H3X’s Computerless 1.1.3 Jailbreak Released!

Posted by Eric March on January 26, 2008

Do not pass go.  Do not collect $200.

NOTE: This method is currently down while H3X fixes some installer issues with the package. This note will be removed when he finally has it up and working 100%.

After much anticipation and a 70+ page thread full of “are we there yet?”, ipodtouchfans member H3X has released his no-computer-required, on-board Jailbreak method for Firmware 1.1.3. The new method is still based off of the”old” iBrickr method, but since it is all done on-board through Installer, you don’t need to be around a computer to do it, and it is alleged to be much faster as a result. (Download time notwithstanding.) Instructions are as follows:

Instructions for installing 1.1.3 jailbreak/firmware without a computer

Requires Jailbroken 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 iPod Touch or iPhone, with installer installed

Make sure you set Auto-Lock in settings to “Never” before you begin!

1. Add the source “http://ipodhacking.com/repo.xml” (without the quotes) to your installer application if you have not already.
2. Scroll down to the “Jailbreak” folder, and install “Jailbroken 1.1.3 image”, or another image. This will take a while to download and install.
3. When it is done, scroll down to “System”, then install 1.1.3 soft upgrade this should take 5-10 minutes to complete.
4. Now, your iPod/iPhone should restart. When it boots up, it should be in firmware 1.1.3.
5. Go into installer and it might ask for an upgrade. Hit “OK”.
6. Unlock your iPod/iPhone, and go back into installer. Uninstall everything except “Installer” and “OpenSSH”.
7. Click “Update” at the bottom, the “Update all” in the top right.
8. Now your sources should refresh. Go into “System” and install “1.1.3 soft upgrade cleaner”.
9. If you can find it, install “1.1.3 OpenSSH fix”. If you can not find it, don’t worry

Congratulations, you now have a fully jail broken iPod Touch/iPhone running the 1.1.3 firmware!(Or another one)

This Jailbreak does not include the new apps and features, just the means to jailbreak, so whatever method you’ve found that you’re most comfortable with for outfitting your jailbird with the new toys and wiggly Springboard will still have to be employed. Nevertheless, for those who have been looking for a jailbreak method that you can do wherever there’s WiFi, here’s your solution. Until an official Dev team jailbreak is released, this and the iBrickr method are the only two available, so if you’re really hot for the latest and greatest, load up Installer and get to it!

    SSH into your iPod Touch.
    3. Navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices
    4. Double-click Springboard.app
    5. Rename the file N45AP.plist to blank.plist
    6. Rename M68AP.plist to N45AP.plist
    7. Reboot your iPod Touch!

    Now you can play with the wiggly icons and enjoy your iPod Touch 1.1.3 jailbreaked edition!

    (note the Ipod will look like an iphone but still act as an ipod)

  2. Scorpion, doing it that way will get you “No Service” in place of your carrier text, and supposedly you will get a random pop-up every now and then in regards to the iPhone.
