Perform these steps with your iPhone on and connected to your computer.

Download ZiPhone from: here

Double click on your desktop to extract the folder ZiPhone..

Step Three
Press the Windows key and R at the same time to bring up the Run window. Type in cmd and press the Ok button to launch the Command Prompt.

Step Four
Type the following command into the Command Prompt to navigate to the ZiPhone directory:
cd Desktop/ZiPhone.

Step Four
Execute the command ziphone -Z A: to see all its possible uses.

Step Five
The program will prompt you to put your iPhone into recovery mode. To do this please hold down both the Sleep/Wake and Power buttons until you see the Apple logo. Once the Apple logo appears release only the Sleep/Wake button until you see the iTunes logo and cable on the screen.

Step Six
If you have a 4.6 BL iPhone you can now activate, jailbreak, and unlock! Just simply type in this command:
ziphone -a -j -u

Step Seven
The program will now search for zibri.dat. Then it will search for the iPhone. Once found it will tell you to wait for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

Step Eight
After this time your iPhone will reboot and it will be activated, jailbroken, and unlocked!!!!

NOTE*: After completion its probably a good idea to install BSD Subsystem first then OpenSSH from

NOTE*: If you are in an unsupported country YOU MUST patch AppSupport after unlocking or your dialer will keep crashing as will your SMS:

THANKS***: Big thanks go to Zibri

Will this method bypass iCloud Actication Lock? Or atleast find the icloud account to which it is linked to?
