Here is a demo of new version of app Stack that supports firmware 3.0. You can download it
Here is a video that shows how to get fancybattery indicator on any iPhone. Your phone needs to be jailbroken. Why this wasn't already included in all 3.0 firmware for all iPhones is questionable.
We just posted statistics from AdMob about firmwares on iPhones and iPods. Here are the numbers from another company - PinchMedia. This company deals with monitoring the use of applications.
The results below show that:
- most users (66%) use firmware 2.2.1,
- only 1 of 4 users installed the new 3.0 firmware,
- 7.3% of iPhone and iPod Touch owners performed jailbreak.
Admob has released new statistics showing the data about currently installed iPhone and iPod firmwares. Only 1% of the iPod Touch users has updated to firmware version 3.0! Probably the fact that the upgrade costs money discourages some users.
As for the iPhone the upgrade was performed by 44% of users. Of course these statistics may not be accurate as they are based on scripts present only in some AppStore applications.
We wrote about how to enable thefering on iPhone with 3.0 firmware. Here is one more video from CNet. They use the same method.
Users from forum iPodTouchFans analyzed strings in firmware 3.0 and found traces of a new iPod model defined as "iPod3, 1". The current iPod Touch 2G is the "iPod2, 1". Apple typically releases a new iPod every year, precisely in September. In addition to 'iPod3, 1 were also found traces of a iPhone3, 1, "iFPGA" and "iProd0, 1" which still remain a mystery.
Among the various rumors there are: new hardware and a camera in the next model of iPod Touch, video capture, etc. We shall see!
DevTeam released Ultrasn0w - application that will unlock your iPhone 3G with firmware 3.0. Here are the instructions:
- Ensure you have upgraded to iPhone OS 3.0
- Jailbreak your iPhone using redsn0w (this will also install Cydia)
- Run Cydia
- Please add the repo repo666.ultrasn0w.com to Cydia. That last “o” is actually the number zero “0”! If you use the letter “o” you’ll get an error.
- Search for ‘ultrasn0w’ in cydia or icy and install ultrasn0w
- Reboot your iPhone 3G
- T-Mobile USA users should disable 3G before using ultrasn0w
Apple announced today that the company has sold over 1 million iPhone 3G S models over this past weekend. The press release notably includes a quote from Steve Jobs:
"Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "With over 50,000 applications available from Apple's revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever."
The sales figures match those of last year's iPhone 3G launch weekend sales numbers. Apple also reports that six million customers have downloaded the new iPhone 3.0 software which works on the existing 40 million iPhone and iPod touch models.
It is always good to know what is working and what is not. This list will be changed quite soon, becasue developers are trying their best to make apps work. But for now here it is:
- Winterboard: This only works in some cases. The themes and can not be fully supported yet.
- Categories (works well but the applications are no longer found by Spootlight)
- Status Notifier
Applications not working:
- VideoRecorder for 3G
RedSn0w is an easy to use, multi-platform, multi-device jailbreaking and unlocking (iPhone 2G only) tool from DevTeam. It supports firmware 3.0 and iPhone 2G (original iPhone), the iPhone 3G (but not the 3GS) and also the iPod touch (first and second generation):
DevTeam released PwnageTool for firmware 3.0. Here is the list of supported deviced:
- iPhone 2G - jailbreak and unlock
- iPhone 3G - only jailbreak, use only with official unlocked iPhones
- iPod Touch - jailbreak
- iPod Touch 2G - not supported, use redsn0w
- iPod Touch 3GS - not supported
If you are using a 3G iPhone with yellowsn0w and rely on yellowsn0w to obtain cellular service, then you should NOT use PwnageTool right now. Ultrasn0w is not included with this release and therefore your baseband will be locked and unable to use an operator other than the official one it was bought for. Ultrasn0w will be release via APT (cydia and icy) soon (update: Ultrasn0w released). If you have an original iPhone (1st generation) then 3.0 unlock works with this PwnageTool release.
Yellowsn0w in its current form will NOT work with the baseband version that is present in the 3.0 update, you will need Ultrasn0w, which will be released sometime soon, Ultrasn0w will work with all iPhone 3G models (but not 3GS), even ones that were previously unlockable, Ultrasn0w will be released via APT (this means you can get it via Cydia or Icy).
PwnageTool will NOT work for the iPhone 3GS. PwnageTool WILL work for Original iPhone (1st Generation), Original iPod touch (1st Generation) and the iPhone 3G.
