iPhone Update 1.1.1

Apple released their long-promised 1.1.1 update to the iPhone, and it looks like the update is "all clear" for anyone that has not hacked their iPhone. They also posted another training video to go with the update, starring the same fellow from Apple's earlier training videos (see here, here, and a creepy but funny mashup here).

I received an email from Wireless Imports in which they advise unlockers wait to apply the update:

We have just received confirmation that it is NOT safe for anyone to update their iPhones software at this time. If you do upgrade the software you will have your phone relocked back to AT&T and there is nothing currently we will be able to do to assist in re-unlocking your phone.

At this time we do not know if you will be able to use your AT&T sim card with the phone even though it is locked back to AT&T.

Again we ask that you DO NOT upgrade to the new software under any circumstance.

We will send you another email when we have more information on this matter.

If you unlocked via AnySIM or the terminal unlock methods, it's probably also not a good idea to update the iPhone. If you've unlocked your iPhone, it is probably best to wait to apply this update.

Unsurprisingly, if you've hacked your iPhone, Apple has broken 3rd party applications and re-locks iPhones that were previously unlocked. Applications that were installed on the iPhone remain on the iPhone, although there isn't a way to launch those applications until hackers jailbreak the iPhone again.

<

p> Unfortunately, Apple's language in the patch update indicates their willingness to dump the warranty on anyone that's unlocked their iPhone and thereby saw it bricked with this update. If you hack your iPhone in the future, you will want to get used to waiting a few days or more past an update to see how the update could affect you. Let someone else be the hero.
