  • 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.

      For the ones who are having trouble getting it started, i don't know if this was posted or not but make sure you ctrl+alt+delete and bring up the task manager and stop the "itunes helper" process. It will save you from a lot of errors and time.

      Can someone explained why on the Advanced Tab of winpwn, the only options available are activate phone and no wipe? All the other options are grayed out. I cannot check them

      erm...no. 3G is purely hardware based (hence the new iphone !!).

      some people have been having an issue with cydia, try unchecking that box and retry it and see if it works...

      Itunes does get pwnd, it then allows it to load the unsigned firmware you just made.

      Ok, so mine worked and I'm on 2.0 unlocked/jb, BUT there seems to be a few errors with it.

      1. The Mail app doesn't load, I press it and it loads a white screen.
      2. The Cydia app is there, but when it refreshes, I get an error.
      3. It seems I can't delete my email account (restored from before), even after I press delete, it's still there?!

      Anybody who has had these problems, please post if you have any idea how to fix them. Please, any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Please Disconnect and Reconnect the iPod, then try again. An Unknown error occurred (-48)" click "Ok" and thats it, nothing else happens and the iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes. Now if I try again but click "Cancel" on the first notice that pops up it does nothing aswell and the iPhone Doesn't appear in iTunes. Meanwhile the iPhone still has a black screen and pressing either of the buttons does Nothing so I can't even disconnect and use the phone.

      I also have the latest version of iTunes, save anyone from having to ask.

      ANY Help would be Great,
      Thanks.
      I've now also tried it with itunes 7.5 which then saw my iPhone in DFU Recovery Mode so I held Shift and clicked "Restore", chose my custom firmware but got the 1601 error while it was 'Preparing iPhone for Restore'.
      So I went back to iTunes 7.7 which NOW actually sees my iphone in DFU Recovery Mode aswell! unlike before when it was having a fit and wondering wtf this thing was I had connected! So I do the whole restore thing again but 7.7 now gives me the 1601 error while 'Preparing iPhone for Restore' So while I have now managed to get further than before, my 1st gen 2.0 iPhone is still not Unlocked or Jailbroken! I hope theres a fix for this soon.

      Everyone calm down. Apple OS is written in Unix based language... when ported to Windows the ENTIRE program must be re-written for this work work which is a massive undertaking. This is why the first Winpwn took 2 months to come out after Pwnage. Give it a couple days to work the bugs out.. these guys are working hard to give you FREE software.
