iPhone Dev Team announced just a few minutes back that they were working hard to release tools to jailbreak and unlock iOS 4 and had warned users who relied on software method to unlock iPhone to avoid upgrading to iOS 4 until they have tested their tools with all relevant devices.
iPhone OS 3.0, iPhone Firmware 3.0, iPhone 3.0
iPhone Dev Team Releases UltraSn0w 0.93 To Unlock iOS 4 Baseband 05.13.04, Also Unlocks All Basebands Since iPhone OS 3.0
The iPhone platform has come a long way since it was first introduced in 2007 with the first generation iPhone.
While the operational elements have not changed a great deal since then, long time iPhone users will vouch for the rapid strides observed in the performance levels through the several iterations since then.
The past couple of months have not been easy for Apple. Ever since Motorola Droid arrived in the market, there has been constant debate over whether or not the Droid is better than the iPhone. To add to the challenges, Verizon launched their attack campaigns, first against AT&T and then against Apple.
After all this, one might have thought Apple might have shown signs of cracking.
It looks like the bug where iPhone users had discovered emails that were deleted long time back while using the Spotlight for iPhone feature is fixed in iPhone OS 3.1.
iPhone user, Ted Landau had reported the bug in iPhone's Mail app after upgrading to iPhone OS 3.0.
If you are an iPhone 3GS user who has accidentally upgraded to iPhone OS 3.1 as you weren’t aware of the warning given by the iPhone Dev Team to avoid upgrading to iPhone OS 3.1 then there is some more bad news.
Unfortunately, there is still no news as to when tethering will be available as there was no mention of it in the press release, so looks like AT&T customers will have to wait even longer for that feature.
If you remember, Apple introduced a new feature called 'Find My iPhone' in iPhone OS 3.0 for MobileMe subscribers. The feature helps iPhone users with a MobileMe account to find the location of their iPhone if it is lost or stolen.
We had doubted the effectiveness of the feature but Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has just reported that an iPhone user was able to direct the police to the location of the men who had robbed him at gunpoint thanks to the “Find My iPhone” feature.
They are reporting that after upgrading to iPhone OS 3.0, their iPhone either cannot maintain a Wi-Fi connection or it doesn't download data once it is connected.
