The iPhone Dev Team has announced in a new blog post that the latest version of PwnageTool 4.1 that will enable users to jailbreak iOS 4.1 devices is now available for download. The big addition to the family of jailbreakable devices is obviously the second generation Apple TV. The new PwnageTool is an untethered jailbreak which means there is no need for users to tether their device to a computer while rebooting them. Here is a complete list of devices supported with the latest tool

  • AppleTV 2G
  • iPad (firmware 3.2.2)
  • iPod touch 4G
  • iPod touch 3G
  • iPhone4
  • iPhone 3GS
  • iPhone 3G

The Dev team has a word of advice to those users who have also used Ultrasn0w to unlock their devices,

“The biggest mistake you can make (and it is a big one!) is lettings iTunes restore to the official IPSW — you’ll lose the unlock and won’t be able to go back!  You must use Option-Restore, not just the Restore button by itself.  Then navigate to your custom IPSW — not to the stock one!  If you accidentally started a restore to the official IPSW, unplug your iPhone immediately before the restore gets to the “Updating Firmware” step!”

While at it, do remember that jailbreaking is risky and could possibly brick your phone besides making you lose your warranty. So proceed at your own risk.
