iJailBreakMobile 1.0 Released!

ijailbreakThis is simply amazing…

13 year old’s Arix and Ben have programmed a mobile 1.1.3 jailbreak method with their own knowledge.

Here is what they’ve posted on their website on January the 28th (yesterday):

AriX and I are VERY pleased to announce the immediate availability of iJailBreakMobile 1.0, a new branch of the wildly-successful iJailBreak utility.

iJailBreakMobile allows iPod Touches and iPhones to be automatically upgraded to, and jailbreak on 1.1.3 through

The great thing about iJailBreakMobile is that it does not require the use of a computer, so regardless of what operating system of architecture your computer may be running on, iJailBreakMobile will work just fine. As such, this fixes the File Not Found error and PowerPC compatibility issues.

You must start on a jailbroken installation of 1.1.1 or 1.1.2. To downgrade from 1.1.3 to 1.1.1, please visit To downgrade from 1.1.2 to 1.1.1, please visit iPod Touch owners need only follow page 1 and then visit to jailbreak. iPhone owners should do the first and second pages (which includes jailbreaking). At this point, your device is ready to use iJailBreak.

To jailbreak, go into, tap sources at the bottom right, then Edit at the top right, then Add at the top left, and add Then, under the iJailBreakMobile category, choose the right upgrade package for you – if you’re on a jailbroken 1.1.1, choose 1.1.1; if you’re on a jailbroken 1.1.2, choose 1.1.2. The installation should take about 45 minutes, depending on your Internet connection. Once done, the device will try to reboot automatically. If you see that it’s stuck with just the “spinning cog” on the screen, it’s safe to manually reboot the device, at which point you’ll enter into 1.1.3.

NOTE: This will not remove, break, or mess with iPhone activation or unlocks. Everything should work as before.

Also in the iJailBreakMobile category is “Remove 1.1.3 Jailbreak Data” (only for use with devices who upgraded from 1.1.1)), “iPod Touch Software Upgrade” (free and legal way to install the iPhone apps on the iPod Touch), and the “Fix Mail Passwords” package, which will patch for those with it installed and fix the issue with it remembering passwords (this issue also exists within the Apple-distributed version).

For those who are wondering, the 1.1.1 jailbreak is based on the Nate True method while the 1.1.2 jailbreak is based on the iPhone Dev Team method. As such, iJailBreakMobile is released under the GNU General Public License version 2.


UPDATE: There are apparently some problems with installing iPhone apps if you are upgrading from 1.1.2, where the Terminal asks you for a password. A fix will be out tomorrow! By the way, if you’re getting syntax errors related to a smiley face, refresh your sources, then uninstall iJailBreak, reinstall, and start over 😦 Sorry for the inconvenience!

I just can’t over the fact that they are 13 years old and programming like this. Simply amazing!
