1.1.3 Jailbroken Again – Via Dev Team’s Method This Time

Well, with all the mess and fuss with iPhone 1.1.3 jailbreak113devcap1 methods, and the recent removal of Nate True’s original method from Installer, I somehow got to where I couldn’t leave well enough alone this afternoon. 

I decided that, despite having no problems left unresolved after using Nate’s method, I was not happy with the idea that this method had probably left the iPhone in a state that was not conducive to post-SDK Apple-delivered apps later this month. 

So, on Super Bowl Sunday, right around kickoff time, I decided to restore, downgrade back again, and jailbreak fresh via the ‘official’ Dev Team method.  Doing this during the Super Bowl might sound a little nuts to some of you – but I figured that with all the waiting round during the numerous restores involved in the process, a big distraction was a big bonus.

I used this guide written by EIC forum member x666x, and found it easy to follow and very effective. 

The whole process went very smoothly and left me just about done (with only minor steps for installing SSH on the iPhone and similar left) as the second half was getting under way.

The final major part of the process was running the Dev Team’s Soft Upgrader package from Installer.  It ran surprisingly quickly – completing in  about 31 minutes.

I am – so far – very pleased with the results of this jailbreak process.  My results that I’ve seen thus far are:

  • iPhone activated via iTunes with no glitches
  • Google Maps Locate Me feature now works with no workaround required – and hybrid maps also work fine
  • Ringtones work
  • Email works fine with no password sticking issues and no need for additional fixes
  • Nearly all 3rd party apps that I have added back so far are working – and now they show as running under the ‘mobile’ user instead of ‘root’

I have no issues so far after running this jailbreak process.  I may well discover some when I’ve had more time to have a look at everything, but so far, very good results …
