  • Awesome instant Jailbreak for iPhone and iPod Touch
    Wow... this is an incredible new development by hdm/metasploit, rezn, dinopio, drudge, kroo, pumpkin, davidc, dunham, and NerveGas both jailbreaks AND installs Installer.app on your 1.1.1 iPhone or your iPod Touch all in once click!



    Its as easy as opening Safari on your iPhone/iPod Touch, and browse to jailbreakme.com. Thats it! Scroll down, and hit "Install AppSnapp". Safari should disappear, and pop you back to the Home screen. Wait patiently for a minute - don't touch anything til it pops you back to the Slide to Unlock screen.

    Slide to unlock, and Installer.app will be installed on your iPhone/iPod Touch! You should prob install BSD Subsystem, Community Sources, and OpenSSH, and upgrade Installer.app if needed.

    Erica Sadun from TUAW also refreshes the good tip that combining Open SSH and sshfs (part of Mac Fuse) allows you to drag and drop files to/from your iPod Touch/iPhone directly from Finder.

    Thanks to all who worked on this - its a great development!

    UPDATE (thanks, mofolo): It now picks up whether the phone is activated or not..and if it isn't it'll activate it for you!

    If your already activated, it'll know and wont touch anything!

      after a couple of attempts:
      i had an unlocked (tmo), jailbroken, IPSF iPhone
      i did not do anything special, just upgraded with itunes, used method on
      iphonesimfree.com to jailbreak, and didnt even need to install the ipsf app again, once my phone restarted after the jailbreak it automatically connected to tmobile!
      for users like me, stop asking questions and read through all threads:
      if you dont have success, restore with itunes and try again it WILL work
      Good job DEV team

      I've been experimenting with sendsong and found that most of my ringtones dont work or they are erased when i sync with itunes. is there any other way to get custom ringtones on here without having to choose from the crappy selection the itunes store is offering us?

      Mine did the same thing and I really thought I screwed something up but ..... after some time (minutes) it restarted. Like it was just finishing up what needed to be done. Hope thats all your is doing.

      somewhere around 50th try safari crashed to the home screen and I waited about 20 minutes... nothing.

      giving up... trying touchfree again... it was screwey, and apps crashed all the time, but i wasn't stuck in apple's 1.1.1 land



      not saying it doesn't work, it obviously does for lots of people, but my particular path to it is somehow fubared.

      All having the problem of this not working.. are you attempting to do it while docked? If so, it won't work. I tried 4-5 times and it didn't work.. then i realized i was still on the dock, rofl. Undocked, and it worked the first time.

      jeremy, you have GOT to be kidding me.

      you'd think that would be WAAAY up there on a list of things to be sure of BEFORE trying this.

      Actually, ya, I tried it ONCE, undocked earlier today so I don't feel too bad.

      Not that it matters, I went back to touchfree and am jailbroken again. Just not the way the rest of y'all are. Leave it to me to "hack different".

      Ok if i have an OOB Iphone with 1.1.1 and i activated with Itunes and i run this application which claims that it checks to see for those who are already activated but im not sure if should trust it. So any1 that has the same conditions as me that ran this will it work? Also will my youtube still work after it?

      Yes it will work directly from an out of the box 1.1.1. firmware phone...just enter the website directly on the iPhone Safari Browser.

      YouTube will not work however as of today...but I'm sure they will have this patched soon.

      youtube does work
      search "you tube 1.1.1" on the forums
      here is the link to the topic
      http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthr...hlight=youtube
      scroll down a little ways and you will find a guide

      have to replace 3 files with "authenticated" files
      and delete activation history directory.
