    Default 1.1.1 OTB -> 1.1.3 soft upgrade. Restore to 1.1.4 then use ZiPhone (Mac)? Quickie

    Hi,

    I have a 1.1.1 US phone, Anysim to 1.1.2 and then the 'soft upgrade' (where it copied the ipsw to the phone etc) to get to 1.1.3.
    I want to install 1.1.4 and use an easy method to activate/jailbreak (I use O2 UK anyway, though not the iPhone tarrif).

    Could someone please clarify that I need to do a full restore to 1.1.4 (I want to anyway as I have installed/uninstalled so much junk and I think the battery life is worse than it should be). If I need to resotre... how? Do I just go into iTunes, tell it to check for updates then click 'restore'?

    Is this enough or will is still keep the hacks that AnySim etc put there?

    Please just a few pointers and I will be so happy!

    There are multiple choices now to go to FW 1.1.4: iLiberty, iPlus, and Ziphone. You need to read and decide. If you're at BL 4.6 you may not want to use Ziphone because it will downgrade it to 3.9.

    Your iPhone will become relocked with the new FW.

    -Do a DFU restrore to 1.1.4 (search the forum on how to do this)
    - use iPlus 2.0 and you are done.

    (don't use ziphone 2.5c. iLiberty does not unlock at the moment)

    Right now im on the 3.9BL 1.1.3 fw and would like a 'virgin/ootb' 1.1.4 phone. I dont need to unlock I dont think as I am on O2 Uk anyway.
    After that, Ziphone seems like a good option.

    So can I just restore in iTunes? Is that going to work OK?

    download the 1.1.4 fw
    put phone in recovery mode
    itunes dectect phone in recovery
    shift-click to select fw you downloaded
    it will restore to 1.1.4 and wipe your phone clean.
    Since you have legit O2, you can activate again right?
    you don't care about unlock so I guess you only want to jailbreak right?.

    Yeah im on O2 UK, but not the official tarrif so I think I just need to jailbreak/activate.

    The DFU restore is different to just a 'shift/option restore'?

    And you think iPlus 2.0 is better than ziphone 2.5c?

    Thanks so much

    Ah ... I'm not familiar with O2 stuff.
    Is that the official carrier for iphone that apple contracts with?

    Well, the DFU restore is different than a regular restore. It looks very much the same (shift-click). to put phone in restore mode and DFU restore mode is tricky but easy. Just search the forum. If I find the link, I'll put in for ya.

    iPlus is better than ziphone 2.5c when you use it on phone with Bootloader 4.6 (e.g: OTB 1.1.2, OTB 1.1.3 and OTB 1.1.4)

    for older phone with bootloader 3.9 (e.g: OTB 1.0.x and OTB 1.1.1) - iPlus and ziphone work equally well. iPlus puts in nice patches and etc ... So in this case, iPlus is better as well.

    Yeah Apple use O2 in the UK but the contracts are all 18 months and a little expensive. I had an existing O2 contract so I just use that. The nice thing is that the iPhone has all the settings etc built in for me as its set up to work with O2 in the UK anyway.

    Thanks for all your help - I will use iPlus. Is this tutorial OK to use? http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=765 Its just that the thread you kindly pointed to me has 39 pages and im always worried that the page 1 tutorial might not be as up to date as possible!

    Thanks so much for your help - its really appreciated.
