    I'm thinking of jailbreaking my iPhone again. I usually use QuickPwn because it's fast, but is there a difference between using PwnageTool and QuickPwn?

    I ask because I'm wondering why there's even still a PwnageTool if QuickPwn does the same thing. Is PwnageTool cleaner or do some people just prefer restoring rather than QuickPwning?

    I use Pwnage Tool on my Mac, simply because you can customize what you want and don't want. I chose to jailbreak and have Cydia, but I chose not to have it include Installer, simply because I hate the lopsided icon!

    But, I can just delete installer.app right after I QuickPwn (which is what I usually do).

    In QuickPwn, just don't install Installer. Why install it only to delete it later? :confused:

    Pwnage is 'cleaner'. While it probably doesnt make a difference, quickpwn moves around a lot of files and makes symlinks that do not exist on a pwnage install.
