Here we go people! 1.1.3 is now achievable on your jailbroken/unlocked iPhone running firmware 1.1.1 or 1.1.2
It is recommended you uninstall ALL your previous applications on the iPhone before doing this upgrade since the application installation directory has changed in 1.1.3. Re-install them once on 1.1.3 to avoid errors and conflicts.
Note: This Jailbreak method is now outdated as Nate has not updated the issues with this method. Use this method as an alternative to this guide.
What you need:
You must have a 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 jailbroken phone with Installer.app installed.
Connect your iPhone to the computer
Extract iBrickr 1.1.3 from the file(ibrickr-jb113.zip) we downloaded earlier. Make sure you extract it to the desktop!
A folder will be extracted called ibrickr-jb113. If you have Vista/2000 from this folder right click ibrickr.exe then select properties from the popup menu. Otherwise if you have XP procede to Step 6.
Click the Compatibility tab and check Run this program in compatibility mode for:. Then select Windows XP (Service Pack 2 from the drop down. Finally click the Apply button.
Now double click ibrickr.exe to launch the application.
When iBrickr launches click the Check my phone! button.
You will get a message telling you which firmware version you are currently on. It will also let you know if your phone can be upgraded to 1.1.3 jailbroken. If it can, click the Do it button.
iBrickr will download the necessary files. You will then be presented with the option to find the 1.1.3 firmware on your disk or to download it from Apple. Click the Download it from Apple button or choose the find on disk option if you downloaded 1.1.3 earlier.
Once the firmware has been downloaded you will be prompted to confirm the beginning of installation. Click the Do you have to ask? button to continue.
Again once everything is ready you will be asked to confirm installation. Click the Ready to go! button to begin.
iBrickr has now completed its part of the job.

Step Twenty One

Your iPhone will install the Software Update package and then reboot. This takes a few minutes and it looks like the phone is stuck at the “installing package” bar and at the spinning circle later on, but do not touch the phone during this time it will reboot on its own when the process is done.
At reboot you get a “Edit Home Screen” message. Click the Dismiss button and you are now on 1.1.3:
After getting on 1.1.3 make sure you refresh the sources in installer and update installer and BSD subsystem
Making “Locate Me” feature in Google app work:
Get into installer and install the “Locate Me” Application found under utilities. Run this app and once it finds your location your google maps then the locater in the app also starts to work. If you do a hard reboot of the phone then this gets reset and you have to run the installer locate me app again.
Hybrid View Now works by using the guide above:
Now for some housekeeping :
IF YOU ARE ONE OF THOSE THAT UPGRADED WITHOUT UNINSTALLING THEM FIRST AND NOW HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE APPS, FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Install MobileFinder (if you already had it, uninstall it and install again)
2) Launch MobileFinder from the springboard.
3) Tap “Settings” and turn on “System File Access”
4) Tap “Finder” then “Up”. You should be in the file system now.
5) Navigate to private/var/root/Library/Installer/ and delete LocalPackages.plist
6) Reinstall Community Sources, BSD subsystem and OpenSSH (The username is mobile and the password is alpine).
7) Reinstall the rest of your 3rd party apps.
Getting back some space:
You should also delete the 300+MB file (113_upgrade_image.bin) from /var/root/media/softupdate that was used during the jailbreak. SSH into your iPhone and delete that file. Alternatively you can also run the cleanup package that has recently shown up in installer under the system category
Turning off SSH:
Once you are done using SSH, don’t forget to turn it off to save battery life. Download this app and use it to turn SSH on and off. To use it SSH into your phone and drop the extracted folder SSH.app into the applications directory.
Questions / problems while running the 1.1.3 soft upgrade from Installer:
I don’t see the “1.1.3 soft upgrade” package in my Installer.
Make sure you have the “Community Sources” package installed, and hit “Refresh” in the Sources tab. It should show up under “All packages”.
When I install the package, it says “Main script execution error”. When I hit OK it looks like it crashed.
This happens to some people, but it doesn’t appear to affect operation. Your phone should update in about 10 minutes and reboot by itself. If that doesn’t happen, you’ll need to restore and try again.
When I install the package, it completely crashes my phone with the progress bar at halfway.
This is normal. It’s updating your phone – don’t touch it! Just leave it plugged in and let it do its thing. It’s okay if your screen turns off too.
