    Default Awesome instant Jailbreak for iPhone and iPod Touch
    Wow... this is an incredible new development by hdm/metasploit, rezn, dinopio, drudge, kroo, pumpkin, davidc, dunham, and NerveGas both jailbreaks AND installs Installer.app on your 1.1.1 iPhone or your iPod Touch all in once click!



    Its as easy as opening Safari on your iPhone/iPod Touch, and browse to jailbreakme.com. Thats it! Scroll down, and hit "Install AppSnapp". Safari should disappear, and pop you back to the Home screen. Wait patiently for a minute - don't touch anything til it pops you back to the Slide to Unlock screen.

    Slide to unlock, and Installer.app will be installed on your iPhone/iPod Touch! You should prob install BSD Subsystem, Community Sources, and OpenSSH, and upgrade Installer.app if needed.

    Erica Sadun from TUAW also refreshes the good tip that combining Open SSH and sshfs (part of Mac Fuse) allows you to drag and drop files to/from your iPod Touch/iPhone directly from Finder.

    Thanks to all who worked on this - its a great development!

    UPDATE (thanks, mofolo): It now picks up whether the phone is activated or not..and if it isn't it'll activate it for you!

    If your already activated, it'll know and wont touch anything!

    Ok, this sounds really great but i am just slightly confused. Say I have a brand new iPhone with 1.1.1, what are the steps to get this to work? I suppose i must first activate it somehow so i can get access to the home screen to be able to launch Safari and do the rest... Instructions for PC would be awesome.

    Works!!

    it kicked me out of safari.

    I waited (wifi connection), nothing happened, maybe waited like 30 seconds. Then I opened it again.

    kicked me out, waited like 10 seconds or so, then it locked. I Unlocked and HELLO INSTALLER! Yay!

    I'm running a 1.0.2 iphone with app installed and a bunch of 3rd party apps? How do I get my phone running on 1.1.1 so I can use this site. If I update using itunes with my modded phone I'll brick it right?

    I have a iPhone with 1.0.2 that I restored from 1.1.1 but has the newer modem firmware 04.01.13_G and want to upgrade to the 1.1.1. All I would like is to use the iPhone as my iPod reason is that it has the speaker, email, and camera. If I upgraded to the 1.1.1 again how can I activate without service so that I could install this through safari. Thanks for your help.

    Just got done Syncing, and installer app is still on the phone.
    So it does sync still.
    The only problem is that Customize wont open, and Summerboard themes dont work. And Send Song opens then closes.
    Any solutions anyone?
