In other words, 3G owners will have to stick with their current Sim cards for the time being; the software currently can't help them use another mobile carrier.
The iphone-dev team has been busy eversince the announcement and released an updated version of the software. PwnageTool 2.0.1 was released 14 hours ago and addresses the following issues:
- It auto-finds the bl39 and bl46 files better, if they’re on your computer
- It creates the ~/Library/iTunes/Device Support/ folder if not present, which should help with some 1600 errors people have been having.
- Many people have reported the PwnageTool not starting up at all (the icon never stops bouncing). This issue should be resolved now.
- The Sparkle AppCast URL is fixed in this version, so automatic updates should work for future releases.
