Few points dear:

1.) your ringtone idea does not work. at least for me.
2.) Yes 2.0 is unlockable in its current state. but not will be the same in final release. there will be a an enhanced lock provided and if we see what zibri says then the file format has some changes and will require him a few more days to work it out.
3.) Iphone will come in Sep-oct from vodafone as well as airtel at 28K

convert it into aiff file using switch then change the extension file to m4a and then open itunes and add the tone in ring tone library of itunes and sync the iphone with it!!

N you will get the tones in your iphone under sounds>ring tones>custom

But this way you can get just 5 tones at a time !

But i must say it's safe to get the things worked by company style

If u saty in news then you must know that 2.0 is unlock able you can use 2.0 now but no installer is there !!!

search for winpwn on google if you are at windows or PWNED on MAC!!!

yupp the phone is launching on 9th june but not here !!!

It will be launched in September both by airtel and vodafone under their contract !!

and i assume the price will be around 25k !!
indians still have to wait for another 4-5 months !!

or get a iphone and unlock it and use it with any service provider like i am doing!!!!

Firmware 2.0 can even be carrier neutral. Many countries are having more than one carrier carrying the iPhone. So it neednt be locked to a carrier. Of course it can be locked to run only Apple approved apps

As I read my post i have written the same thing!!!

And you are talking about the zibri i would love to tell you one thing zibri just makes the GUI known as Ziphone that's it rest the mainly unlockable and jailbreaking things he uses the old softwares provided by different Crackers mainly by iphone dev team from russia !!!

Are you sure it will be exact 28k not less than that or more than that????
me too written that airtel and vodafone will come up with iphones !!

Am i writing some different language?


And for the issue of the 2.0 unlock i don't think so it will be issue reason that if you remember that there was an upgrade of bootloader when 1.1.2 launched so it had to be downgrade first to unlock it !!

Now once it has been done , i would say it will be done now with ease!!!

Yupp you are right that in some countries that iphone is being working with more than one carrier ,but it needs a small software which can be put it in easily (But i hope the lot for at&t doesn't come to india )


apple approved applications will only be available through i tunes app store which is in 2.0 firmware !!

n believe me those applications and games will be comparing to PSP n just now there's a new thing invented to play iphone games like PSP

Are you talking about Installer.app? Or some official piece of software?

I think there are more than 10 countries that have got dual carriers. It would be easier for Apple to release a carrier neutral version than to stick with the so far ineffective carrier locking

For mac users, any MP3 imported into garage bands can be sent to iTunes as a ringer. Works like a charm. No hack, no crack.

On PC you can use iPhoneRingToneMaker. It makes a 30 sec ringtone form your mp3 and then uploads via itunes to the phone.

Hey Smoki Dear,

u seem to be taking it too personal. So lets see what we have here.

1.) Apple is going to release a new itunes for 2.0 and will require to rewrite ZiPhone to support the new mobiledevice framework. So don't expect a new ZiPhone version shortly after the official 2.0 release. The 'hacking' of 2.0 however has been done already.

2.) On your point that Zibri makes the GUI and Dev Team does the unlocking. See this: No 'dev-team' was directly involved with Ziphone. Both methods as well as commands are different. Please use both of them on your phone if u have one and compare (Ziphone gives you the code as well)

3.) On the GUI: The Z guy did not do GUI. "pendor" did GUI for iPhone.

I dont think we have a reason to get personal and do appreciate that you know so much about the iphone, probably even more.

idea is to appreciate a person's efforts (Zibri) who has done so much for the iPhone owners as well as sellers for free. I am sure you would also appreciate this, as Dev team also mentioned that the did not do anything in Ziphone..

As far as I understand ver 2.0 is not yet released, so it hasnt been hacked as yet. What has been hacked using Pwnage tools is a developer version of firmware 2.0.
There is no guarantee that the final version can be hacked or unlocked using Pwnage tools. All we can do is hope for the best Looking forward to June 9th

arry naa i am not taking it personally !!

You are not getting my point on ziphone /dev-team i assume!!

1. I agree that new itunes will be launched ,so what's new apple launches new itunes whenever it launches new firmware ,you can check the history!!

2. For ziphone i was saying that he didn't work from scratch , what he do in initial stages he took jailbreak from dev-team,unlocking from iunlock software (if u have remember there was issue unlocking 1.1.2 from ziphone because in iunlock you have to put phone onto airplane mode )

I was just saying that he uses the procedure taken from the vaious softwares which were in the market !!




3. I think Ziphone is too a GUI (Graphical User Interface), I think the ziphone is the best and easiest way to get an unlock iphone!!


I too really appreciate zibri for doing that kind of work!!


If you think that i was taking personally, so i apologize it !


I was just sharing my knowledge and getting knowledge from all you guys!!

SO i think we should leave this issue aside and joined others for helping out!!

yeah sure man. I appreciate this. Lets hope for a new iphone on 9th june. I am not too sure if I would buy it this time as i am not too impressed with it. I just wonder what if there is a marriage (merger) of apple's interface and Windows mobile 6.1 practicality.

Hi rchimni first update your firmware to ver 1.1.4 using Itunes your phone will get locked again and then unlock it using Ziphone 3.0.
P.S Better to restore than update in Itunes but you will lose all your contacts,notes etc so better have a backup
