Thread: iPhone Firmware 1.0.2 vs 1.1.1

    Exclamation iPhone Firmware 1.0.2 vs 1.1.1
    hi everybody!
    I have an 8gb iphone with v 1.0.2 firmware on it. It is unlocked and jailbroken, of course.
    Now, as I see my firmware is really kinda old, very buggy.. There are a lot of fixes in the Installer's sources, but most of them are for the 1.1.1 version!! I was googling but no luck, I couldn't find a page where I could read the differences between them, except the old posts when the 1.1.1 came out, and it wasn't hacked yet, when there was no 3rd party apps for it yet. what about now? wich version is still the most wanted? is it better to update, for me, or leave the 1.0.2?

    thanks!

    Default I second this request
    I am in the same boat. It's time I upgrade from 1.0.2 to get the benefits that are now coming out via Installer.

    I am having major issues finding a good source for the upgrade process including the virginizing steps I need to take to ensure I get a clean upgrade. Anyone who has updated from 1.0.2 to a more current version, could you please share the link to the tutorial you followed to get your update? I am confident that I can put 1.1.1 on my iPhone once it's back to factory, however, there are so many conflicting opinions on how to virginize that it's hard to decipher which is truly the best method.

    Thanks for the help everyone.

    Same here. I have 1.0.2 which is very old. It was hard to sim unlock and jailbreak for me. Am I going to have to re sim unlock in order to update to 1.1.1? Any help is greatly appreciated. A step by step guide would be very helpful

    P.S I'm on the phone typing this right now LOL

    lol. Well for 1.1.1 you:

    Use iDemocracy 2 (on the PC) to virginize the baseband: http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=1434
    or add the source: http://i.unlock.no and install The virginizer that way

    Update using this file (press Shift before you click Restore): http://www.modmyi.com/forums/downloa...o=file&id=1355

    Jailbreak by visiting www.jailbreakme.com on your iPhone, check http://www.modmyi.com/wiki/index.php...out_of_the_box

    Unlock the phone using this guide: http://modmyi.com/wiki/index.php/Unl...out_of_the_box

    Install OpenSSH, BSD Subsystem etc, and then activate iPhone using: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/downloa...do=file&id=708

    It is easy, provided you pay attention to what you're doing.

    Thank you for this information. This helps alot. However, the steps are a little confusing. I understand steps 1 and 2 - virginize and upgrade to 1.1.1. Will the phone be activated at this point? My assumption is not. Therefore you can't follow step 3 by "visiting" jailbreakme.com from the phone as the phone is not activated. I assume you meant to refer to the jailbreakme proccess in the thread.
    At this point the phone will be active / jailbreak and have AppSnapp.
    Then you should be able to follow step 4 to unlock with anySIM.
    After that, I don't know why you would need to do step 5. Isn't the phone now unlocked and activated on 1.1.1?

    I have unlocked 1.0.2 on 4 phones, so I would like to think I am not a complete noob. I don't mean to doubt someone who has done this before, but want to make sure I have the process down before doing the upgrade. THANKS!!

    I was in your position and bit the bullet a couple of weeks ago. The single biggest improvement for me was in reception. I get a significantly better signal with 1.1.1. The phone also seems much quicker than with 1.02 thought that could be my imagination.

    You do need to do step 5. The phone is jailbreaked, but not activated. They're two different things
