Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch Beta OS 4 is Here – Plus Jailbreaker Info

Developers everywhere now have the ability to begin using OS 4.0’s new functionality right away.  In fact, even if you’re not a developer, you may be able to secure access to 4.0 well before the rest of the public does in summer (very likely to be on or around the reported June 22nd iPhone HD release).  For a small fee, some developers are willing to add you to their development license thus granting you the ability to use 4.0’s newest features including multitasking, folders, and increased levels of customization.

Interest in the OS release has reached a fevered pitch over the last week.  In fact, one of Google’s top searches is currently people trying to get the OS and/or find out more information about it.  Our team of writers is currently making an effort to get an early look and when we do, we plan on writing several features talking about the new features leading up to the public launch date.

It is worth noting that those folks that jailbreak will want to wait to update.  4.0 has reportedly already been cracked by the dev team, however the release of that exploit has not been publically published and may not be until the official Apple release of the OS.  The reason being, Apple would very likely close that exploit well before the actual release to the public.

To be added to a developer’s list, that developer needs one key piece of information – your phone’s UDID.  If you’re not sure how to find that information, it is a fairly simplistic process.  Simply hook your phone up to the computer you use to sync.  Open up iTunes.  Under devices, click on your iPhone or iPod Touch.  Next, see where it says serial number?  Simply click that number once.  Voila – your UDID appears.  Find a developer that will show you some love and get started using the OS 4.0 beta today.

    I found this website that i linked to my name above actually found them in facebook, just click on my name to go there, dont worry, you dont need to be a facebook member. They had me up and running 4.0 right away and i now have complete access to their Apple developers account with my own user ID and password. It was worth it, just my 2 cents for anyone who is in the same boat i was.

    The beta 3.0’s are ending this month. Consequently, your UDID will be removed from the account and if new access is not purchased you will be locked out of any future releases and run the risk of locking your phone until the UDID is reregistered. If you want to have access to 4.0 for another year you will need to purchase the service selected again. Apple maintains strict control over the developers account memberships and we have even seen them close out at 11 months instead of the full 12. If this is the case there is nothing we at can do about their decision. We are still accepting 63 new developers access accounts at this time. Thanx and enjoy iPhone 4.0.
