Do not upgrade yet. It looks like zibri is confident that ziPhone will work... he just needs to iron out a few issues.

There are plenty of options now to upgrade to 1.1.4 (I have tried all of these successfully). Please be aware this firmware is simply a bug-fix release. There are no new features.

Once the unlock has been released, Kiwi-ise will see what's needed for CallerID, keyboard fixes etc. Although I would be very suprised if anything as needed as this release is supposed to just bring the SDK support.

I can confirm that ~ALL~ our kiwi-isations have been tested and work on 1.1.4:
Installation scripts have now been updated for the new firmware. NB: All our kiwi-isations have version dectection anyway so there is no risk of downloading a package that doesn't work with your particular iPhone firmware.

GeoHOT has some things to say about how to jailbreak/activate 1.1.4 :D

Just tried it out, works fine. I've got an IPSF-geohot style unlocked iPhone, just ran signal.app afterwards.

Yep - have already done this myself being IPSF unlocked but as most people are ziPhone or AnySIM unlocked I was waiting to avoid confusion.

And by the way... that's not GeoHOT's blog (read the message at the top of the page), it's George Zhu's. FYI: GeoHOT's blog is here: http://iphonejtag.blogspot.com/

I am now on 1.1.4 and running without issues!

iNdependance 1.4 b5 was released a few hours ago and it provides Activation/Jailbreak and Unlock of 1.1.4 for those of you on Mac OS X.

[Edit: There is also a Mac & Windows solution via iClarified using a modified version of ziPhone (NB: requires command-line) ]

All I had to do was restore and then run iNdependance (you can upgrade instead of restore but if you have 3rd-party apps I recommend you restore as it's always easier to start with a clean slate).

It is very easy to use, however, it does not automatically install Installer.app. But you can download Installer.app here and use iNdependence to install Installer yourself (you will need to install SSH via the SSH tab first).

For those who like things easy :) I would recommend holding off until ziPhone is released as this installs a more complete package (although we need to convince zibri to add AFC2 support! Which iNdependence ~does~ do.).

We will now begin testing to see what is needed to get all the kiwi-ise packages working on 1.1.4. I don't believe there will be many changes so hopefully they should all just work! :)


For those on IPSF unlocked phones:

After trying the George Zhu method in the wee hours this morning I had since reverted back. As I had predicted, the lack of unlock meant, even though I was IPSF unlocked which is still surviving upgrades, it meant I needed to use Signal.app again, each time a rebooted the phone... yuck!

This signal loss on reboot issue came about with the baseband upgrade that came with 1.1.3 and affects all IPSF unlocked phones. I used ziPhone on 1.1.3 and ran the unlock which meant I didn't need to run signal.app anymore.

This time I have used iNdependance to unlock as it was available before ziPhone :) Of couse, the downside to unlocking this way is that it downgrades your baseband to the one from 1.1.2 (4.02.13_G). So who knows, maybe I'll restore again and just use Signal.app?

I used iClarified's tutorial and it worked smoothly. It's just getting better and better!

Hey guys! This is good news! I am currently on 1.1.1 AnySim though, can I upgrade to 1.1.4 straight away or do I have to upgrade to 1.1.3 first??

No need to upgrade first, you can go straight to 1.1.4.

... and kiwi-ising my keyboard was a snap! Laughing

(NB: FOR IPSF UNLOCKS ONLY)

With the relase of ziPhone, I thought I would try a restore again to see what baseband version I was left after running it. I was unhappy with iNdependence which has a very generic approach and downgrades your BB to 4.02.13_G for unlocking, which is entirely unnecessary on my 3.9BL phone (I believe this BB downgrade is required for 4.6BL phones).

So I had initially run iNdependence again without the unlock option, so as to retain the latest BB, and was using Signal.app again to get signal back after each reboot. After restoring and running ziPhone with unlock option, I checked and my BB was still at version 04.04.05_G... YAY! So ziPhone does a MUCH BETTER job of unlocking 3.9BL phones than iNdependence.

Yes, if you have 4.6 bl and use ziphone 2.4 or 2.5 to unlock then it will downgrade the baseband to 3.9. According to people in the  know bl can't be upgraded with software yet. So to keep your bl on 4.6 use ziphone 2.5 to jailbreak and activate, then use ziphone 2.3 to unlock.

Sorry STI - I'm only taking about the basband here, not the bootloader. Also RE: "downgrade the baseband to 3.9", 3.9 is a bootloader version, not a baseband version. Maybe a typo on your part but we don't want to cause anymore confusion out there than there already is do we :)

Sorry I misread your post as "I believe this BL downgrade is required for 4.6BL phones". What I said above only applies to iPhones with 4.6 BL who don't want to downgrade the BL to 3.9.

Correct - my post was to inform people that may have used iNdependence that tehy should use ziPhone.

To clarify my point: iNdependence 1.4 b5 "generically" downgrades your BB (baseband), regardless of which BL (bootloader) you have, to the version which comes from 1.1.2 (04.02.13_G) in order to SIM unlock it. Here is a quote from the iNdependence website as to why the developer has chosen to do it this way:

Google maps current location feature will not work if you SIM unlock using iNdependence 1.4 beta. This is because when iNdependence SIM unlocks your phone, it installs baseband 04.02.13_G, and this (older) baseband doesn't support that feature. The reason I do things this way is because it works for all bootloader versions.
In an upcoming version of iNdependence I hope to have a version of gunlock which autodetects the bootloader version and chooses the best SIM unlock method possible.
