    Using iPhone 3G on Beta 3.0

    Advertisement



    Got an iPhone 3G from work to test out 3.0 as it brings all the features which drove me away from the latter. Happy to report : So far so great.
    Let me know if anybody has any specific questions.

    i don't think it's that so much as you were putting yourself out there as "the guy" for 3.0 beta. maybe wait until someone posts a question somewhere, and then swoop in and save the day. have a nice night hero

    Has Copy & Paste been easy to use and does it work pretty good?

    oh wow what an educated and interesting answer...
    the point of this thread was for people to be able to ask in ONE common place what they are wondering about as far as 3.0 is concerned and I can answer those questions.
    have yourself a goodnight as well.

    It has been indeed. It does work REALLY well as it combines the brackets with the magnifying glass so you can copy paste from any letter in any word to any other letter in any other word.
    The other impressive thing was that it works between apps for instance i copied my email signature off of an email and pasted it in the settings app. I was really happy about that.

    I do have another one also?

    How is the landscape keyboard? Does it switch over pretty fast (no delays). Do the keys feel too wide or too far apart?

    .
    Switches over at the same speed it did in safari.. honestly it's 10x better typing with landscape especially if you have big hands or nails if you're a girl, i find myself making WAY less mistakes (although 50% of the mistakes i used to make typing would be auto-corrected anyways).


    Ramarks:

    One piece of food for thought would maybe have a setting for those who would want landscape mode for all apps that use it on at all times or at least to launch in landscape by default (even if the phone is being held upright at the time of application launch).

    Yeah rotation is way faster than the storm for exemple and is way faster than other rotating apps on the iPhone itself (coverflow for instance) go figure

    How to downgrade : http://thebigboss.org/2009/03/19/iph...ta-do-not-use/

    Are you downgrading because you do NOT have a developer phone and therefore your iPhone was not able to activate nor sync after you've updated it ?

    I'm still on 2.2. Running on Tmo so I need it unlocked, otherwise I might jump on 3.0.. Hope an unlock or jailbreak comes out for 3.0 quickly, I doubt it though.

    It almost goes without saying, but we will say it anyway

    With all of the great stuff lined up for us with the 3.0 OS that Apple described today, many 3G owners may find themselves with itchy update fingers. If you find yourself with access to the 3G IPSW for 3.0 via the iPhone Dev Center program, and you are using yellowsn0w, do not update or restore to that official IPSW. You will lose yellowsn0w and find yourself unable to revert the baseband to get it back.

    And for those wondering, yes the 3.0 OS is jailbreakable on all devices. It’s just those using 3G yellowsn0w that have to show some restraint and wait for PwnageTool to create a custom IPSW that avoids the baseband update.
    Source: http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

    I wonder if I can actually create a pwned image out of my 3.0 firmware throught the current release of pwnage since they write " yes the 3.0 OS is jailbreakable on all devices. It’s just those using 3G yellowsn0w that have to show some restraint " that sounds to me like the jailbreak is already here ...

    UNLOCK ISNT READY mind you
