iPhone 1.1.1 and 3rd Party Apps

iNde­pen­dence for iPhone
It ain’t pret­ty, but I used this to upgrade to the 1.1.1 firmware, and then to man­u­al­ly copy installer.app onto the phone. Hel­lo 3rd-par­ty apps!

Beware, this is a lot more com­pli­cat­ed than the way things were, before 1.1.1.

  • Hey, I used the same (iNden­pen­dence to the 1.1.1 firmware). I tried to man­u­al­ly copy apps (installer and oth­er) into the phone. They dont show up on the phone though they are in appli­ca­tion fold­er with the right per­mis­sions. Any ideas?

  • There are two accounts, root and mobile, each with dif­fer­ent pass­words:

    usr: root
    pass: dot­tie

    usr: mobile
    pass: alpine

    I think that I had to use the mobile cre­den­tials when I copied Installer.app onto the phone. Try that!

  • Hey Ned­ward ;)
    Thanks for the info. I’ve done that too (mobile cre­den­tials) I was able to copy installer into the iphone but still noth­ing show­ing on the “desk­top”.

  • hmm, and the app shows up in the list of apps on the phone?

    I had to fol­low the instruc­tions very pre­cise­ly. The only advice that I can offer is to try fol­low­ing it again… use it to down­grade, and go through the process again to upgrade to 1.1.1, and jailbreak/activate/etc.

    Good luck!
