    From their site:

    2007/10/11 Known Issue with OS version 1.1.1

    I just upgraded to 1.1.1 and jailbroke my phone using the new method, and I'm sad to say that it looks like iFrotz is one of the apps which doesn't run under 1.1.1.

    I'm looking into it and I'll try to get a fixed version out soon.

    I'm sad. This was the program I was most looking forward to trying out.

    Hope the fix is out soon.

    I think it has to be posted to one of the lists that Installer.app pings.

    Either way, I've got it installed and it's pretty magical. I hope to spend more time with it tonight.

    It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

    Yes.

    I'm actually going to start Zork today for (gasp) the first time.

    Works fine on my 16gb 1.1.4 touch. I even managed to get some original Infocom games installed form my lost treasures cd.
    The only problem is saving which fails every time. I am guessing that the game saves to some folder I need to CHMOD (it is not the same folder the games are in as I tried that one). Does anyone know where I need to look?

    Cheers
    Ray
