  • iOS 4.3 Gold Master Available for Developers


    Late yesterday Apple began pushing iOS 4.3 GM to Apple Developers in anticipation of the iPad 2 launch. Alongside this release is Xcode 4 to developers as well. iOS 4.3 will include personal hotspot features, a faster Safari, the new AirPlay features and a handful of other new features when it is launched March 11th.

    If your not a developer and interested in the iOS 4.3 GM, you'll be pleased to know that this release does NOT require your UDID to be set up as a developer.

    You can find download links online via google: Google

    The update is compatible with the iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and 3G and 4G iPod touch, and of course the iPad 2.

      Idk if it works normal but I used iReb to put into DFU just to be safe I got not iTunes errors and did shift+restore.
      My iPad 1 is going to stay with gestures. Thanks for confirmation!

      I wonder how much faster Safari will be. It better be like 90% faster, cause that s**t is slow.

      Of course not. That is not what I was saying. If you claim you do not need one then go to the download link from apple and try and download.

      My point is a few months ago you all slammed a member for trying to get a copy, as well as another for trying to post a link. Seems MMI has re-thought this from the last time and is now encouraging members to do a search for the software... That OBTW is a "private" link for registered and paid Dev's.

      Im not complaining, however, I will not post my copy for MMI.

      You need a UDID to obtain a copy from Apple, not to install it on your phone. We didn't post a link to the firmware either. Telling people to go out into the vast world of the internetz to get something doesn't break any of our forum rules.

      No one said you didn't need it for install. However, you need it to download the version released to devs. What I was a stating is: any copy is not for the general public. A while back there was an issue about the same subject and a member of MMI was blasted for trying to obtain a copy by asking the question through this site.

      Because it is not a live firmware and is in the beta program.


      There is not linking to beta software. It will only cause issues for MMi and nobody wants that.

      You see how bad HTC and others went after leaked Android software. Apple isn't afraid to do the same with stuff that is in beta.

      Enabling and promoting piracy are two separate things. This article certainly does the latter.

      Gold Master is the final beta version of a software before released to the public.

      If you have GM even when final is released and you "check for update" there is none. You're g2g with GM.

      It's the final stage of the betas, not necessarily the final beta; take a look at 4.2a GM.

      I read on Redmondpie you can enable them on iPhone 4. Idk about pad. Apple said it was just for devs to see how it worked with their apps. Maybe because future idevices are rumored to not have a home button? 
