    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.

    Here's how to use the app:

    Tutorial for noobs:

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

    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

    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.

      How can you tell what boot loader you have on your iPhone?

      So now there's no reason for me not to go get the 16 GB iPhone....I guess this can jailbreak no matter what bootloader the phone has? I never could find a definite answer as to whether or not you could jailbreak the brand new phones coming out, but I guess this is it.

      If you already have a jailbroken one with Installer, you can install HWInfo. It's the best System Info app I've seen for the iPhone.

      does this literally work for otb phones or do they have to be jailbroken before doing this?

      So I have a question. I have the 3.9 bootloader. Could I restore my iPhone to 1.1.3 with an unaltered baseband, then use this method to jailbreak and activate, and then use anySIM 1.1.3 to unlock the phone, seeing how that is specifically for iphones with the 3.9 bootloader. Then the phone would be completely unlocked jailbroken, and activated. Just wondering if something like that would work.

      dude, you have to try it and let me know!
      I've been thinking about doing the same thing but i'm not manly enough to try it.

      currently trying it on my 16 gig buds!. will repost with results!


      worked perfectly after i fixed my command prompt to run from c not docs and settings so anyone who has a problem where command promt isnt opening do this:

      FOR JAILBREAKING AND ACTIVATING:::::
      run command prompt
      type cd\
      then drag the ziphone exe and put a space after and type -j and another space and -a. let it do the work and itll tell u when to put in recovery mode then its done after 45 sec.

      and for UNLOCK
      SAME CRAP BUT INSTEAD TYPE -u

      Guys, I can verify that the jailbreak works perfectly. Both my friend and I had AT&T, 1.1.3 stock phones, and it worked. The only slight problems I had were the main execution script failed message after using BossTool, moving the apps first. 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!!!!!

      my BL is 3.9, unlocked with "official unlocker via installer"
      if i do a "SHIFT+Restore" and select 1.1.3 firmware will this upgrade my BL to 4.6?
