OK, so we did the 1.1.3 jailbreak using a previously jailbroke 1.1.1. Below are some of the things we learned. We do plan on adding screenshots to this eventually! If you would like to see the live blog from when we upgraded click HERE.
Things that do not work so well:
~ Google maps Hybrid feature does not work…either does the Location feature (it just spins)
UPDATE: Locate and Hybrid View in Maps.app can be fixed and does work! See comments 10, 13, and 14 below! ~Jacob
~ Edge symbol does not show up though it seems Edge is working
~ Previously installed 3rd party apps do not show up on SpringBoard though they are in the Uninstall list in the Installer.app – you have to go in and uninstall and reinstall them all.
~ Cannot OpenSSH into the iPhone even after reinstalling BSD Subsytems. HOWEVER, we finally got it to work after installing MobileFinder and using it to delete LocalPackages.plist in private/var/root/Library/Installer/. We could then install BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH and were able to OpenSSH into the iPhone. Note: Deleting your LocalPackages.plist removes all of your installed apps and you will have to install everything again (which you have to do anyway so that they will show up on the SpringBoard).
~ SummerBoard and Customize do not work and will not install.
~ It does not keep any custom add-ons like dialer, chat bubbles, battery image, slide to unlock text, carrier icon…etc.
~ BossTool is no longer in affect and all my old Applications are in Private/var/Applications and all new apps are in /Applications
~ Ringer does not work but all other sounds do.
Things that work:
~ Wiggling Icons work
~ Rearranging icons and dragging them to the next page work
~ Keeps all information like previous text messages, notes, emails, music, podcasts, photo albums, camera roll, appointments in calendar, alarms etc. It does not keep your WiFi WEP code.
~ You can install most 3rd party apps. Some of the ones we have installed include; Installer (obviously), MobileFinder, BBInfo, Apollo, iSnake, iSolitaire, NES, EvolutionRGB, CameraPro, Flashlight. LocateMe does not work…it installs but does not find location.
New Features of 1.1.3
~ Wiggling Icons
~ Rearranging icons and dragging them to the next page
~ Settings – Contacts option has been removed from main menu…still available under Phone Setting. Under Phone Settings in AT&T Service option dialing codes for options now present ex) directory assistance – 411. Added International option under General Settings…though this was part of 1.1.2.
~ iTunes – New Redeemed button under downloads…for use of iTunes giftcards.
~ Safari – Instead of plus sign to the left of the address bar it is a magnifying glass which opens your search option. Plus sign (bookmarking ability) moved to the center of the bottom menu bar.
~ Text messaging now shows entire text message not just small portion of the message and the options are close or reply instead of view or ignore
