    iOS 4.1 today?
    I thought i read that iOS 4.1 was to be released today, but iTunes keeps telling me that 4.02 is the current version.

    when do they usually release the update? is it later in the day?

    Did they say 1 week in the video? I thought they did also and am eagerly awaiting it also to see if they made the 3G a bit more useable.

    Don't take this for the for sure truth, but this is what I found.

    Thanks James for the heads up. It's downloading now. I can't wait.

    Anandtech has a review on IOS 4.1 on the iPhone 3G. Much faster than 4.0.2 and in a couple of things faster than 3.1.3!!

    It's all updated. Update was normal speed and not the SNAILS pace like 4.0! So far I can for sure see a difference especially when typing. It's keeping up now. Apps open a lot faster in many cases.

    It will be interesting to see what others notice when they upgrade their 3G. Also if the iPhone 4 issues are fixed like the Proximity Sensor.

    My iPhone3G failed to update to 4.0.2 last night and now fails to restore either. From the file name, I think it is now trying to apply 4.1 - not that it does much good now it is stuck.

    Oddly enough, about 2/3 of the way though the download, the iPhone times out and shuts down. Coincidentally, it is about 2/3 of the way through the restore that it hangs. My guess is the stupid phone switching off corrupts the download each time.

    Hard to believe all this farce with iOS4 is not just a ploy to make users of iPhone3G upgrade to iPhone4. I am not yet tempted to do that, but the iPod Touch is looking very tempting. Even the Android might be worth a try.

    After the awesome iPad, how could Apple sink this far?


    Edit - is there any way to download the new file without having the iPhone waiting to shutdown part way through please?

    The Download comes through iTunes. The iPhone shutting down should not affect the download but it would sure affect the install that is for sure. When is the phone shutting down exactly? That does not sound normal at all. Even when 4.0 first came out, besides waiting over an hour, I had no issues installing it.

    The iPhone shuts down 2/3 of the way through the download.

    The update - and subsequent restore attempts - all hang about that distance through the procedure, I.e. The progress bar on the phone is just under the right hand edge of the apple logo.

    Why was I dumb enough to update yesterday to 4.0.2 instead of waiting until today for 4.1?

    after messing with my 3G on iOS 4.1, i have noticed a little bit of speed increase in apps and such, but not as much as the hype was about. but still it did improve from painfully slow to slightly faster than before 4.01

    Just a heads up. It seems faster after using it a bit. When it was first updated I saw some improvement, but after an hour or so I opened it and it feels even faster. All the Apps I opened opened faster. Seems faster after a bit of usage is what I am saying. At least that is what I noticed anyway.

    I wish I could help but after reading your last post, I am starting to wonder if it's not a hardware issue on the 3G itself. It sounds like you have tried pretty much everything.

    This is a shot in the dark but I wonder if DFU mode and restore to the old firmware would help?

    I got my iphone 4 yesterday and after using my dying 3g I thought it was fast ... its now even faster.

    I spent about 5 hours last night downloading 4.1 onto 3 different generations of iphone (unfortunately I suffer from extremely slow broadband). result:

    Wife's iPhone 4 - seems to have sorted out all the bugs (although she never experienced any antenna issues) and HDR/ Tone Mapping camera option looks interesting - can't wait to see results?

    My 3GS - Can't detect much difference to be honest - slight speed bump. Game Center (sic) of little interest to me.

    Old 3G - Thankfully, with the increased speed, the phone is now usable again (which is just as well as I am giving it to my God daughter for her birthday)

    Roll on 4.2 (mainly for my iPad)
