    Anyone else getting this? Is it just the servers being slammed by everyone downloading everything?

    I've had this before. It wouldn't even update via iTunes. I had to factory reset it and set up as new. Only then would it update.

    I don't have mine heavily customized (yet) so probably no big deal. Do purchases get restored automatically?

    Yeah, I've seen some references to this. Feel for you...

    Okay, so I managed to restore using Apple Configurator. Was worried for a while though.... :)

    Had to do a reset on mine to get the update. Would be nice if Apple would store the configuration and restore app purchases automatically in such cases...
