    No problems on my end either with updating my iPhone 3G from 4.0 to 4.0.1. It went much more quickly updating from 4.0 to 4.0.1 than the update from 3.x to 4.0

    I'm seeing the same now...much less bars that before but this should not be a concern regarding 4.0.1 as this is what this update was stated it was going to do. This update 4.0.1 was to supposedly reflect a more accurate representation of the signal strength.

    I use to have 5 bars at my townhouse, but now it bounces between 3 and 4 bars.

    Hey guys I just downloaded the new iOS 4.0.1 and for some reason iTunes tells me that I have to restore my iPhone, so i agree and click on Restore but it fails and it keeps asking me to restore the iPhone but it never completes, now my iPhone is useless and I can't seem to restore it to it's previous working stage.

    I read somewhere to delete the . i p s w file in the Library folder and to re-download the iOS 4.0.1 again, I hope this works because now I can't even play World of Warcraft as my authenticator is installed on the iPhone.

    This is a nightmare, what else can I do to get my iphone back to normal, now I don't care for the update!

    Just hung up with Apple Support. New phone on the way. They have been inundated with calls. Firmware issue of some sort. Guy didn't even bother to troubleshoot much.

    Disturbing beyond belief.

    So, I had the Error 9. Went to the Apple store, and they tried to update. They got an Error 1166 and just replaced the phone.

    Here's the fix. Since most of you jailbroke your prior phones, see the following solution..

    I kept getting iTunes error 3014 right at the end of the firmware installation on the phone, so I spent hours troubleshooting using what I found on Apple's site and on the web. The last thing I tried, and the ultimate solution for me was to go into the hosts file (C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts-open with Notepad) and delete the 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com IP address-Saurik's server (IIRC, added to enable restore of 3GS after jailbreaking). I thought I'd have to hunt down another gs.apple.com IP address and write it in place of Saurik's IP address, or that iTunes would write it, but neither occurred, and my iPhone 4 restored to new without a problem after deleting that IP address and saving the file.

    Question: If I wait for 4.1 update... assume it will incorporate signal fix - saving me 570MB download to just one update? TIA!!

    I did not jailbreak or otherwise modify my iPhone 4 or the iPhone 3G that I had previously. I've tried 3 times to restore with no luck. I'm currently using another user account to download and try again.

    Went to the Apple store here in Indy. They went ahead and tested a few things and replaced it.

    Well tried over and over no luck. I have no phone I am giving up. I can't go to the Apple store until tomorrow after work. So I will have no phone for the rest of the night and tomorrow. I am returning my phone. I give up. I am fed up with apple.

    Thanks ShaverZBT - the only other thing I had to do was restart iTunes.
