iPhone 2.0 upgrade

With the release of the iPhone 2.0 firwmare (available from Apple's own servers), we installed the software on our previously "jailbroken" and "unlocked" iPhone without any problems (no word yet on whether the unlock is still working). The entire process took about 20 minutes (maybe a bit longer) using iTunes' restore function (download the software and click option. We have the first screenshots of the painfully long process.

    We need to hear from someone who has a SIM from a provider other than AT

    So is the iPhone...

    easier or harder to use in order to download apps than a typical WinMo handset?

    Touch Touch no Touch

    No Software 2.0 for Touch owners in the UK 10:30pm after the apps have been out there for well hours :-(

    Correct URL

    The URL given was an Akamai direct URL, a link to the company the distributes files for Apple. It isn't working now, but I was able to work backwards and determine the real URL on Apple's domain:

    http://info.apple.com/iPhone/061-4955.20080710.bgt53/iPhone1,22.05A347_Restore.ipsw

    Enjoy!

    Not final version?

    In the last photo (presumably setting up Mail.app) why does it have both MobileMe AND .Mac?

    Bug

    Did the upgrade but noticed I can't change my wallpaper now. I can pull up a picture from my photo library, but when I want to select "Set Wallpaper" nothing happens with any of the buttons except the top right-hand "cancel" button. I wonder how many more issues are going to showup
