Posted January 27, 2008 at 8:02am by iClarified
These are instructions on how to Update and Jailbreak to 1.1.3 iPhone Firmware using the Official Dev Team Method.

You can find the Mac version of this tutorial here:

I strongly recommend using the Installer method to perform this soft jailbreak. It is way easier and less error prone. It can be found here:

Hey there Amin I have the same problem, there is a way of using a1.1.3 ipsf from your comp, il try find the link later. It involves altering the code in the sh install file, and transferring the 1.1.3 file to the private/VAR/ directory on your iPhone via ash. However even after doing this it still would not install for me! I have given up and I am just using 1.1.2 untill I can be bothered trying again!

Is there anyway to use the SW 1.1.3 which is saved on PC localy instead of downloading it again by terminal?
Amin
Amin - February 10, 2008 at 11:56pm
when it tries to download the SW i always get a prompt of "operation timed out"

Hi, i got a funny installer icon after upgrading to 113. Everything on the originally 11246otb works, unlocked succesfully with the geohot software method and software update 113 with installer. now ssh is working but there is no icon on screen, and I cannot find Applications in the phone private/var/root directory Any idea, ? The installer icon looks like a piece of paper with lever, pencil on it. ????

1.1.1 OTB, jailbroken 1.1.2... I used the installer to install 1.1.3 without updating to newest installer. The only problem so far is the google locate function! I didnt connect to my pc to do the "soft upgrade" to 1.1.3.

Thank alots to iClarified and all those who had help so much in getting the iphone working, Last night i use my otb1.1.2 downgrade to 1.1.1 then back to 1.1.2 and using turbo sim and its working fine and then i upgrade to 1.1.3 and its working with the turbo sim. guys remember use the at@t card to upgrade to 1.1.3 and REMEMBER Don't use your SIM with turbo sim. i use the ibraker 1.1.3 to do it but its give me a little problems after its done cos' i have to switch off and on for a while to get it open. i have a 1.1.3 jailbroken and and unlock but i am still in the same modem firmware 04.02.13_g. everythings work like 1.1.3.....THANKS ALOTS TO ALL THE PPLS WHO GOT ALL THIS WORKING.....:) When you use the jb ibreaker 1.1.3 to jailbreak and when its done Don't update to (1.1.3 soft upgrade), it will freeze your phone and then you will have to redo all over again. Remember guys when ever you get stuck with anythings you can always go to itune to restore to 1.1.1 jb and upgrade to 1.1.2jb and do it again to upgrade to 1.1.3 using jbibreak1.1.3

Razor1973-> I meant that is not recovery mode. It is only screen. I use AppTap to go to "slide to unlock screen" and everything is ok untill next seft reset device. - I mean when I soft reset my device, some data are deleted so in the next time the phone will start again in mode "with itunes" screen. Then I must again use Apptap.

jailbreak 1.1.1 --> oktoprep --> 1.1.2 --> 1.1.3. Reinstall BSD Subsystem. Everything (EDGE, phone, ringer, mail, safari, SMS) workng fine.. except term-vt100. When I launch term-vt100, it ask for password and I tried alpine or dottie. None successful. But I can use Putty (SSH telnet) to login using root account with alpine password. Anyone have such problem and how you solve this? Thanks.

Susu, Sultan, that's the recovery mode. Use iBrickr to reboot your phone.

After several hours and reinstalling 1.0.2, 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 SEVERAL times, I was able to end up with a jailbroken 1.1.3. Except I hear no ringer when I get a call!!! I have tried changing ringtone, normal, silent and vibrate modes, etc., to no avail. Anybody else experience the same?

I got also stuck at "mkdir /private/var/logs/Baseband: File exists" read below, seems to be allright! Try to hit installer button on homescreen when it's stuck, so it will reboot ... worked for me, gotta check all functions now ... i'm going to tell u later if everything is all right! I had a 1.1.2ootb jailbroken iphone with t-mobile (germany) carrier lock. i did: - iTunes upgrade to usual 1.1.3 worked (so baseband is 04.03.13_G) - Restor to 1.1.1 -> Error 1015 (has to be) - Second Restore to 1.1.1 -> Error 1015 (as expected) - Jailbreak 1.1.1 (*#306#, ...) + Oktoprep - UPDATE to 1.1.2 - Jailbreak 1.1.2 - updated to latest version of installer, BSD Subsystem 2.0, latest Open SSH - the continued installing 1.1.3 just like in iClarified's tutorial. - gut stuck at "mkdir /private/var/logs/Baseband: File exists" - hit installer button on iphone -> about a minute the spinning "work" circle - iphone rebooted and voila seems to be a working 1.1.3 iphone. lets check the functions cool

I am confused, does the update to 1.1.3 using this method allow my phone functions to work or am I limited to ipod touch status. My iphnone is a 1.1.1 unlocked updated to 1.1.2. If i follow the update & jailbreak path to 1.1.3 does the phone function still work? .
