ZiPhone – Second Easiest Jailbreak Yet

hacks (source)

Ok Folks – Patrick mentioned it earlier and I decided to give this method a go. Honestly, this *next to the tiff exploit for 1.1.1* is the easiest jailbreak yet. Seriously. I kept all my springboard links, and everything. No restores required. Total time from start to finish was less than 5 minutes.

So – in case you’re wondering here’s what I did while starting from an NON-jailbroken 1.1.3 iPhone. (Lots of sarcasm to follow)

First – head on over to http://www.iphone-elite.org/ and pick up a copy of ZiPhone. If you can’t find it – you shouldn’t even bother trying to use it.

Second, and this is cruicial (ok not really) put the ZiPhone directory directly on your C: Drive. Basically this just makes the command line bit a little easier to do – but it’s up to you.

Connect your iPhone to iTunes. Plug the little white cable thingy into your iPhone (on the bottom).

Let iTunes do it’s sync/backup thing just in case something goes horribly wrong. Once the sync completes, leave your iPhone connected and click start > run and type: cmd to open a command window. In that command window do the following:

cd C:\ZiPhone

C:\ZiPhone>ziphone -j

At this point you should see the following:
Searching for iPhone…
Please power off the iPhone, then hold the home button
and connect to dock to enter recovery mode.

Nothing tough right? So put your iPhone into recovery mode. Press and hold the Home button and plug the iPhone into your computer. Keep holding the Home button until you see the little plug/iTune logo. Once that’s done you should see:

Working…
Please wait 45".
Done!

When your iPhone reboots – You’ve got Jailbreak. At the download link you found earlier is a list of all the command line switches. There’s one for unlock as well. I’m an AT&T customer so I didn’t try that one. If you do – let me know how it goes for you!!

THANK YOU ZIBRI and the rest of the folks that contributed to this jailbreak. It is greatly appreciated!!!!
