is For Sale. Goodbye ZiPhone, I Will Miss You

Zibri, creator of ZiPhone just announced on his blog that is for sale. Since the birth of his child last month, Zibri is obviously busy with his family, which I totally understand.

For those of you who are not familiar with the ZiPhone, it was the first jailbreaking software developed to make the jailbreaking process a child play. I mean, ZiPhone was and still remains my favorite jailbreaking tool. Hands down! ZiPhone worked under firmware 1.x but wasn’t updated for firmware 2.x earlier this year.

So why was ZiPhone my favorite jailbreaking tool? For one, it was the only software that never crashed on me. But most importantly, it was so easy to use that a caveman could have done it… You simply had to download Ziphone, install, plug your iPhone, click jailbreak and wait a few seconds. *Sigh*, I miss those days…

So now the domain name is for sale. If you’re a little bit into Internet Marketing, that might be interesting for you. The website has a PR6 and countless backlinks. I would love to buy this domain name but I don’t think I have enough in the bank right now to afford it. If you’re interested, you’ll have to spend $50 on the front end, just to be able to bid on the domain name. The highest bidder will then get it.

Below is a copy of what Zibri wrote on his blog:

It was an incredible ride, guys, and I’m sincerely grateful
to everybody who made this happen.
As some of you may know, from the 7th of November 2008 I’m a father.
All my efforts are now focused on my family then, later, I’ll start some other project
maybe related with the iPhone, maybe not.
So, from now the domain (Pagerank 6 on Google) is FOR SALE.
Here’s how the sale works:
Go to the donation page, donate $50 and write your buy offer in the
donation description free text field.
At the end of the sale the highest bid will get the domain.
Direct emails will not count as bids.
If by the end of the sale the maximum bid will not meet my minumum requirement,
all $50 donations will be refunded and the sale won’t happen.
Sale result and winning bidder will appear on this site.
The sale will end on 20st January 2009.
If the winner won’t pay the bid by the 10th of February 2009,
the 2nd higher bidder will be the winner.
There is a banner on the right side of this site.
That banner links to a site which evaluate other sites.
Bids lower than 1/3 of the “Net Worth” will be rejected.
The daily ads revenue on that site is pretty accurate.
And so is the daily pageview (average in the last months).
Happy bidding.

If you guys are interested, hop over to and make your bid.

As for me, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Zibri for his involvement in the iPhone community. You did an amazing job and always stood for yourself, even under criticism from the other guys (psst, that’s the Dev Team). Good luck to you and your family!
