    , and
  • 3.0 June 17th. Or Today.

    3.0 chatter has been going on a while now (and is already jailbroken and officially has Cydia ready and released for it, you faithful hackery types), and WWDC marked the official date announcement - June 17th (pf.edit, thanks guys - not the 19th). Developers were given out the gold master today - bye bye betas.

    We've already been over most of the 3.0 improvements, and Apple tossed us a couple bones as well:
    • MMS supported from 29 carriers as of game day, although AT&T will get that to us "later this summer". Thanks, AT&T.
    • Safari has got some solid speed increases - JavaScript 3x faster, HTML 5 support, HTTP streaming a/v, and auto-fill (nice).
    • Tethering supported from 22 carriers. Of course AT&T won't be on that list, but are sure they'll get to it soon.
    • You can now RENT and PURCHASE movies from the iPhone through iTunes, including audiobooks.

    iPod Touch users save your pennies - the upgrade will be free for iPhone users, but $9.95 for iPod Touch folks, same as 2.0 was.

      True - I believe it won't take long and there is plenty of time between now and the 17th - unless anything drastic changes I would expect a jailbreak to be released within a day or so of the final release.

      Almost certainly.

      This one is more difficult - new FW on the existing hardware shouldn't be a problem to jailbreak - but with new hardware it could take a while. The iPod Touch 2G did take a lot longer than any other device but the Dev Team was busy with the iPhone.
      I would imagine their priorities would be YellowSn0w for 3.0 (BB4.20.x - or failing that getting 3.0 to work with 2.28.00)then jailbreak the 3Gs - I would also be surprised if Apple haven't tried to make it as difficult as possible but time will tell.
      I would not expect a jailbreak for the 3Gs 'soon'.

      I'm done!

      For other people who may have this problem, i did it by enable restrictions, going to home screen, then back in to disable my restrictions.

      That brought up my missing icons.

      You should never update to updates such as from 2.x to 3.x, always restore.

      Or doing what he did...

      But reeko is right, a new FW number should be a clean install otherwise you will probably get problems later.

      Is there anyway i can get this back? I'm not sure doing a restore would help, as i did it that way to get 3.0 on in the first place (shift+click)

      Windows user BTW

      Please Help! Lol
      Do you have the settings app at least? If you do, go to settings -> general -> restrictions and turn camera (and anything else that's hidden) off and on.

      PS: Apple isn't out to kill jailbreakers. You won't see an update a week from now to stop any methods released this week with the GM (which is final). It just so happens that the very nature of jailbreaking means exploiting a flaw in order to get read/write access on all of the phone. From a security standpoint, this is something you DON'T want in your software. Apple is plugging the holes up not to piss you people off, but to keep their phones/OS safe. And when you sell your phone with a business angle (exchange, email, and all the personal contact information a phone can have), you NEED to keep the phone safe from any flaws.

      Some yes it means that it is final. Will it be in this case? I really think so
      The phones can be shipped with a buggy 3.0 GM

      When I purchased my last 16gb they were going to do an update instore before I left, but I told them not to. I wasn't taking a chance on a new BB.

      So basically even if the 3.0GM is on the 3GS when you take it home or get it in the mail there may already be an update waiting via iTunes etc.

      Downloaded OS 3.0 GM. Tried to restore to it. Restore failed. I am still running iTunes 8.1. Is this perhaps why the restore failed. I have read references to needing iTunes 8.2.

      okay, i have 3.0 running nicely.

      1. how the hell does autofill work? i have all my info in my contacts etc. have it all set up to go but when i press autofill in safari nothing happens. its not greyed out, just get zero out of it.

      2. push in mail? i thought that meant i'd get my mail as they were sent to me. surely i dont need to hve my fetch set to 15/30/hourly etc.

      if i'm wrong what the hell is push for in mail. is it that using hotmail is the problem, not the push itself?

      and finally, i hear folks were jailbreaking the betas of 3.0. is this still possible with quickpwn in itunes official 8.2? i dont care about basebands and yellowpish!

      i know somethings may have been answered before, but i have read all this thread and it's a mish mash of disinfo.

      oh, safari 4.0.....anyone know how to get the progress bar back??
      the trick for the beta terminal fix does not work.
