    Arrow Recovery Mode Restore if new Firmware is released?

    I was just thinking..I get my iPhone on Friday.

    I am going to be following one of the guides. At the start of the guide it says if you have firmware version 1.0.2 you can skip to step 2 otherwise follow these steps. And those steps are, run the iPhone in recovery mode and click restore.

    My concern is what happens if the new firmware is released either tomorrow or on Friday V1.1.1 and then running in recovery mode will automatically update the latest firmware rather than just updating V1.0.2.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for this?

    Thanks,

    DeanCorp

    You can download version 1.0.2 and tell iTunes to restore from file

    new fw is due end of the month. So u are ok i guess. I was wondering the same thing, thou someone told me if u hold SHIFT and press restore, it allows you to pick the file to restore with, so that might be the solution!

    The real question is whether iTunes will LET you restore to 1.0.2 even if you do have 1.1.1 firmware on your device. The baseband might have been changed, the buffer-overflow unlock (or something) might be plugged, etc.

    Maybe 1.1.1 is trained to REJECT a previous update. That's the worry my friend.

    Instead of working yourselves all up about the impending firmware upgrade and speculating about whether or not the BB will be flashed and whether or not you're going to lose access forever to the OS via SSH, iTunes or the like, I think that the best thing to do would be to wait and see what happens.

    I'm not sure that Apple's major concern at this time is to patch the "crack", rather, it's to ensure that 1) they correct outstanding bugs that were found in 1.02 (Calendar sync issues, SMS issues, etc..) and, 2) to ensure that their product is ready for the European marketplace. This is Apple's primary objectives.

    What's more, there would be lots of bad press for Apple if their firmware upgrade managed to crash over 1m+ phones because they had tried in single (major) release to 1) fix all bugs, 2) internationalise the iphone and 3) patch the crack. IMHO, the patching of the crack or the attempt thereof, will come way after the Leopardisation of the iPhone and not before.

    If Apple doesn't take matters in hand right now and put an end to the crack in their next release, I would expect that this will happen sometime in January/Feb since 1) the existence of crack will allow them to make a bundle for Christmas (despite the fact that they lose out on the kickback from At&T et al.) and sell more iPhones than normal and 2) no bad press regarding OS instability will dampen their Xmas iPhone sales.

    Assuming that their is a firmware upgrade that arrives, you should not install it until such time as you have a firm understanding of what the firmware upgrade will do to your phone. The people here will tell you if all is clear. Trust me.

    Due to the release in UK and Germany on the 9. november 2007, the firmware update to v1.1.1 will have to be released just before the 9.th november.

    just my 2 cents...

    My thoughts are ....... the firmware has already been wrote, it's already ready to be loaded onto new phones which will be shipping shortly, therefore they've addressed the updates needed in 1.1.1 sms etc

    So why not release it, we know they have it from some demo phones for the UK release .....

    Well my thoughts on it are that they are making final amendments to it to relock phones, why else would they not release it unless they want to add something different to it

    ATTENTION!!!!!
    I have tryied to force Itunes to downgrad from firmware 1.02 to 1.0.
    It start but give an error before the end of the process. I have try more than once.
    But to downgrad from 1.02 to 1.01, it work very well.
    It seems that apple is not so stupid and not allow to downgrad from major firmware to other major firmware. It will probably the same from 1.1 to 1.02.
