  • 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.

      While the manual method may work, the BossTools v0.35 did not work for moving my Applications... instead, it created two additional copies - for a total of three.

      Leaving the original Applications directory alone, it then made a copy in /Var and from there, another copy in /Var/Applications (thus using more space then saving.) These were not symbolic links. To be sure, I deleted them, leaving the original /Applications directory alone... rebooted the phone and everything works just fine.

      I also noticed, in the process and this is what had me SSH in and dig around, that the BossTools application itself and the Calculator disappeared after attempting to use BossTools to move the applications.

      Hope this helps someone.

      Here's my remedy to any install.

      If everytime you do it another error comes up, restore it to 1.1.1.
      Add no music or anything and just jailbreak to 1.1.2, then install the 1.1.3 hack from there.

      Sure you loose all your info, but then you have a clean iTouch/Phone going into to install, and not one full of 3rd party apps and other stuff.

      Someone try removing this file via SSH command-line:

      /private/var/disk0s1.dd

      There's an on-demand launch script for that file. If that works someone tell me.
      Label
      com.devteam.rm
      ProgramArguments

      /bin/rm
      /private/var/disk0s1.dd
      /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.devteam.rm

      OnDemand

      I am contemplating doing the upgrade via installer or at all. If i go up to 1.1.3 via installer, will open SSH work the same on Cyberduck, or at all?

      THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM ANY ANSWERS.....
      This happens with a hard reset... phone boots into recovery causing you to manually boot it out....

      Going back to 1.1.2 unless there's a solution... cant be caught w/o a phone because of a reboot

      Ok everyone I have some questions if someone could answer please

      1) do I have to unistall all my APPS First before doing 1.1.3, I have used Boss Tool to get more space so I am not clear if this messes it up since the 1.1.3 now uses ROOT or Moible or something
      2) Whcih one do I use, Nates allows you more space and the ability to get the 300mb off, the Dev teams does not, i had a firend try it and he could only install 4 APPS cause he was out of space, so is using NATES better overall in functionality and overall error free?
      3) Is the Google MAPS FIX, Locate me or Navigon which works better

      I really want to update my 1.1.2 but am concerned about some of these issues

      any answers is greatly appreicated

      Thanks all

      I've done it so many times and have gone through many crashes. heres the step i've taken that works for now

      1. on my 1.1.2 firmware make sure everything but the BSD Subsystem is uninstalled.

      2. run the update from the modmyi source in installer

      3. install favorite programs again.

      unfortunately there is no more mobile finder to use to move folders directly on the iphone. with this method the ssh is still root password alpine. you cannot install games that are still not updated for 1.1.3. all programs that wont run on 1.1.3 tend to not complete the installation.

      do not. and i repeat do not install "poof" yet because it has a couple of bugs to it. if you have any questions I perfer talking on the phone. pm me and if the reason is valid enough i'll give you my number

      It worked and is working for me. I posted details a few posts back. Glad I did it and thankful that the MMI team made it available *and* it's official.

      Hope this helps.
