WinPwn Beta has been released for the iPod Touch. For those of you remember the PwnageTool that was released for mac that I wrote about two weeks ago, this is quite similar.

I have posted the download links for everything that you need to give this a try below. Just remember, this is a beta version and it is likely to be somewhat unstable.

For those who want to know more about what WinPwn is click here to read my post about the PwnageTool, which is virtually the same thing.

WARNING THIS IS ONLY FOR BETA TESTERS AND COULD CAUSE YOU TO RESTORE YOUR IPHONE/ITOUCH LOSING DATA

This is winpwn-0.99.1.8BETA. I have disabled 2.0+ support since it’s still buggy. Hopefully with people beta testing i will get all the bugs worked out within a few days and you will get a final release including 2.0+ support. You WILL be able to flash custom ipsw’s made with mac pwnage if you wish to upgrade to 2.0 and can’t wait for final winpwn. For now i have also disabled most
of the custom options including the applications (installer is still there) and the unlock base band features. Once i’m happy it’s stable i will enable those features for testing. I will post a more detailed breakdown of how it works (YES THAT IS QEMU) and why i choose to use qemu. You will require the iTunesMobileDevice.dll and you will have to put it inside the winpwn program files dir.
iBooter support has been disabled since i haven’t tested it yet. So you are stuck with iTunes for beta release. NOTE: YOU MAY NEED TO USE REGULAR RECOVERY MODE MANUALLY IF WINPWN DOESNT DO IT ITSELF.
