  • 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!

    http://zibree.blogspot.com/

    ******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.

      THe reason ziphone doesn't work on INTEL LEOPARD is because it needs an old version of MobileDevice.framework (same as iNdepdendence).

      Download the 7.4.2 version, backup your 7.6 version, copy 7.4.2 into your PrivateFrameworks folder (/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks) as "MobileDevice.framework" and then try ziphone again.

      i can't get it to work....fresh 1.1.3 restore on an ATT phone. says please wait 45 seconds, phone reboots, not jailbroken, no installer. what gives?
      Here it is...this is the GUI

      I dont know about that... every other thread says it unlocks/jailbreaks 1.1.3 and keeps the 04.02.13_g firmware.

      Did you do anything differently?


      edit: I think it has something to do with the osx side of things. Im gonna try again in windows.

      Same thing happens to me. i've tried twice.

      First time i used the command: ziphone.exe -j -a

      second i used the GUI and only did jailbreak. Both times says it worked, but nothing happens.

      Thank you! Everything worked fine after replacing MobileDevice.framework. Should I move my 7.6 copy back now that I am Jailbroken?

      Update: I figured out that I had to put 7.6 back to get iTunes to see my phone again.

      No problem! Glad you got it working. It should work with 112 & 113. I've decided to stay on 112 for now until more apps are compatible (although a lot are already. I'm just too busy at the mo to have to re-install all the apps I have on 112). So you can stay on 112 and use ziphone, or upgrade to 113 & use ziphone. (I haven't tested the upgrade to 113 via iTunes yet, but from what I can gather it should work.)

      ok i figured it out. Jailbreaking and activating keeps your firmware updated. 04.03.13_G. When you unlock it via ziphone, it downgrades your firmware to 04.02.13_G. There must be another method of unlocking a jailbroken 1.1.3 right?

      so, it put installer.app on the phone, but using programs such as iphonebrowser, idemocracy,iphonelist, etc, the file system looks like a jailed iphone. can I only manually transfer files to the phone via ssh with this version?

      I've tried it now with 2 different phones, both on 1.1.3, with no sucess. Does it matter what version of Itunes I have installed? On both phones I get success message, but phone has no installer. Also, the Edge network settings are messed up, have to go into network settings and reset to get edge back.
