iOS 5.1 Updates iPhone 4 (GSM) Baseband to 4.12.01 and iPhone 4S to 1.5.04

After weeks of speculation, the iOS 5.1 was released yesterday with some updates to iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S basebands.

For unlockers like most of us here, we are more concern of the baseband than anything else. So, to summarize the baseband revision for iOS 5.1:

  • iPhone 4S: 1.5.04
  • iPhone 4 (GSM): 4.12.01
  • iPhone 3GS: 5.16.05 (no change from iOS 5.0.1)

As far as we know, none of the basebands above can be unlocked.

The following are change logs/features of iOS 5.1 for your information:

  • Enhanced Siri dictation support during text input "on supported devices" (iPhone 4S in 2011) (i.e. Turn on or off Bluetooth, take a picture etc.).
  • Carrier updates (e.g. AT&T 11.1).
  • AT&T indicator now says "4G" when applicable. (4S Only)
  • Baseband updates.
  • Battery life reportedly fixed.
  • Fixes iPhone 4S support for Caller ID Name Display (on supported carriers – i.e. Rogers & Fido in Canada).
  • Users can now enter any Apple ID to sign-up for an iCloud account. Previously, they had to use (or create a new) email Apple ID.
  • New Montesi Wallpaper
  • Images can now be removed manually from the Photo Stream in iCloud. Any photos deleted are now also removed from other iOS devices connected to iCloud.
  • Shake-to-shuffle bug fix, which caused the Music app to freeze.
  • The Setup Assistant caused an "infinite setup loop" for some users. When the setup was completed, the iPhone would jump back to a "thank you" screen ad infinitum. Users had to reboot the device to restore functionality.
  • SpringBoard bug fix, the home screen for the iPhone would sometimes fall into a state when double-clicking the home button would not display the Camera icon.
  • Turn on or off 3G toggle restored on iPhone 4S.
  • Bluetooth bug fix; enabling Bluetooth and returning to home screen, the Bluetooth icon still remains in the status bar.
  • Possible bug fixes on Wi-Fi signal strength on all devices.
  • Safari, address bar added text (Go to this address).
  • Improved Assistive Touch.
  • Improved Location Services.
  • License column added, under the About menu.
  • Support for Siri in Japanese
  • Possible fix to Outgoing Call No Audio (OCNA) issue.
  • New Lockscreen camera button no longer have to double tap home button just swipe up to access the Camera app.
  • Dictation on iPad

Meanwhile, as always, hackers should be back from their snooze mode by now to jailbreak this latest iOS release from Apple.
