If you're an iPhone owner who wants the updates presented in the 2.1 firmware, and want to run jail-broken applications, the iPhone Dev Team today released PwnageTool and QuickPwn for 2.1 devices. According to the folks at the Unofficial Apple Weblog, this update does not work with iPod Touch 2g, and is "for iPhones or first generation Touch devices only." [TUAW]
To clarify: if my iPhone 3G is already running a jailbroken 2.0.1, what I do to update is either rerun the pwnage tool using the new 2.1 firmware or "update" my firmware to the legit 2.1 using iTunes and then run QuickPwn, right? And either way, I then have to reinstall my unofficial apps such as intelliscreen and videorecorder3g all over again when that is done?
