    That's weird. i would plug it back in and click the Check for Update button again. When it asks you what to do, make sure you hit the download and install option.

    Easy way to check for updates is click "Help" on the top menu bar and then click About iTunes.

    That's good!

    The updates for iPhone basically reinstall the entire OS, which is what that's pretty much doing on that screen.

    Nope i still have 2.0.2.

    I have official not jailbroken.

    when i click update it says 2.1 requires itunes 8 but i'm sure i have itunes 8 and it says would you download itunes 8 and i click download and then the stuff with the iphone happens like backup.

    I dont get it. My itunes has genius if that helps.
