    Thanks to great finds by members, WE ARE NOW ABLE TO DOWNGRADE OUR PHONES!!!! I just wanted to make a simple guide for people with PC's to follow

    Start iTunes and plug in your 1.1.1 phone

    In 1.1.1, hold Power and Home buttons and count 10 seconds (your phone will turn off, just keep counting), release the power button but continue to hold the home button until your phone is recognized by iTunes. (phone screen will be blank)

    A message will pop up and ask you to restore your iPhone. Holding down the SHIFT key, click on the restore button. Navigate to your 1.0.2 software
    (http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite....8_Restore.ipsw)

    Begin restoring...

    When it's done, you will get an ERROR, click OK. Your phone should show a yellow triangle. Leave iTunes running and run AppTap.

    AppTap might encounter an error as well, however, it will bring your phone to the Activation screen. Once again, start iTunes, ignore all messages from it, and run AppTap. Now it will jailbreak your phone and install Installer. (You may have to retsart your PC after arriving at the activation screen if iTunes isn't recognizing your phone)

    Simply use iASign or whatever you use to bypass activation.

    Your phone is now back to 1.0.2.

    (I am using iTunes 7.4.3.1)

    WI-FI, calls, everything fully functional!

    Sorry I was more responsible and waited to avoid the flame suit and to avoid having members screwing up their phones more :);)

    Can I ask a silly question? What do you all think is the timefreme before apps like apptapp have broke this and have a version for 1.1.1?

    Just curious what the board thinks... I might not downgrade if we all think it could be only a week or two.

    Thanks.

    It looks like the new firmware is 128 bit AES encrypted, I wouldn't hold my breath on it getting "hacked" anytime soon.. not to say it can't be done, but it'll be extremely difficult..

    Hence why the touch users are boned. They should have bought the phone and skipped activation :D

    i am glad i have an iphone and not a touch. I was entranced by the touch when it came out but every time i play with one, i like it less and less. it doesnt have external volume controls and the headphone jack on the bottom bothers me!

    yay for the iphone!!!

    I stopped at *Simply use iASign* and just let iTunes restore my data and synced up my music and video again. Now I'm back at 1.0.2 and have my 3rd party apps back. Awesome.
