  • Use Installer to Jailbreak 1.1.3 - MMi Installer Repo
    1/29/08 pf update: This method uses the Dev Team's jailbreak method. They have now released their own Installer version of it on the ConceitedSoftware Community Source, so we will be removing ours.

    1/31/08 update: Regardless of whether you have ATT or not, say YES to hacktivation using this method - if you do not, iTunes will throw an error and not let you use your iPhone until you restore to 1.1.1.

    Digg It!

    Hey! So we've made it even easier to Jailbreak 1.1.3 using the Dev Teams jailbreak method. You will now find 1.1.3 Dev Team Jailbreak in installer, provided to you by the ModMyI repository.

    Poetic_Folly and I have written up a package and tested it thoroughly and it appears that there are no issues running this Jailbreak from Installer

    Requirements
    • Jailbroken 1.1.2 phone
    • Newest version of BSD Subsystem -- version 2.0
    • Latestest Update of Installer.app -- version 3.0b10 (If you are not using the newest version installer will not work on 1.1.3)
    • Phone connected via wifi (its a large download)
    • Settings->General->Autolock SET TO NEVER

    All you need to do is find the 1.1.3 Dev Team Jailbreak package in Installer and run it. The rest will be done for you. Once done (about 20 mins - some reports have been as long as 50 minutes) your phone will restart and you will be updated and jailbroken to 1.1.3!

    Refresh Your Installer Sources to See It

    F.A.Q.
    • I'm on 1.1.1, can't I just install this from there? No. If you're on 1.1.1, follow the guides to update to 1.1.2 jailbroken (and unlocked if you need it), THEN run this from Installer.
    • I already did NateTrue's jailbreak method. Is there a difference? Should I do this one? You don't have to. Supposedly NateTrue's method will break functionality needed to support official 3rd party apps when they come out in February, so it is a good idea to use this method instead.
    • Ok, but how do I erase Nate's method and use this one? You'll have to use iTunes to downgrade all the way to 1.1.1, then follow guides to get back to a jailbroken 1.1.2, and then run this script.
    • What about Google Maps' new features? Do they work any better with this method? Just like NateTrue's method, this does not update your baseband, just your firmware. So yes, you'll still have the same issues with Google Maps not wanting to locate. The going method to fix this is install Navizon, open it and have it find you, then go back to Google Maps and it should work.
    • Will my ringtones/sound/SSH/EDGE/mouthwash still work after I do this? Sure.
    • What about my applications? Do I need to delete them? Will they still be there in 1.1.3? You don't need to delete them, but you will need to reinstall them when you get to 1.1.3. NOTE: SummerBoard and Customize don't work with 1.1.3 yet.
    • Does this method clean out that 185 MB restore file it downloads? No. You'll need to delete it still once you get to 1.1.3.
    if you don't want to use installer but would still like to update via the dev teams method we have MANUAL INSTRUCTIONS

    THIS IS THE DEV TEAMS METHOD so the normal issues are there, some ppl it hangs at the end. IF you want to watch a log of whats going in while you are on 1.1.2 ssh in and run /Applications/Installer.app/Installer then use installer on your iphone to run the jailbreak. You will see a log of whats going on in the ssh window.

    When completed and on 1.1.3 only if you having a problem syncing use scp to copy over syncfix.sh file from this archive to / directory of your iphone. The ssh in and run syncfix.sh. Your syncing problem will be fixed.

      I know with NateTrue's method, if you have a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone, you have to upgrade to 1.1.3 and then downgrade to 1.1.1 or 1.1.2. However with the new dev team method do we need to have gone from 1.1.3 and dowgraded to jailbroken 1.1.2?
      Or can we just do it w/ a 1.1.2 jailbroken phone that has never been to 1.1.3?

      I've been waiting to upgrade and still have a 1.1.2 jailbroken that has never been upgraded to 1.1.3

      Ok so I'm isntalling apps and iPhysics packs and nothing is showing up then I finally got Bosstools installed and then open it up and see it says I have 0 out of 266 megs left on / so I'm guessing the 1.13 files have taken up all my space and that's why I can't get apps installed.... so now like EVERYONE else I'm wondering where the hell the large files are from the upgrade and how I delete them?

It sat at the 3/4 status mark (eat a sandwich) for about 20 minutes, then I got the swirly circle for about 10 seconds and the phone rebooted into the connect to itunes screen and just sat there. It was impossible to boot it with ibrickr even, I had to do an itunes restore to 1.1.1

      Anyone w/ 1.1.2 OTB (jailbroken) run into any issues using this method? Just curious as it seems that those of us w/ 1.1.2 OTB are typically a bit behind those with earlier OTB firmware versions...

If I connect my phone to iTunes will it screw things up or will it just put me into 1.13 without the jailbreak? I can deal with it not being jailbroken for a day until I have time to jailbreak it again... suggestions?

      I know a post that starts with "sorry if this is a stupid question" will be immediately ignored... so now that I have prefaced with something else let me ask my stupid question: Where is the BSD subsystem in installer, or what source does it come from because i looked under all aps and I can't find it. how do I upgrade it. thanks!
      oh! and i was still wondering if I can use the dev teams 1.1.3 jailbreak method on a phone that has never been upgraded to 1.1.3. (is the baseband worked out)
