  • 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!

      Lol, I don't what the deal is. I've followed several different guides to this and everytime one thing or another doesn't work. Restored too many times. It even froze and I had to call Apple for help...

      In the end I paid the original price for the phone... a few bucks shouldn't phase me [I'll wait until Feb for Apples Apps].

      Props to anyone who got everything working right... lucky! Lol. I am jealous! And to the people who figured this out... very smart. Nice job!

      I was trying to SSH into my phone to test it out prior to trying the jailbreakme.com method and I met with a problem hopefully one of you good people can help me with

      I cannot get SSH (dropbear) to appear in my 1.0.2 iphone I've tried to install it with ibrikr but no luck. Thinking back I had a battery drain problem with dropbear and tried to switch it off with services.app that did not solve the battery drain problem so I uninstalled it with ibrickr

      could it be that I uninstalled it when services.app had it turned off and now it will not show in my phone even after re installing. would there be a fix for this ?

      Can anyone advise how else I could get ssh into my phone and working so that I can test and use winscp prior to attempting jailbreakme

      Update, dont seem to be able to intall anything through ibrickr now, I've reinstalled ibrikr on my pc and rebooted my phone but still cannot get any apps to show up even though ibrkr recognises my phone and goes through all the motions

      I need help with this one guys, I cant attempt jailbreakme without trying out winscp and ssh on my phone first to make sure I can do it. any other ways to get this application on my phone for a pc user.

      I always click thanks

      www.slovix.com/touchfree/jb does the exact same thing as jailbreakme.com but it does it better. The touchfree one gives you updates once safari crashes (tells you what it is doing and what percentage it is done). It also installes open SSH with an on/off switch for it. I tried jailbreakme on my dad's ipod touch, and it totally screwed it up. Then we restored it and tried the touchfree one and it worked like a champ...

      My iphone recently crashed and required a restore. So i decided to give jailbreakme.com a try and it did not work. When trying to load the page my whole phone crashed, not just safari. So I did another restore and went with touchfree, and it worked like a charm. Gave me some quick status updates then rebooted my phone and I had installer back.

      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
      you have to make sure the number of springboard icons in Customize/rsBT order, is set to 16 under the settings tab. it should work then

      I tried jailbreakme.com and it installed Installer, but none of the apps worked, so I restored and did the www.slovix.com/touchfree/jb method... worked right away, all the apps are working, however I too cannot SYNC now. iTunes doesn't even recognize my iPhone when it's docked.

      Any help??

      i finally got installed. I cannot get on my wifi. I could on day 1, when i had just bought this iphone. I tried to turn on/off airplane mode, wifi mode. changed my router wireless settings to no security, wpa security, wep security - no avail.

      Iphone just doesnt see the wifi anymore.

      When i went to jailbreakme.com on edge - it would start loading the webpage, conceited software.. kick me to home page. and sit for 10 minutes. It never soft reset, or locked phone. I had to do it like 4 times and i never touched it in between. Finally i hard rebooted a few times and the installer.app was there.

      There was no meter it was installing so i think that was the problem, on edge the connection probably wasnt reliable so it just stopped a few times and i had no idea.

      Now im stuck because i cannot SSH without an ip, and i cant get an IP without wifi... any suggestions?

      Have you tried rebooting your router? If you have a password, you will have to enter it again just once.

      About EDGE: know that it is much, much slower than wifi. You'll have to be extra patient with AppSnap.

      Thank you so much! Everything went perfectly. I can confirm that you definitely do need to restore to factory settings if you're upgrading from a jailbroken 1.0.2.

      My previous ATT plan activated without a hiccup... as if it were the real iphone plan. I wont' ask questions!!

      Hey, that's a lengthly post...

      I've been to the pages talking about how easy it is to use this new method by simply visiting the http://jailbreakme.com site. However, all seems to be based on virgin or activated iFones.

      What I have is an unlocked iFone undergone the iNdependence + anySim process, which comes with firmware 1.1.1. I just wonder if this method of installing installer.app still work on that?

      I don't need anySim as I already have it on my phone, but I need other apps and the best way is to use installer and get those via wifi...

      thanks.

      It looks like crrb8007, spdrcrckt and I all have the same problem. Jailbreakme.com didnt work for me, but the touchfree site did. Everything was fine, until I came home and plugged into my mac.

      No Iphone. No charging. Nothing. I think I am going to restore and try the process again, but I love the installer and associated apps. Any Idea how to get it to Sync? I have 1.1.1 FW OSX 4.10 and Itunes 7.4 FTR. TIA guys.

      I had the same issue. Restored and decided to give jailbreakme.com another chance. This time it worked, and synced with itunes....... I guess I take back what I said about the slovix one working better....

      Yea it looks like the slovix one has problems with syncing iTunes... I did a restore, and am going to be doing jailbreakme.com soon, or nothing at all.

      This happened to me from slovix. I would try jailbreakme, but I don't know how to restore. How are you supposed to restore if your computer won't recognize the phone?

      EDIT: I did recovery mode. Just didn't want to risk it at first but itunes found it. I'm trying jailbreakme, I'll update here after because i like to follow up on things

      EDIT 2: Just use jailbreakme. I tried it with edge but I kept getting text message interrupting so I found wifi and did it there. Slovix sucks
