  • 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!

      No, I didn't do anything other than what I described above. Everything is still working fine.

      b5 best beta yet (even though we say that after every one that comes out ). my att mms is working, ipod app working now, (wasn't in b4), tethering works.

      hey guys, i updated to beta 5 and then updated ipcc file from Stealth.... i then lost my mms but tethering was still there. i think i may have figured out how to get the mms settings back although i have never been able to get mms to work on my phone. what i did was go to settings>general>network>cellular data network, then under MMS for MMSC type in: mmsc.cingular.com and under MMS proxy type in: 066.209.011.032

      these settings are totally random, i was googling mms settings and found these for ATT so then i typed them in and restarted my phone and now i have MMS enable/disable settings again! let me know what you guys think.

      gah, why did i have to update my itunes.

      Can i just reinstall the old version? I can probably find a torrent for it somewhere.

      Is the A2DP performance better? I'm getting a bit of skipping with beta 4 and I'm still waiting for volume control.

      As the guide states u dont need new itunes for beta 5... however...

      if you have expired beta, ie the purple/pink screen of death, you need to have itunes 8.2. this was the case for 2 phones i work with today and i worked with stealth or well he gave me guidance and the problem was fixed. so thanks stealth and purple screen needs itunes 8.2

      StealthBravo: "a Japanese keyboard"

      Really? Just one? Does it say "Japanese Keyboard" or "Kana" or something else? In 2.2 there are two or three depending on whether you have emoji enabled or not. Seems strange that they would pare down a feature like that. I was actually hoping for a handwriting recognition Japanese IME like Chinese has.

      I've been flipping through this forum a bit. I am considering joining the developer program to get access to the 3.0 beta. Few questions for you guys

      If I am a legit ATT customer and upgrade to the 3.0 beta, will I LOSE any features on my phone without doing the special techniques provided?

      Also, how buggy is version 5? I read before that alot of people tried to convert back because 3.0 was very unstable.

      3.0 stable enough to run day by day for me and just ask someoone to add your uuid to the dev so yuo dont have to waste 100 bucks
      and downgrading is easy

      I'm on AT&T and haven't lost anything (what were you thinking you would lose anyway?).

      I don't think beta 5 is buggy at all. It's VERY stable and is VERY speedy. I haven't come across any app store compatibility issues either.

      If I were you, I wouldn't join the developer program just to get the 3.0 beta (even though a lot of people are doing it, which is kind of stupid). I would just get an existing developer to add your UDID.
