ZiPhone: How to Download and Install ZiPhone for Windows 64 Bit
ZiPhone is a software tool that can unlock and jailbreak any iPhone, iPad or iPod device running on iOS firmware. ZiPhone can also restore bricked devices and enable them to work on any GSM network. In this article, we will show you how to download and install ZiPhone for Windows 64 bit computers.
Step 1: Download ZiPhone
You can download ZiPhone from the official GitHub repository of the developer, Zibri. The link is here.[^1^] You will find a file named install-windows.txt that contains the instructions and the download links for ZiPhone. You can also download ZiPhone from other sources, such as Software Informer[^2^] or UpdateStar[^3^], but make sure they are trustworthy and virus-free.
Step 2: Install libusb-win32
ZiPhone requires a driver called libusb-win32 to communicate with your iPhone device. Depending on your Windows version, you need to install a different version of libusb-win32. If you are using Windows 98 SE, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP 32 bit, you need to install libusb-win32 filter-bin version 0.1.2.2. If you are using Windows XP 64 bit, Windows Vista 32 bit/64 bit, Windows 7 32 bit/64 bit, Windows 8.x 32 bit/64 bit, or Windows 10 32 bit/64 bit, you need to install libusb-win32 devel-filter version 22.214.171.124. You can find the download links for both versions in the install-windows.txt file.
Step 3: Install Dev-Cpp
ZiPhone is written in C language and needs a compiler to build the executable file. The developer recommends using Dev-Cpp 126.96.36.199, which is an old version of a popular IDE for C/C++ programming. However, Dev-Cpp 188.8.131.52 only works on Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, and Windows XP 32 bit. If you are using a newer version of Windows, you can try using a newer version of Dev-Cpp or another IDE that supports C programming.
Step 4: Build ZiPhone
Once you have installed all the prerequisites, you can build ZiPhone by following these steps:
Extract the source code of ZiPhone from the zip file you downloaded.
Open a command prompt and navigate to the directory where you extracted the source code.
Type PATH=C:\\Dev-Cpp\\bin;C:\\Dev-Cpp\\lib and press Enter.
Type make -f Makefile.win and press Enter.
Wait for the compilation process to finish.
You should see a file named ZiPhone.exe in the same directory.
Step 5: Run ZiPhone
You are now ready to run ZiPhone and unlock your iPhone device. Before you do that, make sure you have backed up your data and charged your battery. Then follow these steps:
Connect your iPhone device to your computer via USB cable.
Put your iPhone device into DFU mode by holding down the Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds, then releasing the Power button while still holding the Home button until you see a black screen.
Open a command prompt and navigate to the directory where you have ZiPhone.exe.
Type ZiPhone -a -j and press Enter.
Wait for ZiPhone to unlock and jailbreak your iPhone device.
You should see a message saying "Done!" when the process is complete.
Disconnect your iPhone device from your computer and reboot it.
You should see a new app called Installer on your home screen.
You can use Installer to install various third-party apps and tweaks on your iPhone 061ffe29dd
