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.
They did something with the new build. I did a full restore last night and this is what I have so far.
I attached a screen shot showing the new build # also Attachment 12553 Attachment 12554
that looks good !! Pjr, i'm just curious, when you did the restore to get the build406 from iTunes, did you also use your recent back to restore to the phone as well or did you set up as new?
right now i'm on the 405, currently i have usage: 1h 10m with 15h 0m standby and i'm at 85%. this is why idk if i want to restore to get the latest 406, because i'm getting pretty good battery life on 405 right now
