Jailbreak for iPhone 1.1.3 available

iPhone 1.1.3 jailbreak

iPhone users who have upgraded to firmware version 1.1.3 now have a viable jailbreak option with iJailbreak 0.5.1, an update to iJailbreak 0.5 that was released this morning. This iPhone-only jailbreak allows users to open up an iPhone with v1.1.3 installed in order to implement custom applications and services. The jailbreak requires users to implement bootloader 4.6, and will not function with any other version.

The earlier iJailbreak 0.5 release caused a problem on PowerPC-based Macs, which resulted in segmentation fault errors. The incremental update should resolve these issues; however, the author notes that it has not been tested.

    no workie...

    Doesn't work here... OS: 10.4.10 iTunes version: 7.4.2

    I got errors, and it left my iPhone in recovery mode, and I had to use iNdependence to unbrick it, in order to avoid the whole restoration process... Maybe this is Leopard-only?

    Does not require 4.6!

    The Jailbreak does not require boot-loader 4.6, it is only the unlock which requires 4.6. Jailbreak and activation is supported for boot-loader 3.9. Boot-loader 4.6 certainly does not need to be "implemented" as this can only be done by opening the phone, which is risky and totally unnecessary!

    That was easy! I have done jailbreaks in the past, but this was too easy.

    Jailbreaking is cool. However, can you unlock the 1.1.3 version?
