Jailbreak and iPhone 1.1.1

I did it. I now have my iPhone updated to 1.1.1 firmware, and fully jailbroken. The process is not for the faint of heart, but once you understand what you are trying to accomplish it is not all that difficult.

I also used the iPhone Dev Team instructions found here:

I expect easier solutions to appear within a week.

So far every third-party application that I had installed under 1.0.2 is working on my iPhone with 1.1.1 firmware. There are a few exceptions:
