ijailbreakme.com???

so what i needed to know was ..what update is most safe...the dev teams seems to have soo many bugs, NateTrues is illegal...the only one that seems ok to me is the one at ijailbreakme.com, but since we are in Canada it does not say anything about the UNLOCK status...does it keep your unlock?...if not, PLEASE tell me which method you used..i am currently on 1.1.1 so thats why i figured it would be best to use the ijailbreakme.com method.
any help?

I think you mean jailbreakme.com. That solution works great to jailbreak and activate 1.1.1 firmware iPhones. As for the unlock, which method did you use? I know iPhoneSIMFree's software unlock has survived every firmware update, even updating to 1.1.3, but some of the other software unlocks had problems going to 1.1.2.

Which unlock method did you use?

i dont think many people are are aware of this new method...theres a guide at iJailBreak - Home .... its an update via installer...but you can update straight from 1.1.1 to 1.1.3 ....and you can also clear that 185 mb file that everyone has been complaining about...so its much different from the other methods...i havent upgraded yet because im trying to get more comfortable with the 1.1.3 upgrade methods and ive seen so many people mess it up..and i dont want 600 down the drain lol

I, too, have been watching very carefully to decide which method to use. A couple days ago I followed the dev team method (not via the installer, but via SSH) and had a lot of fun with my new 1.1.3 iPhone. Went for a long walk and tracked myself on the new Maps app using the locate me function. (First you have to run a one time separate app called Locate me which is available by the installer. And you have to do this every time you reboot. But after that the cool new fauxGPS thing works great in Canada.) BUT later that day I noticed calendar and then Maps stopped working. They would just crash. I wasted many hours that evening trying to solve the problems, and then downgraded to 1.1.2 which was a bit of a rigamarole, but doable. Now I'm waiting to try 1.1.3 again. I stress **waiting**. Each day there are new developments. I notice the DevTeam installer-based version is now "Official 1.1.3 upgrader 1.1.3-2" with a "2" on the end. Also there is the 13 year old wiz kid Arix and his iJailBreak 1.0. This also works via the installer, hence is platform independent. As of yesterday people are reporting success with both of these. But I'm going to wait just a bit longer. Keep checking these sites for most updated and reliable information:

It's easy enough to delete it via ssh or sftp. I think it's more like 300MB.

I used the ijailbreak mobile method yesterday. It was very painless. The only step I had to take was turning off the auto-lock. I just left the touch sitting on the table and after it was done, I had 1.1.3.

Anyone try this with a jailbroken unlocked 1.1.1 iPhone yet? Does it break the unlock?
