    Default iPhone SDK 8, Firmware 2.0 Beta 8, and iTunes 7.7 seeded to Developers


    Apple yesterday seeded new releases of iPhone software to developers, including SDK 8, OS 2.0 Beta 8, and iTunes 7.7.

    An anonymous tipster sent us in the info that came with it:

    iTunes 7.7 pre-release seed is being provided solely for the purpose of installing iPhone OS beta 8 on your Apple devices. The use of this pre-release software is governed by the same non-disclosure agreement covered in your Registered iPhone Developer Terms and Conditions with Apple. iTunes 7.7 pre-release software is for development and testing purposes only and therefore should not be used with any existing iTunes libraries on your system.

    Request new iPhone Development Certificate
    To prepare for the release of iPhone OS 2.0, certificates issued prior to June 9, 2008 have been
    revoked. Request new iPhone Development Certificates in the Program Portal and have a Team
    Admin re-generate any provisioning profiles containing the revoked certificates.
    Looks like AppStore won't work without the latest version of iTunes installed. Developers are now encouraged to submit their apps for review - the last we heard they were able to submit the metadat, but uploads were not yet working for the actual apps.

    The OS 2.0 Beta 8 firmware is NOT the Golden Master that some sites had rumored was released, but that firmware version will still be released by early July, as Steve let us know in the last keynote.

    Also of interest - the usual RAM disk decryption is no longer possible in beta 8. The dev team and hacking community will have to figure this one out in the next couple weeks before launch.

    This is unverified, but the tipster also sent us this blurb from the Whats New in iTunes 7.7:

    What's new in iTunes 7.7
    Use iTunes 7.7 to sync music, video, and more with iPhone 3G, and download applications from the iTunes Store exclusively designed for iPhone and iPod touch with software version 2.0 or later. Also use the new Remote application for iPhone or iPod touch to control iTunes playback from anywhere in your home — a free download from the App Store.
    This could be confirmation of the rumor that's been going around on the Remote application which lets you control iTunes with the iPhone.

    Further iTunes 7.7 info:

    I may be too late, but you may want to add this that I forgot to include in the tip:

    When I launched iTunes 7.7 I found that it introduces MobileMe settings under the Info Tab and a new Application syncing tab.
    The MobileMe settings redirects you to the browser to a http page at Apple, but it is currently unavailable.

    iTunes Store behaves as usual. No App Store or link so far.

    On a side note: I now have an iPhone with 2.0 Beta 5A345, but surprisingly my other iPhone with 2.0 Beta 5A240d that is Pwned, is now recognized as a regular iPhone and not with the generic iPod icon. Nevertheless, music downloaded from iTunes still won’t sync because it reports that the software is too old.

    So far the usual tricks I used to downgrade from 5A331 (Beta 7) to 1.1.4 are apparently not working. Thus for the moment I am stuck with Beta 8 on one of my devices.

    This part scares me.

    I have an unlocked iphone. I hope they get this one figured out before release. I don't want to be stuck with a 1.1.4 phone forever.

    neither.

    basically it has 3g internet (no use to tmobile),
    gps (supposedly),
    and activesync for business users (not me).

    basically sucks.
    but i am sure there will be little tweaks of the menus and such like in 1.1.3 with the moveable icons.

    iTunes Remote App will be awesome (as much as I love Signal, I'm sure this will be better than just a webapp).

    I can't wait for July 11, I'm dying for iPhone games.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    2.0 firmware will be released on July 11th, along with the new iPhone.
    I'll find the link in a second.

    EDIT: here ya go:
    Despite some recent reports about an early Firmware 2.0 release, one reader points out that Apple's iPhone 3G press release pinpoints July 11th to be the day of the 2.0 software launch:
    iPhone 2.0 software will be available on July 11 as a free software update via iTunes 7.7 or later for all iPhone customers

    Even if you reflashed the firmware before sending it in, the baseband, which has it's own seperate firmware, would have remained unlocked. "Revirginizing" an iphone completely is rather long and complicated (since the only tools for it run on 1.1.2, you usually have to downgrade, rejailbreak, put the tools in place via winscp, login via terminal, run the tools from terminal, and then wait -- and all this requires you to be able to find the older baseband firmware somewhere first).
