iPhone 2.0 firmware going gold master this week

iPhone 2.0Here we are, at the tail end of June, and it appears that the firmware is right on schedule to achieve the status of golden master on Friday. According to our friends over at Gizmodo, they have a source inside the iPhone software dev team who let them know that the shipping version of the update will follow build 345. Expect a couple of new encryption and code-signing features.

Now, just because the firmware will be finalized and ready on Friday, that doesn’t necessarily mean that we can expect it to show up in iTunes or anything. During the latest keynote, Steve Jobs said it would be available in early July. Also, as history has shown us, the final version of firmware can be ready weeks before it is released, as was the case with the firmware we got our hands on weeks before it was out. Surprisingly, the build number of the version we had matched that of what shipped.

Anyhow, we look forward to getting our hands on the final version of the 2.0 firmware. We are ready for some App Store goodness, Exchange features, iWork support, and most importantly, Super Monkey Ball.

Wasn’t there already a bunch of people who were running 2.0. Or am i mistaken?

I’m pretty sure that it’s the beta testers. And i hope that the 2.0 firmware is already ready to ber jailbroken as many of other blogs are posting. I’ll be too anxious to wait for someone to hack it. I’ll want it right away.

I think some people were running 2.0 but I’m not sure either. There are quite a bit of screenshots out there showing an iPhone running 2.0. I think a lot of people are eagerly awaiting for it to be released and I can see why, with 2.0, there are so many things one can do with the iPhone now.

All the previous versions of the iPhone or iPod Touch firmware have been jailbroken, so I have no doubt that this one will be jailbroken too.  It would be interesting to see how quickly this version gets jailbroken.  The hacking team sure is fast in making software that allows for easy jailbreaking.

@jess1ca:  Only the beta testers have been running firmware 2..  Well, other people have too but they’ve illegally downloaded hacked versions of the beta.
