[HOWTO] iPhone Hacking – T-Zone on iPhone

There are two ways to do this, by using the Installer or by modifying 2 text files manually. I have not tried the Installer apps, but a lot of people are saying that it works.

[HOWTO] iPhone Hacking – Activation, Jailbreak, Unlock, Bootloader Downgrade, SummerBoard and Customize on 1.1.3

I finally take the plunge and bought an iPhone. For starters, I do not like AT&T and decided to jailbreak, unlock and customize it. First of all, jailbreak and unlock. After GeoHot released the unlocking tools on Feb 8, 2008, there’s a sudden influx in iPhone unlocking tool. The one I recommend and has used before is ZiPhone (download link). ZiPhone is released by Zibri and is also available with the OSX GUI version (download link). This tool will activate, jailbreak, unlock, downgrade bootloader, change imei, recover bricked iphone, and etc, any version of iPhone currently available (up to 1.1.3).

Here’s what I do in the beginning:

  1. Upgrade Iphone to firmware 1.1.3
  2. Run the ZiPhone software with -j -u -a -b flags enabled to activate, jailbreak, unloack and downgrade bootloader

That’s all that’s needed to activate, unlock, jailbreak, and downgrade the bootloader of my brand new iPhone (1.1.2 OOTB). This will also install the Installer application. The Installer applications allows the ease of downloading/installing of software from the software repositories.

First order of business there are a couple of software that needs to be installed to lay the groundwork for other hacks. To install these software, tap on Installer -> Install -> All Packages and tap on the following packages:

  1. BSD Subsystem
  2. openSSH
  3. Communicty Sources

After installing these software, I proceed to install SummerBoard and Customize for audio/visual customization. There are, however, some snags/problems with the 1.1.3 firmware. Some SummerBoard themes installs in the old folder and I need to use a patched version of Customize specifically for 1.1.3 firmware. I started by adding a new repository for the patched Customize.

  1. Tap on Installer -> Sources
  2. Tap on Edit -> Add
  3. Type “http://www.touchrepo.com/repo.xml” (without quotes) then click OK
