04-06-2009, 07:43 AM #282what are the 100 new features
Does anyone actually have the full list of the 100 new features? It seems everywhere I look I only see about 10 of them. For example, can you select from different VM notification sounds in the sound settings?

Probably sometime after we get FW3.0 in June...

I'm really excited for all the things 3.0 is going to deliver. I can't wait until summer! (Hopefully the beginning and not the end)

but they're have been many rumors scattered around that t-mobile are gonna wind up with AT&T just like cingular. that would solve peoples problems with having to unlock their iPhones but, i doubt that's gonna happen anytime soon, especially by the time the new software is officially released..

I have been on the 3.0 beta 2 jailbroken for a week now and it is amazing! You really can not tell that it is a beta. Bluetooth, MMS, and landscape texting rocks.

Just had the liberty of updating my 3G 16gb iPhone to Firmware 3.0 Let me start by echoing other threads messages... "do not attempt unless you have plenty of free time" (and of course unless you know what you're doing). Nuff said. Firmware 3.0 out of the box is, well, iphone out of the box. Really plain o vanilla.
Pros: Addition of Voice Memo (old news to jailbreakers) and A2DP support for bluetooth stereo "YEAH!" I'm happy to report, I've tested it with my Motorola S9 headset and it sounds pretty good. Sounds like the ear buds. Although it lacks the functionality of the audio controls (Play/Pause/FF/RW/Stop) that the S9 are equiped with. But it is nice to go cordless. Its 2009 and i can't believe I'm finally saying that about my iPhone (sigh). Hopefully Apple will support Bluetooth audio controls on their official release.
Cons: UDID authentication on leaked firmware is a bit of a challenge to overcome. Quite frankly, I didn't have the patients to overcome it. As a test device, I went without the ability to actually use it as a phone. Only updated my modem to 04.22.01 to test the A2DP. Not really moving forward. Downgrading to 2.2.1 is also a challenge. WinPwn2.5, DFU only with iTunes 8.1 will work smoothly. Others will output error codes. But it will downgrade only your fw, your baseband will remain 04.22.01 (Sigh). At the rate that these updates are releasing, it is only fair if Apple starts paying developers and iPhone owners for using, testing and developing their product for them.
Conclusion: Happy about A2DP, it works. Miss my Cydia, ICY is not quite there yet but at least there's an alternative. QuickPWN3.0 will do the trick to jailbreak and activate but you will lose your phone capability. Simply cannot make and receive calls or sms without registering UDID. My advice, be patient and wait a few more weeks. Good luck

Here is an example of turn by turn directions in OS 3.0 Beta 2:
you need to have Yellowpages mobile installed for this:
1. go into YELLOWPAGES and look for a place...like Radio Shack
2. Program will respond & ask if it is OK to use location services.
3. Respond YES
4. Yellowpages comes back with GPS Icons and how far
they are from your location.
5. Click on the nearest LOCATION
6. When GPS brings up map, go to bottom of screen and
click on folding paper (bottom right) for next screen info
7. Click on LIST
8. First screen returns with a list of TURN BY TURN DIRECTIONS
I beg to differ with you about OS 3.0 Beta 2.
If I have used the KEYPAD within PHONE and press HOME:
1. If I then try to go back into the KEYPAD within PHONE,
by selecting PHONE, I get DIALER for a second, then I get a blank screen.
2. Then I select all contacts or favorites.
3. Then I reselect KEYPAD and it is functional.
* This is defintely a BUG.
