New firmware 2.2.1





Apple has just pushed out Firmware 2.2.1 for iPhone and iPhone 3G, iPod touch, iPod touch 2G. You can download them here. Firmware 2.2.1 cannot be jailbroken at this time, so unofficial application users should wait for new version of QuickPwn from DevTeam. Unlock (yellowsn0w) also doesn't work for 2.2.1.

This update contains bug fixes and improvements:

  • Version 2.2.1 (Build 5H11)
  • Modem Firmware 02.30.03
  • Improved general stability of Safari
  • Fixed issue where some images saved from Mail do not display correctly in the Camera Roll
  • Fixed issue that caused some Apple Lossless (ALAC) to skip during playback
  • Unofficially Apple fixed SMS bug: users suddenly experience inability to send SMS text messages on the iPhone 3G, receiving the message "error sending" upon attempting to send.

GPS not working in 2.1 firmware?



Several users have reported an issue in which GPS functionality and location services in general do not work properly after the update to iPhone OS 2.1. In most cases of the problem, location service crosshairs appear, but the tracking blue dot (indicative of GPS) never appears.

As described by Apple Discussions poster hitchsaid:

“Both my brother and I have iphones and we both updated to 2.1 and the GPS on both our phones were working fine prior to 2.1 Now all we get are the crosshairs- the blue dot is nowhere to be seen. I have tried all the recommendations sitting outside for 20min, 3G off, airplane mode on/off, soft reset, location services on….wi-fi on, bluetooth off…. but nothing seems to make it work again….what is really bugging me is that it was working fine before the update.”

The fix for this issue, for many users, is to navigate to Settings > General > Reset and choose Reset All Settings.

iPhone firmware 2.1 this Friday



Apple announced that v2.1 firmware will be delivered this Friday. Change log is:

  • lots of bugs fixed
  • fewer dropped call
  • big battery life improvements
  • no crashes with Apps - hopefully the whole app install process is better.
  • backing up to iTunes is faster
  • great new performance enhancements

There is nothing said about push notification service, cut/copy/paste or turn-by-turn GPS.

As always, I strongly recommend no one update until the Dev Team releases an upated pwnage.

iPhone update for 3G issues and etc in September?



Jim Dalrymple at Macworld notes that the iPhone software update from Monday was mostly to handle issues with dropped calls on new iPhone 3G handsets. According to an Associated Press article, the update "improved communication with 3G networks," said Apple spokesperson Jennifer Bowcock.

However, some Macworld commenters are saying the update hasn't helped with dropped calls, even in areas with a strong signal.

What's more, according to an AppleInsider rumor, another update is scheduled for September that addresses an issue where non-default applications will repeatedly crash. A tipster claims to have received a Steveogram saying the issue "is a known iPhone bug that is being fixed in the next software update in September."

iPhone's firmware 2.0.2 is out



Apple just released new firmware for iPhone - version 2.0.2. As usual, all the company mentioned was that the update includes "Bug fixes."

Notes on the release follow:

  • No new settings appear to have been included.
  • Some users report faster browsing, though this may be due to cleared cache.
  • Typing lag may be reduced.
  • No consensus on improved 3G connectivity.
  • iPod Touch firmware 2.0.2 also released.

But as always, do not update until we get word on a jailbreak.
