- iErase BL 3.9 Baseband

If you have a 3.9 or 4.6 BL iPhone you can now activate, jailbreak, and unlock! Just simply select the Do it all! box. Then click the Start Process button. NOTE****: THIS OPTION WILL DOWNGRADE YOUR BOOTLOADER TO 3.9.

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:

Does anyone know what the refurbish option in zipphone does? My phone keeps rebooting and restoring it doesn't seem to work

Not sure if anyone else is having problems using ZiPhone, but should you have a problem getting past the recovery mode when you try use Ziphone. What you have to do is once you hit the "Start Process" and then quit ITunes right after. Then it will continue doing its magic and your good to go.... Took me a while to figure this out, so I wanted to make sure no else wasted theres......

I am facing one problem while installation. I have just installed 3 new game and now I am not able to find the installer option into main desktop may be because there is no space into desktop so I am not able to uninstall the game. Please help me to find out the solution.

For those having issues with downloading packages from installer. Make sure that you not only refreshes the sources but as well clear up the queue, that way everything gets clean and now u can get to download ur stuff again.

Anyway, I got this trick from mypdacafe.com forum so the credit should goes to them. Okay, 1st step put atnt sim card or any working simcard, digi, maxis (other than celcom) n power on.. Wait till got some signal bar / no network display.. 2. Go to setting, carrier. It will search for network. (if no carier show, go back home and wait a while). wait till all 3 network found. (leave the right tick to default "automatic") 3. Press power button (put iphone on standy NOT OFF). 4. Replace the simcard with celcom. (the msg no sim will pop up.. just ignore it and just press the power button to put it on standby mode again) 5. Press power button then 'slide to unlock' You will see the network list. Choose celcom and go home.. Never enter carrier menu again. Note: on step 5 you need to unlock (keying sim card pin) 1st if you enable the sim lock. Good Luck

Unbelievably easy process, this was a breeze just like one two three much respect to Zibri and everyone else out there making this unlock available for download for free!!

@wombat, im not sure that will be the case, but i've read that apple could easly check the serial number with the BL version and would know if you messed up with the iphone and brick your iphone or in the best case scenario just prevent you to upgrade. Maybe the iphone community can find a way to upgrade a downgraded BL iphone but still, makes it harder i guess. Any way, anyone know why that happened to me???
wombat - March 7, 2008 at 6:39am
@WillThaKid: there's a patch in installer called "Youtube Activator 1.1.4 " for that (Source=BigBoss)

@marco: you write "Now i probably wont be able to update to fw 2.0 when it comes out". What makes you assume this?

Hi i had an 1.1.3 16GB unlocked with ziphone (i dont remember what version). I tried to restore to 1.1.4 and i wanted to unlock my phone but keep BL 4.6, so i downloaded ziphone2.5c and ziphone2.3 so i could activate and jb with 2.5 and unlock with 2.3. I choose the second button, Dont Unlock, Activate and Jailbreak Only and then hit the Start Process Button. It ended up downgrading my BL to 3.9 and had an unlocked phone but not activated. I could see my provider's name on the top but had the slide for emergency screen. I even got an incoming call, I've never seen that. So i went to advanced options, selected activate and jailbreak and that took care of the problem. I now have an 1.1.4 unlocked phone with baseband 4.04.05, but i wanted to have BL 4.6 and baseband 4.02. Now i probably wont be able to update to fw 2.0 when it comes out. What did i do wrong so it doesn't happen again??? I guess ill have to sell this phone and get a new one and try the iplus method.

Works great! Yet one has to consider, that for the Unlock the original AT&T SIM-Card hast to be inserterd. I first restored to 1.1.4 from an unlocked OOTB 1.1.2 . Ziphine did not workl with the inserted Swisscom-SIM-Card.

OK, so I have a 1.1.3 OTB 16GB iPhone and a 1.0.2 OTB 8GB iPhone. I've unlocked and Jailbroken both using the Geohotz method a long time ago and the soft upgrade to 1.1.3. Will it be safe to restore both phones to 1.1.4 and use ZiPhone 2.5 to jailbreak and unlock? I don't want to do anything that will screw up my or my girlfriend's iPhone.

For those having issues with not being able to download anything via installer after jailbreaking ("cannot download package") you need to go to installer, go to sources at the top left click refresh and refresh all sources. That should do it...

Can this be completed if I don't have wifi or EDGE access?
MPR_GTI - March 3, 2008 at 12:59pm
