    Default QuickPwn = No Unlocking later ?
    hi guys

    Its not quickpwn that interferes, Dont upgrade past 2.0.1 however if you want to unlock later.

    Firmwares past 2.0.1 decrease the chance of having an unlock method later.

    If you use quickpwn you WONT loose anything.

    However, if you use Pwnage (Winpwn) you WILL loose everything cause you will have to do a restore. Then you would have to re-sync.

    Is there alot of bugs with 2.X firmwares? I'm still running 1.1.4 because a mod. at planet-iphones said "if you want things to run smoothly and without bugs, stay on 1.1.4" Has 2.0.2 fixed everything, or is there still bugs?

    I love winpwn because of the features, easy to use, cool logos, add apps from it (payloads) And unlock and activate with YouTube fix
    I also love partion resizer Because u can install many more apps and things

    Also Winpwn will include Quickpwn for 2.0.X

    hey minny....

    I have only ever used iliberty+ in the past.... if I use quickpwn, can I use 2.0.2 firmware? Someone said in another post that you had to use 2.0.1 with it? That make any sense?

    I meant that with Winpwn it has many feature like:
    Cool user interface
    Install Cydia, Installer
    Activate Youtube
    Unlock, activate and neuter
    Add custom payloads
    Resize the root size for more apps and tweaks and themes (partion resizer)
    And quick is included so u can't to wrong- it's all about ur opion if u don't like winpwn use quickpwn

    Can someone give me the glaring difference between QUICKPWN and WINPWN? What reason is there for both?

    Reply:
    I really do not know ur answer mike but I thnk u should restore then use quick to unlock and jailbrake
    it

    Also to clear stuff up
    By using custom payloads u can add potted 2.0.X apps without installing them threw cydia but they are installed inside the custom ipsw and is installed in the restore

    Custom payloads are in a .tar format justlike when u click inatall installer and Cydia in winpwn it says "adding cydia.tar/installer.tar"

    Hope this claers up some problems

    A custom payload would be an additional task while jailbreaking (like relocating fonts and ringtones or additional apps). YouTube gets activated by iTunes with a legit account so if you don't "hacktivate" it then it will pop up with a "cannot activate youtube" message when you try and open it.

    Winpwn builds an entire custom firmware which you use iTunes and restore to it. Quickpwn uses a RAM disk and installs installer and cydia without having to restore. The catch here is that you have to be on wifi... download bootneuter and unlock the phone. Quickpwn only jailbreaks and activates I believe.

    winpwn: create a custom ipsw file that within it has the unlock and jailbrake inside it and u restore with iTunes to jailbrake the phone
    With winpwn u can unlock, activate, install installer and Cydia, activate YouTube, add Payloads (see my other post) resize the root partion size for more room for apps and themes and stuff with custom images that are easy to choose from the u restore your phone with the custom ipsw

    Quickpwn
    An easy way to just jailbrake and install boot images, cydia, and ibstaller, no parkin resizer, no unlock, no activate just a 5 min unlock with u following guides to hold home button

    Personally I like winpwn
