- iPhone v1.1.3 firmware update will completely kill any and all third-party applications! If you’ve gotten attached to your Installer.app applications, you might want to wait until some sort of jailbreak-preparation has been released - like the Oktoprep installation that allowed jailbroken v1.1.1 iPhones to be updated to v1.1.2.
- You can just wait for Apple to release the iPhone SDK in February and officially sanctioned third-party apps hit the market.
