    Also I agree with Reeko on the argument that a pre modded .ipsw is not that much of a use at the moment because if you think about it, how long does it take to do a full hack on the iPhone with ZiPhone 2.5, it took me about the same time as to go and make a cup of tea and a couple of slices of toast one morning and it takes maybe 3 - 4 minutes to do a restore/upgrade through iTunes. Also the more applications/files you add to the modded .ipsw file the longer it will take to restore/upgrade.

    I still think this is an amazing breakthrough in development for the iPhone but at the moment its easier just to use ZiPhone although I feel that if the 1.2 software proves to be extremely hard to jailbreak, unlock & activate then the modded .ipsw route will be much easier and safer to do.
    1. It's OK, allthough it would be illegal to actually put up the firmware, there is probably a way to get whatever patches you make into the directory for the patches. And it is actually pretty fast

    2. I can almost assure you that ZiPhone will not work with 1.2

    Aug 2007 we were assured the iPhone would never be unlocked.
    Oct 2007 we were assured FW 1.12 would never be unlocked.
    Dec 2007 we were assured (by Geohot) FW 1.13 could never be unlocked.

    Getting the drift yet?

    Default Backup Possibilities
    Could someone please verify my perception? I've been modding almost since the iPhone was released. I'm a PC guy (slowly learning more unix) and use imaging techniques on a daily basis as part of my job. My question is: It will soon be possible to "snapshot" an iPhone load/configuration for backup and reinstallation? This is huge if true. Anyone, thanks ahead for any feedback

    I never said it couldn't be unlocked. I am just telling you that you are going to be disappointed in June when you try ZiPhone.

    All this hack means is they have broken signature authorization to verify is valid file or not and allow it to be run.

    Simple put they extracted all files, modified and recompiled into itunes file format.

    Apple can combat with new itunes and tighter/better security. As if you read articl eon how done, they have the method, just STUPID to not implement.

    What does this all mean... any new firmware will be risky of being valid or not if donwloaded off untrusted sources....so may mean some bricks

    Seems a bit of an insult directed at Zibri's abilities. But I guess we'll see.

    I don't have a doubt in my mind that ziphone will work with June's update. Regardless imo the cat has paralyzed the mouse. Apply may have some limited abilities but we will always be ahead.

    Ok, maybe I am being too subtle. I tried it and it does not work on 1.2.

    I think you mean the dev team's abilities.

    You mean you tried it on a Beta 1.2 and it didn't work. And since Zibri hasn't made any changes to make it work on 1.2, its no wonder it didn't work. Come June, let's see if you sing the same tune.

    No, unlike many people I say exactly what I mean. The Dev Team had nothing to do with it. Geohot created to the code, without the Dev Teams assistance, and Zibri created the GUI.

    Seems making little programs has made your head too big.

    Yes, Zibri made the GUI. I don't think you understand a lot of this stuff...Geohot made the actual unlock...And the dev team MADE THE ACTUAL JAILBREAK. THEY FOUND THE EXPLOIT. Then Zibri stole it and made a GUI.

    Not ego. Just some knowledge you didn't have yet. Calm down, geez. The guy is trying to share some knowledge.
