    I've only dowloaded and installed the 'updater patch' over 3G network for the moment, but it wouldn't let me proceed to dowload and install iOS 6.0.1 over 3G? Unless mistaken, I was quite sure I did this in the past (over 3G) on one occassion.

     

    Regarding the update; I'm getting some good download speeds over 3G on iPhone 5 at the moment and would hate for that to suddenly deteriorate for any reason if updating to 6.0.1, therefore I'm a little hesitant and might wait for more feedback.

    Supposedly, it is suppose to fix some of those issues & allow for over the air updates on the iPhone 5 (that I guess were not working)

    The update is over 50MB which is why you can't do it over the 3G network.

     

    It has had no affect either way on my LTE speeds, which is a good thing..

    So there is no patch for iPhones other than the 5 for the Wifi issues that have been plaguing many of us?

     

    This is the list of items in the patch according to Arstechnica.com

    This update contains improvements and bug fixes, including:

    - Fixes a bug that prevents iPhone 5 from installing software updates wirelessly over the air
    - Fixes a bug where horizontal lines may be displayed across the keyboard
    - Fixes an issue that could cause camera flash to not go off
    - Improves reliability of iPhone 5 and iPod touch (5th generation) when connected to encrypted WPA2 Wi-Fi networks
    - Resolves an issue that prevents iPhone from using the cellular network in some instances

    The patch I was refering to, was the "iOS updater" app to help the process along for installing 6.0.1.

     

    I think it was some time back during early iOS 5 that I was surprised and impressed at being able to install one particular version of iOS 5 I think over 3G, maybe I caught it at the point when it was possible with one running version only (maybe before being disabled or something) but sure enough I download it and it was over 3G. I remember being impressed at the time (maybe a network glitch at that point).

     

    I've downloaded iOS 6.0.1 into iTunes for now, will update soon.

    So, if I'm understanding what this software update does, it does NOT address the issues/bugs causing my iTouch 4 (with all software updates through 6.0) to crash, not only when at the App Store, but when opening items on Newsstand like The New York Times for example, erratic speeds, slow to open Apps, etc.  I've tried some of the 'fixes' others have suggested but no overall improvement.  I'm not a tech person so may not be describing this correctly.  I've been waiting for the software update to fix these and other problems for weeks, and it appears 6.0.1 is a huge file and doesn't address all problems.  The so-called "Apple user experience" is gone.  But I understand the head of Apple software is also "gone" as of this week.  I've rambled too long but <sigh> guess I need to wait longer before doing the 6.0.1 update?

    it doesn't seem to have addressed wifi problems. my phone will still not transition between multiple wifi networks (home, office, cafe) without getting completely screwed up.

    I still have the problem of iPhone unable to connect to cellular network at certain instances.

    iOS 6.0.1 did not fix it :-(

    Ios 6.0.1 has made my iPhone 4 dead. Can't get cell signal, goes from searching to no service, this is crazy. I use this phone for work, this *****. Any fix???

  • 12. Re: iOS 6.0.1

    Well I haven't updated to 6.0.1 just yet and the above horror stories are not very inspiring for me to bite the bullet. Don't get me wrong though as most updates are great and the major ones bring fantastic new features which I am currently enjoying in iOS 6 on the iPhone 5 - credit to Apple! However I believe in the notion where if it is not broken then don't fix it and so far I have been fortunate enough not to encounter any problems (apart from the networks provider's own occasional issues). I've not even encountered the alleged keyboard problem with lines going through it that apparently some users have endured.

     

    However the problem is now that the 'iOS Updater' patch will not leave me alone as it constantly produces a rather annoying pop-up that repeatedly keeps advising me of the update and only offering an 'OK' button within the dialog box that you inevitably have to press in order to dismiss it and doing so takes you straight into the settings>general>update screen which you then have to either update or forcefully exit. Additionally every time you power the iPhone 'on', again your presented with the same tiresome pop-up screen having to say OK and then forcefully exiting the update screen which you have been catapulted to; it's like harassment and bad programing philosophy like those unwanted pop-ups that wouldn't leave you alone from websites in the nineties (whish I new how to stop the persistent perpetual nag screen without having to update).

    Keep resisting the update. It has totally screwed up syncing music and videos. This is freaking ridiculous, Apple. Ugh. I am trying to restore- have been for many many hours now. Grrrrrr.
