Define "good" please.

If you speak in terms of jailbreaking - yes, 1.1.1 is fully, um, jailbreakable.

1.1.1 does have a security flaw called the TIFF exploit - an exploit based on .TIFF images. However, this is what all of the jailbreaks available for 1.1.1 are based on.

The exploit has been patched in 1.1.2.

For all those that just do ring tones and don't do third party apps, upgrade from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2. I finally upgraded to 1.1.1 and right away noticed there was now a slight lag and it was not smooth when you changed screens, like checking weather, stocks, ect. I was also only getting 1-2 bars of signal where I usually got 4 or 5. I kept 1.1.1. for about a month and just upgraded to 1.1.2. The lag went away and my signal strength is back to normal.
So if you don't do third party apps, its worth upgrading.
