So we all know that the jailbreak for iPhone 1.1.3 on Windows has already been released, but now here we have the jailbreak for you to use on Macs. This one is actually much more easier than the one for Windows, there is only one file to be downloaded: Once you download it and mount this disk image, move both the file ?Run_This? and the folder ?data? to the root level of your startup drive, then launch ?Run_This.? Otherwise you may risk receiving errors.

But before you do all this, the jailbreak requires that you downgrade your iPhone just like the way you do it with the Windows version. Also, you will need to have your iTunes downgraded…

So far we have learnt that the iPhone 1.1.3 jailbreak will come in different variations, one of which will be hardware-based while two others will be software-based. We have just heard from the latest news that one of the software-based jailbreak will be due to be released – anytime now! While the other software-based jailbreak’s developer says they will be reserving their method possibly until Apple’s software development kit (SDK) launch is confirmed and finalised.

What may be of interest for all to know and to be prepared is that these software-based jailbreaks will not be simple, mainly consisting of scripts but not as tedious as that of the iPhone 1.1.2 jailbreak.

So what might you benefit from this jailbreak?

  • It will enable you the installation of unofficial third-party applications
  • As previously mentioned, applications must run in a restricted user mode under iPhone firmware 1.1.3. This means that several current third-party applications will not work properly
  • Applications that required access to the /var/root directory will no longer be functional

This is the latest update on the iPhone 1.1.3 jailbreak for the time being, but we’ll keep you up to date as soon as we can!

More news are now emerging regarding the 1.1.3 jailbreak, an even easier method has come up but with very limited info published at the moment, what we have heard is that it is more “refined from the previously noted software-based method“. It will work on iPhones which have had the latest 1.1.3 firmware / software installed, but the developers are reluctant to release it before Apple’s official software development kit is due to be released.

Meanwhile, the latest that we know about the 1.1.3 jailbreak is that:

  • It will only allows applications to run in restricted user mode
  • Certain currently available third-party applications will not run properly
    •, the program used to browse and install third-party apps, for instance, requires additional hacking to run properly

Whether the developers of this 1.1.3 firmware jailbreak will be releasing their project is under being spoken about, but stay tuned and we will keep you updated!

Apple may break this method when official third-party applications ship, disallowing the co-existence of official and unofficial apps. The unofficial development team wants to reuse the current jailbreak method with any software update that Apple issues post-SDK.

While you may still be waiting for the latest iPhone 1.1.3 jailbreak to be released, some have decided not to wait and opt out of this and instead downgrade 1.1.3 back to 1.1.1 (yes, two firmware releases down!).

It does involve some downloading, extracting and the instructions for doing so are in the video below, some are still skeptical about whether this actually works for the iPhone or whether it’s just Touch? But HackTouch claims that it will:

Here’s the download link HackTouch mentioned if you’re interested in downgrading:
