I've reasearched alot on these Cryptos and I'm pretty sure the Zodiac is using mostly Phonetic symbols in them,yet He mixes them in a way that is by far to off for Me.The "F' symbol with the line and tail on it He uses in some of His letters is the Phonecian symbol for the letter "Y'.This is one case that really gets Me.

Hey, all. 
I wrote a piece for Ratter's continuing investigation into all things Zodiac, about the time that I thought I solved the 340 cipher. (Spoiler: I didn't.) Check it out, if you're interested.

There appears to be something handwritten directly above the first line of code in the 340-cipher. It is very subtle and hard to pick out what it says. If you have Photoshop open the hi-res 340 and adjust the levels or curves and the lettering will be a little more pronounced.
Hopefully someone else will see this. I don’t think its show through from the other side of the page because the letters don’t seem to be reversed.

It looks like a collection of letters. Don't seem to be words.

I'm sure it was mentioned in this thread but who misspells the word ZODIAC as

as in GAIK??

I would just substitute the letter G for every Triangle symbol in the cipher.

Remember, Gaik would have written the code without thinking that anyone knew it was coming from Gaik because in his mind he was not on anyone's radar as the killer and people subconsciously insert things into their writings (ciphers in this case) when they don't think anyone is on to them.

What I'm saying is, a person like Gaik would have no problem inserting a misspell (a Freudian slip) as Gaik because he knew that no one really knew who he was.

It's not like he was writing the code today when everyone is aware of him, back then he thought in his mind he was anonymous (and he essentially was back then) so signing the cipher GAIK didn't really expose him as the killer in his mind.

This makes sense, as the new show thinks the 340 could have been written by a civilian (as opposed to military) and they entertained the idea that is was more "free form jazz" as opposed to "classical" which is when a Freudian slip could easily occur as opposed to a military "structure" that would have caught the "slip".

I'm sure someone has tried it, but i think it's a Vigenère cipher. Although i'm no expert. A Vigenère cipher, with just normal text would surely been broken by now. But it's not normal text, and add the fact of zodiacs misspellings on purpose to the equation. That is why a computer can't solve it. 

Vigenère cipher, was if i understand correctly, considered very strong for a long time, so it's not impossible that z liked it and made a few improvments himself. If you're not familiar with it and want to know more:
