    Confused

    Has 4.2 been released to the public?
    Or is it still Only for the beta/testers?

    I believe I read that 4.2 will be released to the public for all iDevices at the same time correct?

    No, it is not released to the general public yet. It still is in beta.

    And, isnt the first GM usually the final push before a release? It seems to strain credulity that there have been 2 re-pushes after the initial GM.
    From what I have read previously, the term Gold Master is used by DVD & CD producers to describe the disc containing the original data that is copied to thousands of retail discs for distribution and then sale. So they probably use the term in the same manner, describing it as the end of beta testing and it is now in the distribution state, except there are definetly no DVD's or CD's involved.

    Sorry I clicked on the wrong post. This was meant for someone else.

    no stay away until the full version is released. The beta will be buggy and has the potential to brick your iPhone

    hey... alright I updated to 4.2.1 but I was a bit disappointed...

    AirPlay does not support the old appletv and airprint does not support my oki printer... Besides these to major features in 4.2.1 that I can't make use of there are a few nice tweaks to it, such as making playlists on the go etc...

    Well nonetheless I downgraded back to 4.1 and rejailbroke my iPhone 4...

    So for all of you that want to try it out: It's safe, and you can easily downgrade back down provided you've got your shsh blobs saved

    But I guess it isn't really legal, but I mean how are they going to find out? With the thousands of dev UUID registered at apple..

    cheers

    They should make it so that we can access the wordcheck list and insert new words and delete others

    Darn. Some of these iPhone forum sites have it wrong then.

    You've been able to make playlists on the go since 4.0.0.

    Right here, my iPad is bricked because of this update. It jammed half way through the update and now I can't do anything to it. Can't restore, can't update, can't force it to downgrade. So how about eating those words? Unless you an magically kick my iPad out of recovery.

    Restoring to 4.2.1 jams at Preparing iPad for Restore, and trying 3.2.2 jams at Restoring iPad...
