  • 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.

      Compress the folder into a .zip archive, then change the suffix to .ipsw and you have your file. ON the Mac, pull out the .zip archive that just got extracted from the Trash, then change the suffix.

      Or deselect "Open safe files automatically" on Safari prefs before downloading.

      Thanks for the tip guys. Downloading a fresh copy to try it out. Has anyone officially read the terms and conditions the developers must accept to download this? I am seeing many reports that installing this GM version could block commercial copies from being installed. Has anyone seen or have a copy of the official disclaimor?

      I'm using the GM Seed and it didn't even have the camera button in messages. I had to update the .ipcc file, and it added the camera button, but MMS still won't send.

      I changed the file extension and the files changes icon and name but iTunes does not let me (Option+Click) and update. It says it is an incompatable file.

      Unless theyve fixed it, I think if you're downloading with firefox, it messes it up. Or it could be safari. Its been a while since I had that problem. (Thats if youre on a mac.)

      Cory, drag the trashed .zip file, then change the file extension. It should work.
