    Once again, digging through Apple's XML files has revealed the url to the iPhone 2.0 Firmware that is presently available on Apple's servers. The firmware image has a filename of:

    link removed

    This build is slightly higher than the one of the latest iPhone Firmware Beta (5A345) which was also spotted on shipping iPhone 3Gs. Despite the filename appearing in the XML file, the actual firmware has not yet been released officially. As well, the firmware carriers a "1,2" designation while all previous firmwares, including the beta firmwares carried a "1,1" number.

    Apple has posted an updated guide about firmware upgrades and warns:
    In order to install the firmware, you will have to do it manually by pressing the Option key when pressing the "Check for Update" button in iTunes.

    We expect the firmware to be officially released shortly and will appear in your iTunes software update. If you don't wish to wait, you can use this method, but should proceed with caution.

    So I don't need to do the backup thing since all the content of mine is stored in my iTunes library?

    It almost feels like opening all of your presents on Christmas morning before everyone else is up... maybe I'm just thinking that because everyone else in my house is asleep. ;)

    There are mutters that this could be 3G or beta only. If anyone succeeds in applying update please post.

    Downloading now, will try on my iPod Touch. The info mentions the Touch and iPhone together - maybe the firmware is now the same as well ... ?

    The newest beta was previously 5A345, so this is more recent (and possibly final).

    I was going to try during lunch, but I think I'll wait for half a day for the real deal to come through iTunes with no hoop-jumping.
