Now I have 2 or 3 bars everywhere and I have 5 bars with 4.0! Anyway I can downgrade?
Unless you saved you SHSH with saurik by using firmware umbrella or cydia. You can't downgrade.
I'm screwed then! What is SHSH again?
That's the POINT of 4.0.1
It's what it's supposed to do. It's why you upgraded.
Click the chart to see it larger:
You do know that 4.0.1 includes the new algorithm to (correctly) display the right number of bars for signal strength. Apple admitted that all previous versions had an incorrect algorithm.
Your signal hasn't changed, just how it is represented in bars.
Dude the bars didn't mean squat. Your signal hasn't changed a bit, just the way your phone shows the signal is now far more accurate. You were seeing incorrect information with the bars on 4.0
Do you understand why the change was made in 4.0.1?
Do you realize what 4.0.1 does? It doesn't magically degrade your signal, it simply displays it correctly. Your signal is exactly the same as it was before. Let's say you were getting roughly -100 dBs, before that would be displayed as 4 bars while now it's more like 2, which is correct. The bars on your display in no way affect your ability to make or quality of calls, it's simply a way of communicating the raw signal strength.
Like I said.
Yup you did. Now this also begs the question on how many people upgrading from a 3G or 3GS with 4.0 will see he bars on a new iPhone 4 and think it gets worse reception than their current phone? And after all the antena talk too.
You do know that your 5 bars everywhere before and your 2.-3 bars everywhere now is the same signal quality?
All Apple did was change the way they displayed the calculated signal strength.
The upgrade did nothing to your signal, only how it was displayed. Your phone works exactly the same as when it was on 4.0.
Stop staring at bars and start enjoying your iPhone.
Ignorance is bliss, I suppose?
Pre 4.0.1, your signal bar has been LYING to you due to wrong algorithm. The 4.0.1 is displaying your signal accurately.
All it does is to make you see the reality that you are not getting 5 bars everywhere because the real signal strength is actually less than that
Jailbreak and find some app that gives you faux bars.
I was happy to see that my newest iP4 came with 4.0.1
I personally liked the look of the older bars, the new ones are not as stream lined, I wish we had a choice, I would go back to the look of the older bars.
4.01 seemed like a cosmetic upgrade. Didn't help solve any issues, which is why I didn't upgrade. Happy with my fake 5 bars.
I was happy too until I couldn't make a call with 3 bars... Then I figured I'm sick of being lied to
Having better information is not cosmetic.
If your car's speedometer was suddenly off by 20% you would not call that a cosmetic problem.
+1 but then I did upgrade now I hate the look of the new bars, but there is no way to go back and I am not going to JB.
I'm still not buying the whole "the bars were incorrect" bs Apple is claiming. That was just their attempt at calming the antenna issue. I haven't updated mine.
No, that's a life threatening problem, but I see your point. This update made no improvements and changes nothing in regards to how your phone functions and how you make phone calls. A speedometer however, would change the way you drive.
4.0 had bad signal reception issues. All 4.0.1 did was to show you the actual poor reception of the phone.
