A “one-click” (almost zero-click) jailbreak has been released for iPhone 1.1.1. Just point your iPhone’s Safari browser at http://www.jailbreakme.com/, tap the “install” link, and in a few minutes, your iPhone now has Installer running on it. And, as a byproduct, the TIFF bug is repaired (preventing further exploitation of this “feature.”)
iPhone Atlas, reports in an interview with Nicholas “Drudge” Penree, one of the developers of AppSnapp, that 150,000 visits have been made to the site resulting in approximately 100,000 downloads. Earlier, Apple itself had estimated that 250,000 iPhones have been “jailbroken,” so this 100,000 number may be a major increase in freed phones.
AppSnapp allows the installation of 3rd party applications on the iPhone; AnySim is necessary for using 3rd party cellular services.
