I personally really like this method, it is very simple and I think it is easier than the other two methods I have posted today. So if you haven’t already done so you can give this one a try. Also this is the only way right now that lets you get to 1.1.3 from a jailbroken 1.1.1 iPod Touch.

So for those of you who did purchase the $20 apps, you can use iTunes 7.6 to restore down to 1.1.1. And once you have completed the Jailbreak all you have to do is sync your iPod to your computer and the apps will come back. The previous problem was that iTunes 7.6 messed up oktoprep and once you restored to 1.1.1 you could no longer get back to 1.1.2. And of course all the Jailbreak methods until now needed 1.1.2. So if you are stuck or 1.1.1 or just an easy way to get from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 this is the best answer right now.

AriX and I are VERY pleased to announce the immediate availability of iJailBreakMobile 1.0, a new branch of the wildly-successful iJailBreak utility.

iJailBreakMobile allows iPod Touches and iPhones to be automatically upgraded to, and jailbreak on 1.1.3 through Installer.app.

The great thing about iJailBreakMobile is that it does not require the use of a computer, so regardless of what operating system of architecture your computer may be running on, iJailBreakMobile will work just fine. As such, this fixes the File Not Found error and PowerPC compatibility issues.

You must start on a jailbroken installation of 1.1.1 or 1.1.2. To downgrade from 1.1.3 to 1.1.1, please visit www.ijailbreak.com/downgrade113. To downgrade from 1.1.2 to 1.1.1, please visit www.ijailbreak.com/downgrade112. iPod Touch owners need only follow page 1 and then visit JailbreakMe.com to jailbreak. iPhone owners should do the first and second pages (which includes jailbreaking). At this point, your device is ready to use iJailBreak.

To jailbreak, go into Installer.app, tap sources at the bottom right, then Edit at the top right, then Add at the top left, and add http://ijailbreak.com/repo.plist. Then, under the iJailBreakMobile category, choose the right upgrade package for you – if you’re on a jailbroken 1.1.1, choose 1.1.1; if you’re on a jailbroken 1.1.2, choose 1.1.2. The installation should take about 45 minutes, depending on your Internet connection. Once done, the device will try to reboot automatically. If you see that it’s stuck with just the “spinning cog” on the screen, it’s safe to manually reboot the device, at which point you’ll enter into 1.1.3.

NOTE: This will not remove, break, or mess with iPhone activation or unlocks. Everything should work as before.

Also in the iJailBreakMobile category is “Remove 1.1.3 Jailbreak Data” (only for use with devices who upgraded from 1.1.1)), “iPod Touch Software Upgrade” (free and legal way to install the iPhone apps on the iPod Touch), and the “Fix Mail Passwords” package, which will patch Mail.app for those with it installed and fix the issue with it remembering passwords (this issue also exists within the Apple-distributed version).

For those who are wondering, the 1.1.1 jailbreak is based on the Nate True method while the 1.1.2 jailbreak is based on the iPhone Dev Team method. As such, iJailBreakMobile is released under the GNU General Public License version 2.

Let me know how it works out for you guys.
