This has been tested and verified to work

  • Email works
  • Custom and Default Ringtones work
  • iTunes identifies iPhone as 1.1.3
  • Calls work (I am not an Unlocker but it should be no different)
  • Find Me works if you run Locate Me at least once per restart
  • No fuss or messy patchwork

It is highly recommended that you install BossTool 0.34a to create an Apps symlink and move your applications directory to your media partition. You'll run out of App space otherwise.

Why Use this Version instead?

NerveGas:
“You might want to think twice about applying the current iPhone 1.1.3 jailbreak “soft-update” (Mac or Windows) that was released (but not solely developed) by “Nate True.” We’ve received word that the method may prevent installation of official third-party applications that will be created by the forthcoming iPhone SDK (software development kit) from Apple. The reason: this jailbreak method breaks “Nikita,” a component that is responsible for installing signed software. It appears that the current process is reversible, but almost certainly won’t be able to co-exist with official third-party apps.”
January 27, 2008: Dev Team Releases Official Jailbreak
The official iPhone 1.1.3 Jailbreak is now available for download here. This jailbreak functions on both iPhone and iPod touch, and is performed on the device itself. Please read the full instructions. A few caveats, you must do it from a 1.1.2 Jailbroken iPhone. You'll also be running the old baseband, which fortunately will allow you to remain unlocked, but without upgrading the baseband, Google Location might not work either. A workaround is being sought for that. All other DRM functions, including the SDK installer/uninstaller (Nikita) appear to work flawlessly. Also, if you experience any issues with signal / activation, you should try using an unpatched version of lockdownd.

Downloaded it, am about to to read the instructions and give this a go.

iPhone 1.1.3 "Soft" Jailbreak
Brought to you by planetbeing, NerveGas, ghost_000, dinopio, bgm, MuscleNerd,
core, and the iphone-Elite and iPhone/iPod touch Dev teams.

OVERVIEW

This "soft" update upgrades a 1.1.2 iPhone/iPod touch to 1.1.3. You will require
a v1.1.2 Jailbroke device with the BSD Subsystem v1.5 or greater installed.

This installer does NOT upgrade your baseband. It only creates a log directory
for it, which is needed in 1.1.3. Don't freak out when you see it doing so.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Because this is a soft update, the kernel cache is not upgraded. You will
need to ensure you are on v1.1.2, otherwise this will cause certain DRM
functionality, such as Nikita (Apple's new software installer for the SDK)
to malfunction.

UPGRADE MUST BE PERFORMED FROM 112 TO WORK PROPERLY

IMPORTANT WARNINGS:

1. Set Auto-Lock to "Never" in your settings to prevent the Phone from
locking and shutting down your connection.

2. This installer downloads a significant amount of data from Apple's
website. Be sure you have WiFi turned on so that you don't use your
mobile connection - or you'll be sitting there a while!

3. Be sure to perform this upgrade with the charge cable connected

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Copy this entire distribution to / on your iPhone/iPod touch
So you will have /update-prebinding-path.txt and so on

# scp -r ./* root@iPhone:/

2. Run the install.sh script:

# sh install.sh

3. The device will perform an upgrade and reboot into 1.1.3

If something DOES go wrong, restore back to 1.1.2 / Jailbroken and try again.

If you get something like illegal hardware instruction, just try rebooting
and it should be updated to 1.1.3.

If you don't get service, try a forced-power-down then power back on.

That's it!

is it just me or does Nate true's method seem much easier?

I upgraded, by the way, and i have just fallen in love with my iPhone again.

This seems much easier, and will work cross platform since it just uses SSH to deliver the inits.

Much much easier. About to take the plunge, deleting apps as we speak.

when you say "this" are you referring to Nate's, or the method you mentioned above?

Referring to NervGas' version, the one this thread is talking about.

Yeah, dump all into the root "/" directory just like the instructions say.

I'm watching a spinning wheel right now. I think I'm supposed to let it sit there, its been going for about 5 minutes.

Great Success! Im on 1.1.3 with Installer on my springboard! :D

RtWilliams2: if you dragged and dropped the files over in another program, you don't need to do the first command, thats just to copy. Issue the second command, install .sh.

Yeah, I issued the install command and it ran to 100% but then nothing. My phone is just sitting on the homescreen.

Nevermind, as I was typing this, I looked at the terminal screen and it is doing something else.

Alright, an update:

I've installed some apps just fine, SSH installed perfectly as well.

Google Maps find me doesn't work as expected, however you CAN get it to work by installing Locate Me, running it once, and then press the Find Me button in Google Maps. It located me to my direct address. Kind of scary, that means my IP has been tagged by skyhook I reckon.

Anyway, I'm going to have a go with more app installs and see what happens when I sync with iTunes now.

Also, if you get a spinning wheel for a while, don't be alarmed. I let my run for 45 minutes before just resetting the device by holding down the home button and power button. When I powered back on I was greeted with the prompt that I can now move my homescreen icons :)


Edit --

Outgoing calls work
Email works
Custom and Default Ringtones work

Well, right now its still doing stuff in the terminal window. Making directories and such. Still haven't seen anything happen on my phone.

In winscp, I have the "Host has not answered" box up but its still going.

Yeah, just let that sit there.

It will continue to do its thing. Eventually you will get disconnected. Its at that point you should see something happen on your iPhone.

Hey - x666x - I'm just curious about one thing. When I run SysInfo after Nate's method, it shows me its own process and that of Mobile Safari running under user root. I thought the new security model in 1.1.3 was supposed to relegate most non-system apps / processes to running as the less-privileged 'mobile' user.

Just out of curiosity, would you mind seeing what SysInfo shows for those two processes after this jailbreak method?

On your 1.1.2 jailbroken phone, copy the contents of the jailbreak folder to the root directory. Once all the files are in the root directory, you run the install command in terminal.

Do I need to install VT Terminal for that?

I have ever appeared to know what I'm talking about,

1) I'm sorry
2) I'm not an iPhone Genius, but I play one on TV

If I do need to install Terminal, can you also post what command I need to issue? That will get me close to the info you want.

Nope, just install the app called SysInfo, which should be under the Productivity category. It's all GUI stuff with it. You just launch it and it gives you some general system info, and has a 'Processes' button - hit that and it takes you to a listing of all currently running processes. Tap on the individual process for SysInfo, or Mobile Safari (or any of them) and it takes you to a screen with more detail on that process, including what user account it is running under ...
