  • 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!

      I have a feeling there will be lots of angry pricks throwing tantrums once the fw is released and there is no "instant" jailbreak.
      Sorry, correct it was planetbeing. I was in a rush leaving work when I posted that. Thank you for the correction.

      I believe last time apple held a conference all of a sudden they released a patch for MacOSX or something that day or even that hour.

      All the news were saying that it was specifically an iPhone 4 conference.

      Upgraded my 3G to 4.0 and what I get..
      1. battery sucks and it really drain the juice within few hours even without using it.
      2. Can't charge the battery, it goes down to 20% eventhough when you start charging the level is higher. and the charging is really really slow!!!
      3. sometimes just can't open the applications and not enough memory to open the applications.
      BTW I jailed break using Redsn0w and unlock using ultrasn0w.

      Don't hold your breath! From looking and playing with 4.1 I think it will be a informational and explanational news release. Just my $.02.

      Do not ask for UDID slots here. They will only get deleted.

      If anyone has the beta, try testing WiFi connections at a public hotspot that uses a splash screen (like a hotel or airport). There seems to be a bug in iOS 4.0 that hasn't gotten a lot of attention where at least the 3GS models cannot connect to those networks at all, forcing everyone to use 3G or Edge instead.

      I for one think it would be hilarious if all the "angry pricks" really p.o. the devs and cause them to decide not to release jb for i4.

      to those with the beta installed how stable does it seem to y'all? I'm wondering if there will be multiple betas or if it's just this one to be sure there are no major bugs.
