    As far as I know, there isn't documentation on that yet, but probably (and hopefully) it will be just updating to the new headers.

    Stop saying for Linux! This tutorial works for OS X, Windows, AND Linux, not just the one.

    Yeah but for Windows you need Cygwin. So it doesn't run natively.

    anyway... there is a HUGE difference between 3.x and 2.x. if your not sure what 3.x is, please go to apple.com and search iphone os 3.0. just trying to help. but i dont have an answer for the iphone on windows or linux.

    Fair enough say what you like. I won't distribute that link anymore and I won't say it's for Linux. Anyway back on topic.

    While yes, there are a lot of new APIs and stuff, I don't think it will take more than update the headers tohave an updated toolchain. Basically, Apple can't change too much, or apps from 2.x would be completely useless.
