    you mistakenly said to hit the update button, but you meant restore!

    "you can hold the option key on a Mac or Shift key on a Windows system, then click the “Update” button in iTunes (under the iPhone tab) and select the file to apply it."

    !!! IMPORTANT !!!

    Do NOT click the "Update" button! Instead press the "Option" key (on a Mac) or the "Shift" key (on a PC) and then click the "RESTORE" button in iTunes. After that you just select the 1.1.4 firmware package you downloaded.

    Why go through the trouble of hold shift key or anything before restoring, just open Itunes and when it loads just hit restore, it will restore and update to 1.1.4. Mine worked like charm, checked everything and it they all works great

    Please update the link of the iPhone firmware, it links to "iPod1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore" instead of "iPhone1,1_1.1.4_4A102_Restore"

    I HAVE MY IPHONE UNLOCKED WITH 1.1.3. SHOULD I FOWOLL THIS INTRUCTIONS: For all those running iPhone with older firmware, Zibri recommends them to restore to 1.1.4 and not to update. So download the latest iPhone firmware 1.1.4 as a standalone download from this link (size: 165 MB) and after downloading the update, you can hold the "Option" key on a Mac or "Shift" key on a Windows system, then click the “Update” "Restore" button in iTunes (under the iPhone tab) and select the file to apply it. (Thanks Jason Burroughs & meow66meow for highlighting the error.)

    Iphones will start selling like hotcakes..I already know 5 folks who are going to get an iphone after I showed them how easy it was to get t-mobile service with 1.1.4...I tried to buy another one at the apple store but you can't buy an iphone with cash.

    This is sooo cool...Now I have two phones and can go overseas and use the local SIM and not have to worry about a $4,000.00 phone bill when I get home because I was roaming...

    The only problem I had was youtube not working....I found that if you trash the files in /root/Library/Lockdown instead of replacing as suggested in 1.1.3 along with the file in the activation folder (trash it) you can reactivate youtube.

    There was a solution ABOVE for intel macs but when you hear of a solution and have tried it and can confirm AFTER EXPERIMENTING, please post the youtube fix in your next blog thanks.

    I just jailbreak my iphone. I tried installing new applications but they did not work. Did I do anything wrong or should Iwait for updates?

    I cannot believed how well this worked. I thought it was not bad jailbreaking 3 months ago with the 23 step process . When you think of hacking into a phone , you think that is something that you have to be some computer genius to do, but this new application is amazing. It really was one click and I actually didn't have any abnormal problems with this one. I like how it actually notes what processes are taking place and even more importantly it explains what should be going on with the iphone as it is jailbreaking the iphone. With the other hacks, you were just left wondering if what your iphone was doing was normal or not. I really hope that the summerboard and customized will work soon with 1.1.4. They need to keep it updated . That is the best part of hacking, the ability to customize every detail of your phone to make it your own.

    worked like a charm. used it on an unlocked 1.1.1 that i had upgraded from 1.0.2 weeks ago. to run this i use an acer notebook with WinXP , iTunes 7.6.1 and iPhone on 1.1.1:

    - upgraded iTunes to 7.6.1 on XP
    - synced my iphone
    - downloaded restore 1.1.4
    - downloaded and installed ziphone 2.5
    - press shift restore in iTunes to select restore 1.1.4 file (restore took several minutes)
    - ran ziphone and pressed do it all (took 4 minutes)
    - iTunes asked me to restore settings of previous iphone > yes did it
    - synced
    - everything works all data is restored

    one very happy banker :-))

    Kals - yes, it'll work for OTB (out of the box) iphone's. the OTB will most likely have the 1.1.3 firmware if not 1.1.2, so just restore your firmware to the 1.1.4 using the method provided...

    Summerboard works now!!!! (Before I changed the system file to think it was 1.1.3 in "CoreServices") But it now works with 1.1.4, only thing I am waiting for ins Customize, cause you know Apple most likely won't approve Customize with the SDK, it's too much of a change for the iPhone...But maybe...

    Wow, that was pretty simple. I was worried at first, and kind of hesitent, but I must say that was awesome. I just bought the 16G iPhone on Friday, It came with 1.1.3, I got home, and updated to 1.1.4. I read this post, and DL'd the 1.1.4_Restore, restored the phone to factory settings (1.1.3) Then tried to restore to 1.1.4, but it would give me an error. Tried restoring back to 1.1.3 and no go, gave me an error again. So I restarted my PC and the iPhone, plugged them back together it booted fine, restored the iphone to be working again and updated to 1.1.4 on it's own. I then did the shift click restore to 1.1.4 and installed ZiPhone and it worked like a charm! Thanks a lot!

    I do have one question for anyone reading these posts, hopefully you can help out, since I am a newbie to the iPhone and the 3rd party apps. Where would I be able to go to make my mp3's my ring tones? I made a 7 sec mp3 file I got for a ringtone, converted it to an AAC format, and it won't go into iTunes under ringtones. Which is kind of frustrating. Any ideas / suggestions would be greatly appriciated!
