  • WinPwn 2.0 Released

    cmw has released WinPwn 2.0 - you can now jailbreak your 2.0 iPhone/iPod Touch/iPhone 3G in Windows easily.

    The WinPwn site is up and down with the intense traffic, but here's the post, in case you can't get it to load...

    WinPwn 2.0

    - Support for both 1.1.4 and 2.0

    - Custom Image Support

    - Custom Payload Support

    - 3g iPhone support

    2.0 How to:

    - 1) First create a custom IPSW using the IPSW Builder.

    - 2) Click "Ipwner" and browse for the custom IPSW that you just created. This will pwn itunes and allow you to flash
    Custom IPSW files via DFU mode

    - 3) Once you have pwned Itunes, put your phone into DFU mode. If you don't know how to do this click

    - 4) Once you are in DFU mode Itunes will pop up and then you can hold shift and click restore and browse to your custom IPSW file.

    Important Notes
    Remove Winpwn 1.0 completely if you have it installed. Installing over the top of WinPwn 1.0 will cause problems.
    Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes ( Currently 7.7)
    If you already have service with AT&T do not activate or install Youtube Fix

    Thanks again for all those who supported me. WinPwn was made possible by PlanetBeing, Squpix and the dev team ( Especially Wizdaz, MuscleNerd, Gray, Pumpkin, bgm, roxfan ). I will be updating WinPwn with some better features and upgrading the credits and help sections over the next few days.

    Much love
    Here's a ModMyI.com mirror for ya of the file (here's a non-member one), or you can grab it from RapidShare.

    Thanks to the dozens that sent this in.

    Also, cmw says there seems to be issue with Cydia on some XP machines, and he will be releasing a fix tomorrow.

    Edit Poseidon: Here is a nice guide written by theiphoneproject. I'm sure we'll have one up soon...

    WinPwn 2.0 Guide

    The new release is out which should fix the Cydia/XP bug along with some others listed

    Here's some more useful info on firmware files:

    there is one firmware for the 3g (which winpwn recognizes and doesnt allow unlock) and there is one for the 1st gen which winpwn will recognize and allow unlock. you should put this in the post so people can download the correct firmware.

    here is link to both.

      Thank you! After six hours of fighting - this did the trick.the trick is to uninstall 7.7 but not Apple Mobile Device Support - and then install 7.5 (does not require reboot) and then use winpwn - everything went smoothly from there
      now all I need is cydia (had to uncheck it coz of issues while building my ipsw)

      If everyone is so anxious for 2.0, and you see 13 pages of failure, then go here - http://www.modmyi.com/forums/pwnage/...eshooting.html

      This is the method I used. I have Cydia working, 2.0 unlocked.Jailbroken/T-Zones $5.99 fix from Cydia. IF you decide to restore your contacts/everything from backup, use the fix for mail in page 11 of that thread. EASY, and it WORKS.

      1. Yes (but no unlock)
      2. No

      This seems to be a good tool (made custom firmware), and for all of those getting errors, reinstall iTunes (7.5 as said before, or 7.7 if wanted) and check you are using the custom firmware .ispw and not the restore .ispw that you downloaded before.

      Well without Cydia there's not too much point in going through with it since you'll just have to restore again once this bug gets worked out.

      Hey guys i think i'm gonna wait a little more. Reading threw this thread and seeing what going on, I have a 1.1.4 phone that i unlocked with iLiberty and Installer.app done right by me so when they make installer.app for the 2.0 and add great app like video recorder,pool,mxtube,isisk,orblive,TTR,iSteamy.
      etc.. Some of these app i pay for and some were free to upload. I enjoy my phone now and to lose these just for a Firmware 2.0 i'll wait a bit more. For sure those great developer would make those app i listed work for 2.0...

      Hey quick question would winpwn 2.0 work for after i use iLiberty+

      2 questions....... should I enable baseband update? and is there a difference between bootloaders? I have first gen 3.9 boot loader right now so does it matter?
      Thanks in advance.

      Alright, I'm going to quote a post I made at the ipod touch fans forum.

      Now, I know you guys are all fed up with noobs posting threads about their bricked iPods/iPhones. And yes, I do realize this thread is almost 3 months old, but I have a small problem here...

      I tried to jailbreak my iPod with 2.0 firmware using winpwn 2.0. I followed all steps carefully, and got to the point where I'm supposed to use pwned iTunes to restore to the jailbroken firmware.
      This is where it got complicated - I kept getting errors like 1600, 1601 and 1604, despite everything I tried to do to fix it.
      So, I heard one guy talking about working around this by uninstalling iTunes 7.7 and installing 7.5, and using it to restore. Worth giving it a shot, I thought.
      The 160x error kept on haunting me, so I figured that I might have to restore to 1.1.4, pwn it, and THEN try restoring to a jailbroken 2.0 firmware.

      After installing 1.1.4, I opened winpwn 2.0, selected the 1.1.4 firmware file, and clicked iPwner button.
      The funny thing is, winpwn recognized my iPod as an iPhone (judging from the diagnostics it displayed), and began pwning it... Ten seconds passed, and my iPod went black. I thought that it's just restarting, so I let it sit there for ~40 minutes.

      So, I check back after 40 minutes. It's still black - My PC doesn't see it through USB, the backside of it is hot, and it doesn't respond to anything I try to do - I try the home-sleep button method. Nothing. I disconnect it holding the home button, then reconnect it still holding the home button - nothing.

      Nothing I throw at it works. It's completely dead D:

      Is there a way to unbrick it, or will I have to send it over to Apple for repairs?
      Any help? Pwees! :3

      Once you're going to sync your phone with iTunes it will put all your data/contacts back on your phone because you still have it stored on your PC. The only time you will lose it is when you're going to restore your PC and you don't save your files.

      Have fun!

      PS1:Thank you to the Dev team for this release and all the hard work!!
      PS2:For all the people that got this to work, without Cydia!!, tell me what was the point?!
      PS3 I have the 1st gen phone and I've tried everything posible in the past 10 hrs! I got all the errors posible We all need to wait for the Dev team to release a bug free vers!!! OR not!

      Remember not restore mode but DFU mode they are different apparently.
