    hmm thats strange

    it has worked for me and it runs very well. Try a restore into 1.1.4, then run ziphone. also when u use ziphone make sure you eject your iphone/touch before using it. if that doesn't work id recomend another method. Ipodttouchmaster's method works pretty good but takes a little while. His method can be found here http://youtube.com/ipodtouchmaster top 1. Hope this helps!

    ziphone problems

    I have tried ziphone and have a few issues. The download goes perfect and the installer is on my ipod but the this issue. When i try to download some programs it says they only work with 1.1.3? I have version 1.1.4 and this is supposed to work. I can't download customize or summerboard and several other programs. Anyone have any thoughts?

    FIRST...Check that new versions of summerboard and installer have not been released (using installer.app on you ipod touch). I had a new version of both that needed to be updated today. Then try to install them.

    If you still have the same problem installing 1.1.3 apps then there is a workaround. As a temporary fix what you need to do is add


    to the installer app as a new source. After your sources have been refreshed look for '1.1.4 Compatibility Patch' and install it. What this program does is fool installer into thinking you have 1.1.3 installed (it does this by changing a preferences file). You can then install the programs you need. When you have finished REMEMBER to uninstall '1.1.4 Compatibility Patch' using the installer app to put everything back as it was.

    Good Luck.

    The same happened to me. Here's what I did. I restored my ipod touch to 1.1.4 using itunes. Put your ipod into restore mode. When itunes tells you that your ipod must be restored, click ok, then eject the ipod from itunes BUT DO NOT CLOSE ITUNES!. Now run ziphone and it should work fine. Remember to use the jailbreak option!

    The cleanest way to jailbreak, in my opinion, is to get things back to "stock" first.

    First, disable ALL syncing. ALL OF IT. and ten do a final Sync. Your iPod Touch should have no music, photos, etc. on it.

    Next, I downloaded the v1.1.4 firmware file and did a <shift>+Restore. When prompted, I selected iTunes to treat the iPod as new. The restore completed, and I was nicely at v1.1.4 with a completely clean iPod Touch including the "January Update" applications I purchased.

    Next, I downloaded ZiPhone-Win-v2.5 and ran it, selecting nothing more than the "Jailbreak" button. After a very short while, the Jailbreak was complete, and I had an Installer icon.

    Since then, I've re-installed a number of apps, and re-enabled Syncing. I do not have any purchased iTines music, only my own MP3 rips, so i cannot say if they would play or not, but so far, everything works as the "stock" version worked, just with enhancements.

    My suggestion is to get it to "stock" as bet as you can before Jaibreaking, then do the Jailbreak.

    if u install 1.1.4 and jailbreak it, to instal apps that only work on 1.1.3 add this source http://blazeco.info/blaze.xml. once you add that, go to all packages and instal 1.1.3 svpatch. that changes your version tag to 1.1.3. after installing your 1.1.3 only apps delete the svpatch and 1.1.4 is your version tag again.

    tip: it says to reboot your iphone/ ipod touch after installing the patch and uninstalling it, actually do so.

    Launch installer app on your iPhone/touch. Tap the SOURCES button (bottom right), then tap the EDIT button (top right), then click ADD (top left). Now type in the address and press OK. The sources will refresh automatically.

    www.dlubbat.com and add his source. Download Customize Modded, install that Patch, and customize works. (NO TAPPING TO OPEN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    I initially intended to update my January (1.1.3) 8 Gb Touch, but the update failed and screwed the device, so I had to do a full restore.

    On the bright side, after the restore, ZiPhone 2.5c worked like a charm.

    Try ZiPhone 1. (Google for a link, I'm too lazy to look for one :p)
    If you're on a Mac, go seek a Windows computer of some form. (It's command line and DLL's, it should in theory work on any recent Windows)
