Restoring 2.2

Downgrading from 3.0 beta

On March 25th, 2009 10:00AM PST Will start of the 2nd iPhone 3.0 Beta giveaway. Single Grain has 50 more licenses to give away and it will be on a first come first serve basis. Last time we had this giveaway we ran out of licenses in 6 hours.

The giveaway is similar to last time. Heres the details:

1. Spread the word. Post this on twitter: “Single Grain’s 50 iPhone 3.0 Beta Giveaway http://tinyurl.com/c3zxra& blog about the giveaway

2. Email us where you blogged (URL to blog post) about it and your UDID number (Here’s how you find your UDID Number on your iPhone) And we’ll email you the link to download it. Email your information here: sj@singlegrain.com

3. Give Feedback. So once you’ve installed 3.0 OS Beta leave a comment. How do you like it? Any bugs? Any particular apps don’t work? Anything will be helpful.

It’s really easy. Let’s begin. We will update this page when we run out of licenses.

Disclaimer: This is a first come first serve basis. Once you install iPhone OS 3.0 Beta on your phone you will not be able to revert back to 2.2.1 so be absolutely sure you want it. This is not the actual iPhone it is just the software. Single Grain is not liable to for any damages to your phone. If you do run into any problems we are more than happy to help. Please do this at your own risk

Update 1: The giveaway starts 3/25/09 at 10AM PST NOT RIGHT AWAY! You will not only have to post on twitter about the giveaway you will need to blog about it too. Please do both and include the URL of the blog post in your email with the UDID Number.

Update 2: Please make sure your UDID number is at least 40 hex characters. If it is not correct and you install your iphone it will not activate.

Update 3: We are almost out. Its only been 1 hours and we only have about 15 left.

Update 4: We are out of licenses. Stay tuned as we are going have another giveaway soon.

John Murphy’s Feedback:

1.) For some reason I can’t send SMS to multiple recipients anymore. It keeps giving me a “message send failure”
2.) My sound is a little out of whack. Intermittently the keyboard click and unlock/lock notifiers don’t work.
3.) MMS doesn’t work. I assume that’s an other carrier thing but who knows.

Other than that I love it and I assume these bugs will be worked out before the official release. Thanks for the opportunity to try it out!!

    I have been waiting for this since the initial post–can’t wait to load this on my iPhone–I have heard great things about the 3.0 update from a friend who was lucky enough to score some from the first 99 licenses released, hopefully the 50 addition licenses haven’t been all given out yet?

    And we’re up and running! Thanks Single Grain! Everything seems to work great so far. All my apps stayed in place. It’s a little sluggish as others have mentioned, but otherwise good!

    Here are a couple of weird things I’ve noticed. The icon never shows up to say I’m using WiFi instead of Edge. When I go into Settings and click on WiFi, it says I’m connected to the network. And when I browse a web page I can tell by the speed that I’m definitely on WiFi. But I still have the “E” up in the top of the screen.
    The other thing is that it keeps screwing with my ringer volume. Whenever I use the voice recorder and a couple of other times it drops my ringer volume and I have to turn it back up if I want it where it started. That’s all so far. Oh and not even the option to use MMS, but I’m on a 1st Gen. iPhone so I expected that

    i am really pumped that you guys hooked me up with the beta 3.0!!! i just have one quick question, why doesn’t the MMS work on it? i’ve tried to send pictures and receive them and i can’t send them and i still receive them the same way as before. i was just curious if i need to enter something somewhere to make it work. thanks!!!

    1st of all tnx for the giveaway its really cool to have the 3.0 right now… I have mixed reaction regarding the 3.0, 1st im happy to have cut and past spotlight and the much improved outube these were some of the features that im really excited of the new software… But 3.0 has its own share of problems especially the stability of the phone (it crashes like 5 times more then 2.2.1), some of the apps are unusable like imob and itv… I fully understand thats its beta testing but hopefullly apple would fix some of the issues here to make us have a better experince atleast of 3.0… Im thinking of downgrading my software back to 2.2.1 but first ill wait for apple’s next move, they might have something in store for us…
