  • 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 . . .)

      Can anyone confirm/disconfirm if upgrading to 3.1, then using redsn0w still works. It worked from 3.0 to 3.0.1, but does anyone know if it works from 3.0 to 3.1?

      This means that if you update, your baseband WILL get updated and you WILL LOSE your unlock.
      There is no hack for new baseband, so you will be stuck.

      Just another useless warning that many will choose to ignore, then proceed to fill msg boards everywhere with complaints as a result of their impatience. Let's do some cognitive behavior modification by not responding or even acknowledging posts of these children.
      How about the 1st Gen iPhone (2G)? Can it be upgraded through iTunes? I'm running ver. 3.0 on it now and really don't want to screw it up, it's my wife's phone. If ok to upgrade... what would the right procedure be for the 2G phone?

      Well...just to test (which I knew wasnt going to work) I tried jailbreaking the 2G 3.1 with redsnow using 3.0 firmware seemed like it was going fine as the logo and everything showed up..but when its time for the phone to reboot it just hangs...luckily no restore needed!

      ^2G phones are fine...i got the 2G and i updated to 3.1 using iTunes..
      Version: 3.1 (7C144)
      VersionModem Firmware:04.05.04_G
      ..as opposed to 3G which is 05.11.07
