Hi everyone, I just thought id see how else is still on the good old 1.0.2. I tried updating before, didn't work and now im too scared to try again! What version are you using? and why haven't you updated? I just don't really see a big advantage to take the risk and update to 1.1.1.

You should be able to upgrade, unless your phone in unlocked.

Most jailbroken phone are running 1.1.2. A smaller percentage of them have 1.1.1. And very few still have 1.0.2.

1.1.1 Advantages - By visiting jailbreakme.com, you can jailbreak your iPhone via a website. No computers necessary. Easiest jailbreak, hands down. 1.1.1 also includes features such as double tapping the Home button and Mobile iTunes.

1.1.2 Advantages - It's the latest firmware. It is the most secure firmware. And there are a lot of apps out there that will only run on either 1.1.1 or 1.1.2.

However, I'm sure that there are still several unlocked iPhones on 1.0.2. If you're jailbroken only, it's wise to update.

I am still on 1.0.2 and plan on staying there till Apple actually offers one of two things or both things. I want to see an ebook reader that works without having to Jailbreak, and I don't mean the webapp, I want a native ebook like booksapp. The other thing that would make me switch is is some real updates in the OS on the phone like built in IM or MMS.

Aside from that 1.0.2 works well for me, this is the first phone that I've owned that I've not thought about getting rid of on a daily basis.

Effects on unlocks and Third-party applications
The update breaks AnySim's unlocks. Logically, you can't unlock this update using AnySim and there's no alternative to iTunes for activation. If you want to activate, it will only work using iTunes and a standard AT&T account. Nate says, "that is the only way we have been able to activate so far." Nate tried to upgrade an AnySim 1.2u iPhone and it failed. Even while he was able to force it to boot, the phone refused to activate even with a normal AT&T SIM card. "I suspect it's due to the fact that the baseband could not be upgraded to the 1.1.3 'required' version", he says.
Other updates remain untested, like iPhone Sim Free or any of the hardware-based ones, like TurboSIM. In theory, these should work just fine, but jailbreak and activation would be absolutely impossible for the time being. We would have to wait until the update gets released in the open to try new alternative activation methods.
Your favorite third-party apps will be gone too, with no possibility of return for now. The update fixes the bugs which allowed "the jailbreak method we were using for 1.1.2, locking us out again, as expected."

-the firmware installs with a private key that only Apple has at this time

i'm still on 1.0.2 and I don't plan on upgrading.

I've been on tmobile in chicago for about a year and I'm jailbroken. Recently I moved out east in western PA and the data speed sucks.
If cingular is better out here then I may switch. In that case I would update Otherwise I'm stuck with 1.0.2 on tmob. If I was just going to jailbreak then I'd update to 1.1.2 for sure.
