  • 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.

      Got a popup window about 15 minutes ago that says Warning running out of disk space, delete some photos or videos. The dismiss button is gray...so can't push that and I've been hanging in limbo since then...no progress. The programs been running for about an hour and 15 minutes now. There's only about 5 photos on the phone and no videos. I had uninstalled all but about 6 apps before running this program Advise?

      Had the same message. It is fine. The package takes a lot of space until processed.

      I have yet to update to 1.1.3 because of the apps like customize, summerboard and categories not working, however, no one has said anything about iswitcher. Does iswitcher still work, if so, theres the summerboard solution. Thank you to the dev team for this, you guys are awesome. Please keep us posted on the status of current apps that dont work with 1.1.3, as soon as thats fixed, i am in!

      I had a gig free on my iPhone, but during the process the warning message came up "You are running out of disk space. Please delete some photos or videos."

      Behind that message is the spinning logo that comes up when it is processing something. Been that way about an hour and a half now.

      Holding in the home button doesn't do anything, so gonna power it down and back up. Wish me luck...

      And it wouldn't boot. In recovery mode. Restoring now. :-(

      I know this has been asked several times, but it has yet to be answered.

      Does this jailbreak method work on the Ipod Touch?

      Ok so just to get this straight with all that's been going on with 1.13... Nate released an unofficial release of his jailbreak method apart from the Devs which was 'unsanctioned' which appears to break some things after finished and this version IS the jailbreak created by the DEV team in conjunction with the Elite team or is this another release made by someone separate from the DEV and Elite teams and we are still waiting for the official 1.13 jailbreak which could come around SDK time? I just want to make sure because I want to be loyal to the DEV and Elite teams who I have trusted their work ever since I've been hacking myphone and have always seemed to make reliable methods of hacking...Anyone know?

      Upgrade worked great!
      Then I had problems accessing via SSH -> made it finally work.
      However: Summerboard is installed, though I can't access it. Any ideas?

      just a quick question, i did a search but couldn't find the answer.

      How do we go about deleting the 184MB Restore file that's left over?

      ssh/sftp or another means? where is it located in the directory?

      thanks for any assist.

      Mine has been stuck with the same message for the past 30 mins can you confirm that the upgrade does work even when you get the message because at the moment it seems to have hung?!

      I apologize for the stupid question, but running installer 3.0b10 and BSD subsystem 2.0 the only 1.1.3 upgrade I see is the one posted by natetrue. Where is the development team's 1.1.3 upgrade located and what is it called?

      I used bigboss tools to relocate my apps folder and my wallpapers folder. Now I read that this still works even after relocating those folders so I understand that part but even after relocating those folders it says that I have 42 megs out of 300 free on /. Now will I still be able to download and use this method for upgrading to 1.13 (which would mean it downloads the file to the media portion of your HDD) or do I need to have at least 184 or 300 Megs free on my / dir to use this method of upgrading successfully?

      Im on the previous jailbreak and all my stuff works just fine, the only thing that doesnt work is locate me feature in google maps. And I think thats cause we cant upgrade our baseband. But if I cant run the SDK apps then Ill switch to this method, but for now Im satisfied with my results.

      Thats weird, it posted 3 times?

      Anyone else having iissues with installer crashing when it starts to install an app?

      It's not on everything, but for example BossTools and BossPrefs will not install, installer will just crash.

      Didn't have this problem yesterday with the first jailbreak, but after I started over with the Dev Teams jailbreak I'm having this issue.
