    So for whoever you are that said it was coming out on 9/2/13 that was completely impossible because the GM Seed was NOT even compiled yet.

    official time of the GM Seed = 09/04/2013 @ 03:52 A.M. Pacific Time.

    The fact that it didn't come out on 9/2 is proof enough to say that it wasn't coming out on 9/2.

    They were just random guesses. Like the folks that thought it would come out on the third because of the Labor Day Holiday.

    Edit: Time/Date stamp on my file is 9/3 @ 10:52 PM. One of us isn't localized. :)

    Can't help it, I'm cracking up!

    OP must've been really miffed at the person who said it was coming out on the 2nd...

    That's not the time it was compiled, it was the time it was touched. When Apple builds the IPSW, they go through the firmware's directories and touch each file with a set time/date or the current time/date. They then encrypt the disk images, then touch those and the other files within the IPSW. It was compiled from the source code over many weeks as it was put together in chunks, not the whole thing at once. Thus, the touching to make it uniform.

    Hey, I guess that's what these forums can be used for. Even though I prefer a more point driven / thought out thread, why not let someone blow some steam?
