Apple Preparing iOS Update to Fix Australian Alarm Bug
Apple is said to be preparing an iOS update to correct a problem with the clock app’s alarm function. So far, this bug has only affected iPhone users running iOS 4 from New South Wales, the ACT, Victoria, Tasmania and Southern Australia. The problem occurs during daylight savings time when the alarm is set to a recurring mode.
iPhone users have reported their alarms going off an hour earlier than expected and creating new alarms does not correct the problem. Users have been compensation by setting alarms to go off an hour earlier than they normally would. Currently, this is the only way to get a recurring alarm to go off as expected. Alternatively, users can deactivate recurring alarms and just set one alarm to go off instead.
Usually, the clock is one app that gets little attention because it always seems to work flawlessly. According to ZDNet, an Apple forum user had this to say:
"What really annoys me is that, judging from these forums, Apple must have known about the problem before daylight savings started in Australia, but chose not to let users know"
Apple is said to be preparing a software update to iOS 4.1 that will fix this problem. It’s not yet clear what will be included with this update, but one thing is certain, the jailbreak community will be watching this release closely. Hopefully this will be another bug fix and not have an impact on jailbreak development.
Many iPhone users are patiently waiting for a Mac version of the limera1n jailbreak. With so many setbacks and delays, users may want to wait and see what surprises, if any, arrive with the next iOS update.

watch some dumbass update to that firmware and blame dev-team for not being able to jailbreak their device, and funny thing is they have been warned.

It's a shame that Apple will probably use this quick fix release to patch Comex's untethered userland exploit that he gave to make GeoHot's tethered bootrom exploit work. I hope Comex has a few more of these userland exploits up his sleeve.

so that's what it is... No wonder my phones alarm always goes off earlier then what it is. I live in the U.S.> Cali.>L.A.
and I've been having this issue with my iPhones alarm always going off earlier then it's suppose to. Buts it's only with one alarm setting outta the 7that I have so hopefully they'll fix it without message with the JB if not I'll delete it. I don't mind sleeping in a few more minutes before getting up for work.

Go to the app store download a free alarm clock or buy one. Problem solve! No updated needed. Not the end of the world, wait until 2012."You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not"

This seems to have happened to everyone on network time codes. Not 100% sure this is just isolated to the iPhone. There is a known bug within network time zone codes pushed from certain carriers. As the code is rewritten each time a country moves DST around, anomalies have crept in. Has anyone checked to see if the international time codes have a bug in them?
