    So with iTunes 9.2 on windows you can now update to iOS 4. I dont have to be on a developers list with my UDID number correct since it is a GM version?

    I tried the GM on mine and I get an unknown update error 3003

    My 3G is slower than heck and drives me crazy!

    Not sure this is completely accurate. I am on a 3GS with iOS4 GM and my baseband is 5.13.04 which is currently unable to be jailbroken/unlocked.

    Right, iOS4 isn't officially out yet. You have to download the IPSW file for your phone, then in itunes shift + click the check for update button and select the file you downloaded

    Based on him saying things like GM and not having a UDID on the dev list I would think the person knows iOS isn't officially out yet, rather was asking if he could use the iOS 4 GM... Since 9.2 wasn't previously available for windows yet.

    Ahh nothin like a little home button + sleep button kick in the pants to make your iPhone work as it should.


    I'm seriously tired of the 10 seconds it takes to create a new text!

    So the general consensus im getting is that 4.0 works like crap on a 3G? I have the ipsw and itunes 9.2 but I dont want to update to something thats even slower than 3.0 and could possibly cripple any apps that are not compatible.

    Well I figured mine couldn't get any slower.. the upgrade to 4.0 probably did it some good if there was a bunch of crap wrong with my 3x os.

    So far so good! Oh and the retina display in iOS 4 is amazing......... :D

    I'm wondering if I should install the GM on my 3G... I mean, it can't get much worse right lol... Can we fall back to 3.1.3 if 4 is horrendously slow?

    Yeah I guess you're right. I'll stick to 3.1.3 until Apple releases it officially - then i can whine to them about it if need be. I need my phone for work and it would not be good having a brick instead of a tetherable iPhone heh.

    I think you can always put the phone into USB recovery mode where it says 'connect to itunes' and at that point specify a 3x IPSW file



    But.. I thought iOS 4 was supposed to allow backgrounds.... mine is just black. I don't see where to set it. I KNOW this damned thing can handle a background.

    if it's like my iPad, you can go into the photo gallery and 'use as wallpaper' or 'use as lockscreen'

    On a side note, I just looked at my photos.. which were geotagged.. that's pretty fantastic that I can click on a place and see what photos I took there!!

    oh and a side side note, my phone is no longer an 8GB iphone.. the capacity is now 6.9GB.
