How to Unlock/Jailbreak Your 2.0.x 2G iPhone (Windows) [WinPwn 2.5]

These are instructions on how to unlock and jailbreak your 2.0.x 2G iPhone using WinPwn 2.5 for Windows. They have been updated for iPhone firmware 2.0.2.

To follow this tutorial you will need to have iTunes 7.7 installed (make sure to reboot). Also, you may need to download and install .Net Framework if you are on Windows XP. Finally, make sure you completely uninstall any previous version of WinPwn. Thanks to cmw for all his hard work on this!

IMPORTANT: There is a confirmed bug with WinPwn 2.5 that can cause the WinPwn application to crash during the creation of your IPSW. Some users are finding that increasing the partition size to 700-900 MB will resolve the issue. To specify the root size partition click the Expert Mode button before starting the tutorial. You will be asked to resize the partition before the IPSW starts building.


Step One
Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage. In it place Winpwn 2.5 (mirror) and the latest 2.0 firmware.
