Engadget reports that a new iPhone milestone has been reached. iPhone firmware 1.1.1 has been hacked. The amazing iPhone Dev Team have managed to Jailbreak the new iPhone 1.1.1 firmware update.
According to the report third party applications are now working but most will need to be recompiled due to the new frameworks.
Springboard won't recognize DisplayOrder.plist (included apps now seem to be hard-coded into the Springboard app), you can activate the phone with third-party workarounds, and the Mobile Terminal and BSD suite work, as well as ARM-compiled command-line utilities.
Of particular interest: firmware 1.1.1 references both Nike and a radio.
TUAW adds that it's not easy getting third-party iPhone apps to show up properly on the home screen. Apparently Apple has added extra protections to SpringBoard and created a list of approved identifiers. Despite all that iPhone hacker asap18 has ported several applications to iPhone 1.1.1. The other limitation is that only 15 icons can be added to iPhone 1.1.1 – Apple appears to have reserved the last spot for the iTunes WiFi Store.
I'm still happy with iPhone firmware 1.0.2 with AppTapp, SummerBoard and Customize, thank you very much.
