    , and
  • 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

      Hey guys. I have a questions in ragards to an unactive 1G phone, 3.0 firmware.

      I updated to beta4 and all seems fine. However, I do not see tethering menu. When I was at beta3, I upload an ipcc file but do not see it there aswell. The beta4 is suppose to have mms(not on 1g phone) and tethering menu enabled without modifying the ipcc file if I am correct.

      I am not seeing the menu is because I don't have an active sim?

      Oh dear. Beta 4 won't flash for me.

      It gets as far as "verifying software" then gives an "error 10" code.

      Hmm. I'm using the 32bit version of iTunes on a 64bit edition of Windows. That's the only thing I'm not doing by the numbers. And I extracted the .ipsw from a .dmg with a shareware program called "TransMac"

      You guys reckon that could have anything to do with it?

      beta 3 has just restored ok.. so something's going on

      My 3G is running great with beta 4. I also uploaded my custom IPCC to get MMS and tethering working. Works like a charm. Only difference I noticed is that when you are turning on the phone now, you get the standard apple logo and then the screen will go blank for about 3 or 4 seconds and then the homescreen comes up or the lockscreen.

      Before, the apple would just disappear and the homescreen would be there.

      Sorry, I got a little shut eye and my PM Box blew up! I have answered all the PMs and if I missed anyone, just send me another PM! If after upgrading you want to enable MMS and tethering you need a custom ipcc. You can find the AT&T on my thread in my signature. I got over 75 people registered last night! If you all are having any problems with beta 4, its best to post in my 3.0 thread. There are many people who are on beta 4 and can answer questions. Good luck everyone!

      once beta 4 is jailbroken, you can do the battery mod to regain the percentage. Jailbreak should come out later today!
