iPhone Dev-Team Releases 2.2.1 Jailbreak

The iPhone Dev-Team has released Mac versions of PwnageTool and QuickPwn that jailbreak the 2.2.1 iPhone firmware.

We will update all our tutorials very soon with new instructions. Please note a windows version of QuickPwn is expected soon.

-----
1. GOLDEN RULE: If you have a 3G iPhone running 2.2 firmware and you want to keep your ability to use yellowns0w (or the option to use it in the future) do NOT use QuickPwn, and do not use the official ipsw or the iTunes update process without using PwnageTool.
2. Yellowsn0w will NOT work with the baseband version (02.30.03) that is present in the recent 2.2.1 update - you will need to create a custom ipsw that will allow you to update safely without affecting the baseband.
3. Please read all parts of this post before downloading and using these tools.
4. Read items 1, 2 and 3 again and again.
5. At the bottom of this post are the bittorrent files for the latest versions of PwnageTool and QuickPwn.
6. These apps are suitable for the recent 2.2.1 release.
7. The Yellowsn0w version has been updated to 0.9.7. Yellowsn0w is available from Cydia or Installer - this version allows compatibility with pwned 2.2.1 system (not baseband) - again - remember 0.9.7 yellowsn0w DOES NOT WORK WITH 2.2.1 (02.30.03) directly - you need to be running a ‘pwned’ version of 2.2.1 which doesn’t upgrade the baseband.
8. Users of OS X 10.5.6 will be unable to use DFU mode correctly, please see the note towards the end of this post to easily fix this issue.

What baseband is your iPhone running? Go to setting, general, about iPhone and check. They can currently downgrade your baseband if need be if your iPhone has the right bootloader. There are tools to check this on cydis and if you search this site as well it has the information you need.

Basically as per Dev Teams advice DO NOT USE QUICKPWN PERIOD. it updates the baseband to 2.30.3 and there isn't anything that can unlock it to use another carrier (T-mobile which is the only other carrier to be used for the iphone) as far as jailbreaking you can use quickpwn but you totally cannot use yellowsnow using if its succesful. Dont make the same mistake I did if you have already your running into a heap of trouble to downgrade the baseband, and according to dev team and most other people who have downgraded the baseband if you MESS up the downgrade you can totally mess up the iphone if things are done out of order. In order to do it correctly u have to use the pwnagetool provided by dev team to make a custom build of the iphone software not the IPSW by apple because that Upgrades the baseband with 2.30.3 firmware which doesnt allow yellowsnow to run at all. IN short DONT USE QUICKPWN use PWNAGETOOL by dev team quickpwn was a sorry imitation and obviously wasnt looked into very much we were just all too eager.
