Just installed and Genius finished scanning my music. It works AWESOME! I have a fair amount of music and it's nice to see songs I haven't heard in a while get picked up because they're similar to what I'm listening now.
EDIT: iTunes should cause no changes on your iPhone if you're jailbroken/unlocked, so I imagine it's safe to upgrade.

Seems nice so far - although my first iPhone 2G sync had a pretty long backup but that was probably due to installing Spore and playing it a bit since today's earlier sync. With no real changes to any apps I just sync'd again and seems to be the 2-3 min backup.
Genius is REAL nice. I'm listening to a playlist built off of Starsailor 'Born Again'... has Aqualung, Travis, Wilco, Idlewild, Death Cab, Peter Gabriel - some stuff I haven't rated yet and others that are 3-5 stars. Its like having Pandora built right in.

Works great on my jailbroken 2.0.2. First sync took some time, but now it's flying.

09-09-2008, 01:48 PM #28affecting pwned phones?
I was wondering if this will affect the phone? I am running 2.0.2 on a jailbroken iPhone 3g. I want to update itunes but not sure if I need to wait till the 2.1 firmware is out and jailbroken before I should upgrade my itunes.
Thanks for any insight

Well, the iPod Touch 2.1 Firmware has been released. Currently downloading. Don't know if I should test it as it isn't jailbroken. I heard that QuickPwn can work with iTunes 8 (as in, go through the process), it just won't allow you to sync (errors abound!)
I haven't had trouble syncing my device with iTunes 8, the only problem would be with QuickPwning with iTunes 8 then trying to sync. So you shouldn't need worry (for now).

Me too. 7.7 worked perfectly. I installed version 8, connected my iPhone 3G, BSOD and reboot. I have no Logitech software at all...(not that that should matter...)
Tried again, same story. Uninstalled 8, reinstalled 7.7, and I get the ".itl file cannot be opened because it was created with a newer version of iTunes" error.
I'm trying to love Apple, but these increasingly failed launches are worrying me. "Vista user with an apple portable device" is not a rare scenario, and really should be taken through Quality Assurance.
So... now I can't listen to any of my music purchased through the iTunes Store, I can't sync my iPhone.
Apple, you're looking more and more unstable as 2008 progresses. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but today's press conference was absolutely unnecessary; these were minor product line changes, not something worth throwing an "event." Please invest more in QA and less in these events. They're great when you introduce a new produce, i.e. iPhone... but a new version of old software and minor changes in your music players? Not a press event.
Thanks so much for listening, we appreciate you and wish you luck on what I'm sure is not a fun night for you.

What I like about it is that you can see albums that have two covers. You can than correct that and make a clean album. Looks so much better when you show off album art to people on your phone.
Two thumbs up from me.
syncing phone was fine.
Genius tab is genius!
