  • 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!

      All you have to do is search. This thread is not for that particular subject.


      P.S. Look up about 5 posts to get a head start.

      How does this affect ringtones? Is there a fairly simple way to still put custom ones on? I do not have any wireless connection in my house BTW if that makes a difference.
      Thanks for all your help!

      I know I must be missing something basic but I can't figure it out.

      Had 1.0.2 with apptapp Yay! was great.

      Finally took the hook when touchfree4 came out. Did a restore to 1.1.1 and ran touchfree... but have had problems with programs crashing and jumping back to the slide to unlock screen all the time so decided I needed a different tack on this. Did another restore, and tried the new "jailbreakme.com" and it doesn't work. Said screw it and tried using the touchfree4 files again and THEY don't work.

      So am I stuck in 1.1.1 with no apps?

      That's funny you ask, because i just got mine fixed. Ringtones are simple..

      Get Sendsong, edit a song, add it to your iTunes library, right-click "Convert Selection to AAC". Sync, find it on Sendsong, Send to ringtones.. and boom, you have it back.

      Has anybody run this with an already-jailbroken 1.0.2 iPhone? I'm curious to see how it worked and if you had to restore it beforehand. Also, does it change the IMEI number?

      I have an unlocked and jailbroken iPhone currently running 1.02. I want to go to 1.1.1. so I can try this new jailbreaking process. As I understand it, because it is unlocked using Anysim I will need to go through the lengthy virginizing process. I am hesitant to do this. However, for reasons not worth going into a while back I ran the IPSF unlock over the top of the Anysim unlock. I know I'm in an extreme minority here but I think this might change my situation. Does this mean I still have to virginize or can I simply restore in iTunes and then upgrade to 1.1.1?

      Thanks for you help.

      I had no problem downloading it. I did have a problem when I tried to run installed programs. The icon would show up for the new program, but when I tried to use it the icons leave like the program is going to start, then it goes back to Home page.

      My iphone is att legit. I have 1.1.1 installed.
      I do also have a password protect on it, don't know if that has anything to do with it.

      The summerboard new one worked.
      The ants program worked.
      the crossy snowglobe did not... in fact that was when my iphone started flashing horizontal white lines over and over, it also had long lines of ants with the flashing.

      Others that didn't work, the dice game, the Aquarium, sketches

      the only thing that works are the themes.

      Too close to Halloween for me, I might try again after I hear from others that have installed the new jailbreak for 1.1.1

      Anyone else have any problems? Thanks

      Worked perfectly. After spending half the day trying to figure out the DevTeam's jailbreak and springboard patch, I stumbled upon this while in the final steps and almost pissed my pants after trying it. Easiest jailbreak ever.

      Customize did not work though even after two uninstalls and reinstalls. I'll give it another try later though.

      It didn't work for me. I updated to 1.1.1 then accessed the site. It kicked me out of Safari, then nothing. (even after waiting 5 minutes) Tried again and rebooted but I still have no installer icon. Any suggestions?
