Jacob’s Jailbreaking 1.1.3 Experience

After receiving Doug’s enthusiastic text announcing the Jailbreak for 1.1.3, and his live-blogging, I decided I had to give it a shot too.

First off, I went and got Nate True’s new version of iBrickr, which comes in a zip file. Extracted all the contents of that zip to a easy-to-find folder on my desktop. Opened that folder and ran iBrickr.exe. From there it was all easy to understand, ‘CLICK HERE’ buttons. Even I couldn’t screw it up. (see Doug’s live blog for the easy to follow pictures). Once iBrickr was done doing its thing, it kindly told me the next step was to run Installer.app and install ’1.1.3 soft update’. At first that did not show up in my list on Installer, a simple Refresh sources put it in my ‘Recent Packages’ list. Installed it and my iPhone automatically restarted.

Presto! My iPhone is now running 1.1.3, kinda. While I have the jiggly (movable icons), peel back map and most all of the new 1.1.3 features, this ‘soft update’ does not update the baseband, which controls the features like the location finder on maps, and the Hybrid map view. So those 2 features are not working for me at the moment.



Now for my warning. Once you have completed the 1.1.3 soft update, all 3rd party icons disappear. Installer.app will still be on your home page, but no other 3rd party apps. If you go into Installer, your uninstall list will still have all of your old apps listed. That is because they are still in the /applications folder (which is no longer the location that they are stored). Basically, you have to reinstall all of the apps back to your iPhone. Since all of your old apps are listed as installed, reinstalling them can be a hassle. Here is the trick Doug found:

Doug wrote: 11:16pm – Ok, I think I got it (Thanks modmyifone.com) If you have MobileFinder, uninstall it and reinstall, otherwise install it. Use it and delete LocalPackages.plist in private/var/root/Library/Installer/ and Reinstall BSD subsystem, and OpenSSH. I am in progress of trying this…..

That trick worked for me and cleared my list of apps from Installer.app’s ‘Uninstall’ list. Then I was free to reinstall most all of my apps, with the exception of Summerboard and Customize.

So my recommendation would be to give it another week till some of the kinks are worked out, and the developers have time to update their apps for 1.1.3. All-in-all I’m not too disappointed, just want to have Summerboard back for my themes.

Happy Hacking!

UPDATE: From tipster Jman, I found that you can install Navizon GPS on 1.1.3, run it one time, and then the Maps.app Locate and Hybrid functions will work. Tested and it works!

  1. plese someone tell me why when I did this jailbreak with my 1.1.1 iphone when I finish all the process it restarts and the connect to itunes logo appear Ihad do downgrade it to 1.1.1 again

  2. I would ove to try this update but i am already running firmware 1.1.3 standard and I dont wanna take the change of trying to downgrade to 1.1.1 and then upgrading again. HOPEFULLY!! soon there will be a jailbreak for those of us who are already 1.1.3.

    Thanx for all the info.

  3. Im really doubting that anytime soon they’ll have a jailbreak for 1.1.3 without rolling back to 1.1.1. It really isn’t hard to rollback. I would just do it.

  4. Yeah BrothaMike, it takes about 5 minutes of work. Literally here it is if you have a mac. Close iTunes. Turn your phone off. Hold home and power exactly 10 seconds. Then release power but keep holding the home for 10 more. Then release it. iTunes will open. Alt/Option click Update and choose the 1.1.1 Firmware. When your done its pretty much ready to go. You have to put in about 2 minutes of that *#307# process but that’s really simple. It’s worth it if you ask me cause I was 1.1.3 and in the same boat.
