  • Ziphone2.0 OS X gui + Windows gui = Easy jailbreak unlock and activate iphones
    Sorry about that, hrm the last version that we released our "testers" lied and never actually tested it

    I am happy to introduce the OS X gui for Ziphone!!!!!!! (working)


    we don't claim any credit for the inner workings of this, we have just added a OS X gui wrapper to ZiPhone2.0 by Zibri

    This jailbreaks any iphone with 1.1.3 firmware. It will unlock and activate 1.1.3 iphones with the 4.6 bootloader (1.1.2 and 1.1.3 OTB iphones). Very easy, one-click solution - couldn't be easier!

    This works on Apple OS X (Intel + PPC). This is Leopard only right now, we are working on Tiger compatibility.

    Features:

    For 4.6 Bootloader (iPhone's that came with 1.1.2 or 1.1.3 out of the box):
    • Unlocks your iPhone
    • Jailbreaks your iPhone
    • Activates your iPhone
    • Repairs your iPhone
    For 3.9 Bootloader (iPhone's that came with 1.1.1 or less out of the box):
    • Jailbreaks your iPhone
    • Activates your iPhone

    Download Me (non-member mirror)



    Windows users grab a Windows GUI version here --- nonmember mirror here.

    thanks Zibri for this jailbreak unlocking activation solution

      Im at 1.1.3 using the Devteam jailbreak through the installer app.
      I have to downgrade to 1.1.1 and then upgrade to 1.1.3 using iTunes right?
      And then I can use the ZiPhone?

      Im using OS 10.5.2

      This is the meanest jailbreak ever. Just last week i used Dev's Team jailbreak (soft upgrade) and was kinda satisifed with the end result ( with google locator not working unless i ran navizon once). After reading this post I simply went ahead and restored my Iphone to 1.1.3 using Itunes. It asked me if I want to backup and then after downloading the latest firmware it restored my backup minus Installer of course. I activated using Itunes since I am on AT&T. Ran the Ziphone Gui by just selecting Jailbreak and voila everything back to normal with the so familiar Installer sitting on my home screen. Kudos to the Zibri Team.

      FYI .. I ran this on my Intel Macbook with the 10.5.2 update (if this really matters) with the latest Itunes.

      no, as long as you follow the directions, there should be no risk of bricking it.

      Good on you for being the test subject. A couple questions:

      -which version of itunes were you running
      -what platform are you on (PC/MAC)
      -did you run ziphone from the command line or from the GUI?
      -any issues with WIFI or bluetooth
      -Does the locate me function in google maps work?

      Thanks for the help. I am running a 1.1.1 OTB jailbroken/unlocked phone

      1) I used (what I think is the latest version of iTunes) v7.6
      2) I am on a PC using Vista Home Premium (although I would expect results to be the same on any OS as long as you use the same, Ziphone 2.0 GUI)
      3) I ran using Ziphone 2.0 GUI (downloaded from his blog)
      4) Yes! It works (I was happy about this!) No more having to use 'Locate Me'

      hope that helps -- hit me up with anything else ya need!

      edit: also just a note (and i am not sure how important this is -- but will also edit my original post to include it) AFTER the upgrade to 1.1.3, I then closed iTunes before running Ziphone. Once i began ziphone, it automatically opened iTunes again and said it detected the iPhone in recovery mode and that the iPhone must be restored. I SIMPLY IGNORED THIS BOX UNTIL ZIPHONE 2.0 HAD FINISHED RUNNING (important!) and once it finished, the iPhone rebooted and that box went away!

      my question is can i restore my iphone via itunes to 1.1.3 > then use Ziphone to jailbreak and activate it > then use anysim1.3 to unlock it?
      i'm using OSX 10.5.2
      you could, but do not need to. follow my instructions (on page 8 of this thread) all you need to do (in a nutshell) is restore your phone to 1.1.3 in iTunes (back up data first) and then run Ziphone 2.0 (MUST be version 2.0 for BL 3.9!!!) and then select -U, -A, -J, AND -V (also important!) and let it run.. you will then have a fresh 1.1.3 iphone ready to go with the installer.app sitting on your home screen

      Unlock / Activate / Jailbreak a 113 iPhone

      Worked great for me, on a Day One; 8GB; BL3.9 iPhone. And, everything is working too... YouTube; Maps; Locate Me; Mail; Edge (using T-Mobile); Telephone; everything.

      Big thanks to Poetic for putting this together!

      My story could help someone!!!

      I had my iphone with 1.1.3 softupgrade official dev team 1.1.3-3 unlocked from 1.1.2 unlocked and restored to 1.1.3 tried ZiPhone and didnt work, tried independence 1.4.2 beta and jailbreak worked but not sim unlock.


      I downgraded from 1.1.3 to 1.1.1 took it out of restore mode with independence ( took a few times to restore until it worked) and did jailbreakme.com after that i downgraded the baseband with the source http://i.unlock.no/ and did this:

      Downgrade the baseband firmware:

      Set Settings → General → Auto Lock → Never
      Start Installer and install BSD SubSystem found in System Category.
      Go to Sources and tap edit and add http://i.unlock.no/
      Now install "Baseband Downgrader" found in Unlocking Tools category. This will take around 5 minutes.
      When done, restore your phone to get 1.1.1 firmware reinstalled.
      When phone have been restored, you can Activate and unlock as normal.

      after that I upgraded directly to 1.1.3 via itunes (holding alt/option).

      ran Ziphone jailbrak, activation and unlocked and after 1 to 2 min i was unlocked and jailbroken.

      Everything worked (mail, you tube, sms, contact syncing) EVERYTHING!!!!!!!

      I have been unlocking iphones since 1.0.2 and everytime i figure my way to work things out. Thanks god!!!!!

      Thanks for everyone that has posted things that have helped me achive a 1.1.3 unlocked BL 3.9!!!!!!

      When i tried to run anysim 1.1.3 there was no progress bar - nothing happened until i quit back to the home screen. No anysim unlock

      I then installed BSD subsystem 2.1 (and the fix), set auto-lock to never, restarted and ran anysim 1.1.3 and I now have an original bootloader 3.9 jailbroken and unlocked 1.1.3 iphone!

      Just thought i'd share this in case anyone else was having a similar problem.

      Look everytime i reflash the baseband the sound goes to a minimum vol and to hear it you have to get you ear together with the iphone speaker. so what i did was i turned off the iphone normaly and turn back on and problem solved. thry this and not a hard reset!!!! see if it works you wount loose anything!!!!

      I was home by 6pm today... between trying everyother method and waiting for itunes to downgrade and restoring my phone a million times... little breaks for food here and there, your method was the only one to work for me.

      Thank you soo much. At about 12:30am - I greatly appreciate it

      After losing my unlocked 1.1.1 and getting stuck with this 1.1.3, I feel whole again!

      A quick tip... if you pull the phone right out of the box or restore to 1.1.3 you have to connect the phone to the computer and open itunes first until the phone is recognized. Then quit iTunes and run ZiPhone.

      If you just plug it in out of the box without running itunes first Ziphone will run for a few seconds and say "Done"

      Yeah but thats not what Im talking about. If you ever have to do a hard reset you will lose sound. So you can NEVER hard reset your phone!

      I figured out that it has to do with OPENSSH or BSD Subsystem, because if you jailbreak, then hard reset you still have sound but once you install those programs and hard reset you NO LONGER HAVE SOUND. So it has something to do with them. Maybe someone needs to update them so that they work with this new jailbreak. But this is a major flaw. You need to be able to have openssh, hard reset your phone if needed and still have sound. I hope someone fixes this soon cause currently the only way to get sound back after a hard reset is to restore the whole phone, rejailbreak and reinstall everything.
