    My co-worker wants me to jailbreak his iPhone. (only jailbreak, he is on AT&T)

    Is there any reason not to use Ziphone or iliberty to do this? I have used both of these programs to unlock iphones in the past, and I am aware of the bootloader issue, but I will not be unlocking his, only jailbreak, so that is not a problem.

    I am more comfortable with these programs that I would be with the pwnage tool, so I would like to use one of these if there is no reason not to. (probably ziphone, because I liked it better than iliberty+)

    Thanks for your help!

    I would recommend iLiberty instead of ziphone as you always know exactly what iLiberty is going to do to your phone unlike ziphone - I have to be honest I have head that ziphone MAY download your bootloader even when you ONLY jailbreak so I would stay away to be sure.

    Rememeber to select Installer from the "advanced" tab in iLiberty. And I would also recommend to avoid youtube issues on official activated phones that you restore and remove the SIM from the phone so it does not activate and then jailbreak and put the SIM back in otherwise a real itunes activation MAY conflict with a hacked one.

    Definitely stay away from Ziphone. iLiberty and Pwnage are great. If you're on windows, I'm not sure I would recommend Winpwn until its out of Beta.
