iPhone Firmware 1.1.3 Jailbreak Claimed

iPhone Firmware 1.1.3 Jailbreak Claimed. Jonathan “NerveGas” Zdziarski, developer of a NES emulator for the iPhone and a co-implementer of previous jailbreak methods, has claimed the existence of a separate, software-based 1.1.3 jailbreak that takes “about a half hour for savvy users.” Zdziarski and fellow developers are still withholding instructions for executing the jailbreak, but the image at left (from Zdziarski’s site) allegedly depicts an iPhone jailbroken using the new method.

iPhone Firmware 1.1.3 has been jailbroken (full read/write access to the filesystem), meaning that unofficial third-party applications can be installed under this release. Unfortunately, the current method is so complex that its developers have decided to hold off a public release.

Jailbroken iPhones allow full read/write access to their filesystems, enabling (among other things) the installation of unofficial native applications.
