  • 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.

    iPhone 3g firmware:

I then started over again and am in the position I am in now.

      I can't restore to custom 1.1.4 or 2.0. I also can't restore to stock 1.1.4 or 2.0. Ziphone nor iLiberty will read my phone. I know it goes into DFU as it loads the driver for it in device manager. I've tried the restores in both DFU mode and normal restore mode, i've also tried downgrading to itunes 7.5 with no luck. I've also tried this on multiple machines varying from XP to Vista.

      Everytime I try to restore I get 1601, 1602, 1603, or 1604. The firmware extracts then the phone prepares to restore. Sometimes the screen turns white and then goes to the Apple logo, others it does not. Just about everytime after the error occurs the phone goes to the Apple logo with the circle at the bottom. I've done every single thing in thread. So before you say "zomg lock this thread, it's the end all to problems" you should make sure it works in every scenario. Until then people are going to continue to post in here until they find a solution that works.
      Not trying to be a ***** here, but downgrading is useless. Also if youd read even the most recent 10 pages youd see how to combat the 16xx errors. First and easiest way is when the itunes (7.7!!!) is preparing phone for restore you need to unplug the usb and then plug it back in, the 16xx errors are a result from your itunes not reading the phone.!!!!!! If i were you at this point, Id erase anything at all in your pc pertaining to itunes. This means using windows search...... next if youre on XP make sure you have microsoft .net framework 2.0. START FRESH ALL OVER! UNINSTALL EVERYTHING RELATED TO WINPWN, iTUNES, QUICKTIME , all remnants OF THESE PROGRAMS. EVERYTHING!!! shut down all programs in your startup, download itunes 7.7 , winpwn 2.0.0.3 download the bin files. Download a factory 2.0, and delete all old custom files. AGAIN EMPTY YOUR STARTUP!!!! then follow the winown guide 2.0 right atop of this thread!!! in the very beginning!!!! trust me if it doesnt work this is user error and maybe you should reconsider doing this at all.

      By The Way: the only process you should stop after pwning itunes and before pwning 2.0 is ituneshelper.exe . You need everything else (which are drivers) to run when restoring.

      If you havent already you need to install Open SSL in Cydia. Matter of fact you should update and install core utils all together. Then you should reboot your phone, if youre using EDGE (TMobile) go to network and set it up (wap.voicestream.com User: Guest Password:Guest) I had this problem with a couple phones until i remembered to make sure ssl was installed. One phone picked it up like 1/2 a day later. No answer for that, but it just did.. check your package sources in cydia, it should install big boss and many others. That you should get you started on installing apps through CYDIA

      Have you even read any previous posts at all? I mean seriously. ITS ALL IN THIS THREAD!!!!!

      Lately no one seems to be confiming they have microsoft .net framework 2.0 installed . This is also a very important part!!!!! It would seem to relate to some of the issues i see.

      Just wanted to mention that I am getting the same error at the same place with a 3g iphone on Win XP. Unknown error [6]

      When I looked at the itunes log it said:

      "unable to create ramdisk"
      "restore failed"

      The computer had 1.3 GB of available ram. Should be plenty to make a ramdisk.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks,

      Mornin' guys! I followed the instructions to the word and it worked fine. I have windows vista and used winpwn version 2.0.0.3 with the restore version iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw (instead of iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw). It pwnd itunes with no problems and jailbroke the phone intalling Cydia. I still miss Installer, as Cydia's apps do not include all the cool apps that installer has. Good look all, just wanted to share my experience :-D Good luck

      I've seen so many post asking what needs to be checked in winpwn 2.0.3 if they are at&t subscribers using the 3G phone.

      Obviously we should not check youtube fix and not check activate...but what about the other things(upgrade bootloader, downgrade, neuter, yada yada)..can someone please post what they have checked and unchecked for 3G iphone subscribers to at&t? Only the essential things to get 3G jailbroken is what I'm asking for. THANK YOU!

      I followed all instructions, and everything works....except youtube. I am an AT&T customer, and I unchecked Youtube fix when I tried to jalilbrea my 2.0 iphone (1st gen). I keep getting an error when I try to get into youtube with a message, "need to connect to itunes with internet...". Youtube fix is suppose to fix this problem before.

      Hey,

      Appreciate the help here.

      After i click the ipsw builder button and the application tab is showing i don't have the same choices as you. My app tab shows a whole lot of category selections on the right and on the left there is an available sources box, and under that is install applications box that is empty. Do i have to search the categories on the right for cydia and select and install it. There are 2 there: Cydia installer 1.0 and Cydia manual refresh. this is different from everyone elses i have seen and i am a little confused by it. Also in the categories columns on the right there tons of mini tabs---such as toys, wallpaper,unlocking tools, multimedia, games and many others. Do i have to install these now to use or what are they there for. So different from other posts i have read and now i am lost.

      Thanks for the help.

      Anyone know why winpwn (2.0.0.3RC1)is saying that the (iPhone1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw) is an unknown file when i try to load it. Iv been searching half an hour for the answer, to no avail!

      no no, 1st gen on 1.1.4 unlocked with ziphone.
      just uninstalling-reinstalling winpwn now and downloading fresh 2.0 f/w
      (read to try this on another forum)

      Just tried that, still getting "unknown file" when i try to load the .ipsw onto winpwn.
