ZiPhone and Zibri Vs. iPhone Dev-Elite Vs iJailbreak 0.5.1 blah blah blah "Teams"

The guys at iJailBreak released iJailBreak 0.5.1, an open source jailbreaking solution that allows users to allow third party applications to be run on iPhones. The new version, a 17.9 megabyte download, adds compatibility with version 1.1.4 of the iPhone/iPod touch firmware as well as eight gigabyte iPod touches.

I don't recommend this method. For instance: " iPod Touches jailbroken appear to be having issues syncing with iTunes, therefore we don't recommend jailbreaking them. A version for all iPod Touches should be out soon. ".

It also downgrades your boot loader from 4.6 to 3.9 JUST like ZiPhone, which i do not recommend either. I only write the guides upon request. My 10 cents on ZiPhone:

Yes, it is very easy. It is easier for an average person to now become a " hacker" but do you know that the software's creators write this on their troubleshoot page:

OMG!!! My phone broke! what do i do??????
Expect to be ignored. No offense, but the IRC channels get a lot of traffic.

I have fixed 16 devices now. Yes, that were completely perfect before it's owners experimented with ziphone.

Most importantly ZiPhone software have IMEI changers built into them and this BREAKS FEDERAL LAW!

Zibri, the mastermind behind this software says that it's only illegal in some countries and that the user should be aware of the risk.

On the other hand, he is the man. All the money hungry iPhone dev team-elite team members are such MONEY HUNGRY _________ (fill in the blank yourself). He released this software, GUI free of charge for everyone. Which is noble and not many members mentioned above would do the same. Hats off to you Zibri and Geo! I'm sorry if I'm forgetting any noble contributors to the iPhone Hacking Community....but if you're noble you know who you are!
