  • 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!

      Do I need to bother uninstalling my 3p apps before I upgrade from 1.0.2 to 1.1.1? I realize that the apps will have to be reinstalled, but my question is whether the restore/upgrade process actually deletes all the files or just makes them unusuable.

      [Just trying to keep the file system somewhat clean ]

      Installed and worked great.
      Installed SSH, however I can't SFTP since it does not recognize the password.
      Is it still root and dottie or did something change?

      I bought my iPhone a few weeks ago, downgraded to 1.0.2 and used this guide http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=11966 to activate and jailbreak and start installing every app i could find. now i want to go back to 1.1.1. On the AppSnapp website its says u can do this on an unactivated iphone.. I dont have a at&t sim card (actually i dont have a sim card at all) so does this activate the phone for me?

      Ill make 3 I just tried to do it for a co-worker on his itouch and same thing. Waited till the unlock screen (his was password) protected. And nothing was there. And the bummer thing is I think the TIFF expolit has now been fixed... So Im not too sure what to tell him now.

      Has any1 tried to do this from the activate through itunes start screen by accessing the safari browser through contacts behind the emergency call app?

      I tried this with no luck usin ijailbreak. Some1 should give it ago, it may make it possible to jailbreak an unactivated iPhone so that u can activate thru independence without downgrading...

      Now that wud b ingenious

      If u want to try this there is a tutorial sum where google it or search the forums

      It goes sumthin along the lines of press *#307# then call then delete that number using the back button in the right top corner then type 0 and call then answer then hold then decline and contacts shud come up make a new contact nd tha address above then save nd click on it the screen shud freeze up afta an error press home nd quicky select ur acess point make sure it is open as u cant type in a key then ur screen shud freeze up on try emergency call restart nd ur phone should b connected to ur wifi follow the steps above to get bak to contacts nd click on tha link hopefully the page will load nd u can try appsnap

      Post corrections if necessary thats off tha top of my head
