  • 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!

      crap!!! It was all fine yesterday, then today when I refreshed installer, it said there was an update, and now my phone is frozen, I restart it, and it comes up with the default theme but I had a SB theme on it. And then it freeze3s up on the home screen. Dang it, I bet I have to reboot and lose everything now, crap. Anyone else having this issue?

      Hi everyone! This is my first time on this board, and I'm hoping you can shead some light on all this for me...

      I finally got my 1.1.1 to jailbreak and Installer on, and I downlaoded Customize, SummerBoard, and SendSong. Customize will open to the front chicken page and then closes immediately. SendSong opens to a blank page and closes immediately. SummerBoard opens and appears to be functional... BUT... after chosing a theme and changing settings, it will appear to be updating but never changes the appearance.

      So it's looking like none of the apps are actually working.... I did scrolls through all the pages of posts and I only saw a few addressing this- one said to just keep trying. I have tried more times than I can count and none of them are working.

      Is it just luck of the draw whose will work and whose won't?

      Yes I did. The installer update took awhile but I was really PATIENT to let it do its thing (Not good to restart the phone like that as it could just be a slow server).

      It seem like it was not responding but I just let it sit there & the upgrade finally went through. I did a soft reset & all is good.

      I can't get it to work and iPhonebrowser isn't showing the folder I need to add the plist file to. Tired SSH with winscp and got nowhere fast.


      any help would be appreciated... I want my nes emulator back

      FYI Sendsong is VERY flakey. Only half my ringtones work, and whenever I turn the phone off then on, they delete out of my ringtone selection menu.

      thank for you're feedback but I'm not able to update itunes or restore Iphone. I cant reboot iphone after holdind down home and turn on/off button at the same time. Iphone only displays "Please connect to itunes" when I'm already running itunes and nothing else. When using itunes to check for update software it claims uable to do so because error message (9). And it freezes during restore when its 1/8 into installation. Any sugguestions?

      shotglass5050 hi how are you, im sorry your going through this. I have no answer for you but to ask you are you on wifi or direct connect for internet access? If your on wifi try to get closer to your router. Me personally i would re install itunes. Yes that will wipe out your iphone and all the information and make you start all over again but i back up my iphone every three days. Im just brainstorming here. lol. I will ask a friend of mine he hacked his phone long before these sites were up. He helped me. I will get back to you on this one. Sorry i wasnt much help. I believe that the itunes is suppose to be at 7.4.3 if yours isnt update your itunes

      Hi Inutz, my friend had the some problem & just tried the steps again & it worked. Just might need try it again & be patient as the server could be slow also during the update of the Installer.

      Yes, that was not answered yet, and I have the same question. What are the steps to activate 1.1.1 because so far I have known only the downgrade method. Also that doesnt mean that there is a way around the 60$ unlocking fee.. right? And Im talking about windows/PC.
