  • Firmware 3.0 Beta 5 (7A312g) and iTunes 8.2 are seeded to developers
    Firmware 3.0 Beta 5 (7A312g) and iTunes 8.2 are seeded to developers. Apple breaks its tradition of seeding betas every other week and releases Beta 5 after only 8 days.



    Could this early release be in anticipation of Leopard 10.5.7 update rumored to be on track for this Friday? Maybe a compatibility update?

    Downloading now. Will update with changes.

    EDIT: Upgraded store kit is the only api updated.

    There is a new iTunes 8.2 and it apparently the option+click/shift+click has been patched. If you want to keep your cellular data settings screen, tethering, and MMS then make sure your carrier settings (ipcc) is updated before you upgrade.



    Known Issues
    • A small set of AT&T customers may experience data services that stop working
    after installing iPhone OS 3.0 beta 5 on a device. If you experience this problem
    with a device that worked properly before the beta 5 update, please call the
    developer support line at 1-800-xxx-xxxx for help restoring data services.


    This may be more of a loop hole patching update rather than a bunch of new features.

    EDIT 2:

    YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE THE NEW ITUNES TO UPDATE TO BETA 5! I RECOMMEND USING THE OLDER ONE SO YOU CAN UPDATE YOUR IPCC!

      Ugh, I entered my passcode too many times (just couldn't remember it; my phone asks me to change it every 24 hours) and everything was erased.

      I found beta 5 on a torrent (went EXTREMELY fast). I just hope a jailbreak comes out by the end of the day.

      Methinks I'll be skipping this update. ( P.S. I have never gotten MMS to work on ATT US even after adding the non-iPhone messaging plan and updating the ipcc file. Can tether though, and the new iTunes beta tethers on a PC as well now, though I have no use for it.) Has anyone else noticed that they get better reception on ATT US after updating the ipcc file? On Beta 4 I couldn't make or receive calls in my apartment until I updated the ipcc. Maybe I'm just crazy, or it's just a coincidence.

      Methinks you won't be skipping this update - unless Beta 6 is released in the next 10 days or you want your phone to stop working...

      Whats a store kit???

      My time and data info disappears during phone calls on Beta 4, I hope this fixes that. Has anyone been having trouble with visual voicemail and not receiving their messages?

      I have no idea! But all Betas expire 10 days after the next one becomes available, so Beta 3 will expire in 2 days time and Beta 4 in 10 days.

      I'm sure someone will correct me if that's wrong.

      Just finished updating to beta 5 and i gotta say it seems faster.

      MMS and Tethering working flawlessly with StealthB's O2uk .ipcc, and sending MMS is superfast, in previous betas it has got faster each time, now sends in 8 seconds.

      Downloading from the App Store is far faster than beta 4, and all apps seem to open faster too.

      An all-round good set of bug fixes IMO.

      There isn't a problem going straight from b3 to b5 is there? My iPhone is on b4, but I have a couple of devices that are still on b3.
