  • 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

      I was in San Antonio today. (in reference to the other San Antonio people)

      Also, I will add this in there. After playing around with the stereo bluetooth in my truck, these are the differences I have seen from the previous build. In Beta 3, the default audio after connection was the built in speaker for the iPhone, now it defaults to the connected device. There still are not controls to change songs, but you can start playback, pause, or stop the iPod features from the stereo, not really that big of a pain when you can double click home and shake it. Overall, the sound quality in Beta 4 seems to be MUCH better, and when you are messing around with other features in the phone it doesn't clip out as much.

      You are on a Mac.

      Step 1: Plug your phone into your computer's USB port.

      Step 2: Launch iTunes if it doesn't do it for you.

      Step 3: Click on your iPhone in the list on the left of your screen.

      Step 4: The button that says check for update, position the mouse over it, press and hold shift & option and click.

      Step 5: Select the file on your computer

      Step 6: Restart your phone and change the settings in his tutorial

      Apple won't bother trying to lock the iPhone 2G again because they can't due to the hardware change needed to lock the iPhone.

      iPhone 2G will never have another baseband update ever, last time was at 1.1.4.

      I'm not seeing the tethering menu after the beta4 update is because I don't have an active sim? I'm currently using it as an itouch. This is a 1G phone btw.
