  • [ GUIDE UPDATE ] Getting Started in OS X
    I've updated the OS X Getting Started iPhone modding guide to include the latest firmware and jailbreak methods.

    I apologize for the delay in that and the 1.1.2 upgrade and unlock guide I just posted, cash and I have been super busy. That OS X Getting Started link will always have the current Getting Started (jailbreak, activate, install Installer) method. Older guides will change to new URL's as they get older (just the date added on the end of the URL).

    Just letting you guys know what's going on...

    Cash just got his Windows box set up, so we should see Windows versions of these guides in the next few days.

      Great work, but might be worth mentioning you need to use Java 5 to run the jailbreak.jar. At least I had to no luck with 1.4.3, until I changed the the default java version 5.
      Which version did you use as a default?

      Thank You. The only step that differed for me was on the last page, after OktoPrep when I plugged into iTunes, it did not see it as a new phone or even cue me to change the name. Other than that, all is well.

      I'm stuck....after I Restored, I got lost.

      So, I started from the top but I can't get past the first step...no options except itunes requesting I put the sim in the phone.

      Good point. I didn't even look at mine, it is set to J2SE 5.0. I will add this to the guide.

      First step requires you to put it into Recovery Mode by holding down Home and Sleep - if you do that, iTunes will not be asking for a SIM.

      The 3rd page of the guide details jailbreaking 1.1.2, which installs Installer.app in the process..
