iPhone firmware 1.1.1 released; breaks everything (Updated)

Today Apple released iPhone firmware version 1.1.1 via iTunes and it appears to be pretty nasty toward unlocked and otherwise hacked iPhones. According to Gizmodo and Engadget the update re-locks unlocked phones and renders the brilliant AppTapp installer and other third-party applications useless.

Features of the 1.1.1 update include:

• iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store • Louder speakerphone and receiver volume • Home Button double-click shortcut to phone favorites of music controls • Space bar double-tap shortcut to intelligently insert period and space • Mail attachments are viewable in portrait and landscape • Stocks and cities in Stocks and Weather can be re-ordered • Apple Bluetooth Headset battery status in the Status Bar • Support for TV Out • Preference to turn off EDGE/GPRS when roaming internationally • New Passcode lock time intervals • Adjustable alert volume

I'd rather have AppTapp installer over the iTunes WiFi Store any day. I'm going to stick with firmware v.1.0.2, thanks.

Update: ArsTechnica has posted What does and doesn't work with iPhone 1.1.1 and is editing it on the fly with what does and doesn't work. As I mentioned above, I'm sticking to the sidelines until AppTapp installer is up and running on the new jive.
