The iSlate Will Be Announced In

iPhone Update 1.0.2

Apple has posted another update for the iPhone which is available via iTunes. They descibe it as "bug fixes" and its only 4 Mbs so there's not much in there. Hopefully they've tweaked the iPod so it doesn't crash when using Safari and the iPod at the same time.

NOTE: Be sure to download any pictures you have on your iPhone before updating. If, for some reason, you are forced to do a full restore (which can happen when you update--especially if you have any hacker mojo going on) all the pictures on your iPhone will be erased. Bye-bye.

I hacked my iPhone and added ringtones with iFuntastic. I'll report back here as to what happens when I try to do this update.

Just as I suspected.. I had to do a complete reset.

First I downloaded all my photos, then I did a manual sync. If you have the sync option turned to manual, don't forget to sync before installing ANY software updates.

Then when I did the software install is gave me a quick warning (which you can't back out of at that point) and then proceeded to do a clean software install on the phone. I let it do it's thing and surfed the web for an old high school friend. 10 minutes later the iphone was again an iphone. Next I did another sync to get all my contacts and other info back.

No big deal.

Now I'm going to try that other software installer.
