1.1.3 Jailbreak Warning: Nate's in Particular

Official iPhone Dev Team jailbreak for 1.1.3 coming soon! If you used the unofficial version you MUST restore back to 1.1.1 and get back to jailbroken 1.1.2 to update. The unofficial version breaks an important system manager and you will have serious issues if you put the official jailbreak onto your current jailbreak( Soft Upgrade a.k.a Nate). Reputed iPhone developer Jonathan Zdziarski told iPhone Atlas:

“It looks like Nate’s update causes Nikita to break (Nikita is the component on the iPhone/iTouch responsible for installing signed software, such as the iPod App Pack and likely SDK apps in the future),” adding “We believe this is because the soft-update method that was released doesn’t update the kernel cache, so users are likely still booting into the 111 or 112 kernel, which is lacking the necessary DRM components to verify/decrypt packages with Nikita. In the meantime, we’re working on an SDK-functional soft-update. If we succeed, we’ll release it as soon as it’s ready. If not, we’ll release the current soft-upgrade method we’re using (with no SDK support), and release our “secret” method at SDK time, to let people use it.” said Zdziarski.

Zdziarski says that the jailbreak method they created does not create the same problems as Nate's Soft Upgrade. They are waiting to release it until they strongly believe it is finished and Apple has released the official iPhone SDK.
