    Default Iphone firmware 2.2.1 released


    Apple has just released iPhone firmware 2.2.1 (5H11A) through iTunes.

    The firmware update contains minor bug fixes and improvements such as improved stability of Safari and a fix for an issue where some images saved from Mail do not display correctly in the Camera Roll.

    The release notes lists minor bug fixes and improvements in iPhone firmware 2.2.1. They are mentioned below:

    • Improved general stability of Safari
    • Fixed issue where some images saved from Mail do not display correctly in the Camera Roll

    Its good to see that it includes improved stability of Safari, so hopefully it should reduce the iPhone Safari crashes further though iPhone firmware 2.2 had reduced it to some extent.

    However, it looks like there was another reason for releasing the latest firmware. The Dev Team who had warned against updating to the latest firmware has confirmed that iPhone firmware 2.2.1 breaks the "injection hole" that they had used in their application
    yellowsn0w to modify the firmware which had helped to successfully unlock iPhone 3G.

    MuscleNerd, a member of the iPhone Dev Team who had released World's Software method to unlock iPhone 3G on 1st Jan 2009 had this to say over Twitter:

    for *jailbreak* purposes 2.2.1 is fine for all including ipt2g. But it BREAKS the yellowsn0w soft *unlock* for iPhone 3G
    it's not surprising that they fixed injection hole for yellowsn0w, it is surprising to see a "silent" update
    the iPhone 2G baseband is untouched .. I *think* they've stopped all development of it last update for it was 8 months ago

    He has also broadcasted a video on Qik to explain what it means if you upgrade to iPhone firmware 2.2.1.
    , iPhone firmware 2.2.1 also updates the modem/baseband firmware from 02.28.00 to 02.30.03 thus breaking the software method to unlock iPhone 3G
