  • 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!

      Restored the phone to new... had to have Apple's help since it froze the first time.

      Still no YouTube. Found out its a problem on YT's end, not ours. The website doesn't have anything wrong with it connected to YT [as far as I can tell for ATT cust. and not still 'locked']

      im on the new jailbreakme.com method aswell and i got my youtube to work.
      Guide is as follows
      for youtube fix:
      get read/write access through winSCP(or mac software equivalent)

      in that software navigate to this path:

      and then stop...download http://www.modmyi.com/forums/attachm...4&d=1192357896

      this file contains 3 files inwhich you need to copy into that directory

      ***make sure you back up your files, in case something goes wrong...***

      still in this directory:/private/var/root/library/lockdown
      and you will see a folder that says something like "activation records"
      DELETE THIS FOLDER yet again back up these files for security reasons.

      save this and restart you iphone.
      this worked for me, 3 times, i like to restore and rejail my phone just to try and jailbreak it again, to see what kind of errors i run into, so i will learn how to fix them, and this worked all three times i have restored and re broke my phone to get you tube to work.

      **IF YOU WANT TO MOVE THIS POST TO THE CORRECT THREAD** but ive noticed that alot of confusion with this jailbreakme.com method that people say that there youtube dont work. This will fix it.

      Since most people using this jailbreak are using WiFi, I have one question about it. I have a wireless router that I have secured with a key. Is it necessary to "unsecure" my router to proceed with this jailbreak. I am concerned that once I begin this process, I will lose my WiFi due to it being secured. My iPhone was bought on iDay, updated to 1.0.1 when it came out, then 1.0.2 when it came out, and jailbroken and 3rd party apps installed. It has never been unlocked, btw. I then inadvertently updated to 1.1.1 thinking I would still be able to run 3rd party apps. Obviously, I was not able to, so I downgraded back to 1.0.2 with the 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 downgrade/jailbreak method using apptap, which is the current status of my iPhone.

      So again, I am wondering if once I delete all my 3p apps, restore, update to 1.1.1, if I will lose my ability to connect to my secured WiFi and should I un-secure it before I begin this process?

      No. As long as you can provide the correct password during the process, you should be ok.

      Hi guys. I have been following the forum for a while now and have really appreciated all your efforts.

      Anyways yesterday I got my new iPhone and I managed to jailbreak it in under 5mins straight out of the box. But now I am stuck.

      How do you get anySIM onto the phone. Do I have to use SSH and Fugu (I'm on a mac). If so what are the necessary steps?

      Thanks very much for all your hep guys. And thank you tons for the easy jailbreak.

      Here's a good guide. I think you will be in step #3.

      Thanks Truenorth but I was kind of after a bit more guidance in using Fugu. I tried this morning and couldn't connect to my iphone, wasn't sure what to put in Fugu.

      Anyone else know how to do this?

      I have done this and got it to work except for youtube. this is the message i get when i open you tube (or attempt to)

      You must first connect to iTunes with an internet connection to enable YouTube.

      Anyone else get this, anyone else know how to fix it?

      Hi guys,

      I've read most of the postesbut i have not seen anyone address this issue.

      I ran ijailbreakme.com. Worked great, ALL of my applications worked, even youtube is working fine with no problems.

      The pproblem I am having is that customize wont re-arrange the icons.
      when i go to re-arrange them in the customize menu, it looks like the are arranged the way i want them, but when i hit "save" it cycles through like it is saving the arrangement, but when i slide to unlock, they arent arranged where i want them,

      any suggestions.... ????

      please help

      YouTube fix:

      1. Download a zip file from here.

      2. Unzip it in any folder of your choice. You'll get these 3 files:

      device_publ ic_key.pem

      3. Copy them to this iPhone folder: /private/var/root/Library/Lockdown

      4. Look for this iPhone folder:


      If it doesn't exist jump to step 6.

      If it exists, go to the next step below (step 5).

      5. Edit data_ark.plist from the zip file and look for:


      Copy what is between

      ...and paste it in the same place in


      Jump to step 7.

      6. If you do not have the folder /private/var/root/Library/Lockdown/activation_records/

      - Create one
      - Copy the three files to it
      - Erase all files in the pair_records folder

      7. Reboot
