    Is it safe to assume that if iTunes/Apple validate the 4.1 GM install then the file is legit? Guess my concern is malware included in the GM updates available out there.

    I installed it and its working just fine, but who's to say what lies beneath the surface.


    when the final version is released, I'll just do a restore.

    I was thinking the same. BUT I downloaded it right after it hit the torrents which was right after it was put up on the dev site so I highly doubt someone had time to inject malware.

    So I can upgrade to 4.1 without being a dev? And could I do option+update or can I only do option+restore?

    Yes and you can do either. I did Option+Update and it's been running fine.

    Thank you guys. And the build number is 8B117? Just trying to make sure I download the right torrent. Also, should I remove Cydia's address from my host files (I put it in there about a week ago to try to downgrade to 4.0.1, but never got around to it).

    Thank. And the build number?

    Maybe he meant "impossible."

    That's what I was thinking too. I am pretty sure that has never happened, or at least been reported.
