ModNote: Merger of threads discussing the release of iPhone firmware 3.0b3 today. I shall also stick this thread for a while so that it can be widely seen. :) --mkrishnan

Fully implemented A2DP
That it will be released on April 14th.

What is the point of this thread? Nothing better to do while waiting on a server to compile. :D

Beta 2 expires on the 24th of April (10 days from today)

Beta 1 expired 10 days after the release of Beta 2.

Beta 3 should be out today.

YouTube works now. You just have to set up as a new device. Apple encourages that anyway since 3.0 technically isn't supposed to be used on a non-development device.

Anyone remember what time the Beta 2 was out? It is rather early in Cupertino (sp?) so I doubt it would be out til later today.

Although that day they were having issues releasing it and it was delayed if I remember correctly.

no beta is for testing purposes only and that too for developers. If it does that when its released publicly, then you will have a valid point

There is not going to be a new beta today... Just because it's Tuesday, doesn't mean Apple releases betas only on Tuesdays. I also realize that the last beta was released 10 days BEFORE the previous one expired, but they have a 10 day window to play with so why does it HAVE to be released today?

I think it will be out by Friday, but I don't think it will be today... I'm just not feeling it.

fishkorp
Apr 14, 2009, 10:04 AM
There is no set upgrade pattern. Just because it was 2 weeks last time doesn't mean it'll be 2 weeks this time. Remember, with the 2.0 betas one of the build expired before the next build was out, so everyone had a dead phone for a day.

Now if they release a new build every 2 weeks on the dot for 2 months, then you can claim there's a pattern. But after a single update it's unfair to make that call. It's like going outside and asking 2 people what they had for breakfast and their response happened to be a bowl of Cheerios, then you claiming that "100% of people ate Cheerios for breakfast today."

oh thank god you told us how you are feeling about this, i was holding my breath for your prediction ;)

Apple has a great tendency to release almost everything on Tuesday. Heck im not even a big apple guy and ive picked this up, and obviously ive not been here for 2.0 beta's, so i wouldnt know much about previous beta releases

I said there was only going to be one beta because I was joking in a ridiculous thread.

Also, just because Apple likes Tuesdays, doesn't mean they release everything on Tuesday. I'm gonna go ahead and say there will be NO NEW BETA today and then everyone's going to be disappointed by the end of the day when they don't see one. Then you'll see that I was right. If I'm wrong... then... sweet, a new beta!

Also, to the people who say "You said you weren't going to upgrade to 3.0!"... I have 2 iPhones and an iPod touch. My every-day iPhone is running 2.2.1 so that I can stay sane. My development iPhone and iPod touch run 3.0 so I can l find bugs and submit them to Apple.

I hope you are wrong, yesterday I spent 3 hours downgrading to 2.2.1 and my MacBook crashed while I was restoring to my 2.2.1 backup. I finally managed to get the phone working at 1am, so, Beta3 better not come out for a long time as far as I am concerned :)

just curious, what were the major problems that caused you to go back to 2.2.1?? even with the beta, i still think its overall better than it was with 2.2.1

It was not Beta2 that made me want to downgrade, but the fact that I had played around with so many .ipcc files that I no longer had access to my Visual Voicemail.

So I wanted to downgrade and restore to my 2.2.1 backup to get back to where I was before 3.0 Beta2.

(Everytime I restored to my 2.2.1 backup however the phone was back in restore mode for some reason, but that is a topic for another thread).

Apr 14, 2009, 12:22 PM
thats why i did not want to start up with the ipcc files....hoping changing the sim card into another phone, will allow me to get into media net and therfore be able to start using mms flawlessly.

1.Video recording enabled for 3G?
2.MMS might actually have the proxy carrier settings
3.Landscape appstore? :)

I hope it comes out today but I doubt it. If it does I think it will be more of a stability change than any major new features. As they get closer to launch the lag and bugs diminish greatly. I just hope we don't go through what we did in 2.0 when there was one beta in the chain that was a major step back in usability(although very short lived).

Exactly.
If you're using the beta, you should know what you're doing.
People who just want the MMS should not be using the beta at this time. (IMO)

i did try downloading it with firefox, but it still saves on my desktop as pretty much nothing. it shows a file but when i click on the update it says its updating the carrier, but the carrier file is still the same after the "update", means something must be wrong with the way i have downloaded the file.

Too bad. I have only German carrier bundles. But I guess Google might be a help.

we dont use AM and PM here,we use 24 hour format so I don't know how to use AM and PM properly.. :rolleyes:
but if 12 AM is 24h how do you tell when it's 12 (24h format)? xD

currently is 11.24 pm or 23.24..

12am is 12 midnight and 12pm is 12 noon.

Try double clicking the file and extracting it. It downloads as a .zip and then you have to unzip it. It will look like a lego block when it is the proper format.

Could it be that they're removing the ability to hold down the home button to force quit apps? Seems like it would be pretty easy to enable in these betas, so I find it strange that it doesn't work.

There is not going to be a new beta today... Just because it's Tuesday, doesn't mean Apple releases betas only on Tuesdays. I also realize that the last beta was released 10 days BEFORE the previous one expired, but they have a 10 day window to play with so why does it HAVE to be released today?

I think it will be out by Friday, but I don't think it will be today... I'm just not feeling it.

Another accurate "prediction" by TheSpaz. Maybe you shouldn't trust your feelings, they don't make you look good. Or maybe you should try a different approach: Don't state what you think as it was a fact.

The problem is not that he madre a wrong prediction. Problem is that he states his opinion as FACT, and was picking on the op on why should it be released today, when in fact, it was.

Best part of 3.0B3 is that restoring to beta 3 from beta 2 doesn't wipe the device, it just upgrades your iPhone. Takes 15 mins and doesn't touch any settings or files. The way it should be!

The speed at which you move through the song/movie when scrolling left or right.

For example - in pre 3.0, if you moved the circle along the bar it would be proportional (moving your finger half way across the screen would jump to the middle of the film), now if you move your finger down the screen and then along, it 'fast-forwards' at a slower rate, allowing you to get exactly where you want to without missing it.

I hope that makes sense...

This is actually a very nice feature, now you can more easily jump to an exact part of a song or movie.
