The new iPhone OS 2.0 software has been unlocked and jailbroken, according to Gizmodo blogger Jesus Diaz.

After taking months to crack the code on last summer’s inaugural release, the iPhone Dev Team has opened the gates to unsigned software on the iPhone 3G before its US debut. The Pwnage tool that will allow unofficial carriers access to the phone and give users full read/write access to the filesystem to enable installation of unofficial, “jailbreak” applications is “imminent,” according to CNet, though no firm release date has been announced.

    Lonnie: The Pwnage tool will unlock iPhone 2g 2.0 software, there isn’t any assurance as of yet that it will unlock iPhone 3G.

    Further, as T-Mobile lacks a 3G data network in the US, there’s really is no point in having a jailbroken iPhone 3G in the US right now.

    As I understand it, it’s less about the carrier this time around and more about having access to software through Installer.app?

    The screenshot shows AppStore and Installer.app residing side-by-side… I guess we’ll know more in time.

    T-Mobile had 3G before ANYONE else. It was leased out to the US Government. The Government contract has ended & 3G has been returned to T-Mobile for public use. Let it be known that T-Mobile’s 3G is even faster than all the other carriers.
