If you are jealous of everyone on 3.0 beta, and want to load it yourself...

First, you need to obtain a copy of the 3.0 beta firmware file. Please don't PM me asking for it, my PM gets full too quickly with these requests. The answer is torrent - just google around till you find it. That's really all I did. And if you don't know what torrent is, once again, google and learn.

Then, you need to be added as a beta tester or iTunes will brick your phone. Here are three developers I know are looking for beta testers, just email them and they will tell you what you need to do (these two have personally told me that they are ok with their emails being posted):

chiclaso@gmail.com
taewing509@yahoo.com

Once you have the firmware file and have been approved as a beta tester by a dev, go ahead and open iTunes, hold Shift (Option on a Mac), hit Restore, find the 3.0 firmware file, and load it up. All should be well!

P.S. Don't post a link to a torrent or you will be banned. Also, if you are willing to pay the $100 to join the developer's program and will need beta testers, please PM me so I can add your email to the above list.

Are they ok with you posting their emails? The bots are gonna spam them. You should use AT instead of @ and DOT instead of "."

It's against forum policy. Look, I'm just telling people to search popular torrent sites in hopes of preventing links from being posted.

You might also include that the divice ID must be entered...I entered incorrectly.....and screwed every thing up!

Alright, I'm not editing anymore here... I don't think it's wise that we put these guys' email addresses up here, whether they're willing participants or not. I'd really rather people deal with this through the chatroom or somewhere else.

I understand it's an 800-lb gorilla we're trying to avoid here, but everyone's help is appreciated. No one knows how Apple is going to react to all this yet.

They posted their emails in other iPhone forums on the Internet using the @ sign, so I'm sure they're ok with it.

Sorry guys, but I had to remove the emails. I don't care if these Developers are giving out their emails elsewhere, the fact is that you don't have their permissions to give them out here. Send me a PM with proof that they gave you permission (a screenshot of an email, etc.) and you're free to post them.

I emailed them. An EiC user just PMed me wanting his email up there, should I just him PM you instead so you can add it?

Sure thing. A screenshot, a forward, whatever, just as long as it can prove to me that you have permission. You can add them yourself, just as long as the addresses correspond to the PM's you've sent me.

By the way, thanks for understanding. I'm just trying to avoid problems here.
