More WinPwn 2.5 Previews

Looks like WinPwn 2.5 will be here soon. WinPwn is the Windows version of PwnageTool for Mac. It jailbreaks your iPhone or iPod Touch and also unlocks 1st Gen iPhones. So far it’s not available for download yet but it will support firmware 2.0.2. Here’s some feature notes and screenshots:

– QuickPwn support (2.0/2.0.1/2.0.2)
– DFU helper
– Automatic updater (yay no more downloading new installers)
– Plus much more….

Thanks to @sgtdecimal for tipping us on this one!

  1. they need quickpwn for mac :(

    • Seriously. What’s with all the windows love?

    • i dont see why nobody thinks of the emulation capabilities on both sides….

    • the reason y windows gets so much is cuz macs always get things first cause everyone presumes everyone uses a mac. wen 2.0 came out windows users had to wait longer than mac users b4 they could jailbreak their fones.

    • I don’t see why you are complaining. When you restore your iPhone/iPod touch, don’t you want it to be jailbroken right away?

    • I have a question. My 3G was jailbroken using Mac’s Pwnage Tool. Can I now use WinPwn or QuickWinPwn to jaibreak and activate my phone with 2.02 software/firmware update, or do I have to wait for Mac version? I have both mac and win computers.

    • Seriously why update the 1st gen Phone if we don’t have 3G?

  2. And when comes the 3G Software Unlock ? ;-(

  3. I’m glad it’s about to be released! I am going to jailbreak a friends 3G phone this weekend so maybe I’ll get to use 2.5! Good job Chris!!

  4. I know this is BS coming out with the windows versions before the mac ones urgh!

  5. Now it’s a fork – one is QuickPWN and another is WinPWN? @.@

  6. Horray for windows :).

    • For once, Windows users aren’t getting shafted. It’s always been Mac only first. :3

    • An iphone is a Mac. Obviously the vast majority of buyers are Windows users, but that doesn’t change the fact that an iPhone is a Mac. Get used t that, Windows people. Mac should be the pre-eminent platform for anything iPhone related. For those with some kind of historical contempt for Mac, all I can say is get a Windows Mobile phone. I’m very disturbed with the Dev Team for going Windows this time around, with still no Mac solution in sight, at 2:40 AM EST, Thursday August 21.

      for me its ok that windows versions are first because 80% of the people have windows like me!

    • Robert some advice, windows might be crap and completly useless but at the same time macs are so much worse in comparison. linux just owns them both due to the fact its open source, something microsoft and apple dont like.

  7. Of course, I finally buy a Mac and now this. I can never win. :)

  8. I don’t know what you Mac users are whining about? Use pwnage! If pwnage can be used in windows I’ll be more than willing to use that than winpwn. Not that I hate winpwn, please don’t get me wrong. But the GUI of pwnage alone makes my statement a no-brainer. What do you think is so special about quickpwn? Are you not happy with pwnage at all? I’ll never use this. But then maybe I’m alone in with that mentality. Quickpwn is so NOT ELEGANT. Pwnage IS and STILL BE the number one jailbreak/unlock/activate tool ever. And its on the Mac! Winpwn will only be second fiddle to it. Before Winpwn can do anything pwnage did that first. So quit whining! No matter what you say, no matter how jealous you can be, that is the fact for you right there! And besides, who’s jailbreaking/unlocking/activating/restoring/updating EVERY SINGLE TIME a new, shiny tool comes out?

    I’m a windows user, just so you know.

  9. Just wondering has the new 2.0.1 or 2.0.2 been unlocked yet? and is it available with any of the winpwn or quickpwn?

  10. a new quickpwn version has been released, supporting 2.0.2

  11. I’m all for Mac and all, but seriously – who doesn’t have access to a Windows machine at home/work/school/friend? Also, as someone noted earlier, it is possible to emulate Windows on a Mac.

    Anyways, great news about WinPwn 2.5. Looking forward to it.

    Does anyone know if it is (or going to be) possible to upgrade from a jailbroken 2.0 to a jailbroken 2.0.2 (3g) without doing a restore (and loosing all the stuff)? As I understand it, it’s possible to upgrade to 2.0.2 via Apple and then quickpwn.. but then the baseband would be upgraded.. :/

    The good thing about Macs are that you can run Windows on them. You guys with Macs have the best of both worlds!

  13. I don’t understand why folks are getting upset about WinPwn 2.5. This is just WinPwn with a nice, easy to use GUI. It is not magic and it won’t unlock a 3G phone. It is also not a Dev team tool. They developed the original Pwnage tool for Mac and now the QuickPwn tool for Windows. WinPwn in its various stages has been done by CMW (Chris Wade). All you Mac users can relax as this is not the Dev team turning against you. WinPwn 2.5 just gives PC users an easier to understand pwning tool….

  14. What is the difference between Quickpwn and Winpwn. i know Quickpwn is faster and WinPwn builts a new ipsw file. So Quickpwn is better?

    • That depend on what you want to do. If you just want to jailbreak and add Cydia without building a custom ipsw then Quickpwn is faster and easier to understand.

  15. hola,
    hay que esperarlo, a ver si ahora si me decido
    a hacerle jaibreake con esta nueva version,
    tengo un 3G ,
    saludos mty, nuevo leon

  16. windows vs ( mac +moc +macmac + mac 3000 + mac 50000000…) = windows 98 so how about vista lets see 98 vs vista =vista fyew…

  17. Can you add a custom boot logo with this?

  18. Sorry y’all, I meant to ask the above question in the “GUI Version of QuickPwn” section. But since I already asked it here does anybody know if you can add a custom boot logo using QuickPwn?

    • Brad,

      You can’t add custom boot logos using Qucikpwn. You need a custom ipsw for that. You will need to use Pwnage or Winpwn if you want custom logos…..

  19. nothing to do with the subject but… Dock 3.1 is out with the sun burst thingy again!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s amazying now u can have 2 sun bursts! On each side of your iPhone/ipod touch!

  20. its off topic, but will there ever be landscape texting for the iphone?
    because i thought they would come out with something like that for 2.0 software but it never did :(

  21. it’s OUT!
    My Little Pwnie’s Dressage…
    From DevTeam

    “Here is the updated QuickPwn for Windows, wrapped by Poorlad’s GUI. It contains our new bundles for 2.0.2 and we’ve added support for version 2.0 devices which means you can QuickPwn and jailbreak the device if it is running 2.0, 2.0.1 or 2.0.2.”
