    Default ++important Info Regarding Ziphone And Ipods++ Dont Use It!!!!
    As the title suggest. It seems ziphone is really flakey when it comes to ipods.

    I can confirm that it will not work on a 32gb ipod touch. I have tried it on two different ones. It seems it will work on an 8 gb though.

    If you ipod gets messed up, all the scrolling white lines that keep going then you will have to do a restore and start over.

    I suggest following this guide, it is thorough and I can confirm it does work.

    As stated, ZiPhone will work on 8 gig ipod touch, but not 16 or 32 gig. But support for 16 and 32 gig will be coming soon.

    its a matter of timing. With your itouch plugged into you computer so you can hear the "hardware connected" sound, hold down power and home for ten seconds, then release the power button and keep holding the home button. You should hear the computer make a sound saying that it found newly connected hardware but you itouches screen should be completely white. Then go to iTunes and restore it with which ever firmware you want. If it doesn't go into DFU mode at first, keep trying and it should work.

    what is your iTouch doing? If iTunes won't recognize it, read the post above.

    Ok i got the same problem as screamo and steve99, i tried the ziphone( on my 8gb, 1.1.4) it didnt work and now the itouch keeps repeating "BSD root: md0, major 2, minor 0" i tried holding the power/home button and letting go the power to get it into recovery mode. but now itunes wont restore it, and ziphone wont do it either. What should i do now?

  16. #13
    try putting it into dfu mode, hold home and sleep button for about 8 seconds the ipod disappears from itunes and disconnects. continue to hold the home button for about another ten seconds until itunes detects the ipod, but don't hold it too long. if you get a screen where the itunes logo and a connector appears then you did it wrong. you want the screen to look black, but you also want itunes to recognize it. kind of like following the first part of the 1.1.3 jailbreak guide by zamphire... that worked for me

    For the last few days posts has been seen about the ZiPhone 2.5 (or lower) and the device iPod Touch, Huge problems while jailbreaking, Message's like "Spamming AT, waiting for a response".

    Okay. Here we go, This is a universal fix (Please follow my guide and do not change to any own direction)

    1. Put your iPod Touch in restore mode and restore to the latest version in iTunes.
    (That will be 1.1.4, So do not use SHIFT-RESTORE, but just click restore in iTunes)
    2. When done restoring please fill in the iPod's name in iTunes and unselect sync.
    (You can skip it but its advised to do, I do not know why?)
    3. Close iTunes
    (Just close iTunes, do not end any processes or services.. Just close iTunes)
    4. Download the follow package and unzip wherever you want when your mood says so: http://ric.themoon.googlepages.com/jailbreak.zip
    (And run the follow file "run.bat" TWICE!!)
    5. Your iPod Touch 1.1.4 will be jailbreaked and installer.app will be installed.
    (If it fails, and that will be 10% because i've tested this on 5 different iPod Touch's today. Just follow the steps agian. If nothing happens, Please post on the forums for help).

    Okay childeren, Now stop posting those annoying same topics over and over agian! Happy policehunting (Jailbreaking.. get him?) Damn im good..?!

    Update: If jailbreaking was successfully please use "Thank you" so I can keep a tracklist of successfully jailbreaked iPod's.

    ziphone does work for 1.1.4 but i wouldnt suggest it since its not perfected and has some problems with it in general even with 8gb i touches so id suggest doing like me and stick with 1.1.3

  21. #17
    Thanks Mirrormind and lightmaster. I ran a 32GB touch through the latest Ziphone and it locked on the scrolling script. I should have checked here first. Lightmaster, you got me back on the right track.

    Thanks again,

    For those of you who have trouble getting to dfu mode, I found a program on the internet and, since I can't remember where I found it, I uploaded it to my website. http://lightmaster.tech.googlepages.com/DFU.zip read the readme file, it explains how to use the program.

    if you have any questions, pm me

    The title of this thread should probably be changed to "++important Info Regarding ZiPhone And iTouchs++ DO Use it!!"

    Early this morning, ZiPhone 2.6 was released. This new version fully supports iTouch 1.1.4 firmware. I have been running 1.1.4 not jailbroken because I was waiting for this new version to come out. Just before I left for school this morning, I downloaded the latest ZiPhone and ran it on my iTouch. About a minute and a half later, it was jailbroken and working fine. I installed a modified version of Customize and tested it. Customize crashed the first time as usual, but the second time, it worked perfectly. you can get the modified version of Customize from my repo. http://lightmaster.tech.googlepages.com/repo.xml
