Official Dev Team 1.1.3 Jailbreak Released!

It’s here! The Dev Team released their official jailbreak
for iPhones running version 1.1.3 this morning. It’s very similar to
the jailbreak released earlier this week, only without the suckiness of
not working. The only difference (at least on the user’s end) is that
it requires your phone to be at v1.1.2. iPhones on version 1.1.1 will
need to upgrade to v1.1.2, jailbreak, and then install the “BSD
Subsystem” package in order for this method to work. This is because
the jailbreak occurs on the iPhone itself and is therefore platform
independent.This jailbreak, like the one before it, does not upgrade
the phone’s baseband which, in our experience, breaks things like
“locate me” functionality in Maps. If you have a valid AT&T
account, it may be a good idea to upgrade to 1.1.3 and downgrade to a
jailbroken version of 1.1.2 before running this update. For those of
you who use an unlocked iPhone, you’ll want to keep away from v1.1.3 as
it will re-lock your phone.

It certainly requires some patience, but from our end there seem to be very few issues. Our pal Mark has written up a guide over at Hack That Phone which is likely the best bet for most people.

Detailed Process:

download this file, make sure the following are true:

Set Auto-Lock to “Never” in your settings to prevent the Phone from locking and shutting down your connection.

This installer downloads a significant amount of data from Apple’s
website. Be sure you have WiFi turned on so that you don’t use your
mobile connection - or you’ll be sitting there a while!

Be sure to perform this upgrade with the charge cable connected

then follow these instructions:

Copy this entire distribution (all files) to / on your iPhone/iPod
Touch So you will have /update-prebinding-path.txt and so on. Use this
command to copy the files: scp -r ./* root@YOURIPHONEIPADDRESS:/

Run the script on your iPhone sh

The device will perform an upgrade and reboot into 1.1.3

The dev teams says:

“If something DOES go wrong, restore back to 1.1.2 / Jailbroken and
try again. If you get something like illegal hardware instruction, just
try rebooting

and it should be updated to 1.1.3. If you don’t get service, try a forced-power-down then power back on.”
