    wow .. seems amazing .. but im sure it will take forever to unlock

  • Jeff

    As far as I can tell all of those pictures were of the iPhone and its new features. What about the iPod Touch’s new features? I’m sure everyone would like to know about that. And, I know this entry said iPhone/iPod Touch but, all I saw was the iPhone…

  • Alan

    Jeff, I know what you mean, I am trying to find that information too. I don’t believe that there have been any “confirmed” reports of iPod touch 1.1.3, but as history will tell you, everytime the iPhone gets update, the iPod touch isn’t far behind. I’ll notify everyone in the forum if I have that information. (Also because the iPhone is more popular because it’s cooler, I have an iPod touch, but I love the iPhone so much that I modded it to look like an iPhone) 🙂

  • truehybridx

    lol minus the baseband crap itouches are easier cuz all they need is jailbreaking….. and no contract to make work

    wtf they are doing wht sony did with the psp….
    implementing what hackers have done

  • Alan

    Dude, don’t say that. iPhones are freaking awesome, I love those things! You are right to a certain degree, iPod touches are just iPhones, with a bunch of disabled apps. I so can’t live without my on my iPod. Yes, the PSP used to be all that and a bag of chips, but ever since the iPhone, they’ve wanted a piece of that action. I still have yet to see, the iPod touch 1.1.3, but hey, I think that the 1.1.3 is completely and unbelieveably real. Apple even said publically that someone had leaked information from inside Apple (Google it). To tell you the truth, I’m a little scared, because of how easy it is to get stuff out or worse, in Apple. Who the fu** knows what kind of jackass might try to get into Apple, with non-good intentions. They could Desttroy Apple completely, by putting a new breed of viruses tat actually affect Mac’s!!! I am scared though…

  • Jeff

    Thanks Alan I can’t wait to see what Apple has come up with for the iPod Touch’s new features. I have an iPod Touch myself and I am very annoyed that there is no or But, even without those my iPod Touch is still great. I LOVE IT!!

  • Alan

    I agree. I too was annoyed with Apple’s iPod touch. Let’s look at why this is… The iPod that also does video (iPod video), The 1st and 2nd generation iPods, right off the bat were canibalizing the iPhone’s sales from the start. And now imagine the iPod Classic, iPod Nano 3rd generation, and now the iPod touch. The iPod touch alone would take away like 99% of iPhone sales if it had every app without camera, speaker, or phone type stuff. Imagine an iPhone without the sucky AT&T and no contract. Period!!! Thats why, and i agree Jailbreaking was worth it in the end. I am dumb. I wasted like 1 month thinking about jailbreaking, and if I should do it. 🙂 I am still searching for the iPod touch 1.1.3. I will kelp you all informed, even if I am not the first to get a copy of the firmware.

  • scott

  • Alan

    I guess if you hacked it, but still, the wiggling icons is kinda, sorry for saying this but, it look really fugggly. They shold have just put a setting in the, instead.

  • steven

    Downloaded and installed the new software on the touch.

    Purchased the $20 “upgrade”

    Nothing… No new apps, nothing. Beware.

    The rich get richer, I guess…

  • Jim

    You have to hit the update button on the ipod home screen in iTunes for the update to take affect. The software has to download then it installs. 165 Meg It won’t do it with a normal sync.

  • Wesley

    The “upgrade” will sync normally after you purchase it, on Ipod it activates the new features that were rumored including iphone software. Once you purchase and then iTunes is finished “syncing applications” instructions for moving the icons around the springboard will pop up.

  • tokz1k

    what!? Since when did they charge for stupid stuff like this. Come on is apple the new windows? Greedy greedy greedy

  • cean

    do i have to upgrade to $20 in order to see those moving icons?

  • Alan

    Yes, you have to upgrade to get that. I reccommend not to update. Period. If you do update and not pay you won’t get anyfeatures except the iPhone dock and have your 3rd party apps stripped away.
