iPod 3,1 was caught in the internet





ipod

Apple’s third generation iPod touch seems to be going out for a little web-based test drive. Designated iPod touch 3,1, we first saw code hints of it in the iPhone 3.0 beta firmware, and then in rumors about the iPod touch getting a camera. Now, according to app analytics provider PinchMedia:

we’ve been noticing an “iPod 3,1″ string appearing in our version reporting, signifying what we believe to be a new yet-to-be-released version of the iPod Touch.

For the last two years, Apple has reveled new iPod touch models during their fall music-focused events. Last year, the second generation iPod touch debuted at Let’s Rock alongside iPhone 2.1, and iTunes 8. Since Apple likes their product cycles, does this mean we’ll see iPod touch 3,1 and iPhone 3.1 sometime this September?

Purplera1n: iPhone 3GS jailbreak by GeoHot



purplera1n1

Geohot released a beta software for iPhone 3GS jailbreak called PurpleRa1n. It is beta and has some issues, but it gets the job done if you’re patient.

Requirements: You must have
1) Windows xp sp2, Vista, Windows 7, MAC OS
2) iTunes 8.2.0.23
3) Purplera1n software

The jailbreak is a bit incomplete. The kernel vm_mem patch is not present so Winterboard will not work as some other critical tweaks. (SBSettings does work!).

Use with caution and be patient. If you're not in a hurry, wait for the release from DevTeam.

You've already purchased this app. Would you like to pay one more time?



purch

The iPhone Blog reports that in the iPhone 3.0 beta firmware, users are being told that may not re-download applications over-the-air without being charged. The dialog box (shown above), however, does indicate that users may still re-download applications for free through their computer.

Fuzzyband replaces 3G Baseband Downgrader



hazdowngrade

3G Fuzzyband Downgrader is now available in Сydia. This should be used instead of 3G Baseband Downgrader for downgrading the baseband on phones containing the 5.8 bootloader.

Benefits over original downgrader:

  • Does version checking, will only downgrade if phone is eligible
  • Downgrades all versions of baseband from 2.30.03 to 4.26.08 (3.0 beta5)
  • Reports current bootloader version on screen

The original downgrader was a possibly dangerous app, as it relied on a failed downgrade to decide whether downgrading was possible. Anytime you run BBUpdaterExtreme you are potentially doing damage to the modem, so the version checking in this app minimizes the chances of accidently corrupting the baseband.

What's new in Firmware 3.0 Beta4: 12 changes



Here is a list of changes from iSapzio (sorry, screenshots are in Italian):

1. You can now enter to Settings-Store to see the balance and billing information:

11 12 13

2. Another change concerns volume control in the iPod app (or the "Music" on iPod Touch). While using Firmware 3.0 beta 4 on iPod Touch first generation, we can see that the controls for the volume are gone. This is an intelligent system, that turns on and off volume control, depending on USB, headphones and AD2P connection:

21 22 23

3. Fixed problems with iPhoto and displaying thumbnails of the screenshots / images from the CameraRoll.

Video Recording, voice control and compass in future iPhone



cameraui

It looks like the iPhone will record video this summer. Buried in the latest iPhone 3.0 beta is this screenshot of what's obviously the iPhone's still dormant video recording interface. Besides the honking red record button in the center, there's a toggle to switch between the still camera and video recording. Inside the configuration files where the screen was discovered were mentions of an "auto-focus camera," "magnetometer" (digital compass), and "Voice Control."
