  • 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!

      ok i am having a major problem after updating a non-jailbroken/non-unlocked standard iphone. MY PHONE HAS NEVER BEEN JAILBROKEN OR UNLOCKED! but for some reason, after going into itunes this morning to update to 2.2. after the update finished and my iphone restarted, i got an error message saying there was a problem with my SIM card, and it would only allow me to make emergency calls. I have searched for hours everywhere including here and cant seem to find out what i need to do to fix my phone! ive put it into recovery mode and tried to restore it like over 20 times by installing 2.2 from the firmware file which ive downloaded from everywhere i can find to make sure it wasnt the firmware file. I've tried 2.1, but found out after reading on several sites that the broadband update wouldnt allow me to downgrade back to 2.1. it really makes me regret having ever hit that upgrade button because this morning i had a working phone, AND NOW I HAVE A PAPER WEIGHT! please if someone could help me id really appreciate it.

      huh? are you a legit user? i am assuming so because u said your phone has never been unlocked.


      oh and PS. i am really happy with this update. i like the new status bar when restoring, also the new maps is awesome, i also noticed (very minor) but when adding an address to someones name that layout is new as well, or atleast i never noticed it before.

      Whats going on here? It gets all the way to the end, and then it says I haz failed. And in the log it says creating the ipsw

      I have the 2.2 pwnage tool, and fire fox downloaded 2.2 firmware. Whats up here? Does anyone have a finished ipsw they want to send over to me or something? Im jail broken 2.0.2 right now. 3G iPhone

      Thanks,

      I am trying to build a custom .ipsw firmware using Pwnage 2.2 but it is not working. I am prompted "I haz failed" shortly after entering my system password.
      I am using the new Mac book. This never happened on my old Mac book.
      Anyone else?

      EDIT: For those that are getting a "Srry, Ihaz Failed" with a kitty picture when trying to create a custom restore file:

      1) Go to Expert Mode
      2) Under General, increase the root partition to 1000Mb.
      3) Then select "Begin"

      This should keep it from failing.

      WORKS PERFECT NOW

      A strange sidenote to my upgradage...I did quickpwn, everything seems to be fine except I can't change wallpaper! All I get is black. SSHd in and lockbackground.jpg is indeed changing when I change it, just it's not displaying on the unlock screen, or with user wallpaper selected in winterboard.

      any ideas?

      some changes i have noticed:

      updates now update on the old icon instead of making new one then merging.

      appstore updates page now has a update ALL button.

      settings/general/home button now lists Phone Favourites instead of just Favourites

      settings/general/keyboard now has "." shortcut switch

      @orange it is probably an option in winterboard. go through there and scroll through there and see what is check/not checked

      Hmm...
      Thats strange. I have so many problems with this jailbreak allready. Now i thought i had it working but i have this problem.
      I had cydia, installer and some other programs stored in categories before the update.
      I made a backup and updated. Then i put backup back and did a jailbreak. After that i find out Cydia is not showing up, because categories put it hidden, so i cant install anything to unhide it.
      So what i do now is, i restore, activate sim, jailbreak (then cydia is there), install bosspref to unhide cydia after i restore my backup.
      So much work because of that stupid categories program... :-(

      Well, time for another restore then...

      Just did a complete restore, no jailbreak or put a backup back.
      No apps installed and i am running 2.2 on my G3.
      But when i make a call my display doesnt turn off... Anyone knows what can cause this? And better... how to fix it

      i caved...

      i updated :-S

      I will admit that Push is actually working like gangbusters, and all the new features seem to be working...

      However i am really disappointed with streetview :-(

      You have to drop a pin first to determine if you can have have street view in the area, and then you can access it with the little man image when you push the purple pin.

      Would have been nice if they made it more like on Google where you can just see map view with an icon or something.

      Not sure if anyone else has found this or not. If you are on any page other than the first one of your home screen and you hit the home button it returns you to the first page of your home screen.
