If your using an ATT sim you could upgrade using itunes.If you unlocked it, you would have to virginize the phone first.

If it's not unlocked you can just use SHIFT+click RESTORE to restore to 1.1.1 (Restore erases old programs, that's why I'd use restore and not upgrade)
How I did it (unlocked 1.0.2 to 1.1.1)
1: Install BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH via installer.
2: See what your wifi ip is and remember it.
3: Ok, install WinSCP on your computer.
4: Open WinSCP, host-name= IP, Username= root, Password= dottie, protocol= SCP, druk nu op Login.
Will take a while don't abort
5: Connection, yay!
6: Use the left screen (local computer) to find Virginizer_Pack, navigate on the phone to usr/bin and drag the virginizer_pack to the /usr/bin folder in het right menu.
Will be a pop-up, click "More"click on permissions and set to 0755. now press "Copy"
7: close WinSCP, and open Putty
8: Hostname = ip-adres, click Open
9: type: root <enter>
type now: dottie <enter>
11: Surf to http://code.google.com/p/iphone-elit...irginizingTool
Follow the guide from "Change to the working directory" untill the END!
12: All done ok = virginized iPhone.
13: Download firmware File 1.1.1 Go to iTunes and take out your sim. Press <shift> when clicking RESTORE. When prompted navigate to your feshly downloaded 1.1.1
14: All done ok = virgin UNactivated iphone.
15: OpenCARNAVAL and open file "(click here)" Follow steps in program, it's really clear on what to do
16: All done ok= activated 1.1.1 iphone!
17: CARNAVAL installed Installer. Install the update, and install BSD SubSystem and OpenSSH.
18: Open WinSCP make connection like before. new password= alpine
19: drag "Anysim.app" to "Applications" folder on iPhone. 0755 CHMOD!! Restart iphone with sim in it
20: Open Anysim and run.
21: when Anysim is done, you can remove Anysim.app with winscp
22: all doneiPhone 8GB (updated to 1.1.1)
