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.
This is the first and exclusive video about the iBluetooth Project by MeDevil. It shows the iPhoneBluetooth Unlock and the first file transfer from an iMac and a SonyEricsson cellphone. iBluetooth application is not yet finished. As soon as will be complete, it will be hosted in Cydia.
First of all these icons can be viewed on any iPhone with 2.2 firmware. But to be able to send these icons users need to perform additional actions. There are 4 ways to turn them on and 2 of them are free:
Solution N1 for $5.99:
In AppStore buy and install Touch Dial Emoji. Goto Settings -> Touch Dial -> Enable Smiley icon ON. Launch Touch Dial. Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."
Solution N2 for $0.99:
In AppStore buy and install FrostyPlace. Play with the app for a minute to activate, click on a story, etc. Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."
Solution N3 for Free:
Jailbreak your iPhone. Run Cydia and install Emoji application (iSpazio repository). Go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable "Emoji."
This application adds boolean ‘true’ key KeyboardEmojiEverywhere edits in /User/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Preferences.plist. You can do it manually if you want.
Solution N3 for Free:
Step 1. Download the vcard.vcf here.
Step 2. Import it to your address book program. If you are using Windows, you may want to do it on iPhone directly. Send the vcard.vcf file to yourself. Open in on iPhone’s Email.app, click the vcf file and import all the contacts.
Step 3. Go into “Settings” > “General” > “Keyboard” > “Japanese Keyboard”. Enable the QWERTY keyboard.
Step 4. In notes or any other program you want. Type “emojia”, “emojii” or “emojiu” to select those icons.
I like Solution N3. It is free and simple. You do not need to play with contacts and etc. But you need to jailbreak an iPhone.
This is one more solution to add copy/paste functionality to iPhone. Couple days ago we wrote about Clippy. This one is called hClipboard. Avaliable via Cydia (bigboss repository) for jailbreaked iPhones.
Here is a quick tutorial how to use it:
After installing just enable it in Settings → General → Keyboard → International.
When the keyboard appears, switch to ℏClipboard by clicking the International button (the Globe) repeatedly. Then hit the Copy button. The entire content of the text field should now appear in the top of the clipboard.
ImaSafari allows iPhone users to turn off image downloading in Safaribrowser. This is very useful for GRPS, EGDE and 3G connectins. First of all webpages will be downloaded faster. Second - you will save money if you pay for inernet traffic.
Clippy adds copy-paste functionality to iPhone and iPod Touch. It is avaliable in Cydia (iSpazio.net repository) for jailbreaked iPhones. The only limitation is you cannot select text in Safari and copy it to clipboard.
Dev Team finally made it. They created software called yellowsn0w, that unlocked iPhone 3G. Now you can use any carrier you want. I successfully unlocked my US version.It works much more stable than sim proxy method.
Please, back up everything on your iPhone before you start, just in case. Everything you do is your responsibility. I had to go through all 4 steps to make my iPhone 3G work. I used only my new sim without sim proxy.

The new tools are out, thanks to DevTeam. Here are couple notes:
If you have a 3G iPhone and want potential soft unlock in the near future do NOT use QuickPwn, and do not use the official ipsw or the iTunes update process without using PwnageTool.
Preserving the baseband will give you the maximum chance for any upcoming software unlock. To upgrade your phone to 2.2 and preserve the state of the baseband you need to create a custom .ipsw with PwnageTool. This custom .ipsw will not contain the baseband update but of course will still allow all the cool new stuff from 2.2.
The ‘late 2008’ MacBook/air/pro line of computers have an issue with DFU mode. While it’s possible to go from Pwned 2.1 -> Pwned 2.2 (using PwnageTool), you can’t yet go from stock to pwned. If in any doubt use a different machine.
