hmm....interesting. But seeing that I just got AppSnap to get installer on my 1.1.1 I'll stick with it for a while. Unless 1.1.2 has GPS, 3G, and MMS, oh and of course copy/paste :rolleyes:

1.1.2 seems to be a useless update :)
I can type all the chinese I want right now, with my unlocked 1.1.1

Apple cant force iPhone user to update. And its just a matter of time that 1.1.2 will be hacked..
Come on, there are like thousands or more hackers working on it. Thats thousands vs one...

...some gentle experimentation shows that the TIFF exploit (described over at MacNN) which could be used to jailbreak and hack the 1.1.1 iPhone has been closed, rendering the latest attempts to jailbreak the phone obsolete.
Awfully nice of those hacker fellows to tell everyone where the security gaps are.

iPhone Firmware 1.1.2 On The Way

https://www.macrumors.com/images/macrumorsthreadlogodarkd.png

T3.co.uk claims to have seen the a forthcoming update to the iPhone -- firmware version 1.1.2. According to T3:

First off, there's support for dozens of languages, so if you happen to be a fluent Cantonese speaker, the phone has all the relevant character sets so you can display your language properly.

There's full support for French and German, with special keyboard lay-outs on the ready to tackle accented characters - perfectly understandable, of course, what with the phone heading for launch across the channel this month too.
MacRumors had also independently heard that iPhone Firmware 1.1.2 is destined to arrive upon the European launch of the iPhone later this week. According to these sources, the release will be mainly bug and security related with some European language localizations, and will require yet-unreleased iTunes 7.5 to sync.

Our source also mentioned that 3rd party SIM unlock software will be once again broken as well as some 3rd party applications. iToner was specifically mentioned as being broken by the update, though readers should note that Ambrosia has released a free update for every firmware release thus-far.

Readers may remember that the iPhone 1.1.1 update disabled all native 3rd party applications and even "bricked" some iPhones that had undergone certain SIM unlocks, which lead to a somewhat rough public reaction and aftermath. Nevertheless, workarounds were discovered and methods have once again been developed to jailbreak the iPhone in one step.

unlocked/jailbroken iphone owners, heed this warning! Don't press that Update button any time soon! In fact it's probably a good idea to uncheck that "Automatically check for updates" box in your settings!

So the cat and mouse game continues...hope people don't take this round of escalations too harshly. As for me, I'm still taking a wait-and-see attitude to the whole iPhone thing...maybe I'll jump on the bandwagon at 2.0

Um, what's the purpose of this update? Other than making people who have customized their phone miserable?

Oh, so I can make my menus show up in Cantonese...! Way to go Apple!

How about concentrating on delivering some useful upgrades? Like horizontal email/message input, or mms, or that rumored Internet Radio?

This is a useful upgrade.. For people who aren't English speakers, which is.. Hell, more than half of the world?

Seems pretty important to me.

Great update if we get the international support. Anyone who does business with other countries knows how important it is to have international keyboard capability.

I dont know if they are talking about something different but you can enable the international keyboard on 1.1.1 by changing a value in a plist file. I have both English and Japanese keyboards working on mine right now :).

And of course, "breaking" apps really means closing security HOLES that those apps relied on.

So I say, break away. A SECURE way to install apps is coming soon enough.

All I want is flash. (ok, well maybe not all) that is my number one gripe. I remember good ol walt mosberg said it was coming shortly with a software update. But no dice so far.

Maybe they're already too late. Some HOLES at least the most prominent one can be patched by one of those apps themselves already...making you have a more SECURE phone than even the factory/virgin versions.

Still...better late than never eh

On another note, with the Tiff bug fixed i honestly have no incentive to upgrade whatsoever if all i'm getting is language and 'bug fixes'
