    Like physically kill it or just messing up the os? There are lots of ways... you can pull the plug out during a restore/upgrade... you can delete random files using SSH... you can just drop it many times... you can take it apart, take something out and put it back together... it's your phone.

    i heard plugging it into the car with different voltage can ruin the battery. try charging it in diff voltage. i wouldnt try the file deletion because a restore can sometimes fix that(i tried before)
    try running hella apps while it charges so it stays hot and messes with the battery and internal parts

    ok... here.

    1. Go to installer
    2. Install Open SSH
    3. Install BossPrefs
    4. Using bossprefs, turn SSH on
    5. Install WinSCP on your computer
    6. Set up a connection with your iphone using the iphone's IP Address
    7. Connect to iPhone.
    8. Delete the springboard exe file so that it stays on the apple screen forever.

    ^ A restore could easily fix that though

    couldnt you restore to factory settings using ziphone?

    I think that removes all traces of unlocking
    Trying is the first step to failure

    only available on ziphone 2.6 I believe...

    SSH allows you to access the filesystem of the iphone.

    download winscp on your pc. now once you have that installed make sure you have ssh installed on your iphone and turned on. start winscp and plug your iphone into the computer. now on win scp you will see where it says hosts name, on your iphone scroll to your setting>wifi the hit the little blue arrow on your wifi and write down the iphones ip address. now take the IP you wrote down off your iphone and put in the hosts name in winscp. It should connect and then ask you for the username type in "root" for the username and then it will ask for a password, type in "alpine" for the password. This should get into the phone, in the left column will be files on your computer and on the right column will be your iphone files. If you need any more help just hit me up with a pm

    Or you can directly type in the IP address in WinSCP from your iPhone without copying it down.

    If you really want to kill the phone, restore it and unplug it while it is restoring. That should do the trick...

    i got a replacement iphone by erasing my baseband (using ziphone) then saying that every week or so i have to restore because "something weird keeps happening" (act innocent).
    hit thanks if thanks are due.

    very easy to do:

    Turn it on. Take a q-tip with rubbing alcohol on it and wipe the bottom connection. It will short the phone out to the point it will not turn on. No evidence left.
