    Keeping my fingers crossed (figuratively!).



    I've been using it since Beta 1. It's considerly more stable than the v2.0 you got lay year with your iPhones.

    This is real now. The developers builds were for just a small number of people comparatively. It's always different when a final release gets into the field. Some people may be interested in the procedure.



    Besides, you must stop turning off your humor gene.



    At any rate, while typing this, the bar finished, and the logo came back on by itself, and now another bar appeared.

    7A341 is the final build. If someone on here who downloaded 3.0 today wants to confirm, go right ahead.

    How does that make sense? So, did last week's downloaders get a "better, newer" version, or did Apple find issues and scale back today's build?

    The download speed fluctuated but seemed to speed up at the end. Good Luck!

    I see in iTunes an option to encrypt back-up.



    Waiting for the new progress bar to finish. Don't know what's happening, as there's no longer a window on the computer screen to say.

    Install is painfully slow however. Over 6 minutes now on 16GB iPhone. 80% done on install.

    Anyone feeling post-update depression yet?



    Seriously, after all the hype, except for the (boring) voice memo app and Spotlight there is essentially no difference on the surface between 2.2.1 and 3.0. I knew this beforehand of course, but one can't help but feel a bit of a letdown when the reality of the very minor changes hits home.



    One note:



    The update doesn't activate the Apple in-ear headphones as some had expected. I know that Apple carefully never said these headphones would work with the iPhone, but I know a lot were expecting they would after the update.



    They don't.

    Already found two bugs:
    1. App Store's custom icon order does not stick. I've rearranged to show Updates on as the 4th icon, but it reverts to "Featured", "Categories", Top 25", "Search", and "More" on subsequent launch.

    2. Video playback (e.g., on iPod, YouTube) seems to use 100% of the CPU. Tapping the screen to bring up video playback control often takes several seconds, sometimes a lot longer.

    Well, this is taking some time. It's almost at the 50% point.

    Can someone check the build version number for me? I'm not sure if I need to update from the 3.0 GM seed to the 'release' version.



    In iTunes, if you click the words "Software Version" with your iPhone highlighted, it should switch to the Build Version. Mine is showing build 7A341.



    Thanks
