How I WinPwned to 2.0.1

2.0.1[Disclaimer: still playing with Flock, can’t preview posts while doing this, so pic location may be a little crazy]

Ok, so it was kind of a long road for me this time. It’s been a lot of shouting and cursing, but I figured I’d blog about it real quick so others might have it a bit easier.

Here’s how I went about upgrading the first time. I downloaded WinPwn 2.0.0.4, the 2.0.1 firmware, as well as the bootloaders (3.9 and 4.6). I followed the instructions at iClarified just like I did last time, put the iPhone in DFU mode, and utterly failed. Phailed. Flailed. The problem here was that iTunes refused to recognize the firmware I was making and would give me an error saying “iPhone “iPhone” could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (6″. There are a lot of posts about this everywhere, but there were a few people here and there who claimed they were successful, so how’d they do it?


I won’t beat around the bush here: they used the new Partition Resizer tab in WinPwn and set it to something more than the default 500 MB. I didn’t know how much this would affect me so I just set it to 600 MB, but I’ve read people putting in as much as 1000. In any case, this was the key to my being able to upgrade. I’d tried for hours and hours re-downloading, re-pwning, restoring, and regurgitating. I’m going to sleep now while my music syncs.

Good night! Hope you folks have better luck!
