@nzbullet - I think your suggestion of adding this to the readme might have been a good idea after all Tongue out I will add to original post and to readme.


Hmmm, I suppose the thing is people generally don't trawl through every page of a post when it gets long. But on the other hand, as you said, it is not a NZ specific fix and we don't want to fill up the thread with general fixes. However for to make it easy for everyone to be able to enjoy those fixes they realy do need to install the 'ZiPhone iBrikr Fix'. Catch 22 I suppose.

piksel:
Daneger: So its fine with ziphone 2.3?


Hey Daneger - 2.3 is all good for deleting the Zibri webclip. Zibri fixed the ownership issue on the WebClips folder in 2.2.

Great to hear you're sorted - I said it was the adhoc network didn't I :P


You did indeed - thanks for your help piksel!

Pleased to be up and running now, hopefully should I need to restore again to 1.1.3 with ziphone it is working so I do not need to locate a bloody wifi everytime I want my adhoc to work...

But time will tell.

Thanks

Hi Guys..

I've just unlocked my bosses iphone (and wiped all of his contacts oops! :P) but am now trying to fix the number formatting.. trying to install the ziphone ibricker fix comes back with an error saying that firmware 1.1.1 is required and stops there.. anyone else had this issue?

you also mention on the first page that you can upload these settings using sftp? is ssh enabled on the device by default or is there something that i need to do to enable ssh?

sorry if this is a bit noob.. its my first unlock :)

Cheers

Josh

Not sure about the "requires firmware 1.1.1" error - maybe you need to update Community Resources??

For SSH you can install OpenSSH from Installer Smile

[EDIT]I should also mention that you need to install the BSD Sub-system... but that's a typical requirement for 3rd party apps[/EDIT]

Can I change the default vodafone carrier logo without adding the NZ carrier bundle?

I used t-pot to navigate to following directory /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/ but couldn't find FSO_CARRIER_ATT.png or Default_CARRIER_ATT.png image. So I added the two corresponding images from Vodafone_NZ.bundle folder and restarted the phone. However I still see the same default vodafone logo.

What am I doing wrong?

In 1.1.3 the logos have moved. The phone now uses carrier bundles. You would need to place your custom files in this directory:

/System/Library/Carrier Bundles/Vodafone_NZ.bundle/

This bundle is added by kiwi-ise.

And to install this carrier bundle do I have to use SSH? Can I just copy the Vodafone_NZ.bundle folder to the iPhone?
 
I guess the default carrier bundle used by unlocked iphones is the Unknown.bundle, so can I just replace Default_CARRIER_VODAFONE and FSO_CARRIER_VODAFONE in this folder?

Thanks.

Sorry - I thought you had installed Kiwi-ise :)

Ok - if you want to do this yourself then it's easier to just modify the Unknown.bundle as there are other steps involved like creating symlinks based on MCC/MNC values and also deleting other symlinks that the iPhone recreates after a reboot.

The simplest option for you would be to edit the carrier.plist file inside the Unknown.bundle. Find this:

        <dict>
            <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
            <false/>
            <key>CarrierName</key>
            <string>vodafone</string>
            <key>DefaultImage</key>
            <string>Default_CARRIER_VODAFONE.png</string>
            <key>FullScreenOpaqueImage</key>
            <string>FSO_CARRIER_VODAFONE.png</string>
        </dict>


... and change the AllowPrefixMatching value to true. So change this:

            <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
            <false/>


...to this:
            <key>AllowPrefixMatching</key>
            <true/>


[EDIT]Sorry - lost tags after updating my post[/edit]


You'll also see the file names are specified there but I belive from what you've said, you have already named yours correctly, but just in case, they should mtch the values specified. Any changes will requitre a reboot for changes to take effect. Also - your logos should be 20px high.

Good luck! Smile

Also, whilst you're editing that carrier.plist file, I would recommend changing these values too:


    <key>ShowCallForwarded</key>
    <true/>
    <key>ShowCallForwarding</key>
    <true/>

Setting them both to false will remove the annoying "Call Forwarding Active" message you get when making or receiving calls Wink

Thanks, after changing AllowPrefixMatching to true the new logo is showing up. I thought prefix matching got something to do with phone number formating.

It's good to see that Apple have made it quite easy to customerize the iphone.

Btw I already disabled the showcallforwarding message.

STI: ... I thought prefix matching got something to do with phone number formating.

Nope, that's handled by this file (which is also included in Kiwi-ise CallerID):
/System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework/PhoneFormats/UIPhoneFormats.plist


STI: .. It's good to see that Apple have made it quite easy to customerize the iphone.

Hmm - don't know that I would agree with you about calling it "quite easy"... Tongue out  Maybe for some, but there are plenty of iPhone users out there that wouldn't know where to start... Smile I help 3 friends of mine to keep their iPhones updated and running correctly on the NZ network... not everyone with an iPhone is computer literate.

I know what you are saying, but if you look at other mobile operating systems such as Windows Mobile you need to install third party apps or to edit the registry to make this level of customization.
