What is Zip0n?
We all manage to mess up our jailbreak every once in a while. Once you lose your jailbreak, the only option left is to upgrade to the latest version.
This is something that can end up being quite difficult for the average user if the device is bricked. This is where this new tool comes in.
Zip0n is a firmware restore utility that allows you to upgrade your device to the latest iOS version. It is developed by Hacks4Live and iPhoneguy1101.
It’s a very simple tool that can be a lifesaver if you brick your device or mess up your jailbreak, here’s why –
- One-click restore – A keystroke is all it takes to activate this tool.
- User-friendly – Since it’s a command line utility, there’s absolutely nothing complicated about it all.
- Bypass restore checks – It bypasses all checks present in the firmware to block restores such as Find My iPhone. If you use this tool, you don’t need to disable Find My iPhone beforehand.
Zip0n is fully compatible with all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models (64-bit and 32-bit).
