  • 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!

      Like stated above... there is NO WAY to downgrade your firmware at this time because your baseband has been updated. You are STUCK at 2.2 and will most likely have to purchase a new Universal SIM (or whatever you have) once they come out with an update for compatibility. Good luck on that one.

      Is your iPhone unlocked or just jailbroken? I am asking for my own reference.

      what part of "dont upgrade your phone until the dev team says so" didn't you understand? You're just going to have to wait until the dev team releases a new quickpwn. It's your own fault, you just have to suffer the consequences now

      well i don't live in the states i live in Lebanon and i'm therefore much less exposed to iphone news as much as u guys, and i didn't hear anything about the possibility of the 3g locking up cause i thought that turbosim made it safe from that.. anyway that's all i'm saying about that... it happened and i wish it didn't making us feel worse isn't gonna accomplish anything

      keep your head up and your fingers crossed! It shouldnt be that long before the quickpwn, especially since there wasn't in maaaaaaaajor changes. Everyone in the forum has had to a downgrade at some point or another for being way too anxious or using a method that didn't work out as well as we'd hope.

      anyone else having trouble downloading podcasts? I am on wi-fi. I pick a podcast. It does a little graphic showing that it went to the download button on the bottom right. When I hit download, it is just blank. And then iTunes store remains kind of buggy till I exit - where there is no evidence of a downloading/downloaded podcast.

      anybody else getting this?

      Currently updating my phone now.
      Has the status bar while upgrading always been on the iPhone screen?
      I've never noticed that before.
      If it's new, that's a good update especially since the 1st gen iPhone would always lock up while jailbreaking and what not and I would have no idea.

      When you get an sms and it says only "new message".. that happens when you go to setting, general, passcode lock and when you turn Show SMS Preview to the off position. You probably did it once by accident and never realized it and when you updated it got reset.

      only people that really know is the dev team. you'll just have to wait until they release a new quickpwn and see. from now on though, NEVER update your firmware until the dev team says so and a new version of quickpwn's been released.
