iPhone Firmware

How can I downgrade my iPhone from firmware 1.1.1 to 1.0.2 or earlier?

Since Apple released iPhone firmware update 1.1.1, there has been a lot of griping and complaining about Apple "re-locking" the iPhone. Users with SIM unlocked iPhones have had their phones bricked, while those who installed third party enhancements and applications on their iPhone have had these applications rendered useless.

Thankfully, thanks to a user in the Hackint0sh forums, a method of downgrading your iPhone firmware (previously thought to be impossible) is now available.

iPhone v1.1.1 Firmware Update to Bring Video Out

There was some information drifting around last week which suggested that Apple had muffed and mentioned the existence of video out cables with an iPod connector at one end which were iPhone compatible. At the time, it wasn't all that exciting. After all, just because a particular cable is compatible with the iPhone from a hardware perspective doesn't mean that in the long run it is actually of any use.

In any event, it does seem that such a cable will be of use. We're not sure just how exciting this development is either, but it's definitely worth a mention. Okay, it's exciting enough - on with it.
