PWN your iPhone from a Windows machine – PwnageTool available for Windows users

All you Windows-using iPhoners out there can join the Pwnage club with the release of winpwn. Just like the Mac-only PwnageTool released by the iPhone Dev Team, winpwn allows you to “pwn” your iPhone using your Windows machine.

Pwn-ing your iPhone requires that you build a custom IPSW (firmware/OS) bundle and upload it to your iPhone. Once the IPSW is built, you can “pwn” your iPhone by making it accept this un-sanctioned firmware. Uploading a custom OS to your iPhone allows you force iTunes to restore your iPhone with third-party applications already installed and unlocked/activated for use with any GSM carrier. That means you can build iPhone OS files that are pre-jailbroken, saving you the time and (minor) hassle of jailbreaking, unlocking, activating and installing third-party applications on your iPhone.
