  • 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

      $10 and I will provide direct download links as well from my personal ftp server.

      PM me for details. I saw a bunch of people asking around. I have about 30 spots left.

      I'll accept PayPal payments, and I'm quick to add, as well as provide my links

      Anybody tried A2DP? I tried it with beta 2 but the volume control didn't work and my headphones don't have volume management so it was awfully loud.

      The title pretty much explains it.

      On a non-jailbroken ihpone 3g:
      1) all apps work (so far)
      2) Skype DOES NOT work anymore over 3G (tried to downgrade to previous version of skype since I had the latest on, still does NOT work). It was fun while it lasted.

      < installed beta 3, Jailbroke it with both versions of QuickPwn (first with Icy, then Cydia), then installed x-IPA and we're back in business! This is a great update to 3.0

      On Beta 2, wasn't able to play a MMS video received. Got an error about the format not being supported. On Beta 3, the same video file in the MMS plays correctly.

      All I did was update to beta 3 and my mms was working flawlessly so I wanted to know If it was just a fluke, I restarted my phone and sure enough it won't send them anymore

      I just updated to beta 3 and everything is working fine

      Faster and more stable, and mms seem to send quicker too

      All my apps still work.

      I held shift and clicked on update rather than restore, everything seems fine.

      i have searched and read a lot about my problem and it seems like no one in this thread has had this problem. I upgraded to 3.0 b2 and when itunes comes up there is the iphone on the left and then just a blank screen on the right where i should be able to sync and do all that stuff. i thought maybe it would be fixed in 3.0 b3 but it is still the same. I dont really care because i have my numbers stored other places but its a pain to type them all in again. Anyone have any insight for helping me that would be awesome. Thanks

      i dont seem to have a time where i can take 3 hours away from texting ppl. or i end up having to work. im going to try doing the 3.0 b3 without jailbreak. as it seems to be causing the problem from what i have read. And ppl this realy isnt the thread to be asking devs to ask you. go look somewhere else. stealth have you tried to fresh install b3 without jailbreak? see if that helps out.

      AT&T. I put my iPhone SIM in a Blackberry Bold and sent MMS messages with it. Took around 30 minutes before it worked. Put the SIM back in the iPhone and reloaded the OS with Beta 2. It's been working for over a week. Has continued to work after rebooting and upgrading to Beta 3.
