iPhone hackers bite Apple back, beat update

One of the numerous Apple iPhone hacking groups claims to have beaten the latest update from Apple, which rendered many iPhones useless.

The guys behind iPhoneSimFree have released an updated hack, which they claim now works with any versions of the iPhone firmware, including 1.0.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.1.1.

This means owners of hacked iPhones can now update to the latest version of the device firmware. Previously doing so would have turned the device into a brick.

In fact, the hackers claim that the latest version of their unlock software will also allow bricked iPhone owners to bring their devices back from the dead.

The unlocking tool will also allow users to install third party applications on the device natively.
