What are the major differences? Any ideas on which one would be better overall?
That depends on what you are trying to do, what version of the iPhone you have, and what computer and OS you are running. Tell us more.
But also read the very first sticky in this forum and your questions should be answered there
iPhone 3G, Windows Vista. And I have read that, yet it doesn't really identify the pros and cons of either.
Don't even think about QuickPwn or Pwnage Tool. They are Mac only (right??).
WinPwn no longer works and the developer refuses to work on it to bring it even close to being up to date, so it's pretty much out of the picture.
Lazy developers. Tsk tsk.
But PwnageTool is for Macs and it creates a custom firmware for your device that can be jailbroken, unlocked, and stuff like that. You have to restore in iTunes to the custom firmware, so it erases all of your stuff.
QuickPwn is available for Macs and PC's and it simply jailbreaks a device. QuickPwn does not require a restore, so your information stays intact entirely.
I personally use QuickPwn most of the time, because I usually get errors when I attempt to restore using a custom firmware I made with PwnageTool. Saves me time and energy. It's a lot easier to use, also.
Alright I see, thanks for the responses. I'll update you when I get my iPhone and I jailbreak it.
Just to add, you can use QuickPwn on Windows for jailbreaking and unlocking. If you want.
Here's the tutorial:
