The iSlate Will Be Announced In

October 16, 2007

The Time Has Come

If you've made your iPhone better than everyone elses with delicious hacks, you've probably been wondering, when, if ever you were going to upgrade to firmware 1.1.1... Well, today would be a good day. Three hackers who work out of a Toyota mini-van that constantly circles the city of Columbus, Ohio have released a helper app with instructions for adding 3rd party software onto an iPhone with firmware 1.1.1. It's called Independence which is quite apropos.

Before you upgrade, we suggest downloading all of your pictures and restoring your iPhone to firmware 1.0.2, also make sure you have the latest version of iTunes before you upgrade to firmware 1.1.1. Then, and only then, you will be ready for Independence.

And remember, do this stuff at your own risk, Apple is playing hardball, and when the hardballs hit, they hit... well... hard.

If your phone is unlocked (which is different than simply hacked) or it is bricked, Independece is not for you. There are things that can help you, but they are hidden in an underground vault in Coopertino.
