Yesterday I talked about iJailBreak/touchFree but somehow neglected to mention that iNdependence 1.2.2 also came out. Oops. Well, it doesn't matter now since iNdependence 1.2.3 (Edit: Now 1.2.5) is out now and here are the changes:
Just released version 1.2.3. This version fixes a number of bugs in version 1.2.2, makes 1.1.1 activation a bit easier, and also adds the ability to have 3rd party applications show up in SpringBoard when using the 1.1.1 phone firmware. If you have previously used iNdependence version 1.2.2 to jailbreak/activate a 1.1.1 phone, and want to use 3rd party applications, use the included SpringBoardPatcher application.
Looks like I was lucky to have missed out on posting about iNdependence 1.2.2 as I saw some people having the exact problem (applications not appearing in SpringBoard) yesterday which is fixed in 1.2.3 as you can see. Sadly, iNdependence is only for Mac OSX and iBrickr (which is for windows jailbreaking) has still not been updated to support firmware 1.1.1 at this point.
Note: iBrickr does support downgrading 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 but not jailbreaking/activating 1.1.1 firmware.
