Hey everyone, just like to let you know how i managed to get winpwn to pwn my ipod touch. After a DAY of trying to get it to work, i followed these steps. 1) kill ALL apple related processes (that includes ones such as 'applemobiledevice' and 'ipodservice' 2) Run winpwn, choosing to install EVERYTHING: installer, cydia and youtube fix. no custom payloads, boot screens, restore screens. i did NOT change the root partition size 3) Run iPwner on your newly created firmware 4) Plug in your ipod (itunes will NOT come up) 5) DFU your ipod. this is best done by holding both the home and power buttons for around 10 secconds, then taking of the power button (so only the home button is held) until you hear the new device sound in windows 6) open itunes and shift-restore with your new firmware EDIT: this seems to be resolving some issues: thanks, piratetom95 hope that helps guys ------------------double post merged------------------has this helped anybody or was i simply lucky?
