Hi Guys, Ive been all over this site and reading about PWNED vs ZiPhone. I want to try to PWN my phone but im also reading that people are still having some issues with their phones after Pwning it. I used the ZiPhone 3.0 method and so far there have been issues and i would have to JB again. But my Question is...What would you choose and why? Maybe on this thread we can filter out the answers that people might have questions to like myself. Should i Go and Pwn mine? is it safe? I also read that its not out on Windows yet...bummer...

I've had very good results with ZiPhone 2.5 in the past, and most recently just about flawless result with Pwnage Tool. I now prefer Pwnage, as I like the idea of being able to restore via iTunes very much.

There is a Windows version now - WinPwn, though I believe it is more limited in functionality than the Mac version. Have not used it though, so perhaps it has improved since its first release a few weeks back.

I have been extremely happy with Pwnage. Extremely easy to use, and fully integrated with iTunes. Pwnage offers a safe alternative to jailbreaking. I've restored and re-pwnaged many times. I recommend it in a heartbeat.

ZiPhone 3.0

ZiPhone 3.0 is very easy. One button jailbreak. Select the "Jailbreak" button not "Jailbreak & Activate". YouTube didn't work with "Jailbreak & Activate". I Jailbroke and restored about 4 times before I found out the "Jailbreak" button was the way to go.
