  • 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.

      Hi,

      I have a 1.1.2 OTB jailbroken & unlocked after running ZiPhone. Now if I upgrade to 1.1.3 via iTunes will my phone stay jailbroken/unlocked or will I need to run ZiPhone again.

      Thanx.

      You will have to run ZiPhone again after the iTunes upgrade.

      Now I'm confused , there was a message from Poetic Folly putting a hold on the down load then a message saying it only worked with OTB 112&113. I read the posts here and it seems folks have been successful with other than OTB. Poetic Folly if you see this could you clarify.

      What he meant is that the unlock feature of ZiPhone only works for 1.1.2& 1.1.3 OTB.

      Well, what should I do now? Yes this is my first post here and I probably should have waited, but &*^* happens and it jsut did for me. I did the update to 1.1.3 through iTunes from 1.1.1. I don't know the full history on this phone so I don't know if it's 1.1.1 OTB.

      The phone was ok after the update and I loaded ZiPhone 1.0 to do the jailbreak/activate. Now my phone just sits at the Apple logo. Nothing is happening. I've done a reset and it still sits at the logo. Did I just fry my phone? iBrickr doesn't see the phone now so I don't know what to do to recover from this.

      Try to restore to 1.1.3 than try to run the newer version of ZiPhone.

      Have you upgraded to 1.1.3 or restored?

      I had restored my OTB 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 and have no problems with youtube.

      Have you only jailbroken your 16gig or have you activated and unlocked it too?

      I can't do anything with my phone now. iTunes won't see it. iBrickr doesn't see it. I can't even get it into recovery mode. I think I'm screwed. WHen I hold the sleep and wake buttons nothing happens. Doing the recovery of holding home with it turned off does nothing.

      Any thoughts?

      connect it to the dock and make sure the cable is plugged into the computer and then try to put it into recovery mode.

      hope this helps

      Dont worry,

      I had the same situation before with my phone.

      Try to get it into recovery mode, should work out somehow.
      I had to hold both buttons on the phone for approx. 3 min before anything happened the last time I messed it up...

      Then try the whole procedure again.
