  • NEW iPhone firmware seeded - iPhone coming to more countries?


    Our friends over at theiphoneproject.org have gotten ahold of the latest firmware 2.0 build that Apple released (5A240D), and have found some interesting info - SEVEN additional languages are now in the firmware. Among the new additions are ALL of Scandinavia, Korea, and Portuguese. Irish

    This could mean the iPhone has release plans for many additional countries, or of course they COULD just be adding support for additional languages. Looks good for all you international folks, though.

    The new firmware is also a huge increase in size - 200 MB, a 30% increase from its previous 158 MB size in 5A225C. This definitely speaks to an international focus, as the languages are the biggest change in this new firmware, and a 40MB increase in size.

    A closer look at /System/Library/Carrier Bundles/ shows that support for Ireland’s O2 carrier has finally been added, but that aside from the language support for the 7 new countries, Apple has not yet added Carrier Bundles for them, so we can’t really tell which carriers have been chosen by Apple, but we can guess that they will be the ones with the largest customer base in their respective countries.
    For you developers, Apple has also released a new version of the SDK, which now has documentation for the interface builder (!), as well as the Celestial and Foundation frameworks getting updated. Looks like developers are getting a little more love from Apple, after being locked out of their iPhones with the PSOD, heh.

    This is all good news, folks - Apple is really filling out the offerings for iPhone developers!

      Anyone tested it out to see if pwnage still works. I know it builds custom ipsw files but wondering if Steve found a way around it. It seems a little weird a week after pwnage another 2.0 beta came out.

      OK... and just how would they go about doing that?? Through iTunes? I doubt it... Where did you obtain that information the Bermuda Triangle? Or did the face on Mars tell you? Don't remember reading that anywhere... I can say that you don't know what you are talking about so please stop spreading BS like this.

      The guys at Conceited Software need to write a new version of Installer.app for version 2 would be good.

      coincidence that's all. Normal part of the beta cycle to have 3-4 week release gaps.

      So can someone out there upload the 5a240d firmware restore file so we windows fellows can try it out.....That .dmg file being seeded is useless as far as my knowledge goes since there is no way to extract it on a windows OS. TPB is waiting for this file......

      any version of the 2.0 firmware outside the hands of an official developer is warez. No one will upload it to this site and I seriously doubt MMI would want to host it. There are lots of ways to extract a .dmg on a PC. If you had bothered to do a google search you would have found more than enough information on reading a .dmg on a PC. Here is the answer: http://www.google.com/search?q=.dmg+windows&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-USfficial&client=firefox-a

      Anyone can activate the 1.2 (2.0) firmware, but there is no point. It is very buggy because it is still beta and also no apps are written for it so almost nothing works on 1.2 currently.

      Good to see Apple is thinking in Brazil

      Doesn't matter what extension is on it. There isn't even Pwned for windows yet. So you woulnd't be able to customize the file and restore it to your phone. I can't even find any seeds of 5a240d anywhere. Let alone being in dmg format. I think 5a240d is only being seeded to devs at this time unless one of them leaks it.

      I think some people may be confusing the SDK with the firmware again. This seems to be a regular occurrence. They are not the same.

      Also, if you try 2.0 I guarantee you'll be back on 1.1.4 within 10 mins. There are no Installer apps available, it's slow and it crashes a lot.

      Everybody... just wait until the official release! Other than MS Exchange support (which is still buggy), a new calculator and some parental controls there really isn't any reason to upgrade yet.

      I have been on 2.0 for about a week now and love it. I really needed the exchange support. I does crash alot though and txting is very slow, contacts do freeze up sometime. Other than that im happy to trade apps for exchange
      im used to no apps our IT policy wouldn't let me put anything on my curve so im really not missing anything with no apps on my iphone. I was able to ssh in and but some wallpapers to use with the lock screen.

      The disadvantages out weigh the new features in the 2.0 beta. It's very buggish, no install app, no app store for those of you that used pwned, and alot of other problems. If you wait until the official release in June, you will be alot happier.
