  • New U.K. iPhones come with firmware v1.1.2
    From Gizmodo.

    T3 got their hands on the new European iPhone, and to their delight (and dismay), the phone is pre-installed with firmware 1.1.2—which is newer than the 1.1.1 firmware we currently have in the states. Believe it or not, it's actually packing some new features. But before you ask, their early testing shows that current Jailbreak software is no longer functional. So that whole saga continues!

    The biggest standard consumer-oriented change is probably that the phone supports 12 languages out of the box, along with special keyboards for French and German languages (we guess that the other languages see a more limited level of support).

    There's also bundled free access to The Cloud Wi-Fi hotspots, which we've already seen in the European iPod Touch.

    And like we said, no more iPhone hacking for a little while. [t3]

    Thanks Apple, we just got things up and running again!

    Possible Fix for the Service SMS's (sMS's received from banks, and other opperators)

    When you first turn the phone on, you're greeted by an SMS message from o2, explaining how to get visual voicemail to work on your iPhone


    Rest of the images of the UK iPhone v1.1.2:


    As you can see in our unboxing video, all the bits and pieces are the same as with the US iPhone


    ... Despite the bigger box, it doesn't come with more goodies - just a bigger plug than the US iPhone.


    The UK box is slightly bigger than the US box, to allow for the bigger 3-prong UK plug.


    The UK iPhone comes complete with free The Cloud Wi-Fi coverage and the iTunes Wi-Fi music store

      You guys do know that you can just change a setting on 1.1.1 to get the international keyboard

      I updated to 1.1.1 and would NEVER go back.

      1. You can have custom ringtones and its extremely easy on 1.1.1, just convert any .wav file to ACC through itunes, then rename it to have a space at the end and put in m4r instead of m4a

      2. All the apps form 1.02 are on 1.1.1, and its exactly the same for uploading apps through installer

      3. The volume increase, the ipod function when using other apps, and the double space period are AWESOME reasons to upgrade

      4. ALl new software made will be made for 1.1.1

      5. having 1.02 is like wearing a mullet and listening to Ace of Base in the year 2000........LOL

      6. Theres no reason NOT to upgrade to 1.1.1 unless you jsut cant do it. Everything is the same with increased functionality. Only thing that doesnt is two or three themes, THATS IT

      7. ITS SO ******* EASY TO UPGRADE TO 1.1.1, ITS RIDICULOUS

      What does this mean? I ran the old Anysim to unlock to 1.02 but that was worse than using the IPSF version cuz that didnt ruin the baseband like anysim and iUnlocker did, but either way you had to revirginize the phone anyway unless you bought it 1.1.1.

      I followed the idiot proof guide to virginizing and used carnaval and anysim 1.1 and followed steps EXACTLY and worked easy.

      Trust me its not hard, anyone want help, i can follow them through, (youll be glad after that you updated!!!!!)

      Ibrickr Even Works Now For My 1.1.1......................

      Which Im Very Happy About Now!!!!

      How much does anyone want to bet that the itunes software update 7.5 only sync's with iphone 1.1.2? And that this way they have made more difficult for unlocking to happen!?!?!?!

      My be true but that does not concern us as we only upgrade itunes how often?? We dont need any of the updates that 1.1.2 has unless you have a 1.1.2 phone......

      I'd bet my house on the TIFF exploit not being the only thing changed to stop hacking. I'm not saying it won't be hackable, everything always is, but will need a new method.

      o2 in the UK have had months to monitor what happened with AT&T. They and Apple are not going to want the same thing to happen with the UK launch. I expect that o2 will make buyers sign up and complete the contract paperwork in store when they buy and they will have made sure Apple does its best to stop the phone being hackable as a backup.

      I knew this was coming as I posted last week!

      If you read the o2 and CPWH websites, it say activation is the same as in the States, via ITunes

      common, it have the same baseband firmware, so whats the problem, if you dont have an iphone, simple, you downgrade it to 1.0.2. install appinstaller, then downgrade baseband and unluck, i dont know why you guys are breaking the mind.

      Yes it is probably summerboard. I was having the same problem. I turned off wallpaper dim and now everything works great!

      itunes 7.5 might not let you use the option click and if you have a 1.1.2 phone and need 7.5 to even start activation then you're screwed!

      But thats a worse case scenario and probably wont happen!
