    3.0 is the new firmware being released this Summer. Right now, it is in the beta stages. You can get a beta if you sign up for a $99 iPhone Dev Center account. It currently can be jailbroken for all devices except the iPod Touch 2g with an unofficial Quickpwn from some Russian guys. Its new features are Spotlight (A search function,) Bluetooth, and many other new things. And welcome back to the loop

    there are illegal ways to download the firmware as well.. but i wouldnt do it.. cause it won't work on your ipod if u get it illegally. if u really want to get it, either become a dev (pay $99) or wait it out. but it'll b worth the wait. welcome back to the loop sir

    Firmware 3.0 is coming out in June 2009 for $9.95. It's a firmware update that surpasses the Firmware 2.0 series (from 2.0 - 2.2.1). At this time, it's still in beta stages (currently beta 3) and can only be used by those who have their UDID identifier number registered under a developer account.

    It's been jailbroken by a few of our own members, but there's no real tool out for the public right now. Plus, it's in beta stages right now so it's not really being focused on entirely. Once 3.0 is made public in June, there will be more focus on the jailbreak.

    On March 17, Apple presented the blueprint for iPhone OS 3.0, the next version of the world’s most advanced mobile platform. In addition to previewing its innovative features, Apple gave members of the iPhone Developer Program immediate access to the iPhone OS 3.0 software beta and an updated Software Development Kit (SDK) with over 1,000 completely new APIs.

    For iPhone owners, it just keeps getting better. When iPhone OS 3.0 arrives this summer, it will introduce over 100 new features, including the ability to:

    * Search your iPhone
    * Cut, copy, and paste
    * Send photos, contacts, audio files, and location via MMS*
    * Read and compose email and text messages in landscape

    With the new SDK, members of the iPhone Developer Program can build applications that do even more. Developers will have the tools to enable in-app purchases — like subscriptions, additional game levels, and new content. They can also create apps that connect peer to peer via Bluetooth, communicate with hardware accessories, and use the Apple Push Notification service to provide alerts.
