  • 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.

      Yeah I just bought a generic cable from radioshack for my ipod video. The video is sent through the red though not the yellow.

      My summerboard decided to get all effed up randomly about an hour ago so I'm just going to take the plunge and upgrade the firmware. No more ringtones how will I live!?

      I'll let you know if the video out is through the headphone jack.

Can someone help to answer this question?
      Thank you so much!
      Apple does NOT force you to update to 1.1.1, however if you do.. you're stuck with it. Hope that answers everything for ya.

      cool, please do let me know if the generic cable works. i just didn't know if it would fit in there since the hole is so small (or even if the TV output comes out of there rather than the dock connector).

      i want to pick up a cable so i can make use of the TV output feature... i just need to know which cable to get.

      I read through all this thread and didn't see anyone mention that you could still bypass the activation using the existing software to do this. I have two iPhones one unlocked and the other just did the activation thing and my wife uses that one. My question we just use the iPhone's for music, video, email, and the camera. If we upgraded to the new firmware would I be able to use the software that is out there to bypass the AT&T activation or not. Thanks.

      I don't get it. All it says it that it disabled unlocked phones, but only gets rid of the jailbreak hack for 3rd party software. Okay, then why are some AT&T locked phones with 3rd party software receiving the Sim error? Why are some totally unmodified phones getting the same error? I think there's a bug somewhere in the update.

      “Apple has discovered that many of the unauthorized iPhone unlocking programs available on the Internet cause irreparable damage to the iPhone’s software, which will likely result in the modified iPhone becoming permanently inoperable when a future Apple-supplied iPhone software update is installed,”

      I have a seriously hard time with that statement... Software doing hardware damage. How about it makes good use of the hardware that we supplied good money for.

      I am seriously disliking how Apple has decided to punish the early adopters instead of letting things be. I know I killed my Warranty but its my phone let me do with it what I want.

      Apple you knew this was going to happen. You knew people were going to write programs with a phone that has OSX on it!

      Do the right thing and let people be. Develop software to detect the hacked phones and send us packing. Disabling people just makes them mad!

      Come on Apple do the right thing.

      I was modded... update erased all my mods but did not restore so that was nice.

      It appears that the video is not sent through the headphone jack. Looks like 30-pin connector it is.
