  • iPhone 1.1.3 Firmware Preview Gallery
    From Gearlive:

    "Looks like the soon-to-be-released iPhone firmware 1.1.3 has quite a few surprises. We were able to get a look at it, and here is what we found:



    New Features sighted:
    * Edit Home Screen
    * Drag Calculator App
    * Drag Mail App
    * New Google Maps Menu
    * New Google Maps Options
    * Google Maps Locate Me Feature
    * SMS Multiple People
    * New Bookmarks Menu
    * Add Bookmark to Home Screen
    * Bookmark on Home Screen

    That is all we have found for now. We also know that is you used AnySIM to unlock your phone, you can expect the 1.1.3 update to brick it. Good times.
    Take a look at our iPhone Firmware 1.1.3 Gallery for a photo tour of the new stuff.

      I don't get how some of you can be so excited about this!? haha.. it seems really bare-bones. Nothing very exciting.

      Oh well.

      This just in from Gizmodo.. Looks like we are SOL on both jailbreaking it or unlocking it for a long time.

      We had some doubts, but now we can tell you we are sure: the new firmware 1.1.3 is real. Or like Nate says: "if it is a hoax, they did a buttload of work." The fact is that it installs normally and it works perfectly, according to all the evidence that Natetrue has brought to our attention. We believe this evidence because it's technically sound and it has been provided by one of the most respected and veteran iPhone hackers and the author of iBrickr (which is a must for any Windows iPhone owner).

      Nate says that "it installs on the phone no-questions-asked and for that you need to have Apple's private key, which i can confirm that the iphone hacker community does not have—as much as we would love to have it." Indeed, Apple's private encrypted key, used to authenticate all accesses to the iPhone most-private guts, hasn't been uncovered yet by anyone in the world.

      In other words, no firmware upgrades can be installed without the knowledge of this key. Furthermore, the idea that someone would have access to this key and spend months to create a fully functional firmware update, with key new features and without any documentation whatsoever seems just absolutely silly.

      Effects on unlocks and Third-party applications
      According to Nate, the update breaks AnySim's unlocks. Logically, you can't unlock this update using AnySim and there's no alternative to iTunes for activation. If you want to activate, it will only work using iTunes and a standard AT&T account. As he points out: "that is the only way we have been able to activate so far." Nate tried to upgrade an AnySim 1.2u iPhone and it failed. Even while he was able to force it to boot, the phone refused to activate even with a normal AT&T SIM card. "I suspect it's due to the fact that the baseband could not be upgraded to the 1.1.3 'required' version", he pointed out.

      Nate didn't try other updates or solutions, like iPhone Sim Free or any of the hardware-based ones, like TurboSIM. In theory, these should work just fine, but jailbreak and activation would be absolutely impossible for the time being. We would have to wait until the update gets released in the open to try new alternative activation methods.

      Your favorite third-party apps will be gone too, with no possibility of return for now. The update fixes the bugs which allowed "the jailbreak method we were using for 1.1.2, locking us out again, as expected."

      Other effects
      Like previous firmware upgrades, whatever is in the user partition remains unchanged. Only the Apple-owned part is affected by 1.1.3. So for those of you who claim that this is a fake because it says "Nate" in the network instead of "AT&T," that's the reason. Nate changed the network name in 1.1.2 using Erica's Make It Mine program. The changed network name, like with 1.1.1 and any other previous firmware, is kept through firmware upgrades.

      Well that sucks! But as everyone has already mentioned there is still nothing major that this update does. No MMS/Copy Paste, Video etc.....

      Does this mean the 1.1.3 WILL have a baseband upgrade??? I NEED to know this, haha! I wanna go out and buy the iPhone immediately but I need to be sure that there will be a SW unlock for the 1.1.2 OTB shortly..

      Wow, is it just me, or are people exaggerating the difficulty of unlocking a 1.1.3 phone??

      Someone said something along the lines of:

      Downgrade to 1.1.2, then to 1.1.1, then 1.0.2, then revirginize, upgrade upgrade upgrade etc.

      After unlocking about 200 phones or so, i would venture to say it will work like this:

      Downgrade 1.1.3 directly to 1.1.1 (nothing says this cant be done), goto jailbreakme.com to jailbreak, load a new version of Ok2Prep, upgrade to 1.1.3, jailbreak it, anySIM it.

      This process will take no longer than 40 minutes tops. I know this, because its the current process i use at least 4 times a day for 1.1.2 phones (upgraded ones, duh, not OTB.) There is absolutely no need to downgrade the baseband anymore, unless the phone was previously unlocked. And in that instance, all you do is add i.unlock.no to your repository, and run the BBDowngrader (which will be updated to work with new bootloaders, duh).

      So at the ABSOLUTE WORST CASE SCENARIO, where your phone is somehow "bricked":

      Load 1.1.1, jailbreakme.com, BBDowngrader / revirginizer, OK2Prep (yes, you can skip right to this step without restoring to 1.1.1 again after running BBDowngrader), update to 1.1.3, jailbreak it, anySIM it.

      This process would take an additional 15 minutes max. So we're still under an hour. I think this is very good news.

      Thoughts? I'd love to hear some friendly responses.

      How do you figure? If it was that easy than why can't we do that to OTB 1.1.2? OTB 1.1.3 will most definitely also have a baseband that is similar to 1.1.2 which cannot be unlocked. Right now we can hope that the dev team's secpack theory will work

      NO ITS GONNA HAVE A DIFFERENT BASEBAND. WHEN THAT HAPPENS WE CAN RETRIEVE A SECPACK AND THEN ERASE THE LOCK FOR OTB 1.1.2 IPHONES THEN UNLOCK OUR OTB 1.1.2 OR MAYBE 1.1.3 IPHONES

      And The Dev Team Have Found Exploits On The Current Bootloader.

      The cost-benefit ratio of updating to 1.1.3 is far too high. Don't take good food out my mouth and replace it with sh*t, thank you very much. Break my unlocked phone? Destroy my chances of using decent 3rd party apps? For what exactly? Nothing that really makes this phone any better to use. 1.1.1 was a worthwhile update because it was more stable, and added 1 or 2 common sense features AND allowed us to add to the phone the things that Apple were too (ignorant/lazy/stupid/all three) to do. 1.1.3 does not excite me or many of you I'm afraid. So with much indignation, I'm going to say **** off Apple, eat sh*t.

      Edit: when I say "break my unlocked phone" I mean to say that by ruining current unlocks and render my phone features inoperable, you have broken it in my eyes. Pessimistic, yes.

An exploit in this bootloader has been found, but the secpack from 1.1.3 is required to use it. If 1.1.3 introduces a baseband update, the secpack can be extracted from that (if 1.1.3 does not introduce a baseband update, then we'll have to wait until one is introduced)."

      damn finally bring it on my otb 1.1.2 is itching to be used as more than just a touch
