Update: OK go for it!

While we are excited to get our hands on things like Google Street View and Podcast direct downloads (no push notifications?!), the iPhone Dev Team warns us that upgrading an EDGE OR 3G iPhone to 2.2 will break the jailbreak and activation.  They expect to have an update out shortly to adress this. 

Now that we’ve performed our civic duty to warn jailbreakers, let’s look at what the new update has in store for us:

  • Enhancements to Maps
    • Google Street View*
    • Public transit and walking directions
    • Display address of dropped pins
    • Share location via email
  • Decrease in call setup failures and dropped calls
  • Enhancements to Mail
    • Resolved isolated issues with scheduled fetching of email
    • Improved formatting of wide HTML email
  • Podcasts are now available for download in iTunes application (over Wi-Fi and cellular network)
  • Improved stability and performance of Safari
  • Improved sound quality of Visual Voicemail messages
  • Pressing Home button from any Home screen displays the first Home screen
  • Preference to turn on/off auto-correction in Keyboard Settings
