After unlocking the phone I can't send out text messages. I receive them with no problem but get an error everytime I send/reply.

yea i have the same problem with the phone numbers im in argentina and i have to put 011 and 11 the you tube problem u need to go to installer and download BSD subsystems and then go to 1.1.4 patches and there will be one in the folder called youtube patch.

My iphone is unlocked already but how do you fix the youtube problem? Also, I have a problem with my phone book, whenever I try to save a number I need to store it twice as +63917xxxxxxx and 0917xxxxxxx (philippine numbers) because it wouldn't be able to recognize the name of the contact in sms messages and in calls. How do I fix this?

hey so i just used ZiPhone and everything is great except for the camera. Every time i try to take a photo it crashes my phone. does this happen to anyone else???? Or does anyone know how to fix this?

I have a 1.1.2 and just used ziphone, did the BSD and then the openSSH installation. After that I added countries using Fugu. After that i rebooted as stated. Now I am stuck with the apple logo. Before rebooting the phone worked well. What to do? Any ideas what the problem could be? Thanks

I used this for new 16gb with my tiger and all seems to work fine. I can't install BSD though, all should be good (unlocked, Wifi fine etc). It works with a SIM from finland too so how about this step, is it necessary? If you are in an unsupported country YOU MUST patch AppSupport after unlocking or your dialer will keep crashing as will your SMS: Help with the BSD would be great!

I can only get themes from polar bear farm to work with summerboard after using ziphone. They will not show up unless it's from Polar Bear Farm. Any ideas? Also, customize does not open, it just tries to and shuts down. Thanks.

Yipee! The sustained Apple logo problem that I was having is gone...and my phone is unlocked and jailbroken!
Louis - February 13, 2008 at 7:31pm
Yea, the ziphone terminal won't even find my phone in the initial command "dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: symbol not found: _sleep$UNIX2003 Referenced from: /Users/louis/desktop/ziphone/ziphone expected in: /usr/lib/libsystem.b.dylib" When I gave the directory listing /louis/lib/libsystem.b.dylib it tells me that no such file or directory exists. ? Help please?

ok, this is probably the strangest thing i ever experienced with this phone and trust me, i've gone though a lot: after failing to put it into DFU several times it suddenly worked. then i tried to restore but got a 2001 error (multiple times). i almost surrendered when all of a sudden the phone showed some terminal kind of process on the screen and it came back jailbroken!!! i have not the slightest idea why and how but if you're stuck with the siver logo, just be patient. at some point it'll work ;)
iClarified - February 13, 2008 at 7:08pm
I have updated the tutorial to hopefully get around the Apple logo problem!
adrian - February 13, 2008 at 7:00pm

Has anyone tried iJailbreak 0.5.3 ? Apparently it works ?
astro - February 13, 2008 at 3:42pm
TO THOSE WHO ARE USING ZIPHONE AND ARE GETTING THE SILVER APPLE LOGO AND NO RESPONSE FROM THE COMPUTER: I found the note at the top of the iClarified tutorial for ZiPhone. I struggled for 3 hours last night trying to get the phone unlocked with ZiPhone 1.1, and it would just hang and say Wait 2'30" and then sit at the silver apple logo... Saw the note saying 1.0 wasn't getting those errors. So I tried it with Ziphone 1.0 and it worked perfectly!!! Check which version you are using this may be the problem! Good luck!

Here is a pattern that seems to work repeatedly (where nothing did before) avoiding the white Apple completely: *Option Restore using iTunes selecting a downloaded 1.1.3 firmware file *Remove Sim *Put iPhone Into Restore mode *Run Ziphone BUT MAKE SURE TO SET THE -v FLAG (running without it never completes (white Apple), running with it completes properly) *For those without new baseband (1.1.1 OTB) get BSD, and AnySim 1.3, put into Airline mode, run AnySim, uninstall Anysim This has worked twice now perfectly, where nothing worked before. Its seems like the -v flag lets Ziphone complete properly
astro - February 13, 2008 at 3:38pm
hello, thank you for your advice, but shouldn't the baseband on my phone be 4.03.13_G if it came with 1.1.2 OTB? Or does 1.1.3 only come with 4.03.13_G OTB. In any case, I RESTORED these phone to 1.1.3 which I assume would upgrade the baseband. Using Locate Me to get Maps working is a crappy workaround since that has to be done everytime the phone gets shut off/reset whatever. How do I upgrade the baseband on my 1.1.2 OTB iPhone? It is currently activated, jailbroke, and unlocked using ZiPhone. Thanks for any help! :)

i also have the problem of going into recovery mode and getting bus error can someone please help me very frustrating thanks in advance
simon - February 13, 2008 at 12:52pm

jakecigar - February 13, 2008 at 12:41pm
Coasterjob, I'm on a g5 too...I zip'ed with my iPhone connected to a 3rd party usb hub! But 1.1 never worked... I used 1.0
Pat Dengler
Pat Dengler - February 13, 2008 at 12:33pm
My iPhone was plugged in directly
Coasterjob - February 13, 2008 at 12:24pm
I'm in a similar situation, 1.1.2 OTB, OS10.5.2, itunes 7.6, on a PPC G5. I did see a post about having the iPhone plugged into the computer directly, I think my Dock cable is pluugged into my Cinema display, maybe that could be it? I keep getting the apple logo on the iphone, and the wait 2'30" thing, but it never completes. Can someone post a discernable FAQ?

Pat Dengler - February 13, 2008 at 12:17pm
I keep getting stuck with the white apple logo - where it ask for me to wait 2.5's endless. I'm running Leopard, latest iTunes, 8GB iPhone purchased the day they came out...not sure which BL I have. 1.1.3. I've tried and restored twice now...not sure what else to do...
Jonas - February 13, 2008 at 7:50am
Squirter - don't know. All of a sudden i rebooted... Now on the other hand I can't use the old 1.1.1 - jailbreak - 1.1.2 unlocking solution either as I get error message (1) from iTunes when trying to restore to 1.1.1. What's that all about?
rbenl - February 13, 2008 at 7:33am
hey guys, i'm always getting this bus error: Loading zibri.dat. Architecture: apple/i386 Searching for iPhone... Please power off the iPhone, then hold the home button and connect to dock to enter recovery mode. Please power off the iPhone, then hold the home button and connect to dock to enter recovery mode. Working... Bus error anyone able to help? thanks! i'm not too sure about holding the home button and connecting to the dock...
Squirter - February 13, 2008 at 5:28am
Jonas - what was your solution?
Jonas - February 13, 2008 at 4:30am
Never mind! Problem solved!
Jonas - February 13, 2008 at 4:17am
@iClarified... Se previous post. Got the silver apple logo problem but it's stuck! Cant reboot, power/home combination makes no difference. Is it all gone and bricked by now?
Jonas - February 13, 2008 at 4:04am
Oops... 1.1.2 OOB, previously jalilbreake and used with StealtSim on 1.1.2. Now restored to 1.1.1 and jailbreaked, upgraded to 1.1.2 (iClarifieds prvious tutorials) then upgrade to 1.1.3 from iTunes. Then ZiPhone tutorial (PPC with downloaded ppc version of ZiPhone). Now SILVER APPLE! Cant rebot, cant get the phone back to restore mode. Bricked?
jakecigar - February 13, 2008 at 2:03am
alpine did it for root! thanks truckdriver!
truckdiver - February 13, 2008 at 2:00am

jakecigar - February 13, 2008 at 1:57am
I was happily running 112 (jb'ed). Now,I've made it to 113 via itunes, then jailbreaked with ZiPhone 1.0 on my ol' g5. I installed SSH... but what is my password for root and/or mobile? dottie doesn't do it!
truckdiver - February 13, 2008 at 1:41am
is it possible that my imei is not working? even itunes will not reconize the UK sim do i have firt activate en jailbreak 11,3 than change the imei with the ziphone and than again unloc with with ziphone i have a 4,6 running on leopard
ttruckdiver - February 13, 2008 at 1:32am
its now running 10min and notting happens. on the iphone can i see the apple logo and terminal still say plaese wait 2,3" thx for a answer
keets28 - February 13, 2008 at 1:25am
@astro install locateme from installer it's a third party app, run it one time, then uninstall and locateme should work on google maps. that's what i did. try it out
astro - February 13, 2008 at 1:22am
hello, i have two 1.1.2 OTB iPhones that I restored to 1.1.3 before using ZiPhone. Worked flawlessly, however... these phones have a 4.02.13_G baseband?!??? So the Locate feature in Maps is not working. Any ideas? These are 1.1.2 OTB phones, so they come with the 4.6 bootloader etc, right? One is week 47 and one is week 52 Thank for any help, and a big thanks to Zibri!
cyphunk - February 13, 2008 at 12:47am
@ Moon you need to follow the directions above and download ziphone, unzip it somewhere. Then, well, just copy all the contents of the archive from rapidshare to the same directory (you have to unarchive them first) and execute the universal binary i included.
Moon - February 13, 2008 at 12:42am
@cyphunk I am on tiger, what comand to i use to run that file via terminal?? Its inside the unzipped folder, i just need to execute it. Thanks
cyphunk - February 13, 2008 at 12:36am
here is ziphone 1.1 for osx10.4 in x86/ppc and universal binaries form: note, you need to have the ziphone 1.1. copy the needed bin from the downloaded archive at the link above into the same directory where you unziped ziphone.
dribbles - February 13, 2008 at 12:16am
@iclarified I tried ziphone 1.0 and I can confirm it works WITHOUT the 7.4.2 MobileDevice.framework. I followed the tutorial posted above with ziphone 1.0 with only 1 difference from your steps which is that I put the phone into recovery mode, before entering the "./ziphone -a -j -u". This step was in your old tutorial posted earlier today but is omitted from this one. Thanks for your help.
