    Just synced for the first time, having downloaded a zip file with a bunch of photos, taken some screenshots, etc. Was expecting a relatively long backup - but no. Whizzed through.

    There was a pretty long backup when installing 4.2 but not as long as some I've had on the prior firmwares.

    Haven't tried it with new content in magazine apps yet (the worst culprits for 5-hour backups in the past) - can anyone else running 4.2 GM share their syncing experiences?

    Tested with a download of a new Pixelmags magazine. Smooth and swift backup and sync. Hoo-rah. :cool:

    It's ridiculously faster than 3.2 for backing up.

    This is beating Folders for me as Best 4.2 Feature. I used to avoid syncing for fear I'd be stuck for hours. Which only made it worse when I did sync.
