  • Photos - from Safari to Camera Roll, and Beyond
    The latest build of the 2.0 firmware (now at 240d), now includes the option to save photos straight from Safari to your camera roll.

    Simply tap and hold an image for a couple seconds, and a window will scroll up asking if you'd like to Save Photo or Go To URL. Save, and the photo shows up in your camera roll!

    A perfect addition to our iPhone wallpapers section, browse to one you'd like, and save for use.

    The 2.0 firmware will be released in June, but versions of it are floating around the net (don't link to them here, thanks) and can be applied and unlocked/jailbroken to your iPhone using the Pwnage Tool.

    What other little new secrets are in the latest firmware? Find one? Let us know by shooting me a pm with a screenshot...

      @T4R06: same here - pwnge dont recognized it. ive read someting about an automatic online update of the tool - but i dont know when its released.

      Update: update is here - it works with actual beta - but no baseband is available (phone stays at old baseband).

      What about saving photos that are e-mailed to you to your camera roll? Anyone know if that is supported?

      I don't know if this was in the last build but there is an option in settings to import SIM contacts which is awesome.

      You can now search contacts in the Phonebook and the scrolling is functional again.

      The new beta 2.0 can take screenshots (without modifying the .plist), it just does, as it should have been doing since it's original launch in june '07.
      What you have to do: PRESS THE HOME BUTTON & SLEEP/WAKE BUTTON at the same time and hold them for 2 seconds, the release them simultaneously and it takes the screenshot and saves it to the camera roll (just like in 1.1.4 after modifying the .plist)
      I think i am the first one to discover this!

      A weird thing though... There are a couple of blank spaces in my address book. Must be a glitch. There is no contact attached and when I hit the space it gives me the above contact.
