  • 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.

      I Updated from 1.1.1 using iBrickr i found the following issues.

      EDGE ( Not working )
      iPod Works partiually
      And ringtones does not ring at all.

      After 5 hrs of contiunally trying to get this resolved with no luck i rolled back to 1.1.1 and all is working again.

      Nate did a good job on cracking 1.1.3 ( Cheers for him ).

      I will be waiting for the next release hope fully this resolves the issue with EDGE / iPOD issue as well with ringtones.

      Sorry to make this thread even more bloated, but for the record, anyone on Windows Vista having problems with the initial iBrickr downloading step, be sure to check your firewall. When downloading via iBrickr, it should tell you your progress. It sort of has a UI bug where it tells you to wait even if it isn't downloading...you should see xx% complete. If not, click on the check errors text in the corner.

      I noticed that.... i guess if bigboss is around he might know this better, where does bigboss tool move all the applications in 1.1.3? and which dup files can we remove?

      1.) what process do you use to create your ringtones? You can create them all for free right in iTunes. Might want to do that. takes no more than 45 seconds per song by doing it that way.

      2.) Hold one of the icons down. it'll start shaking. then you can move it around.

      Ok, I wish I'd taken notes, but unfortunately I didn't. Bottom line: I now have a fully jailbroken 1.1.3 with the 04.03.13.G firmware (not 04.03.12.G), with AT&T service, and everything works. Skeletal notes follow. Hopefully someone smarter will distill this down to a newcomer-friendly set of steps.

      Here's what I went through in a nutshell. I began with a jailbroken 1.1.2. I then used the softupgrade procedure to take it to 1.1.3. (Side note: I have Mac OS X, but Nate True's Mac jb113 package wouldn't recognize my phone's version number, returning a blank. So I used Parallels on my Mac to use the Windows XP version. This worked fine.) But then there was a problem: My map geolocator wouldn't work, and that was one of the main reasons I wanted 1.1.3. (This was yesterday before anyone posted the "install and then deinstall Navizon" solution.) Someone HAD recommended installing the modified lockdownd file, however, so I did that, but then in the same SFTP session I also decided to modify Springboard with my custom dock graphic... MISTAKE. When I rebooted, Springboard wouldn't launch.

      At that point, I thought, "Sheesh, even though I have 1.1.3, my firmware is 04.03.12.G instead of the latest 04.03.13.G, and this may cause other problems later." So... I decided -- like an idiot -- to RESTORE a stock 1.1.3 from Apple iTunes 7.6. Next I don't remember what happened. It was 3 a.m., and I was panicked. I do know that I managed to have the latest 04.03.13.G firmware, but the PHONE function wasn't working. So I decided to downgrade and start over. Somehow I missed the posts about "OH NO, MY PHONE IS BRICKED AND WON'T ACTIVATE." (Firmware 04.03.13.G firmware won't allow phone service with anything earlier than v1.1.3.) So... I used iBrickr under Windows XP to put the phone in DFU mode (sorry for the vague human memory leaks, but I was literally awake all night going crazy with this). I found the tutorial AT THIS LINK to be very helpful. I also remember that my iTunes 7.6 wasn't compatible with what I was doing at that point, so I hunted down older versions of iTunes on both platforms (search "iTunes old versions" on Google). And then, once in recovery mode, I used the appropriately older iTunes to downgrade first to 1.1.2 and then to 1.1.1. Keep in mind that I was STILL IN RECOVERY MODE when I downgraded, so iTunes returned an error each time, even though the software was indeed restored to the iPhone. When I put the phone out of recovery mode, I got the dreaded "UNSUPPORTED SIM" message. Uh-oh, no more phone and EDGE functions. (This was a low point for me.)

      Next I used Independence on the Mac to help me downgrade the phone all the way back to 1.0.2. Then Independence helped me put it out of recovery mode and jailbreak it. Still I had no phone functions (the phone accused me of having a non-AT&T SIM, which wasn't true -- I'm a jailbreaker but not an unlocker), but still I had an operative [no-phone] jailbroken 1.0.2. Then I used that program (and iTunes old version [7.4]) to help me prep a jailbreak-compatible upgrade to 1.1.1. In order to get there, though, at one point I had to use the special "emergency" telephone function and creating a fake contact card with URLs that first enabled access to Preferences where I selected the WiFi network and then that enabled access to jailbreakme.com. There is a tutorial for that part on this site here: LINK.

      By the way, at some point, I used Independence on the Mac to install a late version of Installer.app onto the phone. Sorry again for the memory hiccup.

      Ok, so now I had a jailbroken 1.1.1 where everything worked EXCEPT PHONE SERVICE. :-( The phone was accusing me of not having a valid SIM! However I did install OpenSSH using Installer. And with that I SFTP'd the softupgrade folder (all 300 megs) to the iPhone's Media folder. Yes, I had the good sense to make a backup of that early on when I first had my half-assed jailbroken 1.1.3 (before the @#$ hit the fan). So now that came in handy. Had I not done that I would have had to go through the ibrickr-jb113.zip process again. Next, with the softupgrade folder reinstalled, I used Installer.app on the iPhone to use "1.1.3 soft upgrade" to finish out the upgrade to 1.1.3.

      NOW, I had a jailbroken 1.1.3 BUT STILL NO PHONE SERVICE. The phone no longer accused me of using a non-AT&T Sim, but it just wasn't looking for AT&T regardless. Next, though, I did two more things that restored service:

      1) I installed the modified lockdownd file in usr/libexec on the iPhone. The link for that is somewhere earlier in this thread (I think that's where I found it anyway). And...

      2) I downloaded the latest version of iPhuc for Intel Mac (0.6.1). The link for that is here: LINK
      To launch iPhuc on the Mac, you first launch Terminal and then drag the iPhuc file onto the Terminal and press return. You're then presented a menu of things, none of which I understand very well. But I typed "Activate". Then I typed "Deactivate" and something magical happened. AT&T SERVICE WAS RESTORED.

      So, there was light at the end of this very, very, very long TWO-DAY ordeal.

      I was able to have it all. The latest v1.1.3 with the latest v13 firmware, jailbroken, and everything works (including iTunes, YouTube, Maps geolocator, etc., the works). Except for one bizarre thing...

      The ONLY discernible problem I've seen is very strange... The time at the top of Springboard STAYS at 9:42 AM. Luckily, the Clock app works. Also, if the iPhone is dark (sleeping), and I wake it up, the battery-status/Clock screen reports the time just fine. If anyone has a clue about how to repair that 9:42 AM problem (and, no, I've not searched the board yet, so I'll do that after I finish out this too-lengthy post), I'd appreciate any guidance.

      Ok, I realize this isn't a step-by-step, clearly written guide. As I said at the start, I wish that I had taken careful notes. But at least it will give someone out there a flavor of what it took for me to arrive at this happy outcome, including a general roadmap and a review of what apps I used. Perhaps it will assist someone who may be as panicked as I was. There is hope indeed. Hopefully someone wise out there will soon write a simple utility to facilitate all of this to rescue those whose iPhones have become expensive bricks (or, slightly better but still painful, an expensive iPod).

      Randy

      P.S. Late edit: I found the solution to the "9:42 AM" bizarre problem. A Google search netted this link: LINK
      The solution was to navigate to Root/Library/Preferences and delete the "com.apple.springboard.plist" file. Suddenly the clock in the menubar works.

      Sorry again for bloating this thread even more, but here is a solution to a problem I had:

      I am using Windows Vista, and I would previously get to the iBrickr point where it was supposed to copy over the extracted firmware. This was supposed to take a while, but it would happen instantaneously (ergo, an error occurred.) On the error sheet, there was something about an SHA mismatch.
      I did the following:
      * I renamed 1.1.3.ipsw file in my ibrickr directory so that iBrickr wouldn't recognize it and automatically reuse it.
      * I ran iTunes and downloaded (WITHOUT updating) the new firmware.
      * I reran iBrickr and chose a)Find the firmware locally (or whatever it's called)
      * I selected the file on my computer: /AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer/iPhone Software Updates/

      This overcame the "instant transfer" problem I had.
