    if i have the 3.0 gm (which i do) do i need the official 3.0 update being released today? and if so, how would i go about getting it, considering my software version already says 3.0? is there a way to put back on 2.2.1 if necessary?
    thanks

    Gold Master = final build. It wouldn't be called gold master if it wasn't.

    Once the firmware is officially released.. You can just do a regular restore. iTunes will download the "official" 3.0 and install that.

    It's just iPhone developers that have access to the 3.0 GM, but not to worry, 3.0 is out today for us all.

    Or anybody can get it off of their favorite torrent site. I've had it for about a week.

    So can I download the "official" 3.0 OS when it drops or do I technically already have it with the GM? Reason I'm asking is because the GM has been running a little slow for me so I wanted to download the public version. Anyway to do so?

    GM (in theory) should be the same bit-for-bit as the public version. Otherwise they wouldn't have called it GM.

    But if you want to do this, delete the copy on your machine (the "GM"), connect to iTunes, and click Restore. This will download and install the copy from Apple's servers. (Of course, you have to wait until the "public version" is online to do this).

    It will be overwritten by the public firmware when you do a Restore.
