    *EDIT* Updated again, Instructions are correct even though 1.1.3 is out.


    I know that this is repetitive but many posts here are giving the wrong advice.

    The jailbreak program has been updated and the guide for both windows and mac users is to follow:

    These directions are for the updated Conceited Software Jailbreak Package. (iNdependence is no longer needed)

    First, download the Conceited Software Jailbreak program here: http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/site/112jb.html

    Then download the 1.1.2 file http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=1385&act=down

    And finally download the 1.1.1 restore file here: http://www.modmyifone.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=1355
    - Activation/YouTube for iPhones
    - Added an automatic fix for SpringBoard crash problem on touches
    - PPC support
    - Some improvements to crossplatform compatibility

    Step 1: Downgrade to 1.1.1 (if required)
    *** NOTE: This guide does not guarantee it will work 100%. Also errors 1015 is expected at
    the end of the process. Continue reading to understand. ***

    1. Download the 1.1.1 ipsw firmware file from the link above. If the downloaded file has the extension
    ".zip", please remove it and modify it to end up with a filename ending in _Restore.ipsw

    2. Reboot your iPhone holding the top (power) and home buttons BUT release the top button 10
    seconds into it (right after the screen goes dark) and continue to hold the home button until
    iTunes detects the phone in recovery mode. The iPhone screen will appear to be off, but start
    iTunes if not started yet .

    3. Restore your iPhone by pressing and holding the ‘Shift’ key on windows or ‘option’ key on Mac,
    then click ‘restore’ to select the 1.1.1 firmware file you downloaded earlier. The restore should
    go through and errors at the end with error 1015. However you will notice that the iphone is in
    DFU mode with the connect to itunes screen from 1.1.1.

    4. In order to kick the phone out of that mode, start TouchFree by double-clicking "windows.bat"
    on Windows or "jailbreak.jar" in OS X, then click the "Boot from Recovery" button.


    Step 2a: Jailbreak 1.1.1 on Unactivated iPhone
    *** NOTE: If your phone has been activated through iTunes, you can proceed to step 2b. ***

    1. enter *#307# press call, now use the back button on the top of your screen to remove *#307# ,
    now enter 0 , press call, press answer, press hold, press decline. And you get to the contact
    list. And thereafter every time you push the homebutton you just slide the "emergency call"
    slide, then enter 0 , press call, press hold, press decline.

    2. Push contacts, end call and you get called again, this time hit decline and you access one of
    menus with favorites, you can edit contacts, do a test ride on keyboard, take photos etc.

    3. Now edit a new contact and type in "prefs://11" as web-address and "http://jailbreakme.com" as
    an additional URL.

    4. When you tap "prefs://11" you can now select your favorite WiFi gateway.

    5. Now press the home button and move the slider to the dial-pad.

    6. Now you can go back to the contact list by Dialing 0, push call, then answer, then contacts,
    then hit the "http://jailbreakme.com" web address you typed in.

    7. Scroll down to the bottom, click "Install AppSnapp". Safari will exit and you'll return to your
    springboard. Wait for the phone to reboot. You are now jailbroken. and are able to use


    Step 2b: Jailbreaking on iPod Touch or iTunes Activated iPhone

    1. Launch Safari

    2. Visit http://jailbreakme.com, Scroll down to the bottom, click "Install AppSnapp". Safari will
    exit and you'll return to your springboard. Slide to unlock, you are now jailbroken. and are
    able to use Installer.app.


    Step 3: Prepare your 1.1.1 device for the Update

    1. Launch Installer.app

    2. Scroll down to Tweaks (1.1.1)

    3. Select OktoPrep

    4. Click Install


    Step 3b: Prevent SpringBoard crash on previous hacked iPod touches

    If you have installed MobileMail on your iPod touch, there is a chance an update to 1.1.2 will
    render your device inoperable until a restore. This issue can be prevented by switching Auto-Check

    - Go to General->Mail->Auto-Check. Set it to Manual.

    If you forget to do this step and update, proceed with the jailbreak in step 5 (even though
    SpringBoard is unusable) and we will fix it for you.


    Step 4: Update to 1.1.2

    1. Connect your device to your computer

    2. Launch iTunes

    3. Choose your device

    4. Hold "Option" on a Mac, or "Shift" on a PC and click, "Update." Navigate to the 1.1.2 file that we downloaded and click OK.

    - DO NOT CLICK OR SHIFT-CLICK RESTORE: That will wipe the changes OktoPrep made.

    5. Wait forever for your device to update


    Step 5: Jailbreak your iPod Touch or iPhone

    WARNING: If your iPhone is unactivated, it will be factory "hactivated" for you and YouTube enabled.
    If this is not desired behavior, activate your iPhone with iTunes before proceeding.

    1. Close iTunes

    2. Connect your device to your computer

    3. On Windows, double click on windows.bat, on Mac, double click on jailbreak.jar

    4. Follow the on screen instructions.

    Jailbreak effect on Touch updates

    Hi, I'm new to the forum, I have found the threads on jailbreaking the Ipod Touch interesting. I have a 16gb Touch and ducussed the Jailbreak with a relative who warned me that if I jailbreak it there is a possibility that software/firmware updates will result in my touch being locked and rendered unuseable. Does anybody know if this is the case, if it is the case would the Touch be unlockable or deceased.:eek:
  3. ThomasShaped macrumors regular

    yes, that is a posibility. My advice would be to either not update until there is a re-jailbreak method or, if you want do update, do a restore first and then update.

    As of right now, the only way that your iPhone would have been "bricked," was if you unlocked your iphone before the newest firmware

    jailbreaking you should be completely fine! :)

    On my iPhone
    I get to step 1.4 and lauch jailbreak.jar from Leopard and it select "Boot from Recovery". The window comes up with the "Rebooting...Sending commands...".

    How long does this step take? Iam on 10 minutes?
  10. brando88 thread starter macrumors 6502

    Nov 13, 2007
    It shouldn't be that long... Make sure that iTunes is closed. Hit Cancel, load the jailbreak program again and hit "Boot From Recovery" again.

    That happened to me too, this is what I did.

    I think it keeps saying "Sending Commands" when you click boot from recovery. once the iPhone has rebooted though you can just cancel out of it. The only thing that needs to run fully is after you update to 1.1.2 and click jailbreak. When It's finished you'll get a window showing it's done. But like it was stated before make sure iTunes is closed before doing both.

    It depends, yes, make sure that iTunes is closed... And yes again, all we need it to do is kick the phone out of recovery mode. (Sometimes it will finish sending commands. I've done it a few times, and it works whether it finishes sending them or not, as long as the iPhone itself reboots.)

    When i went down from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 the phone says it needs activating even though I did previously. Does that mean I have to go to step 2 or still go to step 2b? I don't want mess this up. Thanks

    Forget the message above. I'm retarded. I figured it out. Thanks it works perfectly.

    If we wish to restore our phones after being jailbroken, is it possible through itunes restore?
  16. brando88 thread starter macrumors 6502

    Nov 13, 2007
    Sure is, just hit the restore button in the "Summary" tab.

    The only other area I was concered with is after I jailbroke it the firsttime the phone was emergency only. :eek: Luckily I grabed a beer, and by the time I came back it was ready to go forward. Patience! LOL:eek:

    Easiest way is SSH. In installer.app download OpenSSH, unless you already have it installed.

    Then download an SFTP program (cyberduck is free for mac users) and log into the phone with its IP.

    There are many threads here explaining the details.

    Thanks Brandon...you have been very patient with us here and I certainly appreciate the time you have taken to both write these instructions and troubleshoot with those of us that are a bit...errrr.....slow to learn...;)

    I have gotten to the "boot from recovery" (part 4) three times but the little gear just keeps spinning and nothing happens...tried it for at least 15 minutes (her phone is 1.1.2 OTB and is ATT Activated)...can't seem to get past this part (it all goes smoothly up to that point as the iPhone is successfully downgraded to 1.1.1.)...Do I need to download that modev program I have read about on the other 1.1.2 hack threads? We are working on a 12" PB with 10.4.11

    Thank You

    Thank you so much I have had my phone since Nov and have read up on many
    ways to Jailbreak As I am a more mature lady with limited skills on my mac
    I thought this would be way way out of my reach.I read your instructions about 50 times and decided to try I just have tell you I messed up the first time
    I got over excited as I reached the final hurdle and clicked restore instead of
    update. I NOW have a iPhone fully working (Searched forum on how to get Edge and Voicemail up and running) I am learning so much from you all My
    iPhone now contains so many new Apps.
