1.1.2 Officially Released Last Night

1.1.2 Officially Released Last Night

Here I had thought that Apple released it on Friday, in conjunction with their european iPhone launch. No, they officially launched it Monday night, to little fanfare. Again, there isn't much to this update. It closes the TIFF vulnerability that allows people to easily hack their iPhones at jailbreakme.com, that's about it.

My understanding of feature updates is this: Apple has to dangle the carrot to make official firmwares more compelling than unofficial, hacked firmwares. Are iTunes charging icons and international keyboards going to cut it?

Google Reader Updated for iPhone. Looks Good, Tastes Great

Google Reader Updated for iPhone. Looks Good, Tastes Great

Google rolls out a new iPhone friendly revamp to its popular web based RSS reader. Users are now greeted with a cleaner, more logically designed interface that places key navigation icons on top, for greater accessibility. It still doesn't provide the collapsible tree view that I long for, but it does go a step further towards a better RSS experience. I approve.

Jailbreak for Firmware 1.1.2 Released. Restores Power to The People

Jailbreak for Firmware 1.1.2 Released. Restores Power to The People

The undaunted hacker community has once again foiled Apple's attempts to lock down its platform. Conceited Software (charming name) has released yet another Jailbreak script to free iPhone's latest and rather hidden firmware update; 1.1.2...which can best be described as a DDS upgrade, or Doesn't Do Shit. If you installed this firmware update, which I rarely advise these days, Apple being what it is...then reclaim your unauthorized apps.

Or Apple could simply stop breaking community software, right? Hello?

Round Robin: Windows Mobile Fond Farewell

Round Robin: Windows Mobile Fond Farewell

Of all the smartphones we test during the Smartphone Round Robin, the constraints of our phone exchange is felt most with the Windows Mobile 6 AT&T Tilt. One week is just not enough to get a full grasp on what Windows Mobile can do. If you've read some of my other reviews, you'll hopefully recognize that as a compliment-dig.

iPhone in Europe

iPhone in Europe

After a full weekend of the iPhone in Europe, how well has the iPhone been doing? Well, T-Mobile reported that they sold 10,000 iPhones on the first day. That's not too shabby; it's not an incredibly high number either, but it's not bad either.

New iPhone / iTunes Software Roundup

New iPhone / iTunes Software Roundup

So, iTunes 7.5 is out, along with iPhone firmware version 1.1.2. The new iTunes has been out almost a week, and the iPhone software has been available since Friday. How far along have hackers come?

Well, in iTunes 7.5, free ringtones are back. It turns out that you can do the old trick of renaming an AAC music file to turn it into a ringtone. To get it to work, take any 30 second m4a file in finder, rename the extension to be m4r, and drag it in to iTunes. Voila!

O2 Launch Imminent

O2 Launch Imminent

There's a big line at the mothership Regent Street Apple Store in London. The line started forming yesterday, and though there hasn't been torrents of rain pouring down on the line waiters like there was in Germany, it's been fairly cold -- about 45° F. Still, the mood is chipper, and everyone is looking forward to getting their iPhone, and they'll only have to wait about 2.5 hours before the official launch at 6:02 London time.

News from Deutschland


figure 1: Deutschland is the German word for Germany

Well, the iPhone has officially launched in Germany with T-Mobile, and with fanfare at that. Heise.de reports that there was a bunch of hooting and hollering, which reminds me of the Mall of America launch -- they did a good job of making people feel like they were part of something big. Even if it was just for waiting for the release of a smartphone in a collapsible chair for 11 hours.

iPhone Firmware 1.1.2 Out

iPhone Firmware 1.1.2 Out

Apple has released the 1.1.2 firmware for the iPhone out into the wild a little early, probably so that folks in Europe can download it directly when they get home. The 1.1.2 update weighs in at about 160MB, and it does update the baseband radio as well, bringing the radio software to 04.02.13_G (from 04.01.13_G in case you were wondering, and you probably weren't). You can download the update directly from Apple.

iPhone Vetoes Carrier Veto Power

iPhone Vetoes Carrier Veto Power


figure 1: It is with a heavy heart that Pogue informs us that the latest Windows Mobile phone from T-Mobile blows.

David Pogue has an excellent article on how the iPhone really broke down a bunch of barriers in the smartphone world, the best he claims, is "the way Apple took veto power away from the cellphone carriers."

So yeah, that's just the first sentence. The unfortunate part of the article is that most of the rest of it is a review for a T-Mobile Windows Mobile device. The good news is this: if you want to think about how awesome your iPhone is compared to a poorly-implemented Windows Mobile device, the second half of his article will really interest you. There's a silver lining in every cloud, right?

Enable Push Email on iPhone

Enable Push Email on iPhone

There's a neat way to enable push email on your iPhone so you can be notified of emails when they arrive, just like a BlackBerry. Push email has long been available with the IMAP idle command, though not many clients seem to support it. Getting the new push program on your iPhone requires that you jailbreak your phone, so if you need push email, you may want to hold of on tomorrow's firmware update. The software is still in beta but apparently still works as advertised.

Apple Confirms 1.1.2 Friday

Apple Confirms 1.1.2 Friday

Apple has confirmed to pocket-lint.co.uk that the next firmware update, version 1.1.2, will be available tomorrow. The update brings several internationally-themed updates like international keyboards. UK users also get access to free wi-fi via The Cloud.

This update will fix the TIFF vulnerability, meaning that users can browse a bit safer. However, the closing of this security vulnerability means that the extremely easy AppSnapp method of installing 3rd party apps found at jailbreakme.com will cease to work.
