  • 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:

      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?

      Well, I'm giving up for the night. I've built my ipsw image, pwned iTunes, put the iPhone in DFU mode and got error 1600, 1601, and 1604. I've uninstalled/installed iTunes, changed USB ports, popped out my SIM card and nothing is working.

      I'm glad I kept the jailbreak112 java app with 'boot from recovery' option so I can go back to using my phone until I can get this working. =/

      Or can we leave that unchecked, and even without it, it'll unlock the phone?
      Here what I checked ( Everything )

      I'm pretty sure those images were tied to winpwn.com, which has been pwned by the bandwith nargles.

      That part of WinPwn was working for me before winpwn.com went down. I assume that the images will start working once all this 2.0 craziness settles down.

      Hey thanks for your reply about the images not loading I will give it some time to see if it settles down. About the error 1600 1604 1601 I got that error when my 2.0 restore.ipsw was not in my itunes device folder I made that folder, copied the ipsw into it and It worked fine

      oh and what itunes are you using? Not sure if it matters for winpwn 2.0 but it wouldnt let me restore the custom ipsw unless I downgraded my iTunes back to 7.5

      I upgraded to 7.7 for the drivers, went down to 7.5, pwned, then back to 7.7

      worked on an both my iPhone 3g's and my First Gen iPhone

      hopefully that helped

      just thought I would let you know

      ok lets get some things strait
      before you run this you need to be on 2.0
      if your on another below 2.0 simply upgrade to 2.0
      you dont need to goto 1.1.4 first just upgrade strait to 2.0
      unlock only works on the 2G phones 3G is not unlocked and by what geohot has said i dont think its going to be unlocked any time soon
      and i would recommend to SKIP using this version of WinpWn untill the problems are fixed
      there is a problem with cyndia atm and its causing the ISPW creation to fail
      so my advice is wait off untill tomorrow when the errors will be fixed

      So I got all the way up to using iTunes and restoring, choosing my custom made iPSW. However, iTunes runs for a little bit, then tells me:

      "iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occurred. (1601)."

      I'm pretty darn sure I did everything right up to this point. What is this error?!?!?!
