While I'm happy for the improvements made to Google Maps I'm not overly impressed with this update from Apple due to it yet again lacks features found in other smartphones. Such as the ability to edit documents, record video, digital zoom with timer for the camera, tethering, MMS, AD2P and copy/paste. Most of these features are available to only jailbroken iPhones and is reason why I'll continue to jailbreak unless Apple starts taking the smartphone market more serious by offering useful updates.

So if you are going to try to unlock at some point DO NOT upgrade. If you want to keep your jailbroken apps DO NOT upgrade. If you don't mind using your iPhone on its sanctioned cell provider (AT&T, Vodafone, etc.) and do not intend to unlock your 3G iPhone then you can proceed with the upgrade (it upgrades your baseband). I upgraded my Apple Unlocked 3G iPhone and its fully functional.
best of luck,

Anyone? Does the latest firmware or the latest itunes block cracked apps?
Edit Poseidon: If you ask about cracked apps again I'll start infacting you. We do not condone stealing software on this forum.

11-22-2008, 01:15 AM #157any updaters notice the "update all" button in appstore?
way better than having to wait through each app to download/install and then go back into appstore and repeat. way to finally step up to cydia's end-userability, Apple.

you know apple will probably wait until they have figured out a way to stop the jailbreaks on the iphone, then release copy and paste and mms....although it will probably be pay per use
11-22-2008, 07:21 AM #159
again wait for a few months and hope they will give copy and paste in the next firmware update
guess we'll have to wait for the next update and hope apple will give the copy/paste feature in the next update.
Why Apple just can't make it more simple.

I think apple knows that they can't stop the jailbreak problem until they solve the hardware that's making it jailbreakable ((so sez the dev team))
And wow, people are so funny with upgrading by "mistake", how do you do that when you have to go through a series of yes or no questions b4 finally starting the upgrade...
