Apple Releases Firmware Update 1.1.4 for iPod and iPhone

Recently, I synced my iPhone with iTunes and will provide updates as they happen.

At 1:30 PM, I began downloading the software. For those interested in direct downloads, here are the links for the iPhone and iPod. Please notify me if there are any issues with these links.

This time, I’m using my iPod touch for the update. I learned my lesson after a previous update severely malfunctioned my iPhone.

The sacrifices I make for TUAW!

Assistance Needed: If anyone is part of ADC, could you check if the SDK is available? Much appreciated!

A reader inquired, “What changes will 1.1.4 bring? Will it support unlocking or jailbreaking?” My advice is to hold off on upgrading if your device is unlocked until developers have assessed the new landscape. Typically, jailbreak capabilities are lost with updates.

Those who have successfully upgraded without issues likely have better internet connections than mine. I’m still waiting.

The release notes only mention “Bug Fixes.” As “FunkeeMonk” commented, “wow, such a descriptive release.” If you notice your device is faster post-update, it’s probably because the installation cleared out residual files from previous modifications.

My frustration with Mindspring, my ISP, is growing as the download progresses slowly. Currently, at 40 MB out of 165.5 MB.

Exciting news: ZiPhone seems to work with 1.1.4! Nate True reportedly confirmed this, though I’m waiting for more confirmations.

Exchange Support! It appears to be just IMAP settings, nothing specific to Exchange.

A TUAW reader named kab mentioned after speaking with Zibri, “Ziphone will jailbreak 1.1.4 but it SHOULD NOT activate it.”

Progress update: 124.5 MB of 165.5 MB downloaded.

The download is complete.

My computer is now responding without delay, and I’m starting the installation process.

An unknown error occurred (error 6). I’m using iPhuc to troubleshoot and have successfully booted the device.

According to TUAW reader Dave Taylor, “Plugins are enabled in Safari Settings,” though others claim this isn’t a new feature.

I’ve successfully jailbroken under 1.1.4. Let me know if there’s anything specific you’d like to explore or know more about. I’ll be examining the frameworks primarily.

No significant changes in the frameworks from 1.1.3 to 1.1.4, even the file sizes are nearly identical.
