iJailbreak 0.6

1.1.4 jailbrokeniJailbreak 0.6 has been out for a few days and I finally got time to upgrade my 16Gb iPod Touch to 1.1.4. The recommended method is using an un-jailbroken 1.1.4 device, so I upgraded through iTunes before starting. The process ran smoothly and resulted in a jailbroken 1.1.4 with installer.app added. The only problem I have found so far has been Mail.app crashing at launch, but that was easily fixed with a quick search that found the page here. Changing the permissions on var/mobile/Library/Mail from 755 to 777 sorted that problem. Nothing very different after upgrading, but it’s always good to get the bug fixes, right?

1.1.4 jailbreak status

February 29, 2008 Leave a comment

General opinion seems to be that 1.1.4 is mostly bug fixes with support for the soon to be released iPhone SDK. The usual groups are still working on their jailbreaks and advising users to not upgrade to 1.1.4 until the new versions are fully tested and safe. Ziphone and iJailbreak are both at the testing stages, and iNdependence 1.4 beta 5 has full support for the 1.1.4 iPhone firmware. I’m waiting to see what get announced at Apple’s next event on 6th March before upgrading. Just remember, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

What’s new with iPhone?

Things have moved on a bit since I jailbroke my 1.1.1 iPod touch using the iJailbrake V0.4.1 method to upgrade it to 1.1.3. iJailbreak is now up to V0.5.3 and can jailbreak a new 1.1.3 iPhone, with iPod touch support on the way. TUAW has a nice article summing up the last few days progress, but it looks like there are now several methods of jailbreaking your iPhone and unlocking it to work on any cellphone network.
With the recent speculation that there are as many as one million unlocked iPhones in use it’s starting to look like Apple isn’t trying too hard to stop the practice. The hacking effort certainly seems to be gaining momentum. This may change with the next update which is rumoured to be hitting soon with flash support in safari. We should know by the end of February, the original target for the software developer kit’s release.
