I’ve decided I’m not happy with the 1.1.3 jailbreak. Too many features don’t work both on the new Apple features and third party apps. So, I’m going to restore to 1.1.1. I’m going to assume since my baseband wasn’t upgraded I should just be able to but the iPhone in recovery mode and use the shift+restore feature in iTunes. Let’s see what happens:
12:55pm – SSHing in to remove the nate true install file of approx 300MB from the /var/root/media/softupdate folder. The file name is 113_upgrade_image.bin
1:00pm – Putting iPhone into recovery mode by connecting it to the PC via USB. iTunes is closed.
1:02pm – The connect to iTunes image has appeared, opening iTunes.
1:02pm – iTunes is updating it’s Library due to the upgrade to 7.6 last night.
1:07pm – iTunes detected iPhone in restore mode. I held shift key and clicked restore. Chose 1.1.1 restore file from c:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\
1:15pm – iPhone is showing activated and Restore of personal info is in progress…
1:28pm – iPhone restarts, hack for battery percentage instead of icon still works… custom glossy dock returns… All personal info, calendar, text message, etc. remained.
1:31pm – Firmware shows 1.1.1, going to jailbreakme.com
1:34pm – Jailbreakme.com crashes safari, restarting iPhone, trying again.
1:35pm – Jailbreakme.com worked second time, Installer is in the house!
1:37pm – Installer updated itself and just got a call! Works fine! Ringer works too!
1:41pm – I’m going to manually overwrite my sources so I don’t have to re-enter them all (/private/var/root/Library/Installer/PackageSources.plist. I’m gonna have to install BSD Subsystems again and get openSSH working. From there I will reinstall my apps and I’m assuming all ROMs, Themes etc will be there. I will let you know.
2:55pm – All customization is gone and I have to reinstall all my apps but, other then that, everything is functioning correctly and there is no evidence of having ever upgraded to 1.1.3. I’m back to my normal jailbroke 1.1.1!
