  • 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 had a previously upgraded to 1.1.3 phone (initially followed Nate's method which initially worked, then crashed; only successful wasy to get the phone up was to restore to generally un-jail broke 1.1.3).

      Today I followed the downgrade instructions to downgrade to 1.1.1 to get back to 1.1.2 jailbroke; ran the developers jailbreak without a problem ... well appeared to run well; no phone service (on AT&T, never unlocked); otherwise everything seems to work fine. I searched through about 40 pages and didn't find a solution.... any suggestions?

      I dont believe so. I think it just activates it so you can bypass the iTunes activation

      If you use a PC XP, you have to install the winscp program, and through it, at the Command menu, execute this command.

      There are lots of other methods. Read the guides.

      ok well i am just pissed now. So the story is i had 1.1.2 and was happy with it, no complaint what so ever, then i came across Boss tools, the bigest pain in my @ss ever. I picked it up on installer cause it said it would prep my files for the update to 1.1.3 with the devteam break, what it really did is royally f'd my fone to the max. Thanks boss tools, now i get to the apple logo, it stays there for a while and just does the load circle over and over and vibrates like i am just pluging it in when it is connected to my comp. I hate this. Stick with 1.1.2 if it aint broke why fix it, cause apple didn't do it all rite to begin with i guess.. thanks mac! the custom colorware paint job makes it a good looking paper weight though.

      Don't know what bosstools did but I can assure you your iphone is recoverable. Sounds like the Application directory is hosed and springboard is not starting up. Depending on circumstances you may be able to ssh into the phone and repair the Application directory.

      Also, you can downgrade back to 1.1.2 (via 1.1.1) and everything will be back to where you were, i.e. your iphone is in no way 'bricked'. Even if you accidentally upgraded the baseband firmware you will at least have an expensive itouch.

      so if i just put it in to recovery mode and restore will i be able to downgrade and then back up to 1.1.2 & second if i don't have time to do that yet will my phone work or are you saying that it will basically be an itouch?

      I had my Iphone updated to 1.1.3 and everything worked fine..except one thing was that it would automatically reboot itself after a while and restart in recovery mode. I would then have to start from 1.1.1 again. Anyone have any advice as to what the problem would be?

      I got an AT&T Corporate account and I'm using my iPhone in Puerto Rico with the area code (787). I use different methods for unlocking the phone. The last one was using Independence, I upgrade to from 1.0.2 to 1.1.1 and downgrade to 1.0.2 and upgrade again to 1.1.1. My phone is active and unlocked for 3rd apps. Its secure for me to use the Dev Team method to upgrade to 1.1.3? Which functions can I loose? Are the entire features from the 1.1.3 will work on my iPhone? Thanks for the help!

      PS. Im a little confuse who can without problem use this method....

      I dont know for sure but I had the same issue with mine a few times and it ended up just being stuck in headset mode (if I pluged in the stock headphones I could hear sound) so what I did was just insert and remove them a few times and it worked fine. This fixed it every time.
