This news just got in.

Apple seeded a new version of the iPhone SDK today, and yes like they predicted.. They locked the iPhones with the beta firmware v 5A225c.

One little side-note, apple has created a PSOD (pink screen of death) with the message This device is expired. Please install a newer version of the OS” (sound like a BSOD huh ;) )

Some developers have informed us, that you can still downgrade your iPhone to official firmwares to get it up and running again.
