    People aren't developing for the older Installer (version 3.x). Upgrade to 2.0.1 to get the latest updates =D

    Remember now, i'm still running 1.1.3. Now can I still update Installer to 2.0 without upgrading firmware to 2.0? Don't feel like going thru the whole hassle of updating and unlocking again! What do you guys think would be my best and easiest route to go? And thanks guys for responding soooo fast!

    This tutorial will use WinPwn to unlock and jailbreak your 2G iPhone on the 2.0 firmware. The latest version of WinPwn does install Installer.app

    IMPORTANT: Some 2G users have experienced problems with the latest version of WinPwn. Specifically if you select to install Cydia then WinPwn may crash during the IPSW build. Either deselect Cydia or you can still follow these instructions using WinPwn 2.0.0.3 and the 2.0.0 iPhone firmware.

    Please keep these notes in mind...
    - You MUST do a full uninstall of winpwn before installing the new version
    - Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes ( Currently 7.7)
    - WinPwn uses 300MB of ram at peak due to the ipsw being extracted in memory
    - You must first click browse and load an IPSW to use WinPwn (i thought this was clear)
    - For 2.0 only the *5A347_Restore.ipsw files are valid. The 345 image will not work
    - If you see Failed to load image catalog/payload catalog, this is fine and won't cause problems
    - If you already have service with AT&T do not activate or install Youtube Fix
    These are instructions on how to unlock and jailbreak your 2.0, 2G iPhone using Windows and WinPwn.


    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.

    Step One
    Create a folder on your desktop called Pwnage. In it place the following files: Winpwn 2.0.0.4 or Winpwn 2.0.0.4 , 3.9BL , 4.6BL , and the latest 2.0 firmware.


    Step Two
    Install WinPwn by extracting the downloaded zip from Step One and running the setup executable. Once WinPwn has been installed it will put a shortcut icon on your desktop. Double click to launch the application.


    Step Three
    Once WinPwn has opened click the Browse .ipsw button.


    Step Four
    Locate the 2.0 firmware file (iPhone1,1_2.0.1_5B108_Restore.ipsw) from the Pwnage folder on your desktop and click Open.


    Step Five
    WinPwn will check the firmware to make sure its valid. Now click the IPSW Builder button.


    Step Six
    The IPSW Builder window will open to the Applications tab. Check to select Cydia and if you are not on AT&T then check to select YouTube Fix.


    Step Seven
    Click to select the Custom Images tab. From here you can can select
    your own boot images.


    Remember the rules for them: RGB or Grayscale format with Alpha channel and dimension bellow 320x480. If you would like to use the iClarified ones they can be found here: Boot Logo, Recovery Logo


    Step Eight
    Click to select the Custom Payload tab. From this tab you can select custom payloads you have created to be automatically installed. We will discuss this in a future tutorial.


    Step Nine
    Click to select the Advanced tab. Check to select: Activate Phone, Enable Baseband update, and Unlock baseband.


    We will also need to load the Bootloader files. Click the Bootloader 3.9 button and then select the BL39.bin file in your Pwnage Folder. Then click the Bootloader 4.6 button and select the BL46.bin file in your Pwnage Folder.




    Step Ten
    Click the Build .ipsw button at the bottom left to build your custom ipsw firmware file. Navigate to your Pwnage folder and click the Save button.


    Step Eleven
    Once WinPwn has finished creating your custom firmware then click the iPwner button from the main menu.




    Step Twelve
    Select the custom firmware file we just built from the Pwnage folder on your desktop and click the Open button.


    Step Thirteen
    You will then be notified that your iTunes has been Pwned!


    Step Fourteen
    Next we will need to put the iPhone in the DFU mode and restore using iTunes. To put your iPhone into DFU mode please follow these instructions!

    Step Fifteen
    iTunes will prompt you that you are in recovery mode.


    Hold down Shift and click the Restore button in iTunes.


    A popup window will appear asking you to select your firmware. Select the Custom firmware file we saved in the Pwnage folder and then click the Open button.


    Once the restore is complete you will have your iPhone unlocked and jailbroken!

    Remember : First do a restore with itunes to 2.0.1. You phone will be locked and unjailbroken. No problems. Then create a custom ipsw using winpwn and partition set to 520mb. Checl cydia, installer and youtube fix. Connect your phone to itunes, set your phone to DFU mode, screen should be black if u do it correctly. When iphone recognises your phone, hold down shift button and press restore. Should do the trick. Goodluck!!!
