This is a tutorial not for the faint at heart.
I’m going to show you step by step how to get the firmware version 2.0 5A240d onto your iPhone with WinPwn.

Let me start by explaining what pwning is. Pwning is making your iPhone totally independence from Apple’s vision on what the iPhone (and iPod Touch) can and cannot do. Currently it will allow you to restore to a jailbroken and unlocked state, and if you can figure it out – some extra cool stuff like Installer, Cydia, and other applications. You will eventually be able to backup your entire phone and restore to a state exactly the way you like it, restore straight to jailbroken state with installer, or even potentially install other OSes like linux (see iphonelinux.org) to your phone.

Ok back to the tutorial

Cmw released an update to his WinPwn beta.
It’s now possible to upload firmware 2.0 with winpwn.
The official notes from the developer are:

This release is not disabled in anyway. I no longer use QEMU and You will see some new features and will notice that it takes < 60 seconds to build and IPSW (at least on my machine). I have had reports that it has issues with Ipod 2.0225C but other then that it should work perfectly. If you find a bug please email me ( cmw@toc2rta.com ). This was built as a Debug bin and no code obfuscation was used. I will release full sources after we finish more beta tests

I would also like to note that this release would not be possible without the work of Squpix and Planetbeing who have helped develop and test winpwn.
