iPhone 2.2 Firmware Jailbreak/Unlock

Last Friday, Apple updated the iPhone firmware to 2.2, fixing a bunch of security holes and adding a few more features such as direct podcast download, Google street view and more… As usual when a firmware update comes out, I recommended to jailbreakers to wait for the GO from the Dev Team to upgrade. At the time, I also forsaw that it would take just a few days to the Dev Team to come up with a jailbreak method.

Well, it took about 24 hours for our favorite iPhone hackers to release updated versions of QuickPwn and PwnageTool, making firmware 2.2 jailbreakable again.

So I wrote a few tutorials over at my iPhone blog on how to do this. If you have any interest in dowbgrading, jailbreaking, or unlocking your iPhone, check any of these links:

  1. I just downloaded the iPhone 2.2 firmware few days ago because I am quite interested in direct podcast download (I have lots of subscribed podcasts) but of course, I will definitely try the updated versions of QuickPwn and PwnageTool because the firmware is more exciting if its jailbreakable ;)

  2. Very interesting post. I’m looking at picking up an iPhone this week as it’s required for work and other various things that I need it for. One thing that I’m unsure about yet and have been researching is whether or not I can tether my computer and phone together to use the 3G internet on my computer. This is really the only thing holding me back as I need internet access on the fly sometimes.

  3. Greatness! I just purchased an iPhone myself and was wondering about jailbreaking it. Would you suggest it? I’m currently on the fence myself as I don’t want to mess anything up. Can a true noobie do it?

  4. @Franklin – you obviously can use a computer since you are writing this comment, so YES, even a caveman can do it!

  5. Sebastien,

    Thanks for motivating me to jailbreak my iphone, I did and I’m never looking back. Except under one condition which I’m still unsure about. Can I plug my iphone into my computer with itunes running or will Apple detect that I jailbroke my phone. What happens if I happen to really mess things up, will AT&T shun me for doing this?

  6. @Lisa – yes, you can plug your iPhone and sync with iTunes without any problem. The only thing is that you should never show that your iPhone is jailbroken to an Apple employee or else, it will void you warranty. If you ever have a problem with your iPhone and need to return it, simply restore your iPhone in iTunes prior to taking it to Apple.

  7. I also have the iPhone 2.2 firmware and I’m loving their Google street view feature. I’m also interested in jailbreaking my iPhone so I checked out the links you mentioned. Thanks.

  8. Hey thanks alot Sebastien, you motivated me to jailbreak it and boy am I glad I did! I finally got everything copesetic and online! Jailbreaking is a must do, it’s so so so eay.
