I want my ipad to have folders and Gamecenter and thats all I want. I don't care for the multitasking or the mute switch.

But I see a few obvious bits are still missing
Considering the chances Apple will ever support #2,
I think a MobileSubstrate hack that implemented a GyroCompass would be awful nifty.
I think I'm gonna try writing a (user-mode) Compass as proof-of-concept. :/
How about a "mute switch" for Steve Jobs, when he adds 'new features' to IOS that remove old features we actually found useful?

I love the rotation inhibitor as well. It' essential for browsing the iPhone while laying down. I agree with a lot of you. I may lose more features than gain. Hopefully the Devs will have a few patches in the works. It may take a while though. This may be the first time that I don't upgrade.

Did anyone test the airprint? My lexmark Pro200 series does not have wifi printing at all other than the lexprint app which only prints photos at this stage.
I'm really looking forward to os4.2 and i hope it prints to lexmark printers as well
anyone tested this?

I don't even have a printer atm! Anyone know of a good printer that will be compatible with airprint? I think I'll probably go for a HP :-)

Ahh, from what I've read AirPlay is only going to be streaming audio not video? Can someone confirm this?
Seems like a nice update for iPad, but for iPhone or iPod Touch doesn't seem to offer that much. Are there really people needing Airprint? Airplay is cool but you need an Apple TV 2nd generation (how many have that) and if it isn't streaming video that is a big bummer.
My iPhone 4 will wait til there is new jailbreak which won't be too longI thought my carrier was bad til I got a new web host

I tried Jailbreaking my iTouch 4g on 4.2 with Redsnow, but Cydia crashes instantly when I launch it. Is anyone else having this issue?
11-02-2010, 11:11 AM #32
Cydia has not been updated to work with 4.2 yet. It will not be updated until it is packaged with a new/official 4.2 jailbreak tool.

Yea the new Cydia has not been released to the public yet

Sure hope Cydia 4.2 is better than the trash dookie I have now.....
How bout a user id for transferring purchases? And a backup system? Idk, maybe a tool that reflects the millions that have been made from it? Ie; doesn't look and act like broken crapware from 1998.
KthxbaiiPhone 4 to Android directly back to iPhone 4. I learned my lesson and will never leave iOS again.

Anyone know If this update will help the 3G at all?

Getting it for my iPad now can't wait
I wish I had a miniature elephant that fit in the palm of my hand. I would pick him up and he'd lift up his trunk and stand on his back legs and say PRRRRRRRRRRRRMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPHHHHHHHH and I would say yes little elephant i love you too.

Changing the screen lock button to a mute button is just plain stupid! Will there still be screen lock button anywhere?
