  • 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.

      amen to that. a few more days won't kill us.

      i tryed on 7.7, and 7.5 neither worked. my 7.5 keeps getting errors after i put the iphone in DFU mode. also these are working on two totally different computers to minimize the chances of the two itunes versions conflicting.


      Anyone get it to work yet??????????

      I can't get mine to build a iPSW so I'll just wait a bit to see what happens with the new one that's coming out today. Hopefully they'll explain it a little more.

      Pretty awesome how quickly this came out though, GREAT job!

      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.
      You have to make sure that you start out as a fresh iphone in iTunes. If you back up and restore the back up you can have these problems.

      Good luck

      that's the general gist i've been getting, i freaked out when i saw that it was out already, and was really tempted to try it on my lunch, now i'm probably going to wait until they release it today with the cydia fix... a few more hours won't kill us... right?

      Its just doesnt work, I had problems with the whole process from start to finish. I really love winpwns offical instructions, a nice 4 step process. Cheers for making us look like gourmless t**ts infront of mac

      Right now im restoring back to 2.0 (custom ipsw gets an error (8) message) and Im getting real pi**ed off having to minamise itunes repeatedly because it thinks it can own my desktop.

      Next time you make some software, make sure it works before you release it, and give detailed instructions so mongaloids like me can use it.

      Try a normal restore mode instead of DFU, that's how I got mine to work.

      If I choose to "setup as a new iphone", is there any way I can transfer my contacts? I don't mind losing music/settings/etc as long as I can keep my contacts info.

      There's no way to output save to SIM and then import SIM again? Or something of the sort to backup my contacts?
