  • iOS 4.1 Beta 3 Now Available to Developers


    Important Notes: Developers ONLY! Do Not Update if you need unlocking abilities.

    A week later and Apple has gone ahead and pushed out Beta 3, for iOS 4.1 to Developers.

    It's quite apparent that Apple really wants to hash out 4.1 as quickly as possible, possibly to patch the security hole used by JailbreakMe.com. We'll find out shortly, so check back for updates when we can dig deeper into this new release. We will be sure to let you know if this release has any effect on the newest jailbreak method, which we assume it will of course.

    With this update, GameCenter is no longer supported on the original iPhone 3G and 2nd generation iPod Touch. Developers no longer have access to things such as "Player Status". Not really sure what exactly Apple has planned for GameCentre. It seems like such a tease lately.

    Since 4.1 Beta 1 was released, we've seen a slew of changes and fixes. Our Signal Bars were "fixed" and became slightly taller, along with a new baseband in 4.1, (02.07.01), which will break the current ultrasn0w unlock. GameCenter has returned with a slightly new look, however it seems to get pulled apart with each update. Small interface fixes have been introduced such as rotating icons for the camera view, the ability to add Favorite with FaceTime, SpellChecking disabling, Parental control, and even full Bluetooth AVRCP support.

    With this being the 3rd round for Beta, one can guess that the release is right around the corner.

    As usual you can find this at iPhone Dev Center - Apple Developer.

      @geoffe- i think that the only time the proximty sensor comes into play is when your using the telephone app.

      People are so ungrateful. YOU bitched and moaned "where is OUR jailbreak". YOU got your jailbreak and now YOU are complaining yet again. So what, they told everyone how they did it. It's a huge security problem that needs to be fixed. Just enjoy YOUR jailbreak and shut up.

      The proximity sensor is what shuts off the screen when you are holding your phone to your ear. There is issues with the iPhone 4 where it doesn't shut off the screen correctly, and people's cheeks are playing games with the options that show when you are on a phone call.

      It is only Phone.app. While holding the phone up to your face, it turns the screen (and touch sensitivity) off.. or rather in iPhone 4's case, doesn't. Seems to be a software issue.. it's just not sensitive enough.

      Edit: Jinx

      For those with a proximity issue where the screen turns off and WON'T TURN BACK ON UNTIL YOU LOCK THE PHONE, go to Reset All Settings. Fixes it. For pure sensitivity, this hasn't been fixed yet to my knowledge.

      I get that Apple has intelligent people working for it, and that they would have eventually found the hole... but it seems we served it up to them on a silver platter. I don't remember this being the trend in the past.
      The people at Apple were sure to figure it out that same day anyway. Take a look at any forum there are people that figured it out that night and that is not their sole job.

      People do this all the time. They warn the company then go public with the exploit. This is just different because the jailbreak used the exploit and then told everyone what it was but giving a fix for the bug within 24-48 hours themself. The old jailbreakme userland back in the 1.x day did the same thing. It used an image exploit then closed the door behind it.

      Agreed. I had no issue running my iPhone 4 with no JB whatsoever. Apple gave me a lot what I wanted with iOS4 (sb wallpaper, backgrounding, etc.) Now that the JB is out, I obviously take advantage! If nothing else, for the increased security. However I don't intend to ever load my phone full of jailbroken apps. My phone worked like a dream out of the box.

      Yeah. You are better with the jailbreak because there is a security issue that apple missed or ignored, someone found it and made it useful then fixed it. That's awesome! Now I use my iPhone 4 as a wifi hotspot and FaceTime over 3G and my phone is more secure then non-jailbroken ones because of "PDF loading warner". So I vote NO to apple fixing these issues because they don't give the perks that the dev team does! Jailbreak & Donate!

      I don't think anyone's b!tching about the jailbreak itself. It was slick, mostly painless (despite the traffic issues - which are mostly beyond their control) and one of the best implementations I've seen so far. Comex and the dev team did a stellar job.

      The only thing people are b!tching about is how the media are covering the jailbreak - making the exploit extremely public, and doing so before it can be legitimately patched in a timely manner. On a positive note, one thing's for sure.. jailbreaking got a lot of press this time around, both because of the security hole and the "now legal" nonsense. People know what it is now. At least the word's getting out.

      Yes I forgot to mention how amazing this JB was. Much love to Comex and co. It worked first time for me with absolutely no issues at all. I didn't even have to turn FaceTime back on or anything. Great job!

      I hope they do eventually patch this hole since it is a security risk. But i also hope the devs or somebody else find a bootrom exploit that lets redsnow work again. Kinda miss being able to change the boot image. This was a hella easy jailbreak though.

      Hi mate,

      I recently had my iphone 4 replaced because it had a loose home button and now the one it was replaced with has a proximity sensor problem. When I make a call and cover the sensor or even put it next to my ear the screen just doesn't shut off AT ALL. I'm getting fed up of swapping the damn thing, nearest apple store is about 30 miles away.

      Any idea's? I will greatly appreciate your opinions

      For this jailbreak, the boot image itself is where some of the boot injection hides. That's why you can see some weird colored pixels while booting. It may not be possible to change the image without losing an injection method anymore.. we shall see. There are exploits abound in userland, but I think what will be harder in the future is finding boot-time (or if we're very lucky, bootrom) exploits so jailbreaks continue to be untethered.

      So nothing regarding lockscreen has been updated? Im honestly thinking of not even getting the iPhone 4. Apple takes WAY too long to release stuff that should be there right at the beginning. I know about lockinfo but I think its *** to pay 4.99 ( i think ) for something that should already be a part of the OS.
