  • 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!

      If they can install Installer on it.

      Why can't they just activate it as well?..
      They should have 2 options -
      One button for jailbreaking, and one for Jailbreaking and Activating.

      Im sure if they can install apps they can easily modify files.

      Use something like IphoneBrowser to drag and drop Installer.app folder into your iphones applications folder.

      Hmm, not sure on this one, but i'd think that visiting jailbreakme.com again would attempt jailbreak - overwrite existing identical files and then just install installer again.

      Not Confirmed - be careful.

      After using this site every time I open safari it will not allow me to enter a URL or browse my bookmarks. The home button does not return me to the home screen and the only way to get back functionality is by resetting the phone (both buttons).

      I have already tried a restore and it still isn't working. Any ideas?

      Works just as expected. Way easier than all the other methods I have used and the most functional. A++

      Thank you

      Hello folks!

      I just got my brand new 1.1.1 virgin iPhone and have been trying to access it since.

      Using Jailbreakme.com's instructions, I have bypassed and accessed Safari. I can surf everywhere and anywhere! It's great!

      But when I goto www.jailbreakme.com, it shows me the exact same page you would get on a PC - "You must visit this URL on your iPhone/iPod Touch to be able to install AppSnapp."

      I've tried it at home, rebooted my router, restored my iPhone firmware (using iphone.unlock.no firmware restore instructions for 1.1.1) and now am trying from my workplace. Same results.

      I wonder what guidance the pros can offer.

      Fixed it. Just did the sleep/home button restore and iTunes recognized the ifone. Did a restore smoothly utilizing the shift+restore method cuz i don't have internet access at home.... LOL you need internet access to activate your ifone. Didn't know that so i had to spend a whole night without being able to make/recieve anything. That sucked.
