  • 1.1.3 Jailbreak Goes Public!
    Per NateTrue's blog, the 1.1.3 jailbreak is official! UPDATE: The jailbreak is now for Windows and OS X both. Here's the OS X jailbreak download. (non-member mirror)

    You must have a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken iPhone already for this to work (or jailbreak yours).

    Here's the brief details, before we get our full guide up:

    - Start with a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone with Installer.app installed.
    - Plug in your phone via USB to your computer.
    - Download, extract, and run iBrickr Special 1.1.3 jailbreak edition (non-member mirror) (ibrickr.exe in the archive).
    - iBrickr will determine what firmware you are running on your phone and make sure you can run the update.
    - iBrickr will then guide you through the process of obtaining and modifying the 1.1.3 firmware (make sure to read everything thoroughly).
    - iBrickr will upload the new firmware image to your phone. Note that this only puts the file on your phone and does not modify it at all, yet.
    - When iBrickr finishes (should take about 10 minutes), it will tell you to go to Installer and install the "1.1.3 soft upgrade" package. Do that.
    - When the installer finishes (this should take another 10-15 minutes), your phone should reboot with a fresh activated 1.1.3 firmware.
    Note: There is a bit of controversy surrounding this release. It seems NateTrue and the iPhone Dev Team have parted ways over this release - they believe the legality is questionable, NateTrue believes it is within rights. MMi remains neutral until more info is released. At the moment, it seems there's a rumble in the Bronx, so to speak.

    Update: from NateTrue:
    And zdziarski thinks there's more in the patches than there really is. It's just identifying pieces, so that the patcher software knows where to cut and paste and modify. And some kernel caches. Nothing big.

      major problems...

      I had 1.1.2 unlocked, tried Mac update to 1.1.3. Didn't realise I was low on disk space, and I think this is where the problem started. In any case, I proceeded with the update like normal, however when it rebooted after installing within Installer, it came up with the connect to iTunes logo. So I did, tried a 1.1.1 restore, however when Verifying the Restore it said "An Unknown Error has Occurred," and the iPhone restarted and then went back to the Connect to iTunes screen. Yikes...

      Any ideas?!

      Updated to 1.1.3 without any issues; I did go through a couple of glitches, but just waited and let it do its thing and its working perfectly for me. I reinstalled BSD Subsystem and then SSH in order for SSH to work again. Trying to get my EDGE to work, all contacts were intact with the update as all songs, photos, etc. So far so good!

      it says i am not running a jailbroken iPhone?..... Has anyone seemed to find some trend as to why this is happening?

      i jailbroke my AT&T activated 1.1.1 using the Mac Version to 1.1.3 then i noticed i was 1.1.3 in the end with only "Installer" as an extra app.So i went to installer clicked uninstall button then reinstalled my BSD Subsystem successfully. Now everything i install besides "Customize" installs properly and shows up on my springboard.

      My phone was originally 1.0.2. I upgraded to 1.1.2 not unlocked. Followed instruction and it is 1.1.3 and Jailbroken. This is badass. Thank You all. I did not want to wait until the SDK was released.
