    Oh 114, it's you I miss
    Your lack of bugs, your stable bliss...
    This 2.0 stuff is not for me
    Why, oh why, did I go 3G?

    This laggy buggy living hell
    Makes me pine for what you did so well!
    Browsing, texting...smooth as butter
    Email, iPod...like no other

    With 114, I had fewer woes
    Scrolling was silky, covers just flowed
    Reboots were rare, freeze ups were nil
    Contacts were frisky, like teens on the pill

    The simple things are all I want
    I don't need Twitter or games to flaunt
    Just gimme back my 114
    Forget the apps, forget the store

    Who needs Texas Hold 'Em Flashlight Monkey?
    What good are apps if they make the phone wonky?
    If you can't handle sharing (RAM that is)
    Pack up your Klondikes and get out of the biz

    2.0 can't compare to you
    It's bloated, it's slow, it's got the flu
    "It does way more!" some will scoff
    As their phone stutters and putters and lets out a cough

    3G is fast, to that I'll admit
    Alas, I have but one use for it;
    To log on here and read all the moans
    Of bug laden apps all crashing home

    The good times are over, his Steveness has spoken
    (Unlocking is tricky, even for the jailbroken)
    2.0; it's said and done
    Let's hope things get better with 2.1

    To 114, whom we hardly knew,
    I bid you farewell, au revoir, adieu
    As firmware goes, you were like a rock
    2.0 can suck my...lemon.

    Here's to you 1.1.4 (pours out liquor on iPhone from the 40oz App Store App:D)

    Yep, some may certainly be tempted to "upgrade to a more familiar firmware."

    It's funny how your own ad campaign can be turned back around on you. :D

    Hahaha, wow, you have way to much time...

    But seriously, it needed to be done.

    1.1.4 was awesome. I had zero problems. I remember having problems before that and they just all melted away when it was released.

    If only it can be that smooth when we get 2.1....if only.....

    AMAZING!

    YES I wish I would of read this before I posted my problems. I don't get how Apple could release such a piece of garbage??? This new firmware is horrible! Where the f*&% did quality control go????

    Yeah i agree. 1.1.4 was the tour de force of firmwares, which is why i'm downgrading back to it this morning. I've been more than patient with 2.0.x, whilst its been 'usable' for the most part...sometimes it goes bug crazy and just starts acting up.

    The breaking point for me was when my ipod skipped whilst i was txting someone and shortly afterwards the phone reset itself

    I'll go back to 1.1.4 and wait till Apple sort their issues out

    That, was on the level of 1.1.4, pure brilliance. 1.1.3 added the features, then 1.1.4 added the thickest coat of polish ever. I miss it a lot!!

    If iPhone 3G came with 1.1.4 that would make for the most amazing phone ever. I said that on here already and I got shot down in seconds, apparently features are more important than stability (for the stupid among us I would say...)

    That really was a great poem, hitting every issue perfectly.

    Very clever. :)


    Since I came to the iPhone with the 3G, I've never experienced this mythical 1.1.4. Did it really take at least five firmware updates to get to perfection, and how long after launch day was it released?

    I'm not complaining about 2.0.2, or about 2.0.x period, as I've had only minor problems overall, but I'm wondering how things were before 1.1.4 came out, and how bad the problems were, because I'm reading things from original iPhone owners that make it seem like 2.0 was the worst thing they ever experienced in their lives.

    It took 8 months from 1.0.0 to 1.1.4, which is pretty impressive if you ask me. :)

    1.1.4 is becoming a mythical firmware, it will be told in ye tales of olde, in houses, on dark nights...

    :D

    8 months isn't bad at all, and I'm sure that it will take even less time this go round. I understand that it must be frustrating to go from no problems back to very buggy software, but let's get some perspective here.
