It's already been available -- and hacked -- for a a few days now, but iPhone firmware 1.1.2 has finally reached iTunes, the natural home of all things iPhone. We honestly haven't noticed much more new since we started poking around -- the .m4r ringtone hack seems to be back, and custom ringtones a...
