  • iOS 4.1 Beta Now Available To Developers


    Could this be it? The infamous iOS 4.1 update?! You bet it is! Now available through Apple's Developer Center, iOS 4.1 Beta is available for download. This is news we have all been anticipating for some time now, but the question here is, what exactly are we getting in iOS 4.1? Will our antenna issues be solved, or will they simply be "masked"?

    The releases notes don't go into detail about any fixes, however they do state that support for the iOS 4 preview version of Game Center will be phased out soon. There is some discussion about renaming some files, and some string changes, but nothing extremely interesting.

    UPDATE: Reports of users experiencing no change in signal quality for those that have been having the "death grip" problem.

    UPDATE: It appears that the iOS 4.1 update includes the signal bar changes that Apple had promised that "will adjust how signal strength bars are calculated and displayed." This includes making the bars larger than they were before so it's easier to identify the signal strength

    The change will adopt a recently recommended formula from AT&T that will more accurately display actual signal strength at any given time. The update will also increase the size of the smaller bars (1, 2, and 3) to make them easier to see.
    As expected, the modem firmware has also now been updated to 02.07.01. This means: JAILBREAKERS AND UNLOCKERS NEED TO STAY AWAY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! Remember all that hard work planetbeing just showed us? Do yourself a favor and do not update yet, so that you too may utilize the unlock method he has found in the future.

    What might be particularly exciting to most of our readers, is that this release, once public, could mean that our next Jailbreak Tool will be unleashed upon us all. However, I wouldn't get too excited yet, this is just the SDK Beta. Once this baby goes public, keep your eyes peeled for an iOS 4.0 Jailbreak. So that means, REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR SHSH BLOBS!

      You know what bothers me is... the deathgrip issue may prove to be detrimental to us users who jailbreak/unlock.

      What if right before 4.1 is released Apple issues a recall on all the iphone 4s with these issues. Clearly these re-issued phones will include the latest firmware and will remain unjailbroken/locked. The recall time period may only last one month, and all those jailbroken iPhone 4.0 will have to decide to either keep their defective jailbroken devices or switch to a brand new unjailbroken device.

      Well sorry but google will be your friend here. Members are not allowed to post links to beta firmware/software.


      As for getting your UDID up then please look at our BST (Buy/Sell/Trade) section to see if anyone has open slots. Asking for one in here will get deleted and/or an infraction.

      I have 2 i4 here and only have the prox sensor issue on one. No deathgrip on either. We have had them now 2 weeks and have not yet even dropped a call on either. Our old 3G would drop them continuously, almost every call at the house. The only complaint I have is the a2dp cuts in and out, but I think that is an ios4 issue as my 3G did the same after the 4.0 update.
      On a seperait note I get annoyed reading all the post from people asking about i4 jb... I could only imagine how it makes the devs feel.

      Well um, where I grew up asking questions is how people learn, so in essence this question was my research. What was I supposed to think of and Google "can a non developer install iOS betas on iPhone?" I would think not,and that's not being lazy it's putting to use what this forum is established for, no? You should really consider what you say before going and calling people out. I really hate that just because the Internet is anonymous people
      like you have the balls to be so blatently ignorant. Finally I will spell some1 however the hell I want to.
      Maybe one day you can grow up an not be such a poser. Probably not but we can dream right?

      Anyway thnx for indirectly answering my question after all.

      Not really. They said neither, jb or unlock, are ready for the public yet. The video that MN posted yesterday even says that.

      Muscle Nerd posted a video as well? I saw the Planet Being one, and yup people are really misinformed. The JB and Unlock is a mess right now - it still needs to be cleaned up and isn't ready for release (regardless wether 4.0.1 is released or not).

      I have a feeling there will be lots of angry pricks throwing tantrums once the fw is released and there is no "instant" jailbreak.

      If it is in beta and Plantbeing/Comex release unlock/JB, then Apple could see it and patch it before the release of 4.1 GM. So the question is where is the balance between having the Public enjoying the most current firmware while having all the gooey greatness of Jailbreak?


      I never did like cats. MICE FTW.

      ^^ thats true but most people who jailbreak should know not to update before reading on dev team's website. Their just idiots otherwise.

      Whether or not the dev team unleash the jailbreak/unlock when 4.1 is released doesnt matter. Apple will always play cat or mouse and will release a FW to mess up the jailbreak.
