New, Third iPhone Jailbreak Method Released, by 13 Year Olds???

newjailbreak1

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more confusing and chaotic in the world of iPhone 1.1.3 firmware jailbreaks, tonight a new, third jailbreak method has been released, as reported at Crunchgear earlier:

It’s Jailbreak day here on CrunchGear, as another app has just been released, and it’s the easiest to use yet, as it’s an over the air updater for previously Jailbroken iPod Touches and iPhones, and the best part is you can do it without a computer at all.

So, there are two notable things about this latest method.  One is that it’s a straight over-the-air, do it all via Installer method – much like the MMI rendering of the Dev Team’s release, so nothing astounding there. 

Oh, and it’s been released by two 13 year olds, or two who claim they are 13 year olds anyway – AriX and Ben!  If true, wow – when I was 13 … well, walking and chewing gum was probably the height of my achievement or ambition.

This new iJalibreakMobile process is said to work with iPhones that are at 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 already jailbroken, as well as iPod Touches.  Crunchgear reckons the whole process took around 45 minutes, though their comments section seems to show that some users are experiencing problems with this method as well.  My experience with Nate True’s method and going from 1.1.1 jailbroken was very bad, as it was for many others – so I’m not sure what this method may have added (if anything) to ensure that it is less problematic.  For my money right now, trying to go from 1.1.1 to 1.1.3 is just not a good idea.
