[Updated: 21 July 2008]

The latest Pwnage Tool 2.0.1 went live yesterday.  It allows you to gain full read-write access, that is to jailbreak your iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch by modifying the firmware to accept third-party code.  But one thing it still cannot do is to unlock the iPhone 3G. However, as reported in a other tech sites, there’s still bugs for the iPhone 3G, so wait until the guys over at iPhone Dev Team can work them out.
