5.0.1 9A406 (new build number) is out for the iPhone 4S
I just read about this on modmyi.com and redmondpie.com. Did anyone install it yet? I am still on 5.0.

I have no notifications about a update but I heard of it too. I would think a update would come as 5.0.2 so I just wonder if its a beta since the build # is just one after the previous and they never took it any further. Curious to know more if anybody has any info on this.

Also I read here: Apple releases new build of iOS 5.0.1 for iPhone 4S | The Verge
That iOS hacker MuscleNerd recently tweeted an unusual observation about the update: it's the first official 4S firmware with an accessible encryption key for the main file system, meaning you can browse the file system from a PC unimpeded. Lots of folks are pointing out that this means users will be able to get at Siri's files without committing piracy, and that could lead to a field day for Siri hacks. There's no official word from Apple at this point on exactly what's changed.
As well as this: iPhone 4S displays 'No Service' or 'No SIM Card Installed' because it was updated for today and if you look at the bottom it mentions this new version of Ios 5.0.1.

Does this build HAVE to be installed manually or will it become available via iTunes or even as a direct download 'software update' from the iPhone 4s it's self?
edit: Since posting it has become obvious that you need to restore your iPhone to pull in the new build.
