Problems solved?

The iPhone Dev Team has posted PwnageTool 2.0.3.1, a revised version of the iPhone hacking utility released yesterday then quickly removed.

The earlier release had mis-set file-access permissions, preventing upgraded iPod Touch - the code works with the music player as well as Apple's phone - from retaining Wi-Fi passwords and the like.

PwnageTool 2.0.3 was released this week to allow owners of these devices to upgrade to Apple's latest firmware, iPhone 2.0.2. The utility opens - aka 'jailbreaks' - the Touch and all versions of the iPhone to third-party apps released outside Apple's iTunes Application Store. It'll also unlock the original iPhone, but not the iPhone 3G.

The new code is available from the Team's website and through the auto-update mechanism integrated into earlier versions of the app.
