We have some information for those of you who often use your iPhone 4 for ‘other’ activities, as the iPhone Dev Team have warned against updating to Apple’s forthcoming iPhone iOS 4.1 update – due to land shortly.
As reported from Pocket-Lint, the Dev Team have identified Apple’s iPhone iOS 4.1 update as a ‘trap’ and strongly advise everyone not to update, unless they want to lose all jailbreak and unlock features.
Here is a portion of the statement from their website: ”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! There’s currently no known way to revert your baseband – if you update your baseband you’ll lose the ultrasn0w unlock, possible forever.”
Furthermore, they advise iPhone owners to hold on, until a solution is released, which probably won’t be long given the speed of their previous projects.
For those of you who don’t touch jailbreaking, your decision is simple. But for those who have got used to the likes of Cydia and other apps – what do you do?
