[FAQ&GUIDE]Common 1.1.3 errors explained and fixed!(UPDATE: MAKING A PDF) Common 1.1.3 errors explained and fixed UPDATED: Friday, February 22 2008 - "Added 1.4 Patching up your 1.1.3 JB" DISCLAIMER: I am NOT RESPONSIBLE for ANY damage done to your iPod. All the information in this guide is to be used AT YOUR RISK! Don't come running to me and saying "zOMFG, U BR0X0RZ MY 1P0D!!!!!!!!!11!!!ELEVEN!!!1!!!111!11". Also, I'm not responsible for ANY LEGAL ISSUES!!! I'm leaning towards the January App Pack and ROM downloads. Remember: "Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy." -JOSEPH CAMPBELL README: This tutorial covers often-seen issues with 1.1.3, such as iPhysics levelpacks, BossTool Applications moving errors, the Spinning Ring of Death, and so on and so forth. Not all problems have fixes, so be prepared to Restore sometimes (yes, the idea of having to do a Restore gives you the jibblies, doesn't it). I'll give you my definition of brick, so if yours is worse you don't crap your pants: a brick is when a device becomes useless, and to be fixed must be revived somehow (in our case usually with a Restore).

Downgrading 3.1 Downgrade to 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 1. Pre-Jailbreak Instructions 1.1 A Checklist Before you begin jailbreaking 1.1.3 there's some things you need first: -A jailbroken iPod Touch running 1.1.2 firmware -BSD Subsystem 1.5 or higher -Settings > General > Auto-Lock > Never -20 minutes to 1.5 hours of time on your hands As stated above the jailbreak can take from 20 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on your internet. The jailbreak consists of downloading the 1.1.3 iPod Software (IPSW), extracting it, downloading the patch, applying the patch to the fimrware, applying the patch to SpringBoard, and installing the 1.1.3 firmware. A lengthy process indeed, and you can thank all the devs out there who made it possible, but let's stay on track here. The following changes will happen once the JB is finished: -All apps will be lost -All settings will be lost -All previous hacks will be lost, etc. Basically everything will be lost, as if you just restored your iPod, except now you're running jailbroken 1.1.3 on your device. So, now that you have met all the prerequisites let's continue... 1.2 Which jailbreak do I do? As you might have noticed there's TONS of different 1.1.3 jailbreaks our there. In this sea of jailbreaks there's three different kinds: -Nate True's Jailbreak w/ Computer (cre.ations.net) -iJailBreakMobile w/o Computer (iJailBreak.com) -DevTeam jailbreak w/o Computer (iphone.fiveforty.net [DOWN]) -Zibri's TRUE Jailbreak w/ Computer (ZiPhone's Blog) I'll try to explain each method the best I can: Nate True's Jailbreak w/ Computer AKA iBrickr: On my Mac I've never been able to get it to work, but a friend of mine used it for his jailbreak and it's been working great ever since. It creates symlinks in the root filesystem, which can cause errors when the SDK Apps start coming out. It's best to leave the root filesystem intact as much as you can. IMO could be better. iJailBreakMobile w/o Computer: I wasn't able to get it to work, and neither were tons of other people here on the iPod Touch Fans forums. It's Nate True's jailbreak, except you don't need to use a computer, and it's no better than iBrickr. IMO Epic Fail! DevTeam Jailbreak w/o Computer: I was able to get the DevTeam jailbreak to work, and it's the most preferred method at these forums. Out of the other jailbreaks it has the highest success rate. You have a good chance not screwing anything up if you do this jailbreak for 1.1.3. It runs as an app, and has a GUI updating you of the percentage progress of each step. IMO the best. Zibri's Jailbreak w/ Computer: ZiPhone is a TRUE jailbreak. What's the difference? All the other 1.1.3 Jailbreaks consist of hacking your device whilst updating. ZiPhone actually attacks the firmware straight on, so you don't need to have jailbroken 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 before jailbreaking 1.1.3. ZiPhone also works with 1.1.4. I think I have an idea of what jailbreak you're going to do now. The DevTeam one, right? No? Ok, but stuff in my guide might have a different consequence, since all of this has been tested on a 1.1.3 DevTeam Jailbreak. 1.3 Jailbreaking 1.1.3 Make sure that you've read the checklist (Chapter 1.1) and that all the requirements are met. Once you have checked it jailbreak 1.1.3 by following these steps: Open Installer and go to System. Install the "Official 1.1.3 Upgrader" package. If you haven't already done this step, go to All Packages and install "BSD Subsystem". If you haven't already done this step, quit Installer, go to Settings > General > Auto-Lock > Never. Connect to your wireless network. Run Upgrader.app on your Home Screen. When prompted about a Restore, choose Yes. Come back in 20 minutes to 1.5 hours and it should be done. You should now have 1.1.3 JB firmware on your iPod. Enjoy it 1.4 Patching your 1.1.3 JB It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Let's make sure that doesn't happen by fixing up some issues that may come your way. This list will grow as other stuff comes in. I'm mostly going to post stuff that lowers the chances or makes it easier to fix a brick, hopefully without having to Restore. OpenSSH at reboot: From what I've had people telling me this will start SSH at bootup. This allows you to connect to your iPod through SSH immediately at boot, even if you have the SRoD (something I don't understand, since you need Network Services up and running as well). This has been untested, so I'm not sure it works, but I've heard success stories, so who knows? I don't see how this can brick your iPod, but as always, at your own risk: Open Installer and go to All Packages Look for OpenSSH and install it. If you don't have it look around on the forums for the source to get it. Also, try to get the official version (signs of it being official are that the name of the package is OpenSSH, nothing else, and getting it from an author like ModMyiFone.com is probably not official) Now, install BossPrefs, also found in the All Packages category Open BossPrefs and set OpenSSH on reboot to On. If you don't have that option look for it in Installer (once again the All Packages category). You should find a whole group of addons for BossPrefs in the B's. Not the next time you get the SRoD you should be able to SSH into your iPod (that includes the root filesystem) and fix the error you're having. They usually occur when you change the password from something else other than alpine or applying a theme in SummerBoard. Reset your settings: Unless there's some big setting you changed you may as well, as this usually fixes most problems with playing purchased music on your iPod. I suppose you don't really need to do this unless necessary, but for those who want to...Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. Also Reset your Network Settings and Keyboard Dictionary if you want to go all out. It's usually for the better, but ignore this if you don't want to go through the hassle of puting it all back to what it was.
