iPhone 1.1.4 unlock guide, package manager

iPhone 1.1.4 unlock guide

A Mac-only guide describing how to jailbreak Apple's iPhone 1.1.4 and SIM unlock the device has surfaced alongside a graphical user interface port of the Debian APT package management system for iPhone. The new guide, posted on IntoMobile, takes users step by step through the process of jailbreaking -- or gaining filesystem read/write access -- the iPhone and unlocking it for use with wireless carriers other than Apple's exclusive partners.

A well-known developer has released Cydia, a graphical front-end port of the Debian APT package manager. The software allows iPhone users who have unlocked their handsets to install and utilize Debian APT to load or unload various applications, according to modmyifone. Cydia's developer says the application is not a replacement for 'Installer,' and does not conflict with that installation utility.

"I run both on my phone and have a large amount of software installed via Installer," Cydia developer Jay Freeman said. "There are currently no known compatibility issues between applications that expect BSD Subsystem to be installed and devices running Telesphoreo, and no reason to suspect anything major on that front."

iPhone owners interested in Cydia need only add http://apptapp.saurik.com to the device's sources and install 'Cydia Packager' in the 'System' category.
