Only recently Apple announced the availability of iPhone OS 4.0 for developers which brings a lot of new features including Multitasking and the new iAd platform.

While we believe that the firmware is not mature enough to be used by end-users, limiting it to the developers is still a bit unfair. Therefore! we are providing the links to download the iPhone 4.0 beta firmware.

It may be noted; the firmware may only be used by the user for testing-purposes as it is not meant for daily use. Also! Those who would like to keep their devices Jailbroken and Unlocked should stay away from this firmware as there is a good chance that they might not be able to restore to a previous firmware ever. The list of firmware as provided by Apple:

  • iPhone1,2_4.0_8A230m_Restore.ipsw (iPhone 3G)
  • iPhone2,1_4.0_8A230m_Restore.ipsw (iPhone 3GS)
  • iPod2,1_4.0_8A230m_Restore.ipsw (iPod Touch 2G)
  • iPod3,1_4.0_8A230m_Restore.ipsw (iPod Touch 3G)

To download the firmware for your device; follow onto this link. Only available for iPhone 3G/3GS and iPod Touch 2G/3G. Only those with iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3G would be able to take advantage of multitasking on their device.

Update: The iPhone 4.0 beta 2 firmware is out. Also see our tutorial on how to Activate the iPhone Firmware 4.0 beta with Unique device ID (UDID) on your device.

Now that my UDID is registered, and I have downloaded the iPhone2,1 .ipsw file for my iPhone 3GS, can I restore my phone right now, from that .ipsw file??? I currently have it jailbroken with Blackra1n… Will it screw up my phone, or does this just mean that my iPhone will remain fine and will be completely fine to update to the legit iPhone OS 4.0 update when it comes out, it just means that it may not be able to jailbroken, depending on whether or not the dev team or someone else finds a crack.

Is that correct?

Hi, great efforts, still waiting for UDID.
I think multitasking and folders should be of equal importance.
