Thread: Simple Question

    Default Simple Question
    Call me a n00b but I have a dumb question.
    I recently got an iphone as payment for recording a band. My question is that it has 3rd party applications on it. But it is not completely hacked. Just 3rd party apps. I am running 1.0.2 If I upgrade to 1.1.3 will my phone still work? I don't care about losing the 3rd party apps. Do I need to do anything special or can I just do a regular upgrade?

    NOOB ALERT!!!!!!
    Just kidding

    Is it AT&T? If so, yes your phone will work just fine (you need to setup through itunes). If not, then it will not work and you should not update because you won't be able to downgrade the baseband (so you will not be able to use your non AT&T sim card). you are correct in that you will lose your third party apps currently on 1.1.3 no matter what carrier you have.

    Also keep in mind man that if you do want to install third party apps yourself, do not upgrade to 1.1.3. Still as of today there is no method to jailbreak (allow third party apps) the 1.1.3 firmware. But hey, if you don't care about third party app support go ahead!

    Otherwise, you can easily upgrade to 1.1.1 to hack it first (jailbreak) then install 1.1.2.
