    Default What's the benefit of 1.1.1 anyways?
    I went to an Apple store near me to check out the display phones that have 1.1.1 installed.

    Other than the iTunes downloader, what are the benefits of 1.1.1 over 1.0.2?

    I mean, it seems more of a hassle to upgrade/downgrade/virginize/voodoo dance your iPhone than it is to stay at 1.0.2 and enjoy the sweet 3rd party apps that have been developed.

    Any input?

    Im sticking with 1.0.2 until i can get everything working on 1.1.1. You do get a improved speaker volume, double tap on home to open up song controls, aside from that nothing i care about. I have iTunes on my computer, no need for another way to spend money.

    Yeah other than those two features mentioned above, there is no reason to upgrade. I'm gonna wait until apple updates to 1.2 and then when we catch up again with the mods I'll update.

    I'd really like the universal iPod controls as well as the double-tap and wifi store.

    But not enough to give up all my 1.0.2 goodness!

    You also get TV out. Not worth the $40 cable and hassle of not having all my 3rd Party apps, IMHO. I'm sticking with 1.0.2 as well.

    Almost every third-party app STILL works on 1.1.1... the only one that doesn't that I ever used in the first place is Sketches. SummerBoard also doesn't work at all.

    There are a few other features as well (Edge switch and such), but not much. Mainly it's the iTunes MobileStore, which I wasn't even excited about, but now I love... I haven't even downloaded anything from it, I just like to go and preview songs =)

    Anyway, the whole process of getting Installer.app on your 1.1.1 isn't too bad, but if your uncertain, just wait a week or so for a simple GUI method.

    Does the current jailbreak method only add the edge switch and mobile iTunes store and not these other benefits?

    SummerBoard now works with 1.1.1:

    If the NES app is confirmed as working, I may actually switch.

    FYI: SendSong isn't sending ring-tones in 1.1.1.

    Default Upgrading to 1.1.1
    I have a question- I know this may seem dumb. When you upgrade to 1.1.1 does it remove all 3rd party apps including installer app? I guess I am wondering what I should do and how. It appears 3rd party apps are working on 1.1.1 but I am confused how to get installer app on this version.

    Overall I have 1.0.2 - If I upgraded to 1.1.1 what happens to all my 3rd party programs INSTALLER APP ECT..? How do I reinstall them? Should I wait?

    Any help would be so cool- Thanks!!! =)

    Does anybody know if the universal controls work while the phone is locked?

    If so, then it might be worth upgrading... or I could just wait... Ill just wait, but Id still like to know if the ipod controls work while locked.
    All is... so Accept and Just Be

    Guys I said like pretty much EVERY thing works... NES yes it works... Installer, yes it works.. all the 1.1.1 features work. The guide just says something about those 2 that Ashley mentioned specifically.

    Look here for list of working apps in 1.1.1

    I have a question about if and when I do upgade to 1.1.1 with my 1.0.2 unlock iphone. If you have to virginize your iphone and re-unlock it, doesn't this reduce the number of unlocks that you are allowed on your iphone? I would think this would be a big problem since I did not think there is currently a way to reset the unlock counter?
