I know this is another pwnage thread but this time I want to share how I got mine to work. I tried xwinpwn , xpwn , and the new winpwn 2.0 and none of them work for me at first. I kept getting a error code like everybody else. Ok, when I tried to use winpwn 2.0 when it says find the ipsw file , I notice that when I located the file I saw that winpwn 2.0 says that the file was unknown. Now if you read the instructions under help it will tell you that winpwn will read the ipsw file . So the file that I had was corrupted or something. I download that file from somewhere here on the forum the day 2.0 came out on july 11. So I deleted that ipsw file and found the 2.0 ipsw file on my computer. THe one I paid for. It was under c:/users/my name/appdata/roaming/apple computer/itunes. ( Just type in search Apple Computer in the start menu , and you will find it ) . Ok , now I loaded this file in winpwn 2.0 and this time it was read correctly , but still winpwn 2.0 didn't load or build the custom ipsw for me. So I figured that if winpwn 2.0 said that the ipsw file I had was a good one , then why not try it with xWinPwn again. I follow the steps in xwinpwn and everything works the way it said it would. So my point of this thread is that maybe people trying to pwn the ipods have bad files . Try using your original ipsw file located somewhere on your computer. I have a custom ipsw file and is it illegal to post it here for everybody to use , or is it against the forum rules ?
