    Hey Guys, I downloaded Quickpwn about a week ago from the official dev team site (blog.iphone-dev.org) to jailbreak my ipod touch, all worked fine.

    Today AVG pops up telling me QuickPwn has a trojan virus in it.. what the hell

    There are some anti-virus programs that misinterpret executable files, bottom line, QuickPwn is totally safe.

    Yeah, I would just ignore that. Antivirus programs tend to be oversensitive rather than undersensitive, and that leads to some false-positives.
