  • 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

      ive give you some pointers
      i dont like telling people how to do things coz u will never learn
      get your *.ipcc file rename it to *.zip then extract the folders
      then open up the *.plist files and start editing
      its not hard

      just use google
      if u had a working ipcc from beta 2 it will still work now
      you just cant go in and change the settings via the phone
      just use google and search for a *.ipcc
      ie virgin.ipcc
      vodafone.ipcc
      what ever carrier you use

      well see, the thing is, i used to be able to edit the cellular data network from my phone. It's just that NOW with 3.0 beta 3, it keeps crashing when I tap that button. I dont know what I am doing wrong.

      like i said before
      for some reason with the new beta you cant change any thing in the cellular data networking section
      it all neeeds to be done via a *.ipcc file
      its nothing you have done its apple that has done this
      the only way you can edit this information now is via a *.ipcc file
      you can no longer directly modify this information via the phone

      on another note none of my app store apps are working
      only got a few on there
      google maps
      palingo
      au weather
      none of them work
      and i no it says they dont work in the beta info
      ive just seen reports of ppl saying there apps are working

      Most of my apps are working but some or should I say the majority of them have no sound. The only app working with sound is Let's Golf.

      Restored the phone now everything is working just fine. I haven't jailbroken the phone though since most apps don't work correctly.

      its not the network tab we can get into that
      its the cellular data network section
      most phone company's have this hidden by default

      im just going to restore the phone and just not jail break it
      i only jail break to add rename so i can rename some of my apps
      and since MMS is now on the phone and landscape keyboard ive almost lost my need for jail break

      all your apps are working now? Are you saying that the jailbreak is causing the app store apps to crash?
    1. FramedTrash's Avatar

      yep pretty much
      no jailbreak = all work
      jailbreak = only homebrew works

      buttttttt
      i used both version of quickpwn
      the cydia & the icy
      and i believe the cydia one copys across a mobileinstaltion file
      that could be the cause of the problem

      i used the icy version of quickpwn 30-2 and they are not working

      the updated version of quick pwn is going to be released soon. hopefully that fixes the problems
