1.1.3 Jailbreak Release

Posted on February 2, 2008. Filed under: iPhone | Tags: , , |

So this itweak has been out for a while, but here goes. I can only predict that other hacks in the future will be made even faster. As more Apple applications are now open sourced to programmers. And also the iPhone secret application key has said to be leaked, which could mean that programmers will be able to work directly through iTunes in the future. That would be unheard of as far as programming standards. Since Apple has guarded that piece of software like the Pentagon on 9-11. Anyways here goes!

NOTE: Once again I must say that attempting to tamper with your iPhone could most definitely leave your iPhone beat, bruised and battered. But if you are okay with that then please proceed. If you are not okay with that then leave your poor little iPhone friend alone.

Since this is a jailbreak you need to have a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone already. If you don’t have one already then read this post here. How to install 3rd party software to your iPhone

Once you have successfully downgraded your iPhone and then loaded the correct app loaders. Move on to the next step.

Jailbreaking 1.1.3

– Start with 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken iphone with the installer.app installed. You need at least 300MB of memory of Free Space
– Plug in your iPhone to you computer via USB cable.
– Download, extract, and run the iBrickr Special 1.1.3 jailbreak edition
– The iBrickr wizard will then tell you have on your iPhone and make sure that you can run this update.
– iBrickr will then show you thru the modifying of the 1.1.3 firmware. READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY
– THEN iBrickr will upload a firmware image to your iPhone. This is just a file on your phone so it does not actually modify your iPhone at all.
– It should take ABOUT 10 MINUTES. It will tell you to go to the installer and install the 1.1.3 soft upgrade package.

– The upgrade will stall about half way through. This is normal. Do not touch the phone and just let it do its thing. The installer should take another 10-15 minutes.

When your phone is done it should reboot and be active.
