    I don't think anyone can, but this worked as an alternative to oktoprep when it was down:

    1) You need SSH installed on iPhone
    2) Download and unzip http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/zips/OktoPrep.zip
    3) Put sbin/mknod file to /sbin/ on your iPhone via ssh (same octal as all other files/folders in the sbin folder!)
    4) When you finally have mknod file on your iPhone, login via ssh to it and type the following command:
    /sbin/mknod ~/Media/disk c 14 1
    NOTE - You must do it on your iPhone, not on your Mac or PC! (with pgm Term-vt100 from installer).
    5) Voila, you don't need Oktoprep anymore, you can safely update to 1.1.2 and launch jailbreak.jar (got to have java installed!)

    Oktoprep needs to run on 1.1.1, so you have to downgrade to 1.1.1 anyway.
    Restore to 1.1.1 and jailbreak it with AppSnapp (www.jailbreakme.com).
    Move straight into the installer and run OktoPrep (make sure you press the OK button on the popup).
    Return to the springboard.
    Don't reboot the iPhone manually!
    Update (not restore) to 1.1.2 and jailbreak it.

    This should work.

    well im asking because i dont have wifi at the house i am just looking for an easyer way to do it and if i can take oktoprep and see what makes it do what it does maybe i can make something that would do the same for 1.1.2 or something that would jailbreak it with a one-click method

    Well, without wifi you won't get very far.
    I was thinking of a solution without wifi, but I assume there isn't any.
    OktoPrep needs to run from 1.1.1. 1.1.1 Needs to be jailbroken with a tiff exploit from Safari. You can't do that without a wifi internet connection, unless you have your own tiff exploit software running on a local server.

    Once jailbroken you need to install OktoPrep through internet. Even if you don't have internet, the alternative solution I proposed requires you login through SSH, which (again) requires wifi...

    Sorry, but I guess there's no other option than buying a wifi router for a few Dollars.
