    Default Help! Iphone Repair Needed No Serivice
    hello, I wonder if you would be able to help me out..

    my friend just jailbreaked his iphone only with ziphone , he is running 1.1.3 i believe and when he woke up this morning he said it had a message saying it needed repaired and he has no service at all...

    any help would be greatly appreciated since he doesnt have a phone to use.. thanks

    Best thing to do is open ziphone.. force the phone into DFU restore mode with the advanced features (or do it manually) and then restore to 1.1.4 and then re-jailbreak.

    Did you put it in DFU restore mode first?

    Does it give you a specific error code? 1501? 1602? ect....

    Oh... you are restoring to 1.1.4 right?

    One of the Mods on another thread suggested uninstalling iTunes, download and install a fresh updated version. Restart the computer and try restoring again.

    OK DONT PANIC!

    my phone did this one time and this is what worked for me:

    1. Turn ur fone off
    2. Turn it on while holding down the home button for a few seconds or so...
    3. After a few seconds plug it up to ur computer and it SHOULD be in restore mode, if not try again, no matter what u do to ur phone, restore mode should always work, ive never seen a case where it didnt...
    4. After that, click refurbish, let it run its course, if it takes longer than 20 min somethings wrong...
    5. IF it worked, and im sure it should, restore ur firmware back to where it was, if it doesnt work let me know...
    6. It should be okay. Like i said if it doesnt work, let me know and ill work with u

    You see, if you had read the above posts, you'd see that Restore mode indeed did not work.

    Can you still get it into restore mode by pressing and hold power and home? If you can, I recommend putting it into DFU mode manually by pressing and holding Power and Home for EXACTLY 10 seconds (use a stopwatch if you really have to), then let go of Power so its only Home being held down. Continue holding until iTunes recognizes it. Screen will be blank; that's normal.

    Hi,
    I used ziphone 2.5 to unlock my jailbroken otb1.1.2 iphone. it worked fine unlocking it but, wifi and bluetooth is not working. it says no wifi and bluetooth unavailable.
    Is there any solution to this?
    Thanx

    Yes, I know he already did DFU, but this time, its on a different firmware (if one exists) and it might change. I know I had to do DFU TWICE.

    Hmmm, something tells me that your bootloader, possibly the core of the firmware, is screwed up badly. I dunno, just a guess.
