  • 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 . . .)

      Is this all really worth all the hassle. I have 3.0.1 with the new carrier settings. My tethering works and my MMS works on both my 16gb Iphone 3G and my wifes 8gb Iphone 3G. So is there anything in the new software worth redoing my whole phone for?

      Based on some of the of the responses, I was wondering if I, with a unlocked/jailbroken 2G iPhone, can update to the new iTunes? will it still work fine with OS 3.0. Secondly, with the new update, and still waiting for a jailbreak/unlock, what apps will i lose and is there a way to not lose any apps?

      Just read the post above me.. My MMS works fine. Will I have to redo everything?

      anyone tested pwnage tool 3.01 to build a custom 3.1 WITHOUT the baseband update?
      if u check the devteam blog, it almost seems they are saying pwnage tool already has the ability to make a custom 3.1 without updating the baseband
      meaning ultrasn0w will still work.

      i have an intel macbook and a 3Gs.
      maybe i will be the guinea pig!

      and ALL the ipod links to 3.1.1 are broken.

      Does this update add the camera icon (MMS) to "messages" app or do we need to wait for an update on the 25th for that?

      ^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
      Did you just upgrade through iTunes as you normally would? or did you do a shift+restore or one of those other tricks?

      I'm sorry for the stupid question guys.. but will we lose the cydia apps if we upgrade?
      Does BB's AptBackup app actually work? and automatically redownloads all the cydia apps after an upgrade and new jailbreak?
      I'm gonna wait regardless for Musclenerds status updates on what to do and how to do things right.

      Anyone have the AT&T 4.5 carrier file? My phone stayed at 5.0, even after a restore.

      keep your 5.0, I kept mine and my MMS started working after the update. I was on the 3.1 beta and it didn't work until after I updated to the official release.

      Ok im jb and unlocked and i don't really have anything on my phone of importance, but i don't like anyone having access to my private info and what not...so how do i turn this off? is this genius app thing is that with the 3.1 update or with itunes 9? also quick question is there really any sugnificant updates with this 3.1? i have a 3g and it seems most important things with the update revolves around the 3GS, am i wrong?

      If you aren't on ATT or a factory unlocked phone they won't honor your warranty anyway.

      It didn't. A co-worker updated his phone and the icon was not present.
