    3.0.1 is just an update to fix the SMS vulnerability. So I really don't care about updating my firmware to fix such a minor thing.

    3.0's been fine for me, I'll update when 3.1 rolls around officially.

    I don't really care that much for jailbreaking anymore, so I went ahead with the update.

    Well, here's someone who we can use that SMS exploit on.

    yeah, but the beauty of 3.01 is that it creates what one might call "herd immunity." In medicine, that basically means that enough people are immunized against a disease, it can't really spread, so even if you personally are not immune, you're largely protected anyway. Here, if enough people upgrade to 3.01, nobody would bother to try this exploit anymore (The analogy isn't perfect, but it like the term :)). So I think those who like 3.0 can stick with it, confident that they will not fall victim to the SMS exploit.

    I didn't update because I just didn't bother connecting my iPhone to my computer yet. It's only for SMS Vulnerability, so yeah.

    I like the way you're thinking. I have not updated because I've seen some people having issues. I am going to update today most likely. I like to wait for the storm to pass and see how the dust settles. The same reason why I have not bought the 3GS yet.

    Exactly, same here. I've heard different reports on the 3.0.1 firmware update, and if all it is doing is updating the SMS vulnerability fix for me, that's not really a big deal.

    Pretty much the same story. Heard some things I didn't like about 3.0.1 and figured I was pretty safe anyway with everyone else being protected and am waiting out 3.1 if that's even worth upgrading to.

    Why would I not want to update to 3.01 since its closing a security vulnerability.

    I guess it's a world of pain to update if you jailbroke at 3.0...

    Actually it is super easy. I upgraded to 3.01, then jailbroke with Redsn0w and didn't have to reinstall my media or apps at all. All in all it took about 10 minutes to do both.

    The only problem I have been having is with app icons changing to the wrong ones but that is a 3.0 issue and has nothing to do with the upgrade.

    I'm waiting for 3.1 too.

    If I wait for 3.1....does that mean I'll still install what 3.0.1 offers?

    I haven't upgraded but its more because I can't download such a large file : / I really wish Apple would make these as patches rather then having to download the entire OS again.

    Any time any update comes out people report 'issues'. With every single update that Apple has ever done we have seen people on these forums complaining that their phone is slower, battery life worse, phone got bricked, etc.

    Updates snowball as the versions numbers get higher, so 3.1 should hopefully contain 3.0.1.

    Am I the only one who's ready for the people who didn't update to 3.0.1 to get their phone hacked so we can see a billion topics about it? :eek:

    Doesn't really apply because other phones are also vulnerable and those phones can be used to spread the attack.

    That's the explanation I got.

    I am waiting for 3.1 and then I plan on jailbreaking. My theory is that there probably wont be a major upgrade after 3.1 for a while so I would rather wait for that before going through the effort of jailbreaking (yes I will be a first time jailbreaker)

    + 1 - I upgraded right away, and haven't noticed any problems, phone seems to act exactly the same as with 3.0. And not upgrading because you're jailbroken - jailbreak is available for 3.0.1, so why not protect yourself?

    The hacker sends it directly to the vulnerable phone. If one was to infect someone who isn't immune directly then it wouldn't matter if most people were immune, because the disease would be directly introduced to them...

    Really has nothing to do with this. It's not like the SMS exploit is a virus/worm that hops from one iPhone to the next.
