  • 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!

      As long as you don't upgrade iTunes, you can still install the ipcc file on beta 5 using shift+upgrade or shift+restore. Once you reboot your phone the mms camera will show up in messages (Thanks God!!!)
      I actually did upgrade iTunes and installed beta 5. Being on T-Mobile, I can MMS with no problems, so I really wanted to enable it! I uninstalled the new iTunes and reinstalled the earlier pre-release that came out with beta 4 and Voila - I could install Stealth's ever-so-handy ipcc file!!!

      Hmm after the update my iphone seems to be fast. Faster than beta 4. might just be the reboot but it seems zipper!

      Even my apps are faster! This doesn't seems like the normal fast after a firmware update.

      hi

      I have beta 4 installed and jailbroken it appears to be working great however been reading all the posts and other forums trying to find out if I can enable MMS on my o2 phone but no one seems to have an ipcc file for o2 so can someone confirm whether MMS will work on o2 phones ? and if so does anyone have an ipcc file i can use ?

      thanks

      StealthBravo, is your ipcc any different to Reeko's ipcc? Basically with either is it possible to receive mms?

      hi

      After installing beta 4 and jailbreaking it I had no MMS options at all appearing on my options so no i guess it isnt enabled at all, do i need to change any of the settings on the 02_ipcc you have linked ?!?!?! can you also give me a quick guide to installing the 02_ipcc on my phone please and once again thanks for your dedicated support and help.

      Will be an interesting test as there dont seem to be many o2 usrs with beta 4 that i can see.

      cheers

      I don't know how old his is but mine is 2 weeks old. Last time I looked at it, our settings were the same. The only difference was that I added the boolean values to allow the cellular data screen and apns to be editable. All those booleans may not be needed on beta 5 because it seems to be coming up on everyones phone already.

      I was just gonna ask about that. I just upgraded to 3.0b5 and the values are editable already. I didn't need to upload the ipcc file. Still don't have MMS working but that's a whole different issue.

      hi stealth

      I have installed your 02.IPCC file and the MMS settings and tethering are now visible so one final question about the cellular data settings do i need to enter my o2 username and password ? or do i leave the vertigo one thats already in there ?

      thanks

      Does anyone know if A2DP is enabled on B5? And if so, is it iPhone 3G only or are both models capable of A2DP? I can't seem to enable it on Beta5.. Thanks

      even with the O2 IPCC file MMS is not available as O2 need to make changeds and they wont do that at the moment..

      Teathering still works for me on Beta 5 and I upgraded with the version of itunes that came out with beta 4
