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.
