    Default UPDATED 1.1.2 Jailbreak includes Activation!
    Yes I hope I read it right this Jailbreak has been updated to "hacktivate" your phone!

    Here's where I read it...

    Get it here..

    And from the README

    1.1.2 Jailbreak (Updated)
    **** NOTE: This method currently requires you be on 1.1.1 of the firmware. If you are on 1.1.2
    you must downgrade prior to being able to use this jailbreak. ****

    - Activation/YouTube for iPhones
    - Added an automatic fix for SpringBoard crash problem on touches
    - PPC support
    - Some improvements to crossplatform compatibility

    Step 1: Downgrade to 1.1.1 (if required)
    *** NOTE: This guide does not guarantee it will work 100%. Also errors 1015 is expected at
    the end of the process. Continue reading to understand. ***
    1. Download the 1.1.1 ipsw firmware file from Apple. If the downloaded file has the extension
    ".zip", please remove it and modify it to end up with a filename ending in _Restore.ipsw

    2. Reboot your iPhone holding the top (power) and home buttons BUT release the top button 10
    seconds into it (right after the screen goes dark) and continue to hold the home button until
    iTunes detects the phone in recovery mode. The iPhone screen will appear to be off, but start
    iTunes if not started yet .

    3. Restore your iPhone by pressing and holding the ‘Shift’ key on windows or ‘option’ key on Mac,
    then click ‘restore’ to select the 1.1.1 firmware file you downloaded earlier. The restore should
    go through and errors at the end with error 1015. However you will notice that the iphone is in
    DFU mode with the connect to itunes screen from 1.1.1.

    4. In order to kick the phone out of that mode I just had to launch iNdependence version 1.2.5
    and wait a minute or so.or in windows use ibrickr v.91 to boot device. If you are using iTunes 7.5 you will have to get a MobileDevice from a
    previousv version in order to run Independence.

    - If iNdependence is not available or you are on a Windows machine, download a working copy of
    iPhuc and issue the following commands:
    cmd setenv auto-boot true
    cmd saveenv
    cmd fsboot

    Step 2a: Jailbreak 1.1.1 on Unactivated iPhone
    *** NOTE: If your phone has been activated through iTunes, you can proceed to step 2b. ***
    1. enter *#307# press call, now use the back button on the top of your screen to remove *#307# ,
    now enter 0 , press call, press answer, press hold, press decline. And you get to the contact
    list. And thereafter every time you push the homebutton you just slide the "emergency call"
    slide, then enter 0 , press call, press hold, press decline.
    2. Push contacts, end call and you get called again, this time hit decline and you access one of
    menus with favorites, you can edit contacts, do a test ride on keyboard, take photos etc.
    3. Now edit a new contact and type in "prefs://11" as web-address and "" as
    an additional URL.
    4. When you tap "prefs://11" you can now select your favorite WiFi gateway.
    5. Now press the home button and move the slider to the dial-pad.
    6. Now you can go back to the contact list by Dialing 0, push call, then answer, then contacts,
    then hit the "" web address you typed in.
    7. Scroll down to the bottom, click "Install AppSnapp". Safari will exit and you'll return to your
    springboard. Wait for the phone to reboot. You are now jailbroken. and are able to use

    Step 2b: Jailbreaking on iPod Touch or iTunes Activated iPhone
    1. Launch Safari
    2. Visit, Scroll down to the bottom, click "Install AppSnapp". Safari will
    exit and you'll return to your springboard. Slide to unlock, you are now jailbroken. and are
    able to use

    Step 3: Prepare your 1.1.1 device for the Update
    1. Launch
    2. Scroll down to Tweaks (1.1.1)
    3. Select OktoPrep
    4. Click Install
    Step 3b: Prevent SpringBoard crash on previous hacked iPod touches
    If you have installed MobileMail on your iPod touch, there is a chance an update to 1.1.2 will
    render your device inoperable until a restore. This issue can be prevented by switching Auto-Check
    - Go to General->Mail->Auto-Check. Set it to Manual.
    If you forget to do this step and update, proceed with the jailbreak in step 5 (even though
    SpringBoard is unusable) and we will fix it for you.
    Step 4: Update to 1.1.2
    1. Connect your device to your computer
    2. Launch iTunes
    3. Choose your device
    4. Click Update
    - If update still shows 1.1.1 as being the newest version, you may download the 1.1.2 from an
    Apple download server and shift-click (PC) or option-click (Mac) on "Check for update" and
    select the update you downloaded.

    - DO NOT CLICK OR SHIFT-CLICK RESTORE: That will wipe the changes OktoPrep made.
    5. Wait forever for your device to update
    Step 5: Jailbreak your iPod Touch or iPhone
    WARNING: If your iPhone is unactivated, it will be factory "hactivated" for you and YouTube enabled.
    If this is not desired behavior, activate your iPhone with iTunes before proceeding.
    1. Close iTunes
    2. Connect your device to your computer
    3. On Windows, double click on windows.bat, on Mac, double click on jailbreak.jar
    4. Follow the on screen instructions.
