So I have been using the pwnage tool to Jailbreak since 2.0. But with Quickpwn, it seems SO much faster.

Why would I use pwnage tool?

Is Quickpwn safe? I've had lots of call drops and Safari keeps crashing on me. Is this just a coincidence? I'm on 2.1.

If I'm not mistaken (and I may be, as I've never used it), Pwnage tool offers more flexibility and options when creating your custom ipsw file. You can put in custom logos, and also pre-install specified Cydia apps.

PwnageTool offers more advanced features, as mentioned above, including custom logos, pre-installed packages, and root partition resizing.

Quickpwn unlocks, too...
School time 4 me. So unlocking does not equal activating...right? And if correct, then if one used Quickpwn to unlock, they would still need use pwnage to activate? (I have AT&T, but would just like to know....) :p
