    Default Force Specific Firmware Update

    If I get my hands on a iPhone shipped with 1.0.1, is there a way to upgrade to 1.0.2 after the 1.1.1 update comes out? I bought an iPhone off the Apple website and shipped it to a relative in the States two weeks ago and will be picking it up in a week or so...is there a way I would upgrade to 1.0.2 and make it not download the new 1.1.1 update? There are some people saying try Shift + Restore and iTunes will ask for a firmware file selection, but I tried that using an iPod nano, and there was no success...I'd appreciate any help.

    BTW, what are the chances that a phone that shipped mid-Sep had 1.0.2 pre-installed on it? Maybe I don't need to do all this at all...

    Thanks again!

    Misinformation! Try Alt/Option instead of Shift.
    I'm a lurker, damnit!

    hold down alt-button while clicking "Restore", works on mac ( i'm sure i did try this on two iphones). This lets you choose a firmware-file instead of letting iTunes download a firmware.
    Remember to have your firmware in a ZIP-archive, otherwise it will not work ...

    Default I haven't try this but...

    ... what about putting the firmware at C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates\iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw

    and offline (no connection to the internet) running iTunes?
