    Just curious why the size is almost twice the size of the 4.0 update?

    I was wondering the same thing. iOS 4.01 is twice the size of iOS 4.0.
    So WTF???

    Okay, compare iPhone 4 firmware to iPhone 4 firmware, not old iPhone firmware to iPhone 4 firmware. Obviously iPhone 4 got many more features to support so it has a bigger firmware.

    I think it trashes a lot of it when it installs aswell.
    It contains the entire OS and ways of extracting i think
