  • New Apple Update for iPhone - v1.0.2
    Apple released the new 1.0.2 update today. It's not yet known what impact this will have on existing mods...but it is a full update, with a huge 91.2mb download for the full restore. I will post any learnings...



    The update requires agreement to a new Terms of Service (TOS) as well as a brief description of what it does. I will upload the TOS word doc to MMi in case anyone is interested in the legal ramifications of the upgrade...

      What I want to know is if anyone put their phone back in "jail" and tried the update? It'd be neat if that worked.

      my understanding was that itunes would not talk very well with a non-jailbreaked phone. I'm sure everyone has connected a phone that had not been put back in jail to itunes - it shows up as a 300mb phone with "other" data in it. i'm not clear as to what would happen if someone attempted to restore one of those...i would be worried. In short...i attempted the update with a jailed phone with the same result.

      it almost feels like we are paying an extra penalty at every update for our hacks...oh well...if this is as bad as it gets...we're in good shape

      It finally got restored and updated, but it took about an hour to choke through all that and then re-sync my data back onto the phone.
      Note, all of my photos and sms (text) messages were gone. Thankfully my photos were almost all safe in Aperture, but I miss my sms conversations. WTF? Why are these not saved along with the rest of the data, Apple?! FFS!
      Now, time to reinstall the things that make this phone funner and better.

      I totally spaced it yesterday...but I had it on my jump drive so I submitted it to the downloads section just now. Sorry for not posting it yesterday.

      I'm betting that the folks that have not re-jailed their phones before attempting the update. Personally, I don't even like connecting my phone to itunes when it's unlocked. it gives me that "uh-oh" feeling, like the feeling i would have if i were giving a speech on stage and realized that my fly was down

      I did the update but know when I go into iFuntastic I cant edit anything (icon.png, or springboards) using the browser...??? It Jailbreaks the phone fine and I can still edit the ringtones and carier logo just not anything in the browser.... Has anyone else had this problem?

      i did jail the phone before installing the update and still had to restore the phone.

      i was able to redo some mods within minutes except for using iFuntastic which cannot jailbreak the phone

      sorry, but this intrigued me... how do you jail the phone again (without a full recovery)?

      PCH, same here. Update failed with an error, threw me into recovery mode, then restore failed. Tried several more times. Thought I brickd it. Took it to the Apple store. Made an appt. for tonight. Came back to the office and tried again. Finally restored and syncing now.

      Sigh, the price we pay for being on the bleeding edge.

      Hey all,

      First - Thanks to ALL of you who have enabled me to have the ringtones i want and COLOR icons in the FSO (top bar/homescreen) - white is quite boring. I also have a few of the strings in springboard.strings customized.

      So my question: If the phone is jailed (i always re-jail it after modding) and I run the update, is it going to wipe my FSO icons and custom strings? There are no APPS installed, so what exactly determines whether restore is required vs update?

      I have been using Ifuntastic 2.5.0 to jailbreak and add ringtones, and the terminal to swap image files on the phone once jailbroken (have not found away to upload TRANSPARENT BACKGROUND images with iFuntastic, thus my use of the terminal for that image changing task).

      I really could use a LOUDER SPEAKERPHONE, so that is tempting, but I have all my custome strings and images working very nicely now and looking sharp, so I would hate to have to redo all that.

      Thanks for any info you all might have on this. I am assuming even the simple update will wipe my custom sliders, FSO images, and springboard strings, but hoping I am wrong.

      my phone was jailbroken as well.

      I restored first, then it automatically downloaded and installed the updated version of software.

      Then it asked if I wanted to restore the backup. I clicked yes.

      Restored my phone, rebooted, notes there, contacts there, favorites there.

      It erased my email passwords--put them back in.

      It even told me the phone was activated.

      But everytime I try to use EDGE (Safari, YouTube, Email) it gives me the following error message: "Could not activate EDGE. You are not subscribed to EDGE."

      It worked fine before. . .any ideas?

      well, well, well. I called Apple Care, they had me cycle Airplane Mode, then power cycle the phone. Then they told me to call AT&T at their special number directly to iPhone Support (877-777-4192), which was not a valid number.

      I then called AT&T myself, after a few things (same as before) they xfer me to Apple Care. Then not long after the Apple Care guy xfer me to AT&T but stayed on the phone with me.

      They took my data plan off then added it back. . .still didn't work. Hung up with them and the Apple Care guy said the following:
      There's only 4 things that can be wrong with this problem:
      1. The Data Plan/EDGE Provisions aren't set correctly (they were)
      2. The EDGE Service is out in my area (according to AT&T, it isn't)
      3. Bad SIM Card
      4. The antenna in my phone that picks up EDGE & Wi-fi not working.

      It still makes/receives calls and sends/receives texts fine. (I did not know there was a separate antenna for EDGE/Wi-fi!)

      Sooooo, I have to get a new SIM Card from AT&T and activate. If it still doesn't work he will make an appointment for me @ the Apple Store to turn it in for repairs while getting a FREE loaner.

      Nice guy, even sent me an email w/ his contact info.

      Kinda strange that RIGHT before I updated the software (I'm talking about seconds before) it was working fine then all of a sudden. . .poof!

      I can't seem to get iActivator to work now that I have updated to 1.02.

      You did, right?

      When I try to run iActivator, I can't get it to read the new 1.02

      I downloaded the .ipsw file but when I run iActivator and it asks for the location of the download -- it pops up a message

      "Invalid Directory
      Specified path does not contain firmware files. Try again."

      Can you provide any help?

      thanks

      There is no true backup for the iphone, only what the iTunes based backup does. So all the hacks/mods you did, you will have to redo them manually, sorry thats how its going to be everytime Apple puts out a new firmware since jailbreak breaks the validation of it.

      You can still sync your iPhone to iTunes without doing the update, you DONT HAVE to udate the phone, just hit the dont ask me again and hit cancel when the update message appears it will not ask you again until you manually as for check for update.

      Back running again.
      I ended up pointing to the 1.01 firmware folder, instead of the 1.02 folder -- that got be Activated again.
