I tried pwning my iPod with WinPwn the 1ST try and I got it working perfectly! I think you guys are reading it wrong and don't know how to follow instructions because it's not that hard! And if you think your computer is not good enough then your wrong because the laptop I used was found in a dumpster! It only has 400mb of ram and it's a piece of $h*t. This is what I did: Make sure hidden folders and files are visible!!! (My Documents then click Tools > Folder Options... > View > Show hidden files and folders.) IDK about Vista. Make sure you're running on an administrator account!!! Make sure your iTunes is version 7.7!!!! 1. Close all applications on your computer. (even iTunes) 2. Open up WinPwn 220.127.116.11 with your iPod connected. Get it here >http://[PIRACY.rs].com/files/132205173/winpwn_18.104.22.168_Setup.zip.html 3. Click on "Browse .ipsw" and find your .ipsw from iTunes usually located at here for Windows XP C://Documents and Settings > TEMP > Application Data > Apple Computer > iTunes > iPod Software Updates and click on your .ipsw. For Windows Vista: C:\Users\'user'\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates. If nothings there then open up iTunes and put your iPod in the USB port or dock then click restore, once you've gone through all that your software should start downloading. Once it starts downloading then unplug your iPod. Once it's finished downloading close iTunes then click "Browse .ipsw" and locate your .ipsw. 4. Then click on "IPSW Builder". In here click on Install Cydia checkbox then if you want add custom logos or payloads. Once your done customizing click on "Build .ipsw". This takes a while and try not to do anything on your computer at this time just let it be. Hopefully if it was successful then it should have a dialog box saying something like .ipsw created (I forgot exactly what it said). If it wasn't successful than make sure all previous versions of Winpwn were completely uninstalled and reinstall 22.214.171.124. Then TRY again please just try again it works! 5. Then click on "iPwner" and go wait for it say "your iTunes has been pwned". Now open up iTunes and put you iPod into DFU mode and hold shift then click restore. Locate the custom firmware in C://Documents and Settings > TEMP > Application Data > cmw > winpwn > 126.96.36.199. It should be there. Hopefully no errors will occur! If none of this is working for you Press "CTRL + ALT + DEL" then abort all apple, ipod, and itunes applications then retry my tutorial.
