Breaking news: new iPhone update released; relocks errant phones! September 28, 2007Posted by reverseengineer in Apple Inc., Hacks, iPhone, News, Updates & Patches.
The new iPhone Firmware 1.1.1 has been released, and reports are trickling in that it does disable third-party apps, and makes users undergo a second reactivation procedure that requires a genuine AT&T SIM chip. Lots of folk are getting “Incorrect SIM” errors. Ayayay! It looks like it’s back to the drawing board!
It’s a carrot-and-stick thing: the new features from the firmware update are tempting to get, but the price you have to pay is enormous. The only solution seems to be: don’t update then. Sit and wait. More news when we get it.
UPDATE: Detailed, updated, and dismaying testing reports on Gizmodo. * bites nails *
