    Default [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.

    I forgot to mention .. I was using Vista on intel platform.
    Will try Xp now and see if it's any better.

    wrong.
    if you are running winpwn again, you need to point to the original apple ipsw so it can rebuild a new ipsw.

    Regarding the dfu issue. Read my post here:

    I have the same problem. I make the Custom IPSW, I pwn iTunes, I shift click restore and select my custom firmware. it loads. Error 6.

    I only check Install Cydia. Since I have legit ATT service, All i need is the jailbreak.

    Ive tried the thing above with xPwn and it doesnt work.

    Ive redone this like 20 times. and wont work. Moving back to unjailbroken for now.

    I don't think you understood what i had written.

    Winpwn can read the original "ipsw" file .. and it creates a custom ipsw file.
    But if you ask winpwn to open the custom ipwn file .. it can't, it says "Unrecoginzed file", Itune has no problem opening it but has problem loading it to the phone.
    That's all I was trying to point out.

    Default [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.
    but basically,


    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.

    i can;t even go back to 1.1.4 (i am on 2.0 official fw). whenever i try going back it gives me an unknown error (20).

    I can install a custom 2.0 firmware with out Cydia just fine (some times), but I can't get a custom firmware with Cydia to work. Seeing as how I have T-mobile, I need it for to get EDGE to work.

    Every time I try to restore, it gets almost all the way to the end, and gives me Unknown Error (6).

    I'm about to lose my damn mind. I just want 2.0 with edge...

    I have a 2G Iphone, using Vista 64-bit, BTW.
