    In my experience, PwnageTool has always been the more stable and well-tested option. But it requires doing a restore/resync of all your apps/data. Greenpois0n, Limera1n, etc generally let you run over your existing installation.

    If you need an unlock then pwnage tool is your option because it upgrades the firmware but not the baseband. If you don't care about an unlock then either tool will do the job. I personally prefer pwnage tool, but I used Greenpois0n and it was fine. So really the choice is yours.
