  • iPhone Firmware 3.1 Live for Download


    If you jailbreak we suggest you wait for a solution. If you unlock do not update yet. Especially 3G and 3GS users!
    read the above as a warning not to update. don't update. updating is not a good idea. if i were you i wouldn't update. etc.

    iPhone 3.1 features:
    • Genius recommendations for Applications (Yes, it tells you what apps YOU want)
    • iTunes 9 support
      - Genius Mixes
      - Organize your apps directly in iTunes
      - Improved syncing options for music, movies, TV shows, podcasts and photos
      - iTunes U content organization
    • Redeem iTunes Gift cards, codes and certificates in the App Store (previously only worked in the iTunes app)
    • Display iTunes account credits in the App Store and iTunes Store
    • Browse and download ringtones wirelessly from the iTunes Store (for $1.29 a pop. rip off report.)
    • Save video from Mail and MMS into Camera Roll (of course MMS has to actually be working first. Too lame)
    • Better iPhone 3G Wi-Fi performance when Bluetooth is turned on
    • Remotely lock iPhone with a passcode via MobileMe (now THAT is neat)
    • Use Voice Control on iPhone 3GS with Bluetooth headsets (about damn time Apple - stop slacking)
    • Paste phone numbers into Keypad (what took ya'll so long?)
    • Option to use Home button to turn on Accessibility features on iPhone 3GS (w00t w00t inverted screen with the touch of a button)
    • Warn when visiting fraudulent websites in Safari (anti-phishing)
    • Improved Exchange calendar syncing and invitation handling
    • Fixes issue that caused some app icons to display incorrectly (and i thought the compass was youtube this whole time . . .)

      Doesn't look like much worth upgrading for? Pretty much just new way's for Apple to make more money.

      Haha - yeah, guess it was. I've had every iPhone version, about 2 dozen WinMo phones, a Palm Pre (for two weeks - just to play with it) and even a few Nokias, so I've been around the block a bit. I lurk more now, post every now and then.

      I guess I just needed something interesting to say.

      you'll still have to wait most likely. mine worked with the updated carrier file but apparently it's not normal.

      I currently have a 3GS on ATT with no plans to need unlocking any time soon. It seems to me I should be fine to upgrade now. At some point the Dev Team will almost have to come up with a solution for the new baseband since there will be phones that will have that version out of the box. My only real concern is being able to unlock my current phone when it comes time to sell or pass it on. A friend bought my 2G and is using it unlocked and without a data plan (wifi only) on ATT. She didn't want to have to sign a new contract for a used phone.

      So, does anyone see a reason not to upgrade if I won't need to unlock for almost 2 years.

      I may want to Jailbreak the 3GS at some point but that isn't a function of the baseband as far as I know.

      Wait...I just re-read the main post. Does updating to 3.1 disable the ability to jailbreak? Or is it just the ability to unlock?

      Ok managed to get a friend with faster internet.

      Upgraded to 3.1
      put in a NON ATT sim card. I used my European SIM (Apple compatable) and whala MMS apeared. Enabled it and swapped the card. Yup still working. If the JS/unlock comes out before the 25th than this is a option that any one can use once you unlock the phone. Or wait until the 25th... Did I mention that tether works as well?... :-)

      Yes they will. I didn't have an ATT account or even a receipt for the 32g 3GS I own and they exchanged it no questions asked. They just use your serial number to look up the warranty. I just stuck the original ATT sim card in there and took it in.

      when you bring your own "used" phone to a carrier you do not sign a new contract. the only reason you sign up for a contract is so you can get the subsidized pricing on a new phone.

      I like when new firmware is released. It is fun to see the comments of the people that upgrade but then wonder about why the JB is gone. Dev's blog is just funny.

      I will be waiting and hopefully they have it up soon, if not no big deal I can wait. I also need to grab my files before doing an upgrade for the 3GS. I had them for the first 3GS but had to get it replaced for dust under the screen and never got around to capturing them for the new phone.

      I agree. I'm over there reading what people are saying and just laughing. Even I knew to uncheck the auto update when I first plugged my phone into iTunes when I got it home...

      ...my fiance failed to do so...which meant I had to re-jailbreak her phone a few weeks ago. Needless to say, I made sure this wouldn't happen again.
