what's the root filesystem key?
Whens iTunes 7.7 going to have a download?What's the point of Jailbreaking it if you can't put the installer on it. And it's good for downgrading the baseband.The New Ziphone that's coming out.They are taking extra steps to prevent unlock.
God those screenshots makes wanna upgrade my iphone badly. i have stopped using installer and stuff so i dnno, will i lose all my email settings/ phone contacts? and to upgrade do i just use the file steve has posted for us? this all sounds risky, i guess i can wait 11 more days :D
From El Salvador, Central America... Zibri, I'm with you man! And of course always trusting in the Community... I'll wait.
zibri, does this mean that mobiledevice interface has not been changed with new firmware? and iPhone 3G will use the same interface?
im not going to upgrade until he releases the offical software
Can I download the preliminary version of ZiPhone somewhere to try the 2.0 beta8 version?Thanks......
SomeOne would have to put sll the right frameworks to make installer work on 2.0's but the people who creates apps will try to make it work on 2.0
zibir, any info on the blueooth stack for external GPS on the iphone 2G???thnx
oh my God great job.awesome work!!
oh my God great job.Awesome work
yeah but how do you get this special carrier on 2.0
"kraussco said...yeah but how do you get this special carrier on 2.0"That's not a carrier its the zibri's wi-fi network name!Go on Zibri
Zibri, how can I restore my iPhone to 1.1.4 from the latest Beta 5A345 nothing seems to work! I can restore to this firmware but cannot downgrade...Guess that will teach me to be so quick 8-)
You rock Zibri, thanks for all your support and your long breath with this topic. We all rely on you and your skills! :-)
what's my experience to hack mine for two weeks. it's awesome. but somehow it causes some problems. I hate to restore, reinstall it again. plus, I just return to original setting, and wait for 2.0 firmware. no more hacking. it's sick. I am sorry to say that. but app store will solve all of problems.
To ERK: I had the same problem. Downgrade to 1.1.3 first. From there, update (not restore) to 1.1.4. After that, you can use ziphone to unlock, activate and jailbreak. Hope this helps :)
Google: CaptionCrunch (Carrier String)
Guys, believe in community and stop using Apple bugs...Good job Zibri, hope we find a good alternative for the future and why not Android on iPhone 1 and 2 ?Have a good day dude,Cheers,Carmin.
Well, got 1.1.4 reinstalled finally!However the new baseband is 04.05.04 and cannot be unlocked and non of the existing unlockers will revert to a previous version.So, until a working unlocker comes out - dont even try it.
Good job Zibri!I installed beta 8, how can I activate it?Thanks!
Good job!I update to 2.0 beta 8 how can I activate it?Thanks!

MihajlovicDid you try DFU ModeZiphone patched by kiremk. I don't think it would work
im on the same boat and it will only allow me to restore to beta 8,pls Zibri help us, and tell us how to restore back to 1.4 thanks
zibri i'm gonna buy an iphone on july 11th am i gonna wait long time to jailbrake it???
Forcing 2.0 firmware into DFU mode I found real trial and error, and even when finally done I could only restore back to 1.1.4 using iTunes 7.6.3bf (mac and pc links on TPB) and running it in StorActivationMode, then I had to force the phone out of recovery mode.However, even though the phone is now 'working' the baseband is set to 04.05.04_G and no current hacks can unlock this, so therefore you wont have and signal, just a glorified iPod.Hopefully someone will release an update that will unlock this baseband soon, as I (and many others) are now without a phone.
benjammin193i HAVE just tried to use dufu mode for several times but nothing still in recovery mode it just blinked and nothing happened. I am woried
erkPlease give details how you done it how you restore it to 1.1.4 ???
sweeeeeeeeeet lord I got it.my firm is 1.3 and working with signal and jailbroken heheheh sweeeeeeeeeet
I have succeeded to restore it to 1.1.4 but it is still in recovery mode and i cant get it out of recovery mode NEED HELP BY THE WAY NOW I AM GETING AT THE END OF RESTORE PROCES TO 1.1.4 AN EROR CALLED 1015 BUT IT IS ON 1.1.4 so help please i have done it i am on 1.1.4 but still i cant get out from recovery mode- by the way how i done it - wile i was truing to restore it i have pressed power and hold button until power went down then i realized the power button but held down the home button while holding the home button i have connected and disconected the usb cable from iphone then suddenly a white screen appeared and i pressed the restore button to 1.1.4 and it begun to instal it as i told at the end of restore proces we get the error 1015 and i cant get out from recovery mode that is all Please Help!!!
here is how I restore from 5a345 beta8.1. Turn the iPhone ON2. CONNECT it to the dock3. Make sure iTunes is open so you'll know when it enters DFU mode4. HOLD the Power/Sleep-Wake button AND the Home button for 10 seconds5. RELEASE only the Power/Sleep-Wake button and continue to hold the Home button6. WAIT until iTunes recognizes the phone in DFU Restore mode (in Windows a bubble pops up saying it recognized new hardware "DFU Mode" or something to that effect)The last step may take SOME TIME, like, say, even 60 seconds or so. The screen should be OFF (black), if you see the "Connect to iTunes" logo, START OVER. It may take a few tries to do the steps just right, just reboot (hold both Power/Sleep-Wake AND Home until the Apple logo appears and the phone turns back on) then try again. once on DFU mode, try to restore to 1.3 or 1.4 of course using the shift key, that way you could pick your firmware, after that you may get an error from itunes, dont worry just use a tool called ZiPhoneGUI - patched by kIREmK......... and this will downgrade your baseband and then do a regular restore with itunes, then use zhipone to jailbreake. sorry for my english.Downgrade Baseband
Ok i have news for you I do not know how but i tried enter in normal mode option on ziphone and it succeed i am surprised because i tried it a few times before it didn't work but know i have done it i am out of recovery mode on 1.1.4 iphone i have jailbrokened with ziphone i just need to erase my base band from 2.0 beta 8 and i will true to do it -and hopefully succeed Zibri i am looking forward to yours new ziphone because IT IS THE BEST!!!!
Hi again i have managed to downgrade 2.0 beta 8 baseband by using instructions on this link http://iphone-virginizer.blogspot.com/2008/05/how-to-erase-any-baseband.html now i have my iphone 1.1.4 in every way bye and zibri hurry up :) we want to se ziphone 3.1 because we believe in you just dont stop!!!!!!
will all the kool new games be working on 1.1.4 ?? will they be available on the installer?
ey, so you can downgrade the new iPhone so you can unlock it and jailbrake it and just use like that without the 2.0?? If will the GPS work????
do you still need a 3g iPhone I can send you one when they come out? Let me know if you dont have one allready
erk, I'm not sure how you did it but I can't get back to 1.1.4 no matter how hard I try. I've got an iPod touch by the way. Can you help at all? Thanks
so, I went to www.ziphone.org and clicked "Click here to Download ZiPhone (Main)" about a million times and it just ends up in www.ziphone.org. The one time that it did go to to another page when I clicked the picture for the windows download it leads me back to your main page... with no downloads.Now after doing this repeatedly for about FOUR HOURS I've decided that cursing God won't help me and neither will stupid YouTube. So, I am asking you for help. I tried the irc.ziphone.org page but it lead me to an error page. So I ask you to message me back. Someday. Hopefully before I throw my iTouch at a semi truck.
does thus apply to ALL previous versions of the iPhone? Will this have any effect what so ever on the previous 1.1.4 16gig iPhone?
How an earth I am gonna get my iPhone to DFU properly. I mean iFuntastic and Pawnage both claim, that my iPhone is in DFU, but iPhone says:"An iPod has been detected, but could not be identified properly. Please disconnect and reconnect the iPod, then try again."How do I proceed?
To diegog2hey... if you are talking with zibri about an iphone 3g..i don't think he will need one because i think he will be the first one to get an iphone in rome ... or he will send some one to bring him one..

Hi Zibri and many thanks for your work :-)I have a question about the community.iPhone is running OSX mobile, why don't crack it and give it free to install anything provided by the community or just create a new installer version running on the computer (Windows, mac and linux)for homebrew application ?If firmware 2.0 is not necessary and don't give bug corrections, i will stay on 1.1.4, i like this community and hate Apple decisions, maybe one day a new BSD will running on this fabulous object...Have a nice day dude !Thanks,Carmin.
Well, we are about get a way to get Installer in 2.0 in the near future, right?
damn zibri you my hero im just waitting for you to make my next step on my iphone ...like the song follow the leader ...im wondering how long is gonna take you to jailbrake the new 2.0 firmware
YAYcongratsa few questions though..How do you get an iPhone without a contract? can you just go to an apple store and get it without signing a contract? THANKS LOADS
How can I upgrade if I am running Windows Vista? The iTunes 7.7 Beta Steve provided is only in .dmg format.
I'm scared to do any type of upgrades or hacks on my iphone. It's too expensive of a toy to take a chance with.ThanksJordan Fusion
Zi, I'm gifted to upgrade my iphone to the new version when it comes out AND for you to unlock it..Tell us and the new IPHONE'r what do to (besides D O N A T E -- which is a message to others)
Can the iphone 3G be jailbroken?
why would you want to jailbreak now that there is an sdk out. Most apps will be available for download now
im going on holidays two days after the new firmware release and wont have access to the internet there so im wondering when installer and cydia will come out for the 2 software so i can decide whether to upgrade or notThanks in advance
hi,I'm wondering if you can unlock the new 3g iPhonewith the ziphine that its out now? Just unlock without jailbraking it!!! And the new ziphineyou just jailbrake it???
i was damned stupid to install the latest beta.... i cannot manage to downgrade, neither with windows nor mac.please zibri, release the software if it works to unlock beta8.
whats DFU mode and how would you downgrade to 1.1.4? can someone please help me
Hey, Zibri! Can you or someone plz give me a link for the ipod touch 2.0 beta 8 download, that would be great. Thanks!
Hiiiii Zibri, your work has been of a great use on my iphone!!!! As we are near july 11, is it going to be possible to unlock the new iphone 3G to use it in any carrier??THANK U VERY MUCH!!!
zibri, irev says that will be IMPOSSIBLE to unlock/jailbrake iphone 3G with 2.0 firmware...he says that Chip ARM 1176JZF has bult in Trusted Computing capabilites...in few words he tell that jailbreak is not possible because there is a File Alteration Monitor that doesn't allow turning Read and Write OSX partitions.What do u think about those news?Thanx 4 all, man!!!
As long as I will be able to keep my U.S. imported iPhone unlocked, I do not care to much for the installer. Since I am sure there will be a lot if not more useful applications in the app store. Will it be possible to keep an unlocked 1st generation iPhone unlocked and still update to 2.0? That is the question for me!
Regarding Bro's comment about the (ARM 1176JZF chipset). This was the chipset of the original iphone. It has always been there. It just has been inactive (they haven't been using it). I have always suggested that things would get a lot tougher once they do this. This wouldn't make it impossible. Just really difficult especially since there hasn't been a lot of material published on breaking TrustZone. However, as everything goes, if there is a will there is a way. There are numerous papers published on how to exploit TPMs. ARM is no different. If ARM Trustzone becomes a problem, I would be more than happy to jump on board and provide wtvr I can. It would be awesome to crack hardware protection :D. *cheers to Zibri and all his amazing work.
Hi there.. I have just installed an app called Categories, so I can put apps in different categorie-"folders" on the springboard. but somehow, I can't move the icon for your blog.. And I don't have the january update so that I can "press and hold" to delete an icon. I have your blog on bookmark in safari, so I don't need the icon.. How can I delete icons without the "jiggle" function..?All the best..Knut.
messaging from Sydney (Australia), my step-daughter has asked an iphone for her birthday - since the 3G one is being launched here in 3 days, would I be able to downgrade and use ziphone to activate and unlock?
will iphone 2.0 support flash ?? and is there any ziphone to unlock the new version ?
Hi Zibri...I'm in a big problem... Unfortunately I upgraded my iPhone to firmware 2.0 and now I cant activate and unlock it or downgrade to older firmwares... I did all the ways I could, but I couldn't fix it. Can you send me your beta version?? I need it seriously... Please... You will rescue me...

zibri: any info on the blueooth stack for external GPS on the iphone 2G???david pogue reports that the GPS antenna is too small for it to be good enough for real time stuff, like navi apps! this would make the bluetooth stack for GPS mouse even more important, for the old and new iphone!!!
Hi all...I am waiting for the new iPhone to arrive on the 11th (already reserved and sure to receive it). Now..I am selling my original iPhone.I currently have 1.1.4 unlocked and jailbroken with ZiPhone. I would like to know from you guys how to install 2.0 and unlock it (not jailbreak, I don't care) on the original iPhone.I will wait for the official release of iTunes 7.7 and iPhone 2.0 just to be on the safe side (and not end up with a mess installing beta version of these programs).Could someone please tell me how to proceed?Do I have to revert to the "original" version of 1.1.4 (through a restore with shift key) before upgrading and then run ZiPhone, or can I download 2.0 from the internet and "restore" my iPhone directly with this version and then run ZiPhone?I think many persons will be in my same situation, so any help is greatly appreciated.Thank you in advance
Can I jailbreak the iPhone 3G by downgrading it to firmware 1.1.4?
Can I unlock the iPhone 3G by downgrading it to firmware 1.1.4 and than using ziphone?
I'm a bit confused about the whole 2.0 thin and Jailbroken Ipods/Iphones. If and when Zibri or the community release the Jailbroken 2.0 Firmware , will that mean we can use both installer and App store on the jailbroken ipod touch. Also is it ok to upgrade to the new Itunes or do not upgrade at all on Friday. Thanks in Advance !
i have just cracked my ipod touch today using the ziphone software and the ipod touch is crack with 1.1.4 firmware, there is an installer, but i want to know how do i get: Notes, Stock, Weather and Email to it.could someone please guide me to that, my ipod touch is a 8gbGO Ziphone! go!
Hey Zibri. I love your work - I have an iPhone 2g that I want to upgrade to 2.0 and then just unlock.The installer community has been good to us, but let's face it a lot of those apps crash, hog resources, and are one by one no longer becoming free anyway. I embrace the App Store with open arms.So the real question is are you going to release unlock for 2.0 firmware or not? I think 50% of us don't care less about jailbreak anymore, we just want unlock. Call us sheep :)
I agree with rustys post above, my iphone is jailbroken and has installer but I have never installed anything mainly because most of them aren't good or they end up messing the phone up. I just want an unlock program for 2.0 :-)
Please release a tool or tell us how to go from the leaked 2.0 back to 1.1.4 please!!!!!!!!!!
Zibri,Hey men how are you?, thanks by all that you do for this community, i had a request for you, can you publish the preeliminary version that can downgrade the 04.05.04_G baseband??? that is because there are people who need it, jejeje, i was one of them!!!!!
Hi Zibri! How do you put the "ZiTouch" in the place of "iPod" ? Did you use something that replace Make it Mine ?
how do u take screen shots like tht
is zibri alive ???

I wish to Upgrade, what should I do?
Zibri, whaddup?i was too quick about the 2.0 upgrade...jus lke many others, i upgraded to 2.0...IS there a process to get my iphone back to where i could unlock and have fun again?peace....and thanx for ZiphoneTHIS GOES TO ANYONE ELSE TOO...

I got to the post too late and did the 2.0 UPDATE on my iPhone!!! Is there anything possible i can do to reverse this so that i can use my phone again???? Please help me out!
- I wish I had read this before upgrading to 2.0! Can someone help. I have an unlocked 1.1.4 and was working perfectly until yesterday when I stupidly accepted 2.0 upgrade from itunes. Phone was dead.I have gone through many steps largely using Ziphone and have now got to the point where the phone comes on, I can access Wifi etc.. but no phone network. I have the following details:version 1.1.3 (4A93)Model MA712LLModem Firmware 04.05.04_GI have attempted Reset Network, Reset All etc...... and have just done a Ziphone - e, Ziphone -D, 1.1.3 and have the same problem
Hi Zibri & everyone.Ok so I have the IPOD TOUCH, and i downloaded the stupid 2.0 upgrade and after that I came here and saw your post saying not to and now I am doomed. I have tried downgrading my Itunes back to 7.5 but after I reinstall it and try to open it says that it cant read my library.Xx ( not sure what the extenetion was on the end of library just an example.) So I just installed the newer version again. How can I get itunes to read my itunes libray and how to get my Ipod touch back on 1.1.4. The newer version is nice with all the apps but I miss beaing able to change all my icons, the background color and everything else. If there is going to be a new hack to jailbreak into the new 2.0 version can I have it please if it would be easir for me to do it that way. Anyone please help me.ThanksKorla
ziphone is really good...but i really want to try the 2.0 version...what should i do?? please help me!

well my 3g iphone version is 2.0
oh yes firmware is 1.45.00
I upgraded to 2.0 seeing how ziphone has rolled with all of the past upgrades and now i read "dont upgrade". Plz don't let us down ziphone... help us crack 2.0 as well, we need our freedom and all of the BETTER third party software that apple does not provide. thank you and we'll be waiting.
DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR IPHONE. I WAS TOO LATE TO THE BLOG AND MUST EXPRESS MY WOES. IT'S OBVIOUS THAT APPLE IS ONLY TRYING TO SALE LAME 3RD PARTY APPS FOR RIDICULOUS PRICES. I AM UNABLE TO RETURN TO PREVIOUS SETTINGS OR DOWNGRADE. I WILL WAIT FOR THE NEW JAILBREAK...
