Apple releases iPhone 2.0.1 update, adds "bug fixes"

updated 07:50 pm EDT, Mon August 4, 2008

iPhone v2.01 released

Apple released iPhone version 2.0.1 update via iTunes Monday evening. The 242MB update contains various "bug fixes," according to Apple's installation note. The update "supercedes all previous versions" of iPhone software. There's no word yet if the update contains any additional features. In addition, Apple also unveiled the iPod touch 2.0.1, most likely containing similar bug fixes. As with all previous versions of the iPhone and iPod touch operating systems, the update is available through iTunes.

One MacNN first-generation iPhone owner who installed the firmware update reported no problems, although a number of iPhone apps required updating. Users on Apple's iPhone support forums also reported having to update apps, and one user said the update caused all third party apps "to crash."

Version 2.01 is the first update to the second-generation iPhone software, which was released July 11.

Update: A MacNN writer noted that when dragging applications about the interface, with the intent of reorganizing icons on multiple pages, users are no longer required to re-assert their finger to the edge of the screen in order to skip multiple pages.

    Still the lag-problems

    Still, when I was playing Texas Hold'em, its impossible to write SMS for example. So no fix for that problem.

    Jailbreaking?

    I'm going to guess this breaks the jailbreaking apps like Pwnage Tool... Any adventurous MacNN readers want to try this out for themselves and report back?

    jealbreaking: NO

    Looks like the answer to my question is "No"; Pwnage Tool reports an error on the new firmware and will no longer patch it.

    Jailbreakers will have to wait for an updated version of Pwnage Tool.

    Worked Fine

    This update worked fine, although it did install ALL downloaded apps to the iPhone (whether I had them originally installed or not). The update to ToDo went fine. All my original data was saved, and shows up nicely.

    Hung

    My update stopped with an unknown error. Now it's hung with the icons of the USB plug and iTunes on the screen. Shutting it down does no good. Now what?

    the update went smooth here. No problems at all. It only downloaded my checked apps and video is working normally.

    Better luck next time

    I still get the 0xE8000001 error message. I'm a real hardcore Mac fan but I'm really disappointed with the fact that they can't fix that problem. By chance, I have 2 OS installed so my iPod Touch is working under 10.4.11 but I have no luck under 10.5.4. I don't want to boot under 10.4.11 everytime I need to put something on my iPod Touch. I'm gonna wait a few more weeks and bring it back to the Apple store if the problem persists.

    no problems here in the absence of an iPhone or iPod touch, everything works beautifully just as before. :-;)
