  • 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.

      IF you want to jailbreak at 1.1.2, you have to restore to 1.1.1 and run oktoprep from installer and then upgrade, not restore to 1.1.2 and run jailbreak for 1.1.2.
      But Ziphone 2.0 is working for 1.1.3, if you get the apple logo error or hang, just make sure you check verbose mode and it should be fine, I've done it like 5 times already.

      Whats the difference between the GUI and the exe.

      I'm using Windows Vista, which one should I use?

      Thanks.

      I think I figured it out, the GUI uses pictures.

      If am already an activated AT&T cust. do I still need to check the activate box?

      I have run into a big problem. My computer does not recognize my iPhone after I ran the ziphone.exe. It got stuck at 45 seconds and there was no activity for a long time. So I killed the process. Now when I run the program again its stuck at searching for iphone... and nothing happens. The itunes logo is there. Its looks like I have brick my iphone. Does anyone know what wrong did I do. Is there anyway I can restore my phone. Itune also does not recognise my phone.Please help.

      Also.. I want to go back to 1.1.2 so I can use customize but I like the google maps locate feature.... can I copy the google maps app from 1.1.3 and replace it on 1.1.2?

      Thanks

      Unzip and try to SSH this Youtube.app where your Youtube.app is located.
      (apps are located under /Applications)

      This is a copy of my Youtube.app and it works flawless!

      Try it.

      Truly unbelievable. I have a 1.1.2 OTB that has been jailbroken before but not currently. I ran "c:ziphone.exe -j -a -v" at cmd prompt and it was complete and jailbroken in less than 2 minutes.

      I checked all the apps for working condition including mail. Youtube is saying that cannot connect, but it connects anyway and still works. Something wrong there but I'll figure it out.

      Great Program.
