    I have an iPhone 4 and 4.1 has really supercharged my battery. I am currently at 70% for 1hr 37 use and 24 hours of standby! Anyone else notice a big increase?

    Yea, I've noticed a change as well since installing 4.1. this morning. I've been at 100% for like the pass 3 hours.

    LOL! Don't tell me. Safari was snappier, too?

    4.1 GM and the version you restored to yesterday are THE SAME. The only difference is that you restored, so clearly something was fubar with your own OS.

    For the last time, the 4.1 GM and the 4.1 from Apple's site now are BIT FOR BIT IDENTICAL. They are THE SAME FILE.

    I hope you know that the transition from 100%-99% is flawed, you're not really at 100% battery for 25 minutes of usage.

    You cannot rely on the battery meter until you have recalibrated your battery by completely discharging and recharging it.

    No, I wasn't aware of that. But, regardless, the battery meter still remained at 100% much longer than before. And I assume 4.0 also had the same 25 minute flaw, so it's kind of a moot point.

    Just because it's a GM doesn't mean it can't change between that and the release date.

    4.0 was the perfect example. The 4.0 GM had game center on it...the official release did not.

    Yeah haha. A couple weeks, and there'll be more complaints than anybody could imagine, and we'll all be begging for 4.1.1.

    4.1 Official update has really improved my battery over 4.1 GM.

    I can goto sleep and wake up for wake and my battery is still 100%. Using it all day it's only at 92%!

    When using 4.1 GM my battery would be down to 40%-50% with the same usage. Both firmwares were installed as new not back up from DFU mode.

    Correct, and that was the only difference. However, the MDS Hash file from the 4.1 GM and 4.1 on Apple's server now are EXACTLY the same.

    Keep kidding yourself if you must. Both 4.1 updates are the same file. Something else was causing your issues.
