    Hey guys. I just want to be clear on something regarding regarding WinPwn.

    Once my iPod is PWNED and I create my custom firmware I do NOT have to pwn my iPod again, is that correct?

    So after I PWN and create my custom firmware, let's say I want to create a different custom firmware. All I need to do is load up the Apple 1.1.4 firmware, and then click on IPSW builder and create a new custom firmware.

    Do I understand this correctly?

    I am never re-pwning my iPod or iPhone after it has already been PWNED?

    You can bounce between 1.1.4 and 2.0 and go back all you want without re-pwning. Your musice and everything will be erased though.

    Once you pwn your ipod it will stay pwned till you restore with itunes ipsw or non custom ipsw after you pwn make your firmware then go into itunes hold shift click restore then select your custom fw

    Yes I did mean that if I do not restore and simply want to create new custom firmware I do not have to re-PWN.

    Brilliant..thank you.

    So to reiterate because I was not clear in my first post (and also because I am still a bit unclear) , once I PWN and create custom firmware, I can create as many custom firmwares as I wish without having to restore each time (with iTunes ipsw), PWN and then restore again with the custom firmware.

    Once PWNED, I can create as many custom firmwares as I wish and simply restore with that without PWNING each time?

    Is that right?

    PWNING is a modification to the bootloader of the ipod/iphone. Every CUSTOM ipsw is pre-pwned during the build process (the bootloader is modified in the same way as during the pwn process).
    So restoring to a CUSTOM ipsw keeps your device in pwned state. Only restoring to an APPLE original ipsw un-pwns your device since the modified bootloader is replaced by the stock one.
