PwnageTool 5.1.1 has been released by the iPhone Dev Team. The tool helps you to create iOS 5.1.1 custom firmware and jailbreak it.
PwnageTool 5.1.1 is compatible only with older devices that includes iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad 1, iPod Touch 3G / 4G. You cannot use it with iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and the new iPad (iPad 3).
Remember if you have already jailbroken iOS 5.1.1 using Absinthe 2.0, you do not need to use PwnageTool, Redsn0w, Sn0wbreeze or cInject. All these tools comes with little advantages of their own. Other than that, they are all using the same exploit made by Pod2g. All you need to do is to select the tool that suits you.
This is what iPhone Dev Team has updated on their blog:
PwnageTool also avoids any possible sync issues, but again it applies only to A4+earlier devices. If you unlock your iPhone with ultrasn0w or a commercial method, you must use PwnageTool to avoid updating your baseband otherwise you’ll lose the unlock. PwnageTool will also jailbreak+untether the AppleTV2,1 5.0_2B206f (unless you customize the IPSW further, you’ll have just basic SSH access to the device).
If you have an older device and want to create custom firmware iOS 5.1.1 and jailbreak it and after that you want to use Ultrasn0w 1.2.7 to unlock your device, then PwnageTool 5.1.1 is certainly the right choice. Alternate method is to create custom firmware iOS 5.1.1 using Redsn0w and then jailbreak it.
PwnageTool is a Mac only tool. If you want to use a similar tool for Windows, Sn0wbreeze by iH8sn0w is the alternative.
