  • 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

      no MMS for me Tethering works for USB and Bluetooth, as where before just bluetooth worked and it was very unstable. So runs smoothly for me

      If I didn't use YellowSn0w I'd get beta 4 just for that feature...

      I'm just installing beta 4... I was very pleased with beta 2, and I was skipping over beta 3. But just last week my phone went into 'plug to itunes' screen and disconnected from carrier. I went totally WTF, and after connecting to iTunes it just said 'Beta expired'.

      So I was forced to update to beta 3 (Backups! remember to make backupa always before updating... I did forgot and lost couple pictures I toke on that morning).

      Every time I need to update it is really scary, because I'm onto developer via another developer.

      I was thinking of getting developer license my own, if I just could get some friends to join my devel "team". Also I haven't looked if that 99$ is just once, or annual.

      Ps. Just got beta4 installed, it works ... Also backup was restored as it should... (install iTunes beta, backuped phone, updated firmware, restored backup).

      Once your UDID is listed on a dev's account you are fine to update. Betas expire 10 days after the new one is released which is normally about 4 days before the next one...

      Yes it does, I started at 4:30 in the morning and it now says about 21 mins left and it's 7:06am. They definitely don't make it very convenient. I can only imagine how long it's going to take to put all my songs and videos back on it. it's gotta be better then beta 3 though, the call pad was pissing me off every other time i went to dial a number and didn't see no call button.
