    It's pretty simple...

    Basically, the difference between pwning and jailbreaking (like ZiPhone or iLiberty) is that if you use Pwnage or WinPwn (note the *pwn*), it creates a new firmware (the O.S. of your iPhone). The new firmware it creates is jailbroken, unlocked, and activated. It's also nice because if you need to restore you iPhone for some reason, you can use the custom firmware so that it will be jailbroken right after you restore it. ZiPhone and iLiberty really just edit the code. I think that's what it does, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'm sure that it's much more complex, but that's the gist of it. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask.
