Excellent app, I just try it on a otb 1.1.2 restored to 1.1.3 with itunes and executed the -a -j command and everything works but it remains in the emergency dial screen? I do not want to unlock it since I'm using a ATT sim card but not on an iphone plan? How can I jailbreak it and activate only?

Hey Guys. I've got a OOB 1.1.3 unlocked in India, and I am able to send/received SMS and received phone calls. For some reason I can't call out. Anyone have any ideas? I tried iWorld, but it seems to only work in 1.1.2. I also tried the WinSCP method of patching appSupport. No luck with that. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

I have a 1.1.2 OTB HW unlocked. Recently I've upgraded it to 1.1.3 (did a restore) but after activate and jailbreake using ZiPhone its WiFi acting kind of weird. After a successfully connecting to an Ad-Hoc it will disconnect when i press the home button. I reseted the network settings but nothing happened.

hi, i used ziphone and all went well, but i'm still on 404.02.13_G. i tried using the iclarified tutorial to update my 3.9 BL Baseband to 04.03.13_G, but I get a mainscript error... Someone please help me!

BTW, my phone is a 1.1.2 OTB, I had killed all itunes stuff from the task manager and been monitoring the services. ziphone.ex is using 2684K of memory and AppleMobileDeviceService.exe 788K. Cheers.

Hi guys I am running vista, and did the ziphone -u -a -j, it went all the way to show me Please wait 2'30. but it has been seating there for about 25min and nothing has happened. The phone rebooted at first I guess it is part of the work it is doing, and during this time the screen has flash about 2 times, that I have notice, but still sitting in the apple icon. Is there any way to know this is still working or how to stop and try again? I really appreciate any help.

oli did you install bsd system, udate sources, and install openssh before you tried installing other apps?
Oli - February 12, 2008 at 7:39pm
Make sure you quit ituneshelper.exe from task manager as that stops the phone being jailbroken! I tried on my 1.1.3 16GB OTB five times before I quit ituneshelper and then installer finally popped up! I would add that NOT ALL apps are working on this jailbreak - I don't know if its my phone or because they are not made to work with this new jailbreak method?!
Jason - February 12, 2008 at 5:34pm
Well I completed everything and said done, but I don't see customizer and other stuff? Was I suppose to unlock it as well, if I had a legit ATT account?

After hours spent on the Dev Team's Tutorials, ending in a not 100% working iphone (installer was not installing with script execution failure error..) THE BEST WAS ZIBREE'S SOLUTION with ziphone -u -a -j . I followed JAS advice (read comments..) : restored back to a clean 1.1.3 my OOTB phone and used ziphone from a dos window. ALL went OK in a few minutes !!! My phone is working now unlocked and jailbroken as expected. Thanks to ZIBREE and iClarified for the GOOD Tutorials. Well Done !
