QuickPwn GUI for 2.0.2 Firmware

We recently upgraded Brooke’s iPhone to 2.0.2 firmware. I’ve been waiting for the best way to jailbreak it for Windows. QuickPwn GUI is now availble for 2.0.2 firmware so I thought I would give it a shot. It’s very easy to use. You just follow the steps it gives you. This will jailbreak your iPhone but will not unlock the 3G yet. It will add Cydia and Installer without the need to restore your firmware. The Dev Team says the mac version is coming soon.

  2. Hi, first thanks for the software but i have couple of questions. i have a first generation Iphone (2G) and have 2.02 firmware loaded. i m trying to unlock the phone, do i go tru step steps with my old card or the new card i wanna use? second comand promt closes itself so i cant see if ends succesfully , but it asks me for the unlock code at end, so it means it is not unlocked ? thanks in advance..

  3. Heya..

    I Tryed ti jailbrake my new iphone 3g not so long ago with no luck all i keep getting is the connect too itunes thing come bak up with error message in itunes itself tryed a few times.. As its new im scare to brick it.. How likey is it i can do that with this new software and by the chance it did get bricked would it void warranty i bought from Carphonewarhouse an using it on O2

    Thanks for any help


    • Andy,

      It’s not likely that you can brick your phone using quickpwn. However, it is likely that if you did it would void any warranty. I would personally recommend that you wait for Winpwn 2.5 as it should be released in the next few days. I think it would be your safest bet, and what’s a couple days wait? Go to winpwn.com and check the site every day for the release. Good luck !!

    • Thanks for that scott will deffo take your advice and wait till 2.5 comes out an then giive it another bash…

      Thanks Again


  4. I know alot of ppl hate Ziphone, but i like the way it was made to jailbreak the iphone (HANDSFREE), one click and the software does the rest. I used quickpwn to jailbreak my buddy’s iphone last night and its pretty much 1 click. It took me back to when ppl first started jailbreaking the iphone: when you had to hold the power button down for 5 sec, then the home button for 10 sec, and you still got to have your timing down . (call me lazy for not wanting to hold two buttons). Now once all of this was done i didnt have a problem. My Iphone is still on firmware 1.1.4 (Ziphone jailbreak) and i havent had any problems with it so im waiting for them to update becuase there isnt alot of applications ported to 2.0 for me to upgrade.

  5. I updated to 2.0.1 last week on my 2G iphone from 1.1.4 using WinPwn. There are lots of benifits to being on the 2.0.x firmware (AppStore), but I was disappointed to see that almost all the 3rd party apps I had from Installer are not available to install anymore. There are lots to replace them with on the AppStore, but some of them aren’t as good as the ones we’ve had for over a year. This website has been great for learning everything to know about the iPhone, keep it up!

  6. Is the phone supposed to be detected as a new USB device every time its put into DFU mode properly in Windows XP?

  7. well i just had one question. My 2.0.1 1st gen iphone IS unlocked, i checked it with bootneuter. its also neutered, fakeblanked, and 3.9 version, and yet I cant get a SIM from another country to work on my iphone! is anyone else having the same problem?

    • Hi Bobby,

      I have the same problem! Now I cannot use my phone. I inserted the SIM and it is just show no signal. It didn’t say no service or sim error.

    • yea it makes me connect to itunes with the foreign SIM?? i dont get it..i thought 2.0.1 was supposed to unlock it. Kinda stupid. any way out?

  8. OK. Someone PLEASE HELP ME. I used this and now I think my phone might be bricked. I’m stuck at a screen showing ­ THIS.

    This is my story. I have an iPhone 3G and was running 2.0. I used QuickPwn to try and update to 2.0.2. I found out afterwards you have to do this first in iTunes. So after I was done with QuickPwn I tried to update using iTunes. And now I am stuck at the above screen. I try restoring and the same thing happens.

    • My phone App crashed and did a restore, during the process of restore I to notice that picture popped up for several seconds. Anyone has a clue as to what it is or how it got there ?

  9. Im concerned about this sentence on their blog page…”remember that the 2.0.2 update includes a baseband update for the 3G iPhone, so depending what your long term intentions are for the phone, update wisely,”…what exactly does this mean???! Also where do I find the 2.0.2 IPSW file on my comp? I looked in my Apple Folder and don’t see it? Thanx for your time!

    • I forgot to mention I am running 1.1.4 at the moment and have not gone to iTunes to update yet. Also should I save my 1.1.4 IPSW file(if I can find it) in case this doesnt work/

  10. Everyone … Just wait for the Winpwn 2.5

  11. I have a 1st Gen iPhone. I just upgraded to 2.0.2 using Quickpwn and the instructions on the Dev Team blog, and it worked smoothly. The interface on 2.0.2 seems alot faster, and generally seems more stable. Only possible problem I’ve encounter so far is my phone freezing when reciving an incoming call. This has only happened once so far (but never happened on 1.14) so I’m not overly concerned yet.
    Both App Store and Cydia absolutely rock. Talk about having the best of both worlds!

    • My phone froze too when I got a incoming call. Hope its just a minor issue. It happened just once thus far.

  12. I have a quick question regarding about QuickPwn. Rite now I have a jailbroken 16gb 3G iPhone on 2.01 Firmware. I want to upgrade to 2.02, but my question is if you can upgrade to 2.02 with QuickPwn without losing all my 3rd party apps. I’ve read in other comments that you first have to upgrade to 2.02 with iTunes, and then QuickPwn your iPhone, but can you upgrade with QuickPwn to 2.02 without losing 3rd party apps without using iTunes?

    And when WinPwn 2.5 comes out, will it be able to save my data and apps when I upgrade to 2.02?

  13. what is the fix for youtube, I get “you must first connect to itunes”

    • Search above for Tony’s post…
      QUOTE – Ok i found solution for my problem on hackintosh:

      “If you still have Winpwn installed goto
      /program files/winpwn/bundles/
      and copy
      to your desktop. Untar the archive.

      SFTP into you iPhone and go to

      replace the three files data_ark.plist, device_private_key.pem, device_public_key.pem on the iPhone with the three you find in the untared archive on you desktop (they are in var/root/Library/Lockdown/).

      You have to set permissions and owner to all the three files
      permissions: 0644
      owner: root
      group: wheel

      Delete the folder “pair_records” if it is in there. Restart the iPhone and you should be set – worked for me.”

      Hope it helps…


  14. Doug:

    I really need your help to get Youtube up & running in 2.0.2. Maybe, you can suggest a patch, especially for us rookies that do not have a clue on how to go about with what mdleers is suggesting. Although, I did give it a shot last night but two things didn’t go right for me:

    First, that untar bit for YouTubeActivation – mdleers talks about 3 replacement files – I found only one at /program files/winpwn/bundles/.

    Second, my group is set at ‘admin’- can’t change it to ‘wheel’.

    Ended up with a blank screen and then had to restore in iTunes and Quickpwn but still no Youtube.

    • The one file you saw, did it have a .tar extension ? If so the 3 files you need is in there. .just unzip the .tar file after you have it on your desktop.

    • Tony:

      Thanks :) I checked and found the 3 files. But what about group, which is set at admin. How do I change that to wheel?

    • When I did the utube fix it was already set to wheel with 0644.right click to open the file’s properties once it is in the iphone to double check.

  15. I’ve upgraded using quickpwn last night.
    The process run as mentioned below for me:
    – Before upgrading, i firstnote down my cydia apps, uninstalled them.
    – After that i’ve updated the firmware through itunes.
    – After the update, my phone was unlocked (because it was unlocked with bootneuter beore) but not jailbroken.
    – I’ve jailbroke it using quickpwn. took less than 10 minutes. After pwning, my device was jailbroken too.
    – all my appstore apps, contacts, notes, sms’s etc. were there. I re-installed cydia apps.

    note: I was unable to answer phonecalls. The slider was not sliding. I was just about to restore but an idea came to my mind. Ringtones. The problem was contacts with mp3 ringtones. I’ve ssh’ed into the phone and saw 2 different ringtones and 2 different applications folders. i’ve moved my ssh’ed apps from one folder to another and they appeared in the springboard. I’ve deleted the old app folder. I did the same to ringtone folder. Then i had to re-select ringtones for users. After that, i’ve deleted old ringtones folder. After deleting old ringtones folder, i had the ringtone and sms sounds but lost the keyboard, lock, voicemail, calender etc sounds. I’ve but the formerly deleted ringtones folder and all was ok. so don’t delete your ringtone folder even if you have 2 of them(with a different ending like ‘ringtonesylvc3). you can delete the old applications folder. i’ve deleted it and nothing bad happened.

  16. Finally made the move from jailbroken (ziphone) 1.1.4 to 2.0.2. The upgrade went smoothly, oddly enough my custom carrier logo created with MIM was still there after upgrade. QuickPwn worked like a charm the first try. Alas, there is a problem and I don’t know if it occured during the upgrade or during the pwnage. E-mail is now crashing after downloading to the inbox. I get the alert sound, but it just crashes back to Springboard. Anyone run in to this yet?

  17. I’m receiving the same issue that John Buckle had written about earlier. I was curious if anyone know how to possibly going about fixing this, or if I might have to restore the phone before I can make another call. I’ll copy and paste the problems that he had listed above earlier.

    “All seemed fine and I had cydia and installer on the phone. I actually managed to get winterboard on the phone. I was very happy with the new jailbreak. However, I spoke to soon. On closer inspection, I discovered problems using the keyboard. When I wanted to make a call from my contacts list, the keyboard would display and then after a couple of seconds it would revert back to the home screen again.
    I had full signal strength and did managed to make a call by using the call option in sms.

    I then uninstalled and then reinstalled the jailbreak again. The same problem arose again. Bummer…”

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  18. Quicpwn to 2.0.2 Mail settings there is an option to import sim contacts. I dont recall this beeing there in 1.1.4. Was it also available in 2.0, and 2.0.1 ? Is this like Isims, and SimPort ? I already sync with address book so cant test any more.

  19. I’m kinda having the same problem, downloaded last night all work well until now, cant dial out but I can call from contacts and receive calls. Any help?

  20. PwnageTool 2.0.3 for Mac OS X is now available…


  21. Hi,

    I used quickpwn to upgrade my 1.1.4 2 g phone. Everything went well but somehow I am unable to get network for my sim card on the phone. It is just showing NO SERVICE.

    Also I tried to restore it to 1.1.4 through itunes but it showed me an error

    Any suggestions?


    • Turn on wifi, run Cydia, download Bootnueter. Run it then it will unlock your phone.

    • Sorry, forgot to mention you may have to turn off your iphone after then turn it back on for the Bootnueter to work.

    • Coming from firmware 2.0.0 and up getting a restore back to 1.1.4 is a bit tricky. I cant find the instructions, but I know it is done with itunes 7.5 only. You cant use itunes 7.7 to restore back to 1.1.4. :( But your problem is an easy fix with bootnueter.

    • Bootnueter should fix your problem but before you run the program after installation, turn off your wifi and unplug your USB from iphone. When you run bootnueter, turn everything on and press FLASH.


    • thanks guys…will try it soon.
      i am sorry but i have no idea on bootnueter. could someone guide me on where to find it and how to go about it step by step
