  • 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!

      you don't think they are refering to now being able to send and recieve other types of email attachments, not that you can send more then one attachment at a time, although this really seems like it should be a simple fix.

      anyways, i still haven't updated so idk.

      so the baseband has been changed and there's no way i can use proxysim again? isn't there a way to just erase the baseband like kiphone used to do? can't i format the iphone like i do with pcs or is it a completely different system?

      i think they are only talking about making more email attachments readable/accessible. Can anyone who has already updated confirm that they can send more than 1 pic from their iphone? We can get this solved really fast.lol

      PS ... what happenned to my EMOJI icons?!?!?!?!

      Currently you can't downgrade a 3G baseband.
      You can downgrade to fw 2.1 but the 2.2 baseband will remain.

      Some proxysims can be updated. If that is the case with yours you will have to wait until and if the manufacture releases an update.

      For the time being you have a nice iPod touch.

      well that depends on what you want to fix. If you want to fix your phone I doubt it. But to get a little anger relief then most likely. Haha.

      Put the iPhone in DFU mode and restore to 2.1

      You will then be able to jailbreak it and use as an iPod.

      Or just wait a few days for a jb solutions for 2.2.
      Again you will be able to use it as an iPod.

      I've heard that ABC is starting to film a new series like "Desperate Housewives" called "Desperate iPhone Upgraders"

      U can join the cast.
      You may make enough $$$ to buy a new iPhone
