  • 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.

      So Once quickpwn is able to jailbreak 3.0, what happens when we update to 3.0? Like how do we get all of the cydia apps and themes that we had on our phone before we upgraded to 3.0? Because I'm guessing the update would delete all of that? And I wouldn't want to have to re-download everything.
      Thanks.
      Oh and farfrommovin, I'm wondering the same thing.
      Anybody know?

      (If your asking me) You know.. I've been wondering that myself. I think the jailbreak had something to do with it. I was worried about b2 expiring for a while.., and I eventually just forgot about it.. It just never expired for me. I was thinking about getting one of the newer betas, as b2 is very.. laggy from time to time. (But what do you expect, it's an early beta.) Just too much hassle to download, then the whole bypassing activation and all that.

      Actually, now that I think about it.. in the SystemVersion.plist... (I think that's the one..) I think iUtilities changes that plist to say 2.2.1 and that its a public release and not 3.0 on a beta.. That could do it. Unless other people who used that method got an expiration..

      I know in OS X I change that plist to say 10.5.6 or 10.5.7 just so I don't have to update to a certain version of Leopard for certain software.. It could be something like that. I don't know other than that.

      I'm in the same place. I have an unlocked 2g. If I upgrade to 3.0, I thought I'd still be unlocked, but not jailbroken. Is this not the case?

      ^No jailbreak. Ya'll seem to forget the jailbreak "activates" the phone.

      So I'll be unlocked, but not activated. Hmmm. Kinda defeats the point, huh? How are people activating it on tmobile?

      wow if you updated to 3.0 GM and your on tmobile. And you had tmobile from a jailbreak. You just lost your unlock and will not be able to get it unlocked even if you downgrade to 2.2.1 because the baseband got updated. So you are stuck now with a bricked iPhone till who knows when they come out with an unlock for 3.0 software, and may i remind you it took dev team a little while to get an unlock for iphone 3G 2.O software.(they still rock though) So sorry but you are stuck!!!

      ^They are talking about 2g unlock. You couldnt upgrade to 3.0 on a 3g and keep any type of unlock...cause the baseband would get upgraded. So all you have to do is downgrade...if it will let you.
