Hi all,

iPhone news of the day, PwnageTool 2.0 is out. See http://blog.iphone-dev.org/ for download links.

I've just unlocked my 1st-Gen iPhone running v2.0 firmware (official release, build 347) to run on Vodafone NZ. Previously this had only been possible with firmware 1.1.4 and a few of the early 2.0 betas.

FYI: PwnageTool 2.0 also activates and jailbreaks iPhone 3G, so that you can install custom software on it BUT there is presently no iPhone 3G unlock. This is likely to take a few weeks since the baseband chip in the iPhone 3G is new. Not that you really need an unlock on the iPhone 3G in NZ at the moment.

Download it and happy upgrading and unlocking!

I have done likewise.

How do you find your phone now?  Mine seems a bit more sluggish - slower to load apps such as the contact list?

Cheers

Mine actually seems faster for a change!

I am however having some dramas with Mail.app, it crashes upon loading every time I try to open it. Apparently I've got to either install a fix from Installer/Cydia or just SSH in and do some CHMOD'ing which supposedly does the trick.
