  • 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.

      update
      sync?
      I would say that would be the best thing to do. My question would be if you already have 3.0GM do you follow the above process. I have tried shift+restore back to 2.1.1, but I got an error 20. i then tried just a simple restore, but got the same error 20. I had to shift+restore to 3.0, which worked.

      It goes all the way through the restore process then 1013 error appears what can I do?

      can someone help I know the 1013 error is a baseband problem, how can I get it back to 2.2.1 and ready for 3.0?

      I'm sorry I really have no idea, I never ran the 3.0 Beta.
