  • 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/

      Probably the most informative post in this entire thread.

      That being said.... How come I can't update my Motorola Flip phone to the new 3.0 firmware and why is it when I plug my USB cable onto my penis iTunes doesn't recognize it as an apple device? Why can't I QuickPwn my nads and get them to play my stereo music via bluetooth?
      Before I do this upgrade, do I HAVE to have an iPhone or can I just wish I had one and use all of the new features anyway?
      What color is the new firmware so I'll know I have it when I see it?

      people are lazy and only read the news page.
      no one searches the site. they search this thread.

      What about those who are already on the 3.0 beta? Is that the same instructions as the GM? I hit update and it says I'm current. I'm running beta 5 if that matters. I'm just wondering if I do the restore option, what happens when 3.1 comes out. Am I ever going to be able to use the update button again?

      apples servers are slammed because there are about 2 million people who have no idea what jailbreak is (literally, not referring to the name under your login id) all updating to 3.0
      then you have another 2 million people trying to update that actually want jailbreak, EVEN THO THEY SHOULD BE WAITING!!!! relieving the servers of some bandwidth and allowing this to go alot smoother.

      i mean think about it this way

      what if all of us are trying to update and apple is slooooooow
      the dev team are trying as well so they can test pwnage/quikpwn
      THEY CANT GET IT TO US BECAUSE THEY CANT TEST PROPERLY,
      thanks to all the noobs lockin up the servers.
      so i would imagine, as soon as we all stop maxin out itunes store, they will finish their work, we wil haz pwnage, and everybodyz haz happiness!!!

      Read the first page of the thread before asking a question...

      Well, I did read the first page and I am not new to jailbreaking at all. I just wasnt sure about the rumors thats been goin on and I wasnt sure if the jailbreak for the Betas would work for the final version of 3.0
