  • 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:

      Ok guys... I successfully unlocked the phone (with an AT&T sim card) and gave the phone to a friend with T-mobile. I put in the wap.voicestream.com settings and YouTube worked fine. After an hour or so it stopped, as did Cydia. Safari still works though. Any idea what could be wrong?

      I have a funny problem here....hope someone can help
      P.S I am a newbie and not really tech savvy.I have gone through most of the posts looking for a similar problem but may have overlooked it.

      I run Win XP.I downloaded 2.0 and winpwn 2.0.0.3 When i use the ipsw builder,if i have the install cydia option checked i cannot build a custom ipsw file.If i uncheck the cydia option the i can go ahead.What do i do ?

      Thanks

      This is something of interest to me as well. Im on Tmo I have always used:
      wap.voicestream.com
      User Name: Guest
      Password: Guest

      One the 8 phones I pwned couldnt connect to these apps. to no avail. my friend who's phone it was, called TMobile (without my knowledge first) and they told him to use the "internet2" source. www.internet2.com UserName: (empty) Password: (empty) By the way they always tell you to use this when you call and I have never been able to get it to work. Now his seems to be working just fine using this.
      Another interesting thing happened, the YouTube Error happened on my wife's phone. We just repwned her's using 2.0.0.3 again and it works just fine.
      All of these phones mentioned are 1st gen. 2.0 not 3G

      By they way Ive been out of town for a few days just got back, if anyone needs any help hit me up.

      I recommend using the firmware the dev team provides. Also the thread topic has a link to winpwn 2.0 step by step. Included are all files neccessary to pwn your phone.. you can get it here--->
      winpwn guide 2.0 and Use this link to Obtain winpwn 2.5 for 2.0 only!! Not 2.0.1 --->Winpwn 2.5

      Now I am not aware that you are able to download firmware 2.0 anymore through itunes considering 2.0.1 is out so be careful and use the files provided in the guide above...

      Also do not attempt to pwn 2.0.1 with winpwn 2.0.0.1 - 2.0.0.5 It will not work and I'd hate to imagine the results. These versions are strictly for 2.0 only. A new pwnage just released for Mac only today and is not available for Windows.

      Here is the problem
      when i click "Jailbreak" alone the iPhone makes all the features active that iPod has, works for all options but only not for SIM, there is no mobile network, no-wifi, no BT, no IMEI.

      So i tryed to restore it with iTunes 7.7 (last) and 7.5 (in DFUmode) but none firmware want work. Everytime displays another error (1604, 20, 1603, 6,etc..)

      when i use 1.1.4 it works but only the ipod func. so i try refursbish with ziphone 2.5 and stuck at CFI Stage 1

      i mean i tryed everything with no success.

      If there someone who can try to get it work i would give him a remote access to my pc..

      Could probably help you right here, for more information for users. Now what OS are you using? Which version of winpwn are you using? What phone do you have, and what service provider do you have? and btw Jailbreak does not activate SIM, that is known as unlocking. More info can help you greatly. Those error 6 messages arent bad either. close itunes and winpwn, open them again, Without restarting the phone and pwn itunes. continue steps. What options do you have checked? get a screen shot of what you select. If the phone jailbreaks, then you are doing it correctly. Also you should restore it to a factory 2.0 then proceed to pwn.

      You cannot pwn 2.0 with itunes 7.5. and oh man forget it... Just go through and use search on this site. This has been covered over and over. You seem to have created a pretzel of registry entries and installation files on your computer. Clean it all out every bit.... every driver etc etc and start over completely.

      It's a first generation iPhone 8GB.
      I am using xp amd machine, winpwn doest help at all...
      It's not a problem to follow the guide and make a custom firmware, the problem is i cant restore it.. tryed all.

      this phone was jailbreak/unlock/activate before (4 months) with Ziphone and worked good.but i download once 1.1.4 with iTunes and make then and now having all kind of heart attack,..

      msb2008:

      No you shouldnt find it nor use it. Every file you need will be available from them, as also specifically stated atop the new thread regarding pwning 2.0.1
      The dev team also warns on their blog that you should not upgrade to firmware 2.0.1 via iTunes. Wait until PwnageTool 2.0.2 is released and upgrade to 2.0.1 with a custom ispw. Upgrading directly via iTunes will lessen the chances of you being able to unlock in the future.


      So dont bother with keeping it until they provide the file or tell you how to obtain it. Dont get FW 2.0 confused with the one you just downloaded 2.0.1 and really this is the wrong topic to be discussing this.

      Ok first do you have microsoft .net framework 2.0 installed? Do you have itunes 7.7 (not 7.7.1) installed? Are you using winpwn 2.0.0.3 or later? When in DFU (black screen) does itunes register your phone when you reopen it? What carrier are you running? again what do you have checked? screenshot helpful. You arent trying to pwn your phone to 1.1.4 are you?

      Ok what carrier are you using? what do you have checked when creating? does you phone show the apple or pineapple then the pinwheel? or does it ever make it out of DFU to restore?

      no..the pinapple shows when i try 1.1.4, but this firmware doesnt work now, yesterday worked only 1.1.4 but not any more error 1011.

      pineapple doesnt shows, but i tryed to restore 2.0 the phone disconnect/connect and shows the one apple and working.....and then in the middle comes pineapple..at the near end the phone jumps out and iTunes gimes me the error before the action "Restoring firmaware"

      no..the pinapple shows when i try 1.1.4, but this firmware doesnt work now, yesterday worked only 1.1.4 but not any more error 1011.

      I used winpwn on my 8gb and everything went perfectly, then I used the same customipsw on my 4gb and everything went perfect.....EXCEPT when I go to connect to wifi, it is greyed out and wont let me click on or connect. I have searched everywhere to try and get a fix. I have went back to 1.1.4,1.13, restored to 2.0 and nothing has worked. Does anyone have a fix or a link to a payload.

      Any info would be much appreciated
