  • [Release] iPlus 2.0b for iPhone Jailbreaking | Activation | Unlocking
    PF EDIT: Guide is up and ready here!

    iPlus just got better with the latest release from ipluspwns.com. iPlus is quickly becoming the definitive tool for unlocking, jailbreak and activation of the iPhone. If you aren't already familiar with iPlus you need to check it out. Why choose iPlus? iPlus uses BL 3.9FakeBlank for bootloader downgrading. This means that the process is fully reversible (unlike some other tools), giving you the peace of mind that you can go back to where you started if you feel the need!



    Features of iPlus 2.0b include:
    • 1-Unlock and, if required, automatically downgrade the bootloader from 4.6 to 3.9FakeBlank
    • 2-Jailbreak
    • 3-Activate
    • 4-Install AFC2
    • 5-Add the following packages:
    • Installer
    • Community Sources
    • BSD subsystem
    • OpenSSH
    • VT-100

    And even more:
    • BSD Fix (backspace)
    • VT100 Fix (can't login)
    • Summerboard themes directory fix (installation issues)
    • Relocates Fonts and Ringtones (Allows for more than 120MB free for Apps!)
    • Customizable payloads!

    This great release has many bug fixes including:
    • Unlock/downgrade strategy rework: Now safer than ever!
    • New Interface on the iPhone (using iPipe from MCA)
    • Fix for the "Repair Needed" problem reported by some users
    • iPlus will always reboot twice (and not 2 or 3 times)
    • Pass 2 visual feedback. Now users know what is going on
    • PC/Mac program will not end until everything is really done
    • Support for PPC
    • Better error handling
    • Empty payloads - just jailbreak
    • No need to install libreadline on MacOS X

    Scared of a non GUI program? Don't be we'll have guides up very soon to show you how easy it is to mod your iPhone. For those of you that are still hesitant by a non GUI program don't worry! The next release of iPlus will include both a GUI and iTouch support.

      There are several differences between ZiPhone and iPlus but the most significant ones are:

      Key differences regarding bootloader:

      The following applies to phones with 4.6 boot loader

      Ziphone: downgrades the bootloader to 3.9 OTB (irreversible by sw)
      iPlus: downgrades the bootloader to 3.9 FakeBlank (you can go back to 4.6
      or something else at any time using software tools)

      Ziphone: downgrades the bootloader when its running from the ramDISK.
      iPlus: downgrades the bootloader outside the ramDISK.

      ramDISK is unstable.

      Note that bootloader downgrade is a tricky operation. If anything goes wrong during the process you have a good chance to end up with a bricked phone.


      If you want more info about ramdisk and how iPlus works read "Something I Learned During iLiberty Development": http://george.zjlotto.com/

      i need to upgrade 2 phones from 1.1.1 to 1.1.4 and have them work with tmobile
      one has BL3.9
      and the other has BL4.6

      what is the best way to do that...

      just simply update the phones with itunes then use this program to go from there?

      Or maybe you can just double click the window batch file and it looks like it starts up the program also... ?



      Check your baseband (settings > general > about > modem firmware). If this is not 4.03 or 4.04 then the locate me feature won't work. Older versions of ziphone downgraded the baseband to 4.02 in order to complete the unlocking process.

      In the end you'll most likely need to RESTORE to 1.1.4 again and use iPlus, iLiberty, or ziphone 2.5 to jailbreak again.
      make sure you type iplus -u. putting in the [] will not work. some people have double clicked on the batch file and it does start to run but i don't believe the process finishes. it has to be done through terminal.

      i used an earlier version, iplus 1.2 to jailbreak/activate/unlock myphone and everything worked perfect. no problems and took no more than 3 minutes.

      someone mentioned how this is different from ziphone. when unlocking with ziphone it downgrades your BL to 3.9 from 4.6 (if that's where your phone is) PERMANENTLY whereas iPlus downgrades a 4.6BL to a 3.9 fake bootloader so if you want to upgrade it later, you can.

      On a MAC:
      1 - Open a shell
      2 - "cd" to the directory where you've unziped iPlus
      3 - ./iplus or ./iplus -u

      On Windows:
      1 - Open a Command Prompt
      2 - "cd" to the directory where you've unziped iPlus
      3 - iplus or iplus -u


      Is it that difficult?
      Why do you need a GUI for something so simple that has only one option to choose?

      I have BL 4.6. So if I jailbreak it won't change it correct. Also you only need to use the "activate" feature is when you have a new phone out of the box correct?

      Last question i'm running 1.1.2 right now so i can use iPlus to go to 1.1.4 jailbroken and will i have to reinstall all my apps again. Is there a way to back up my iphone so i don't have to go in install everything over agin?

      Sorry about the noobish questions.

      By the way i am running a Prepaid AT&T SIM NOT the regular AT&T SIM that was pre-installed in the iphone

      As it explains you are supposed to use the command line. There are just 2 options: iplus -u (for non AT&T) and iplus -j (for AT&T jailbreak only). Why do you need a GUI? Just follow the guide at the top of the thread. If you still don't feel comfortable then back away. Also, if your bootloader was on 4.6 and it's been downgraded to 3.9 with zphone then you are stuck on 3.9...

      Yes, restore both phones to 1.1.4 and use iPlus to do dirty work.

      The 3.9 BL phone will remain with the same 3.9 BL.
      The 4.6 BL phone will end up with a 3.9 FakeBlank bootloader.

      I followed this guide, but my iPhone's stuck on the ipipe console screen, just looping and looping, even thought the terminal was finished 5 minutes ago.

      Any ideas???

      Thanks in advance!

      edit: it says 'iplus 2.0b - pass 2 starting'

      should I just unplug my phone and reboot?

      Anyone?

      jailbreak/activate/unlock = iplus -u
      jailbreak/activate = iplus
      jailbreak = delete payload.zip in the iplus folder then iplus

      sounds like pass 2 didn't finish. redo it. you don't have to restore. just put the phone in dfu and iplus again. no -u necessary this time

      if you only jailbreak your bootloader won't be touched

      you need to activate every time you restore and/or jailbreak. if you have an ATT sim with the legit iphone plan, itunes will activate it for you, otherwise, those who unlock will need to use the activate feature.

      you have to restore your phone to 1.1.4 first before you use iPlus and yes you will lose everything and have to reinstall.

      Tried again...

      It just sticks on the pass 2 starting

      Looks like this method isn't going to work for me.
