IPhone OS 3.0 Available Right Now

Today's the big day, and iPhone OS 3.0 is already showing up on Apple's servers. The update isn't seeding through iTunes yet, but you can download a restore image directly from the source.

The download is available here. (Warning: Direct link to the IPSW restore image)

Some notes: • To install this, you'll have to restore your iPod to the downloaded firmware. • The build number is the same a the Golden Master, which is to be expected. Likewise, the feature set should be the same. • This will not work on iPod Touches, so don't bother trying • The update will probably propagate through iTunes before too long

We'll keep you updated as the situation changes; for now, start exploring. [Many thanks, Kirk and Julie!]
