iPhone /iPod Touch 1.1.3 Jailbreak RELEASED!

Edit (11:45 GMT-05:00):


HUGE News, everyone.

It is finally possible to JAILBREAK Firmware 1.1.3!

Here is the full post found on

Well, the iPhone Dev Team has done it again. A working jailbreak for 1.1.3 is finally here.


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!

Let’s continue

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.

I’ll be posting a video tutorial on Gear Live’s Bleeding Edge real soon, so watch for that!

Don’t forget to donate to the iPhone dev team:

Props to everyone on the Dev Team, including (in no particular order): netkas, NerveGas, asap18, bgm, Bugout, bushing, chris_, dinopio, drudge, Fred_, gray, MuscleNerd, natetrue, pr3d4t0r, roxfan, Turbo, Zf[strike], np101137, pumpkin, and kroo, along with many contributors who wish to remain anonymous.

And props to Fred_ and planetbeing, who were among the first with a 1.1.3 jailbroken iphone, and Zibri, by whom this method was largely developed. Additionally to Shaun Erickson, who packaged the Installer half of the upgrade, and runs most of the application packaging for the iPhone. He’s looking for a job too – hire him!

Additionally, members of the iPhone Elite team also played a part.

Here is what ‘zibri’ had to say about all of this:

Thanks to the work of an entire team of great minds, it’s done! It’s aliiiive !

As a personal note, nobody in the team agreed that Nate True would release it under his name
thanking the “others”.
The release was due for today or tomorrow.
But he preferred release it by himself.
You’re free to judge his behaviour.
By the way, about this JB, i wish to thank BGM personally.
The key to the system disk is: 11070c11d93b9be5069b643204451ed95aad37df7b332d10e48fd3d23c62fca517055816
These are the actual members of the team:
asap18, bgm, Bugout, bushing, chris_, davidc__, dinopio, drudge, Fred_, ghost_000, gray, MuscleNerd, NerveGas, netkas, np101137, planetbeing, pr3d4k4t, pr3d4t0r, pumpkin, roxfan, Turbo, Whiterat, Zf


Edit 2:

And here’s what Jon Zdziarski had to say about all of this. He doesn’t seem impressed, to say the least:

NateTrue has recently leaked a v1.1.3 Jailbreak without the Dev-Team’s permission, getting himself kicked off the team. Against our wishes, he’s included both files belonging to Apple and patches which contain copyrighted information by Apple, making his personal release illegal and unethical. This is directly contrary to the spirit of true hacking, honorable competition, and sharing of knowledge. He’s a disgrace to developers everywhere. I’d like to strongly advise against using his system for upgrading, and make it known that the rest of the dev team does not support software piracy or copyright infringement. The method the Dev Team was/is planning on releasing allows you to perform the jailbreak without violating federal law.


Now get jailbreakin’!
