Thread: Jailbreaking 1.1.2 OTB

    Default Jailbreaking 1.1.2 OTB
    Hey everyone, new here!

    I recently purchased an iPhone from ebay and it comes with NextSim, therefore it is "hardware unlocked", allowing me to use it with my Virgin simcard for calls/sms in Australia....right??

    Now my phones running 1.1.2 OTB and I wish to install third party apps, customs themes/ringtones and all that jazz. The only way to do this is to "jailbreak" my phone following this guide, yes?

    [/COLOR][/B] The Process (1.1.2 Out of Box): frth

    Step 1: If you are on this step you have an Out of Box iPhone with firmware 1.1.2. Enter recovery mode on your iPhone by holding the power and home buttons until the "connect to iTunes" picture appears. Once iTunes recognizes your iPhone, shift-click on "Restore" and navigate to your 1.1.1 Firmware (download here). Allow iTunes to downgrade your 1.1.2 firmware to 1.1.1. When finished iTunes should give you error #1015.

    IF YOU HAVE VISTA! and you experience troubles with iBrickr... On Windows Vista iBrickr will only work after a restart and it will only work once. Restart your computer and open iBrickr and you should be good to go. However, if you close out of iBrickr, you will need to restart again.

    Step 2: If you are on this step you have just downgraded your Out of Box iPhone to firmware 1.1.1 and gotten error #1015. Open iBrickr (download here). One of the options it will give you will say something similar to "reboot phone" (I haven't done this myself but I will as soon as I can and let people know). Click on "reboot phone" (or the similar command) and iBrickr will attempt to reboot your phone. Activate your iPhone through iTunes after it has booted up (at this point don't worry about having no service, it will come back when we upgrade to 1.1.2 again).

    Note: Many people will experience trouble with rebooting the iPhone with iBrickr for various reasons... If you are one of those people hang tight, I will post an alternate method the second I have time.

    Step 3: If you are on this step you have an activated iPhone running firmware 1.1.1. Visit www.jailbreakme.com URL on your iPhone (you need WiFi to do this as the Edge network won't be working). Click "Install AppSnapp". Your iPhone will navigate to another page and briefly show a blue square in the upper corner before Safari crashes. At this point a status HUD should pop-up and display the status of the jailbreak. If you do not see this status HUD, go back to www.jailbreakme.com and try it again. After a successful jailbreak, your iPhone will soft-restart and you will see Installer.app on your homescreen. At this point I find it's best to do a manual restart (hold the power button until the "slide to power off" slider appears. Slide it off, then hold the power button until the iPhone starts back up). This step is optional though.

    Step 4: If you are on this step, you have a jailbroken (if you have Installer.app, you are jailbroken) iPhone running 1.1.1 firmware. Click on Installer on you iPhone homescreen and allow it to check and refresh your sources. If necessary, update Installer (you will see an Installer update in the update tab in Installer if this is necessary). Under the Install tab, navigate to Tweaks (1.1.1) > OktoPrep and download OktoPrep. After the download, click the home button and allow the iPhone to soft-restart. Back in iTunes, shift-click on "Upgrade" (NOT RESTORE!) and navigate to your 1.1.2 Firmware (download here). If iTunes is already prompting you to upgrade to 1.1.2 it is not necessary to shift-click...simply click "Upgrade" and allow your iPhone to be upgraded (NOTE: if you do this, iTunes will automatically download the firmware taking around 5 mins at broadband speeds).

    Step 5: If you are on this step, you have an iPhone at the activation screen running firmware 1.1.2 and had installed OktoPrep on 1.1.1 before upgrading. Close out of iTunes. Unzip and open the folder containing the 1.1.2 Jailbreak (download here). Double-click on windows.bat and hit enter when Command Prompt pops up. A Java window will pop up (I would suggest to check "Install SSH" but that's up to you). Click Jailbreak! A progress bar will pop up and Command Prompt will start displaying code. Let the program run (it should take under 10 minutes). After it's finished it will say "Done! Reboot your device (it will automatically reboot once after you do so)". And wala! JAILBROKEN

    Optional Step 6: If you are on an O2 contract (untested with PAYG) then use this for EDGE settings (Settings > General > Network > EDGE):

    Once "jailbroken" how exactly do install third party apps?

    I've searched quite a bit on the forum and I'm a very fast learner. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You are correct. Once jailbroken you have an app called installer. you can use that (for the great majority of apps) or you can SSH into it (various ssh clients available on the installer list)

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    "Apps are downloaded and installed using Installer.app automatically"

    Now I understand

    Help! Not sure if this is the correct area to post the request - If not ,please delete, and advise.

    I would like your help in unlocking a 1.1.2 OTB iPhone

    I've followed instructions on doing the following:
    1. Downgrade to 1.1.1 with itunes 7.5
    2. Ibricker to reboot
    3. Jailbreakme.com to install Installer
    4. Octoprep
    5. Upgrade to 1.1.2 with itunes 7.5
    6. Jailbreak 1.1.2 - This is where I get an error message ... "Cannot connect to your device, Please plug in your iPhone, etc. or Reboot the computer"

    I've tried this with Vista and XP system with latest Java Updates, with the same results.

    I would appreciate any pointers. Thanks!
