  • iPhone 3.0 Beta 3 Seeded. New SDK Too!


    Apple is keeping up with their firmware 3.0 beta release cycle of every two weeks. This evening Apple seeded iPhone 3.0 beta 3 firmware (build 7A280f) to those registered in the iPhone Developer Program.

    Things to note:
    • Spotlight now saves last search.
    • “Applications targeting devices prior to iPhone OS 3.0 beta cannot be tested in this seed. This bug is intended to be fixed in a future seed.”
    • MMS and tethering still possible with modified carrier bundle.
    • Speed improvements.
    • Youtube works.
    • iPod icon aligned.
    • You can change the homepage you want to go to on double tap.
    • Parental controls add In-App Purchase and Location options.
    With the beta 3 firmware Apple also released a new version of the SDK with the following seed notes:
    New in Xcode IDE 3.1 and later
    • The assistant interface has been completely revamped, making it easier to create “New Project”, “New Target”, and “New File” resources. This release of Xcode also adds new assistant templates for both Mac OS X and iPhone OS applications.
    • A new Overview toolbar item lets you see and set the project’s active Target, Configuration, Executable, Architecture, and SDK with a single control.
    • It is now possible to set a global “override” SDK as the Active SDK, making it easy to test the build of your entire project against a different platform.
    • New interface shortcuts have been added to the Build Setting inspectors making it easy to set the desired compiler, architectures, and SDKs
    • You can now add Libraries and Frameworks directly into the Target window and relate them to the project’s SDK.
    • The Xcode UI now allows you to designate a library or framework as weak-linked, to support building with newer SDKs while targeting older OS versions.
    • New “Edit all in scope” option within the Xcode source editor makes it easy to update all instances of the selected symbol within the current scope of code.
    • You can now have conditional build settings assigned for any combination of architecture and SDK.
    • LLVM GCC 4.2 is a new optional compiler based on the LLVM.org open source project. LLVM GCC 4.2 provides an LLVM-based back-end optimizer using the GCC 4.2 front-end parser. This compiler is both source and binary compatible with GCC 4.2 and requires the Mac OS X 10.5 SDK or “Current OS” SDK.
    • GCC 4.2 is a new optional compiler with stricter C and C++ language enforcement, security enhancements, performance optimizations, and bug fixes over GCC 4.0. Requires the Mac OS X 10.5 SDK or “Current OS” SDK
    New in Interface Builder 3.1
    • New drag & drop functionality allows easily re-parenting objects with the normal drag gesture
    • The document outline view has been enhanced to support full drag re-ordering.
    • A new string table interface allows localizers to make quick text changes across documents.
    • Generates XIB files that are more diff friendly while retaining full backwards compatibility with Interface Builder 3.0.
    • Now supports previewing image resource content in Carbon controls.
    New in Dashcode
    • You can now use Dashcode to create web aiPhone, as well as Dashboard widgets.
    thanks Andy for the tip

      I've tested all the Apps I had installed on 2.1.1 and everything still works on 3.0 beta 3. I haven't come across any major differences other than the quality of BT Stereo and the camera. The speed seems to be slightly enhanced, and the phone hasn't crashed yet for a memory failure.

      Coming from Beta 2 I just updated, are you wondering if you restore from 2.X?

      No... I was wondering if I could restore from 3.0Beta2... I know when I installed Beta & Beta2 that I had to setup as a new phone because restoring was causing YouTube connection to fail... I'm curious if people are having the same problem with 3.0Beta3

I only have my 3 devices on there.
      Any chance you can add me as well, I basically want to look through the changes in UIKit and SDK, also wanted to experiment a bit with jailbroken version of 3.0 so I can prepare my MS plugins for the transition, I'm a developer, not just interested in using 3.0 but I'm 16 and no money , please pm if you can

      if 20 people join in we can all buy an account for 5 bucks each.

      we then will have 80 spots left and if we sell those for 5 bucks we will all have $400 together and if we split it it'll be 20 bucks each so we can make up to 15 dollars each.

      [{(100-20) x 5}./. 20]-5 = 15
      80 400 20

      Fogive me if this was already answered, but can you put this in activated phones? I remember reading in the SDK that it is on intended for testing purpose and not for live phones. Now the say
      • iPhone SDK for iPhone 3.0 beta is for development purposes only. This software should only be installed on devices dedicated exclusively for iPhone 3.0 beta application development.
      • Devices updated to iPhone 3.0 beta can not be restored to earlier versions of iPhone OS . Devices will be able to upgrade to future beta releases and the final iPhone OS 3.0 software.
      Will putting this on my phone makes it so i can not make and sent calls?

      yes you can do this on active/live phones
      when you upgrade to 3.0 you phone becomes inactive
      the only way it reactivates is if your on a dev list

      this is for iphone only
      not ipod touch
      ipod touch users dont need a dev account
      just d/c from the internet when you loading 3.0 onto the touch to bypass the check
