    I just got another one on Tuesday, and had to update to 1.0.2

    So either 1.0 or 1.0.1

    Not a big deal to update. Itunes does it when you connect. Just say ok.

    Yes, but I will have to unlock the phone because I live in Canada. If the new firmware comes out before I get the phone next Tuesday, then I'm screwed...

    You're not. Just press the alt-key when clicking on restore. But you might want to keep a copy of the 1.0.2. .ipsw file in case Apple deletes it.

    There are sources on the net where you can get the older firmware versions.

    Usually found on sites with info on unlocking.

    What does the alt key do when I'm restoring the phone? Thanks! :)

    Someone in another thread said that I won't be able to install the current firmware once this newest firmware is launched... :confused::confused::confused:

    You can select the firmware you want to install, as long as it's a newer version than already installed (no downgrades). I only read about it, didn't test it.

    Do you have the link where you read about it?

    From what you remember would it work like this: I'd have to press alt when the phone is retstoring and then select the folder with the 1.0.2 firmware in it? I've downloaded the 1.0.2 firmware from the iPhone Unlock Wiki page in preparation.

    Thanks for your help. :)

    I read it in a German blog.
    I meant: Hold the alt key when pushing the restore button.

    Okay, so if I hold the alt key when I restore it should let me choose my firmware?
