  • 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!

      OK, I got it to load. I had to use WIFI to do it. Can you not use Edge? Anyway, I installed some apps but none work. They all go into the program and kick back out.
      Any tips?
      Thanks!

      I wrote some posts back. I now have upgraded and unlocked successfully. I had an 1.02 iPhone unlocked with Anysim and then unlocked with iphonesimfree v1.5 (paid unlocking method) over the top (don't ask why). I decided to run iphonesimfree v1.6 over v1.5 and then restore and upgrade to 1.1.1 via itunes. I was still worried that there would be remnants of Anysim and by not revirginizing my iphone I'd brick it. But this was not the case. It upgraded fine and I jailbroke it using the method on this thread and unlocked to with the latest iphonesimfree unlocker (v1.7). It syncs fine with itunes but I haven't yet had the chance to install a swag of apps. Just wanted to share my experience incase it helps someone.

      I figure 15 tries is enough.

      It's obviously not going to work for me. Stuck in 1.1.1 land until someone gets any bright ideas as to why it does nothing at all on my freshly restored 1.1.1 iphone.

      Hi Poetic_Folly,

      Firstly, thanks for this news... From the number of posts here you can see how much of a stir it has made.

      I also read your excellent 4 part guide for virginizing the 1.0.2 and upgrading to 1.1.1 using a Mac.

      I've read every one of the posts, many people happy some people confused.

      I believe that many 1.0.2 people with unlocked phones are worried and just want the cleanset description of how to upgrade their phones to 1.1.1 working with non ATT sims. (apologies to all those who are happily using ATT) :-)

      So here is my question:
      If I do the following will my phone be 1.1.1 and unlocked (able to use a non ATT SIM)?
      1- Virginize my unlocked 1.0.2 phone.
      2- Simply connect my phone to iTunes and have it upgrade my phone to 1.1.1
      3- Run this software.

      If not, I know MANY of us Windows users would appreciate a guide similar to the 4-part guide thaht you did for Mac users.

      I know those guides take a very long time and effort to do (I'm really not blowing smoke) but you have no idea how much they really help those of us who are not so 'savy' with the iPhone unlocking/upgrading...

      Many thanks in advance,
      J.

      I was having the same problem. Just keep going back to the link in Safari and clicking the link. It'll work sooner or later. Just give it a few minutes between tries.
