    Default [iPlus] V2.0b > Using it over ziphone ?

    Hello. I have a new 16gb. I jailbroke it last week using ziphone and after reading that iPlus is really the way to go I decided to restore and try jailbreaking it that way. I am on AT&T and have no desire to unlock. So I downloaded iPlus2.0b_JB.zip, extracted, closed iTunes and Itunes helper, and in the terminal got to the desktop directory and typed Iplus -j.

    I thought this command was only suppose to jailbreak the phone. By the screen said something like doing optional unlock on the second pass? After that it booted up for the second time to a screen with red bars and just seem to hang there?

    So I unplugged the iphone and restored in iTunes doing the DFU method. I am worried I unlocked my phone and those messed up the boot loader? Could i have done this? I have restored in iTunes twice and can seem to use edge and wifi on the phone. Also youtube works. Am I over worrying? Really didnt want to unlock?

    Sorry guys for the post but thanks for any help thrown my way. I guess I should have stuck to ziphone.

    You only choose jailbreak no? Jailbreak does not touch the bootloader however if you choose jailbreak and unlock then you have fakeblank but not to worry because if you did it with iplus you can easily upgrade via software. Now I have a question for you, did you hit do it all or unlock while using ziphone?

    When I used ziphone last week I chose only Jailbreak. iPlus I typed iPlus -j, but I saw something that said optional unlock? Then it froze on the second boot. I thought using the -J would just jailbreak the phone or does iPlus always unlock?

    Even if I did mess up. I did a DFU restore, will that not get it back to originally state? Seems to be working fine?

    it just that chooseing more options than jailbreak downgrades the bootloader on newer phones unlike how iplus does it ziphone does it so that you are unable to upgrade via software, if downgrade with iplus you are able to go back to your orginal bootloader if you want via software.

    I am not worried about jailbreaking. Per my description in my first post. The iPlus jailbreak froze after saying optional pass 2 unlock. I never told it to unlock I only typed iPlus -J. After unplugging and then restoring in DFU mode, is my phone now back to normal?


    Why does the software say pass 2 optional unlock if I never told it to unlock?

    If you only typed j then your ok. Sometimes iplus gives a wierd readout but it won't do what you dont want it to do. In other words your ok, if you want to test and see if your still locked then get a sim card of a diffrent carrier and put it in your phone, your phone will then say invalid sim blah blah blah till you put orginal sim in. Another test you can do is install a app called hardware info and check your bootloader if it says 4.6.bl then your still locked. But I highly doubt your unlocked and if you were itunes is not going to help you if you did it with iplus then you can easily upgrade via software just like how you downgraded. If you did it with ziphone then that's a diffrent story. In other words your over reacting a bit
