what is this?
iPhone do-all tool.
That's good news. It's for all Mac users now including Tiger etc.
Before it was just geared for Leopard.
Also, it looks like you can do the unlock for 3.9BL phones now as well. Before it was just for 4.6. So no need to run AnySim now!
2.30 seconds and you'll have a jailbroken, activated and Unlocked phone!!
Just to confirm, could I take a brand new 1.1.3 OOB, take it out of the box, plug it in, run activate, jailbreak and unlock and then put any SIM in it? Just my friend is talking about buying an iPhone but wants to use his Orange (UK) SIM.
Indeed you can, as long as you have Windows or a Mac, it is very easy to do. Just check the boxes and you are off.
Yep, really is that easy...
I was just laughing having a look at ebay UK. Sellers there still trying to flog off iPhones with Turbosim for 350 pounds and more!
Little do the buyers know all you have to do is buy an iPhone from Apple, or Carphone Warehouse etc for 269 pounds and in 2:30 secs you can have a competely unlocked phone!
Amazing how the situation changes, immediatley before Chritsmas and afterwards up to February it was a sellers market, unlocked phones with Turbosim were going for huge money because of the lack of software unlock for new phones.
Now it'll be a buyers market again for a few weeks and prices should come right down.
ALMOST buddy. Put your new sim in FIRST... then run ZiPhone. Did it last night on an OOTB 1.1.3 16 Gigger.
With the OS X version of 2.3? No problems, youTube working, etc.?
Just to clear this up, you HAVE to insert your "non AT&T" SIM card in the iPhone before you use ZiPhone? And can I just check the Unlock and Activate checkboxes without checking the Jailbreak checkbox? Will that be okay? I don't want to jailbreak it. Just want an activated and unlocked iPhone.
You can't activate the phone or unlock it WITHOUT jailbreaking!
Jailbreaking is the process by which the phones file system is hacked so you can access it - in order to access anything in the phone it has to be jailbreaked!
You cannot unlock or activate WITHOUT jailbreaking!
Ok fair enough, but can you unlock jailbreak it without installing Installer.app?
ZiPhone 2.4 is out so 2.3 is useless now
Good god, is this guy on amphetamines??!!!!
I'm just about to do the same thing (got a new iPhone from O2 as a present today and looking to use it with my Orange sim).
The O2 shop said i can return it within 14 days if not happy for a refund ... if I jailbreak/activate/unlock ... and then decide i don't want to keep phone, can i restore it to a state where they'll never know i was fiddling? Or once i go down this route, i'm committed?
Avoid downgrading the bootloader. (ZiPhone 2.4 may do this automatically, but v2.3 and earlier do not - see the threads on this topic.) Otherwise, you should be able to restore to 1.1.3 firmware and 4.3.13_G baseband with a regular restore with iTunes and nobody will be the wiser.
thanks for the quick response, munroe, i'll give 2.3 a go then.
struggling to find v2.3 anywhere ... will v2.4 definitely downgrade the bootloader?
