8 October 2007 @ 14:27iPhone Jailbreak for v1.1.1
Erica Sadun posted over at The Unofficial Apple Weblog that a preliminary jailbreak has been achieved for iPhone v1.1.1.
So what does this jailbreak mean?
- Third Party apps run. Kind of. We probably have to recompile many of them for the new frameworks because many of them crash.
- Springboard no longer recognizes DisplayOrder.plist. And the list of “whitelisted” apps (that is, the official Applications including Safari, Photos, Calendar, etc) seems to be hard-coded into Springboard.app
- The iPhone has been activated via third-party workarounds.
- The 1.1.1 binaries barely work with 1.0.2 — at least not well enough to run the music store without major hacking.
- The Mobile Terminal App works on 1.1.1.
- The entire bsd suite still works — as do standard command-line utilities compiled for ARM.
- 1.1.1 references both com.apple.mobile.radio and com.apple.mobile.nike.
- The jailbreak method is nowhere near ready for prime time. So please be patient.
