  • 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

    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.

      I'm having trouble with installer (I think) I can't download practically any of the packages to install them. I keep getting the message " Package download failed: can't find the host" This includes the official 1.1.3 dev team upgrader. Wifi is operating and I've been able to download some of the other packages.
      Can someone help?
      THX
      By the way, I have a 1.1.2 otb jailbroken and unlocked. All feature working fine (you tube, wiFi, etc)

      Only question I have....I tried browsing the file system with this iPhoneBrowser program that uses the .NET framework....but it doesn't show the file system...only iTunes **** and picture folders...not the actual file system...

      Does this mean my phone isn't jailbroken??

      On the other hand, if I SSH into my phone, it shows the whole file system...so I'm confused :-(

      lol
      I have the same problem with another software called the iPhone PC Suite (now version 1.05 for v1.1.3), but it also need a patch called 1.1.3 iBrickr/pcsuite Fix available from the Source http://i-bloog.com/index.php

      I think it might also work for iphone browser too.

      BY upgrading the iphone pc suite to 1.05 and running the patch, I can see all the directory.

      iPhone PC suite has the advantage of connecting your iPhone to a PC without the need of a WiFi system. It is useful to transferring files between the iphone and pc. But not so versatile as the WinSCP, which can do a lot more command things.

      Hope it helps.

Then the phone would be completely unlocked jailbroken, and activated. Just wondering if something like that would work.
      I restored to 1.1.3 (clean slate ) also this was an original 1.0.2 upgraded to 1.1.3. Ran Ziphone checked activate and jailbreak. took about 2:00 mins. Works great. I have a week 34 phone with 3.9BL. No problems so far but i don't have to install anysim.

      good luck.

      Make sure you have the newest version of iTunes installed - plug phone in, let iTunes find it - then close iTunes - then run ZiPhone's software.

      I recently unlocked my phone with this software. But then I installed 3rd party apps and now my installer app is missing. I tried unlocking it again but it doesnt take it back to the original way it was. It still doesnt show installer app. It's still in there but I cant access the second page because I didnt install the customize app. How can I get it back? I dont know if I should restore with itunes because its a 1.1.2 phone and it will upgrade and restore to 1.1.3. How can I get installer app Back..ANYONE PLEASE HELP!

      Thanks

      What should i do when I used ZiPhone to activate, jailbreak, and unlock my iPhones 1.1.2, the phone is freezed and not working it appears only apple logo.

      Can you tell me how to fix this problem??

      use 2.3, work better and prefer in DOS command mode

      Change directory to file your save ziphone and un zihpone -d this will get to recover mode and ypou can restore your firmware to 1.1.3, I tried it many time with out hick-up

      OR you can hold power+round button until apple logo gone and only release the power button but still holding the round button until you see either black screen or white cable with itunes CD, this mean your phone is in recovery mode, now restore the FW as you wish, I chose 1.1.3

      Make sure you download the FW 1.1.3 frist

      when is done, in DOS run zphone -a -u -j and you good to go, take about 2-3 minutes

      IF you already activate with AT&T, you do not need -a

      Good luck
