    OK, so this is how I understand it...
    a) PWN your iPhone with Winpwn
    b) Create a custom ipsw with IPSWbuilder
    c) Rename custom .ipsw to .zip and extract
    d) copy over files from iBuilder bundle into extracted folder
    e) rezip and rename to .ipsw
    f) restore in iTunes to custom ipsw

    It seems fairly intuitive, but I just wanted to make sure I'm doing the right thing before I take the plunge...???

    Read the post right above yours.

    FYI, IPSW is a zip file for all intents and purposes.

    I'm receiving a beta version of it soon because I'm helping with it. There hasn't been a set release yet. Chronic is still working on some new features.

    Where exactly do you copy the files when you say "into the extracted folder"?

    I'm starting to believe IPSWtool will never come. It's been in the works before WinPwn was..... and now there's an IPSW builder for windows.... What the hell is going on here?!

    The zip you just extracted....? Which is in turn the ipsw.

    This still sounds cool, but what about installer application updates.? Will your custom IPSW applications update through installer?

    Sweet! I was thinking about borrowing my friend's mac tonight to pwn my firmware, but totally didn't know how to add a custom payload. Thanks for making my evening so much greater!

    i understand that... but the folder generated is "iBuilder.bundle" Does this just get copied anywhere I randomly choose in the extracted ipsw contents or does it go somewhere specific. Do I copy the entire folder over or only the contents of the folder ("files & plist").... it's not intuitive.

    hey my 12 year old sister says that too
    When I said that I was 'king of forwards', you got to understand that I don't come up with this stuff. I just forward it along. You wouldn't arrest a guy who was just passing drugs from one guy to another?

    OK... when trying to restore to the custom firmware with the iBuilder.bundle files added to the ipsw file I get iTunes Error (1) after it finishes extracting the file. What does this mean....?

    Edit: According to Hachint0sh the iBuilder bundles can only be taken over to a Mac and loaded in through that version which supports bundles. Can someone confirm?
    Edit 2: iTunes would not accept my firmware with the bundle files (error 1) and would not accept the standard custom ipsw (error 10) most likely due to unsuitable boot/restore images. Going to tryu again with different custom images and without the bundle files....
    Edit 3: 3 attempts with different custom boot images (from Hackint0sh custom boot image thread) that were confirmed as working have all given me Error 10 in iTunes. Going to restore back to stock and re-pwn with my Mac this evening and try it all over again... ugh!

    Okay, I was pretty much totally wrong the first time...I guess you have to copy the files from the bundle over to your phone via OpenSSH or something like that AFTER jailbreaking with winpwn. The whole directory structure in iBuilder's bundle gets created on your phone after the iTunes restore, not before.

    Finally, I won't have to spend days resetting and re-installing everything after restores. It just needs to come out for the Mac.

    my question is if you have to just SSH it in, do you have to use winpwn to jailbreak or can you use this for any jailbroke phone by any method?

    this has to be incorrect.. what would be the point of this app then?

    i thought the point of this app was to get all the apps and settings the way you want them, put them together with the file created by the WinPwn, compress them into a zip file, change the extension and use the file thru itunes that way.. am i wrong?
