I have done the open SSH to my phone. I have ATT, and have not 'unlocked it'.
Can I safely get the new firmware update, and worst case scenario is i lose SMB, and the various apps and games I have installed? (namely NES, since i had to add the ROMs/NES folder).
Or can I just wait, until a new apptapp is released to work with the new firmware?

Everyone should take a chill pill and and concentrate on the facts, apple has not said they are going to brick your phone on purpose, they are just making you aware that it could possibly happen.
Also I dont think that installing a theme on your phone voids the warranty, this is tottaly wrong info at least for me it was.
I went to the Apple store te other day to get a new iMac and I decided to return my wifes "modded" phone because of a dead pixal and the light from the lcd was leaking a bit through the top near the speaker. When we started driving there we realized that we had forgotten to reset the phone to factory defaults, I decided to just go and see what would happen. Turns out the Apple employee didnt blink twice about here Tinkerbell theme and went ahead with the exchange. He pulled out what appeared to be a refurbished unlocked unit and took her sim out and put hers in and emidiately started working.
We didnt really care if it was refurbished I mean its basically a new phone, so I got my new iMac and she got her self a new iphone.
So I dont know if this was an error or oversite on the employees but he clearly saw the bright tinkerbell theme.
I think apple has learned from there previous errors "dropping the price" and are not going to want another iphone national news uprising again.
Great jobs on the part of the devs for keeping the iphone as interesting as possible.Mono_frio

"Is there a way i can update my Iphone to 1.0.2? even when the 1.1.1 updates are released?"
I am also curious about this question - anyone knows how to update it to 1.0.2? Is it possible to restore the iphone without it asking to check for firmware update?

Deal is that 1st of all Apple has no right to render hardware inoperable, I purchased the hardware and software and therefore own a limited license to it (DMCA). 2nd, I would imagine it to be extremely difficult to completely brick an iPhone by doing ANYTHING with software - some chips are not writable/erasable - those that are can be restored - everything on flash can be restored easily anyways. It'll be just a matter of time after the so-called apple-bricked phones are back up and running.

And Jailbreaking MUST be re-writen to break the 1.1.1 firmware.
OR im left without my NES =(

Hackers are usually ahead of the game... I'd like to know if there's any legal way of fighting phone locking in general? As far as I know phones can be unlocked, but the unlock may not be shared according to DMCA. Can a lawyer or person with knowledge on the subject please give us some insight?
I believe just sitting here sucking at Apple's teat with petitions is the wrong way to go. Class-action lawsuits have won more often than not against Apple. Let's start one - I don't like being ****** around with - I buy a product - I have the damn right to use it for whatever I want - and if I throw it off a bridge - my deal - just my two cents...

Hi, is it for sure that iTunes doesn´t force me to update?
greetings from Austria where my broken iPhones is working perfectly!

It will PopUp with "New Updates available" and give u a Choice wheater to install or not.
Most people are betting that disfunctional Iphones can be re-flashed to work again.
But i wouldn't take any chances in updating just yet.

Oh, fine! Let´s hope that normal syncing will be also possible without updating....... I´m wondering how long it will take to "mend" this upcoming problem in our cat & mouse game. A "technician" told me that this one will take a little longer, since the current SIM unlock is based on a buffer overrun which will be closed with the new firmware update.

Thats gonna suck. Especially for me. Im getting my iphone on Monday and i was planning on unlocking it.
How am i supposed to update the Iphone to 1.0.2 with itunes now!!?
But in answer to your question: I'd say about 48 hours. lol.
Most likely hackers will attack the new updates.
Probably re-releasing the updates so it doesn't affect the unlocking process and doesn't turn it to a brick!
I hope they release a new workaround as soon as it comes out.
Cross your fingers and HOPE apple is hacked and its firmware is leaked.
