Ok, I know this bit of news is about how unlocking your iPhone may end up bricking it permanently, but its the little tidbit about the software update that I'm most interested in -

Could later this week mean tomorrow? You know how Apple likes to do things on Tuesdays.

Apple says iPhone unlocking may cause permanent damage

Apple said Monday that many of the unauthorized iPhone unlocking programs available on the Internet cause irreparable damage to the iPhone's software, which will likely result in the modified iPhone becoming permanently inoperable when a future apple-supplied iPhone software update is installed.

The Cupertino-based company said it plans to release the next iPhone software update, containing many new features including the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, later this week.

"Apple strongly discourages users from installing unauthorized unlocking programs on their iPhones," the company wrote in a statement to the press. "Users who make unauthorized modifications to the software on their iPhone voilate their iPhone software license agreement and void their warranty."

Apple added that the "permanent inability to use an iPhone due to installing unlocking software is not covered under the iPhone's warranty."

There are a variety of other threads on this topic (the upcoming patch and timing). When Stevo did his presentation on the new ipod line earlier this month he stated that the update for the phones would be out "later this month". He is running out of time, so anytime in the 6 days is possible, though there seems to be a strong feeling that tomorrow is likely (or at least speaking further towards it is likely).
