WinPwn Released: Fixes iPwner Crashing issue and 16xx errors

WinPwn has just been released. If you were facing crashing issues with iPwner or 16xx errors then you you might want to check out the latest version as cnw, the iPhone Hacker credited for porting iPhone Dev Team’s Pwnage Tool 2.0 (Mac only) to Windows  claims that they have been fixed.

You can find all the details of WinPwn after the jump.

The initial release was affected by an issue that caused the iPwner component to crash. It appears that the issue has been resolved in the latest version.

WinPwn has also resolved the 16xx errors that iPhone Hacks reader, hms90832, had encountered.

Here are the instructions provided with the latest release:

  • 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.
  • 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”, ignore it.
  • If you already have service with AT&T do not activate or install Youtube Fix.

It also fixes the following issues:

  • Cydia/XP/Writing root FS bug.
  • Failed to remove ipsw directory after a ipswBuild failure.
  • iPwner now only accepts custom ipsws.
  • Remove 345 ipsw support. WinPwn only supports 347 2.0 ipsw’s.
  • Various other fixes.

Cnw is also planning to release the following features in the next release:

  • Parition resizer
  • Auto updater
  • DFU Helper function/Wizard mode

As always do remember, hacking your iPhone is at your own risk and don’t forget its always a good idea to backup your iPhone.
