Yeah, I’m on the latest OS 3.0 beta 3(iPhone1,1_3.0_7A280f_Restore.ipsw, go to mybittorrent and search for it) right now already
Credits goes to the Russian hacker who released the QuickPwn-030-3, by which you can activate and jailbreak the latest beta 3 OS.
My way to the beta 3 was not as smooth as expected, however.
The first time I shift+restore the phone to the beta 3 surely worked. But the problem was when it’s done I couldn’t get it out of the DFU mode. Really weird.
So I had to do the whole things again. and this time I was lucky. It worked.
BTW, in order to not to let the phone activated by the iTunes when first time the phone was connected to the computer just after the restore process, I chose to take the SIM card out all the time. I have no idea if it will work if keeping the SIM in.
Here’s how i get there, terribly straightforward. btw, i’m already on iPhone OS 3.0 beta 1 before upgrade.
1. Download the unoffical quickpwn here(discussion here) and the iPhone OS 3.0 beta 2 on Demonoid(use iphone firmware to search).
2. Launch iTunes(i’m on 8.1), Shift+Restore to choose the firmware(iPhone1,1_3.0_7A259g_Restore.ipsw) to update.
3. After done, start quickpwn.exe to jailbreak and activate. No unlock necessarily ‘coz the restore process won’t touch the baseband.
4. Sync back all of your stuff by iTunes. In my case, I always set it up as a new phone ‘coz doing so makes me feel it’s a like brand new one
Enjoy the beta 2 now.
I just updated my firefox 3b2 to 3b3 this morning. After reading this review by MozillaLinks, guess you will do the same as i did
However, there’s problem coming: i can’t use my previous addons which i really rely on so much. After some googling I finally got this cool Nightly Tester Tools from here.
I installed it immediately. Then i went to ‘Tools’->’Add-ons’ dialog, find the ‘Nightly Tester Tools’ on ‘Extensions’ tab, Click ‘Options’ and navigate to ‘Add-ons’ to ‘Disable add-on compatibility checking’ and then restart firefox.
It’s time foryou to get all of your those favorite addons back now. Enjoy.
I myself has been trying firefox 3 beta 1 all the time since it’s released on Nov.19th. As to my experience, memory management has been improved a lot. I did try to keep the browser running the whole day and i did find it never took more than 100MB memory allocation. I’m pretty well satisfied.
Now beta 2 is around the corner. As said, easier to use, faster and less memory usage are the key improving aspects. Wow, just cann’t wait to try it out.
And guess I would not go back to Firefox 2, too, if those of my previously installed add-ons could be upgraded to work under Firefox 3.
Update(Nov 19th,2007): It’s released today. Get it by Help->Check for updates... in Firefox 3 Beta 1.
