iPhone 1.1.3 update fixes bricked iPhones

According to several reports, iPhone software version 1.1.3 has the ability to restore functionality to phones that were bricked during a past update. Because the software performs a complete rewrite of phone’s baseband, removing/writing over anything written by unlocking solutions, it allows users with bricked iPhones to restore the device’s original functionality, although after the update the device will once again be locked to AT&T. iPhone software version 1.1.3 is available now through the update feature in iTunes.

So basically, this update also functions as a re-virginizing tool for those of us wishing to upgrade to 1.1.3 with the hopes of later unlocking it when an unlocking solution is released into the wild…right?  That’s kinda nifty.
