    It's really your choice - if you want to create custom firmware (which matters more with the iPhone as creating firmware means you have to pick a BootNeuter file as well), then PwnageTool is the only way to go. If you only care about jailbreaking and the unlocking doesn't matter, or if you have an iPhone 3G which is currently unlockable, then either one will do the job but QuickPWN will not require you to restore the firmware (which means you don't have to resync all your data).

    It's up to you, but QuickPWN is the faster of the two as you don't have to spend time creating firmware and then flashing it... and THEN resyncing all your stuff onto the iPod.

    i like quickpwn better but neither is technically better

    pwnage tool = making custom firmware and restoring in itunes

    quickpwn = restoring to offical firmware then jailbreaking (i think its also a little quicker)

    quickpwn is DEFIANTLY better if you dont want to lose your stuff and your already on 2.0
