    I got a carrier update file today from O2.

    Anyone tried it and does it break the jailbreak or is it just a file that changes the APN settings ?

    Carrier file update

    Just seen this pop up in my iTunes.

    As I have the tethering hack, would this potentially break it?

    Yes, that is the update to FW 3.0.1 and it potentially breaks the tethering hack, but I still have my JB, MMS and Tethering in place....

    Yes, if it's like most of the hacks I've seen, it would.

    I already had 3.0.1 installed and not plugged in since the update. I think this is different

    Did we get an update to the carrier settings from upgrading to OS 3.0.1? I haven't had my iPhone attached to my computer/Tunes for several days. However, I've noticed some flakey stuff with my connection (no sim card, jumping back and forth between wifi and EDGE).

    Could this be the famous mms support carrier file? I'm at work and can't plug my phone in. Are you on AT&T?

    O2 over here has been terrible at the moment. I'm not sure if it's just APN settings or blocks aswell.

    I've since found 2 others posts talking about this. It seems it's O2 only :confused:

    Yeah, that might be the update for your carrier file as you mentioned. My carrier file is AT&T 5.0, so I haven't seen an update to my carrier file yet. I wouldn't update my carrier file, if by chance it eliminates the tethering and MMS capability. And yes, it seems to be O2 people right?...:eek::eek::eek:

    Yeah, it's because he's on O2. Nothing here once I checked my iPhone on iTunes.

    Agreed. 3.0.1 is an OS update not a carrier update.

    Yes, I know this. What I was pointing out was SFStateStudent suggested it was the update to 3.0.1 which it isn't.

    @ SFStateStudent

    My current Carrier file is O2 4.0

    Hmm... I might get my sister to update hers and compare.

    Why does my Carrier version say ATT 4.0? Should I get it to 5.0? How/why?

    Because you live in the U.S. Your carrier file is 4.0. If you do a hack to get MMS/Tethering then you'll have a different one. Just wait.

    Congrats OP, everything is making sense to me NOW....:p:p:p

    AT&T carrier 5.0 was available via the benm hack of several weeks ago, so it might be difficult to find it and get the MMS and Tethering working at this point...:eek::eek::eek:

    Don't take it to heart, it's nearly 1 AM here so s/he's probably tired.
