    When i was installing the 3.0 beta 4 i could not help but to read the part that

    says you can not downgrade but you will be able to upgrade to the final when

    the free update is probably only linked to their itunes or they have to use their account password

    "Free" in a sense but it was $100 to get them into the program.

    i getz to haz 3.0 for free legally. Even though we had to pay for the beta 4, it'll probably make up with the free upgrade.

    What do you mean you paid for Beta 4?

    And the firmware will work just like a store application, with the exception of Dev accounts being able to use it without paying. (I'm not entirely sure about this btw, just seems logical)
