iPhone 2.0 Pwnage Works On A 2.5G (1st Gen) iPhone

by Jon Davis 30. July 2008 18:20
I finally upgraded my first-gen iPhone to the v2 software and ran the Pwnage Tool against it. Seems to work "fine", I have T-Mobile phone and 2.5G Internet working as well as Cydia and a few apps. Most of the v1 software apps are gone and unavailable, though, unfortunately. Apple is smart, they discourage the use of unauthorized third party software installations by deploying their own marketplace bits right on the device. It's not unlike the Xbox 360 Live Marketplace in that sense. I apparently overestimated how many developers would bother to curttail the official deployment route (App Store) for the "hacker's" route (Cydia) instead. My iPhone is not 100% stable, I don't think, as after everything was installed the screen keyboard responded very slowly until I did a hard reboot. But then, my iPhone, being jailbroken since I got it, has never been 100% stable in this regard. Such is the price of ensuring I can fully enjoy what's rightfully mine.

About the author

Jon Davis (aka "stimpy77") has been a programmer, developer, and consultant for web and Windows software solutions professionally since 1997, with experience ranging from OS and hardware support to DHTML programming to IIS/ASP web apps to Java network programming to Visual Basic applications to C# desktop apps.
Software in all forms is also his sole hobby, whether playing PC games or tinkering with programming them. "I was playing Defender on the Commodore 64," he reminisces, "when I decided at the age of 12 or so that I want to be a computer programmer when I grow up."

Jon was previously employed as a senior .NET developer at a very well-known Internet services company whom you're more likely than not to have directly done business with. However, this blog and all of jondavis.net have no affiliation with, and are not representative of, his former employer in any way.
