These seven steps will "jailbreak" a 1.13-powered iPhone

Members of the iPhone Dev Team (publicity shy, natch) say they have figured out a "jailbreak" for the recently 1.13 iPhone upgrade.

Publicity shy? Yea. We are talking aboutjailbreak team user names such as netkas, NerveGas, asap18, bgm, Bugout, bushing, chris_, dinopio, drudge, Fred_, gray, MuscleNerd, natetrue, pr3d4t0r, roxfan, Turbo, Zf[strike], np101137, pumpkin, and kroo.

(MuscleNerd. Hah!)

I certainly do not endorse performing the steps I am about to cite. However, it does appear that doing this will quite likely release your iPhone's heretofore mortal lock with AT&T Mobility.

That said, those folks bound and determined to jailbreak their 1.13-powered iPhone via Windows would perform the following steps:

  1. Start with a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone with Installer.app installed.
  2. Plug in your phone via USB to your computer. Download, extract, and run iBrickr Special 1.1.3 jailbreak edition (ibrickr.exe in the archive).
  3. iBrickr will determine what firmware you are running on your phone and make sure you can run the update.
  4. iBrickr will then guide you through the process of obtaining and modifying the 1.1.3 firmware (make sure to read everything thoroughly).
  5. iBrickr will upload the new firmware image to your phone. Note that this only puts the file on your phone and does not modify it at all, yet.
  6. When iBrickr finishes (should take about 10 minutes), it will tell you to go to Installer and install the "1.1.3 soft upgrade" package. Do that.
  7. When the installer finishes (this should take another 10-15 minutes), your phone should reboot with a fresh activated 1.1.3 firmware.

Like I said I can't suggest you try this. I only wanted to tell you how those thrillseekers who are trying the latest iPhone unbrick are doing it.

Wonder how long until the antidote comes down from Cupertino...
