  • 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!

      HELP! I got to set up WiFi but I cannot connect to jailbreak.com. I keep getting an instant error:

      Safari can't open the page because it can't find the server.

      I tested other sites - yahoo.com, etc. - still the same result.

      What am I missing here?

      UPDATE: Whew! Can you think of anything stranger? I had set a 10-digit password on my router. I kept entering what I thought was the correct one, 1234000000, and the router kept accepting it, with the iPhone showing a strong WiFi signal. Later, it rejected the same password! So I tried another one, 1234000001, and it let me! I had made no changes to the router! When it allowed that second password, I was able to connect. Weird! I'm up and running now. AppSnap is the best thing since sliced bread.

      if you get the same error with every site then it might be the server, make sure you are connected online, try to shut down the phone for a little bit

      If you're upgrading to 1.1.1 for the first time, be aware there is a settings>general>network>data roaming preference that allows you to turn off edge for data and the default setting is off.

      Go to jailbreakme.com on your computer and you will see a FAQ's in there it tells you that this program detects if you need to be activated and it does it for you, you do not need to downgrade in fact you have to be at 1.1.1 to use it.

      you can safely surf the site to look at the help pages it will only download the program if you connect via your iphone

      THIS WORKED AND DOES SYNC!!!! This process was a breeze. i initially tried this and i guess the server for http://jailbreakme.com was busy. but i waited like 2 mins and tried again and it was done in exactly 10 secs flat!!!!!! Thanks for this great development!!!!

      So, I went to the link...

      It kicked me back to the home screen with all the icons, I let it sit for about 5min. It never kicked me off or tried to lock. I turned it off, then back on. Nothing.

      Do I just need to do it again? Did it install anything at all? I noticed my YouTube doesn't work now (it says "the video cannot be played" or something, but all the video pictures load just fine).

      Should I restore and try again... or just try again as it is?

      Weird thing is, the wifi in my house is secure, so I put in my password and then my computer stopped working... my computer wouldn't go to any webpages... until just now when I told my iPhone to forget the network. Maybe I should try at school...?

      i had problems getting this to work. but i found a solution to ppl using wifi. If it doesnt work on wifi disable it and go on edge. for some reason it wouldnt work on my home wifi. but worked on edge.? im clueless to why it happened this way but watever! =)

      Open SSH and WinSCP questions:

      1) I just want to be able to edit a text file on the Iphone. I can do this with WinSCP right? Do I need to install Open SSH to use it?

      2) Problem with OpenSSH install. I installed BSD Subsystem and then when I go to install Open SSH (from STE Packaging), it says I need BSD Subsystem installed. what gives?
