      I think he has other, more pressing matters to be concerned with right now.

      I just updated to the new version, tried to save an image from my mailbox that wouldn't work with 2.2 and it still saves the images blurry. What the hell Apple?

      I'm downloading the update since I'm not jailbroken nor unlocked. May dive into modding the phone, just not too sure yet.

      took the words right out of my mouth. I am sooo tired of updates. Even with a brank spanking new PC/ Mac it still takes a while to put everything back on the phone, and thats not even all the jailbreak stuff. Dammit.

      Is there even anything in the update to make it worth it? I mean there still is no MMS and there still is no landscape typing in SMS or email and there is still no Copy and paste. Well at least there is none of that in the base firmware. You have to download stuff that only sometimes works. Stupid Apple! I sometimes think they just don't care about the user anymore!

      If you're using a first generation phone you should be able to DFU restore to 2.2. If you're on a 3G phone the baseband got updated and there's no telling if this baseband will be unlocked anytime soon.

      Thanks all
      I have never gotten those to work. As a matter of fact, I have never even read a real success story of using those apps to restore your iphone and its jailbroken stuff. there seriously needs to be a tutorial on this.

      What did you accidentally upgrade? Was is an iPhone 2G or 3G or and iPod Touch? Regardless you will lose jailbroken apps until one of the pwnage tools is updated. If it's a 3G iPhone then I doubt you can downgrade since the baseband was updated in this release

      Nothing big as states. Just wish we wouldve got a nice major update with the features we've been begging for since the 1st iPhone came out. But hey we've waited long enough so whats another year or so...

      Dude, this a bug fix release... nothing more. Version numbers generally have 3 components and a release number in the form of X.Y.Z n. For example 3.2.1 5678 which means: major version 3, minor version 2, bug fix version 1 and build number 5678

      A version number change of X.Y.0 - X.Y.1 etc means bug fix only. X.0.Z - X.1.Z means enhancements, some small additional features and bug fixes. 2.Y.Z - 3.Y.Z means major new features, enhancements sometimes even an overhaul of the operating system.
