    Default [1.1.3 HINT] Prevent iPhone from Updating

    I don't know if this is the right forum, but here's a hint:

    if you enter this into the Terminal.app (Mac OS X Utility), iTunes can't update to 1.1.3:

    chmod 400 ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone\ Software\ Updates/

    if you want to go back to normale state use this command:

    chmod 755 ~/Library/iTunes/iPhone\ Software\ Updates/

    this is not the same as unchecking the option in iTunes to "check automatically for updates" - as this just let's iTunes check itself for an update, but not the iPhone - it's something totally different!

    almost the same... there's just one difference:
    sometimes iTunes checks for an update and installs it in the background - and this hint even prevents yourself from accidentally updating/restoring ;D

    Sorry
    But i do believe anyone capable of doing the suggested, are aware of when to say no or yes when Apples tells you there is an update, or just go into the itunes preferences and choose not to check automatically for updates.

    But hey, it's interesting to know.

    By the way:
    "sometimes iTunes checks for an update and installs it in the background "
    I dont think Apple would do that! think about the consequences it could lead to!

    download the 1.1.2 firmwarefile at iunlock.no
    in itunes DONT press update, but ALT+update (MAC) / SHIFT+update (PC)
    itunes will prompt a filechooser, choose the 1.1.2 firmware file and there you go.
    dont forget to install oktoprep before updating, if you wanna jailbreak 1.1.2 later on
    iPhone US W46 OTB 1.1.2
    -> fully restored to 1.1.3 with iTunes
    -> fully unlocked to carrier blau.de with ZiPhone

    Yeah...
    I've done this on january 14th, just to be save on the "after-keynote" situation.
    And on january 15th, maybe 1 or 2 hours after the keynote, I checked it out.
    I only started Itunes, no iphone or ipod was connected to my computer, just started Itunes an left it as it was.
    And after 20 min...
    A Popup-window was telling me that there is a new version of itunes an asked me if I want to upload...CANCEL!

    Remember, the update-box in preferences was unchecked, and still is....

    On what firmware? I don't have this ~/Library/iTunes folder on my phone.
    iPhone 3GS / 3.1.2 JB (PwnageTool) / 04.26.08 carrier-locked, Carrier Logo Fixer / Cydia / 1000 posts on Hackint0sh

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    This is a command for the Terminal.app in Mac OS X!
