ZiPhoneGUI – Activate, Jailbreak and Unlock 4.6 BL iPhones for Windows Users

14 February 2008 94 Comments

UPDATE : Download ZiPhone Latest Release for Windows. A Mac version of the same can be had here.

ZiPhone GUI is built by i.unlock.no which is based on GeoHot’s unlock script which was generalized by Zibri 🙂 ZiPhoneGUI is for Windows users while Mac users have a better application in the form of iJailbreak. Talk about hackers/developers but yeah – they are the best! iPhone Devs have been keeping mum so far but hey, this method works the best!

Unlock option works with only 1.1.2 and 1.1.3 OTB iPhones and that makes sense cos’ we already have solutions for 1.0.2 and 1.1.1 iPhones. Activate and Jailbreak option works with any version of iPhones. So no more oktoprep->downgrade->upgrade stuff which saves us lot of time and better yet : a much more efficient solution!


Download this application from a fast download mirror. Happy unlocking!! Do comment if you have any issues with bootloader or baseband and use this application at your own risk!!

    Hey Kiran after many hours I got my iphone back up and running with the help of iliberty+. I seem to have one little problem now. Everytime i change my settings it dose not seem to save. I read that it might be a bug with iliberty+ is there a fix for this or do you think I should try to restore and re-unlock again?

  • jehanzeb said:

    hi kiran,
    im using iliberty to unlock my phone and a little pop-up screen says wait while iliberty+ boots device ino recovery mode, it’ll take a few seconds, but ive been waiting for more than 20 minutes. the status bar’s still at 0%!
    any suggestions?

  • jehanzeb said:

    it also says if the device times out you will recieve further instructions, and the bottom status bar said time out in 45 seconds (which never happened) and i pressed the power button and now that message has changed to ‘ready’, but the pop-up is still there…im really confused, pls help!

  • krishna said:

    and i cant even restore it now..itunes nor does iliberty+ recognise it nemore..can u plz help me wid this kiran..

  • Kiran said:

    krishna : I suppose you have a PC. I would strongly suggest you to restore to 1.1.4
    1)Turn your iPhone off.
    2) Hold Power and Home buttons till you see Apple logo and then let go off power button till you see a DFU icon on the screen).
    3) Restore to 1.1.4 and then try iLiberty+ latest version or ZiPhone for that matter cos’ ZiPhone’s bootloader effects are NOW reversible.

    Hi Kiran, can you pls help/confirm the following:

    I unlocked with Ziphone an 8gb Iphone OOT and now the firmware is 1.1.2.

    I would like to know (step by step if possible 🙂 you can email me if you want):

    1. How can I update the firmware to 1.1.4 (via Itunes??? how??)
    2. How can I unlock it again to use it with Tmobile (shall I use Ziphone 3.0 with the function “Do it all”???
    3. shall I have to consider something else??

    many thanks for your help !

    marian : Please follow my guide @ http://ilikemyiphone.com/wordpress/?p=221 Use iLiberty+ from the downloads section (http://ilikemyiphone.com/wordpress/?page_id=173) ZiPhone 3.0 doesn’t hurt either, you can use it too!

    Hi Kiran,
    I have just got a brand new iPhone 1.1.4 from US to India. i want to unlock it myself. So just wanted to confirm which of them would be the best way to Unlock it :- ZiPhone 3.0, iLiberty+ or iPlus ?? … i have all 3 of these softwares with me and I am working on a windows XP machine. Please suggest. Alos do i need to connect my iPhone ot iTunes before i unlock it or do i do it right away?


  • Kiran said:

    mickey: Connect iPhone to iTunes atleast once and click on cancel when asked to activate.

    Then you are better off using iLiberty+ : my personal favorite!

    Just freed up 5 cool & nice 1.1.4 8GB IPhones for some of my workmates and myself. I used my Windows XP notebook and Ziphone, it all went well through the process, and it is very easy and straightforward to do it out of the box. First, unpack your IPhone and register it normally via ITunes, no matter what you choose, just follow the wizard. (here we suppose you want to liberate it to use with carriers other than AT&T) after the IPhone is recognized by the OS (operatign system) as a device, close ITunes and launch ZIphone. Then select “DO IT ALL”, (it is recommended to keep the console ouput windows open) and wait around 5 minutes to complete the process. REMEMBER: DURING THIS PROCESS, DON´T BOTHER AROUND WITH THE IPHONE, DON´T UNPLUG IT, AND DO IT WITH YOUR COMPUTER PLUGGED TO EXTERNAL POWER (AVOID RUNNING ON BATERIES FOR LAPTOPS). IPHONES ARE NOT REALLY THAT PRONE TO GET “BRICKED” O DEAD, I THINK THIS IS MOSTLY DUE TO INCORRECT PROCEDURES OR PEOPLE THAT DON´T READ HOWTOS AND MANUALES BOTHERING AROUND WITH TECHNOLOGY. After this process finishes, the IPhone should reboot itself and you get a new fresh and running 1.1.4 Jailbreaked liberated IPhone. Then use the installer application to install software (you need WIFI for this, any nice mall should give you that, or go to your favorite coffee shop, and take one for my sake!!) Really, I am quite impressed with the IPhone, perhaps the best user experience in my life, after the Commodore Amiga 500 ;). Really, this is not THAT difficult to do. Just read the tutorials and the internet, and don´t forget visiting : http://www.ziphone.org
