One thought on “iPhone and iTouch 2.1 software update

  1. My brand new iPhone (10 days old) just got bricked. I tried to install the update and walked away for a good hour. Came back and it was hanging at around 75%. Left for another 45 min or so. Still hanging. So I unplug it and it tries to restore. It hangs again around 75%. 1 hr later, same thing. So I do a system reset using the sleep/home hold trick and now it’s restoring again. Thank god I’m within ATT’s 30 days. I can’t believe this phone is getting bricked. And everything is legit. No jailbreaks or anything. Up until now, the battery was poor. Now I’ve lost faith in these apple crapgrammers.
