Thread: "iBricks:" iPhone 3G User Sues Apple Over iOS 4.0

  1. #61
    The problem alot of people are missing is she was misinformed by apples new update log when updating to a new iso it did not state that when you install this firmware there may be a performance hit, or that your phone may run slower than a week in the jail, it only listed benefits.

    So what I'm saying and why apple will be done for false advertisement is because the state improments when there are none.

    If everyone could just go buy a new iPhone everytime one came out they probably would, but not everyone can, so statements about it's old get a new one are redundant.

    I have 2 kids and a wife I can't afford a new iPhone as soon as they come out I had to wait 2 month (I did buy it out right 590.00) but I already had a contract and never wanted a new one.

    But 590 is fOoking nuts for phone lol last one I will be buying for well over a year.

You just have to accept that you have older hardware and if you want the new features then you're going to have to give something up.

    You could try to install 1.x firmware on a 3G and just keep phone/sms/email with a few basic PDA apps and it will probably run blazing fast. In life there are always tradeoffs. She needs to go to the genius bar so someone there can restore her phone with the older firmware so she gets over it. You can't sue because your old phone can't run new software as well as a newer one with better hardware.
    You can easily reinstall XP...

    That's the issue I have had with Apple's handling of iOS. I haven't heard any arguments that justify the inability to downgrade to lower versions. A user can downgrade to virtually any Mac OS they choose to and Apple does nothing to prevent that. How is it any different on the iPhone?

    She started this to get Apple to do the right thing, not for profit. $5,000 is not big enough to get most people to file a suit and wait for it to come to judgement, waste time researching and most likely she hired a lawyer for this.
    She filed this as class action so people who have the same problem can join in on this, which benifit the 3G and 3GS society. I fail to see how that is decline of society..

    You don't have to jailbreak to downgrade. You will however need a tool like recboot or tiny umbrella to kick it out of recovery.

    iOS 4 is not slow on 3GS, but is slow for 3G. If 3G can restore to 3.0 fw what is the issue? Why doesn't she just restore to that? I think i need more info on this article...something doesn't seem right.

    I guess iPhone 3G needs to be jailbroken to restore?

    No, as x98car just said, you don't have to jailbreak to downgrade. Not with the 3G, not with any model.

    very simply, I paid for the device, met my contract obligation and should be able to use that device any way I like from there forward. I agree that apple should not have further obligation than the warranty period to support or supply new versions of the iOS... but to entice and then load a version of iOS that is going to turn that device into a paperweight is VERY Wrong - I hope they get their asses kicked and I for one will not be buying any further ipod and itouches and iphones for my son because of this practice (if enough people took the same stance, this would self correct but unfortunately there are good products and there are many lemmings).

    lol, im not sure who you hang with, but im far from living in my parents basement. i have all of the mentioned responsibilities and still manage to buy a new phone. i guess everyone is different........

    Just like in PCs, just because it can be installed and can run, it doesn't mean its going to be at its full potential. Funny how we have a nice forum like this where users can learn from others, yet some users don't bother to fully investigate anything like new versions of iTunes, or new firmwares for example, but are quick to jump on the blame wagon.

    I noticed a lot of users who are for this case are using the "Well Apple has all this money, and make a lot of profit from this stuff..blah blah blah..., who cares its only 5k" Thats like saying its ok to sue someone because they can afford it. Its a business, not UNICEF.


    A real solution would be to have Apple create a specific tool for users to restore the phones to an earlier build of the iOS if they wish to keep the handset. That way the average user doesnt feel overwhelmed on performing the downgrade, or they can come to the forums and get some guidance

    i have all versions of the phone prior to the latest one. I gave my lil brother my 2G and my mother the 3G version. All of these were not upgraded to the latest capable build. Reason was because I did my research. People need to take the time and research. Look twice and act once. Safe yourself the headache.

    ^^But you need to have the info SHSH into your computer.
    Problem is Apple should freely allow people to downgrade to which ever iOS they feel would work better for them.

    No, you don't technically have to Jailbreak to downgrade, however the process ultimately lies in doing the same thing you would do to jailbreak, which is as we all know kicking it into recovery.

    That being said, the normal user has very little to no clue about these sorts of things. Most of us here do, or at least are competent enough to find those that do and apply their knowledge.

    When iOS4 came out, my wife upgraded like everyone else. She had no desire to Jailbreak no matter how hard I tried to convince her...

    So iOS4 is pushed, she upgraded and suddenly functionality of just about EVERY native was gone. Notes, SMS, Contacts. The thing ran horribly to the point where everyday for the week she had it was nothing more than a headache. I downgraded her phone back to 3.1.3, jailbroke it and she's happier than a clam. Everything works fast and as it should.

    Not one of my friends had any luck with iOS4 on their 3G phones.

    With all of these reports going on, it reminds me of the debacle that Microsoft had when they pushed Vista onto computers that shouldn't have had Vista on it...

    Like my laptop that I am typing... Had Vista on it and spent the next week searching for drivers. Downgrading is not a pleasant process no matter how you look at it.

    It also doesn't help that when you downgrade an iPhone, you lose all your information that you accrued when you had the new iOS, but many of the apps start to become iOS4+ dependent which means that you have a phone that one day could access a wealth of apps to a phone that can only access a fraction of them.

    They might have something depending on what the findings are. Of course, it could just be some pissy customer.
    Herp a derp a derp a doooo!

    Excuse me guys but doesn't the 3GS also suffer from lag and slowdown? I can swear that I've noticed a speed reduction on mine.

    Don't have to remind you how often people just click "upgrade" thinking it is actual "upgrade" without doing any research, should they be punished because of this? I don't think so.

    I also have multiple iPhones. Gave 2 of the 2G to my best friend's kids, and gave him my 3G. My 3GS went to my ex-girlfriend and I am playing with the 4 right now (again). I should not have to tell them NOT to upgrade, and they should have the ability to downgrade back if they have problem with the iOS.

    yea this is definitely long overdue

    Glad to see you bothered to read, I said 3GS units were fine with 4.x, not 3G.

    A 3G can be downgraded without jailbreaking, however depending on the baseband, it *may* need manually kicking out of recovery mode as the restore will error when it reaches that point in flashing the firmware.

    Obviously it did or else you would not say decline to society when in actuality it is helping it out. You are the moron.
