  • 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.

      SO in that case are apple breaking the law, by changing the IMEI on users handsets? If they are, UK allows for a 5 year prison term for commiting this offense.

      I need to check my EULA, but I thought it said that the iPhone was completely open source and free for anyone to do anything they wish. Furthermore, if something bad happened, Apple would gladly replace the iPhone with a new one (not refurb) and issue the poor soul a free $100 gift certificate.

      Seriously, my favorite question is "when will the developers release the update?" (as if they are sitting on it waiting to see if anyone is interested)

      The IMEI reported by the software doesn't necessarily have to reflect the actual IMEI. They simply could have entered the XXXXXXX0000 IMEI as a flag/error message. The actual IMEI would probably have to be verified by an external means before we talk about sending anyone to prison.

      In Europe it is a criminal offense to alter, or change the IMEI of a portable telecommunication device. I'm not sure what the status is in the US, but if apple attempt a similar trick once the official UK release occurs in early November 07, they surely are committing an offense every time they alter a IMEI of a handset?

      Could be tricky for them.
      Um, isn't that what the unlockers do? change the IMEI? Wouldn't that imply that the people who UNLOCK are the ones doing the criminal offense?

      help me out. I know the difference between a jailbreak and unlocking. I used ibrickr to jailbreak. Added some 3rd party apps, installer, etc. Also, i installed PXL using ibrickr but did NOT install any application to crack the SIM.

      So if i were to restore my phone to factory and then update to the latest iphone update, my phone will not brick, correct? All that happens is a lose all of my mods and 3rd party apps..?

      Thanks in advanced for the clarification!

      No. They just remove the SIM lock. That is not illegal at all.

      You will be fine, and you will not be able to install any more mods, and all your 3rd party apps will be lost. This is detailed in the first post of this 50 page thread.

      unlocked the phone.

      There is nothing more that can be ever learned from this thread from anyone.

      Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
