    Why do you sweat small things? :)

    If you're worried about the SMS hack, then download it. The hysteria has died down, so the download should go with out a hitch.

    If, you're not worried about the hack, then you should wait for 3.1, unless like me you just felt like updating to get a fresher iPhone. I've had no problems.

    Any time any software or change comes out your going to read horror stories. Sometimes people have defective phones and it was bound to happen anyways. If your install didn't work, wouldn't you post on here and say something too? What if your install went perfect, would you post then? My point is that the percentage of people with install errors is so small.

    software can be fixed with more software... scratches and cracks can't be fixed with more scratches and cracks

    I have updated 4 phones so far to 3.0.1 without a hitch. Not sure what bugs you are referring to, unless you are talking about the problems some people have had with iTunes not being able to install the update and leaving the user without an operational phone at the end. Pretty sure that's not an actual bug in the 3.0.1 software...3.0.1 is 3.0 with one fewer bug in it (the SMS vulnerability has been patched).

    I have a hard time believing that anybody has actually permanently bricked their phone by installing 3.0.1, or if they did, that it was actually the act of doing so that caused it. iPhones are for the most part pretty much "unbrickable," what with the DFU mode and all. Pretty sure that if you can't restore with DFU or can't enter DFU in the first place, you probably already had a hardware issue under the surface to begin with, and it would have eventually manifested itself in one way or another, whether you tried to update to 3.0.1 or not.

    I would be curious to know if anybody who has actually suffered from the iTunes errors during installation has tried to do the update on a completely different computer; I have seen iTunes gack up in interesting and unique ways on unique machines. (Maybe somebody has already tried this and posted their experience, and I just missed it.)

    i updated my 3g without any issues. itunes download the firmware, it installs and didnt even have to do a restore once it was done. everything was exactly the way it was in 3.0.

    Yeah, zero problems here. It literally just patched the SMS hack, how could anything go wrong?

    What bugs?

    my 3GS is working the same under 3.01 as it did on 3.0 and given that the update addresses a security hole in SMS, I'd say its safer to apply it then not.

    It's up to you if you want/need the 3.0.1 update.

    Are you worried about the SMS vulnerability? Then get the 3.0.1 patch.

    Want the latest update? Then get the 3.0.1 patch.

    Don't care about either of the two? Then stick with 3.0 and wait it out.

    I updated to 3.0.1 and haven't had any problems. If you're that worried, just wait for 3.1, but it's not worth starting a thread on here.
