  • 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/

      welcome to the forums, and since you are new here, i don't think you have the right to tell anyone what to do.
      this is a free forum and free speech is still allowed, with exception.
      if noobs can post 1500 posts asking the same stupid question than i can post 10 saying,
      "WAIT FOR THE DEV TEAM!!! YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY!!!! YOU WILL BE SORRY HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE TO WAIT TILL FRIDAY TO USE UR IPHONE OR EVEN WORSE YOU BRICK YOUR IPHONE

      so once everyone on here learns to read and search, and these threads go from 20 pages of the same question to 5 pages of useful feedback, i will no longer feel the need to post.

      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!
      Chill out dude, if people did a mistake then its their fault and no need to be such an ***** to them

      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
      craigslist
      i get em for 500-1000 all day

      ^^I'm in UK btw and tried craigslist but no cheaper than buying from Apple with the free iPod Touch, same with ebay, so I might have to shell out 1500(~$3000) for the MacBook I want, damn UK and the ridiculously over priced stuff especially 3GS and MacBooks.

      Thing is that sooooo many noobs post the same question over and over again, it just clogs up the forum and then will take you ages to search for what you want and no one wants to do that so they'll post the same question again, therefore making it even more difficult.

      this type of post whips noobs into a foamin at the mouth frenzy!
      they all start pluggin in their iphones and updating away!
      you don't say that you are on at&t or not or if you care about jailbreak or any details.

      your post to noobs= ITS ALL GOOD, GET R' DONE!

      thats all i am sayin, so you can calm down.

      Just my 2 cents. i dont ever post here, but im not a retard and i read

      I called att and told them i was a dev blah blah and that i needed to activate the MMS feature on my phone, she asked if i got the proper software from apple and then i said yes and that apple said i just need to have att finish the mms settings. She said ok, took 10 minutes on the phone and it was placed on my line.

      Now my only question is, can someone point me in the right direction as to what i need to update on my official 3.0 firmware to add the ATT app settings or what ever its called?

      Thanks.

      LOL I hear ya, A.T I think I saw the complaints several times earlier today of "where's the damn MMS?" or "where's the video recorder?" either in this thread or some other thread here on MMI, and I could only shake my head and say "UGH!"
