From the Well that didn’t take long file: The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW) is reporting that the iPhone Dev Team has released a jailbreak for iPhones running 1.1.1

TUAW: “The hack applies only to the iPhone at this time and is not meant for iPhones with modified basebands. An iPod touch jailbreak will be published at a later date. For the actual hack procedure, check out this zip file (mirror here). You’ll find detailed instructions on:

  • Downgrading to 1.0.2 (if necessary)
  • Preparing the iPhone for a jailbroken update
  • Performing a software update, leaving you with a jailbroken v1.1.1
  • Forcing v1.1.1 to mount read-write so you can access it
  • Installing SSH and BSD world
  • Activating with a Non-ATT SIM
  • Patching SpringBoard to allow third-party applications
  • Clean-up”

Does this mean I’m going to hack my iPhone to run 3rd party apps again? Nope. Apple has something planned I think I’m going to ride it out and see what they have in mind. So my iPhone will be the plain, boring one Apple wants.
