Ziphone 2.0 – the ultimate tool

Posted in iPhone, tips&how to with tags , , , , on February 13, 2008 by despreiphone

Ziphone  work’s now with all the iphones out there and you can downgrade your bootloader from 4.6 to 3.9. Why would you want that? just because for the moment the only way you can have a fully unlocked  1.1.3 iphone is by having the bootloader 3.9.

On the other hand the pached bootloader that geohot is working on it will need the bootloader 4.6 to be uploaded on the iphone. so is a hard decision if we should go for the bootloader downgrade or just wait  for the new bootloader that will unlock the iphone for ever.

So the latest pack, available here , will have a mac version that can be used with terminal and a windows version useable by command prompt  and also a GUI one. So for windows user things are easy – just check the boxes you need and wait.

The mac users will still need to play around with the terminal. After downloading the soft (best is to put it on your desktop) change to the ziphone’ s directory as described in my previous post and drag the ziphone file on the terminal and hit enter. You should see:

ZiPhone v2.0 by Zibri.
Source code available at:

Usage: ziphone [-u] [-a] [-j] [-i imei]
                -b: Downgrade bootloader to 3.9 !
                -u: Unlock (4.6 AND 3.9 BL !)
                -a: Activate
                -j: Jailbreak
                -i: Change imei (4.6 AND 3.9 BL !)
                -v: Verbose boot (debug)
                -e: iErase BL 3.9 baseband

those are all the option available on ziphone. Choose the right options for you and use all the options at once.  just press arrow up in terminal and add the options.If you want to downgrade your bootloader use only the  -b option and after reboot you will have  an unlocked iphone.

How to ssh in to your iphone

Posted in tips&how to with tags , , , , on February 13, 2008 by despreiphone

You need to ssh in to you iphone for fixing problems, installing applications etc.Here is what you need to do to be able to access your  iphone: (this method should work for all iphones jailbraked  and unlocked with  ziphone or similar)NOTE: you must use the same wifi connection for both the phone and computer

 1. open installer, go to system category and install openssh

2. the most easy way to see your iphone files is to use a ftp client that supports sftp protocol – i like Cyberduck for mac and winscp for windows

3.after you downloaded your program go to the iphone  and under settings go to wifi tab and press the arrow next to your wifi network. You will see there your phone ip.

 4. open the program downloaded from the net and create a new sftp connection. at the adress enter your phone ip and at the user name use root password alpine.

5. after the connection establishes  you will see the files from your iphone.

iBriker/iFuntastic fix

Posted in iPhone, tips&how to with tags , , , , , on February 13, 2008 by despreiphone

After using ziphone to free your iphone it seems that ibriker it will not see it as a jailbroken one. If you still want to use iBriker here is what you have to do:        

Fast Way : Use SSH(SCP) to rename the file Services.plist, located here :/System/Library/Lockdown/Services.plistDownload this file: Rename it to Services.plist. Copy it to the iPhone into /System/Library/Lockdown/                    

Advanced way:Edit this file (use SSH/SCP to get it):/System/Library/Lockdown/Services.plistAdd the following section (in red square, and in bold) right below the not bold text (which you will have):  services.png 

After that restart the Iphone and Ibriker will work. thanks to Tinman
