    Hi everybody.

    Since me (and some others AFAIK) can't apply the 1.1.2 update due to the infamous "error 1602", here is a quick guide of what I've done on my ipod to go directly to 1.1.3 from 1.1.1 JB:

    -downgrade to 1.1.1
    -go to http://jailbreakme.com and install JB

    now you should have a jailbroken 1.1.1.

    -Go into installer, then install System/BSD subsystem then OpenSSH
    -Hard reboot (shut down you ipod by holding power then restart it)
    -Using WinSCP (or what you want), go to /System/Library/CoreServices then edit the file "SystemVersion.plist". in this file, change 1.1.1 to 1.1.2.
    -now go into installer, then install the official 1.1.3-3 app to soft upgrade to 1.1.3
    -launch the soft upgrade app and wait! (note that it is safer to choose the option which erase everything, as we're upgrading from 1.1.1)


    I tested last night, it works fine, though I've read in the previous pc version readme that upgrading from 1.1.1 may cause problems with DRM/Nikita, but I don't have any DRM'ed files to test so I can't say if it's true. Besides this potential issue, everything seems to work nice.

    For those like me with the redundant "error 1602" problem it may be a solution, while waiting the true 1.1.3 jailbreak which will be released after the official SDK.

    This looks like it worked, but then when I tried to reboot after loading summerboard I never got past the apple screen... I guess summerboard doesnt work with 1.1.3?

    DRM'ed files do not work when you upgrade from 1.1.1.

    I tried this myself and its true: DRM'ed files do not work when you upgrade from 1.1.1.
    What that means? Well if you bought music from iTunes Store you will not be able to listen to them!
