hackers have already released Pwnage 2.0.1. The software allows users of the new iPhone 3G, the original iPhone and the iPod Touch to “jailbreak” the devices and allow the unauthorized installation of third-party software applications not available at Apple’s App Store.
There’s one important distinction to be made between “jailbreaking” and “unlocking”.
While Pwnage 2.0.1 effectively “jailbreaks” the iPhone 3G, iPhone and iPod Touch to usher in third-party software applications not available at Apple’s App Store, the software doesn’t “unlock” the phones. Unlocking allows phones to be used on unauthorized cell phone networks.
