iPhone 3.1 Jailbroken for Older iPods and iPhones

Those of you rocking a jailbroken iPhone will be pleased to know that Apple's most recent update to the phone's firmware has been cracked and is safe to install on older generation iPod touches as well as the iPhone 2G and 3G with the help of PwnageTool.

The Dev-Team is back but this time they're doing things a little bit differently. Like we mentioned above, the jailbreak tool will work for both 1G iPod touches, as well as the first iPhone and the 3G iPhone. However, the tool released today will not work with the newest versions of the iPod touch or the iPhone 3GS. Because of changes with Apple's update techniques, this is going to be a multipart release. The Dev-Team said in a blog post published earlier today that they will release a Pwnage tool for the 3GS and new iPod touch as soon as they have something ready.

 "This is the low down on our tools for use with the 3.1 firmware from Apple, please read the whole post in full before attempting anything. Because of changes with Apple’s update techniques (that complicate the 3GS upgrade process) this will be a multipart release. This release starts with PwnageTool 3.1 for Mac OS X - this application supports the iPhone 1st Generation (2G), the iPhone 3G and the iPod touch 1G. NB: THIS DOES NOT SUPPORT THE 3GS OR 2G/3G IPOD TOUCH. redsn0w for Mac OS X and Windows will follow sometime in the near future, please don’t bug us about it - we’ll release when we have something ready."

We'll keep you posted and let you know when the tool is available for the 3GS and new iPod touch. If you're updating older iPod touches and iPhones, check out the full blog post here.

    Yeah they rock... rock bottom that is.

    Apple tax (and this AT&T 70$ a month) is bullshit.

    for crying out loud, apple, just release the f...ing phone unlocked and jailbroken already and everyone will benefit from it...well, except the locusts at AT&T... Just sell the device as is and let customers decide if they want to join this or that network...

    Just Apple? The whole mobile market in the whole world should go the European trend, but sadly for all consumers everywhere (except China maybe, but they have their own problems and firewalls) it is going the opposite way...

    I agree...iPhone is a great tool to break someone from jail. Just set the iPhone up on the window of a Jail cell and let the sun light slighlty hit it...and "BOOM"...Jailbroken.

    If we were to rely on what the companies give us we'd be in a bad position luckily there are others.
