  • 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.

      Kenneth,

      I think i can help. I had the same issue. except im running a 3.9, unlocked with IPSF. I don't think it matters how the phone is unlocked. Now with 1.1.3, the 1.1.3 baseband adds some more checks to see if a valid carrier-SIM is inserted. You are unlocked but 1.1.3 is not letting your sim work. To get around this issue: you need to...

      Put the Signal.app in your iPhone’s /Application directory (Signal.app is a directory too). Make sure signal.sh and igsm have executable rights (use your SFTP/SCP program or chmod u+x signal.sh && chmod u+x igsm). Signal.app can be found here. You have to restart your iPhone (or Springboard) in order to see the new app. You have to run Signal.app every time you boot your iPhone to get a signal because the 1.1.3 baseband adds some more checks to see if a valid carrier-SIM is inserted.

      Signal.app can be found here - http://www.trick77.com/downloads/

      It worked for me. I ssh'd the file to apps folder, restarted the phone, launched signal.app.. and about 10 sec later my signal showed back up.
      Im in Oulu, Finland, running a US unlocked 8GB iphone. Hope this helps.

      Does the Jailbreak add Installer.app to the Iphone on the ZIphone??

      And what about UK.. will i need Iworld installed if im in UK or will it be supported (As its released in UK under 02).

      And if no Installer... How do you go ahead into installing it

      Somehow, I have become the local iPhone expert in Moscow, at least among my friends and friends of friends. I want a t-shirt that says, "No, I will not fix your iPhone" :-) BTW all done without compensation.

      Anyhow, today I was brought an OOB 1.1.2 phone. I didn't believe, but given all the bs I have been thru fixing other people's phones, I thought, what the heck and gave it a try. In the office, no less. Followed the directions to a "t". All went as written! Prosto super!

      To Zibri and Geohot, thank you for giving me a free evening, without having to hack someone's phone the hard way, I mean simcard cloning and the whole ball of wax. Neither of you are here, but I am having a Jameson's in your honors! Now I can work on figuring out my new MacBook and enjoying the joys of OS X! BTW in case some of you didn't know 10.5.2 is out today (yesterday for us) and is something of an upgrade, check it out.

      Once again thanks fellas for the time!!!!! and of course all your efforts to bring this to us.

      Thanks for the advise. Just a few questions. Have downloaded signal.app but how do i get it into the iPhone's application directory??? Also, what is "SFTP/SCP program or chmod u+x signal.sh && chmod u+x igsm"??? Cheers, Kenneth, a Dane in Germany

      thank you guys
      You have to connect your phone with iTunes, then click the "Restore" button.
      After the restore is finished, just run Ziphone.

      This will upgrade your BB.

      Make sure to backup your stuff on your phone as a restore will erase everything on your phone.

      Hope this helps!

      not sure what OS you are using. On a mac, fugu is a great ftp program. for windows... look in the guides.

      install bsd subsystem and ssh on your iphone via installer then you need to SSH(using some kind of ftp program) to your iphone from your computer via wifi access your apps folder on the phone and drop the signal.app in the folder
