Hmm, are you perhaps referring to some other vulnerability? It seems to
me that even V1.04 still uses ECB. If an input string that consists of
only the letter "A" repeated 48 times is encrypted using password
"foo123" the ciphertext shows blocks that are a clear sign of ECB:

$ printf AAAAAAAA  > 000000000000.cfg
$ printf AAAAAAAA >> 000000000000.cfg
$ printf AAAAAAAA >> 000000000000.cfg
$ printf AAAAAAAA >> 000000000000.cfg
$ printf AAAAAAAA >> 000000000000.cfg
$ printf AAAAAAAA >> 000000000000.cfg
$ anacrypt 000000000000.cfg -p foo123

anacrypt version: 1.0.4
Usage:
anacrypt {infile.cfg|-d <dir>} [-p password] [-m] [-i] [-v] [-h]
-d <dir> Specifes that all .cfg files in <dir> should be encrypted
[-p passwords] Specify password used to generate keys
-m Generate MAC.tuz files that are phone specific
-v1 Use version 1 encryption(Compatible with older phone models) 
-i Generate security.tuz file
-h Show this help screen
