Looks like Apple’s just released iPhone OS 3.0 beta 5, a little over one week after its last revision. That’s about half the time they’ve put between the previous updates — seems the boys in Cupertino are really starting to churn these things out. You know the drill by now, we don’t know yet what the update entails, but we’ll tell you when we find out. Oh, and just like last time, it appears iTunes 8.2 is required.
Apple’s released iPhone OS 3.0 beta 4 to the developer community alongside an iTunes 8.2 pre-release.
Thanks to some of Engadget’s readers, they have been testing iPhone OS 3 beta 4 and the first thing that they wanted to try out was the previously empty “Store” settings pane. In this new version of the OS, it is now populated, but do not get too excited as is pretty boring. All you can do is sign in and out of iTunes. That is about it on the iPhone OS 3.0 beta 4 side of things, keep checking back.
On 2nd April 2009, Apple announce that they are releasing iPhone firmware 3.0 Beta 2. And on the next day (3rd April 2009), RebelSim announce that their RebelSim v61 is still able to unlock this version of firmware and baseband (iPhone Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, Baseband 4.22.01.). This is a good news to those who already got their RebelSim, or those that going to purchase it.
As of now, RebelSim v61 is able to unlock:
- iPhone Firmware 2.2, Baseband 2.28.00 (You don’t need RebelSim, Since Yellowsn0w can do the job for free.)
- iPhone Firmware 2.2.1, Baseband 2.30.03 (You need this, or any other turbosim. No way to unlock 2.2.1 without them, as of today.)
- iPhone Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, Baseband 04.22.01 (I have no heard anything out there can do this, except this one.)
So, If you are thinking of upgrading to Firmware 3.0 Beta 2, AND you successed on the jailbreak with the tool that is mentioned in previous post. You will need this RebelSim v61 to unlock your phone to work with your Mobile Service Provider simcard.

Apple just release the iPhone 3.0 Firmware Beta 2 yesterday (2nd April 2009).
As we remember, the announcement of the release of iPhone 3.0 Firmware Beta (consider this is Beta 1) was just two weeks back.
What does this mean? One reason, this means that the Beta 1 is having a lot of BUGS.
All of us know that iPhone 3.0 is now possible to jailbreak, but as far as I know, it is still not able to unlock yet. But, even you are having a Globally unlock iPhone, it is better for you to stay on current version of firmware. Unless you are one of the developer in one of the development teams that writes iPhone Applications. Since you will be clam enough if you find out these bugs. An end user like me will only scold and throw (may be, anyone please stop me to do this, if I do…) the phone away.
Attention! QuickPWN 3.0 Beta 2 is out! This is an unofficial release and it’s not created by the iPhone Dev Team.
I know there are iPhone developers out there who want to upgrade to iPhone 3.0, iPod Touch 3.0, or iPhone 3G 3.0, but also want to keep their jailbreak. The Russian hacker Vortex has once again released an unofficial jailbreak at iPhoneApps.ru. I tried it on my iPod Touch with firmware 3.0 beta 2 and it works! You can only jailbreak on the iPhone 3.0 Beta 2, iPhone 3G 3.0 beta 2, and iPod Touch 1st Gen beta 3.0. It’s 3.2 MB only because it install’s RiPDev’s Icy program. Once you’ve jailbroken you need to open Icy, refresh all the sources and install OpenSSH to jailbreak. If you need any help please join the iPhone OS 3.0 forums and ask for help there.
Let us know if you make it work and please share your experience.
Note: This is BETA software, and some jailbroken apps may not work. Continue discussion in the iPhone OS 3.0 forum.
