  • 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
    Here.

    - 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.


    Done!
    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
    cmw
    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 2.0.0.3 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.

      Do I have to update my iphone( 1.1.4 unlocked/jailbroken with iliberty+, 3.9fb bl) to 2.0 firmware through itunes before I start the whole process of pwning it with winpwn??

      Also if I update does that mean my iphone gets locked??

      Just want to make sure...

      Hello all Im a little confused, If you can jailbreak the 3G phone can you use it with tmobile? or does it have to be unlock?

      No you can't get the 3G iphone to run on T-mobile! Ever at this point....If you have T-mo, you should sell your phone and get a 2.0...Or your going to have a very nice ipod touch.

      Anyone try windows 2000 PRO?

      As far as i can tell right now, the only way to get it going easy is to have an XP Pro computer....I'm am currently installing XP-pro on another machine..

      Anyone around the Western Mass area, feel free to PM me, or mail me. I know whats going on, and WP is going to have to make a fix for it, or most people will have to do it on XP rather then Vista...The people that are getting it to run on vista are lucky! I am not so lucky! and i'm not going to waist time trying this any more through any thing other then XP.

      Any questions? Unless someone has a fix to the vista crap..
      Again i tried it all....Run as XP, stop itunes helper, bla bla bla

      for everyone whos using vista make sure you run winpwn 2.0.0.2 as administrator

      aka. right click > run as administrator.

      winpwn will let u create custom ipsw and pwn itunes, pwning itunes might fail the first time so try it again and voila!

      than shiftclick restore and watch your iphone get pwned ^^

      enjoy

      Yes in theory my friend. I was able to successfully restore 2 of 3 phones yesterday eventually, running on Vista Home Premium. I did click run as admin on winpwn. Both of these phones however were pwned with 2.0.0.2 on 1.1.4 then pwned 2.0 on them.. I still to this day have not been able to successfuly pwn a 1st gen. 2.0 to a pwned 2.0. If anyone has any thoughts on this It would really help.

      Update: My phone is still working fine on pwned 2.0 but the other now shows edge, bars and tmobile and is pwned 2.0 but cannot make calls. Now we cant pwn 2.0 all over again on it. Ive tried on Vista, same (1601...) and itunes crashes when pwning itunes. Then tried on XP Media/Pro .net 2.0 framework itunes 7.7 etc etc. still (1601, 1602....) any thoughts guys? Ive also now tried at work on XP machines that never had winpwn, itunes or anything of that nature and still the same ( error 1601) Ive been updating my progress starting on page 34 I think if you all need to try troubleshoot for yourselves through my experiences...
      I have Tmobile and when building the custom files, Ive seen 5 different set ups what to click what not to click.. etc etc. Please help.

      I have 2000 Pro on one pc here at work.. I wonder.

      Oh and Cydia runs so much faster on edge then Installer ever dreamed of. I think Im noticing Edge Run faster period.. Interesting enough about the "3G" network, I think a big part of its speed is the applications and 2.0 firmware as much as it is more bandwidth....

      FYI for "White Screen" victims searching the thread, if you get a white screen after trying to restore through DFU and get 160x, restart iTunes and run restore again while in white, it should give in and restore, give lots of patience and more than one try! worked the second time after a 1604(also swapped usb ports)

      Hope it helps someone, woulda saved me tons of time.

      that's cool, i use vista ultimate on my PC, i did it with 2.0.0.2 straight from un-unlocked/unjailbroken 2.0 to pwned 2.0 and it worked fine, make sure you delete the cmw directory from the documents or wherever its hidden when u update from 2.0.0.0 or 2.0.0.1 to 2.0.0.2

      OK who is a T-mobile user? That has done this upgrade, and is running 2.0, and able to make phone calls...

      And every thing works....What did you select? And again i am talking about a 2G phone, not a 3 G phone cause they WONT WORK ON 3G and T-mo

      Please help me out...Who is working on T-mo, and what did you select?

      I am building a new install of WinXp pro, as well Itunes, and the Winp program. I want to make sure i get this right...

      Too many people are trying to give help, and not pointing at who they are talking to..

      Thanks for the update!

      Ok well I also noticed something else of interest. When i was installing itunes 7.7 on a pc here at at work I noticed it installed "Bonjour" Now upon upgrading from 7.5 to 7.7 it never removed it. So if you are one of those folks who have upgraded 7.5 to 7 you might wanna see if that removed upon uninstall.

      Ok the one phone i couldnt get to work just finished!!!!!!!! 2.0 to pwned 2.0 first try!!!!! on new xp machine, new tunes, new software file etc etc etc....

      New version of WinPwn released!

      If you are currently still having problems, give 2.0.0.3 a try!

      2.0.0.3 fixes the Ipwner crash problem and 16xx errors. It will also fix the iPod ipswBuilder failure bug.
