    So I've read bits and pieces about hacking our phones, but never really saw the point. That is until I played a hacked touch today, so now I'm all about it, never really knew so much was out there, apple really needs open up the playing field here.
    Anyways, I'm an AT&T customer, so need to worry about that. I'm at 1.1.4, which I heard isn't a big problem, some apps aren't 1.1.4 comp., but most work. I bought my phone about a month after launch and it's a 4gb model.
    Should I just use ziphone, which everyone seems to be into and I see iNdependence will work as well.
    Oh and I did do some searching, just confuses me more and more :( Just looking for complete idiot material here. Which program do I use, then were do I get my apps kind of idiot material, lol. Either way, thanks for all the help you've offered to everyone else and you might hopefully offer me.

    I've got like 30 pages open in firefox, all about this, still a little confused, but should be fine. I'm doing a fresh restore of 1.1.4 now, since most tutorials I've read ask you to do this. Once I get done with that, you run "do it all!" via the ZiPhone GUI.
    I'm just confused about the all the BSD and installer talk. Will I be able to do all this via the installer button that should show up on my main screen right? Anything else? A little nervous...

    Also, I did the restore, itunes icon and cable screen came up, I left it plugged in and it's now activated. Do I need to close itunes before it's activated and I run ZiPhone, or run ZiPhone after the phone has been activated via iTunes?

    Don't "do it all" !!!!

    Just use the "jailbreak" option on the ZiPhone GUI.

    Since you're AT&T, just jailbreak it.

    It's Installer app. Helps keep things clear. Installer app should show up on your screen. Make sure you have a good wifi connection, then install BSD Subsystem from the System apps. If you need to access your phone by sftp your user name is 'root' and password is 'alpine'.

    Yes, after the Restore is complete, quit iTunes.

    Ok, jailbreak option only. Sorry, a little confused on the restore part a teeny bit. Hit the option button, find 1.1.4 restore, do the restore, when the screen comes up with the cord and itunes icon, do I continue on with activation or unplug right there?

    If you have a ATT account, activate with iTunes, otherwise activate with ziphone.

    Once iTunes has restored your phone to 1.1.4 and rebooted, just quit iTunes and launch ZiPhone.

    Ummmmm, too easy? Just ran ZiPhone, jailbreak me option only(3rd one down) and it literally took 45 seconds at the most. I'm a Dual 2.7ghz G5 running 10.4.11, so happy.

    Now that installer is on springboard, ran it, it's asking to update installer(3.01), which I guess I will do and then install BSD.

    What should I do once the basic stuff is done? Anything I shouldn't do???

    ZiPhone 2.5c "Do it all"

    I've restored OTB IPhone to 1.14 and then ran Ziphone 2.5c with "Do it All"

    Everything works fine, phone is unlocked and any sim card works.

    However, when you do "Do it all" in Ziphone, how can you restore the Iphone to Factory Default?

    Can anyone tell me?

    Where can I get a list of good sources? I like what I see now, but I hear about all of these other cool apps and am kind of stumped...

    I am going to buy a 16GB iPhone tonight, but don't (right now) want to use the AT&T phone part of it. Just need it as more of a Touch... with the benefit of an external speaker and camera.

    So now can some tell me if the Ziphone 2.5c will work with this and what should I do? What do the 3 modes (Unlock, Jailbreak, Activate) do to the iPhone?

    I'm really confused because when I click on the download ziphone for mac button I get a screen with alot of code, no download, using safari. Using firefox, it only downloads a tiny .exe file that os x sees as a mpeg. What is going on?

    UPDATE: got it, had to change it to .zip

    4. Click Refurbish botton.

    Also have you done the above steps and was successful?
