Thread: Need Help Upgrading a v1.1.3 iPhone Unlocked w/ZIPhone

    Default Need Help Upgrading a v1.1.3 iPhone Unlocked w/ZIPhone
    Hi,

    I am hoping someone can help me. I currently have an iPhone that has firmware 1.1.3 which was unlocked using ZIPhone for use on the TMobile network.

    Since originally unlocking the phone there are some apps that have come out I wish to download but I am unable to until I upgrade my phones software.

    I have been told that if I upgrade the software I will no longer be able to us my iPhone and it may even damage it.

    What I would like to know is there a way to upgrade the firmware to a newer version that will allow me to use some of these new apps but not damage my phone and still allow it to be used on TMobiles network?

    Any help/advice would be appreciated.

    Mike

    Here are the steps:

    OK, here is what you need to do if you have an iphone 2G with 3.9 bootloader and unlocked using ziphone. Therefore, never been pwned.
    -First, connect your current iphone to itunes. Back up everything. (Sync your accounts).
    -Next, go into user/library/itunes and create a folder named "device support". If its already there, then delete everything in it.
    -Now download the proper 2.0 ipsw file from this forum.
    -Donwload the 3.9 and 4.6 bin files from this forum.
    -Place everything on your desktop.
    -Download Pwnge 2.0
    -Open up pwnge 2.0
    -Select the first option (iphone) but in expert mode
    -browse your computer to locate the 2.0 ipsw file.
    -Next in general tab, use enable baseband update
    -In bootloader, checkmark the box for update the bootloader and checkmark upgrade to 4.6.
    -Finally, pick build and hit the next button.
    -Pwnage will ask you to locate both the 3.9 and 4.6 bin files. Locate them manually (Make sure they were unzipped first)
    -Then it will ask you to find a location to save the new custom ipsw file.
    -Hit save and Pwnage will build the custom firmware in the selected saved location.
    -Pwnage will ask you for your administrative password to finalize the process.
    -Once the process is done, you will get a prompt telling you to plus in your iphone using your usb.
    -Follow the steps on screen to put your phone into DFU mode.
    -Pwnage will tell you it successfully found your phone in DFU mode
    -Next, close Pwnage and open up Itunes.
    -Option click the restore button and locate your new custom firmware.
    -Let itunes do its thing.
    -Once the process is done, your iphone will boot into 2.0 software but don't touch it yet.
    -Bootloader will do its thing by flashing your iphone to the proper baseband (4.6)
    -Do not touch your computer while this is happening even if Itunes is asking you to set up a new iphone.
    -Once the flashing has been done, your phone will be unlocked, activated and jailbroken.
    -If you have two macs like I do, I did the pwnage on one and had my back up on another.
    -Plug in your iphone and itunes should tell you to restore your phone with previous settings (contacts, pictures etc.)
    -Choose, restore and let the iphone get all of your data back.
    -You will notice a new tab for application.
    -Checkmark "sync all applications".
    -Get your apps from the itunes store.

    Enjoy, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me @ [email protected]

    Using Rogers in Canada and the pwnage 2.1 worked flawlessly.

    Holy crap.

    Thanks for the help but I think this might be beyond my technical abilities. Is this the only way to upgrade and unlock past 1.1.3?

    I can't just relock the phone using ZIPhone and upgrade it through iTunes and then relock it with ZIPhone or something else?
