  • 3.0 is Here. iPhone / iPod Touch Come and Get it.


    Here it is folks! You can get iPhone OS 3.0 immediately, as of now, this very moment, ahora mismo, from iTunes. Not sure how to do it? Open iTunes, making sure your iPhone is connected to your comp. Click your iPhone/iPod Touch's icon on the left.



    Then just click the "Check for Update" button.



    iTunes will let you know 3.0 is available - grab it. Then just do as it says to continue upgrading.



    NOTE: If youo're not seeing it yet in iTunes, grab it from the following download links:

    iPhone 1G - Download
    iPhone 3G - Download

    Use Firefox to get it (or IE - blech), as Safari decompresses the file when it saves it. Then, when the .ipsw file is on your Desktop (or wherever), go back into iTunes, hold down the Option key (Shift in Windows) and press the Restore button in your device's tab in iTunes. iTunes will ask you what file you want to restore with - choose the appropriate 3.0 file you just grabbed.



    For all you paranoid folks, here's the rundown on upgrading:
    • BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP. Of course everything will go smooth and safe, but IF something happens, you want to make sure you've backed up your contacts, photos, important SMS, etc.
    • You WILL lose all Cydia apps. This is the same with EVERY firmware upgrade - iTunes has no idea you've got 'em on there, and sure isn't going to politely put them back for you after you upgrade. This includes all Cydia app settings, etc. Backup your stuff from those too if you haven't yet and need to.
    • 3.0 WILL have an official PwnageTool jailbreak (yup, including Cydia) shortly following the release of the 3.0 firmware (which just happened), according to MuscleNerd when he demoed the 3.0 unlock.
    • That being said, 3.0 will NOT BE UNLOCKABLE UNTIL FRIDAY. The DevTeam has already unlocked both the iPhone 1G and 3G running 3.0 with the new unlock tool, ultrasn0w, but they will not be releasing the tool until Friday. We'll let you know as soon as it happens, but for now - if you NEED to be unlocked, do NOT upgrade until Friday. Otherwise, you can upgrade just fine today and still unlock on Friday.
    • You DON'T need to wipe your device, go to stock 2.2.1 first, or anything - whether you're jailbroken or not, unlocked or locked, you can simply press "Update" in iTunes to upgrade to 3.0 - and you'll be fine.
    • Like you really need a list of features first, but we've got em detailed here.
    • iTunes 8.2 is required and fine to use. Jailbreak, unlock, all that will work fine in 8.2!

    New features include:

    *MMS (iPhone 3G and 3GS only) (Available later this summer for AT&T users)
    *Tethering (iPhone 3G and 3GS only)(Available later this summer for AT&T users)
    *Stereo Bluetooth
    *Landscape Keyboard in all apps
    *Cut & Paste
    *Spotlight Search
    *Voice Notes
    *Upgraded Calendar to include Exchange sync
    *Buy/Rent movies and shows directly on your iPhone
    *Enhanced Stocks
    *Increased speed
    *Shake to shuffle for the iPod.
    *Mobile Me improvements including Find My Phone and Remote Wipe.


    Please read the following before asking questions

    General Rules to Upgrading your Firmware:

    1. Back up your iPhone in iTunes first. If your phone is currently jailbroken and you have any apps hidden or in categories you will need to unhide them before making your back-up. This will avoid the "where are all my icons?" questions after you arrive at 3.0.
    2. If your phone is currently jailbroken you will need to use the RESTORE button, not the upgrade button. If you upgrade you will automatically lose about 500mb of disk space and never recover it until you finally restore. (This is due to Cydia moving files around). If your phone is not jailbroken then you can use the upgrade button without any issues.
    3. After you restore you can use your back-up in iTunes to get all your contacts, SMS, photos and App Store apps back. Do NOT ask about cracked apps!
    4. When you restore you will lose all your jailbroken apps which you will have to manually re-download from Cydia. Some apps are not 3.0 compatible yet.
    5. If you have an iPhone 3G this will upgrade your baseband and lock your phone. The unlock is not scheduled for release until Friday June 19th.
    6. If you have a first generation iPhone you can restore to 3.0 and re-jailbreak (when Quickpwn is updated). The baseband stays the same so you will not have to re-unlock.
    7. The initial release of Quickpwn and Pwnage Tool will be available for download on the iPhone Dev-Team blog. http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

      I have read this entire thread in and out and have yet to come by a couple of questions:

      I know that cydia and all jailbroken apps won't back up in itunes, is there a way to back them up from another program?
      I have specifically made my iPhone just the way i want it (also using ssh) with certain files in place of apps like vWallpaper, gpsphone, and winterboard so it'd be nice to pop those back on 3.0 quickly.

      also I pretty much just got this iPhone and i have yet to experience updating it, will i lose music? most of the songs do not exist on my computer, is there a way to back those up?

      Also, i don't give a flying F about the camcorder on 3gs as Cycorder (on cydia) is perfectly capable of recording video at good quality (not video editing but you can do that on your computer i'm sure).
      I regret not waiting for 3GS (but how would i have known dangit) because of the speed and the price cut for 16GB.

      Also when people say no MMS whatsoever... does that mean i can't text at all until AT&T resolves it? if so i'll be waiting for that before i update to 3.0.

      I appreciate any help, and please no n00b bashing as i have tried to learn everything i can about this process.

      wow
      i was trying to be nice and not say what i really thought and have said in two previous posts, which is,
      WHAT A STUPID F&%$ING QUESTION!

      if we knew what was up it would be all over the front page and on the dev team blog.

      so again i kindly say, no, we do not have any updates kind sir.

      better?



      and btw, no matter what the dicatator like rules may be on here pertaining to insults or flaming, i personally feel that calling someone stupid, when they have proven themselves to be, is the same as saying someone is white because they have light skin.
      if it looks like a duck and quacks........

      There's a program on cydia called aptbackup that will do some of what you want, I think. As far as wallpapers, themes, etc, I researched that a bit for the 2.1 upgrade and decided the simplest thing was to write down everything I need to re-install, do a clean refresh to the new firmware and just put everything back on. Didn't really take that long...

      this is my whole point!
      who gives 2 shites about 3.0 without a jailbreak???
      its absolutely pointless

      think back to before the iphone
      you got a phone
      it had software on it.
      that was it
      no updates
      you made it the way you wanted it and you left it alone.
      this update schedule is turnin people crazy!

      Alright, to clear up some confusion, heres what I've done.

      My iPhone 2G was 2.2.1 Unlocked and Jailbroken on T-Mobile.

      I did a clean install of 2.2 (only version I had, and my net crashed after downloading 3.0) and jailbroke it.

      I don't care about the jailbreak, and since I have a 2G the baseband stays the same. I thought it'd stay activated after the update like it has in the past.

      So I updated to 3.0. My phone became unactivated, but T-Mobile was still at the top and I could make calls though the emergancy call screen.

      I tried downgrading with iTunes 8.2, but got an error

      I tried it on my sister's computer with 8.0.2 and successfully downgraded to 2.2

      So, we must wait until jailbreak if you're using T-Mobile

      how did you keep your activation with a tmobile sim?
      you must have had an active at$t sim to get it activated.

      Okay..look! You've asked that there be no "n00b bashing", and I will do my best to not "bash" here. However, I really think I need to take this opportunity to take advantage of this "teaching moment".

      I think this is a perfect example of what has tatoojack all fired up. In the very FIRST line of your post, you state "I have read this entire thread in and out and have yet to come by a couple of questions:". However, I really take issue with this. And the reason for this is that, a mere FOUR pages back, on Page 13, Post #187, the very FIRST question that you asked, I know that cydia and all jailbroken apps won't back up in itunes, is there a way to back them up from another program?" was answered in GREAT detail. How do I know this? I know this because I am the fool that took the time necessary to answer this question for somebody else ALREADY one time today, and in great length I might add. And I guess it begins to grind on people after a while when they do take the time to answer peoples questions here, then have somebody come along and say they've read and searched everywhere and come up with nothing, only to have the precise answer they are looking for a mere few pages back in the exact thread they are asking the same question in again.

      Was that nice enough?

      that was absolutely beautiful!

      not to mention aptbackup and a couple other apps like it have been extensively discussed on here months ago.

      like i said in previous posts.
      people are lazy and only read the news page.
      no one searches the site. they search this thread.
