Apple releases iOS 4.1 update Apple has released the updated iOS 4.1 software today for iPhone and iPod touch owners.
The company unveiled the update, along with a new Apple TV, revamped iPods and iTunes 10 last week at their September media event.

With 4.1 comes HDR photography support, 'Game Center,' HD video uploads and TV show rentals.

Furthermore, the update will fix bugs and other issues from the original 4.1 release. iPhone 3G owners should be ecstatic as 4.1 should eliminate the excessive slowdown caused by the OS.

The update will work on the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 and all iPod touch models after the first generation. All 4.1 features will be compatible with the latest iPhones and iTouches, but older models will not get all the new features.

iOS 4.1 is about 590 MB for those who may have slower Internet connections.

We need a way to lock folders natively with the iOS.

Just updated my 3G to 4.1. I could immediately tell a difference in the speed. The phone is overall more responsive. Safari seems to run faster as well as the Google apps. One specific app, the ESPN ScoreCenter, used to take about 10 seconds to open now it loads in about 3.

Too bad iOS 4.1 breaks your jailbreak. And if you need an unlock, that's not the worst news: even if you have SHSH blobs for a previous iOS version (so that you can recover back to a jailbreakable iOS), 4.1 permanently updates your baseband.

Unlockers need to avoid 4.1 until the TinyUmbrella is updated.

Naah, you just have to run the TSS server thingie in TinyUmbrella 4.1.3 while iTunes is running. After you took care of that you just download ios 4.1 and RESTORE your iPhone with it. That way your old baseband remains and you still run ios 4.1.

This being said I must add that I didn't try this method myself as I'm still on 4.0.2 as long as the jailbreak isn't released.

It's because I do believe that only those who maintained their old baseband will have the possibility to perform an unlock.
