It worked flawlessly... seems like you are all whining and no1 is willed to help himself... dammit this board seriously lost quality.
what is interesting to me is that i can restart the iphone with "reboot" from a terminal and it works fine, but if i restart by holding down power and home it goes into recovery... i have done all the other fixes, and haven't had this 1.1.3 offical jailbroken unit actually crash on its own, but do want the ability to do so if need arises.
anyway, wondering if the home+power reboot is a lower level reboot than the soft reboot from using the reboot command from a terminal.
Dear all, I have been suffered by the same problem for these few days. I always recovered iphone from the recovery mode by typing command with iPHUC on Windows ("cmd setenv auto-boot true...." I even memorized them).
Today, based on the information in this forum (or that in ModMyiphone?), I launched independence ver.1.3.1 on Macintosh to kick out iPhone from the recovery mode. It worked and it even worked for a permanent solution. Since then, iPhone always reboot normally without entering the recovery mode.
people just use Nates i did i got everything working no problems at all.
Nate True's update to 1.1.3 is working fine for me, no problems so far!
OK...here's the deal. I had this reboot problem after the JB and I've managed to fix it. First, I am a legit AT&T customer. I wanted to update the baseband to get natively functioning locate feature in maps, etc.
SO...I followed this guide:
But with a few differences. The guide is written for Nate's method. I was going to use the dev teams method and couldn't get it to work without the constant reboot issue!
Here's what worked for me...there may be steps you can skip...but this is what I did and it worked.
Once you finish step 10 (just finished jailbreaking 1.1.2), download BSD Subsystem 2.0.
Do not install SSH or anything else...or update installer! Keep the version of installer that gets added in the 1.1.2 JB.
Exit installer. Go back into installer and install the "Official 1.1.3 Upgrader" Version 1.1.3-2. I think it's in installer already...no need to add sources. If it doesn't show up under the recent or system tabs, add community resources and it'll be there. Once you install, it'll put an icon on your home screen. Make sure you change auto lock to never, then tap the icon, DO NOT SELECT HACKTIVATE, and let it do it's thing. It'll take a long time!
At the end it says "attempting to reboot". My install never did...it hung for about 10 minutes, then I manually rebooted and all was well.
After rebooting I think I was fully activated...or maybe I connected to itunes and it activated right away. Either way, everything was good. Installer was automatically updated. I installed BSD Subsystem 2.0 again, because it was gone after the upgrade. Everything works fine, no reboot or other issues. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or problems!
Good luck, and enjoy. Props to everyone who made this stuff work.
