    Hi,

    Does ZiPhone Unlock UK 1.1.4 iPhones, or is there an other unlock that needs to be used?

    Thanks.

    777th post, wonder if I get good luck or anything? :D

    It worked a treat on my UK iPhone 1.1.2 out of the box but on 1.1.4.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Will it unlock or just Jailbreak the iPhone?

    It gives you the option of what you want to do. I just jailbroke it first and that was all well and good but figured it would be handy to have it unlocked so I went the full hog and unlocked it.

    I've heard reports that it will only unlock it to other O2 sims, can you confirm this?

    I have only tested my 02 sim with the phone so can't confirm but I believe it goes a little something like this, jailbreak = 02 sims, unlock = any sim (not 3)

    the 1.1.4 firmware locks the iPhone to all SIMs including O2 unless it is an iPhone contract SIM.

    What that means is that your normal contract O2 and PAYG O2 SIMs will NOT work unless the phone is unlocked!

    This was not the case until 1.1.3 it seems.

    There are two choices for unlocking your 1.1.4 iPhone.

    ZiPhone and iPlus.

    iPlus installs several important packages with installer that you will need.

    ZiPhone ONLY installs Installer.

    But the main difference is one of what happens if your iPhone breaks.

    iPlus lets you reverse everything you did to your iPhone and ZiPhone does not.

    So if you were to drop your iPhone then Apple would not repair it as ZiPhone makes permanent changes that are not reversible!

    Having said that if you are not signing up for an official iPhone contract then Apple won't touch your iPhone either way - they only fix/swap iPhones signed up officially on O2.

    ZiPhone has also been know to break wi-fi on phones from time to time.

    The safest and more efficient software to use is iPlus.

    You can download it here:

    There is a tutorial here with photos and a video of the process: http://www.hackthatphone.com/114/iphone_114_true_unlock_windows.html

    I used iPlus on my UK 16GB iPhone and it worked perfectly.

    Just download the standard version - you do not need the international payload!

    Have fun!

    All iphones are the same pretty much...differing only in flash capacity. 8GB 4GB 16GB will work

    I got my UK iPhone 1.1.3 OTB last Tuesday, restored to 1.1.4 on iTunes (by going into restore mode) and ran iPlus to jailbreak and unlock.

    It worked like a charm and am now up and running on my Tesco Mobile payg simcard :)

    Hi,
    I am new to this forum, I see it's an excellent place !.
    I have a question I hope someone can help with.

    I have an iPhone (unlocked) running version 1. Not 1.1 or greater but 1.
    It has anysim on it and installer.app.

    How would I go about updating the firmware whilst keeping it fully unlocked, its on Orange network UK.

    Thanks in advance.
