    I'm wondering if anyone has successfully jailbroken the 1.1.3 firmware on an iPod touch using the method posted yesterday.

    Is there anything to be done differently with the touch?

    It works fine, but I cannot get my purchased apps to load on it so I went back to factory settings since I don't want to use the hacked iPhone versions since they are a tiny bit buggy. Until I can get my purchased apps on it, I guess I will stay with an un-jailbroken touch.

    I guess I'll stick with 1.1.2+JB for now. It works great anyway. I'm just excited for the little bug patches and whatnot.

    So for it to work on the touch do you need the $20 software update or can it work on a standard, pre-jailbroken iPod?

    Can you please direct us to the instructions/package you used? Thanks!

    Are you using the iPhone software?

    Also, can you tell us of any differences? Google Maps app working fine?

    iPhone JB on Mac

    Hello all!

    Good to see that jailbreaking is going fast-forward now!

    I have a 1.1.2 Jailbroken 16 Gb Touch and I've been trying to get it 1.1.3 Jailbroken on my Mac. When I run Run_This on the terminal, it checks what firmware I'm using (either iPhone 1.1.1 or iPhone 1.1.2). When it's done, it says:

    "Checking iPhone version...
    You have iPhone version .
    Sorry! You must have an iPhone 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 with Installer.app installed. Press Enter to exit."

    Then nothing happens. Has anyone ecountered this? And how did you get around it?

    Thanks!

    J

    well, I used the software for the mac wit a 1.1.1 touch that was jailbroken about 3 times and had no issues. First plug in the touch and make sure you see it in iTunes. Then hold down the power and home keys untill it dissapears from itunes. When it is gone from iTunes release the power button but contiue to hold the home butolton. Itunes should say it is in recovery mode after a few seconds. Then option + click the restore button and you can select a ok ation on your mac that has a 1.1.1 update package. Then after its is 1.1.1 go to jailbreakme.com and jb it. Then try the terminal script again, it should work =)

    Edit: oh and after you run the thing in terminal make sure you turn your touch off before trying the 1.1.3 soft install thing in installer or you will get an error.

    Worked for me.... i was at 1.1.3 for about 10mins before going back to 1.1.2.

    Installer issues, little 3rd party app compatibility, ugly dock, none of the new features.

    Gonna wait a few weeks before trying again.

    As I posted in another thread, it does work. But 1.1.2 is better as of now - little 3rd party apps *cough* no Mail *cough*.

    Anyone know how to get the jiggly icons to move them around?

    Good to hear 113JB works on touch. One question, any problems for people who have moved some apps to the media partition to save space? Still work ok? I had read that could make some problems. (I used that other app, I -think- it was Bigboss? one - to move apps around.)

    it(ibrickr) uses the iphone firmware(right now)

    the official jailbreak is said to be released on saturday(crosses fingers)

    hopefully they will release both at the same time

    Note - it will work. . .but you will have bugs

    Here

    Works... Just remember when u run ibrickr to tell it to locate 1.1.3 on the computer so it uses the iPod Touch Firmware instead of the iPhone Firmware.

    I am running it with a lot of success...

    Best of Luck,

    Well, I have the 1.1.3 touch download saved in the spot where the app looks for it, but when I use this instead of letting it download the 1.1.3 on its own, the soft upgrade does nothing and takes about 5 seconds to run. I just tried downloading it again, maybe this one will work.
