    there is a new version of ziphone makes this process way easier... a few questions answered. yes this installs that is what jailbrekaing IS!!

    you can use this to unlock any version now 3.9 or 4.6 bootloader!

    It doesn't matter where your phone is right now or if it's been jailbroken before or any of that. What I would do is restore to pure apple 1.1.3 then run ziphone OR if you are on an earlier version of firmware, jailbroken or not is DOESN'T matter, just update in itunes to 1.1.3 it will wipe out previous changes and you will be on pure 1.1.3 then run ziphone.


    only issue I can report having is youtube says "can't connect" the only fix in installer i see is a 1.1.1 which didn't seem to fix.

    anyone have insight into this?

    I successfully used ziphone 2.3 with the GUI to jailbreak and unlock my 1.1.3 16gb OOB iPhone, but I can't get youtube to work. It says "Can't Connect to Youtube". I tried the fixes in installer but they did not work.

    Does anyone know if with the latest version of ZiPhone you still need iTunes 4.2? Only iTunes 7 actually recognizes my phone, so I'm out of luck if it requires 4.2.

    This is not as easily spelled out for not so computer savvy people as the first jailbreak I used which was more steps , but took me half the time. Here is what finally after 3 hours actually worked. Thanks to Joe's post on 2-12

    1. uninstall your current itunes first and then download the downgraded itunes 7.4.2

    2. the only thing that worked for putting my phone in recovery mode which actually worked was using joe's post on feb 12th. THanks so much.

    a. take phone out of dock
    b. hold power off until slider bar for power off comes up. Slide to power off.
    c.immediately hold down home button during shutdown of phone and continue to do so while you put the phone back into the dock. itunes loco and cable should now appear.

    3. I had a problem with the link to ziphone, I actually had to use the link lower down for zibri's blog post to get the ziphone application.

    4. open your ziphone folder and extract to desktop open the command prompt. (windows button and r then cmd) or (start menu, accessories, command prompt)

    6. type cd desktop
    7. cd ziphone
    8. cd ziphone again
    9. ziphone.exe -j -a
    type exactly as as above step nine there is a space after exe and the j
    it should reboot and when you slide the bar on your phone you should see an installer button.

    10. restore your phone and you can upgrade your itunes to 7.6. go to help menu in itunes and select check for updates.

    hi. tried to run ziphone on a 1.0.2 oob.
    it was upgraded straight to 1.1.3 using itunes 7.6.

    i downgraded itunes 7.6 to 7.4.2 using pacifist.
    had an error message when i tried opening downgraded 7.4.2.
    "The file iTunes Library cannot be read because it was created
    by a newer version of iTunes."
    I tried transferring the itunes library file to my desktop and itunes
    7.4.2 opened (without my songs though.)

    then ziphone.
    placed the ziphone file to my terminal and got the following message:

    Last login: Wed Feb 20 04:42:32 on console
    Welcome to Darwin!
    marks-mac:~ querubin$ /Users/querubin/Desktop/ZiPhone/ziphone -j -u
    dyld: Library not loaded: ./libMobileDevice742.dylib
    Referenced from: /Users/querubin/Desktop/ZiPhone/ziphone
    Reason: image not found
    Trace/BPT trap
    marks-mac:~ querubin$

    tried the process about 3 times already.
    upgrading back to 7.6 then back then using ziphone again but same message.

    i used ziphone 2.4 on my mac osx 10.4.11 powerpc g4.

    help please. thank you very much!

    If you are getting errors when you try to run ziphoneGUI for Windows, it is probably because you don't have .Net Framework 2.0 or greater installed on your system. Get it from Microsoft then try again.

    Hello, I have quite a few questions about this process thatI would love help in answering. First of all, can this be done with a regular 1.1.3 phone or does it require a downgrade to 1.1.2 first? Also, is there anywhere to find if the jailbreak will work with my baseband and whatever else must be compatible to keep it from bricking? (I run 1.1.2 OTB). Also, as for bricking the iphone, that cannot be fixed with a restore, correct? Just checking...

    I appreciate ANY and ALL help from any of you guys! Thanks a ton!

    Also, thanks to iphonehacks for running a fantastic site! I love it and appreciate all of your hard work.

    I tried the method for jailbreaking the phone for windows version using itunes 7.4.2 and ziphone and it worked. I did a system restore in itunes and ran ziphone and it added the installer app. I did it foer version 1.1.4.

    If I do this jailbreak from 1.1.3, what will happen to my added home screen shortcut icons?

    Also, how should I backup my phone? In iTunes?

    Thanks a lot!
