    ziphone changes the bootloader permanently. Not reversible, which means if you need to ship your iphone back to Apple for any reason, they'll void the warranty because they can see the hacked bootloader changes. Iliberty is reversible so you can restore back to it's original state.

    I believe this is now fixable with BootNeuter. I may be wrong though.

    I have now successfully unlocked and jailbroke several phones, both 8 GB and 16 GB with ILiberty. It has by far been the best method for me!

    Seriously now. The bootloader change during unlock isn't what makes it ziphone very dangerous, it's the massive interference with the ramdisk during jailbreaking that carries the risk.
    In my experience:
    People often assume that ZiPhone is safe because they can't see anything wrong with it, and it can seem "fine" for long periods of time. Also it's the common mindset that people have (the quicker it is, the safer), but they are wrong no two ways about it. The more seasoned modders here should remember the first sim unlocks (iUnlock and AnySim). They worked fine, looked all nice and good, but they damaged your phone! Just because you can't see the danger, it doesn't mean it's not there! (you can try to see this for yourself by sitting in a room with Carbon Monoxide for a few hours). But, I say again: It's a matter of fact not opinion that ZiPhone is not the safest.

    My vote goes to PwnageTools.Basicly it is safer unlock at the moment.
    But more safer unlock is Unlock (1.1.4) from only with iPhone bootloader 3.9Orig.If we talking about Firmware 1.1.4.

    My vote goes to the PwnageTools also. I've seen many iPhone get screw up with ziphone unlock include my own iPhone. I fixed with PwnageTool and had fixed many iPhone locally using Pwnage Tools, hasn't failed me yet.

    As for the warranty, if the phone is really screw up to the point of no return, just drain the battery, put in a vaild ATT sim, take it back to the Apple store and play dumb, as long as the iphone still have warranty, you'll get a replacement. Just make sure you don't tell the Mac Genie the iphone is on T-mobile or unlocked and make sure the phone can only boot to recovery mode (showing the cable with iTune logo), or better yet not booting at all, this works every time.

    My favorite is the pwnage tool. Never any problems after the install.

    Follow up the installation with Cydia
