    Default [Ziphone] 3.9, 4.6 FakeBlank Oh my god...

    Hello there,

    I bought an iphone exactly 2 weeks ago 16Gb, I do not know the OTB version can anyone advise? I am guessing that pretty new so 4.6BL

    I used Ziphone 3.0 and the phone unlocked, activated and jailbroken everything is running fine, Calls, SMS, Edge, Wifi the works and I love it.

    Then I read tons of stuff about not using Ziphone and the downgrade of BL.

    My question is this, everthing works so I am happy right now, when next upgrade comes along, will I have to do anything special once the tools are available to activate, unlock, jailbreak? Especially the BL par concerns me, although I do not know wha I had in the first place. Also curious to know in the phones current state would I be able to do a DFU restore to say 1.1.4?

    I know there are tons of thread, but that kinda confusing me even more, hope someone can shed some light on this for me.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can use the pwnage tool to change your bootloader now, so i dont think you will have any problems. I am not sure about a restore to 1.1.4. I will let someone else answer that for you.

    You should be able to restore , but Itunes won't switch your bootloader back , you need bootnutuer for that also why would you use ziphone after reading about it, don't you know whyit could do to your wifi and mac adress

    you should not use ziphone is giving a lot of people a lot of trouble.

    but you are running fine right now.

    my advice is leave it like that, why fixing something that is not broken. Wait until the next FW comes aote and then upgrade back your BL to 4.6 and unlock using the safest tool at that moment.

    When i got the iphone, I was not aware of the issues and friends i spoke to all mentioned ziphone, so i figured if they used it and was fine, then it was good for me. Only after a week or so, so using iphone and reading around did I see the posts and warning etc. I must say though my Mac address in Generall-->About is not what the post that warns you not to do it. Unless of course it hardcoded and the phone shown to be in General->About is wrong.

    I got a few questions if ou guys can help:

    1 - How can I confirm that my phone came with 4.6?

    2 - If a phone came OTB with 3.9 can it be upgraded o 4.6 via bootnutuer, would there be any problem with the phone or its fine to do that?

    3 - What setting should I use when upgrading to 4.6 in bootnutuer? Are the settings suppose to be different when you do a restore or can I keep those settings?

    4 - Do I get any benefit from upgrading to 4.6 now instead of waiting till I need too? Is it total safe to do or chances of bricking?

    Your phone came with BL 4.6 and unlocking with ziphone means your bootloader got downgraded in the process. Read the Pwnage FAQ.

    For bootneuter use
    Neuter - on
    BL - 4.6
    FB - Off
    Unlock - On

    Set up as a *new* phone in iTunes

    How do you know it was 4.6, is it because it was recently purchased?

    The update below is safe? or should I wait till I have to do it? The settings you gave can I keep those for future restore or future unlock or will they have to be changed? Do I lose or gain any functionaility?

    Don't understand about setting up *new* phone in itunes? When I connect it, it will come up in itunes as normal, so how would i setup new and why do I need to do that?

    Sorry to ask so many questions, just what to know the facts this time before I do anything. Probably what I should have done the first time round, then I would not be here

    Hey,


    1. Your iPhone was defenitely was originally with 4.6 since all the iPhone from the week i think 47 or 49 are with BL 4.8 since ZiPhone is not able to unclock 3.9 what is does before unlock is downgrade your BL to 3.89 and then unlocks it.
    2. There would be no problem to upgrade you BL with bootnutuer - it's safe, however since you have all running in your ZiPhoned iPhone why not to wait till official 2.0 released an the just pwange your iPhone
    3. For bootnutuer setting please see iClarified Tutorial (from Step Twenty Seven) http://iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=957
    4. Currenlty there is no benefit from upgrading BL to 4.6, that is why i would wait in you case till next firware released and then do it all at once with Pwange tool, unless you want to try new 2.0 beta 3 firmware

    Best of luck

    *new* phone in itunes - is when you restored your iphone or you do any upgrades of firrware, then once you insert it in dock iTune would see the iPhone and will ask you weather you want to restore you iPhone setting as per previously synced / backed up Iphone settinge which you would say no and set up as new one, in which case you will loose all your setting sucj as wlan passwords / sms / emails , which is not a problem since you can sync it back again and enter wlan passwords again, however no sms to be restored...

    Thanks this is exactly the info I was looking for. I think I will wait till I have too, as mentioned everything is working great. As per some mentions about battery drain, I found that installing BossPrefs and turning off SSH till I need it, done the trick I get a full 2 days with my usage, well hapy with that.

    Now this is ahead of myself, but lets say offcial 2.0 is released, what would I have to do at this point to upgrade to 2.0? (remembering my BL is 3.9 currently)

    Whats the difference between Pwange and iLiberty+ the later seems easier to use and seems like a 1 click solution, which I have to say I do like.

    My fear is that before I do a restore, I need to upgrade my BL back to 4.6 I just want to figure out the steps from me getting from 3.9 A/U/J to firmware 2.0 without destroying the phone. As I said this is kinda of early days, but always nice to figure out the route :-)

    And I definetly will not be going 2.0 in beta, happy to wait for offcial.
