  • 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.

      ok! Guys plz help me out
      I had upgraded to 2.0 using the bootneuter steps and then the bootneuter would start by itself after I restored it so it would kind of jailbreak for me... But then idk how I screwed up and went back to 1.1.4 and then I tried going back using the same exact steps but it doesn't neuter my iPhone by itself after I restore it to 2.0... It just says connect to iTunes so I had to put the 1.1.4 or else it won't work... I really need easy and guaranteed steps to go back to 2.0 plz tell me how if u can!

      you need to turn off iTunes helper in your msconfig. If your using windows xp! If you have no problems making the software, you should be good! But I do know some people are having a hard time making the right firmware for their phone.
      If you need a copy, pm me. You'll still have to dfu your phone, but it's one or two less steps for you to follow!

      Dfu mode can be tricky! Do it slowly! Hold both buttons, for ten seconds, then release power button only hold home! With in ten-fifteen seconds it will be in dfu mode. As well your phone should be pluged in while doing this!

      If anyone has a question, pm me or mail me [email protected].
      Anyone who is around western mass, feel free to drop by!
      All mmi users get the first upgrade free! Just bring your user name to mmi with you! Must have over ten post of trials! And nice as well! LOL

      Honestly! I'm hear to help! And have great reviews from many locals around the area! I have not seen one phone yet I can jail brake, or unlock! (3G not included in unlocking, but working on it! My test phone was destroyed by my friends dog! So I'm looking for another tester!)
      Any things else, we are good!

      Good luck to all, take your time! Ask questions! Pm works great! Personal message!

      The best thing to do if you want to jailbreak on a more recent firmware that winpwn 2.0 does not support is:

      1 - Upgrade to the latest firmware
      2 - Use QuickPWN to jailbreak
      3 - Use LogoMe to change your boot logos
      4 - Use Yellowsn0w to unlock
