  • iOS 4.1 Now Live : Do Not Update!


    Paul put out a warning today that was advised from the Dev Team, to steer clear of the iOS 4.1 release, which is now currently being pushed live from Apple. That's right, it is now LIVE, and you are strongly advised NOT to update.

    Again, this is NOT a big update, however Game Center is an new feature we are all looking forward to it, at least for those with supporting devices, and of course included in the update is the long overdue proximity sensor fix. All in all, it's not quite worth it to lose all the fancy goodies we currently get with out 4.0 jailbreak/unlock.

    So, If your Jailbroken and require an unlock, again, Please stay away from this. But if you have no desire for either, feel free to update and post your comments below. Good Luck

    If you haven't already, backup your SHSH Blobs before it's too late.

      For the record, my prox is effed up and I want a fix too. It'd just be a waste of time for them to code a fix and try to sell it, when a fix has already been coded for free.

      Yeah, I would update.

      I have the 4th Generation iPod Touch in my hands at last. 4.1 seems really nice. This is my first 4.x.x device, so I can't say what the differences are.

      There is a strange setting in the Accessibility options that turns everything into a negative picture, though, which is kind of interesting.

      Hmm... even more interesting is the fact that when I take a screenshot in that mode and send it to myself it converts it back to the proper colors

      Those accessibility settings have been around since at least 3.1.

      I understand but.... it takes less effore for them to keep doing these retarded update jailbreaks if we can just have the main improvements. I mean the cat and mouse is rediculous. Yea, people who buy their phones with non jailbreakable softwear suffer, but they are going to anyway, they dont jailbreak every single firmware update so, in the meantime, help us with the MAJOR issues.

      But My question was WHAT is the BLUETOOTH issue?

Grrrr....) then right now, anyway you look at it you're stuck in jail. Upgrading to 4.1 might seem like no biggie, but 4.1 means you'll lose the future ability to unlock, unless there's a carrier unlock developed at some point for the new baseband. Even if you're happy with AT&T, what if you have to travel overseas at some point? Are you really prepared to pay the outrageous fees AT&T charge, when you could instead just pop in a local SIM card? If there is ever a JB for 4.1, and if that same JB works for 4.02, iPhone 4 owners on 4.02 might be better off NOT upgrading.

      Not so much of a problem for the lucky people(including me ) here in Canada who bought the unlocked version from Apple. However losing JB is still as big of a deal as unlock!!!

      If you have that big of an issue with the sensor just upgrade and lose your jailbreak, if it isn't worth losing JB it isn't a big deal.

      Just noticed this:

      4.1 seems to keep track of the accessories you attach to it


      The model number corresponds with the Radioshack stock number of the cable

      Yes I am sure. Dev team announced no JB will be coming for 4.0.2. And proximity fix alone is worth upgrading. I left my JB for the prox fix.

      This is not possible given both proximity settings and bluetooth settings are embedded directly into the .ipsw file itself. I spoke with comex about this prior to upgrading my 2nd iphone 4.. best bet is to hold off if you need jailbreak apps.
