  • 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!

      You are correct sir. The betas expire 10 days after the release of a new one! I love seeing post where people say they are not going to update to the next beta. lol

      Yep, that fixed it. I just synced a test playlist and it's working again! I didn't know that. I thought it just told you there was no playlists.

      Yep, I removed the "test playlist" and iPod app opens. It tells me "No Content" "You can download Music from iTunes" Weird...

      i have a question. i'm on b4 and not a registered dev. in the post it says if calls/service not working you have to call that 1800 number, but i'm not even a dev, lol so how can i do that. but can someone clarify this; if i update to b5, can't i just not use the new itunes, and use the old 8.2 and install in the at&t ipcc and that should fix it?

      Is there an estimated release date for the jailbreak?
    1. moto_noob's Avatar

      ipcc is the carrier settings for like internet(wap) voicemail, messaging, etc. you don't have to, but updating it allows for more features, i.e. tethering and mms. to update you get the ipcc for your carrier, and then shift+click on "check for update" select the ipcc and update.
