    i panic and restored to 4.02 and it made me set i up as "new phone" i feel so stupid...

    I guess after setting up a new phone I can do a restore from a "pre 4.1" backup?:mad:

    i hope i dont lose my "angry Birds" progress :confused:

    i am such a n00b... seems it is installing ALL APPS i ever purchased :-(

    I hate this

    I am a n00bb

    iTunes 10 is out (run software update or go to apple.com/itunes) but iOS4.1 doesn't publically come out till next week. People running 4.1 now are using the Gold Master seed which doesn't require a developer account.

    Maybe instead of rushing to upgrade to 4.1 with the GM you should have waited to do it legitimately through iTunes when it was released. If you're such a "newbie" - wouldn't that have made more sense?

    Don't you have the option to Check for Updates or Restore and if you choose Updates (Shift + Update) and point to the .ipsw file I assume it just replaces the OS as any legit update would do.

    is this correct?

    No. GM is normally what is released to the public.

    This is just false. 4.1 GM seed is expressly for developer testing, only downloadable from Apple with a paid iOS developer account, with scary warnings that it shouldn't be deployed to any phone that isn't a development platform (i.e. not your real phone you use every day) presumably because of stability/bug concerns.

    rarely does change that much

    what i said is not false in the context of what he asked, he was asking if it needed to have a registered UDID, which i confirmed it doesn't. GM is pretty much what gets released, but anyone installing it should know it's not officially final. people always get hold of betas early for various things so this is nothing different

    I disagree. I don't think the person you were replying to even knows what "registered UDID" means. The fact remains, 4.1 is only available to developers at this point, not the general public, despite the technicality that if you can manage to find a copy from someone who has violated their Apple NDA you can manage to install it on any phone.

    Look -- people in this very thread were expressing confusion over the fact that 4.1 wasn't showing up in their iTunes despite claims that it was "released" by posters here. That's the "context" of what was asked. People are asking what's released, not what can be obtained illicitly and installed in violation of NDAs (and, imho, common sense).
