Gaetan - December 19, 2008 at 1:20am
Just wanted to thank you for your tutorial. I attempted to unlock my phone using WinPwn prior to reading your tutorial -- the program crashed and left my phone in a non-operational state. I thought I had bricked the phone. I was using version 8 of iTunes. You can imagine my relief when I learned how to recover the phone. It's working fine now. Thanks again!
Max - January 27, 2009 at 12:17am
i used this software and i made a mistake of using version 8 and it crashed while pwning and now i think im stuck in DFU mode that cant be detected by itunes and thus i cant restore/revert or do anything with my iphone can someone advice me on how to proceed to restore my iphone. it was unlocked/jailbreak from 1.1.3 ziphone itunes updated to 2.2 using restore from iclarified restore copy then it crashed and I cant get to use my iphone now. Any help will be much appreciated

I'm currently on unlocked 1.1.3. Do I upgrade to firmware 2.0 before following this guide or can I go straight to 2.0 using this guide?

its great. thanks loads. i got stuck at step 23 as well and my iphone went blank with a white screen. However, i proceeded with the next step which is restoring from iTunes and soon after, my phone was working again (:
titan - November 1, 2008 at 3:01am
hello guys, Noone mentioned problem with "No Service", I had 2.1 firmware and changed to 2.0.2, because there is no pawntool for 2.1 version. I did all steps described in tutorial, everything was fine, without any problems, but at the end I came up with "no signal" if anybody had same problem, please help me.
yasmina - October 28, 2008 at 3:52pm
i did all the steps with version 1.1.2 iphone, upgradin to 2.0.2. the same exact thing happens to me - the screen goes white and blank and at the same time WinPwn freezes and my laptop ends the program... even then i went to my Pwnage folder on my desktop and double clicked the custom iphone 2.0.2 restore and i restored my iphone on itunes. It does everything right and then at the very end it says that i don't have a supported sim card carrier. i have the AT & T sim card but i didnt activate it and im using another sim card cuz i live out of the states. what do i do then? whats the solution here? this is so annoyin please help. future reference for anyone considering upgrading their iphone - DON"T DO IT. its fine the way it is if it was working perfectly before. DON'T UPGRADE IT. it causes way too many problems and now im prolly gona go to the apple store and pay a gazillion pounds to fix my iphone. thank you itunes, tellin me to upgrade my iphone and not sayin anythin about what exactly that means.

up and running. from start to the end. i f'ed up restored my phone to 1.1.4 and lost all my stuff. once again i f'ed up and updated it to 2.0.2 downgraded it to 1.1.4 using the tutorial from using itunes 8.0 i runned winpwn 2.5 just as the tutorial above. winpwn 2.5 crashed while preparing the phone to restore opened itunes and restore it (shift+restore) selecting the custom ipsw created in winpwn 2.5 it took from 30 to 40 mins to finish it up now up and running thx a bunch to the team that made all this possible.
msp - September 28, 2008 at 12:33pm
just a few comments... it is written in pwn.hlp that this soft is supposed to be used to unlock and jailbreak iphones running on 1.1.3 or 1.1.4 (jailbroke and unlocked or not), so if you updated your iphone using itunes you will need to downgrade it and restart. 2nd it seems that this soft was written to work with itunes i tried it with itunes 7.5 and with 8.0 and it crashed on step 23. i'm trying right now to restore it in itunes using the custom file written, jumping a few steps of the tuto.
gatorgee - September 26, 2008 at 6:15pm
Running on 2.0.2 from 1.1.4 ziphone! Worked like a charm, no problems. Hooray App Store!!
gatorgee - September 26, 2008 at 3:24pm
Anyone done this from 1.1.4 ziphone to 2.0.2?
subodh - September 26, 2008 at 6:17am

Itunes 7.7....Never heard about
afshin - September 17, 2008 at 2:56am
I think that is the problem. there is only itunes 8.0 on apple site. Does anyone know where to get the itunes 7.7 ? that will solve most of our problems. Thnx in advance.

mike huang - September 17, 2008 at 2:14am
does not work with itune 8. it will just get stuck after about 10 minutes
Deetee - September 17, 2008 at 12:13am
Thank you so much! One last thing, you said iTunes, do you think it'll work with iTunes 8pointwhatever. It's the newest one :) x

hey guys so i tried this a good 5 times and kepts getting stuck on 23 so i just gave it a shot and went on to the next step! if you got to step 23 and your phone is in DFU mode,... that means the firware has already been written! continue to the next step and go to itunes and restore it. remember to press and hold shift and choose your file. also, what i discovered is that if u have 2.0.2 firmware, you must have the itunes not the .43 or whatever hope this helps let me know how its goes! PS. have patience cause itunes takes forever to restore it! it took me a good 30 to 40 minutes
Deetee - September 16, 2008 at 5:18pm
Hey! Since I keep getting stuck on step 23 (Winpwn crashes and my iPhone screen goes blank) I was wondering if it were possible to directly use iTunes to restore my phone, because I have the custom IPSW file. If that's possible, all I'd have to do is hold shift while clicking the Restore button on iTunes, right? If it isn't, can some please tell me how to fix the "crashing" issue? Thank you :) x
yannick - September 16, 2008 at 12:56pm
im stuck on step 23 the winpwn crashes and says i need to quit. leaving my iphone in a white screen . i press and hold the power button and phone goes back to normal
yannick - September 16, 2008 at 11:05am
everyone i need your help does it work with itunes 8.0 ???

I had purchased an 1.1.4 OTB (out of the Box). I had jail broken it, unlocked it, and activated using ziphone. Now i updated the phone to 2.02 using the above method and let me say it worked perfectly and first time. Thanks for all the comments and for everyone who helped created this great software!!
sandra - September 15, 2008 at 9:49pm
today after several tries, I finally was able to succeed!!! I have my 2G iphone on 2.0.2, jailbroken, activated and unlocked. Very important: keep itunes closed during the whole process until winpwn tells your iphone is ready to receive custom firmwares. When restoring from itunes, be patient, it takes sometime to finish the complete process. Great, I'm gonna start getting the most of appstore and cydia
Nicklas - September 15, 2008 at 5:46pm
Perfect! It worked flawless! I went from 1.1.1 to 2.02 without any problems! Thank you!
andrei - September 15, 2008 at 10:48am
im completely new to this, i just bought an iphone 2g edge with the intension of using with tmobile, from my understanding following these steps will allow me to do so. but i had just a few questions(because im so new to the consept lol) in the presess it tells me to say yes to deleting the bootNeuter what is that and why am i deleting it, not that i dont trust the steps but from the comment i have read some ppl didnt delete that thing so i just wanted to make sure lol. thanks in advenced :) o i have win. vista and im from US
gwadG - September 15, 2008 at 6:29am
HELPHELPHELP...I hope someone can answer this simple question. IS IT OK TO GO STRAIGHT FROM 1.1.3 unlocked/jailbroken 1st Gen iphone with T-MOBILE sim card to 2.0.1 using this method???? i ask because i read so many places with people getting bricked iphones from this upgrade/pwning. Do you have to restore iphone back to factory-type settings??? Or what, maybe upgrade from 1.1.3 to 1.1.4, then to 2.0 or 2.01 or it doesn't matter? I'm not the most enlghtened individual so if anyone can help i'd appreciate it. P L E A S E
