    No, I've found the same issue. Doesn't appear to be a GUI included in that bundle, just a terminal app, an .exe and some other files. I just ended up using 2.3 this morning which worked fine for me.

    EDIT: everything's coo..i forgot it was called 'Mobile Finder" and not just Finder lol.

    yea guys that bundle i dont' think can be used for mac


    on the ziphone website, theres a link for a mac gui...when u download it, it will have a txt extension. Delete that extension and theres another extension there (.tbz) Keep that as the extension and it will make it a zip file, unzip and BAM the app is there. I just used it to jailbreak and so far so good.

    It took under a minute to jailbreak but in the ziphone log, it said it turned up 1 Error. So far i've been using it for 10 mins and haven't seen anything wrong. Some themes don't work tho.

    Also, where is the Finder app in the Installer??
