NOTE**: This command will automatically activate, jailbreak, and unlock. If necessary and able it will also change your bootloader to the 3.9-fakeblank Bootloader. If you don't want to unlock just drop the -u and iPlus will only activate and jailbreak!

Step Six
The program will then put your iPhone into recovery mode. Once it is successfully in recovery mode you will be asked to wait 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

I started iPlus 2.0b as shown but everything hangs at the "Downloading payload to iPhone" stage. Any ideas how long it normally takes to get to the Step 6 window?

Anyone have any idea if the pending software update will require a new jailbreak?

@Michalis aka whiner, Actually I did say something constructive. I said: ZiPhone. Did I go too fast for you? Next time I will try and draw you a picture. Maybe you will recall that there was a problem with iPlus, but if they didn't include pictures you may have missed it.

One word: ZiPhone Two words: It works. I will go back to laughing now.

Sorry, adding the problem again in case you cannot find the original post: How do I get iTunes to recognise my iPhone again. After attempting to run iplus but something happened because it never finalized the scrip, iTunes says a resource is missing and therefore cannot reinstall 1.1.4 Stuck now with an iPhone with a screen showing the Apple logo and the revolving install logo. Can't reboot. Can't revoke. Can't do anything. Tried holding in Sleep/Wake and Back buttons screen goes black. After a few seconds I get is a red field at top and bottom of screen with aviega iPlus 2.0 etc etc. But then I am back at the same screen I started with. Rerunning the install scrip does not seem to overwrite either. HELP anyone?

Just wanted to add another positive (when I was researching the method I would use to unlock, activate, and jailbreak I would get nervous seeing all the negatives so I'm posting to offer a little reassurance). I just used iPlus on two iPhones. The longest part was downloading the restore package via iTunes. After that it was literally 11 minutes each and I was plugging my T-Mobile SIM card in. I restored to 1.1.4 (even though otb they already were 1.1.4 - just wanted to be safe). The restore was the hardest part to figure out - didn't realize I had to do something special on the phone (FYI to those like me - you have to plug the phone into the computer with iTunes running and even if iTunes recognizes the phone press and hold the HOME and POWER buttons, after 10 seconds let go of the POWER button, but keep holding HOME until iTunes says it detects an iPhone that needs to be restored). Once the restore was complete (just took a couple minutes after the 15 minute download - much faster on the second phone), then I did like the instructions said and ran the command with -u and 11 minutes later I was in! I've surfed the net and made some phone calls and as I type this I'm waiting for iTunes to finish syncing my music and movies. WOO HOO! Thanks SO much to all you great coders out there - I'm envious to the nth degree and just as appreciative!

Here's another option I found on the Apple Forums. Again, enter it into Terminal on the iPhone. chmod u+s /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/MobileMailSettings.bundle/MobileMailSettings

I'm 1.1.2 OTB unlocked with independence. Uptadted to 1.1.3 and unlocked with Ziphone. Updated to .1.1.4 with iTunes 7.6 and unlocked with Independence 1.4Beta5. Everything works fine except the INSTALLER: I loaded it with Independence but when I try to install or uninstall something, I find the error: "main script execution failed!". Please help! Any Ideas? I did use Independence to unlock 1.1.4 because I did not want to dowgrade the baseband. Thanks!!!!!
