Jailbreak iOS 4.0.1 with PwnageTool Bundles [How to Guide]

PwnageTool bundle to jailbreak iOS 4.0.1 on iPhone 3GS has been released. You can use this bundle with existing version of PwnageTool to create custom firmware files which are jailbroken and hacktivated for iPhone 3GS. The best thing about this bundle is that it supports both the ultrasn0w unlock and hacktivation. But as always, this bundle is meant for iPhone 3GS with old bootrom only. Those of you who are with new bootrom will have to wait for Comex’s new Spirit like jailbreak tool which should be released real soon.

Once again, perform the instructions at your own risk only. I am not responsible if you end up bricking or locking your phone. Only proceed if you are an advanced user, and know what you are doing. Otherwise, wait for the new official tools which would be out soon. [Thanks Ƙaatje for the heads up! | via TGIL Inc.]
