    Ok, so I know I personally was previously really confused about what was actually happening with jailbreaking 1.1.3 so I thought id post this to potentially help some of you and keep you “in the loop”.

    The 1.1.3 Situation

    At the moment…
    You can only “Soft Upgrade” your iPod/iPhone to 1.1.3

    - This means that you aren’t actually running 1.1.3 firmware but your iPod and iTunes will think you are and therefore you are able to use the 1.1.3 apps and Wiggle feature.

    - It doesn't change the "firmware" that is hard coded into the device; only iTunes can do that. All it does is replace the files in the system partition with their 1.1.3 counterparts.

    - This means that as 1.1.3 software is running on a 1.1.2 device bugs are inevitable.

    In the near future…
    You will be able to update your firmware to 1.1.3.

    - Unlike the “Soft Update” your iPod/iPhone will actually be running on 1.1.3 firmware and therefore bugs should be eliminated.

    - The Dev Team already has a working 1.1.3 JailBreak. They are just holding off on releasing it until the iPhone/iPod SDK comes out in late February (16th and 26th being the most likely guesses so far)

    does this mean you will be able to jailbreak DIRECTLY from 1.1.3 without downgrading first?

    I presume it will be the somewhat the same as 1.1.2.

    You may have to install an "OktoPrep" type file and peform the update.
    My best guess is that you will have to have 1.1.2 jailbroken, install a prep and then run the 1.1.3 jailbreak.

    But until it is released i cant tell you 100% for certain.

    no it just means you'll have fw 1.1.3 on your ipod not a soft updated version of fw 1.1.2. there will most likely be a process to jailbreaking 1.1.3 like any other fw version. it might be either easier or harder because of the release of apple's sdk tho.

    Just a spell check thing here. Its INevitable. Evitable is not a word.

    So then if one has a brand new Touch running 1.1.3 natively it'd be advisable to hold off on doing anything until the 1.1.3 JB comes out after the SDK is released?
