If you’re an iPhone user you will have realised by now that a new software / firmware update: 1.1.4 for your iPhone has been released. The upgrade itself can be done directly via iTunes or via a direct single setup file which we provided a link to in one of our posts last week. However one of the main problem faced by most users if you update / upgrade was that your previously jailbroken iPhone no matter what version, presumably 1.1.3, would be bricked or locked once again. After about a week since release, we thought we’d catch up with what the latest option was for jailbreaking the 1.1.4, and after testing it ourselves, we felt choosing the ZiPhone tool would be the easiest and simplest to use.

ZiPhone 2.5 – a new release of the tool that can jailbreak and unlock iPhones through a graphical interface under both Mac OS X and Windows, has been released in an iPhone 1.1.4 compatible edition. This means that any iPhone with any firmware version including those that will be shipped with 1.1.4 out-of-the-box (OTB) can be jailbroken and unlocked. Users who have older firmware versions such as 1.1.3, 1.1.2, etc… and wish to use the utility should perform a “restore and update” process in iTunes to bring their iPhones to version 1.1.4 – remembering to backup any data or work on your device first though!

Here are two screenshots you might find useful…

Well this came as a surprise, didn’t expect 1.1.4 to be released so quickly as 1.1.3 has only been released for over a month’s time – before you begin reading this post, you must know if you update your iPhone to firmware 1.1.4 now without backing up there is a big chance that you will loose your data especially applications if your iPhone has been 1.1.3 jailbroken.

Apple has released iPhone firmware / software 1.1.4 update, which is now available via iTunes as you may be aware you can also downloaded as a 165 MB standalone setup file. In Apple’s release notes, it states that the main reason for releasing the 1.1.4 update was mainly for ‘bug fixes’, however we are aware that if your iPhone has been 1.1.3 jailbroken and is running any unofficial third party applications – this firmware update will definitely disable all of it and also erase any of your previous jailbreak. Although there are rumours that the 1.1.4 can still be jailbroken, at the moment, we feel quite skeptical about this and would prefer to wait a few days unless you were experiencing major problems with your existing 1.1.3 and would like to see if any major improvements turn up with 1.1.4.
