    you have a 1.1.1 iphone which has a 3.9 BL.
    ziphone 2.5 or iplus 1.2 will both work and will not touch your bootloader and both has Mac version.

    Iplus mac version works only on Intel processor based Mac. If you have a PPC processor, iPlus does not work with PPC yet
    I'm not sure about ziphone 2.5 Mac version.

    I personally think iPlus 1.2 is better because Avegias packaged it with fixes for various things and it installs additional application for you automatically.

    Please visit the iPlus 1.2 sticky thread. Read the first post. There are links to tutorial and videos. Tutorials for MAC are also there.

    Not required. Just keep ur current sim card inside. doesn't matter.
    First, restore (not upgrade) to 1.1.4 using good old iTunes, then use latest ziphone - from Ziphone GUI select "Do it all"

    Cheers,

    @saurabh,
    A friendly suggestion to change your signature.
    OTB 1.1.2 > StealthSIM > Gunlock > Restored to 1.1.4 > Ziphone Do it All

    In another post, I thought it's an instruction to a question.
    Secondly, OTB 1.1.2 means you have 4.6 BL and ziphone "do it all" will downgrade BL to 3.9 which prevent you from going back to 4.6 if you ever need to. I wouldn't advocate something like that.

    does not require at&T sim to be inside.
    just any SIM inside is ok such as Tmobile.
    just make sure SIM slot is not empty

    I used Ziphone also for a number of phones which has the 3.9 BL, so I just go and press do it all. But as other people suggested, if you are on the 4.6BL you should be careful in using Ziphone as the do it all button downgrades your bootloader. If you go to advanced method, you can define the options.

    As with iPlus, a lot of people are recommending. I haven't tried it but will do as soon as I received my new phones as I don't have a phone that has the newer BL.

    It's still up to you....

    Just used iplus on a PPC mac and it worked, only thing was that it didn't installed the installer app, and gave me a couple of erors but it worked.
