So after a while of trying a failing to jailbreak 1.1.3 and being sick of getting my iPod how I like it with every new attempt I had given up on updating past 1.1.1. In my opinion there was nothing wrong with 1.1.1 until it was left behind with apps in installer, more and more I was seeing error messages telling me I needed above 1.1.1. So Shaun said he had jailbroken 1.1.4 with ziphone, so I gave it a shot tonight. It works and is really simple, so let me just tell you how to do it (this works for the iPod and the iPhone):
- So first thing you want to do is update to 1.1.4, just a clean update, nothing special. Either let itunes get the firmware for you or if you want you can download it yourself from http://www.tuaw.com/2008/02/26/ipod-iphone-firmware-update-1-1-4-released/ (the links are in the first paragraph)
- So once you have updated you want to go to http://www.ziphone.org/ and install ziphone.
- Then you just click the jailbreak button and it will jailbreak your iPod/iPhone in around 2 minutes, end of.
This process normally works with no issues, but I had some keyboard issues where if I opened the keyboard my iPod would crash. There is a quick fix for this though. All you need to do is do the same thing as above, but when it has finished jailbreaking before you do anything else open contacts, add a contact and for the name just type random stuff for around ten seconds. Save the contact but do not go back to the lsit of contacts, just press the home button once the contact is saved and your problem should be solved. I know this sounds stupid and fake, but the fix for customise sounded unreal but it was true, so just trust me on this.
