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.
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:
- Start with a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone with Installer.app installed.
- 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).
- iBrickr will determine what firmware you are running on your phone and make sure you can run the update.
- iBrickr will then guide you through the process of obtaining and modifying the 1.1.3 firmware (make sure to read everything thoroughly).
- 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.
- 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.
- 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...
