  • 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.

      I might have missed it in this growing thread... I have a 1.1.1 jailbroken and unlocked (activated?) iPhone w/BL 3.9.

      Can I in fact use iTunes to RESTORE the phone and FULLY UPDATE to 1.1.3? Does that automatically update the BL to 4.6? I use FIDO in Canada, so I will want to Jailbreak/Unlock/Activate the phone.

      what would be the advantage of going to this if we are currently on a jailbroken 1.1.3-3 with the geohot unlock??

      Is it something worth restoring my 16gb iphone back to factory then running the program???

      I could REALLY use a hand here as I have wasted hours and can't figure this out.

      I have an older Iphone, was 1.1.1 OTB, 3.9 (not 4.6). I mistakenly ran this with the unlock command last night (don't need it as I have an ATT SIM). Since then, I can't get a wireless signal at all on the phone on my SIM (not when in activation mode even).

      Help!?!? I have no idea what to do. I have tried restoring, etc. Do I need to do a virginize or something more severe to get it back now? ANY help would be so appreciated.

      I have ATT but am on a discount FAN plan thru work so I still do need to use the activate command and the jailbreak (I do not activate thru ATT). I just tried restoring the phone to 1.1.3 and ziphone -a did NOT activate the phone . ziphone -a -j DID activate and jailbreak me, but I still have NO phone functions/carrier info or signal.

      What did I screw up!?!?!?

      I really could use a hand because I rarely see this problem mentioned or a solution.

      I' ve just unlocked my iPhone (1.1.2 OTB, BL 4.6, BB 4.02.13_G) after iTunes Upgrade to 1.1.3.
      That' s all right and now this is my configuration:

      Firmware 1.1.3
      Bootloader 4.6
      BaseBand 04.02.13_G

      It seems to be ready like a Dev Team 1.1.3 soft jailbreak, so I need Navizon GPS for using maps, and I need some fix.

      @martysams:
      no, because you have BL 3.9. There are ways to go 1.1.3 and unlock your phone, but it would mean going back to 1.1.1 first, and carry out a lot of steps (I did this, and it took me hours). I would wait a bit longer for an easy unlock for BL 3.9 phones if I were you.
      seems I was talking BS as 1BADRIDE so nicely pointed out. So you are lucky then!

      HEY GUYS!!!
      I just got the "connect to iTunes" image at my iPhone screen after have upgrade to 1.1.3 in iTunes and try to Do this after:
      - 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.

      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
