iPhone unlock team strikes again

SDK for unofficial code

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

A hotly anticipated development kit for hacking your iPhone and bypassing Apple's official application store has been released.

The PwnageTool is a Mac OS-X-based SDK from the iPhone Dev Team that lets you add "unsigned code" to the iPhone and iPod Touch. This means you don't have to wait for Apple's approval on what you can run or have to download approved applications from the App Store. A version for Windows is expected in the next 24 hours.

The SDK will be useful to anyone who wants to make software for the iPhone. Those who snapped up Apple's official iPhone SDK and registered for the iPhone developer program have been left in the dark over whether can build applications with Apple's imprimatur.

The urge to bypass official channels is strong. The iPhone Dev Team, which last year developed the iPhone unlock tool, says hundreds of thousands of users had unlocked their phone.

Hacks built with PwnageTool cannot be broken by subsequent Apple updates, the team claims.
