  • 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!

      Had to try several times (I suspect hammered servers and/or my school's network), but it worked great.

      Just tried it on my iPod Touch - went without a hitch. Make sure when you let it run its bit, and it kicks you back to the home screen, you WAIT until it locks the screen. THEN good to go.

      If I run this on my already-jailbroken 1.0.2 iPhone, will it change my internal IMEI number so that it does not match the number on the back of the phone?

      i bought a 1.1.1 iphone, then downgraded it to 1.0.2, downgraded the baseband as well from .04 to .03 (practically made it a 1.0.2). i did this a few weeks ago with a guide here....

      what exact process should i follow to be able to update to 1.1.1 (without bricking it), then jailbreak it, and finally unlock it and be able to use all the apps, phone options, messages, safari, itunes, etc.

      many thanks to you all the dev team

      Thanks for the info. I have 1.0.2 on my iPhone. It is not unlocked and I am running 3rd party apps along w/ Dock and Summerboard. Do I need to clean these out before upgrading to 1.1.1? I want to use the new Jailbreak method to get up to date.

      You can restore just fine. Why don't you want the installer?

      Check the Wiki, I created a guide recently on virginizing your 1.0.2 and then upgrading.

      whoa, freakin' AWESOME! i've already jailbreaked my iphone and everything... but what a great tool!

      yeah you have access to read and write, use winSCP or another server client.
      because iphonebrower and other applications would not let me, this might just be with my device, but winSCP is user friendly

      The downfall is you only have read/write access through SSH or SFTP. I can not get iBrickr or iPhoneBrowser to read the internals so I can drag and drop. Other than that, an awesome step forward.

      I have a 1.0.2 iPhone (unlocked, jailbreaked), if i want 1.1.1 do i have to do that really difficult looking virginizing procedure? or can i just install it, and do this, and unlock it?

      what would be the right command to drop nes roms into your iphone threw winscp or can you add a source to installer.app to dl the roms stirhgt from installer?
    1. dchurch21's Avatar
      dchurch21 -
      I dont know how to download roms straight from the installer.
      but this is how i do it in winSCP with no probs


      root/var/root/media/ROMs/NES

      last two need to be created, right click--->new---->directory---->type in "ROMs" NO qoutes..
      then open the ROMs directory you just created, and right click ---->new--->directory---->type in "NES" all caps no Quotation Marks

      EDIT: WE DO NOT ALLOW LINKS TO ILLEGAL DOWNLOADS.

      Hello,
      to those who are talking about read/write access problem.
      1) I think you should be clearer about what you are talking about (from which app, ...)
      2) I think you are talking about access through apps like iphonebrowser, ibrickr and so on.
      3) I had the same problem with previous ways of unjailing 1.1.1, I have solved my problem using the procedure described here:
      http://ericasadun.com/?p=25
      4) I have a working and jailbroken 1.1.1 iphone so I am not about to try a new procedure so I cannot confirm that point 3) will actually work with this way of doing although I don't see why it wouldn't
      5) ibrickr will still not give you file access as (at least in the case of the version I used last) it will detect 1.1.1 and not give you any other choice than downgrading. iphonebrowser will work, don't know about mac utilities
    1. Reako's Avatar

      The only way to get read/write access to is to update your phone and drop the new service into your phone. iBrickr works fine if you use the touchFREE method of jailbreaking, but it does not work until the new services is dropped using the debated method.

      I've currently got 1.0.2 unlocked with pacay and AnySim1.1,

      As I understand it this will allow me to use iTunes to upgrade to 1.1.1 so if I follow this method I take it, it will activate and jailbreak my phone again, with my current NON AT&T sim in the phone, can somone confirm this?

      Then I take it the upgrade will wipe out all my third party apps so I will need to get AnySim 1.1 back into the phone, however this app does not appear in installer and I know that ibrikr will not work with 1.1.1 so I'm confused how do I get AnySim1.1 back into my phone and can someone point me to a guide for whatever method will allow this.

      Thanks,

      Used to mod my SLVR L7 and now happy to have a new phone which promises as much fun
