  • 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.

      cockyjeremy, any clue as to what these files are?

      :P

      I have the ipsw problem.. If I select Cydia as a package, the creation of the file aborts.. On XP and on Vista

      With Cydia unselected, it'll make the package. But iTunes won't install the software when you try to restore it. It gets as "extracting the software", then seems to get into an endless loop preparing the iPhone for update.

      I tried xpwn too, the package it creates is the same.

      I'm going to try restoring to a CLEAN 1.1.4 later and see what happens..

      Could you please clarify the above statement regarding the two files? If there is a way for me to unlock the phone using another method other than winpwn, I am all ears.

      I am in the same boat as everyone - I followed every step and continue to get the same 1601 error message. I now have a locked iPhone with 2.0 firmware that I am unable to use.

      Thanks.

      If you have an iPhone 3g, you can jailbreak if you have these two files:
      iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw
      x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw

      Follow this:

      ================================================== ===
      Instructions for Jailbreaking your iPhone 3G ONLY on Windows (tested on Vista, but should work the same on XP)
      ================================================== ===

      MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR PHONE

      1. You need to download two files:
      x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw and iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw. You can get both of them over in this torrent:


      2. Make sure you have itunes 7.7 installed.

      for vista: Click start then copy this into the search box and press enter after:
      for XP: click start then run, then copy this into the run box:

      Code:

      %appdata%\Apple Computer\iTunes

      3. Make a directory callled: Device Support

      If it already exists, clear it.

      4. copy x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw into the Device Support folder you just created.

      5. ok, you need to get your device into DFU mode. watch this video to see how:
      [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiTcKMZfyfk]YouTube - How to put your iPhone in DFU mode[/ame]

      6. Once your phone is in DFU mode and detected by iTunes (should be black screen on phone NOT itunes logo with usb cable), click on iphone in itunes, then hold the SHIFT key and click on restore.

      7. Browse to the folder where you downloaded iPhone1,2_2.0_5A347_Custom_Restore.ipsw and select it. itunes will then extract the file and you will see the ipod dev team's pinapple logo pop up after a few seonds, like this:

      http://imagestore.ugbox.net/image/DS...e6f46cfd81.jpg

      8. when restoring has completed, it will ask you to connect to itunes, then re-do the activation process (download carrier settings)

      9. Restore your backup! this should automatically be made. it should pop up right after downloading carrier settings, but you may also do it by right clicking your iphone on the left, and selecting "restore iphone"

      10. That's it, you're done!
      ================================================== ===
      Disclaimer: I am not responsible if any of this bricks your phone. i have tried it myself and with another OCAU member and it has been fine, but THIS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK
      ================================================== ===


      EDIT: ONE LAST THING.. DFU IS NOT WHERE IT SHOWS YOU TO CONNECT TO ITUNES... DFU IS A TOTALLY BLACK SCREEN!!!! ANYONE 1601 ERRORS.. YOU ARE IN RESTORE, NOT DFU!!!!


      Hope this helps..

      Just to clarify, this method only works with the 3G iPhone as opposed to the first generation?

      I have the first generation iPhone. I followed every single instruction given, including the DFU mode (yes, the screen on my iPhone is completely dark and the taskbar stated that my phone was in DFU mode). However, I am still getting the 1601 error - I tried to downgrade itunes to 7.5 and tried removing the SIM as some other people recommended. Still nothing.

      I'll just wait until a more stable version of winpwn is released since I now have a locked iPhone with the 2.0 firmware.

      Same here! I been trying to get this working for about an hour and I quit. I been following numerous tutorials by the book and nothing. It crashes at the last part of ipsw builder. The program obviously has many bugs to be worked out. I'll wait till the next version comes out before I try to jailbreak my phone. Nice try guys! But no cigar!

      It works with the original iPhone, but with two other custom firmware versions. I'd have to find them online to find the name of them. Apparently the original/3g use two different versions of 2.0, or something along those lines. 1601 error is for Restore mode.. so that's weird if you're 100% sure you are in DFU.

      Not really, on my Vista, a bubble pops up and states 'Iphone detected in DFU mode' etc. I get the black screen you speak of. Yet I still get 160x error.

      Are you on a 1st gen or iPhone 3g? If you're on a 1st gen, you need other custom firmware.. not the two file names i just gave.

      Great guide except for the fact that pwning and restoring to a firmware that doesn't have Cydia is not favorable. Best thing to do is wait until it's fixed so you can have a "complete" jailbreak.

      I followed this procedure by the letter and I got a 1600 and 1601 error during phone restore with custon ipsw. Nice try keep up the good work! I cant wait till the bugs are fixed.

      Exactly! No sense in jailbreaking without any cydia or installer app. I personally would rather have installer App but I guess Cydia will do for now.
