    Default Why do I need this?

    I'm on 3.9FB with 1.1.4
    It looks like even when the official 2.0 FW comes out, it will be only a matter of days until it will be unlocked and jailbroken.

    So is there any one reason why I should use the pwnage tool on my phone?

    If you have to restore you can go back to a already jailbroken activated and unlocked phone

    Fair enough, but I'll save all of the 5 minutes extra it would take to do a "normal" restore and one of the well known jailbreak/unlock methods.
    And considered that, unless something terrible happens, I actually won't need to restore... I guess I really don't need it? Eh? What? No?

    It's just that the kids all go "hell yeah!" and "whoop whoop" so I couldn't help wondering what all the hype is about.
    Yeah, sure, once we got Win XP running on our phones, then maybe lol

    Because the "official" Dev Team hasn't had a way to update to 1.1.4, and the official way to get to 1.1.3 requires an extremely long process (30-45 minutes).

    Though there are other tools out there to unlock your phone, released by the Dev Team are likely to be the most tested.

    The fact that we can now apply unsigned firmware images to the phone is a big deal in my opinion.

    The fact that you can restore using a "cooked" firmware is certainly big news.

    Who knows... maybe in the future different OS's

    Depends on you, you will be able to install any not signed firmware file you prefer, custom configured to your needs, and in the futre noone will have to digg ages for a new jailbreak, jsut get a custom, prejailbroken and activated ipsw and go.

    See, there is 2.0 now, ally ou need on a pwned phone is to build yourself a custom ipsw out of the original, install it and it will be unlocked/jailbroken/acivated and ready for usage.

    If you sill not see the advantage of it, well I don't know
