  • 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/

      u know, i never thought of it like that?
      i was assuming someone would have to make an app in cydia for each feature to cross over, but man how sweet would it be if this were possible.
      like how the last pwnage did not allow the 3G to get the baseband update, they made all the 3G custom firmware out of 3Gs firmware customized to run on 3G.

      you really mite be on to something!

      my translation= the devs are gonna have to fix something apple F'd up (not intentionally created to stop us from unlock/jailbreak) before their tool will function.

      you are partially correct.
      another post did comment on itunes 8.2
      and the devteam blog aswell.
      they said

      This update is one of those that incidentally breaks QuickPwn and PwnageTool. It doesn’t seem like an anti-jailbreak. But nonetheless, it will break your ability to re-run QuickPwn or PwnageTool’s dfu-entry.

      Because this update isn’t a deliberate anti-jailbreak measure, it’s easily fixed in our tools. But we really don’t want to update our tools until 3.0 is out, so please don’t update to 8.2 if you think you’ll need to rejailbreak your device.
      that has changed now since they have found the problem in 8.2 and fixed their pwnage/quikpwn tools to work.
      it was really just your phone would not be recognized in DFU mode.
      almost the same problem as the 10.5.6 usb DFU issue but this time it was in itunes, not the OS update.

      you will be fine, but as i have said for the past 20 pages,
      there is NO harm in waiting.
      i still got 8.1.1

      *Sigh* I'll have to continue

      i love how you came on here and had nothing to contribute to this thread and did nothing but slander the dev team

      Slander is the use of lies and hateful words to ruin the reputation of a person or group. I, in no point in my first post, spread lies and use hateful language towards the dev-team. The angle I used was sarcasm, which was clearly not understood by you.

      My original post (again):

      It would have been nice if the dev-team understood the definition of the phrase "shortly after."

      Awesome, now I don't have any jailbroken customization and barely any time left in the day to get them all back. Thanks dev-team, thanks.


      then turn around and use your online thesaurus to make yourself look like a smart guy.

      I didn't have to use an online thesaurus in my post, I actually have a vocabulary, and I would never need to use one to make myself look like a "smart guy" in this argument, you have already done that for me.

      you're not.
      we all know it.


      Again, you make more groundless claims without understanding your own words. You've said "we", meaning the entirety of everyone on this forum, know that I as a person, am not a "smart guy", that being the case, I would be famous on the site, knowing the meaning of famous is "known by everyone, or well known." This argument will pass, and nobody will remember it later on.

      otherwise you wouldn't have jacked your iphone and had anything to cry about in the first place!

      I told you I didn't jack my phone, did you even read my last post replying to yours? Just for you, I will quote myself again:

      "My phone also works, it just isn't jailbroken, and I don't need your help to fix something that isn't broken."

      I'm quite sure I explained it as bluntly as I could.

      my entire post from the start has been WAIT FOR THE DEVS!
      thats all!


      Your posts have consisted of horribly worded statements condemning my post concerning my annoyance with the dev-team for not releasing a jailbreaking method today. All of these ignorant sentences produced from you are a constance of words which have absolutely nothing to do with any solid argument, one that has something to do with the matter being discussed and not an illogical attack on the other person. If it had said "wait for the devs", there would be no argument, as your post would have been just a nudge in the right direction, rather than an poorly-worded slew of arrogance.

      you guys are all pissy cause ya broke your precious! not me!

      You seem to be rather "pissy" (as you have called it) that I said something negative about your precious dev-team.

      I can't stress this enough, my phone is not broken, just merely unjailbroken.

      A note to other people reading this that are not TattooJack. My apologies to you, I know the forum is not intended for conversations of this manner.

      but everyones actions are not acceptable when used against them?
      besides, none of anything i said was directed at you till you made your useless comment!
      you are just instigating in a conversation that had nothing to do with you

      Yeah, I agree. I´ve been around from thebeginning and I also want to confirm that what is said really is what it is. Might post studid questions too.
      Poetic_Folly did say:
      "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"
      Phantomo on page 29 pointed this out.

      And it´s Friday tomorrow.... Lol

      Cheers and thanks for the good work, Dev-Team

      Thanks ddfilms, I just "Update" it and everything went fine. The iPhone remains activated and unlocked after the update and I am on OS3.

      you must start with an unlocked and jailbroken iPhone, If you are not on At&T. the UPDATE button will UPDATE you to 3.0 without the jailbreak but will remain unlocked and activated. When the Dev-Team releases the new pwnage you can re jailbreak it then. this just gets you up and running with 3.0 till the jailbreak comes out.
