[Winpwn][Error 6] Massive problems for me
I downloaded winpwn and installed it (Removed 1.0 totally beforehand).
I 'upgraded" my phone 2.0 from itunes .. it goes thru .. everything is fine .. it's in factory state now.
i create a custom ipsw file .. winpwn saves it .. says it was succesfully created.
i hit pwner .. it asks me which file .. i point to the one it just created and it says it has pwned the the itunes .. now i can use DFU mode under itunes.
I try that .. itunes sees the phone .. i ask to restore it .. point to the file winpwn created .. itunes untangles the file and talking the phone .. comes back with 'error 6'
if i ask it to use the default factory file .. it goes through.
i fire winpwn again and ask it read the 'ipsw' file it had created .. it says "unknown file' .. I have done it twice .. both times winpwn says it created the file, but then won't read it. itunes will read the file but fail in loading it to the phone.
I can read the file .. used 7zip to unzip it .. and that doesn't complain.
Any help from anyone will be appreciated, it appears to me that i may not be selecting the right options in creating the ipsw file .. but there is so little to choose.
I have tried to create with or wihout bootloader changes but now luck.
[Error 6 problem] steps to correct.
had that problem too.
and here is what did..
First never update with factory firmware 2.0 from 1.1.4
there was a good guide about this.. but I could not find it.
go back to 1.1.4.
use winpwn to pwn your phone..
and only restore your custom 2.0 after..
never load factory 2.0 first..
I spent 5 hours to correct the problem now running on 2.0 and all is fine.
