Apple posts iPhone 1.1.2 firmware ahead of Euro launchHours ahead of the official launch of the iPhone in Germany and the UK, Apple has posted the first international version of the handset's firmware on its website.
Although yet to appear in iTunes, the 1.1.2 firmware [160MB] has been posted to Apple's support website.
No release notes have been provided, though the upgrade adds multi-language support for the interface and is expected to patch security exploits that have allowed enthusiasts to run unsigned code on the phone's 1.1.1 operating system and subsequently unlock the device to be used with any carrier.
Reports have not yet surfaced of the update breaking previously jailbroken iPhones, though users who have modified their phones are advised to avoid installing the firmware until more information about the software is available.
