iPhone 1.1.4 upgrade hasn’t been a trouble-free update for many. There really is no good reason to update to 1.1.4 at this time, probably SDK might need it in the future. So, you accidentally upgraded to 1.1.4, now what? How do we get back to a much better firmware?
Download 1.1.3 / 1.1.2 firmwares from this link.
I have followed these steps on a 4.6 BL iPhone as well as 3.6 BL iPhone. If you have used IPSF like unlock before (Gunlokc/iJailbreak/ZiPhone), then you can still follow these steps.

Your 1.1.4 …

Read my horror story with iNdependence on a 1.1.4 updated 16GB iPhone. Don’t use it and don’t upgrade to 1.1.4 yet. 
iNdependence released an Activation / Sim Unlock solution for iPhone 1.1.4 firmware! That was fast, though 1.1.4 got not-so-interesting updates ( a probable SDK support maybe ). This version uses gunlock sim unlocking solution from Geohot 🙂 They claim this tool to be a much more efficient solution compared to Zibri’s offerings.

Download iNDependence v1.4b5 for your Macs!
– iTunes 7.6.1 Support
– Added SIM unlocking on firmware 1.1.4 (using gunlock)
– Changed …

Apple released firmware 1.1.4 with no major upgrades which means it is intended to support the forthcoming SDK. For all those waiting to buy an iPhone might want to buy an iPhone right away cos’ we can still get iPhone 1.1.3 OTB and once 1.1.4 OTB iPhones start shipping, that may pose problems.
Don’t Upgrade to 1.1.4 if you need an interruption free iPhone Usage (Apps and Stuff!)!!

Zibri’s Jailbreak works just fine but itcannot be Activated, so non-ATT users might want to wait a while before updating. All in all, another …

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 …

This is by far the best, most efficient unlock EVER! Buy a phone from an Apple store, download iJailbreak on any Mac in the Apple store and unlock it then and there!! It can never get better and easier! I tried this unlock on different bootloaders and basebands ( 4.6 BL. 3.9 BL, 04_01_13G, 04_02_13G and 04_03_13G basebands).

The best thing being – it brought a no-wifi, no-radio DEAD bricked iPhone to back in life in about 2.5 minutes!! I spent 10 hours on the dead iPhone with no success until …

Update : A much faster easier solution for Mac users can be found here. Windows users may resort to ZiPhoneGUI.
I am back after spending 4 hours on the entire process (which includes some hits and misses! Which means, you no longer have to figure out the right steps/combinations!!). Now the process is trimmed down to much lesser time and the best part being : No command line hackery!
All you need is an iPhone (OTB 1.1.2/1.1.3 BL 4.6), Mac (preferable) / Windows, Firmware files (1.1.2, 1.1.3 ipsws), courage to try this …

1.1.3, Games, iphone, iPhysics »

iPhysics Gaming engine is updated with a flicker free version. That makes it a very good platform for gaming! Make sure you turn the compatibility mode ‘On’ under ‘options’ in iPhysics to ensure smooth play 🙂 iPinball is my favorite game in iPhysics. It is a flawless port to the iPhone and I have managed around 50,000 in iPinball. Challenge me with your best score! Background sound may be irritating at times, sound effets are good though. You find the settings under ‘Options’ in iPhysics.

I had to buy a new iPhone OTB 1.1.2 with modem firmware 04.02_13G (week 52) to test a clean update to 1.1.3 . I have used a MacBook, OTB 1.1.2 iPhone, Cingular SIM(no iPhone contract), iTunes 7.6, iNdependence 1.3.2b and lot of enthusiasm!! I have heard about different reports and I wanted to check them out. Indeed it was one smooth upgrade to 1.1.3, thanks to Nate for his decision 😉
As stated, we need to start off with a Jailbroken 1.1.2 / 1.1.1 iPhone. OTB 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 iPhones …

Last week has been a memorable one as far as 1.1.3 iPhones is concerned. We have heard of disputes amongst the developers,err hackers!! Everything narrowed down to copyright issues as far as Erica’s note is concerned. Some members of the Dev team and Elite team were in disagreement over the release of 1.1.3 jailbreak. Anyways, NerveGas breaks the news on a perfect Thursday 🙂 The entire jailbreak process is touted to take about half an hour if not more and the interesting part being : it is currently a Windows …
