    Default Enhance iPhone 1.1.2 with next new firmware 1.1.3 features

    I know some expert may already know how to do it. But, I just write it so everyone can enjoy the iPhone 1.1.3 new features, when 1.1.3 is still not yet officially released but only with leaked pictures. Click here for full pictured guide.


    Please support me. I really need you guys support to encourage me to write more iPhone tips.

    ---
    You should probably know about iPhone next firmware 1.1.3 new feature from the news. I think most of all will not upgrade to 1.1.3 even it is available because this firmware update probably bricks unlocked iPhone 1.1.2. Here is a short tutorial to show you how to enhance existing iPhone 1.1.2 with next firmware's features.

    More...

    Note you must know how to jailbreak iPhone and use Installer.app. If you are not, you may wish to take a look of the iPhone ultimate guide page.

    1. Enhance the SMS function with iSMS

    The iPhone's SMS function is weak, even sending SMS to multiple people is not allowed. From the Installer, you can install iSMS tool. The iSMS is from China and enhance the SMS function of iPhone. You can send the SMS to multiple people easily by tapping "+" button. You can also forward the SMS to multiple people through iSMS. iSMS also comes with search function. A must tool for every iPhone user.

    2. GPS function with Navizon

    From iPhone 1.1.3, Google Map comes with Locate Me feature which shows where you are right now. Navizon uses a similar technology which detects your location using nearby cellular or Wi-Fi signal station. You need to create an account on Safari after you install it from Installer.app.

    3. Add web apps to home screen with Web 2.0 site

    In iPhone 1.1.3, you can bookmark your favourite website to main home screen. You can actually do the same in iPhone 1.1.2. Access iPhone Apper from desktop PC, than input the necessary information including favourite site's URL, custom icon and the bookmark title. You can now push the "App Me" button to generate a program.

    Upload the program to iPhone's "/Application" folder and restart your iPhone. You will see the favourite URL on screen now. It works just like iPhone 1.1.3.

    4. Re-arrange icons with Customize

    You may probably put some web apps on the home screen or installed a lot of programs. To re-arrange according to your preference, you can use Customize. Install Customize from Installer.app's Utilities. Customize is a very complete customization tool for every parts of iPhone. You can change the carrier logo, bars image, edge icon, airplane icon and so much more. To re-arrange the icon, click "Icon Display Order", and choose "Manual Reorder" to re-order like iPhone 1.1.3.

    Thanks for that overview

    Another approach: extract SMS.app and Maps.app from 1.1.3 firmware and try running it on 1.1.2 firmware - would be nice as well though. Navizon depends on user-mapped areas, which do not exist where I live, so why should I buy it for $20 when I afterwards have to map my whole area myself, after which I wouldn't need a navigation system anymore... Depends on the official support for various countries of course.
    Guess that approach depends on these applications dependencies on other parts of the update; shouldn't be a problem with the SMS app, but celltower location sounds like it could be tied deeper into the system.

    I only hope 1.1.3 can be cracked before its official release:p

    I'd really love to see new Google Maps natively... I wonder if 1.1.3 were jailbroken by at least one person, would it be possible to just copy the new Maps app...?
