  • Dev Team 1.1.1 Jailbreak
    cash edit: Read our Jailbreaking 1.1.1 on OSX Guide HERE
    Windows Guide HERE

    The Dev Team has now announced a 1.1.1 jailbreak method which allows for:
    • Downgrading to 1.0.2 (if necessary)
    • Preparing the iPhone for a jailbroken update
    • Performing a software update, leaving you with a jailbroken v1.1.1
    • Forcing v1.1.1 to mount read-write so you can access it
    • Installing SSH and BSD world
    • Activating with a Non-ATT SIM
    • Patching SpringBoard to allow third-party applications
    • Clean-up
    This does NOT allow you to unlock a 1.1.1 iPhone, and WILL NOT WORK ON AN UNLOCKED IPHONE. Again, if you have unlocked your iPhone, DO NOT DO THIS.

    Download here.

      Now execute the following commands:

      mv /var/root/Media /var/root/Media.old
      ln -s / /var/root/Media

      looks like a Terminal command.
      not sure what you'd use if you were on windows...command prompt is it?

      don't hold me to this, just saying it looks like it.

      This is why I was confused.. but I assume it's just not 'unlocked' as stated..

      Thanks
      good point.
      a little contradicting with the This does NOT allow you to unlock a 1.1.1 iPhone in big red letters underneath lol
      I think it will activate the phone (remove the "please connect to iTunes and activate" screen regardless of what sim you use but it won't unlock the phone for Voice/sms use.

      although, again, I could be off the mark. we need an official all inclusive statement about what this process does and does not do

      I'm stuck at Step 6.

      "Then low into your iPhone and run it:

      $ springpatch"

      What is "low" into iPhone?

      I got it. SSH into the phone
      cd /usr/bin
      ./springpatch

      same question. This seems to be the hardest part of the jailbreak. And i have alot of experience with the 1.0.2 file system and writing files and such.

      the problem is you use them at your own risk...many are unstable with v1.1.1. bc in order to get them to work you have to do a little bit of hacking with the firmware

My reason for closing the other post and pointing here is to alleviate the swarm of people who were going to be saying: "hey, I did this and now I can't sync with iTunes!"

      Developers and folks who are in the know as to how to hack can still benefit from the TIFF exploit, and discuss it here. I am just trying to avoid n00bs breaking things.
      so does this jailbreak method allow for adding apps/changing icons and still be able to sync with itunes?
