iPhone: Jailbreaking 1.1.2 – This time it WORKED!

1015 Error

My previous post showed how I failed miserably with the Jailbreak process on 1.1.2. Now I have done some research and have tried it again…and it WORKED!!!

Success

UPDATE on 11.13.07 @ 3:45pm – added some screenshots of the iNdependence MobileFramework stuff at the end of the post.

UPDATE #2 on 11.15.07 @ 10:30am – added instructions on how to put the “libreadline.5.2.dylib” into the proper directory on your Mac 

So first, here are the files that I used for this:

  • iPhone Firmware 1.1.2 downloaded (160 MBs) here called “iPhone1,1_1.1.2_3B48b_Restore.ipsw”
  • 1.1.2 Jailbreak application (download here) – note this is Intel-only right now for Mac
  • OktoPrep (version 1.0) installed on iPhone
  • libreadline.5.2.dylib (download here) installed into /usr/local/lib
  • Restore version of Apple iPhone firmware 1.1.1 is here called “iPhone1,1_1.1.1_3A109a_Restore.ipsw”
  • iNdependence (I used 1.3b2 and installed the appropriate MobileDevice framework located here) located here

I was now starting from an un-jailbroken iPhone running 1.1.2 firmware. I am running on a Mac, with iTunes 7.5 and Leopard (10.5). Also, it is REQUIRED that you have a WiFi connection active to Jailbreak using www.jailbreakme.com since your iPhone will NOT be activated in 1.1.1 and you will NOT be able to connect via Edge. I also decided NOT to sync any Music, Podcasts or Videos in order to speed up the process.

Here are the steps that I used that worked.

  1. Download the restore file version 1.1.1 (listed at top of page)
  2. Sync up all of your info with iTunes and get your Photos off.
  3. Set your device into recovery mode by holding down the Power button and the Home button, release the Power button as soon as the iPhone screen goes black during reboot. iTunes should detect that you are in recovery mode.
  4. Option-click on Mac (or Shift-click on PC) the Restore button and select the 1.1.1 firmware file: iPhone1,1_1.1.1_3A109a_Restore.ipsw
  5. You will get the following error (#1015):
    1015 Error
  6. Click OK to close the 1015 error notice. You will now see another message about the iPhone being in recovery mode.
    Recovery mode
  7. Click OK to close the “Recovery Mode” error. Quit iTunes.
  8. Launch iNdependence 1.3b2 and let it sit for a few minutes.
    iNdependence
    If you have issues launching iNdependence follow the steps at the end of this post. You will see the status of your iPhone change in iNdependence to this status:
    iNdependence status
  9. Launch iTunes (if it hasn’t automatically launched already) and restore your iPhone settings from a backup.
  10. Your iPhone will reboot and resync.
  11. You are now on firmware 1.1.1. Some things to note:
    • The phone number of your iPhone may show in iTunes as “n/a”. This is expected.
    • Your iPhone will NOT be able to make or receive calls. This is expected.
    • iNdependence may say that your iPhone is “activated” but I think it is confused at this point
  12. This is where it is critical that you have a working WiFi connection for the Jailbreak process. Go to http://www.jailbreakme.com/ on your iPhone to Jailbreak and install the installer. You should see prompts on the screen informing you of an update in progress. Note that the FAQ on Jailbreakme says “Please allow AppSnapp up to 1 minute to install. If you are on an unactivated phone, you will not see a progress HUD. Wait for the phone to automatically reboot. If this doesn’t happen, please try to Install AppSnapp again.
  13. Install OktoPrep (within the AppTapp iPhone application installer under the “Tweaks 1.1.1” section):
    OktoPrep
  14. Once you have installed OktoPrep, connect your iPhone to your Mac (or PC but instructions here are for a Mac) and update your iPhone to Firmware 1.1.2 using iTunes. If it doesn’t show as an update, hold the OPTION key (on Mac) and click the “Check for Update” button and select the 1.1.2 firmware file you downloaded.
    1. iTunes goes through a verification process
    2. Then a “prepare for update” process
    3. Then an “updating iPhone software” process
    4. Then a “verifying updated iPhone software” process
    5. Then an “updating iPhone firmware” process
    6. Then the iPhone restarts and reconnects to iTunes
    7. It “Waits for activation” and then activates
  15. Quit iTunes.
  16. Once you have Firmware 1.1.2 installed, you need to re-Jailbreak the phone. This is where I went on a different direction from what is documented. I simply launched the “jailbreak.jar” application by double-clicking on it (thanks to reader James Cotton for this tidbit). (See my previous post for other ways to launch the “osx” application if you are having issues like “unable to access jarfile jailbreak.jar” or other path issues). You will see this screen:
    Jailbreak #1
  17. You should now see a “Jailbreaking” progress bar (note: this takes quite a while…like 10 minutes):
    Jailbreaking
  18. If all goes well, you should see this image:
    Jailbreak done
  19. Reboot your iPhone. It will do it again automatically. You should then see the “Installer” app. You are in business!

I hope that these steps worked for you. I wrote this pretty quickly since I could see that many users were having issues with this process. I was pretty discouraged after my first attempt went bad. But I view these things the way a mountain climber views a mountain. “Why do you do it?” “Because it’s there.”

iNdependece MobileDevice prep steps:

  1. If you have installed iTunes 7.5, you should use the beta version of iNdependence, otherwise you have to downgrade your iTunes. Follow the steps on the README of that version so that you can install the MobileDevice framework 7.4.2 into iNdependence. Steps are below:
  2. Copy iNdepedence to your harddrive
  3. Run the “iNdependence MobDev Tool” application. If you get a prompt that says you have the correct version of iTunes, you are good to go. Otherwise, you will see this error:
    Warning
  4. Copy the MobileDevice framework (link at top of this post) to your iNdependence folder.
  5. Select the location of that framework folder in the MobDev tool
    Proper framework directory
  6. Select the location of iNdependence
    Select iNdependence
  7. It copies all of the appropriate files
    Success!
  8. You are ready to go!

Instructions on how to put “libreadline.5.2.dylib” onto your Mac

Lots of readers seem to be having issues getting the “libreadline” stuff onto their Mac so hopefully this new set of instructions will help to clarify things a bit.

First, you need to be sure that you are an administrator of the Mac that your are on. If you are not, you need to log in as one.Also be sure that you have downloaded and unzipped the “libreadline.5.2.dylib” items to your computer. The steps that follow are ones that have worked for many users (don’t include any “quotes” in any of the commands that you put into Terminal):

  1. Open the Terminal application
  2. Type in “open /usr/local/lib/
    1. If a directory opens within your Mac Finder, all that you need to do is drag the “libreadline.5.2.dylib” into that directory and you are DONE
    2. If you get an error in the Terminal like “No such file or directory” that means that you need to create that directory. Here is how you do it:
      1. Type in “cd /” –> this will move you to the root level of your computer within the Terminal. You can test this by typing “pwd” and you should only see a “/” as the directory.
      2. Type in “mkdir /usr/local/lib/” If you get a “Permission Denied” error, try typing in “sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib/” and enter the administrative password there.
      3. If you do NOT get an error on the “mkdir” command, try opening the folder using the instructions listed in Step #2.1 above. If you DO get an error, continue to the next step.
      4. If you get an error that something does not exist, it is probably because you don’t have the “local” directory created, so, first make sure you are at the root (type in “cd /“) and then type in “mkdir /usr/local/” and see if that is successful. If it isn’t successful, please post a comment with your errors. If it IS successful, then go back to root (if you aren’t already there) by typing “cd /” and then type “mkdir /usr/local/lib/“. If that works, then just go to Step #2.1 above.

That should be it. Hopefully this will work for you. Please let me know and if this does be sure to DIGG this post!

  1. I’m glad it worked for you this time. Is Independence necessary if you’ve already got a jailbroken 1.1.1 phone? Could I just run OctoPrep and the update to 1.1.2?

  3. @ Chris,

    Good question. No, it is not required. I was listing out steps to go from a 1.1.2 phone to a 1.1.1 phone, jailbreak that, prep for upgrade, upgrade to 1.1.2 and then Jailbreak 1.1.2.

    If you already have a Jailbroken 1.1.1 phone, just start from step #13.

  5. so if you already have a 1.1.1 jailbroken phone and you install oktoprep via appsnapp, the only thing you need to is just connect to itunes and update? or is it more complicated than that?

  7. @ Apple Whore,

    Gee, thanks!

    @ ian,

    No, you need to probably start from step #13 above. If you just do an update, you will reset your device to un-jailbroken and you will need to start from step #1 above. Read through the instructions. You need to have downloaded the 1.1.2-jailbreak application as well and have that all prepped.

  9. To michael:

    Ok thanks I’ll give it a try I appreciate the work you did for this. Also, is there any chance at all this will brick my phone or will it simply restore it to 1.1.2, just in case I don’t do something right.

  11. @ ian,

    Well, I cannot guarantee that you will NOT screw up your phone. Doing anything that I have listed here you do at your own risk. I posted how it didn’t work for me before on my previous post. However, the Apple “restore” utility did get all of my settings back. Just be sure before you do anything that you sync everything, including your photos. It can get very scary during the process as you get many different types of errors. If you scare easily, you might not want to do this. There will probably be a better process that comes out soon.

    However, I have spent several hours testing this with my only iPhone and while I failed at first, I was able to successfully restore to 1.1.2 and then was able to do the process again with success.

    Good luck to you. Let me know how it goes and if there are any parts of the instructions that need to be tweaked (as I wrote this fairly quickly).

    Thanks,

    Yep, for some reason they only developed it for Intel. Not sure why aside from the fact that they were rushing this out the door to us end-users.

    However, I did mention that it was “Intel-only” at the top of the post. I will highlight that in red so that others won’t fall into the trap. Maybe we should say “This Jailbreak sponsored by Intel” (grin).

  21. I had hoped that your step-by-step would solve my problems. I am fine until I try to launch iNdependence. It won’t accept the location of the Device.Framework folder, and I can’t get it to accept any of the files enclosed within the folder. SO, I downgraded iTunes to 7.4.2 and tried the older version of iNdependence. No dice, either. I can’t get that to work either. Unless you have a pearl of wisdom, I’m stuck back at 1.1.2 until somebody comes up with a more foolproof jailbreak for 1.1.2.

  23. @ Jeff,

    It is a bit confusing setting up the iNdependence stuff. And you followed my mini-steps at the bottom of the post as well? I too found it confusing. Once you have uncompressed the 7.4.2 MobileFramework you need to launch the iNdependence MobDev application. It then prompts you for the location of the 7.4.2 framework. So, you JUST need to select the folder. Then another “selection” box pops up asking for the location of iNdependence itself. It’s a bit confusing. So, 2 location-selection steps. Then iNdependence will be updated. You can confirm that it is working by launching it. If it doesn’t complain, you are golden.

    Hope that helps. LMK if it works.

  25. Hi!
    I spent 11 hours yesterday trying various things…wondering if we put the libreadline.5.2.dylib file into the user/local/lib on the iPhone or on the MAC? And if so, do I need to downlaod cyberduck or something?
    Thanks!

  27. @ Michael,

    I went back and re-traced and double checked my process, and tried it all again. When I got to the MobDev application, I selected the mobile framework folder, and it kicked me right back to select the location again. I find myself visiting the “One Infinite Loop” of trying to select the mobile framework folder! Maybe the cause of this is something particular to my system.

    I’m done trying for now. I’ll wait for a more Dummy-Friendly jailbreak to be released. This experience has been so frustrating–since I followed the recipe closely.

    Thanks for your feedback and assistance~~keep up the good work. It’s helped some, and I’m sure it will help more people before the sun sets.

  29. @ larry,

    Yep, that is a confusing one. You put that on your mac. Here is what you do…
    1) Go into your mac’s terminal application and type “open /usr/local/lib/
    2) That “should” open a window on your mac that will allow you to drag or copy the libreadline file to that directory
    3) That’s it!

    In terms of Cyberduck, you don’t need that for anything (unless you later want to transfer things to your iPhone via sftp). It works pretty well once you have ssh on your iPhone and if you use the Bonjour service, it is super easy to connect to it (at least it was for me).

  31. @ Jeff,

    Man, I feel your pain. Here is another hint. Look at the top of the select boxes when they open. I can’t remember what the first one said, but the second time the select box came up (after you select the framework folder), it says something like “select iNdependence”. That is where I think you have to actually select the PROGRAM, not the directory. (Again, I’m doing this from memory.)
    I will see if I can recreate the steps and take some screenshots.

  42. @ Michael,

    Thank You Thank You Thank You! Your last tip was the one I needed. The MobDev Tool does give two file choose finder windows. The first one is titled “Mobile Framework,” the second is titled “iNdependence.” Once I selected the framework folder and then the iNdependence location I was able to complete the downgrade to 1.1.1. I’m restoring right now, then I’ll jailbreak and continue the process. Unless you hear from me again, your instructions got me where I needed to be.

    Best,

  44. @ larry,

    Try just the /usr/ directory. Then try the /usr/local/ directory. It could be that you don’t have a “lib” directory. Then you will have to create that directory (probably using a unix command of mkdir).

    @ iphonesdotcom,

    Have you put the libreadline file into the directory? If not, you need to.

  52. When Patching iNdependence, the dialog boxes are deceiving at first. When You select the MobileDevice framework folder, the dialog box will appear to flash. What has actually happened is that the save to dialog box quickly replaces the open dialog box and you think that it failed to open the MobileDevice framework folder. It fooled me a couple of times.

  56. @ Larry,

    You are missing the libreadline.5.2.dylib file.

    The file can be downloaded from:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/61509655/opt.zip

    After unzipping the file, go to the MenuBar in Finder,

    Go ->> Go To Folder ->>

    at the prompt, type /usr/local/lib and then press Return.

    This will open a new finder window at the correct directory.

    Open the opt folder you just unzipped and navigate:

    opt -> local -> lib -> libreadline.5.2.dylib

    drag the libreadline file into the finder window you just opened.

    once you do this you will be able to get past the not connected message you’re receiving.

    @ iphoxesdotcom,

    First sorry about the name spelling previously. If you are getting a “permission denied” you might not be an administrator on that computer. So, either log in as an admin and try it or in the terminal window, type “sudo open /usr/local/lib/” (without quotes). You will need to know the admin password to be able to do that though.

    Try that and let me know if it works.

    @ James,

    Yes it is confusing. That is why I updated the mini-instructions at the end to include screenshots.

    @ Jeff

    AWESOME! Glad to hear you had success! And thanks for filling in with the “tech support” while I got my dinner out of the way. I hadn’t thought of using the “Go To” menu for that…good one!

    @ Larry

    AWESOME x2! Maybe I should set up a PayPal donate button somewhere (grin). Google Ads just aren’t quite cutting it.

    @ John

    Well, when iTunes automatically relaunches at that step, you probably get prompted to restore your files from a previous sync. Just do that. I’m assuming that you downgraded from 1.1.2 to get to 1.1.1. Doing that messes up the modem firmware, thus crippling it and preventing it from connecting to a cell tower or Edge. That is why you need to have a wireless connection in order to do the 1.1.1 jailbreak stuff at jailbreakme.com.

    Does that make sense?

    (but don’t delete the iPhuc you download) and add these to the same folder as iphuc.ppc — now just follow these instructions:

    This assumes you have the /lib file installed, and jailbroke 1.1.1 and oktoprep installed and then upgrades, NOT restored to 1.1.2…

    Awesome! Mission accomplished.

    @ iphoxesdotcom,

    Sorry that you are still struggling. First, you should be looking for that path /usr/local/lib/ on your MAC and not your iPhone. Second, the /usr/ is a directory, not a file. Third, try this:
    1) Open terminal
    2) Type in “mkdir /usr/local/lib/”
    3) If you get an error saying “File Exists”, then you already have the directory created. If you don’t get an error, then it has created the directory.
    4) In Terminal, type “open /usr/local/lib/” and that should open the proper directory.
    5) Drag the libreadline.5.2.dylib file (or copy it) to that directory and you should be good to go.

    Lastly, thanks for the kind words. Be sure to DIGG the post, click on Ads, Donate, or spread the word (end shameless plug).

  90. @ John,

    The problem with dragging it is that I don’t believe it will actually put it into the proper folder (namely the usr folder). So try this in terminal
    1) Type “open /usr/” –> should open the usr directory. what is listed there?
    2) If “local” is listed, just open it through the GUI (not terminal) and see if you can just create a directory called “lib” there
    3) If “local” is NOT listed, try to create it through the GUI there and then create the “lib” directory in that.

    You are on an Intel Mac right? And logged in as an administrator, right?

    You need to be all the way at the highest level possible. So, in Terminal, type “pwd” and that will give you your path to your current directory (where you are working in). Remember that command.
    Then, type “cd” without anything else. That should dump you into your User home (/Users/username/).
    Do a PWD there to be sure that it is only 2 levels.
    Then type “cd ../../” which should take you to the root.
    Type a PWD and you should see your path as just “/”.
    From there do the who mkdir stuff mentioned previously.

    When you do the commands in Terminal, try prefacing them with “sudo” to log you in as the root admin. So, for example, “sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib/” and you will be prompted to enter your admin password. See if that works.

    Yes, I believe that is where you would start up from. Let me know how it goes.

    @ Ali,

    That is fine. I had to force my iPhone to reboot and then it rebooted itself again on its own.

  112. HDT,

    I accidentally upgraded to 1.1.2. Then I got into the activation loop. Now I upgraded again to 1.1.2 to start the process again but I cannot downgrade to 1.1.1. I “option – Restore” but when iTunes finishes extracting the software I got this error:

    “The iPhone could not be restored. An unknown error occured (1).”

    Do you have any idea of what is happening.

    Thanks

  120. Well, I was unjailed on 1.1.1. I ran OKtoPrep and it suggested I was ready for 1.1.2. I upgraded to 1.1.2 and my iPhone is once again jailed, but this time with the tiff expoit patched and I do the get blue question mark when attempting to run AppSnapp again. Does this mean I must do a complete restore to back to 1.1.1?

  127. Hey Can you please help me. I am exhausted trying to do this. I did one of my iphones properly but the second one when I go to jailbreak.jar it gives me an error saying “you can only use this utility by using OktoPrep before updating 1.1.2”

    So I figured that I dont have the file in my directory. I worked on it for 3 hours and I still cant figure it out. This what I did

    Hitesh-Batra:~ hiteshbatra$ cd /
    Hitesh-Batra:/ hiteshbatra$ pwd
    /
    Hitesh-Batra:/ hiteshbatra$ cd
    Hitesh-Batra:~ hiteshbatra$ pwd
    /Users/hiteshbatra
    Hitesh-Batra:~ hiteshbatra$ mkdir /usr/local/lib/
    mkdir: /usr/local: No such file or directory

    Its not making the directory, There is no local folder only lib, I dragged the libreadline file into the lib folder and restarted it its still showing me the error.

    I am a beginner user of terminal. Also I cant make a folder of local in the usr directory through GUI.
    Please Please help me

  132. to Hitesh:
    the key to get rid of “no OktoPrep installed” error is to:
    1. Switch your OS X to English (English on the first place) and to log out and log in.
    2. Select English as language of choice in your iPhone.
    3. NOW run jailbreak.jar

    Have luck this time ;)

  135. Thanks for your reply but English was the first choice on my mac os x and I restarted it a couple of times. I cant do anything with my iphone cos its stuck on the “connect to itunes” sign. Not “Activate on itunes”.
    Is the “no Oktoprep error” and “no Iphone connected” error the same. If it is I guess I’m missing the libread file on the directory step which I cant seem to figure out.

  137. @ Hitesh,

    It looks like you were very close to getting the stuff set in the terminal. Did you look at the instructions that I posted at the end? Read through those and try the terminal stuff again. I think where you went wrong was typing “cd” which put you into your home directory (“/Users/hiteshbatra/”) when you should really be in the rood directory (“/”). You get there by typing “cd /”. Then if you do a “pwd” command, you will see that the path is “/” and not “/Users/xxxxx/”.
    So, try to follow the instructions at the end of the post. It looks to me that you will need to create the “local” directory will need to be created as well.
    In terms of your questions about Activation and No Oktoprep error, I believe (trying to think back) that once you do get the jailbreak in, you will be able to Activate through iTunes.
    Are you double-clicking on the jailbreak.jar? But try to get the libreadline item in to your Mac if you can.
    Also, this later post does have a better installer mentioned, however if you are in mid process, you might have to try to finish what you have started here.
    Sorry if it is hard, it did take me quite a few tries to get it to work (you need to have a few hours to spare).

I can’t pick this folder to use to restore my iphone in iTunes, so I can’t downgrade. I have tried changing the extension on the folder to _Restore.ipsw, _Restore.ipsw.zip… nothing works.

    Please help, I haven’t seen anyone else with this problem and it is very frustrating.

  150. Confirmed. Beware people! this method breaks EDGE on the O2 network. Do not try this method if you want “Could not activate EDGE. You are not subscribed to EDGE” message. Restoring to 1.1.2 proper fixes the problem. Don’t know a workaround at this point.

  152. Ok. i found these instructions at the Iphone-elite wiki, follow them in order to get edge working again!

    If you’re using O2 you’ll now have an activated, jailbroken iPhone with 1.1.2 firmware (again) and a working phone.

    However, VisualVoicemail and EDGE will not work properly – this is easily fixed, simply install BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH using Installer.app and then SSH into the iPhone and type the following two commands;

    rm /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist

    ln -s /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreTelephony.framework/Support/O2_UK.plist /var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apple.carrier.plist

    rm -f /var/root/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist

    Reboot your iPhone, and all going well you’ll now have EDGE and VisualVoicemail working again

    You now have a 1.1.2 O2-UK iPhone with all the third party apps you could want. Enjoy :)

    My iPhone had been jailbroken and has been OktoPrepped.

    Regards,

    Jim

  171. I am in the final step of 1.1.2 jailbreaking. I am running into the “cannot connect to device errors” however I am using a PC so the readline files wont work for me…what can I do?

  178. like it was before, after jailbreaking my iphone, i’ve been experiencing crashes after awhile. sometimes when i use safari it hangs for awhile then takes me back to the main menu screen. after a few tries the iphone restarts. it’s not just safari but also on other applications like when i try to call, sms, etc. things start to work again after it restarts by itself or when i restart it myself then a bit later when i use any of my applications my iphone hangs, crashes, and/or restarts again. is it just the instability of third party softwares? but how come i don’t read any issues regarding this? also the only thirdparty stuff i have is the installer, springboard, customise, and vnotes. please help.

  182. I now have 2 iPhones stuck trying to jailbreak after 1.1.2 ==> 1.1.1 OKtoPrep ==> 1.1.2 where the error message is “Jailbreak Failed” you must run OKtoPrep.

    I’ve also got the language choice set to English on the iPhone.

    (Windows Vista) – so many folks have succeeded – I am going crazy not being able to get this completed – any suggestions welcome!

  184. FINALLY – I solved my problem having spent evey spare hour since the 22nd Dec searching forums for anyone with a similar experience – what I found suprises me – if you install Java AFTER iTunes7.5 on Vista – jailbreak fails with the message that you must first run OKtoPrep – even if you have… so I uninstalled both, reinstalled Java then itunes and bingo! it all worked as above

  186. Jailbreak.jar doesnt work on my g4 Mac is start the application but Progress” window never shows up. I also tried on windows xp. 1 machine shows you need service pack 2. the newer machine has sp2 but the jailbreak .bat program opens a 10th of a second and closes immediately again.
    Does jailbreak.jar only work on intel macs?
