And I swear I will do no harm...

Some facts:

  • ZiPhone never bricked an iPhone not even during first personal tests.

  • ZiPhone actually repaired many previously bricked iPhones.

  • 99% of "bugs" I have been reported are for the same reason.

  • ZiPhone never touches internal security data. -i option just fakes them.

You can restore the phone to "refurbished" state just issuing:
ziphone -e

then ziphone -D and do a full restore to any os. (thieves, you are warned!)

Some common mistakes:

iTunes should not be killed. ZiPhone is against violence :)
and just ignores it and it's helper.

OSX users often have vmware running.
ZiPhone and iTunes must run on the same OS.
When doing a full restore with -D option, set
the phone as a new phone in iTunes and sync back
your data. That's the most common mistake.
The reason: data backed up from previous
jailbroken iPhones is wrong for a real 1.1.3 OS.
When you open Installer for the first time,
refresh sources, then install BSD Subsystem
from the System category before installing anything else !
About the "low space issue", there is a utility
you can find in Installer that can move the
application directory to the second iPhone
partition thus allowing you to have has many
application your brain could bear :)
If you want to have the Z icon back after deleting,
there is a 'secret' option that restores only the icon
hint: it was meant for test)
The options of ZiPhone are case sensitive! I did that
on purpose to allow people to focus before issuing
commands and read the usage.

Enough said for now,
