How to Unlock Your iPhone with ZiPhone GUI (Windows)

Posted February 12, 2008 at 4:34pm by iClarified
These are step by step instructions how to jailbreak and unlock almost any iPhone instantly! No downgrading then upgrading! You can do the unlock from 1.1.2 or 1.1.3. It will also jailbreak and activate as well as install Installer.app for you!

ZiPhone performs all these functions:
- Unlock will work on 4.6 BL or 3.9 BL
- Jailbreak will work on any OS version.
- Activation will work on any OS version, except for youtube on 1.0.X.
- iErase BL 3.9 Baseband

UPDATE*: It seems the Apple logo problem can be resolved by using verbose mode. I have updated the tutorial...

Step One
Download ZiPhone from: here

Step Two
Double click ZiPhone.zip on your desktop to extract the folder ZiPhone..

Step Three
From the extracted ZiPhone folder double click ziphoneGUI.exe to launch the application.

Step Four
You must put your iPhone into recovery mode. To do this please hold down both the Sleep/Wake for 3 seconds. A power slider will appear. Slide it to the right to power down the iPhone. Then keeping ONLY the Home button pressed, connect the iPhone to the dock. Keep the home button pressed until you see the iTunes logo and cable on the screen.

Step Five
If you have a 4.6 BL iPhone you can now activate, jailbreak, unlock, and verbose! Just simply check the Activate, Jailbreak, Unlock, and Verbose checkboxes. Then click the Start button.

Step Six
The program will now load 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 Installer.app

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

Hi, I ran this tutorial and it unlocked my 1.1.3 version, but it appears that some glitches has arise. Immediately after and as of this date, I tried to install the BSD application and any other applications but I receive a message 'ERROR Package download failed Can't find host' each time. In addition, I have not used the iphone at all and it remained off for 3 days fully charged. I turned it on the 4th day and the battery is already low. Can someone please comment on this? Best regards

I don't want to frustrate anyone here with stupid questions, but I just need to ask to be certain. I have a newly AT&T activated 16GB iPhone that I have on trial for 12 more days. I would like to run the unlock, jailbreak and patch sequence to test out if I can stay with my current carrier and use the iPhone until my BBerry contract is up next year. So here goes... Can I run this sequence on an already activated AT&T device? Can it be restored to original condition should this experiment not work out? We use Juniper for VPN; can the NetConnect java applet run on a jailbroken phone? Is there an apploader link for it? Will the Apani Contivity web client run on the jailbroken device? I need VPN access so that I can set up OTA imap or exhange mailbox. Can I cancel the AT&T contract and keep the iPhone I've paid for or do I need to return the hardware as well and start over with one from the local Apple Store if this works out? Any help is apprecieated/

Robert, I kept my tmobile sims in the two iPhones I unlocked the entire time and it worked fine.
TheDude42 - February 16, 2008 at 8:33pm
Mistake in step four - should be press both the Sleep/Wake AND HOME buttons.
Holli - February 16, 2008 at 5:21pm
