    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

    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.

      Hi everyone,

      I tried this method on a OTB 16GB 1.1.3 and everything went smoothly. I got the intaller app to be installed on the phone. I noticed that my Youtube will not connect! Its given me a “Cannot connect to YouTube” error. Anyone know how to fix this problem? And anyone else who used the ziphone program having the problem with YouTube?

      Here is what you should do:

      Remove your Turbosim, just leave your sim in the phone
      Restore via iTunes to 1.1.3
      After this, run ZiPhone(follow the instructions in the program!)
      Done.

      Hope this helps.

      Right, as you are on 1.1.2 ATM you should upgrade to 1.1.3 via iTunes.

      (I have been on soft upgrade 1.1.3 so I did a restore)

      This may be stupid maybe when you upgraded the phone lost it password settings.Try entering your password back in and rechecking the account settings. You didn't mention if you tried this yet or not

      So just to be clear, I have an AT&T 1.1.2 jailbroken phone. If I want to upgrade to 1.1.3 jailbroken, all I have to do is accept the annoying iTunes upgrade message and upgrade, then run this app?

      So if I hit the Restore button in iTunes, does that upgrade as well as setting back to the factory settings, or do I have to restore to factory settings, then upgrade, then run ziphone?

      Try the GUI version.

      Get it here:http://home.no/geezuzz/ZiPhoneGUI.exe

      Possibly there are some troubles when you try to jailbreak only.

      Try to do all 3 activate, jailbreak and unlock.

      Hope that helps you out.

      Just restore to Firmware 1.1.3 in iTunes.

      press the button restore, then iTunes asks you to look for new updates, press ok and it will restore.

      Then run ZiPhone.

      those who are stuck at "wait 45 seconds"
      are you using the ZiPhone 1.1 version?
      the one that puts your phone into restore mode for you?

      if you are, go find ZiPhone 1.0 instead and try that

      i've used 1.0 twice now and it took about a minute each time to jailbreak my phone

      1.1 i tried in between and it just got stuck at the same point everyone else keeps saying they are stuck at
