They've done it again. The iPhone Dev-Team has announced a brand new version of PwnageTool for jailbreaking iPhone OS 3.0. The team is hard at work as usual, developing jailbreak and unlock software for all of Apple's latest mobile hardware and software.
The new PwnageTool will not work on the iPhone 3G S (or the new iPod Touch) as of this writing, however more software is on the way. So far, iPhone Dev-Team has only released the Mac OS X version of PwnageTool, although they promise that a Mac OS X and Windows version of QuickPwn is coming soon.
Also in the works is ultrasn0w, an updated version of the yellowsn0w unlocking tool to allow the iPhone to be used on any GSM mobile carrier network.
As usual, the Dev-Team has issued some very important warnings along with their software:1. GOLDEN RULE: If you are using a 3G iPhone with yellowsn0w and rely on yellowsn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should NOT use PwnageTool right now. UltraSn0w is not included with this release and therefore your baseband will be locked and unable to use an operator other than the official one it was bought for. UltraSn0w will be release via APT (cydia and icy) soon. If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.0 unlock works with this PwnageTool release.
2. Yellowsn0w in its current form will NOT work with the baseband version that is present in the 3.0 update, you will need Ultrasn0w, which will be released sometime soon, Ultrasn0w will work with all iPhone 3G models (but not 3GS), even ones that were previously unlockable, Ultrasn0w (when available) will be released via APT (this means you can get it via Cydia or Icy).

Again, PwnageTool will NOT work on the iPhone 3G S or the second generation iPod Touch. Not yet, anyway. Dev-Team states:
P.S. For the new iPhone 3GS, please don’t expect periodic updates about any progress we have or don’t have. Nothing gives Apple the upper hand like someone tweeting or blogging partial hack results. That’s not how cat & mouse is played :) That’s how the cat gets fed.
For those with itchy jailbreak fingers and an iPhone 3G S... your time will come. We have complete confidence that Dev-Team is a very persistent mouse.
