    Default How to use Winpwn to change boot logos ONLY
    For those of you who are reluctant to attempt this when you see Winpwn ask you to put your iPhone into restore mode, fear not. If you do this correctly you will not lose any apps, settings, graphics anything.

    First: This will only work if your iPhone is already pwned.

    Next, some background on recovery vs. DFU modes:

    There is a difference between "restore" and "DFU". The names may be somewhat confusing to some. When we are upgrading and jailbreaking a new firmware we generally are going into "DFU" mode. I think when pwoplw erroneouly get 'restore" mode the jailbreaks are either unsuccessful or result in very unstable iPhones.
    The way to tell the difference is that DFU mode will leave you with a totally black screen, restore mode is where you will see the restore logo.

    The procedure assuming your iphone is ALREADY pwned:

    1. Open iTunes and plug in iPhone
    2. Open Winpwn
    3. Select Browse .ipsw
    4. Navigate to the stock iPhone firmware you have downloaded on your desktop. Should be in cDocuments and Settings\'your user name'\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
    5. in Winpwn click on Custom Logos
    6. Click on 'boot logo' and navigate to where your file is on your PC OR click on "search online" for premade logos
    7. Repeat same process for restore logo if desired
    8. click on "update logos"
    9. If Winpwn asks you to put the iPhone into recovery mode, go to next step. Other wise I assume it will complete the process automatically.
    10. Open ZiPhone. Expand the "Advanced Functions" tab
    11. UNCHECK all boxes that are checked if any are
    12. Click on "Recovery Mode".
    13. At this point you should see the recovery logo on your iPhone screen and Winpwn will proceed to change your logos.
    14. Wait until Winpwn is finished- should not take longer than a couple of minutes.
    15. If your iPhone is left in recovery mode, go back into Ziphone
    16. UNCHECK all boxes that are checked if any are
    17. Click on "Normal Mode"
    18. Wait- should be a couple of minutes at most, you will see some white text on your iPhone screen
    19. Your iPhone lock screen will appear and you're done.

    Hope this helps with some of the confusion between pwning, building a custom .ipsw and swapping boot logos.

    I use Gimp to make the boot logos. You need to have a transparent layer underneath your image. The transparent layer needs to be 320 x 480 pixels . You can then put your image on top but make sure some of the transparent pixels show on all sides. In other words, resize the actual image to something like 318 x 476. Save for web in Gimp using PNG-24 (or PNG -8 if file size is too big). Files need to be under 100kb.

    I'd love to be able to change the boot logo only on my upgraded to 2.0.1 2G iPhone but the new Winpwn (2..0.0.4) doesnt seem to allow that function. Wondering if the old Winpwn would work.

    Hi,

    I followed you guide and like many others I too had a Grey un-clickable Custom Logos button. I found the solutition.

    You need
    iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore
    not
    Custom-iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore

    (Lame 2.0 will prob work as well.)

    Then you will be able to click the Custom Logos button.

    Renaming it may work but I haven't tried it.

    Hope this helps.

    Where do we get the stock iPhone firmware? Is this the same firmware downloaded previously when we began the winpwn process [that 256 meg file or whatever]?

    Also this works on 3G correct?

    I believe with a Mac you need to use Pwnage and that you cannot change just the boot logo.

    However, for a 3G you can use the original version of Quickpwn on Windows, not the GUI version. You need to replace the logo.png and restore.png in the Quickpwn folder and then you need to open up and edit the iPhone 3G.bat file (right click, edit)

    This is what you will see:
    @echo off

    if exist "iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw" goto good
    goto notgood

    :good

    quickpwn "iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw" n82ap -b logo.png -r recovery.png Cydia.tar.gz

    goto done

    :notgood
    echo ERROR: iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw not found!

    :done
    pause

    Delete what I have highlighted in red.

    Save the file keeping the same name- Make a back up of the original and move it out of the folder.

    Your new file will look like this:

    @echo off

    if exist "iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw" goto good
    goto notgood

    :good

    quickpwn "iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw" n82ap -b logo.png -r recovery.png

    goto done

    :notgood
    echo ERROR: iPhone1,2_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw not found!

    :done
    pause

    Rerun Quickpwn using a 2.0.1 (yes 2.0.2) firmware.

    New boot and restore logos and no alteration to your jailbreak or mods.

    Disclaimer:

    This worked when I had my 3G jailbroken with Quickpwn to begin with. I do not know if this will work if you have already jailbroken with Winpwn 2.5.
