  • SDK apps + 1.1.3 = a winning pair
    Natetrue has posted information regarding the 1.1.3 firmware workings, and it looks like 1.1.3 is ready for SDK apps.

    The main points he lists are:
    • Application data is now stored in /var/mobile instead of /var/root
    • Applications are now running as user mobile, not root
    • SpringBoard no longer requires SummberBoard for scrolling pages

    In other words, 1.1.3 is already for SDK apps to be installed, although the SDK is not out yet, nor are SDK apps.

      Yeah I just saw this over on his blog. Too bad it broke most of his apps, although he said Lights Out still works. This means a lot of work for some developers...

      So does this mean that their will NOT be a FW 1.1.4 before the SDK?
      if yes, then The Dev team can release the tutorial for jailbreaking 1.1.3!
      is this right? or am i missing something?

      Yes, but it also means a lot of documented work... which is nice.

      Not necessarily, but it definitely means one doesn't HAVE to come out before SDK apps.

      Well, the dev team is trying to be safe, just in case. There most likely will not be a 1.1.4 before the SDK release though.

      Yeah i think Apple has to put a lot of people aside just to block us, i mean their is no reason for 1.1.4 (considering the SDK) it would just re-lock it once again, for us hackers

      well, wouldn't you guys want to wait anyways for the SDK to be released, then not only will we have jailbroken phones with custom apps but we'll have apps which function better and should be more compatible with our phones, less glitchting, sure some apps are probably as good as they can be but maybe they don't work as well with 1.1.3. anyways, i think its a good idea to wait...

      Question... if the phone is upgraded to 1.1.3 and jailbroken will the phone pull apps from BOTH the Mobile directory AND the root directory (which is where Installer puts things)? Or will installer have to be modified to lump everything in the new place?...

      The applications themselves would have to be modified...individually. That's why most of them break. Don't know why he can access installer though.

      Then why are we waiting for the jailbreak to be released?

      that "hidden feature" isn't new. i'm running 1.1.1 and have it...

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the whole point of waiting 'til the SDK comes out is so that even if Apple does release a 1.1.4 update with the SDK they won't be able to fix the unlock method because they won't know how it was done.

      hey everyone
      lets take a minute to look at our selfs


      we have iphones

      we are better than every other living thing because we have iphones.


      and we can even make the iphone do whatever we want it to.

      so whenever you see someone walking downt the street talking on their Razr or the new sidekick, make sure to stop them and say "hey i have an iphone. look at it and how much better i am than you. worship me" and then take out your iphone and tease them untill they cry because they can never be as cool as you


      have a nice day everyone and remember you are way better than everyone else

      Well this means that the developers have even more work cut out for them....and I assume more of them will expect to be paid now for that extra work they have to do, possibly.

      Bagfoot you odd person...wtf...I hope you haven't spammed that message all over the place...

      IMHO, I think apple's IT people can/have figured out how 1.1.3 was/can be jailbroken without the DEVS "telling them" by releasing their method. Apple, like other companies, employs some of the smartest and best - former(and probably some still current)hackers. Our own Government does the same thing with hackers. Arrest them and offer them a job.

      NOBODY knows the iPhones workings better than Apple's Iphone techs, not even the DEV gods, period. I do love what the Devs have done for the iPhone unlockers and wish them continued success(i have donated). But come, on apple already knows how the Devs Jailbroke 1.1.3. MY 2 CENTS
