  • iPhone 3.0 Beta 4 and iTunes 8.2 Pre-Release.


    Two weeks after iPhone firmware 3.0 beta 3 Apple has released iPhone 3.0 beta 4 (7a300g) to those participating in the iPhone Developer Program. So far what's new in this latest beta is the Store settings pane is now functioning. Once you are signed into your iTunes account you can edit your payment settings. Will update this thread as more info from beta 4 comes in.
    • iTunes 8.1.1 restores beta 4 firmware just fine . . . well until the end. Nice error 10. Installing iTunes 8.2 and restoring on beta 4 works fine.
    • After you take a pic you have the option of re-taking.
    • While playing shows if you are connected via some bluetooth (image via macrumors)
    • Tethering already enabled without patching (possibly only if you had it enabled before restoring?). I can't confirm this with my phone. What I can confirm is after loading the hack along with my network update for AT&T tethering does work fine on beta 4.
    • Error 3004 probably means iTunes can't connect to Apple servers to verify you have a dev account. Open port 8080 on your router.
    • New iTunes shows how much time remaining to restore backup.
    • New iTunes syncs voice memos.
    • If you get the pink screen of death try try again to restore via iTunes 8.2. It should work eventually (hopefully). A reboot might solve that too.
    • iTunes 8.2 for windows enables usb tethering (even compatible with beta 3)
    • Copy paste now works in the calculator.

    iTunes 8.2 was also pre-released. Now iTunes checks that you are a registered developer before updating your iPhone. Macrumors is reporting that iTunes 8.2 carries Blue-ray references to Gracenote that could suggest that itunes might support Blueray reading.

    thanks everyone who sent this in

      On beta 3 we were able to edit a system plist that would enable that switch. After the switch was enabled (along with other video recorder options) it would prevent the still camera from running. When beta 4 is jailbroken, i will be able to make the same change and bring up the toggle. I doubt it but hopefully this time all is functional

      Thought I would try and post a speed test done on a fresh Beta 4 tethered connection.

      That's confusing
      When you tether shouldn't it be using your wireless connection? In which case whouldn't the result show cellularlike this


      rather than cable like this

      That is strange. You are right, I would think it would still show the cellular network. Maybe he didn't have his wifi turned off?

      I'm at home this morning where I do have reasonable speeds. At work my 3G connection is faster than the WiFi - but then I do work for a company who's head office is in your home town!

      3.0 Beta 4 is Jailbroken! This is not the official release from Vortex or the Dev team and it only works for the iPhone 3G!
      This is a MMi exclusive! You must be registered with a Dev to upgrade to Beta 4. You can grab the link to the modded quickpwn in the main post of the Firmware 3.0 Beta All Inclusive Jailbroken Awesomeness Thread Enjoy!

      I just tried to install Beta 4 like 10 times and everytime I got the pink screen of death. I even upgrated iTunes to the pre-release 8.2 and rebooted my Vista PC. Restoring to Beta 3 seems to work Ok. Anybody has any idea as of why this isn't working?

      after you got the pink screen did you force a hard reboot?
