  • 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!

      Does this method also activate the phone with a non-att sim? The site claims that it does but I just wanna know if anyone has tried this successfully.

      are you on mac or windows?

      windows use winSCP
      works like a charm

      yes, one of the steps for the tiff exploit is to turn on your wifi to download the jailbreak install

      Just SSH into your phone and drop the Services.plist into the directory. It will grant you read/write access without the use of SSH.

      OK...

      I hope I don't get mocked for this, because I have tried to read most of the posts... I have a 1.0.2 iphone (jailbroken - with apps on it), and I am using AT&T. Can I use the restore feature in iTunes, upgrade to 1.1.1, and then use the instant jailbreak?

      As long as you never unlocked your phone to use with another carrier, you'll be fine. That's the beauty about jailbreaking, you can undo everything with a simple restore. Just to let you know though, I recommend restoring your phone with iTunes first before performing the jailbreak.

      edit: and just in case you also were wondering, yes restoring the phone will delete everything. Music, Contacts, and of course any modifications you did (app wise).

      But like I said DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU HAVE AN 1.0.2 UNLOCKED PHONE, as far as 1.1.1 unlocked phone, not too sure.

      OK I jailbroke using touchfree on an oob 1.1.1. Everything works. I have been getting alot of crashes. I read to turn off walpaper and dim. That fixed so far. I want wal paper and all functions. Should I restore and try this jailbreak? Has there been any problems with crashing?

      Alright, I was able to get the apps to work. I had to install them while on WIFI. Edge did not work for me.

      Now, is there a way to set custom text message or email indicators?

      Thanks for everyone's help!

      OMG!!!!

      Jailbreaks iPhone/iPod Touch on 1.1.1. (checked)
      Patches the SpringBoard to load third party apps. (checked)
      Activates non-AT&T iPhones automatically, while leaving already activated iPhones alone. (checked)
      Fixes YouTube on non-AT&T iPhones automatically, while leaving already activated iPhones alone. (checked)
      Installs Installer.app v3.0b5 on the iPhone/iPod Touch. (check)
      The best part? No hacking / downgrading required!

      Sh*t Yeah !!!!!!

      What next??
      Maybe an Apple pie to go with this or even Apple updates via the installer…
