    Please reply when your finished so we know it works. I thought that pwnage tool must modify the iPhone to accept a custom firmware, and if not, what is the point of pwnage tool in the first place? Can't you simply redistribute the customized 2.0 firmware?

    Yeah, this does make sense... I'm not sure why one doesnt just distribute the ipsw... hmm. Id like to hear a more definitive answer to this...

    If we are simply able to restore to a custom firmware, then this is a big folly on Apple's part.


    Good luck to all of you.

    To answer questions, yes you need to run the WinPwn software to pwn your iPhone first to be able to install custom .ipsw files. If you don't pwn it and immediately try a custom firmware in iTunes, it just won't work.

    Thats what I figured, however there are reports on that forum (linked in the OP) that it worked. Let's wait and see.

    I would not recommend OP's method. First of all, it is not faster, and you have to deal with command lines and multiple .ispw files. I don't see how hard it is to

    Download WinPwn.
    Pwn your device.
    Put it in DFU Mode
    Shift+Restore a Custom Firmware
    Set as new iPhone
    And there you go. Seems more risk free to me.

    but winpwn is not out for iPhone 3G yet so this method is the best we can get so far

    Where must we deal with command line?

    And WinPWN isn't available yet for Windows users. I have a 3G, not a first gen iPhone.

    this is for 3g iphone man, we cant pwn it with winpwn because we can't downgrade from 2.0 on the 3g phone

    have tryed it early today, but was downloading the files using internet explorer and were downloaded as zip files, then i changed the extension manually, was gettin and error #6, after trying to install the custom restore file using itunes pressing the shift key and restore and selecting the file.

    gonna try again, wont give up that easy, downloading files with safari and see if it works.
