    As a strong word of caution, I was happily running my hacked phone on 1.1.1.
    After reading many reports about the "easy" update to 1.1.2 using Octoprep
    (via Installer app), I installed Octoprep and updated to 1.1.2. When the iPhone
    rebooted, I was left with the stock springboard with the Installer app icon.
    Assuming I had to re-install everything, I noticed that they were shown as
    already installed. I tried uninstalling and re-installing, rebooting, ect - no luck.

    I downgraded to 1.1.1, iPhone remained in restore mode. Following the instructions
    to install and run INdependence (to boot out of DFU mode) it wouldn't work because I
    was running iTunes 7.5. I deleted iTunes and all associated files, and installed
    iTunes 7.4.2. However, I still got the message saying 7.5 was installed.
    (with both the current version and latest beta version of INdependence)
    Next, I ran the INdependence MobDev tool. Running the tool gets you to this screen:


    After extensive searching, I found a copy of this file hosted on Rapidshare. I downloaded
    the file, and tried to navigate to it, but the file does not highlight - it can't be selected.

    So far I have wasted the better part of two days trying to get my phone back
    to where it was with 1.1.1 with all of my apps, and am seriously regretting what
    has turned into a colossal, time-wasting nightmare.

    FWIW, I'm on a Macbook with Leopard 10.5.1 and iTunes 7.5

    Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated...
