I'll report on Alpine single-DIN decks. I have an Alpine CDE-133BT with the latest firmware fix that addressed the issues such as button controls and metadata that many of us experienced with iOS 6. After updating to iOS 7 I have experienced zero issues. The deck works the same as it did after the firmware fix with iOS 6. So, Alpine users can put their fears aside and can/should update to iOS 7.

Did you ever find a solution for your bricked 133bt? I just bricked mine trying to update ir using the CD update... I'm feeling like such an idiot, at least I had a hands free device.

Didn't pay anything, just the cost of the craziness of being alone with my just my thoughts in my car while it was away being fixed. I took it back to the dealer where I bought it here in Western Canada and they sent it to the authorized repair centre just outside Toronto. It took awhile, but that was mostly because I think the dealer mistakenly sent it to the wrong place first. Once that got settled, it was quick. The installer at the dealer took it out for me, and put it back in once it got back too. I bought him some beer for his trouble.
I ended up talking to the guy at the repair centre to let him know it was coming and he knew right away what I had done - apparently they had had a few come back like that. After a short lecture he said that 'all' they would do is re-flash it and if that didn't work they'd swap out a new one (i.e. basically completely fix my mistake), but that this was the only time that they'd do it for me. Since I don't plan to do this again, that won't be an issue. They were really good about it.
As noted by someone else, no problem at all after the iOS7 upgrade either. Good luck!

Just wanted to share my experiences...
If have the CDE-W235EBT in Australia and managed to upgrade the firmware to 01.27.00 using a MacBook Pro (OS X 10.9). So you don't have to use Windows 7 or Android as per the instructions given. As mentioned by "User AJ" earlier, the trick is to connect, disconnect, connect again as per the "Alternative Update Method" in page 13 of the Windows 7 instructions:
All seems to be work fine with iOS7.1 now and since the upgrade shows song info via BT Audio and can skip tracks using the Head Unit.
Hope that helps someone
