  • 1.1.1 Released


    Firmware 1.1.1 was released today. Features include:

    iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store
    Louder speakerphone and receiver volume
    Home Button double-click shortcut to phone favorites or music controls
    Space bar double-tap shortcut to intelligently insert period and space
    Mail attachments are viewable in portrait and landscape
    Stocks and cities in Stocks and Weather can be re-ordered
    Apple Bluetooth Headset battery status in the Status Bar
    Support for TV Out
    Preference to turn off EDGE/GPRS when roaming internationally
    New Passcode lock time intervals
    Adjustable alert volume

    If you are the owner of an unlocked iPhone, DO NOT UPDATE until we have a viable solution for either relocking and then unlocking after the update, or doing the update without bricking your iPhone. Updating an unlocked iPhone currently WILL BRICK your iPhone.

    The Basics:
    • If you have an unlocked phone, but are using AT&T, updating will NOT brick your iPhone, but you will have to get a new SIM card, as the iPhone will display an incorrect SIM message.
    • If you have an unlocked iPhone, and are running a carrier OTHER than AT&T, updating will NOT brick your iPhone, but it WILL relock your iPhone, and no existing methods will unlock again, so DON'T UPDATE YET.
    • If you have an iPhone LOCKED TO AT&T still, updating your iPhone will work fine. If you have installed 3rd party apps, they will be gone, and no existing methods will reinstall them.
    • No, the developers of the software modding apps have NOT updated their apps within the past 2 hours. When they do you will be notified with a new News story.

      Exactly. They would sell more if they wouldn't try so hard to stop third party apps.

      This is stupid. The unlock is not causing damage - The update is. Apple simply found a way to indentify moded iphones and is retaliating.

      It is unbeleivable Apple would treat is constumers like this. All we are trying to do is get better coverage and add functionality to our iphones!
      OMG...I thought you were serious at first! Thanks for the great comic relief, this thread really needed it.

You don't have to update...
      Ok, so can i go ahead and do the old unlock method posted here without a problem and activate with 1.0.2?? i cant wait to use my iphone... ill then will stay at 1.0.2 until 1.1.1 is clear... give it a GO then?? hope yes, cant wait.

      PS: sims arent working but i asume this is only for 1.1.1 right now?

      Thx so much.

      I guess those who jumped ship like me can only hope the Dev team come up with something.

      My Iphone was ibricked, but not unlocked; the AT&T sim card has never been removed. I am getting an invalid sim error ... restoring (with and without sim installed) does not work.... anyone have a solution to this error. I am very aware the update will take me back to the standard apps....but right now, it won't work at all.

      Well, if you plan on using ibrickr then you may be stuck. I brickr requires the firmware to be on the computer. Itunes had to download it for me for ibrickr to work at all...But the only firmware itunes is downloading right now is the 1.1.1...I think you can replace the firmware itunes is downloading with the 1.0.2 firmware which is avaible for download on here. Then ibrickr would work and everything should be fine. Do you know what firmware you have on your phone right now?

      Things I've noticed on my Dad updated 1.1.1 that isn't listed in the update:

      -Percent icon on stocks menu is now centered.
      -New Yahoo images under the menu for weather and stocks. (Though its new on my un-updated one, probably a linked image)

      does anyone know if a failed ibrickr attempt, or using iringtoner will cause the invalid sim error

      Anyone done this yet and can offer more info?

      Yeah new phones are going to have to wait.

      Give it a week and then see where it goes. For now your locked to AT&T with no apps.

      Because everyone whines (including my self a little bit) for new updates.

      I never said this was GOOD that mods don't work, and I haven't updated yet. But it's nice to see Apple working on something...
