Feb 15, 2011 - 6 Comments


Popular jailbreak and unlock utility PwnageTool 4.2 has been released and includes the untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak in addition to resolving the iBooks DRM problem and some WiFi connectivity issues with the Apple TV 2.

PwnageTool 4.2 supports jailbreaking nearly all iOS devices including iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, Verizon iPhone 4, iPod touch 3g, iPod touch 4G, iPad, and Apple TV 2. The only device that PwnageTool will not work on is the iPod touch 2G.

PwnageTool 4.2 is particularly important to those who rely on an iPhone unlock, since PwnageTool allows users to preserve existing unlocked baseband while allowing users to upgrade their device to iOS 4.2.1.

    Does this work on JBroken phones whose BB has been updated to 6.15 ?? I had jailbroken the phone few days back and used iPad BB to jailbreak and unlock it.

      Jailbreaking allows you to install non-approved software and edit the filesystem to study programming more effectively and without paying developer fees to Apple.
