  • 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.

      hope this helps
      Edit: I tried jailbreaking/activating with ZiPhone again and got the same thing. Now it's time to try it manually. Either this particular phone doesn't like ZiPhone or something else is going on.

      Thanks theredrojo and AotW. This tip did the trick. Now the question is do I dare try ZiPhone again or do a manual activate and jailbreak.

      That was the kind of scare that takes a few years off your lifespan and I don't think I want that again.

      I would(and had) try it again.

      When its not working you can still do a manual activate and jailbreak.

      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.
      Thanks AotW, this link for the GUI worked for me.

      Upgraded from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 via iTunes.
      Ran the GUI, with the Active & Jailbreak option.

      I did notice no Installer icon, so I ran the GUI again just picking the Jailbreak and .... Whala, the Installer icon appears.

      I noticed if the Edge is not on yet then you will have youtube and mail problems so you might have to wait until the E shows up.

      I was wondering about this. Did you have 1.1.2 OTB or a 1.1.2 with old baseband and bootloader? The readme warns it only works with 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 OTB phones.

      As quoted from the first page:

      "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)."

      Me personally, I would upgrade it to 1.1.3 via iTunes & make sure first that you can use YouTube, Mail .... then run the ZiPhoneGUI.

      Sounds similar to what I just went through. Find ZiPhone 1.0, it should be linked at the beginning of this thread. You'll have to put the phone in recovery mode and restore 1.1.3 using iTunes. Then use ZiPhone the way I did it. I did the activate only first and then ran it again to do the jailbreak. It worked fine for me. Then go into Installer and install BSD Subsystem and get and run anySim.

      are you using the ZiPhone 1.1 version?
      the one that puts your phone into restore mode for you?

      if you are, go find ZiPhone 1.0 instead and try that

      i've used 1.0 twice now and it took about a minute each time to jailbreak my phone

      1.1 i tried in between and it just got stuck at the same point everyone else keeps saying they are stuck at
      Thanks worked great

      ZiPhone 2.0 is Out (Game Ower)

      ZiPhone v2.0 is finally OUT.
      In the command line version, you will find a new
      option "-b" be very careful with that!
      I take no responsability if you brick your phone!
      ZiPhone -b will downgrade bootloader from 4.6 to 3.9,
      flash 4.03.13_G baseband version and
      unlock it (in one shot!).
      It worked for me on 2 ootb 1.1.2 phones.
      It will work on 1.1.3 ootb phones too.
      Other options are unchanged.
      Do no forget to donate!
      The future of ZiPhone will depend on you also !
      If you can't code, or contribute in other ways,
      just donate.
      I think we won't need another version till the next firmware release
      Namaste!
      Peace out.
