The latest news regarding regarding wireless access to the internet suggests that iPhone owners may use these features on their phones between 30 and 50 times more than typical owners of other models. The numbers have apparently come as such a shock to their originators - sources such as Apple, Google, and German iPhone service provider Deutsche Telekom AG - that some have gone back and double-checked their figures.
Earlier this week, ZiPhone was released and was the first tool available that provided not only a direct jailbreak for iPhones running 1.1.3, but did so in one step. Though pretty darn convenient, ZiPhone was still a command line application, which can scare off some of the less technically inclined iPhone owners out there.

It's true that this isn't an Apple blog, or a Macbook blog - but hey, we get excited about anything Apple. Throw on top of that the fact that we also tend to get excited about anything invisibleSHIELD (as seen in our in-depth review of the invisibleSHIELD for the iPhone), and here we are.
Earlier today, Zibri - a member of the iPhone Elite Team - released a new jailbreak utility for iPhone firmware 1.1.3. This latest jailbreak is rumored to be the same method that the iPhone Dev Team has been guarding in anticipation of the iPhone SDK release - the "true" jailbreak (as some have termed it).

ZiPhone will apparently take care of jailbreaking and unlocking your iPhone running firmware version 1.1.3 without requiring you to downgrade to an earlier version of firmware. What's more , Zibri claims that ZiPhone can actually 'revive' many phones with dead basebands.
Both Mac OSX and Windows versions of ZiPhone are available and can be downloaded
