Thread: 1.1.2 jailbreak on OSX

  1. #1
    Default 1.1.2 jailbreak on OSX
    I use Mac and I have already tried 3 times to jailbreak my 1.1.2 iPhone but with no success. I followed the guide on this site step by step and everything seems to work out fine. I downgrade to 1.1.1, do the Oktoprep thing and then I update to 1.1.2. When it's time to open the jailbreak.jar file though, nothing happens. I click on the file but it doesn't open at all. I have always updated my Macbook Pro and I think (I'm not home on my Mac right now) I'm running osx 10.5.1 and the latest Java (the one that came up like a week ago)(6?).

    Any idea?

    So you double click on jailbreak.jar and you're saying nothing happens? No error, no dock bounce, nothing? Are you sure you have Java installed?

    open terminal and type
    java -jar /location of the file/jailbrake.jar

    and see if there is an error

    Control + Click the .jar file and Open with the Java application. Chances are the default app isn't sent for the file type.

    I tried both ways.

    First, I clicked + CTRL on the jailbreak.jar file and the little menu showed up on the side. I chose OPEN WITH, then JAR LAUNCHER (DEFAULT), but nothing happens.

    Then, I already tried with Terminal. I typed exactly this:

    java -jar /desktop/jailbreak/jailbreak.jar

    pressed ENTER

    and the answer was:
    Unable to access jarfile /desktop/jailbreak/jailbreak.jar

    I just saw that I'm running osx 10.4.11 and NOT 10.5.1, if that helps...

    Not working either... Maybe I should reinstall Java?
