iPhone hacking just got a whole lot easier!
Category: Blog

This evening I decided today would be the day I upgraded to 1.0.2. Despite a few hiccups with the restoration, the update proceeded and my iPhone was now running Apple’s latest and greatest release. Sadly, that also meant my iPhone was now pristine again without any of the apps I have come to love on it. After hearing about the new Installer.app GUI installer, I had to give it a shot.

This is about as simple of a howto as one could get, the steps to getting Installer.app running (which opens the door for SSH, Terminal, etc) is as follows:

  1. Download the Installer.app GUI installer from here.
  2. Run the application and follow the onscreen instructions (connecting phone, shutting down iTunes, selecting current phone firmware revision).
  3. Sit back and wait 2-3 minutes. It literally does everything else for you!

No more do you need long howtos, no more do you need to worry about missing steps. Just sit back and let the GUI app do it’s business and you are good to go. I’m still a little irritated they haven’t opened up the source on the app, but otherwise the process couldn’t be simpler. If you haven’t hacked your phone yet, what are you waiting for?
