Thank you so much!! I uninstalled the previous jailbreak and hacks and this one went flawlessly. USE_ALT_FONTS is working well, too. Happy dance!!

Great news. Thank you for your hard work.
Just a small question, for those who already have the jailbreak with the bridge by "NiLuJe", do they need to install this too? as you're saying it is "the recommended jailbreak package" ?


thanks again..

You don't necessarily need to, but yes, I'd recommend to just do it. If nothing else, you'll have the added safety of the "rescue pack". And it won't break anything that worked before. And of course, it's fun to watch

Jailbreak failed. The info on the logtext reads everything OK until:

Installing rescue pack (diags)
FAILED
Failed to backup original diags passwords
JAILBREAK FAILED

I did use your newest package. Any idea what went wrong ?

Looks like jailbreak itself successed, only installing diags mode failed. You should be now able to install USB network and debug it with full access to the device

Just a question:

Does downloading the file make me subject to the terms above? Or is it just installing the JB?

Splitting hairs, eh?

You can download and examine the file all that you want. You just aren't allowed to publish some specific sort of information after you did so.

(Yes, I also hate all of this legal stuff, but that's just the way it is today.)

Thanks

Wow, this is great news. Just tried it out and it works perfectly (even usbNetworking) Now I have to figure out, what other extensions are running safely.
Any plans about JBPatch?

Thanks a lot for your constant work, ixtab!

This is indeed an unexpected failure. The relevant part is in line 332 of jailbreak.sh:

Code:
cp -f "$current" "$backup" && log "Backed up diags passwords to ${backup_relative} on diags partition" || fail "Failed to backup original diags passwords"
It seems like the cp command failed - but it really, really shouldn't, and I have no idea why it did. Does anybody have a clue?

@aceflor: do you keep getting this error every time? As said, you can re-install the jailbreak as many times as you want. Maybe the failure just miraculously goes away on the second attempt...

That is next on my TODO list. But hey, it's "one thing after the other", and despite my nickname, I'm only human.

I know, take your time. I was just surprised how easy and flawlessly the jailbreak worked as it was released today

Two possibilities there -

Is the copy being made to a partition with limited space? (since you don't report the error return code, we can't say if it is -ENOSPC or not).

The "log" command might have failed -
Similar types of problems (-ENOSPC) plus those associated with giving syslog-ng a chance to run enough to keep up with the messages.

Note: Complicated shell expressions, any part of which might fail, can be hell to debug.
It would be better to capture the return code(s) and then either continue or report them.
