  • 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.

      Im going to try this when I get home

      My iPhone is OTB 1.1.2, obviously BL4.6, if I restore my phone to 1.1.3 ( it is JB via Nate True) would that be ok? I'd hate to sound n00bish, I'm just very curious, as I still have about 3.5 hours left of work...

      AFAIK, your bootloader will not change at all. Unless someone can create a BL downgrader app, which I am sure is easier said than done...

      OMG, this is the best tool ever! worked perfect.
      And for those of you who can't get installer on your phone, just run iBrickr, that worked for me. The original one, not the one for jailbreaking 1.1.3

      WoW! Oh freakin' hell - how can this be SO easy? 3min 15 sec to do?!!!
      Well it worked great on an OTB 112 on a mac.
      Just copy everything over to the home dir, then run ziphone from the terminal.

      Nope, you can just jailbreak is like me. All you have to do at the options section is put your phone into recovery mode, in your command prompt, type ziphone -j and then you should be good to go.

      ok actually for some reason what i did earlier left me without installer? so i just restored to 1.1.3 via itunes and then ran the program again with all the boxes checked this time (i decided it couldnt hurt to unlock it too) and now it worked like a charm. I am glad that there is an easier way. Downgrading was getting a little annoying. Thank you zibri and thank you to the entire dev team and all that have been helping us mod our precious iphones.

      original post:
      using the gui interface i was getting this as well, and then i decided to mess around a bit. i checked both jailbreak and activate (instead of just jailbreak as my phone is already activated) and then it worked

      well I just finish jailbreaking my OTB 16GB 1.13 iPhone that I just picked up tonight on Mac OS X 10.5.2

      After activating my phone and worrying about how my friend will activate my old 8GB i decided to try this jailbreak method out since I was unsuccessful after upgrading to 1.13.

      I copied the ZiPhone folder to my Home directory
      I then opened Terminal and type:
      cd ziphone {enter}
      ./ziphone -j {enter}

      About 5~10 seconds later it's done

      Ok, well I used it on XP, and I had some error because when you unpack it, the ziphone folder with the stuff is inside another ziphone folder. If you get the real folder onto your desktop, everything will work perfectly.

      If you open your Macintosh HD and then go into the Applications folder then the Utilities folder you'll find a program called Terminal. Double click on it and it'll be similar to a DOS or Command prompt on a PC.

      Type the commands that I posted earlier in my previous post and it should work for you as long as you have the ZiPhone folder that you downloaded and extracted in your Home directory (Username folder or Macintosh HD\Users\)

      Do 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.
