    Firmware 1.1.4 was quietly released on February 26th, 2008 by Apple Inc.

    It contains no discernible differences from Firmware 1.1.3 besides bug fixes.
    There is no flash, there is no new applications. It is simply for bug fixes. It has a large file size though, so it is most likely preparing and setting up file systems and security systems for the SDK (Software Development Kit)

    Firmware 1.1.4 can be jailbroken via the ZiPhone Jailbreak method, the same as 1.1.3. See this link for proof. If you are on 1.1.3, I do not advise upgrading. One user reports that it seems very unstable. The ZiPhone jailbreak is out now. Note that the ZiPhone jailbreak still does not work for older 16 GB(pre-MacWorld) iPod touches or the newer 32 GB iPod touch. However, it does still work with the older 8 GB and new 16 GB iPod touches and iPhones.

    Here's MacBam's report on the jailbreak.

    Many 3rd party applications work with 1.1.4, because there is not much difference between 1.1.3 and 1.1.4. Once again, since there is no discernible difference between the two firmwares, I would advise staying on 1.1.3. It has also been noted by one user that Summerboard and Customize do NOT work on 1.1.4.

    DIFFERENCES AS WE CAN TELL
    - Audible difference (Better, Clearer Volume)
    - Better Tabbed Browsing (No White Screen)
    - Safari is more stable
    - Better Lyrics Management
    - Better Mail

    Am i the only one with an ipod touch 16Go from the first week of sale full 1.1.3 jailbroken ?? It worked like a charm with Ziphone 2.0 OSX GUI on Leopard 1.5.2. Doesn't works on XP, Vista, or with the Terminal in OSX. But with the GUI on OSX, it worked. Could not explain why.
    I will try to jailbreak to 1.1.4 tomorow and post the result.
