Mac os X samba is shoddy at best. I've always had issues with it. I'm surprised to not see support for boujour print devices. Originally Posted by reddawg This is

    The iPhone uses a lite version of the Mac OS X's BSD Unix environment. Why can't the iPhone print to Windows printer shares like the Mac OSX can?

    I'm interested to see how (if at all) this will affect the 4.1 jailbreak release. I don't care at all about wifi printing.
    iPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.

    i'm sure i'm not the only one, but hold the jailbreak to 4.2, since it's been released.

    I don't understand why there isn't a printer tab in the Settings.app

    you do not need to wait for a lame Apple solution that requires you to have an "Approved or Enhanced" printer. Get Print Magic from the app store and print to just about any printer on any wireless network.... It prints anything you can copy and works on your iPhone and iPad... best $6.99 I have spent at the app store...

    Why on earth would I want to print from my iPhone?
    Unless it is a picture I took for which there is an application Canon's Easy-PhotoPrint that I can use, of course I have a Canon printer capable of wifi printing already. So the hell with 4.2 I want my jailbreak, DevTeam willing.
    If you own an iPad your mileage may vary.

    If you are asking this question then you are certainly under utilizing your iPhone.

    I upgraded my iPad to 4.2 and so far I am impressed. Makes it feel more like my iPhone which I love. I upgraded my iPhone 4 to 4.2. Not good. My 3G signal dropped way down and wi-fi has slowed way down and even stopped at times. Currently restoring my iPhone to 4.01.

    It's still synching my apps, but I can see that the 3G signal bars are back up where they belong.

    Are Apple not just doing lots of wifi printing application developers out of their potential sales of their apps on the app store? I can see these developers being quite upset with Apple over this.

    Apple announced the release of the first iOS 4.2 beta for iPhone, the iPad and the iPod touch today. The update - the first version of iOS 4 that can be run on all devices -includes the AirPrint wireless printing framework that was introduced at the 4G iPod touch rollout earlier this month. AirPrint, which lets iOS devices print over WiFi to compatible printers, will be available to all iOS devices when 4.2 is released in November. Apple also says that the upgrade will be free for all devices.

    AirPrint, according to Apple's press release, "automatically finds printers on local networks and can print text, photos and graphics to them wirelessly over Wi-Fi without the need to install drivers or download software." The framework requires printer manufacturers to build AirPrint support into their printers, though, and as of today only HP’s ePrint enabled printers - such as the HP Photosmart, Officejet, Officejet Pro and LaserJet Pro series - will work. iOS 4.2 devices will eventually be able to print to a variety of wireless printers, as well as ones that are shared through a Mac or a PC.

    The update, which will also allow Fast App Switching "multitasking" on the iPad for the first time, will be free to all iPad users. However, it may be the last free update: Apple's iPad licensing agreement promises free updates only "up to and including the next major iPad OS software release following the version of iPad OS software that originally shipped from Apple on your iPad. However, the agreement warns, "such updates and releases may not necessarily include all of the new software features that Apple releases for newer iPad models." Thus, an original iPad may not necessarily have - for example - FaceTime support, even with an external camera, even if the next generation iPad has such support, as has been rumored. Reason #164,256 to jailbreak…

    The release notes say "Much improved performance on 4.0+" so I've wondered if it really does look better, feel better under 4.x.

    Has anyone else compared Epic Citadel on both 3.x and 4.x, on the same (or equivalent) hardware?
    Yes, there actually was a significant difference on my end when I fooled around with Epic Citadel on 3.2 as compared to when i tried it on 4.2.
