How to Unlock Your iPhone with ZiPhone 2.4 GUI (Mac)

Posted February 13, 2008 at 7:50pm 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 and 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

Step One
Download ZiPhone from: here

Step Two
Double click ZiPhoneOSX-2.4.tbz on your desktop to extract the ZiPhoneOSX 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 3.9 or 4.6 BL iPhone you can now activate, jailbreak, and unlock! Just simply check the Activate, Jailbreak, and Unlock 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 Seven
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:

The unlocking sequence stops right when ziphone says the iphone enters recovery mode. What do i do? ive tried to right click the restore button and restore the iphone with the correct firmware but nothing seems to work. and when i do restore it with the right firmware i lose the connection to ziphone so i have to start all over again and then it goes back into recovery mode and just stays there even though i just restored it with the firmware. help me please!

so i did this process because i'd rather stick with 1.1.3 than 1.1.4 and now i get this odd problem about downloading from installer...i don't know what to do because i can't uninstall or reinstall either - the exact message i get is "ERROR Package Download Failed" but i connect no problem to my wifi and my phone can make calls... anybody got an idea what's up?

With an OTB 1.1.3 is it necessary to put the phone into recovery mode? I thought ziphone 2.4 puts the phone into recovery mode for you. I have unlocked one phone otb 1.1.3- ran ziphone 2.4 with itunes running in the background. Everything works fine. Did I just get lucky? Planning on unlocking another one tomorrow.

@oneangrytoast at gmail dot com: Take a closer look at the email notifications you're getting of new comments. It's a link in there to unsubscribe from this tutorial. I just did it myself.
Trivels - February 27, 2008 at 5:36am
Murillo, you need a restoring with a previosly FIRNWARE of the Iphone. Found an 1.1.2 ORIGINAL software, install it with Itunes, and then lunch the Ziphone as you did it last days! !:))))

Hello guys, Tks for the tutorial! But I have a problem, everytime I try to do the run the ZiPhone the program stops when it says "Getting into the recovering mode" and doesn't go on. Does anyone have the same problem? Should I turn down the iTunes when it starts by itself? I am not doing that. Thank you very much for the help!!!!

I went from a 1.1.2 that was previously unlocked and updated from a 1.0.2. After much consideration I went for it. I updated to 1.1.3 ran ziphone and after a few minutes I was unlocked and jailbroken. Ziphone did say there was one error but not sure what was wrong. Everythng works. I did have to clear that cache in the installer cause it initially would not let me install anything. I was getting "Error downloading file" I think that was the error name..anyway thanks all is good on 1.1.3

wow trivels, thanks for the amazing response time! ok the locate me function in google maps had no issues before, nor does it now, but the locateMe app that i just got from installer is wayyy off mark, as is navizon plugin (even moreso, actually). bigger issues at hand: my earphone, headphones AND speaker phone do not work for phone calls. and youtube isnt playing vids. helpppp!
Trivels - February 22, 2008 at 1:05pm
The error is that the LOCATE ME in google maps doesn't work. From the installer you can found a patch called LOCATE ME that resolve the problem ! ! Everything is OK now ! !
