Thread: Breaking out of jail

  1. #1
    Default Breaking out of jail
    So, newbie here, bear with me (or please tell me where it's more appropriate to post)...

    I'm not sure that iphoneInterface is really breaking out of jail. Here's a transcript:

    ==========================

    [~/phonedmg]% ./jailbreak
    [jailbreak 1.0] by ziel w/ special thanks to GeoHot, iZsh, roxfan, Nightwatch and the rest of the #iphone-dev crew.

    Looking for iPhone...
    Sending Files...

    *** If iTunes is running, please close it.
    *** Hold the POWER and HOME buttons for approximately 25s.
    *** Release when the display says 'Please Connect to iTunes'.

    Sending More Files...
    Booting iPhone...

    Waiting for iPhone to finish booting...
    Moving files into place...
    Rebooting iPhone...

    Enjoy your newfound freedom. Thank the devs at #iphone next time you see them for making this all possible.
    p.s. Like most other useful tools, this one may be dangerous if used carelessly. Always remember -- You brick it, you bought it.

    p.p.s. I have no idea how 'My Humps' could possibly have gotten set as your ringtone.

    [~/phonedmg]% ./iPhoneInterface
    iPhoneInterface v0.3.3 built on Jul 11 2007

    Waiting for phone... established.
    iPhone state: Activated
    type "help" for help
    iPhone:/# ls
    .
    ..
    DCIM
    Photos
    com.apple.itunes.lock_sync
    iTunes_Control

    ==========================

    Now, that doesn't look very much like a jail-free environment... Should I be seeing more files, a /bin and /etc for example ?

    Cheers

    Yah, when that happens, try running jailbreak again, and see if it changes. Its a little finicky...

    weird coincidence- I was using manzana today and instead of the normal file directory I got:
    iTunes_Control
    Photos
    DCIM
    com.apple.itunes.lock_sync

    just like cowboy up there. I tried it mutiple times and still not working. I don't wanna restore my iphone cause its still syncing properly with itunes. is this happening to anyone else? does anyone have any ideas?

    That means you need to jailbreak.

    Hmm - it's just not working for me [sigh]. I must have tried this about 30 times now, I've restored the phone to factory settings for about half of those. I only ever get the jailed environment :-(

    Do you have the restore file unzipped in the same folder as the jailbreak and iphoneinterface program? (phonedmg)

    Yep, at least I think so. Here's a listing of the directory:

    694-5259-38.dmg
    694-5262-39.dmg
    Firmware
    Makefile.osx
    Makefile.win
    MobileDevice.h
    README
    Readme.txt
    Restore.plist
    Services.plist
    iPhoneInterface
    iphoneinterface.dev
    jailbreak
    kernelcache.restore.release.s5l8900xrb
    main.cpp
    tree.cpp

    Thanks for the help :-)

    So, it seems my problems have been solved by using jailbreak 1.1. I updated the phone to the latest patch, found the 1.1 version of jailbreak (I had been using 1.0), and I can now see a proper / ...

    iPhone:/# ls
    .
    ..
    Applications
    Library
    System
    bin
    cores
    dev
    dropbear
    dropbear_dss_host_key
    dropbear_rsa_host_key
    etc
    mach
    private
    sbin
    tmp
    usr
    var


    ... interestingly enough, in iPhoneInterface, "mkdir /xxx/yyy" works, but "putfile xxxx" doesn't. Perhaps there's still a few things to get sorted...

    This is on OSX. I've attached the 1.1 version of jailbreak that worked for me :-)

    It's not working for me. It's showing as jailbreak 1.0 not 1.1.

    Where did you get the jailbreak 1.1?

    Ah - sorry. I misread the ] as a 1. It is still version 1.0...

    So, it seems jailbreak itself may have been working all along, and it was iphoneinterface that was not... If I run the previous version of iphoneinterface, I don't appear to be out of jail, but if I run the one in the attached archive, I am out of jail :-)

    So download and try this one, if you're having problems... Only the OSX binaries are in the ZIP file - the windows ones make it too big to attach...

    Why is it that when I run the iphoneinterface from that attachment, I get "cannot execute binary" errors? I'm on a PPC mac.
