The iPhone 3G reportedly was facing many Network Issues, mainly the bad 3G reception and frequent call drops as mentioned in the previous posts. Rumors were all around the net about Apple promising to issue a Software Fix for this. Well it seems they’ve indeed issued a fix, but as usual they’ve provided no Detailed Change Log and only mentioned Bug Fixes in the Changes list.
The 2.0.2 Firmware was launched for both the iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G and iPod Touch.
Unofficial ChangeLog is as Follows :
- No new settings appear to have been included.
- Some users report faster browsing, though this may be due to cleared cache.
- Typing lag may be reduced.
- Apps don’t require updates; NetShare still works.
- Transition from music list to Coverflow has changed.
Note that there are also reports of Few Applications not Working after the Firmware Update. The list of Apps reported to have problems are :
- Mobile News
- Box Ofice
- Wiki Me
- City Transit
Currently the only Direct Link available is for the iPhone. Will add iPod Touch 2.0.2 Link later. Till then download using iTunes. NOTE that this will void any hacks you’ve performed, will nullify the Jail Break and Lock your iPhone (if Unlocked via PwnageTool) !
