  • 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:

      what does "No Wipe" do?

      if you dont remove winpwn 1.0 before installing 2.0 you need to
      1. uninstall winpwn 2.0
      2. delete folder CDocuments and Settings\"User Name"\Application Data\cmw\winpwn
      (note you have to unhide hidden folders)
      3. reinstall winpwn 2.0


      edit: to the post above me wipe clears all data from your iphone remember the whole people selling iphones and getting there info rip'd from it even though they restored it!

      Great job guys!

      Just one question, I curently have firmware 1.1.2, do I have to first upload 1.1.4?

      Or can I go straight to the 2.0 firmware?

      Thanks in advance!

      I have the same question regarding 1.1.3 firmware. I jailbroke my phone 1.1.2 => 1.1.3 using the Installer.app method.

      Am I going to need to update to 1.1.4 or can I proceed from 1.1.3, because so far I'm having no luck.

      When we make custom iPSW, do we check the "neuter bootloader 3.9/4.6"??

      Or can we leave that unchecked, and even without it, it'll unlock the phone?

      Is installer supported for the iPhone 3g or just Cydia?
    1. yomino's Avatar
      yomino -
      Yeah, first you browse for the iPSW that you should've downloaded. After that loads, you click "iPSW builder".

      But I'm confused in iPSW builder, what exactly do we check if we want the phone unlocked (do we check the "enable baseband update" or the "neuter bootloader3.9/4.6"?

      If we DO install neuter bootloader, it asks for the 3.9/4.6 bootloader files, which I have no idea where to get from...

      Anyone please help?

      They should put some real instructions on their website before releasing something.
