iPhone 1.1.3 jailbreak Released: Must Be A Jailbroken 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 iPhone

iPhone 1.1.3 jailbreak released. This won’t work on new or not jailbroken phones SORRY. You have to have a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone.This is a very brief guide on how to update to 1.1.3. I am working on a much more thorough guide.As all upgrades are risky, this one is doubly so. You may have to restore your phone using iTunes and start again if it fails. Make sure to back up first! This jailbreak, like the 1.1.2 jailbreak, comes as an upgrade. This means you need to have a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone already, before you can begin. Right now there’s only a Windows iBrickr-based version of the image creator but I’m hard at work on a Mac version, so expect it soon. Update - unlocked phones appear to remain unlocked and work properly after the update, according to scattered reports.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Start with a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone with installed.

  • Plug in your phone via USB to your computer

  • Download, extract, and run iBrickr Special 1.1.3 jailbreak edition (ibrickr.exe in the archive).

  • iBrickr will determine what firmware you are running on your phone and make sure you can run the update.

  • iBrickr will then guide you through the process of obtaining and modifying the 1.1.3 firmware (make sure to read everything thoroughly).

  • iBrickr will upload the new firmware image to your phone. Note that this only puts the file on your phone and does not modify it at all, yet.

  • When iBrickr finishes (should take about 10 minutes), it will tell you to go to Installer and install the “1.1.3 soft upgrade” package. Do that.

  • When the installer finishes (this should take another 10-15 minutes), your phone should reboot with a fresh activated 1.1.3 firmware.

If you feel like giving, please donate to a worthy charity.
