Updating to 4.0 with a Mac, ERROR 13!
I am on a developers list. I have a 4.0 build. I use a Macbook Pro. I have a 3GS, but when I click option + restore and select the firmware it says...
" iphone server cannot be contacted at this time or is temp unavailable "
Has anyone ran into this issue? Thanks.

I don't think installing the Beta of 4.0 is going to allow you to run Skype in the background. That's going to require a new 4.0-compatible version of Skype (to use the new VOIP multi-tasking API's) which won't be available until the official 4.0 release is here (and given Skype's track record with updates -* where's VOIP over 3G *- it might be much later than that). Same thing goes for any other app you want running in the background (Pandora, GPS, etc.). Even for the quick state saving that regular apps (e.g. some random game) are supposed to do when backgrounded, I think you need new versions, so wouldn't expect MT to work right even for those.
What I gathered from the keynote was that aside from apps using the special APIs (for VOIP, GPS, audio streaming), what would really happen when you MT is that each app would do a complete and total state save, then be terminated, then quickly relaunched with its state exactly restored when you flip back to it. So you "think" it's MT-ing and running in the background but it's really not. Kind of like hibernating a Windows PC. (I could be wrong about this though- I haven't had time to dig into the SDK's release notes yet.)

And I'm not going to tell you how to revert to 3.1.3 should you by chance put 4.0 on your phone and then be stuck with the buggyness.
Also I heard this year Apple is going to let beta's expire for a few days before releasing a new version just so people like you will be stuck without a phone for a few days.
Oh and just to be clear - Skype will not run in the background just because you load 4.0. NO APPS will run in the background because none of them have been released using the MT api under 4.0 (no pandora running, not texting while navigation app is running, not nothing). So the only benefit to upgrading to 4.0 is having folders and if you have a 3GS be able to put a background wallpaper on your homescreen. Can't say that it's worth it for those things.

I did however install via Xcode rather than iTunes, so that may be making a difference.
As for the folders, anyway else think they're ugly?
