  • 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.

      Just my two cents. But in 1 day of having a jailbroken 3G iPhone, I'm really starting to regret it. I never had a problem with this phone, and now that I've jailbroken it, I get a random crash (usually when install any app). And I will be restoring to Apple firmware tomorrow. It's great that they have released this product though, but even they know that there is work to be done to perfect it.

      Believe me when I tell you, it's worth waiting about a month or so until bugs are worked out.

      Hi i kept getting the same error. I figured out that there is a step missing in the guide. You know that picture that says itunes has been pwned. After creating the custom firmware you need to click pwned and then select the firmware that you created. THen from there it will says itunes pwaned. Once that's done it's smooth sailing If you have question email me at [email protected]

      If i pwn my phone will I lose my stuff? Will I have to sync everything up again? If thats the case I will just wait until installer is available.

      so for the 3g, all i check off in advanced is:

      -activate phone
      -enable baseband update
      -neuter bootloader

      and do not select "youtube fix"

      Is this all i need?

      HELP GUYS!!!
      Bought my phone outside US. Dint know it was AT&T package, So i check the Youtube FIX.
      Now my phone is LOCK, unable to read the GSM phone carrier.
      I restore 2.0 again thinking this time to uncheck YOUTUBE FIX and ACTIVATE PHONE
      BUT got stuck in DFU mode; stuck in Itunes 'preparing for iphone to restore' and eventually the 1604 Error!

      Pls help guys... tried searching the web but never once people did it like me...
      any idea?

      Ok guys the 1600- 1604 errors are that your phone wasnt picked back up by itunes after it prepared to restore. ( the pinwheel and apple logo) when it goes to this mode try unplugging the USB and plug right back in either a different port or the same port. itunes should read it at this point and begin to restore.

      Also iPhone 3G users need to uncheck "Activate". I believe you dont use any advanced options. Just Cydia. You cannot use 3G on T Mobile yet so you must have an active at&T account, which obviously activate is not neccessary.

      Oh, and while we're at it...I managed to get previous wallpapers and ringtones through an iphone browser program.

      I said and did this some 20 pages of posts ago. Even got my custom sounds, signal bars AND ATT logo mod back. No one listens, follows instructions, just looking for drama. Enough said.

      hey guys,

      i got an ipod touch.
      i think i stuffed this up a bit.
      i downloaded the winpwn running with vista and did all the steps i was supposed to do.
      all of the pwnage script came up fine but the only thing that didnt happen was that my ipod did not re-boot and now is dead?!
      what the ?!
      i manually try to start it and it does nothing!!

      WHAT CAN I DO??

      Hi Go to this link follow everything that said on this link iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your 2.0 2G iPhone (Windows)

      Now when you get to the part after creating the custom firmware click on ipawner on the pawn program. The one right under Help. It going to ask you to locate the CUSTOM firmware you created. Once you locate that it should say itunes pawned. From there follow guide. I hope this helps.
