Used ziphone "do it all": I thought once you restored it relocked?

    First off, I have 3.9bl so dont even bring up "you shouldnt have use ziphone."

    Anyway, a few weeks ago I unlocked my phone because I still have service with Tmobile. I basically just wanted to check it out, wasnt planning on staying with them. I restored my phone and went back with ATT.

    Tonight, out of curiosity, I pulled out my ATT sim and put in my Tmo sim, and surprisingly I got service. I thought a restore after using ziphone actually restored it to a locked condition?

    You shouldn't use ZiPhone because ZiPhone is badly written code that can break your phone either immediately or after you think it is ok it will mess it up regardless of the bootloader issue which doesn't matter in your case.

    If your phone suddenly stops working in a few weeks you know why that is! NEVER use ZiPhone its just not worth risking your expensive iPhone when there are safe alternatives available!

    To answer your question - iTunes DOES NOT change the baseband during a restore if it is the correct version for the firmware. So if your on 1.1.4 and unlock the baseband then restore will see your on the right baseband for 1.1.4 and won't overwrite it - you will always keep your unlock unless you update/restore to a newer firmware.

    Dude, Ive seen you beat the drum against ziphone a ton here. Please give it a rest. Not sure what you have against the guy/ppl that are responsible for it. TONS of ppl have used it and its worked fine.

    Lol your missing the point!

    I have nothing again Zibri or ZiPhone... it was the first method to unlock 4.6 bootloader phones that was easy and available to everyone.

    If it hadn't been released who knows IF the iPhone DevTeam would even have released pwnage by now!?

    The point I am making is that people on hackint0sh come on there and tell everyone about the problems they have with ZiPhone and most times those problems are NOT fixable.

    As I said it really is a case of taking a risk on something that has a higher chance of going wrong than any other method.

    You paid $250-$399 for an iPhone and if ZiPhone bricked your phone I know you would be really angry that you didn't use another method.

    I just want people to be aware that they are taking a chance they don't need to and IF it goes wrong it will be very bad!

    No one thinks it will happen to them but if it does they regret it.

    I would rather not be blamed for telling someone to use ZiPhone and then they had it brick their phone!

    I would rather NOT take the chance to regret it... but what you do is your own choice!
