  • ZiPhone - Unlock, Jailbreak, Activate, REPAIR your iPhone - NO DOWNGRADING REQUIRED!
    Zibri has released ZiPhone - an incredible tool for activating, jailbreaking, repairing, and unlocking all versions of iPhones (unlock only works on 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 OTB).

    Its incredibly easy to use, and both OS X and Windows versions are included in the download. Instructions from the readme:

    Connect a brand new phone to the dock.
    Run the program

    Well, you can also use a restored phone...
    Or a normal in use phone...
    Well... whatever !
    Windows download the app from the MMi downloads section (this version is packaged with the .exe gui), or if you're not an MMi member you can download it here or from MediaFire. Windows users you can get a gui here Copy to Ziphone folder and run. requirements : .Net framework 2.0 or above

    OS X download the app here, or if you're not an MMi member you can download it here.


    If you would like to compile the latest version the SVN is located: http://iphone-elite.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ZiPhone/

    Here's how to use the app:

    Tutorial for noobs:

    1. Put iPhone in Dock

    2. Copy all files under C:

    3. Start/Run --> write cmd --> Hit Enter

    4. Drag ziphone.exe into the cmd window and you will see this:

    C:ziphone.exe"

    5. type -j -a

    and it need to look like this:

    C:ziphone.exe" -j -a

    6. hit enter and follow directions! Directions looking like this:

    ZiPhone v1.0 by Zibri. http://zibree.blogspot.com
    Source code available at: http://www.iphone-elite.org

    Loading zibri.dat.
    Searching for iPhone...
    Please power off the iPhone, then hold the home button
    and connect to dock to enter recovery mode.
    Working...
    Please wait 45".
    Done!


    ( To put your iPhone in recovery mode, hold down sleep/wake + Home Button until you see the iTunes logo on your iPhone)

    7. Do the same thing with dragging ziphone.exe to cmd and write -u

    This looks like this:

    C:ziphone.exe" -u

    ZiPhone v1.0 by Zibri. http://zibree.blogspot.com
    Source code available at: http://www.iphone-elite.org

    Loading zibri.dat.
    Searching for iPhone...
    Working...
    Please wait 2'30".
    Done!
    I will have a better guide up soon in the Wiki, this is just a basic rewrite of a guide a user tossed up.

    Mad props to Zibri and the elite dev team for their incredible work on this!

    ******cash edit******

    This tool also can repair a phone with a "dead" baseband. To quote Zibri's blog

    To REPAIR a *DEAD* baseband, do THIS:

    Put the iphone in recovery mode (NOT DFU..normal recovery mode)

    Then run: ziphone -u

    And you will have back IMEI and WIFI.

    This procedure already worked on 3 phones.

      I have an iphone that was came with 1.0.2 (Boot loader 3.9). I had already upgraded to 1.1.2 (Activated, unlocked with ANYSIM 1.2, Jailbreaked). Decided to give 1.1.3 a go with ZiPhone. It could not have been easier.

      1. Downloaded the 1.1.3 restore image.
      2. Restored the iPhone using iTunes (I decided not to update because I wanted a fresh install)
      3. Followed the ZiPhone instructions with a -j -a (in windows XP)
      4. Installed and ran Anysim 1.3 on the iPhone (because I have a 3.9 Boot Loader)

      My iPhone is now Jailbroken, Unlocked and activated on 1.1.3 with baseband 4.03.13_G. Fandabbydosey!

      Thanks to the developers for all the hard work!

      I copied it to drive C: and followed the instructions dot my i's crossed the t's. And it worked. Thanks a million. However does my country code have something to do with the dialer because i try to dial and it just crashes. This is an OTB 1.1.2 . I am wondering if its because i am not in the U.S. that the dialer crashes. But other than that it dials when the contact exists.

      Thanks,

      To be honest...I'm stuck
      I downgraded from 1.1.3 to 1.1.1 following this tut http://http://www.modmyi.com/forums/...ad.php?t=30433 so now I got a 1.1.1 with a 4.6BL...figured what the hell, so I installed the package which ran find...said I had a unlock phone.
      Pop'ed the T-MO sim and it didn't work.
      Then I did the oktoprep 1.1.1 to upgarde to 1.1.2 but itunes only allows me to update to 1.1.3 unless I put the phone in restore mode.
      Do I just upgrade to 1.1.3 via itunes?

      And im in UK will i need the Iworld installed?

      Also..

      Would installer.app be available through ziphone?

      And whats the -u change imei part. Is that needed or only when the iphone displays a wrong imei 0049XXXXXXXXXXX ?
      Your iPHone should be connected at all time....remember the computer needs to read and places the files to the iPhone...if you take it off it won't work...and -u is for unlock...if you are using the command option ziphone -a -j -u for activation, jailbreak and unlock

      Use the GUI better...no commands needed

      If you upgrade, yes. If you have to restore for any reason, no.

      So i ran the program and it says it was succesful. Then i go to my screen and theres no installer. Also i opened up iBrickr and it says "free your phone" which means my phones not jailbroken, am i correct? Are you guys unlocking your phones also or are you just jailbreaking and activating?

Then after a frustrating restore and rejailbreak which didnt fix the problem, I restored again but from recovery mode, and now I'm on a fully fumctioning 1.1.3 JAILBROKEN!!!!!
      To use Bigboss after jealbreaking 1.1.3, you have to install BSD subsystem (the newest version).
