    Hokays, am I missing something in the upgrade to 1.1.2?

    I have an 8gigga iPhone, and went into iTunes to up to 1.1.2, or at least see if it would DL for me, and I could upgrade whenever the jailbreak becomes live... However, upon clicking on "check for update," I am told that my 1.1.1 is up to date.

    Today's the 10th, the upgrade came out on the 9th, right?

    Am I supposed to manually download and dump something into iTunes? Am I missing something?! I included a screeny.

    I'm in the same boat, itunes insisting that 1.1.1 is the latest. Personally I'd rather wait for iTunes to recognize there's an update, though at the same time I'm mildly irked about the TIFF exploit not being patched on my iPhone yet via "legit" firmware.

    You have to download the update manually from MacRumors or TUAW. I downloaded from MacRumors, saved the ZIP file to my desktop. Went to iTunes (I have a MAC), I put my mouse over "check for update" and did a Alt/Option then mouse click. It will ask for the location of the zip file. I poined to the ZIP file and it updated my phone. No issues. For Windows, I believe you do the same thing, but do a CTRL and mouse click.

    No issues with the version, my ringtones from iToner are still there.

    (not directing this response to you in a negative way)

    Why should I have to download the update manually? Call me lazy (I will be this one time), why the heck should I have to do all the work? Isn't that iTunes' job?

    Is it not an "official release" yet by Apple? Is that why the manual DL & location specification is necessary?
