That’s right! The iPhone v1.1.2 firmware is now officially jailbroken. The new firmware’s only been officially available to US iPhone users for what seems like a minute and the developer community has already opened it up to third-party applications. With the return of homemade ringtones to v1.1.2 iPhones paired with iTunes 7.5, we previously mentioned that we’d hold off on updating to the new firmware until it was successfully jailbroken. So, it looks like we’ll be making the jump to iPhone v1.1.2 post-haste.
The iPhone v1.1.2 jailbreak software is compatible with both Windows and Mac and will handle your Installer.app installation needs. Short of truly one-click GUI jailbreak solution for iPhone v1.1.2, this newest jailbreak from Conceited Software should give anyone that has at least a passing familiarity with terminal commands an easy way to bring third-party apps to the new iPhone firmware.
Here’s the rundown on jailbreaking your iPhone v1.1.2:
- Jailbreak your iPhone v1.1.1 with this one-click web-app, if you haven’t already done so (oh, and update to iPhone v1.1.1 if you’re still using v1.0.2 – it doesn’t hurt, we promise)
- Fire up Installer.app and find “BSD Subsystem” under “All Packages”
- Download and Install the BSD Subsystem files
- Fire up Installer.app and find “OpenSSH” under “All Packages”
- Download and Install OpenSSH
- Fire up Installer.app and find “Oktoprep” under “All Packages”
- Download and Install Oktoprep
- Connect to iTunes and update to iPhone v1.1.2
- Open up terminal window and navigate to your “1.1.2-jailbreak” folder (“cd desktop/1.1.2-jailbreak” for example)
- Run the appropriate software (“windows.bat” for Windows machines, or “./osx” for Macs)
- Sit back and in a few minutes you’ll be enjoying your newly updated and jailbroken iPhone with home-brewed ringtone support.
