    Default The XiPhone Project [Windows]
    Remember when things on windows used to be difficult and ages behind OS X releases? Soon to enter the fray currently occupied by WinPwn and
    QuickPwn will be XiPhone.



    Why another one? The developers of XiPhone would like to address the primary flaws that exist in both QuickPwn and WinPwn. Both curret programs lack lack the backing of the Windows API as well as the backing of a real development environment. XiPhone is based on XPWN and looks like it will become a nice alternative assisting Windows users in freeing the iPhone / iPod Touch.




    Features:
    • Auto downloading of stock firmware files from apple’s site (no need to hunt for it then select it)
    • Wizard based modern GUI (created with .net 2.0), and Vista Style UI.
    • Export of firmware settings so users can pass around an XML file which contains a configuration that works for them.
    • Auto updates to the XiPhone software.
    • Automatic conversion of images to PNG format
    • Saving of configurations to XML format for fast loading.
    • Community based wallpapers used for bootscreen, Restore screen and others
    • Enabling / Disabling of options available based on the device you select.
    Now XiPhone would like you're help with some friendly feedback and suggestions for their project. Post 'em up folks!

    Unfortunate name pronunciation considering all the bad press ZiPhone has had.

    Or is it Ex-iphone?

    Good luck with it though.

    For the "simple" users such as myself, meaning mobile terminal is only easy with a youtube video in front of me :-) ... is their going to be any noticible difference between winpwn and Xiphone? I mean isn't this just another custom firmware builder?

    DUDE use the search button. you will never get help posting questions randomly on this site.

    hopefully this program addresses alot of the issues with winpwn and quikpwn.

    i dont why people keep bashing Zibri. I think the guy is genius and very smart.
    I'm no noob at this iphone/ipod touch Jn and unlock stuff.
    I think ziphone was an excellent piece of software. i still have a 2g iphone on 1.1.4 and i always use ziphone on it. NEVER EVER had a sing problem with ziphone.
    I think he did a good job at that,even if people say he stole the code.
    Dev Team is very awesome also. There advancement is greatly appreciated i this field.
    I think anyone who helps us out in this area of Jail breaking/ unlocking should not be bashed upon.

    Once again this is not ZiPhone nor is it related by any means. This is an alternate to Winpwn and QuickPwn. The main goal is to have it be a community driven piece of software.

    You might want to consider the name, search XiPhone on iPodTouchFans and you'll see there is already an app in the same name, I'd call this AiPhone or something

    Young padawan you have so much to learn...

    Stealing other people's ideas and code and saying that you are the one "working hard" on it and that it takes up all your time and you need donations and ads on your site to pay for the time you are spending but really you are just making money off of people by scamming them is usually considered "shady". If you think Zibri is "great" for the community and that "ziphone never gave you a problem" then you are a "noob at this iphone/ipod touch Jn and unlock stuff" I'm sure since you aren't a noob as you say you meant JB... as in jailbreak.

    To me, people who are influential in the community but aren't necessarily involved with the "dev team" are people like geohotz. He was the absolute first person to jailbreak an iphone and he is a genious. Even he pokes fun at zibri because zibri is a total douche bag. Another very influential person that I rely upon to give me my JB app fix is BigBoss. I was going to write out all the reasons why ZiPhone sucks but looks like he already did. Check out his blog:

    » Why Avoid Ziphone? - iPhone News & Review

    Excerpt:
    "But Ziphone works fine for me? Why should I avoid it?"

    I hear this all the time. It’s simple. Ziphone does permanent changes to your phone. Zibri is a terrible coder that stole most the exploits for ZiPhone and did not create them. Zibri admits that he cannot code. Ziphone does work most of the time. But when it does not work, you are most likely left with an unfixable brick. Other jailbreak software such as iLiberty+, Pwnage, will not leave you with a brick. Everything they do can be reverted safely. This means if they fail on you, you just restore and try again. No harm done.

    With ziphone, your damage is permanent. It’s a crap shoot. It may work 9 times out of 10, but on that 10th time that it fails out, you can expect to be purchasing a new iPhone. Sounds great right? Indeed, this is so common that the term “ziphoned” actually has meaning (a bricked phone caused by ZiPhone). Check out the google search on the term and see the problems for yourself."
    And if you think this is all "made up" and just some crazy elaborate scheme to give Zibri a bad name then you have your head so far up his *** there is no help for you. I have a close friend who actually had this problem and could not fix it no matter how many restores he tried. He had to return his phone because of ZiPhone. Don't give your opinion on something you know nothing about.

    The moment I saw that this was named XiPhone I wanted to laugh/cry. Very poor choice of a name. I don't care how you are supposed to pronounce it. BUT, awesome job on the actual program and I'm glad Zibri has NOTHING to do with it.
