The new winpwn 2.0 is out! you can grab it here:
Michael - July 24, 2008 at 4:04am
Okay, everyone go download Winpwn 2.0. It just came out tonight. Then follow the above steps (2.0 is VERY similar to the instructions listed here). If you need help, do a search for "unlock iPhone 2.0 winpwn" in Google. Oh, and need WinRAR to open that bootloader RAR file you downloaded.

Maybe I'm just dumb, but you might wanna advise peeps that they have to be on 1.1.4 first before they do anything. That was my probelm not knowing I ahd to have 1.1.4 on. Other than that great tutorial.

It finally works. 1. Put the iPhone in DFU mode. 2. Restore in iTunes to 1.1.4. (iTunes v7.6.2.9) 3. Received error 1015. 4. Run the modified version of ZiPhone with all 3 boxes checked. (App not run) 5. Put the iPhone in restore mode. 6. Restore in ITunes to 1.1.4.. again... 7. Run the modified version of ZiPhone again. (App normal running. See iPhone screen) 8. Restore in ITunes to 1.1.4.. again... No errors this time. 7. Used the standard ZiPhone 3.0 to "Do it all". 8. It works!

I also got the "Winpwn... 'No Message Provided'" How do i get it working from there?
VALPERTA - July 6, 2008 at 8:33pm
The best is the Ziphone 3.0 running smoothly and thousands of iphone. I think the WINPWN gives many problems.
finagle69 - July 3, 2008 at 12:25pm
I've pwned an OTB 1.1.4, but after loading the custom firmware, Settings>General says i'm running firmware 1.1.3 (4A102). Is this normal behavior?
daz - June 26, 2008 at 8:46pm
My unit is a 1.1.1 OTB jailbroken to 1.1.2 and ran smoothly. I've used Winpwn for 1.1.4 but during the reboot, the scrolling script includes 'appleimage not found' and 'NOR flashing failed'. After creating the cutoms ipsw file, iTunes' message is ' error 1604'.
Rami - June 23, 2008 at 6:24pm
did all the steps....the iphone unlocked...but the bootneuter didn't i did the steps all over again....and now i am stuck at the boot logo. anyone ???
john - June 20, 2008 at 6:19pm
Ok right, an addition: after rebooting and bootneuter ending i got the message 'No Message provided'. I used the beta version of winpwn and downloaded all the relevant files, etc.
john - June 20, 2008 at 6:14pm
Just ran the newest beta version and got a 'winpwn - No message provided'.
harry - June 2, 2008 at 11:46am

Him - May 22, 2008 at 6:32am

I see always the same message, as Philou saw "couldn't find all required files ... please check your installation of this app". :( My mail is you would like to help. ;)
tatanka - May 12, 2008 at 2:20pm
Why I have to Download the iTunes DLLs to your Desktop from Prodigy60, MegaUpload . Why Step Six, Extract the you download earlier to the folder you installed WinPwn is necessary. Can some one explain please.
Philou - May 11, 2008 at 10:13am

iClarified - May 9, 2008 at 11:58am
@smokin, you are most likely using the older version of WinPwn which was missing alot of features!
smokin - May 9, 2008 at 7:36am
HI, I am shocked i tried the guide but as u say there's no application tab in the ipsw Builder section and it's not enabling the bootloader , baseband file etcc!!! I was rying to upgrade to 2.0 first but as i saw that i think it must have been disabled in 2.0 but in 1.1.4 firmware is not working at all !! does only my computer facing this problem

va you have to put the iPhone in restore mode to bypass the activation screen in iTunes
