The new update is now available in iTunes. I am going to wait because I understand it will "break" the tethering hack. But for those that have been waiting for it, go get it now.

Or is this just the SMS update that was to come out tomorrow? I'm thinking that's what it is. The real update will be 3.1,right?

I suppose this is for the security flaw...I'll get it when I go home. :)

Thanks for the update!

disables the tethering hack?
This one shouldn't. I jumped the gun a bit so I edited the post. I forgot about this update. It was said to be coming out tomorrow. The big update we are waiting for is rumored to disable the tethering hack.

I haven't see any reports of this breaking the tethering hack. All 3.0.1 includes is the SMS vulnerability fix. They could have put it in there seeing as everyone would want to update to 3.0.1 to patch it. I am on 3.1 beta and they haven't release anything for us yet unless it was already in 3.1.

I can't seem to verify what's 'good' in it? ;)

3.0.1 Available

This fixes the SMS attack issue. I wonder are any other goodies attached.

Yeah I just realized that's what you meant. I was just thinking they would throw it into 3.0.1 since everyone would want to update.

thank you for post.
it seems like they just addressed the sms problem... its kind of weird how no one ( from internet readings ) got an Izombie instead of iPhone.

i am sure a lot of people just turned their heads since jailbreak could become super hard :)

Whoops. If this is redundant or in the wrong forum please delete the thread. I will say that it took the normal 15-20 minutes and everything seems fine after installing it.
