  • 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.

      Anyone know how to help me run ziphone?

      Running a G4 PPC, OSX.
      I had that too, but I realized it is because the folder & the app is named the same (amongst other things).
      So I did this:
      - connect iphone
      - itunes will launch. Wait till its done then quit itunes
      - run Activity Monitor and quit iTunes Helper
      - copy content of folder to your home dir
      - open terminal
      - type chmod 777 zibri.dat
      - type ./ziphone -j -a
      - wait for 45 sec
      - type ./ziphone -u
      - wait 2m30sec
      - run iworld from installer for other country fixes
      - run bosstool from installer to move file, etc.

      I've run both the command line version and the GUI version, for a total of 4 times, and still have no installer app. I've also tired both ziphone -j -a, and ziphone -j -a -u. Any ideas?

      - run iworld from installer for other country fixes
      - run bosstool from installer to move file, etc.

      The only thing the terminal is saying is:

      Welcome to Darwin!
      Matz-Lornui-Almgren:~ matzalmgren$ chmod 777 zibri.dat
      chmod: zibri.dat: No such file or directory
      Matz-Lornui-Almgren:~ matzalmgren$ ./ziphone -j -a
      -bash: ./ziphone: No such file or directory
      Matz-Lornui-Almgren:~ matzalmgren$ ./ziphone -u
      -bash: ./ziphone: No such file or directory
      Matz-Lornui-Almgren:~ matzalmgren$

      What to do????? PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZ heeeeeeeeeelp!!!
      You need to copy the CONTENTS of the ziphone folder to your home directory, not the folder with the contents. Reason for that is that the folder and the app has the same name, hence that prompt in terminal.
      Are you copying the files to your home directory? That's the directory with your user name (and the little house icon in the side bar)
      eg. Macintosh HD > Users > [yourusername]

      why does this downgrade the firmware? I thought the point of this was to have the latest bootloader and firmware unlocked?

      I am trying to use ZiPhone with OSX. When I run the ./ziphone -j command I receive the message "Bus error". I saw that someone else had this problem also, but I have not seen any solution posted. Any ideas?
