    Angry chmod a-x does NOT prevent upgrade

    I had done chmod a-x /usr/libexec/software_update

    Nevertheless the phone was bricked during upgrade by an inexperienced user.

    (I did not check whether permissions were really set correctly but as I didn*t get an error I assumed they were set correctly)

    So beware when handing a modded iPhone to your girlfriends and grannies ...

    iTunes 7.3 considers 1.0.2 the newest iPhone firmware -- downgrade iTunes and they'll never have the opportunity to make the mistake.

    So any 7.3.x is what you are saying???

    So if I put 7.3.2 on a friends windozey pc then it should not allow an upgrade to 1.1.1 then?

    Put any version on your buddies PC and disable automatic update checks in Edit->Preferences->General Tab... Last check box.

    I'm using iTunes 7.3.0.5, which can be downloaded from here -- http://www.pqdvd.net/iphone-unlock-toolkit.html

    If I hit the "Check for update" button, it states that 1.0.2 is the newest version available. If I connect a virgin 1.0/1.0.1 phone, it asks me to update to 1.0.2. If I connect a virgin 1.1.1 phone, it asks me to upgrade to iTunes 7.4.

    iTunes 7.3.0.5 is largely idiot-proof.

    If the user hits "Restore," he/she will still inadvertently update to 1.1.1. Downgrade iTunes for 100% protection.

    So 7.3.05 can it still grab the 1.1.1 during a restore then?

    I wonder whether removing the directory /usr/libexec/software_update would prevent upgrades ?

    Perhaps someone can try to remove the directory on an already bricked but half re-virginized 1.02. phone and do again an upgrade to 1.1.1. ?

    The answer to that question is actually quite important since inexperienced users love to press plenty of itunes buttons especially if the keyword "new" is mentioned ...

    How about you experiment and post the results if you used the ipsf to unlock before you go to 1.1.1
