  • 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.

      Hey there, maybe this has been answered before....
      if i unlock my jailbroken 1.1.2 with this, i put it in recovery mode and after the ziphone process it will just be unlocked with all my files and settings still on the phone?

      Hey Guys,

      So I've had an iPhone since day one... and I can't help but to notice that this method is quite popular. I've never "jailbroken" or "unlocked" my phone. So my question:I'm running 1.1.3, I plan on keeping my provider, although I do want to "jailbreak" for the allowing of 3rd party apps. All I want to know is where do i start? And if I go through the process of "jailbreaking" will all my features work? And if for some weird reason I no longer want to have a "jailbroken" phone will restoring it completely restore it?

      Thanks

      I just wanted to know if this is the best guide to jailbreak OTB 1.1.3. I will be purchasing an iphone by the end of the week. Should I jailbreak and activate it. Or activate first through itunes and then use ziphone to jailbreak. Please help! Much appreciated!

      Guys, what should I do?

      I currently have 1.1.3 - 4.3.13 -4.6BL: Jailbroken, Activated, & Unlocked by Official DevTeam upgrade & GeoUnlock.

      Do I gain anything by doing the ZiPhone method? What is the difference besides the fact that it is much simpler. Thank you

      Hold down the power button and home button at the same time until it reloads,
      you might have to restore your phone again. Make sure you are using itunes 7.5 or below, 7.6 will give you errors to restore, at least it gave them to me.

      Baseband 04.03.13_g
      Bootloader 4.6_M3S2

      I am currently on a jailbroken 1.1.3 via dev team official upgrade...

      Will restoring to 1.1.3 and using the ZiPhone method, give me any advantage?
      You Tube and Locate me work fine....

      Also.. I want to go back to 1.1.2 so I can use customize but I like the google maps locate feature.... can I copy the google maps app from 1.1.3 and replace it on 1.1.2?

      Thanks

      Hi,

      I jailbroke/unlocked my 1.1.2 OTB iPhone using ZiPhone. But when I try to update to 1.1.3 via iTunes it gets stuck at "Preparing iPhone for software update" after which I get the following error msg "The iPhone could not be updated. An unknown error occurred (1602)".
      What do I do now? Please help.
