iPhone 3G Fix Via IOS 4.1 Coming Wednesday

CWmike writes "Along with new functionality included with iOS 4.1 — ranging from 'high dynamic range' (HDR) photography that produces more detail in over- and under-exposed areas, to the launch of Apple's Game Center multi-player online network — CEO Steve Jobs promises that the update will fix some of the bugs in iOS 4.0 that users have been complaining about since that version's June 21 debut. Owners of older iPhones, especially 2008's iPhone 3G, are hoping that iOS 4.1 solves the slow-down problems many have experienced since they upgraded this summer. Jobs listed 'iPhone 3G performance bugs' last week when he ticked off the fixes to expect in iOS 4.1. According to, which got its hands on an unauthorized version of iOS 4.1, the update outperformed iOS 4.0 in informal tests, although the speed improvements were sometimes minor."

pdf fix for the 2G ? (2, Interesting)

How about a pdf vulnerability fix for the 2G? Or is it too much to ask for some basic OS support for a 2 year old $500 Apple product?
And while they are at it, maybe they could reverse the recent degradation of the 2G map accuracy. Might be just AT&T reducing the number of 2G towers, though.

2 years old? Where the hell do you live? The iPhone 2G should be sold in pairs, the way they arrived on Noah's Ark...

I am greatly pleased with this upgrade! My Parrot RKi8400 now functions as I imagine it should. It now has fluid control over the phone when it is hooked to the dock connector scrolling and folder access speed is greatly increased. Camera is fast and the picture quality is improved.

At last!!! (1)

I'm sure that Apple lost many of the 3G iphone customers from the 4.0 update. Most iphone 3g users that I know complain about this problem for about some time now. I'm one of them. I even had to google a way back to 3.1.3 version of the iphone OS to have my cell phone back. Also we don't have an official way to go back to an older version and we have to "hack" a way through it with 3rd party solutions. I hope ios 4.1 will fix the problem permanently and also I hope they improve their quality control at backwards compatibility for software that comes out from now on. (1)
