iPhone/iPod Firmware 2.0.1 released

August 5, 2008 Leave a comment

Available now through iTunes, the iPhone and iPod Touch 2.0.1 Firmware lists ‘bug fixes’ as its only improvement over the 2.0 initial release. Early reviews say the new firmware feels slightly more responsive. Upgrading a jailbroken iPhone or iPod Touch will at the very least remove access to the apps installed either manually or through Cydia. The new software is also reported to update the iPhone 3G baseband, which makes things more complicated for those waiting for a 3G unlock.

I’ve only recently got access again to my favourite iPod ebook reader, textReader, so I’m not willing to upgrade and lose it again. Hopefully the iPhone Dev Team will have their PwnageTool updated soon to cope with 2.0.1.
