.0. Immediately I downloaded the tool although I was having trouble actually trying to download it, I guess their server was being hit.. anyways, I was using wget to download it. Well after I manage to download it, of course I unlocked my iPhone first generation with firmware 2.0. What does this mean? It means, I can have my iPhone be more like a computer, now I can connect to it via ssh, and use T-Mobile if I wanted to.. Official third-party apps continue to work. It’s better than ever.
If you need to unlocked firmware for your own phone download it here..
How to use the custom firmware? simply just plug your iphone holding the power button and the home button for about 10 seconds and iTunes says you are in recovery mode. That is a good sign. After you need to option click on recover button to browse for the unlocked firmware. Then just sit back and let iTunes do whatever it does.. Enjoy.
