iFuntastic Auto-Jailbreaks iPhone v1.1.1, Rocks My Socks
iFuntastic time, ladies and gentleman. BitSplit, the man behind iFuntastic, has announced that version 4.6.1 is now available. This new version, along with various other improvements, makes it super easy to jailbreak the latest iPhone software version. Once jailbroken, an iPhone is able to freely load and run third party applications and mods. On top of simply jailbreaking v1.1.1, iFuntastic can now crop and add custom ringtones.
You may remember the guide we published a while back which outlined how to jailbreak a v1.1.1 iPhone. It was quite a few steps and required some terminal knowledge. Not for the non-geek by any stretch of the imagination. Thankfully, bitSplit has come up with a very simple way to perform the same steps, and in half the time.
To jailbreak, you may either start from version 1.0.2 or 1.1.1. iFuntastic will perform the necessary steps and prompt you for any necessary actions. Once complete, you can enjoy the benefits of third party apps and an improved iPhone.
Ringtones have also gotten a significant update. Now you can easily add your own custom ringtones to v1.1.1, no unshackling required! You may choose to either upload an audio file in its entirety, or use the built-in ringtone cropper to non-destructively customize any audio file for ringtone use. If you’re short on ringtones or creativity, grab a few from ThemeMyPhone.com
Changes since last version:
- customized ringtone support for 1.1.1 (unshackling not required)
new functions for Intel and PowerPC:
- Downgrade firmware 1.1.1 to firmware 1.0.2
- Upgrade firmware 1.0.2 to unshackled firmware 1.1.1
- Unshackle firmware 1.1.1: combines the above two
The process is tricky, but it only requires patience and a ridiculous number of (automated) restarts and switches to iTunes and back.
Terminal, SSH, WiFi, CyberDuck, AppTapp, Installer, iNdependence:
none are required!
A wizard will guide you through each process.
You’ll end up with an unshackled 1.1.1 phone, with Installer uh, installed –
ready to customize and install native applications and ringtones.
- combined Setup and Troubleshooting pages into one simplified page
- automated phone restart and recovery/dfu modes: no more need to hold down buttons!
(well, except on PowerPC – and when things go wrong…)
iFuntastic requires a Mac running OS X 10.4.9 or greater and is compatible with iTunes 7.4.1,2 and iPhone Firmware 1.0.2 & 1.1.1.
If you have installed a previous version, you may need to remove the “TempFiles1″ folder from “/Users/Username/Library/Application Support/bitSplit Enterprises/iFuntastic” for this version to work properly.
Of note, iFuntastic is now a shareware program. Each function allows five free uses before a $5 fee is requested.
