  • 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!

      Try restarting your phone And the launch the app 3 or 4 times (if it keeps crashing)and then restart again.

      I don't have wifi at home and have wifi turned off on the phone unless I'm in a hotel somewhere. I tried it 6 or 7 times and it finally worked. It probably just takes longer with edge than wifi so you thought it wasn't working.

      hmm.. so to install the app..(not talking about dowloading the app) so to install all the apps on the iphone your telling me you used edge for this?? so basically your using atnt to do this correct? because i believe you need wifi because i just tried and i cant install the apps unless wifi is on

      I've done this, and restarted a half dozen times. It just doesn't seem to want to work.

      I answered the question three times, what else do you want. I'm not here to argue with you. You couldn't get it to work on edge. I did.

      this maybe a long shot but try unistalling the whole thing and start all over again and see if that will work..its a long shot but it may or may not work

      uninstall all apps that are not working. Then go to a place in you house that has the best wifi signal. Then install one or two apps and return to your home screen. Restart your phone. Check the twi apps you installed. Take it slow and restart a bunch.

      I've done it using EDGE also. You just need to give it time man. Stop trying to be hard via the internet.

      SECONDLY, IF YOUR APPS ARE CRASHING FROM THE LOAD SCREEN, THEN UNINSTALL YOUR APPS, INSTALL BSD SUBSYSTEM, AND THEN REINSTALL YOUR APPS!
