    Default [1.1.2 OTB] 3 questions before activating and jailbreaking it.

    I've read in some forums that during the process of activation/jailbreak of the mobile phone, Safari may crash or the server of http://jailbreakme.com will not work.

    I've also read that if http://jailbreakme.com doesn't work there are this steps to try:
    1. Try to do a hard reset on the iPhone and try again
    2. Make sure you have a strong wireless signal
    3. Try the jailbreak with your iPhone still connected to the computer and iTunes
    4. Try using http://www.jailbreakme.com instead of http://jailbreakme.com
    5. Disable wireless encryption on your network
    6. Use a Wi-Fi connection without proxy

    1 If this doesn't help what can i do? I've to start the whole process from the beginning? I have to repeat also the activation process?

    2 About Safari crash what can i do if it will crash? Restart the whole process? Also the activation process or only the jailbrak process?

    Thank you in advance.

    from what i understand safari will crash and it's suppose to. after going to jailbreakme.com and installing appsnapp safari will crash and take you back to the main screen. wait a few minutes and if your phone does not restart on its own, power cycle it yourself. if it's still not jailbroken try it a few times. you shouldn't have to start your whole process all over again.

    You are meaning that i will go to this site when i have 1.1.1 firmware because i've downgraded the 1.1.2 OTB...or this link doesn't work with 1.1.2 OTB?

    @Igrekey
    This problem is due to people that forget to disable auto-lock??

    First you need to downgrade the iphone to 1.1.1.
    Check this out: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=461

    If the Jailbreak doesn't work first time, just keep trying. I read somewhere that it helps if your iphone is connected to PC. It should also help if you open 6-7 "heavy" webpages before trying to install jailbreak. It is supposed to slow down iphone, so that the jailbreak process can be finished before iphone manages to shutdown.

    1. downgrade to 1.1.1

    2. do the call back trick
    - set auto lock to never

    3. go to jailbreakme.com
    ( the best way that always works for me is to keep the iphone plugged in with the data cable)

    -once you click on install appsnapp it will go to the lock screen

    -then slide the lock to go to emergency screen

    -press 1 and call

    -answer call- then press hold.

    -cancel the second call-back, this will take you to a screen which will show you percentage of the software downloaded .

    -once done the phone will restart ..

    this works for me 100 percent (tried with about 58 phones)

    hope this helps

    also if you need to uprade to 1.1.2

    go to installer- tweaks-
    and install oktoprep
    the update your iphone back to 1.1.2(shift + click update) and select the 1.1.2 firmware (avail at iphone.unlock.no)
    and then jailbreak withe jailbreak for 1.1.2 also on the same site

    cheers

    It's the "Just keep trying" that i don't understand.This means that i have to reinsert the link and try more and more to connect the phone to the link,or this means that i've to power off the phone and repeat the jailbreak instructions?

    Thank also krimp for the help!!

    Try the jailbreak with your iPhone still connected to the computer and iTunes.
    In my experience, this is what helped the most.

    Just keep trying means, keep loading jailbreakme.com and keep clicking on the install AppSnap button.
