  • Firmware 2.2 Released

    iPhone Firmware Version 2.2 was released this morning, and as usual it is recommended you do not apply it until the Dev Team gets Pwnage tool and Quickpwn updated. Some of the new features include are:

    Street View For Google Maps
    Ability To Turn Auto-Correct Off
    Ability to download Podcasts over the air.
    Updated Safari Menu Bar
    Walking And Bus Directions in Maps.
    No copy or paste OR MMS
    More to come as we see them...

    ALSO: iTunes 8.0.2 Is out as well (Thanks to nickh for sending that in)
    Onslaught of Direct Links ahead!

    1st Gen Touch: Here
    2nd Gen Touch: Here
    1st Gen iPhone: Here
    iPhone 3G: Here

    Edit Poseidon: For 1st generation users that just can't wait for the updated pwnage/quickpwn... you can use the UPDATE feature iTunes and retain the unlock (no baseband update) and activation. You WILL lose your 3rd party apps and jailbreak.

    The jailbreak for 2.2 is on its way soon according to the dev team - they just have to test to make sure it works fine, but they're fairly sure the Pwnage method is unchanged in 2.2.

    If you are using a proxySIM (YES SIM, Universal SIM, etc) for your 3G unlock then DO NOT upgrade. The baseband gets upgraded and you proxySIM will NO LONGER WORK!

    If you accidentally upgrade your 3G iPhone to firmware 2.2 there is NO WAY to downgrade because of the baseband update. You're STUCK.

    admin edit: Remember, if you're jailbroken, DO NOT UPDATE quite yet!

      nope i had restored to 2.1 and jailbroke the same week i did 2.2 had been released and 2.2 does run faster. and for me the battery seems to be better. i use my iphone at work to listen to music for 8 hours and on 2.2 i have way more battery life than before and everything runs smoother.

      Hi Guys,

      after coming from a life of nokia’s and moving to Apple its hard!

      Im not a very technical person and iv just about managed to get used to my jailbroken iphone 3G on firmware 2.1. This jailbroke was done by a friend so i just picked it up from him and strted using it.

      Iv just about got used to the phone started using its features after visiting forums etc etc.

      Now i hear that new firmware is out which is the 2.2 which obviously is the latest with bug fixes and i wana update this but because my phone is jail broke and i have loadsa apps, cydia, installer, winterboard how do i keep everything on the phone and update to 2.2

      Please could someone help as iv been googling this for weeks and scared that if i do it myself i wil end up loosing all data on the phone.

      Hope that makes sense.

      my add is [email protected] (hope someone can mail me in simple english lol)


      is there anyone that can walk me thru the process. iv been on this constantly and nothing makes sense.

      Wat is a QuickPWN?
      How do i keep my stuff and upgrade to 2.2?


      Thanks guys

      check this out...

      As per CameraBag update:

      "iPhone OS 2.2 introduced an issue where images saved at resolutions of 800 or higher can appear blurry when viewed on the Iphone. These images are not actually blurry when saved to your computer. We have contacted Apple about the issue and expect them to update iPhone OS to fix it, as this affects all photo applicatons"

      instead on focusing on stuff we need like MMS and Copy&Paste they gotta focus on fixing their screw ups.
