I noticed that there is a new app in Installer that does the soft-upgrade from your phone, without having to ssh anything. Have any of you tried it yet?

Yes I saw that when I jailbroke at 1.1.2 along with the cleanup app, which I did you the cleanup after the 1.1.3 jailbreak.

I don't know if I have read of anyone using the soft-upgrade app, or the how to use it?

It's a rogue release, be careful with this. Could be OK, or maybe not.

It does work. I just upgraded with that software. I haven't tested anything out yet tho.

Yeah I just saw this at Mod MY iFone

Good luck in trying to get on that site, it is always down.
yes that site is turning into a joke. Last month they said all the problems would be gone due to a new server. Looks like that didn't happen.

HORRIBLE, if trying to view forums (unless you like to take a coffee break between pages).

So far it seems everything except the locating feature in maps works fine. I tried installing locateme but it doesn't seem to show up when i install it. Other programs seem to work fine such as iswitcher and NES

I just tried like 6 times to read the MORE page to copy the howto, but it just crashes each time. But they were saying how to use that installer version

Just tried this method on another iPhone and it seems to work fine. I'll report back if I have any issues. For those of you who can't access the "Read More", it states that you must have the following, prior to running this softupgrade:

1. A jailbroken 1.1.2 phone
2. The latest version of BSD (version 2.0).
3. The latest version of Installer (version 3.0b10)
4. Autolock set to Never.

It's recommend that you do this over a wifi connection.

The entire process took about 20 mins. I still have to create symlinks to fix the syncing issue, and of course use LocateMe to get Google Locator to work.

Could you please try google maps locator, and more importantly, try to sync your contacts and calendar with iTunes. They were reports that contacts don't sync. Let us know. thanks

Are you referring to the contact syncing issue? If so, how do you create symlinks?
Yep, I am referring to syncing contacts, mail, bookmarks, etc. See this link on how to fix it (thanks Tinman):

Koolhand,
You're right..i'm having the same issue too with certain apps. Some will install just fine, others will crash.

ok, so that confirms the installer jailbreak also has contact syncing issues.

Uninstall then and re-install them. It should work. Also, please try to create a new contact in your iPhone and sync it with iTunes to see if it works and report to us. thanks
