    Hi all

    I am very new to this ... but so far i have jailbreaked[?] my OTB UK iPhone and it works beautifully. I used ZiPhone 2.4 for the jailbreak/activate/unlock (i'm using on Orange for the time being).

    The only downside is that it's not on 1.1.3 ... what is the best way to get up to 1.1.3?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes I would like to know this too? I'm thinking upgrade via iTunes then unlock with ziphone? Can anyone confirm this? :)

    Well, this is what I ended up doing ...

    1. I followed the ZiPhone troubleshooting guide for restoring ...
    2. Exited iTunes, connected phone, and ran ZiPhone -D
    3. When it said 'Done!' I ran iTunes ... it recognised I was in recovery mode and said I needed to 'Restore and Update' ... So I did.
    4. It downloaded, unpacked, installed, verified ... and then ... said 'Error 1601: Unable to restore.'
    5. My heart sank :(
    6. I wondered what I was going to tell my wife as she had brought me this now brick as a present.
    7. I looked at the iphone screen it was just bright white. Don't panic!

    So, I re-read the ZiPhone troubleshooting guide and found the hardware recovery mode. The hold buttons down method. This looked promising ... this does a restore (apparently) to the original version and not an update.

    So I watched and waited ... 5 hours later, well, that's what it felt like; in reality it was about 5 minutes later, my phone burst back into life and iTunes told me that my iPhone had been restored to its factory settings. Phew!!!

    So now I had a locked, unactivated iPhone again ... well in for a penny in for a pound ... so I started the jailbreaking/unlocking/activating again using ZiPhone 2.4

    And ... 4minutes later ... to my amazement, not only is my iPhone alive and working again ... it's now 1.1.3!!

    YouTube working ... check. Google maps with it working out whee I am working ... check. Wifi, phone, syncing ... check check check ...

    Quite amazing. I don't know if what I did was the right way, but it seems to have had the desired effect!?!?

    Now I just need for them to bring out 1.1.4 tomorrow and I'm in trouble again.

    ZiPhone does seem to be amazing!

    Should I be worried about the bootloader being on 3.9? I'm not 100% sure it is, but I saw it flash past when I was watching ZiPhone do it's stuff ... it said BootLoader: 3.9_M3S2 ... what is the disadvantage of it not being on 4.6?

    I did:
    Used option+restore in itunes to 1.1.3
    Quit Itunes when it asks to activate the phone
    Use ziphone 2.4 (with the -a -j -u switches) to get the phone running
    Open itunes again, choose to setup as a new phone (Don't restore a previous backup)
    resync your music/cals/contacts/mail accounts etc

    If you do this you will have 1.1.3 firmware with all functions, EXCEPT googlemaps locating/GPS function. Unlocking 1.1.3 means using the 1.1.2 version of the modem firmware - which does not support the GPS function directly. However you can install navizon or locateme from installer and get the function back.

    i would also like to know what happens if ziphone have downgraded our bootloader to 3.9 from 4.6, will it make much difference?
