  • 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/

      My upgrade just finished and so far everything's fine.

      I too was wondering about the cartoon figure when my phone started restoring. I thought I was the only one who got that. Odd...

      it is a custom restore logo installed by the pwnage 2.0 software.
      shows how little you know about the iphone

      if there was a pwnage out that could make a custom 3.0, we would all be doin it silly. thats y we are waiting on the devteam.
      genius!
      you should work for apple!
      anyway, if your phone is not activated all you will have is the slide to make emergency call screen!
      so go on ahead and rush the update and then come back on here and piss and moan like everyone else about how ur phone dont work or your cydia apps are gone or you cant get your appstore apps.

      it is getting so old and pathetic.

      a world of children raising children,
      this is what we get. a bunch of impatient crybabies!

      i do think this site allows the OP to make it seem as if it is ready to go and safe, then everyone reads the first post only and jumps right in.
      not cool!
      as you can see by all the noobs asking the same question over and over.

      if you don't know what you are doing then the common sense approach would be to read all the instructions and the NOT UPDATE UR PHONE UNTIL YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY SURE WHAT YOU ARE DOING!! WHICH WILL BE WHEN THE DEVS RELEASE THEIR TOOLS AND THEIR IS A GUIDE UP! And lastly DO NOT tell other people what to do or not do especially when you have no idea!

      If you would read something other than the first post, jump right into your phone with not a clue what you are doing, and then cry to us to help you fix something YOU did while we all are saying to WAIT! you would understand.
      and don't feel sorry for me.
      my iphone works great and will continue to because i have the mental ability to follow directions and listen to others mistakes instead of thinkin i am sooooo smart and bricking my phone.

      so enjoy your ipod touch until friday.
      and good luck when the official release comes out.
      lets hope you can figure that out on your own!

      WHY are you all attacking the one person trying to save you all a bunch of headaches?

      you really think you can do the jailbreak without the devs official tool?
      fine!!!
      where is the download link for your tool?
      don't have one??
      really????
      so then why in the he!! are you all trying to jump into 3.0 when you can't do CRAP with it until the devs release pwnage???

      it just dont make sense.

      this happens every time new FW is released.
      everyone updates and then cries until the devs save them!

      get a clue!

      I could get used to being back in jail My stock 3.0 install is sooo much smoother than it was when it was jailbroken. Such a shame, I keep forgetting I don't have SBSettings, I miss it already!

      So who's liking 3.0 so far? I can't beleive that I still can't get onto the app store. Apple are taking a beating, hopefully it will knock sense into them!

      Thank you tattoojack!!!
      Too many noobs don't read, I never posted when I was a noob back in Jan 08 lol. Four months later I started posting!

      I'll get new iPhone or MacBook on friday so I really can't be bothered upgrading my 2G. Besides I got sooo much pressure because of exams, I forgot all about 3.0, I've been recently obsessed with trying to find a cheap MacBook Pro, no luck so far

      Where exactly are you getting your information? I never once told anyone here to do anything. I merely explained my personal experience in upgrading my phone. I don't believe anyone on this site is really following this mysterious lead you've convinced youself that I must be creating. None of my posts have been about making or influencing anyone to do anything, simple a relay of what I've done on my own which I'm more than entitled to do.

      Furthermore, jailbreaking my phone is nothing more than an added feature for me. I'm fine with my phone being "unjailbroken" and can wait until Friday or whenever the jailbreaking software is released. Unlike some people here, I'm not scratching my eyes out because I don't have my Cycorder or MakeItMine. I'm perfectly fine so far with the way things are.

      I know your upset now. Just relax son.
