iPhone Dev-Team Warns Against Updating to iOS 4.1

iPhone Dev-Team Warns Against Updating to iOS 4.1

Posted September 8, 2010 at 9:50am by iClarified · 33711 views
The iPhone Dev-Team has issued a warning to remind users not to update to the new iOS 4.1 firmware that is expected today.

Today you’ll likely start seeing iTunes innocently offer you a new version of iOS…version 4.1. Don’t accept it…it’s a trap!

This time of year there are lots of new iPhone owners, and not everybody knows that accepting new iOS updates is the surest way to lose your jailbreak and/or unlock. While those of you who have Cydia or TinyUmbrella backups of your FW hashes will always be able to get back to 4.0.1 if you make this mistake, this doesn’t hold for unlockers. There’s currently no known way to revert your baseband — if you update your baseband you’ll lose the ultrasn0w unlock, possible forever.

it's been awhile since i've posted. no question, but a comment rather: ya know what, maybe a question. for those that have 3G and 3GS, is do you guys see any differeces in the upgrading? i have a 4 so i'm content w/ 4.0, although, i want that HDR feature. i'll wait for a 4.1, but i just don't see why people would update this if they want a jauilbreak/unlock.

This is the standard warning before *every* new firmware update. Unfortunately, the Dev Team needs to keep doing this because people have short memories. Even with the warnings, there will be thousands of panic-laden posts asking what to do after the dog accidentally hit the update button, along with the various confirmation buttons.
