hello, I just read 15 pages and I still do not understand
some things, and I wanted to ask others:
I am Spanish, if I file under and what the facilities will have
os 3.0 in Spanish?
if you install the iPhone 3.0 GM can not go back to a
is really the final version?

This is not the final version, are you on an official carrier in spain? You can not downgrade your BB if you have a 3GHe who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Quick question fellas, sorry if this has been covered already. I'm using a jailbroken iPhone 3G running 2.2.1 in the UK. I don't care about unlocking so I'm not bothered by any baseband changes so could I acquire a copy of the GM 3.0, install it and then re-jailbreak with no problems? I'm not asking for links, I'll find all that myself - I just want to know if it's safe to upgrade this way and still be able to jailbreak it.

When you take a photograph it sends it to the bottom left hand corner, where as now, it still does that, but shows the actual picture
But I think the best feature(s), is the ability to forward text messages and use MMS (if I can get it to send). I did want bluetooth(phone to phone), but....
Confucious, would it be worth downgrading back and the connecting it to itunes, for the official update
I have just discovered that MMS WILL work for O2 Uk users!! When 3.0 has been put onto your phone, it puts the following info in the:-
Username "what ever it shows"
bunch of number beginning with 193 and ending in 8080
MMS Max Message Size 307200
I have put the following in and O2 has text me, confimring I have now been set up for MMS and it has worked:
It turns out that it is possible to enable MMS on O2 contracts without the IPCC file hack that was required previously. You can instead go to "Settings"->"General"->"Network"->"Cellular Data Network" on your iPhone and fill out the MMS section with the following details (note that you need to restart the phone after filling these settings in): (This info has coem from Flickr)
MMS Max Message Size: [leave blank]
MMS UA Prof URL: [leave blank]
Hope it works for you! (4 text messages are deducted from your bundle for each MMS sent)

Jailbreak is not available for 3.0GM yet, or so I believe.
If you are on an official carrier and don't want a jailbreak you *could* upgrade - but not officially unless you are a developer.
When the official release is made on 17th you should just be able to download the ipsw (I'm sure it will be seeded within about 5 seconds of release) and then just restore the final version but I don't believe iTunes will recognise it as an upgrade and do it automatically.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes.

^I really don't want to go on a contract for more than 12 months as I know Apple will release a new iPhone next year to make up for the disappointment this year. The 12 month free web and wifi would save me £120 though. Hmmm yeh, still not worth it lol.

to people asking for jailbreak:
even if the devs do jailbreak the gm they will not release it due to the fact that apple will be able to make the necessary changes to the official firmware and from my perspective apple didnt include a baseband update in this one because the official one will have a baseband update
as for the iphone 3g s (s stands for speed)
forget it! apple needs to stop treating iphone releases like firmware updates..make something that will make upgrading the current device worthwhile, i mean a better camera? a compass? video recording?? i have cydia for that..ill stick with my 3g until an iphone worth it comes out

I know this is my first post but I thought I would give you guys and update on how I went with updating my phone to 3.0GM on the Australian carrier Telstra
After getting a copy of the 3.0GM I shift+restore my phone once the installation finished (by the way I aint a developer or use a developer's account.) The phone activated and restored from my last backup within an hour includes 20 odd apps and 1400 songs.
I went into messages and it asked for my phone number it then took me to settings where I put my phone number in. I then received an MMS from telstra setting up the MMS no tehering though (or not that I could see.)
I have been running for about 2 hours now receiving txt messages, MMS and phone calls with no worries.

So has anybody heard now what "testing mode" really is? If it is locked into this mode and does not let you downgrade does this still mean that you will be able to update to the public release on June 17? For anybody who has upgraded, was there anything different from Beta 5? Any new, or even minor features or fixes?
06-09-2009, 05:55 AM #233
We all know the Dev Team won't release a jailbreak - but that doesn't top other people doing so.
The 3Gs is aimed at people who took out a 2 Year contract when the original iPhone came out and are now looking to upgrade. If you already have a 3G there isn't a lot of point upgrading, more memory and speed are nice but no 'must haves' for most people IMHO.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes.

So, YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A DEVELOPER TO INSTALL 3.0 GM! I installed this last night and it worked perfectly fine! although I haven't managed to send a mms yet! however tethering is included in the o2 version and can be found in settings/general/network/set up internet tethering! although I'm yet to get access to it as it sends you to a safari link to set it up! and i have a poor signal in my home!
06-09-2009, 06:22 AM #235
Why do you need to SHOUT what everyone already knows?
Tethering will cost you an extra £14/month.

hay i read on some website that if you upgrade today ,when the official F.W gets out,it could screw your iphone up,is that true?
06-09-2009, 07:27 AM #237
I don't believe so, I believe it wont recognise it as an upgrade and you will have to restore manually, possibly in DFU mode but I am fairly certain it won't screw your phone.
06-09-2009, 07:29 AM #238
ok im trying to downgrade to 2.2.1 to see if its possible then back up to 3.0 but i keep getting error 1600 anyone have any clue whats going on? i tried dfu mode and regular restore, no go..
