- Upgrade to iTunes 7.7 and download the following files: WinPWN 220.127.116.11 , Firmware 2.0 (I think this is for the iPhone, I couldn't make it work on my iPod Touch. I used this instead for my Touch), 3.9BL and 4.6BL files (the last two files are needed for the iPhone).
- Run WinPWN and open the 2.0 IPSW file.
- Click IPSW builder and select the Applications you want to install.
- Go to Advanced and load the 3.9BL and 4.6BL files you downloaded.
- Click Build .ipsw at the bottom when you're done (this will take a while).
- Once it's finished, click the iPwner button in the Main Menu and select the customized IPSW you just created. If you’re successful, a messge informing you iTunes has been pawned will be displayed.
- Connect your iPhone/iPod Touch to your PC and put it into DFU mode.
- Hold down SHIFT and click restore.
- Select the IPSW file you just created and you’re done.
Remember the ultra-portable MSI Wind we reported earlier this year? Well, it’s now available at PC Corner with other variants expected to arrive at the end of the month. There’s also a bundle of configurations to choose from so you can have your tasty Wind built to your own preference and budget.
The most affordable variant comes with a measly 512MB RAM, 80GB HDD and no OS is priced at P 23,999.00. The most expensive one tops of at P 31,999.00, and features 2GB RAM, 320GB HDD and Windows XP Home with SP3 as its OS. Standard features you can expect from each model include an Intel Atom processor, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, built-in webcam and a modest 10-inch widescreen display.
It’s definitely not as cheap as the current Eee PC crop available now, but it does offer more flexibility and choices with regards to its components. As for performance, we’ll have to wait and see until we get our hands on a demo unit.
