    OK, My 1.1.3 is running superbly. Wiggly Icons, Webclips, All the $20 apps, 99% of previous games, system tools etc.

    Below is a list of the methods I used to fix the problems I experienced, I have not written any of these, I am just collating the info for you in ONE PLACE.

    Take your time, dont rush with the fixes.

    OK: below are a list of links on how to sort out the small problems I had:

    THERE IS NOW A NEW DEV METHOD, OFFICIAL THREAD :

    http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32332

    IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH SOUND OR MOVIE PLAYBABCK FOLLOWING A 1.1.3 JB, on your iPod Go to:

    SETTINGS >>> GENERAL >>> RESET >>> RESET ALL SETTINGS and CONFIRM.

    Your may need to run the reset twice.




    Adding the $20 App Pack for Free, Add this source:
    http://ipodtouchmaster.com/files/repo.xml then refresh. the App Pack is listed under Categories

    Or This one ( installs JB and APP Pack direct from installer, not tested by me, but feedback seems good )

    CLICK HERE to see how to change the permissions correctly using WinSCP.

    Installer Crashes to Springboard : ( Symptom can also be Apps Not displaying on Springboard after install )

    Add this source:

    sleepers.net/iphonerepo Uninstall all 3rd party apps, then from Utilities add bossTools 034.

    Use BossTools to move the Application folder to the media Partition. You know this has worked when

    a. It takes about 30 seconds to perform the move
    b. The Button that said "Move Applications" now says "Apps Already Moved"

    NOTE: if you are confident with Commands, you can create the symlink yourslef to move the application folder, use this guide:

    I upgraded to 1.1.3 from a Clean 1.1.1 >> 1.1.2 JB. the DEV guide states you should have OpenSSH and BSD Subsystem installed as part of the Jailbreak preparation ( It says that in the JB Guide I linked to.... )

    I know we activate SSH as part of the 1.1.2 Jailbreak, but it seems that the Dev Team Method Prefers OPENSSH.....

    Dumb Question, but, have you checked the Password. I really am not trying to be patronising, the Default password is : alpine.

    If not, what is the actual message you get?

    Install BossTools on its own
    Move the Application Folder
    Install As MANY APPS AS YOU LIKE :)

    I have left bossTools installed, its useful anyway....
