[Advice] Why ZiPhone Should Only Be Used As A Last Resort
ZiPhone, an unlocking tool created by Zibri, has been known to cause many problems and grief for users, but in other cases, it has been known to work perfectly.
Known Problems Are:
Software Bootloader Downgrading
> OOTB Phones now come with bootloader 4.6. It is not known of the affect of using bootloader 3.9 on upcoming firmware versions.
> The method in which ZiPhone unlocks the baseband and bootloaders is known to cause problems, Such as the "Endless Reboot" and constant crashes.
> The "Fix WiFi" tool in ZiPhone sets a fixed mac address, instead of an identical one, which could cause serious problems if two iPhones or iPod Touches which had used this fix, were connected to the same Wireless Network
DFU Mode Option
> ZiPhone will only put an iPhone/iPod TOuch into a low level software DFU. Proper DFU is where nothing is displayed on the screen, but the iPhone/iPod Touch is detected by iTunes.
