  • 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!

      oops

      that note on iTunes 8.2 pre-release (b10)...would that be a different version than the one we already have or will we have to update iTunes as well?

      just not sure what that "b10" signifies.

      Could one of you guys with a developer account PM me? The guy who added my UDID isn't contacting me, but I'd like a direct link to beta 5 if possible. I haven't paid my $99 because I'm still learning Obj-C (SLOOOOWLY).

      No no no.

      I don't remember who added my UDID; this guy PMed me, said he would add my UDID, and he did. I deleted the PMs so I don't remember who did it. I was gonna see if I could get a direct link to beta 5 so I wouldn't have to wait, but I don't know now...

      Someone said that shift+clicking in the new iTunes doesn't work anymore. Is this true?
