    Could this be it? The infamous iOS 4.1 update?! You bet it is! Now available through Apple's Developer Center, iOS 4.1 Beta is available for download. This is news we have all been anticipating for some time now, but the question here is, what exactly are we getting in iOS 4.1? Will our antenna issues be solved, or will they simply be "masked"?

    The releases notes don't go into detail about any fixes, however they do state that support for the iOS 4 preview version of Game Center will be phased out soon. There is some discussion about renaming some files, and some string changes, but nothing extremely interesting.

    UPDATE: Reports of users experiencing no change in signal quality for those that have been having the "death grip" problem.

    UPDATE: It appears that the iOS 4.1 update includes the signal bar changes that Apple had promised that "will adjust how signal strength bars are calculated and displayed." This includes making the bars larger than they were before so it's easier to identify the signal strength

    The change will adopt a recently recommended formula from AT&T that will more accurately display actual signal strength at any given time. The update will also increase the size of the smaller bars (1, 2, and 3) to make them easier to see.
    As expected, the modem firmware has also now been updated to 02.07.01. This means: JAILBREAKERS AND UNLOCKERS NEED TO STAY AWAY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! Remember all that hard work planetbeing just showed us? Do yourself a favor and do not update yet, so that you too may utilize the unlock method he has found in the future.

    What might be particularly exciting to most of our readers, is that this release, once public, could mean that our next Jailbreak Tool will be unleashed upon us all. However, I wouldn't get too excited yet, this is just the SDK Beta. Once this baby goes public, keep your eyes peeled for an iOS 4.0 Jailbreak. So that means, REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR SHSH BLOBS!

    Still happy with my 3GS and 3.1.3. Nothing in 4.0/1 worth upgrading to. Maybe that whole text catalog thing. But that's not enough to get me to upgrade.

    Why release a beta version to devs?? If it's just to fix a few bugs, then why not just drop it on us like they did when they snuck up on everyone with 3.1.3?

    So they can jerk us around a bit longer. Or maybe to see if the Dev Team releases the jailbreak now because the same exploit is still available in the beta... That way they can patch it before the public release. Same cat & mouse BS!
    Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!

    The people over at Apple aren't particularly fond of Windows, so my guess is no.

    Interesting. I wonder if there still will be a 4.0.1 in between.

    This could be a way to stall the JB also. Release 4.0.1 within a few days, after already announcing 4.1 via beta/dev previews.

    Thus, it forces the dev team to decide now to wait until 4.1 is released, which could be a month or even more away.

    So I'm assuming they will release 4.0.1 prior to 4.1? correct? I just want this crap to work, hell even my Facetime does not initiate correctly.

    I am new to SHSH blobs as I just went from an iPhone 3G, to an iPhone 4. I obviously have not jailbroken my new iPhone 4, but do I need to back up my blobs before apple releases the 4.1 to the public? Or is that something I only need to worry about AFTER jailbreaking? Thanks in advance!

    No point in the Dev team releasing a jailbreak for 4.0.1 knowing that 4.1 is on the way
