  • 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!

      Please somebody answer this questions:

      1) Can I restore my phone to 1.1.1 and then try this method?

      2) Will this unlock the iphone for T-mobile?


      Thanks.

      i don't really know, but i have always been a firm beliver in updating all software to the newest version (if its hackable ). new versions usually come out for a reason, such as stability and new features. of course sometimes they are harmful, so always do research before you update if you have modded your phone

      Is that "lose read-write" statement true? It seems to me that after you install BSD and SSH from installer then it should be able work with Transmit or Cyberduck, right?? How else would you get NES roms on there?

      Also.. how do you recomend activating the phone with a previous ATT account (locked phone, just not iphone plan). I think i'm finally ready to upgrade to 1.1.1, but I need to know that i'll be able to get past activation!

      Thanks.
      My understanding is that this will Jailbreak the iPhone, not unlock it.

      Were you able to sync with iTunes?

      If anyone has trouble with selecting a WiFi network before the screen times out, try this ol' trick.

      Instead of creating just the contact with the jailbreakme.com url, first create one with
      Code:
      prefs://F1
      Then create the
      Code:
      http://jailbreakme.com
      Launch the prefs:// url first to let you take all the time you need to select a wifi network, as well as disable your autolock (which i recommend).
      Then go ahead and launch the jailbreak link

      You have to have an activated iPhone, yes. Follow one of the guides in the guides section to do so.

      Check the guides section, I created a "virginize 1.0.2 then upgrade" guide a few days ago.

      thanks foe the concern

      UPDATE!
      turns out i did have read/write access.
      but IPHONEBROWSER prog will not work with this jailbreak
