How to use winpwn
Now that WinPwn is officialy out i've decided to make a nice and easy guide for people to use.
]First thing first, you need to get a copy of winpwn. then you need to get the 1.1.4 restore file for your iphone or ipod touch.
Open up winpwn and select browse .ipsw . To get the 1.1.4 firmware you can download it from the apple website, and SpoonForKnife has all the firmware links in his signature.Select *iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore.ipsw or iPod1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore.ipsw . then press open
*If you need to restore for whatever reason you can do this by holding down the home and power buttons while plugged into the computer.
winpwn tool will alert when the firmware is ready. Now select ipwner, scrolling white text will appear on your device, don't worry this is normal. winpwn will let you know when your device is pwned, *and it will say wait for reboot, don't touch ANYTHING
First select ipsw builder, and a new window will popup, it will have three tabs.Then go into custom packages tab (which is the first tab), and select apps you want to be on your firmware. Always install BSD subsystem. In custom logos(the second one) tab, select wether or not you want custom logos and pick the ones you want.
then in the general tabs (which is the third one) select what you want to do. *I recommend selecting activate, enable baseband update, neuter bootloader, unlock baseband, and auto delete bootneuter.app.[/center]
as you can see winpwn wants a thing called bootloader pictures. the BL-46. bin and BL-39. bin, you will have to find these on your own as they are illegal and property of apple.
Once you click build ipsw, winpwn will create a custom firmware and load it into itunes' directory. Then go into itunes and on your cpu shift-click on restore and choose your custom firmware. When your device restarts it load bootneuter.app don't touch anything wait for it to go to the home screen[
I really hope this helps!

With 1.1.4 firmware, under Update Bootloader, is it better to select Downgrade to 3.9 or Upgrade to 4.6?

Thanks tried that also but it still gives me error (6) and then i booted it out of recovery using ziphone and it used the boot Neuter and started up saying winpwn script startup and went through all that but no apps were there except the orig and no ipod app lol can you send me a custom payload/firmware file to my email thanks [email protected]
06-12-2008, 02:38 PM #12
error 6 usually means the firmware is bad, i'll try sending you one

I've been having trouble restoring/reloading firmware on to my iPhone. When I have my white screen (UDF) I've tried to restore and get the same error 6 at the end of iTune's attempts, I tried winpwn and it tells me the phone's being pwnt but and to wait for reboot, but it never reboots... help!

maybe stupid questions:
do i need to restore my iphone in itunes first and then do this? (i already jailbroke with ziphone)
will regular restore work or do i need DFU restore?
if i just want to jailbreak (i.e. not activate), then im assuming i dont check 'activate phone'. is there anything else i should AVOID checking (like, 'enable baseband', etc?)

Thanks for the step by step guide.
I have tried this tutorial here... iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock Your iPhone With WinPwn [Updated] and well I did everything correct but when I came to loading iTunes and shift restore the custom FW, I got error at the very end and had to restore my iPhone back to 1.1.4FW origianl Apple's FW. So now im back to scratch... I guess I wil try this and see what happens...
Can anyone help here?
Im using 1.1.4FW on 16GB iPhone (1Generation) and what bootloader should I use?
What do u guys think about these settings...?
Ill click ipsw builder and choose these for applications...
The rest I can add my own sources and install SSH and everything else through Installer.app or Cydia.app
Now for advanced settings...
Enable baseband update
Upgrade bootloader 4.6 ????
Auto delete bootneuter.app ?????
What do u guys think about these settings??
