    To the good leaders at iPodtouchfans,
    To Dev-Team,


    I do not know how to contact you, except here.


    How to reply?

    I don't want to give a link to this forum to this professional person, who can't even "google".

    Think of what "comments" this person might make about this forum.

    Is it possible to have a "clarification" appear on Dev-Team Blog, and send her a link for "clarification" since this person quotes the Dev-Team.

    I just don't know what I can say.

    Here it is:


    CNET announces: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-10199822-37.html

    I put a comment, at the end.

    I sent this email:

    CNET quoted the Dev-Team at http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-10199822-37.html
    but made the announcement appear to be only for people who have yellowsnow.

    In fact,

    This is for everyone, not just people who have yellowsnow.

    Because if you install 3.0 beta (and you are not an Apple approved developer having a UID number) and you choose to do a restore to the previous firmware, you will lose the baseband and will be unable to get it back.

    So,

    1. If you have yellowsnow, wait for the Dev-Team.

    2. Even if you don't have yellowsnow, if you do not have an Apple Developer ID and you apply the 3.0 beta, and then, choose to do a restore of the firmware, you will lose the baseband, which means, no phone service.

    Possibly, forever.

    If the baseband cannot be retored, then the iPhone is no longer a phone.


    So, do not try this at home.

    Wait.
