Unbelievable that it's already been three months since the release of PwnageTool 3.1.4 for Mac OS X. The latest installment in iPhone Dev-Team's jailbreaking arsenal makes it possible to execute a tethered jailbreak on the iPhone 3GS fresh out of the box. This hardware is running iPhone OS 3.1.2.
Windows users have been waiting for a an update, and now it may be on its way. MuscleNerd has announced via Twitter that the team is working on redsn0w 0.9, a fast jailbreak solution for Windows and other platforms. No word yet on when this new version of redsn0w will be released.
Tweets from MuscleNerd:

Another interesting tweet from the Dev-Team describes their year-end blog statistics. The team had 33,883,489 visits in 2009. No doubt that jailbreaking is popular as ever and will become even more so with the release of new tools.
