0 to Jailbreak in … 1 Minute ?

Last month, when i got my iPhone, it took me less than 24 hours to decide I wanted to Jailbreak him (So I could run other Apps, no need to unlock since I am on O2 anyway)

So I did, and sure enough it was great, but then Apple introduced v. 1.1.3 and there was no Jailbreak for it, I decided to upgrade and go back to having no Apps.

But it did not took long for a new jailbreak to show up, and a few weeks back I try to jailbreak my 1.1.3 phone, and sure enough, it was the same old routine, I had to downgrade to 1.1.1, download almost 300MB worth of firmware from the web, etc etc .. the entire process was similar to 1.1.2 jailbreak as described HERE .. certainly allot of work and took 1 – 2 hours to do.

But I had no luck, for some reason, my Jailbreak 1.1.3 was complaining I had a “unauthorized” SIM (funny, since I actually had a O2 on O2 Iphone contract, card) .. so it was back to 1.1.3 .. non-jailbroken

Until today, when I read about iJailBreak .. the program made some bold claims … 1 minute Jailbreak ?, no downgrade needed ?, surely I was reading it wrong ..

So I downloaded it and fired it up

Firth thing one notices is that it actually calls for the phone to have 1.1.3 (preferably) .. cool, so I clicked Jailbreak, the iphone went to a restart, then I saw a bunch of code being processed on the iPhone, less than a minute later the iphone rebooted and … it was Jailbroken .. WHAT ?

No downgrade to 1.1.1, no fiddling with contacts to access the installer URL, no re-installing 1.1.3 .. no downloading of large firmware files, nothing at all, just worked as a “patch” and it was done.

……. nice 😀

  1. hi there,

    i see you’re one of the few people using a modified purple theme! looks good so far… 🙂

    I found it and think it would be perfect for my site, i will modefy it as well.. And though I am good at colours etc… I have no idea how to go about creating a header banner image, like you have done for yours ‘nullmind’ which looks amazing! .. and don’t want to purchase it until I do…

    Do you have some tips? Or any specific program you use? As it seems to be transparent…Somehow…

    Any help will be so useful! Another expat in london in need 🙂 lol.


  2. Hi Matilda

    I do love the theme structure, it was quite easy to mod as well

    for the header, I simply took their header image and replaced it with the “nullmind” logo/text that you see

    the transparent bit I did, thats just a background of the tag “#box” .. I did a PNG background that went from transparent to blue .. the PNG then makes the transparent big merge into the overall BG that I defined on “body” (all on style.css)



    for some ideas
