    Apple just released firmware 1.0.1. So far reported benefits are increased volume, and no safari crashes while listening to music. The official change log is merely "bug fixes."
    Within a month of release....very nice. Hopefully a sign of things to come (regular updates).

    Like I said, with no carriers in the way and delivery via iTunes, this is exactly what you would expect them to do.

    Any less would be unacceptable.

    The Treo has been updated twice: MSFP + the recent Verizon ROM update (plus a hardware upgrade to 700wx). That's not great but not bad for a WM device.

    lol, as if they don't get enough praise, they have to have mine too?

    Look, I always said the deal they got with AT&T (full distribution rights, no branding, no carrier software, no carrier approval, direct access to updates, etc.) is highly envious and kudos to Apple for getting all of that from AT&T.

    The current design of the carrier/OEM relationship for every other OEM though is nothing like what Apple has. Trust me, the Apple way is the preferred route by a long shot. I'm just dubious carriers will surrender to other OEMs. Pure shame. Carriers should be ISPs and nothing more.

    The only glimmer of hope is Sprint and Wimax which is going to be an "open" system...that may finally change things for the better. Till then, you have Apple & AT&T.

    (I do question though that this fixes "bugs" as opposed to security issues...so far it just seems to be latter, but we'll see as more info comes out)

    Oh I know, but I was using it in the generic differentiation: crashes vs. security ("bugs" vs "exploits"), etc. But right, techncially they are all bugs.

    Others are reporting that MobileSafari is more stable though...so they seemed to have done more than just security fixes.

    Interesting.

    But confusing: so it seems to be either iPhone or iPod production that is being cut? Off the cuff, it would seem they would cut back on iPod production (especially with new rumored versions coming out soon).

    Eh, as much as I'd like to gloat all of this seems quite speculatory and could have multiple explanations...

    well, i'm sure i'll be in the minority once again but i'm happy to report that the firmware update just took one button press and an entire minute or so to complete. the earpiece speaker volume is noticeably louder and i'm pleased.

    Amazingly the update worked like a charm on my iPhone. Contrast this to many of Treo 700P users and their recent update experience.

    i had just jumped off of a call with a friend in new york who wasn't as clear and loud as a call i received after the update. there were two differences and perhaps causing the difference: one person was out on the city streets and the other in their home. regardless, the volume of the voice on the second call seemed much more loud than i'm used to hearing on most any other call. wishful thinking perhaps.

    Update: the volume increase is disputed.
    Update: on security issues, apple posted this: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=306173

    Thanks for the info on iFuntastic.... after I'm done with my second restore I'll take it for a test spin.

    After my restore the first time:

    My phone was like a new phone. The restore did not bring back any data except for what was already on my mac.

    SMS gone
    Email accounts gone
    All custom settings gone

    Anyone else have this happen?

    After accepting that this is ONLY a security update, I thought I'd check out the only security update I personally found unnerving:
    http://www.figma.com/dialerbug/

    NOPE, NOT FIXED YET. Whoops.

    I'm glad however, they they nixed a number of the cross-site scripting attack issues however. The dialerbug is still a bit disturbing if not high-priority.

    Other than that, for what its worth, I think Safari does feel much more stable, but I'm guessing Apple won't "own up" to stability issues. I'm going to keep all my tabs full and see if I can "crash" it again tonight. Having no "luck".

    This is interesting though. Apple knows how many DISTINCT and INDIVIDUAL iPhone customers they have piling onto iTunes and getting updates. This first security update would be an excellent way to see how "ACTIVE" their customers are in getting iPhone updates. A great story to share with potential partners if the "update rate" is high. My guess, the percentage of quick updaters will be higher than any other phone on the market, everytime they do it.

    Also, tremendous WARNING SHOT across the bow of modders. In order to update, you'll need to RESTORE. How totally and completely sucky. Now I'm *completely* not interested in any mods. AT ALL. (Though honestly, nothing was compelling much anyways).

    jailbreak still works after the update.

    There is a slight problem though.

    Originally when pressing and holding Home and Sleep, you would have to release them before jailbreak would go to "sending more files", the program seems to automatically start sending the files once the Exclamation Point screen comes up on the phone. If you do not release the buttons fast enough the jailbreak will fail and tell you that
    "Problem with Ditto: 6

    Sorry, apparently things just didn't work out.
    Look on the bright side, if jail was that good for Paris maybe you should give it a second chance."

    So this time as soon as I saw the Exclamation Point screen I released the buttons right away and everything works now

    Just a little FYI.

    First bad news...

    Safari still crashes. It took more surfing to make it happen than usual but it still happened. I was listening to music in the background and the music didn't stop playing...so I guess that's good - although that rarely happened.

    I hope in some way, my Safari crash was due to a unique condition that they didn't test yet because if it keeps crashing in the next few days, I may have to switch back to my BB Pearl until the next release.

    I was so excited and now...not so much

    So this did not happen then?

    "Management expressed excitement at plans to increase iPhone value over time via new software features, citing 'the sky is the limit' for iPhone software," analyst Mike Abramsky told clients in a research note Tuesday. "An iPhone update patch is expected shortly."

    Abramsky speculated that upcoming iPhone software updates would include new widgets, peer-to-peer applications (chat, picture messaging, social networking), location-based services, MMS support, home networking, and possibly some integration with Mac OS X Leopard.

    exactly - they should have done SOMETHING. Even if it was just one feature instead of the whole collection that has been rumored. Give hope to those holding out. This is why I went back to my backup-phone, and just bought a Nokia N80 tonight - Apple really is disappointing with this secrecy.
