I have just released part one of an Advanced RSS Reader using the TouchXML library. Can you add it to the list?
It is available at iPhone SDK Tutorial: Building an Advanced RSS reader using TouchXML (Part 1) | dBlog.com.au

Another good one is a bunch of video tutorials a friend of mine is putting together.
Straight forward, easy to understand, lots of explination, and starting right from the very basics.

Just started my multi-part tutorial series on Developing an iPhone app using SQLite & TouchXML and getting it published on the App Store. This will be a very in-depth series that will show you everything from setting up your workspace through to codeing and submitting your app.
Parts 1 & 2 are available here

I have 3.0 firmware on my phone and i installed it properly. I am not a developer, but my best friend is and he place me on his device list to install 3.0 firmware. All of a sudden, this firmware stopped working properly, I no longer have the 3g symbol, nor can i access in data apps on the iphone unless im on a wifi network. The genius bar doesn't support the fimware because it hasn't been publicly released yet. Can you help me? Any ideas?
Thanks, Your help will be much appreciated,

I personally started learning iphone development and found books like Beginning iOS 4 Application Development by Wei-Meng Lee very easy to read.
Also a fan of video tutorials. You can get a bunch of them here:-

To be honest, designing iPhone apps is pretty easy for me. I make around $300 a week on one of my old apps alone. I don't even have a job anymore because app development makes me just as much money as working full-time and I can make apps on my own time. This is what got me started; iPhone Dev Secrets. It is a little pricey, but I made my money back in my first week.
