Apple has not learned.

Took 10 minutes to download a 230 mb file. Am I on dial up?

Apple failed first launch. Second was even worse. You'd think they learn and prepare the servers for today.

SHAME!

Now the small window on the screen is verifying the update, and the bar on the phone is about 45% across.

I know you're all waiting at the edge of your seats for this commentary.

Bar is about 2/3rd across, and the window is saying updating firmware.

Going faster. Now about 75% done.

Is the 3.0 software update released today the same as the developer GM (7A341)?
post #53 of 381
the long-waited 3.0 finally revealed. I love the copy & paste function. it works great. also the spotlight search is very handy. but does anybody know why i can't see either the MMS settings or the camera logo on Message sending page? I am in China and the carrier here, China Mobile actually supports MMS. I have been using swirlyMMS for a while before 3.0 and everything was fine. Now I wish I knew how to operate MMS. HELP~

I downloaded 3.0 (Gold Master) last week and my build number is 7A341. Hope I didn't get gipped.

Of course. The fact that I've been running all 3.0 beta builds since they each got released is unimportant. Your iPhone's installation health worries me more

Only took three to four minutes to download. I started it at around 1:25. About halfway through the install right now. Looks like the whole thing is going to take about ten minutes.
post #57 of 381
I just found out that you can disable the Find My iPhone feature without using a password.. Whats that about.. A thief could just switch that feature off the moment he got the phone.

For those still waiting for the process to finish...the entire thing from d/l (15mbps internet connection) to install and ready to go took around 23 mins. I'm off to explore, enjoy!

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?
post #70 of 381
The download speed fluctuated but seemed to speed up at the end. Good Luck!
post #71 of 381
No the 3.0 release version is (7A341)

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.

post #76 of 381
Install is painfully slow however. Over 6 minutes now on 16GB iPhone. 80% done on install.
post #77 of 381
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.
