iPhone Atlas reports (http://www.iphoneatlas.com/2007/10/10/official-iphone-111-jailbreak-released-with-easy-to-follow-instructions-does-not-require-tiff-exploit/) on another Jailbreak method that has been published today -- this time from the iPhone Dev Team. Unlike the previously described method (http://www.macrumors.com/2007/10/10/1-1-1-jailbreak-complete-security-ramifications/), this Jailbreak does not involve the use of the TIFF exploit, which is likely to be patched in a future update.

The process is described as "somewhat involved" but well documented. All files are available at:
http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/1.1.1-jailbreak.zip.

And involves the following process:

Downgrading to 1.0.2 (if you are already running 1.1.1)
Preparing the iPhone for a jailbroken update
Performing a software update, leaving you with a jailbroken v1.1.1
Forcing v1.1.1 to mount read-write so you can access it
Installing SSH and BSD world
Activating with a Non-ATT SIM (not necessary if you use AT&T)
Patching SpringBoard to allow third-party applications
Clean-up

At the end of this procedure, you should have a 3rd party app enabled iPhone 1.1.1. More streamlined techniques are likely to come, and users should proceed at their own risk at this early stage.

Now that's more like it. A "non-Tiff exploit" method. It would be interesting to see who comes out with an simple installer method first.

Kudos to everyone involved.

Its interesting that you have to first downgrade to 1.0.2 before proceeding. Wow 1.1.1 must have been a serious update

But, interestingly, you end up back at 1.1.1 when it's all said and done. Apparently we've found a nice way to take out the nastiest parts of 1.1.1 while still leaving the goodies.

I for one am very excited about this, thanks for all your hard work

Hopefully they'll come out with a way to restore the baseband for those of us that unlocked our phones and want to update.

Confirmed, PPC Leopard-559, using tiff exploit, iphonedev's iphuc-jailbreak.ppc to jailbreak, independence ssh installer for ssh and of course cyberduck!

are all these methods of unlocking 1.1.1 for people who have not unlocked previously?

ie, i have a 1.0.2 iPhone which has been unlocked using the modmyiphone method..

bit confused here..

If you sim-unlocked your phone you will still have no phone. any other previous hacks should be fine and be overwritten. Do not install 1.1.1 if you have sim-unlocked ur phone.

i still dont get it :(

If you have used a free program to unlock your phone (like anySIM), this is NOT for you

If you have a. used a payed program (iphone SIM free) OR b. use ATT then you CAN look into it (and proceed at your own risk)

The problem lies in the fact that, the free program (made by the iphone dev team) changed the baseband software (as i understand, that's the firmware which 'talks' to the GSM signals).
The fact that the baseband is changed makes it not possible to ipdate from 1.0.2 to 1.1.1 .. and you should wait.

hope this helps

IPSF already being able to unlock 1.1.1 iphone :)
There will be free unlocking tool soon :) so wait, and dont pay for IPSF when the major credit is from iphone dev team who find the way to jailbreak :)

See, I tried to tell you guys this yesterday, but did you listen no.

The new jailbreak works great, and I'm glad I didn't have to use the tiff exploit. It's wonderful to have my doublepress home button and my beautiful 3rd party apps side by side.

BTW, iSplit works great on 1.1.1, so feel free to install it. New version out in a few days.

There never been such thing as "absolutly no risk". You are predicting the future, unless you are listening to Apple private conversations, I do not see how you can make such a bolt statement.

As I said before, just becuase 3rd party apps have yet to cause a brick, it does not mean that it will not happen.

You can always slip in the bathtub or loose your grip no matter how much you work at it, S%^* happens.

Umm... you can always restore the software. The only thing that can't be restored is the modem baseband, which can't be changed/run in the phone. 3rd party apps will never permanently brick your phone and never will. Only MacOS and XP sim-unlocking apps can brick the iPhone.

If you want to keep making that statment go ahead Eager, you obviously don't know what you're saying. If I can restore the software, and it works fine, I don't consider my phone bricked and nothing in the future could change the way the software restore works.


The new jailbreak works great, and I'm glad I didn't have to use the tiff exploit.

I personlly like the tiff exploit, I did it in 1.1.1. The other hack has to be done with 1.0.2 then upgraded to 1.1.1, I think the tiff exploit is much easier, you skip the first 10 steps and go right to getting R/W access.


at later stages there will be absolutely no risk

There's no permanent risk now, just your time, and maybe having to restore a couple times.

Using the info posted on iphoneatlas, I was able to successfully get my phone modified, updated from 1.02 to 1.11 firmware, and then get back into it.

I got ssh installed manually (along with the updated BSD subsystem) like their instructions said, and then I was able to manually patch springboard and install the Installer.app program. It works!

I'd say the whole process took me about 2 hours of time, total.

Note that my phone is subscribed with AT&T and I've never attempted to carrier-unlock it. Their instructions talk about backing a file up and restoring it later, etc. for some people with unlocked phones, but I can't speak for that part of the process.

A few "gotchas" I ran into though:

1. After you first SSH into your iPhone and rename Media to a backup file, create the symlink called "Media" that points to your iPhone's root directory and then apply the 1.11 firmware upgrade through iTunes - you need to launch iTunes again after rebooting the phone, so it can complete the activation process. (Otherwise, it's stuck in "Emergency only" mode and the next steps they tell you about running iphuc and checking for read/write filesystem capabilities will fail!)

2. I had a number of applications like Summerboard on my phone when I was running firmware 1.02. I can see now the "cleanest" way to do this whole upgrade is to go through and uninstall all of those through AppTap Installer BEFORE attemping this upgrade. Installer.app seemed to preserve its list of my "installed applications" after this upgrade, so things like Summerboard still show up as installed, despite not actually working anymore. My attempt to uninstall them is failing with a script error of some sort.

3. Maybe it's just me, but I'm not having any luck getting any of the IM applications (Apollo, etc.) to actually connect to my ICQ accounts. They appear to work properly but never seem to establish connections.


if you did this, is there any way to get the installer app on there?

I just thought I would share that I just followed the instructions and it worked for me. Installer.app is running fine and I am downloading (compatible) 1.1.1 apps now. I did make a few errors along the way, which led to odd behavior on my iphone. (At one point I had to plug it into the wall outlet to even get it to turn back on.) Really though the cure all each time I made a mistake (3 times total) was to update to 1.1.1, and then downgrade and start over. For me the fourth time was the charm, and as long as you follow the instructions you are should be good, each time I ran into a problem it was a mistake in the directions I made. My iphone was previously a 1.0.2, hacked but not unlocked phone. (I have not modified the baseband of the phone as I am an AT&T customer.) (For what it's worth, I am a recent Mac convert after running Linux desktops for the last 5 years, and a Linux application engineer.)

I Lost All My Contacts

on your mac?

Close Address Book if it is open, then open a finder window and go to /Users/*yournamewithnostars*/Library/Application Support/AddressBook, and then look for a file called something like "AddressBook.data.previous"... rename it to "AddressBook.data", and then open Address Book again. Things should be back to normal.

Hope that helps. It will be a backup, so it might be missing some stuff.

So there were no reports of phones with 3rd party apps being bricked w/ 1.1.1? I know the sim-unlocked phones were bricked, but I thought I heard of phone with 3rd party apps installed being bricked as well.

I am content w/ using ATT, but would appreciate a few 3rd party apps one my iPhone. hopefully there will be no risk.........

Hallo guys,

Allow me to be stupid here, since in the first place i was out of touched about Apple development for a long time, not until my husband gave me the unlocked iPhone (with still AT&T sim inside...very uncommon here in Nigeria and with too much probing i was able to extract the price hehehe it cost him a $1000 dollars that broke my heart a lot since IT IS A BABY SHOWER GIFT) which i never expected...and the the next day without further noticed the damn phone was automatically updated to 04.01.13_G...i didnt even have time to make just one call... double damn to Apple mac osx or double stupidity for me ****cant stress that much since i'm pregnant anyway...


So my question could i still used this paper weigth ? after the update? the screen reads, these are following issues...

1. Activate iPhone connect to iTunes 7.2.4
2. it accepts MTN Nigeria provider before or any provider...but now incorrect Sim insert an unlocked and valid sim to activate iPhone
3. and have the IMEI 00 499901 064000 0
4. i've locked the phone with a pass code...
5. it cant make a call but i tried the MTN emergency number it gaves me a signal but doesnt show the provider...


MY big question is this phone bricked? and if its not or bricked what could i do about it. Since my husband payed 1000$ here i was thinking i could shell out 200$ just to use this phone again.

Just an FYI anything here in Nigeria is expensive even the macbookpro battery cost me 200$...

Damn oil companies....excuse my language...opps..the baby hears it too...
