QuickPwn is an App for Mac OS X that is designed for quickly pwning an iPhone

If you are running the latest version of firmware (2.0.2) on iPhone or iPhone 3G and have a Mac and want to Jailbreak your device to get Cydia and version 4 on there, you are in luck. The iPhone dev team has a tool called QuickPwn for Mac OS X that is similar to its sister app PwnageTool 2.0.3, but is designed for quickly pwning a device, whereas PwnageTool is designed to custom build and tailor the ipsw production process.

This version of QuickPwn requires iPhone software version 2.0.2 so if you haven�t upgraded to that you can get it using iTunes and then use the QuickPwn tool. If you don�t have 2.0.2 firmware on your iPhone or iPod touch, this won�t work!

Update: If you have updated to iPhone software version 2.1, you can download the new version of QuickPwn for 2.1 for Windows. You can download the Bootloader files for iPhone Classic here.

Update: If you have firmware update 2.2 and want to jailbreak your iPhone, you can use the latest version of QuickPwn for 2.2 firmware update. Instructions for upgrading from a jailbroken firmware 2.1 to 2.1 are listed below.

   1. Connect your device and update to firmware 2.2 on iTunes 8.0.2 - your hacked .ipa will remain even when its updated, but all the installed packages from cydia/installer will be removed and will have to be reinstalled.
   2. Download QuickPwn 2.2 for Windows or MAC, and run it and it will ask you to locate the 2.2 ipsw (so make sure you have this downloaded)
   3. Follow the instruction and you have a jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch with 2.2
   4. After a reboot, open iTunes and allow it to sync. You can still use the Mobile patch 2.1

Use iPhone mods and hacks at your own risk! Installing 3rd Party iPhone apps requires you to jailbreak the iPhone before installing the native software and apps.

The iPhone DevTeam formally announces the availability of �QuickPwn�.

This tool is the proof of concept tool to demonstrate the �QuickPwning� of devices without the need for an iTunes based restore. This tool is best suited for users who do not need a custom firmware with specific custom features. For casual users the tool is more convenient as you do not need to make a full new IPSW and use iTunes with it, but the end result is that your device is Pwned and jailbroken.

The tool currently works with 2.0.1 firmware iPhones and iPods.

The tool can be downloaded here:-

QuickPwn and PwnageTool do not yet offer a software unlock for the 3G baseband.
