In past, we have seen many fake attempts like thunderst0rm, limera1n to jailbreak/unlock iDevices, but this time we've something new! A new guy (@4n0nym0u5DEV) who claims to be an iPhone hacker has released a modified version of PwnageTool - PwnageTool 4.0 which can jailbreak iPhone 3GS 4.0 OS without upgrading its firmware. Users who have tried PwnageTool 4.0/3.1.6 are reporting issues like it doesn't work, phone halting etc.
Please note that PwnageTool is an official tool from Dev-Team, and the hacker didn't take Dev-Team's approval for PwnageTool modification; so we strongly recommend to stay AWAY from this tool as users who have tried it are encountering serious problems with their devices.
Last official PwanageTool form Dev-Team was PwnageTool 3.1.5 and it was for jailbreaking iPhone OS 3.1.3. As to iPhone OS 4.0, Dev-Team has released Redsn0w 0.9.5b4 to jailbreak iPhone 3G(ONLY) on OS 4.0 Beta-4, and it's for MAC users only. No other tool has arrived yet to jailbreak iPhone 3GS on OS 4.0. GeoHot, however has also claimed to jailbreak OS 4.0 with blackra1n tool, but the tool hasn't arrived yet.
Please be patient and always trust and use recommended jailbreaking/unlocking tools avoid any issue with your iDevices, for this very reason we aren't giving the download link of PwnageTool 4.0. We will keep you posted regarding OS 4.0, stay tuned!
