  • 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.

      Please don't come moaning here when you find it is a scam.
      didnt say i was going to be a fool..i never pay for soft unlocks or jailbreaks from unworthy websites although i would be happy to donate at least a $100 to the dev team for their hard work but they do not accept donations i barely trust putting my money into failsims..but they carry me when im in other countries..sorry if you are taking this as an arguement i am clearly not trying to cause tension just expressing myself. i am sorry confucious

      Hey just thought I'd share a new feature I found in 3.0 that I haven't heard of anywhere before, you can now have 11 pages of apps (plus Spotlight, so it ends up being 12 pages of SpringBoard)as opposed to 1.1.x and 2.x's 9 pages maximum.

      There's a lot of other features I've found, and most other 3.0 users probably have found some too, but half the fun of new features is finding them yourself.

      and if this isn't your first experience with the dev-team, you will notice how they are basically saying that they have unlocked 2.30 BUT it could be the exact same exploit as the new 3.0
      so they will NOT release anything until after 3.0 is released.

      Hey guys,

      Just curious here. But I got the 3.0, it works great! Super fast, I love how the texting works now!

      But looking at apples videos on the MMS and all that, they have a little camera next to where you type (to the left) to insert a pic. I dont have that

      So my question is, is how are people using MMS? My account wasnt set up for swirly or anything, I just wanted to see how it worked was all

      You have to update your ipcc with a custom one. Check out the mms thread in my signature below

      2. Shift + Check for Update and install ATT_US.ipcc

      I dont understand that. more info on that? And is that on a mac? Or a PC? im on a Mac, soooo yeaa

      Well ok, so I tried it on my mac, and it wont let me use the files, there just gray'd out and you cant use them

      In windows XP (boot camp) they just dont show up when you get into the english folder


      Im really confused here. All on iTunes 8.2

      You'll need one of the 8.2 beta releases (beta 10 or less, I believe) as Apple removed the ability to manually update ipcc files in the final version. I believe StealthBravo has 8.2 beta4 avail for download on his website

      Please read the whole thread, we are of the same opinion my friend : )

      I got 3.0 GM Unlocked/Jailbroken on my 2G. Google "Unlock iPhone 2G OS 3.0 7A341 Final Version". Works great but no Cydia/Icy/Whatever yet

      The unlock is fine for 2G but jailbreak? Tje iHackintosh article states
      If you are looking for jailbreak wait for dev team announcement may be 17th June.
      Apart from the fact they have the date wrong (the dev team won't release the jailbreak until the 19th) it suggests that this method does not jailbreak. Are you saying you have root access to your phone?

      I'm an idiot. It's unlocked but not jailbroken. Sorry for the confusion.

      Can someone confirm that for those who have a iphone 3g on a 3.0GM and updated BB, as well as iTunes 8.2, that on the 17th, it will just be a case of restore and then update, rather than shift + restore, as the iTunes 8.2 doesn't allow for the shift + restore option Thanks
