  • 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 . . .)

      You can always get carrier settings updates through iTunes which update your settings almost instantly. I got a couple over the first two weeks when first got my phone (I'm in the UK), they take no time at all and don't ruin your jailbreak.

      @jkfox.. The issue with Apple is business .vs. End User. Apple chooses to market to the End User. While we've see many improvements like c/p, tethering, many useful (almost a requirement) common features are missing. IE: SIM write support, duplicate contact, variable reminders, full B/T, etc.

      We love the new fangled capabilities, but new gadegts usually ADD to common industry-standard functionality.

      Apple takes a different approach ... which usually means the business user is sol.

Am I missing something or r they just going to release like a 3.1.1 on sept 25th?
      yes your missing the part that MMS has nothing too do with the update since 3.0 has mms... its at&t that you need too wait for. since i have 3.0 and i have MMS but its cause i am in Canada and rogers At&T canada has MMS.

      when you plug your phone into windows, use the option to "import" pictures into your photo library (or use itunes).

      Then with itunes, sync your contacts with windows contacts, email with outlook, bookmarks with IE and anything else you want to save. For videos, use SSH to copy them over, assuming that you use cycorder (or a similar application).

      As for your text messages, I'm pretty sure that when itunes "backs up" your iphone, before syncing it, it will save all of your txt's with that backup. Once you restore/upgrade it, use that backup to get all your info back onto your device

      People should not be jailbreakin if they dont understand the process and keep on top of it.

      They should also refrain from posting as nothing can be done.

      While reading a very appreciated, needed, and innovative list of improvements to the iPhone OS, I just couldn't get myself to ignore the pompous arrogant "additions" in blue. It seams like the moderators/owners of this website have lost site at the whole reason they are able to profit from this community, Apple has made it possible. They have made it possible by creating an incredible device, with an incredible OS and set of features. Apple has kept this "community" alive by constantly updating, improving, and further innovating the iPhone and its OS (which no other phone manufacturer has done half as well as Apple).

      Let's all remember that Apple has only been selling cellular telephones for a little over two years. Everyone expects absolute perfection from Apple, and they are pretty damn close. Yes, there are some features that were late in the their arrival, and I understand why people complain (as do I). But, to complain when Apple takes action, and develops/integrates these new features is just too much...

      I hope the moderators don't take this wrong way, I do appreciate what this site has done, and MMi has propagated a lot of development in the jailbreaking, unlocking, and 3rd party app development "world". Just figured I would voice my opinion. Apple bashing has just become far to acceptable...


      What the hell are you talking about? For the record, apple has been building and distributing operating systems for years. They should be able to do a phone right from the start. Its not rocket science and we are on V3...so by now they should be able to get it right.

      The blue quotes are not pompous or arrogant...they are to the point. Many of us are just not willing to cut Apple a break at this point.

      BTW...Where are the release notes for this new version. Why aren't you asking about that?

      Personally, I am not interested in new features...I want to know what they fixed first.

      I should be able to expect this information from Apple unless they are really focused on selling new features and not on fixing what DON'T WORK (like most companies seem to do with software).

      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.

      My (Iphone 3G) is acting sooooooooooooooo fast with the 3.1 looks like they did a lotof modification to speed it up.
      now it is about 9 hours with (Mobile me) setup and notification for ( email ) only is ON and my battery still full with no change at all ( the 9 hours through the night without phone calls).
      the only thins i can really confirm comparing to 3.0.1 is the speeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed and regarding APN setting throught (Unlockit - APN Changer for your iPhone) still working for the 3.1 but with one problem with (tethering) IT IS GONE after applying the settings.

      will keep testing today...have a nice day

      when you upgraded your iTouch to 3.1 did you have to activate it through iTunes? It doesn't verify that you didn't purchase the firmware right?

      I've only udated iPhones so im curious about the Touches.

      With the news that 3GS users wont be able to downgrade to 3.0 or 3.0.1 not ever againg, one should think it will be the same for 3G anytime soon, wich means that apple is putting jailbreak comunity against the wall, if you update to 3.1 you will not be able to downgrade, and if 3.1 is not jailbreakeable then it is over... For those 3GS users that updated to 3.1, good luck, for those 3G that updated, downgrade before they hit you and re-jailbreak using 3.0. The rest of us is waiting on the great Dev-Team!

      Always look at the first page of this post. It will be edited when a jail break is available with links to how/when/where/etc.
