  • 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.

      you're a goddamned genius. thank you. I had to restore 11 freaking time, but as soon as i did this, it worked perfectly. we need more people like you here.

      Got a question that seemed to have not been answered directly...I have an OTB 1.1.1 with bootloader 3.9 but upgraded to 1.1.2 jailbroken. If I update to 1.1.3 via Itunes can I use ziphone to jailbreak my iphone and also have it install the installer app? Don't really care about the unlocking as i am an AT&T customer. Would everything still work the same as an OTB 1.1.2 with bootloader 4.6, other than the unlocking?

      Hi, I upgraded my 1.0.2 OTB iPhone to 1.1.3 then used the ZiPhone method to jailbreak/ activate my phone.

      However, I cannot upload any file including anySIM manually via wininstall/iBricker/iPhone Browser or iDemocracy.

      They realize my phone is connected and only show DCIM, iTune_Control, and Downloads under the root file.

      Is there a solution to this? My wifi is grayed out and my Edge is disable after the update. Even when I downgrade to a lower firmware my wifi is grayed out.

      Thank you,

      Can someone help?
      I did a restore to 1.1.3...ran the program and only choose jailbreak. Worked great. All of my stuff was there but now I can't get into email. I can't delete email accounts...I can but when I go back into settings they are back. Every time i open up mail it just closes out. Suggestions?

      This seriously has to be the most unnerving "45 minutes" ever. Is it supposed to be just the apple screen? Why couldn't they have put a progress dialougue in??

      I just downloaded the OS-X GUI version and am currently trying to jailbreak my 1.1.2 OTB iPhone. The utility/app has been running for over 20 mins without any noticeable results. The iphone has been displaying the itunes logo with the connection cable and on the Mac, the status bar of the GUI utility has been spinning for a while. Sporadically, itunes pops a message that a phone has been detected in recovery mode.

      Please advise what I should do and how long I should expect the process to take.

      Thanks in advance.

      Hi Ben, which method did you use - Windows CMD line, or the Mac GUI? I'm using the Mac GUI and for the past 90+ minutes, the iPhone display has shown the iTunes logo with the arrow and cable below it and I keep getting the following message on iTunes sporadically: iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes.

      How long has it been taking others to complete this process? Please advise - I'm hesitant to disconnect the iPhone - lest I screw up the jailbreak and update process!!!

      first restore to 1.1.3 to get clean cuz that 1.1.3 ipsw does that. if u enounter being unable to browse ur iphone with iphone browser go to installer and add ride4.org/shai.xml after that, refresh go to all packages and install something called afc somethin, its there, it will fix it after u download it and reboot

      Crap. My 1.1.1 -> restored via iTunes to 1.1.3. 3.9 BL.

      Ran ziphone with -a -j. I get:

      Loading zibri.dat.
      i386
      Searching for iPhone...
      Entering recovery mode.
      Working...
      Please wait 45".

      Then my phone reboots. Stays with just the Apple logo indefinitely. I can hard reboot the phone, or put it into recovery mode, but it will not boot.

      Restore back to 1.1.3 via iTunes. Try again -- still doesn't work.

      hey i had the same problem and spent hours trying to fix this and i finally found a solution. heres what you do. ssh into your iphone locate to var/root/library/ and click on the folder youtube activation. Delete this file and go back to installer on your iphone and download youtube activation from the unlocking tools. reboot your phone and it should work!

      I used the http://iphone.unlock.no/ GUI with no issues worked the best. Before that I restored twice.

      I used Ziphone to jailbreak 1.1.3 worked fine for me no youtube prob. But I was reading over on iclarified that if your getting the apple logo screen indefinitely to use Ziphone 1.0 and not the newest 1.1 as it didnt have that issue. Id try that to see if it works for u also theres guides on iclarified as well, also the link to Ziphone 1.0 instead of 1.1 is there. Hope this helps you out some.
