  • 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.

      Does the newest version of itunes 8.2 allow the shift+click option to load a different carrier bundle? If not, does anyone have the 8.2b7 itunes download for PC? Thanks

      Here is a question that I have not seen an answer to. Will the 3.0 GM seed have an expiration date? If I install it on all of the devices that have beta 5 on them now, will I have to upgrade them to the final release 3.0 after the 17th? I already upgraded my main device to the GM seed.

      Does beta 5 expire on June 19th?

      I heard Apple fixed the thing where you can shift-click to restore/update to whatever firmware you like on iTunes 8.2, but not on the beta. Also, 8.2 changes the way your computer talks to your device and it prevents a jailbreak somehow.

      Anyway, I would recommend you use iTunes 8.2 beta:

      MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

      and only upgrade to the full iTunes 8.2 if the Dev Team says to or if the 3.0 jailbreak requires it.


      EDIT: sorry, misread the post. The only thing you can modify by shift-clicking is your firmware.
      I don't know much about carrier bundles because I live in Canada and am using Rogers, which already supports MMS on the iPhone. (but I haven't tried it out yet.)

      This is so funny:

      gold master is NOT BETA x.

      You can get it from SB's site.

      You need iTunes 8.2

      You do NOT need a dev account

      Get the ispw file, plug in iphone, shift + restore select new f/w.

      If the new f/w has a .zip at the end of it... Delete .zip before proceeding.

      You will be able to Jailbreak, if not now then soon.

      Push service is provided or not provided by whomever handles your email service. Yahoo by itself does not. Verizon Yahoo does.

      Hotmail keeps me up to date on the latest penis enhancement products too. We've come along way since the vaccuum pump...

      MMS IS NOT SUPPORTED BY AT&T until the end of summer. Just in time for school, and a whole new generation of sexters...

      Now...

      Is there anyway to turn off the 'search page'? Does it really have a practical use? Are there that many people with cluttered pages that they cant find certain things?

      Also, i did a full restore, why did i retain the supreme prefs mod, as well as all my blank icons?

      Guys, it's really really easy for AT&T to see if you're tethering. Now that they're actually coming with an official solution, be VERY CAREFUL if you choose to hack/edit your way.

      I got OS 3.0 with no problems installing. I am not a developer. Everything is working fine. Just don't see MMS. I have to upload a file for that. I was sending MMS fine with SwirlyMMs before the update so it should be fine now when I upload the file for MMS.
