  • 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.

I would be happy staying on the release I have and getting the apps from dev guys.

      AppTapp will not work with new update, not yet...
      (I miss LIGHTS OFF and BLACKJACK already)

      And the AAC (m4a to m4r) extension change to make ringtones no longer works on the iPhone, the songs will show up on your phone, but it won't play.

      Apple you suck!
      If Apple sucks so badly, go get another phone from another manufacturer. That's the beauty of an open market. You have choices. Bear in mind that you chose to purchase and iPhone and hack into it. I think you should consider yourself lucky that Apple bothered to warn you about the consequences of upgrading the firmware. They could have just let it be a free-for-all.

      Haven't seen any threads on un-documented features like:
      Ability to play .mp3 & .wav email attachments.
      Special characters when you hold down certain letters on the keyboard (like accented letters A, E , .... etc.

      Does anyone know of some others??

      Hey...There is an old iphone activation that may still work with 1.1.1. It faked an itunes activation and sent it down to the phone. Anyone tried it? its called iphoneunlocktoolkit.exe...I found it on google. Some people say it works... any one try this?

      because your on a site with a ton of apple fanboys. they will ***** and moan about this update and flame apple but will then turn around and praise apple again as soon as they can find a hack for the new firmware.

      Yeah i remember way back along time ago, (like a month) a guy unlocked activated his phone without internet or apple or at&t but the phone part didnt work, just wifi and ipod i think. Dunno if that will help anybody.

      Yes, but for the many people using old att sim cards, this should work. There are tons of people stuck with the activate iphone screen, with an old att sim. That way you still dont' sign up with new contract

      I'm not offended by his Apple bashing. I fully recognize that Apple is out to make a buck. That's why they're in business and that drives their actions. This is true of most corporations. I'm just pointing out that he has other options if he's so upset with Apple. WM6 smartphones are all over the place and they're plenty moddable. Nokia has some nice offerings, too. If he hates Apple so much, he should sell his iPhone and move on.

      At the end of the day we have to take the good with the bad. If we choose to sleep with Apple (and go against their wishes), then we'll get our 3rd party apps and unlocks but there's a possibility that we might miss out on future upgrades. We've made our beds. Nobody held a gun to our heads and told us to spend our money or jailbreak our phones.
