WOW what a mess iOS 4
Well like a lot of you I updated my 3G. What a mistake that was. Took hours and hours. End up restoring it. I had to delete the .ipsw file. By doing that I was able to restore. I am running iOS 4 but cannot sync. itunes locks up. Cannot get my music from itunes onto my phone. This really sucks.
I know it's early but is there a fix? How can I go back to 3.1.3?

Sucks to be you, but yes you can go back to 3.1.3. However you will be stuck on the latest modem fimrware, which is 5.something.13. First you need to find the 3.1.3 .ispw for your model. You will also have to restore it from scratch. You will need to get your phone into DFU mode and if it fails, which is highly likely, you will need to use irecovery to get it up and running.
It's easier than it sounds.

Not sure why many users are having a hard time with 4.0. Last night when i did the upgrade to my 3g S 32gb from start to finish including backup and the download for 4.0 was only 17 min... and my iPhone runs really smooth, no problems. I also find that my battery life is MUCH better than 3.1.3.

So, I think you may be correct about JB's not using the Restore button to get the update.

A big part of people's problem was the very long time for backup of their iPhone. Mine took about 5 hours but I did the backup in the morning BEFORE iOS4 was released. The upgrade itself took about 20 minutes or so.
I miss some stuff from my jailbreak (true multitasking with backgrounder and proswitcher; SBSettings) but will be without this by Thursday anyway when I pick up my new phone.

hard to say
it's going to be hard to say why people are having problems there are so many variables and combinations of things that affect the outcome. Is it 3G or 3Gs? is it JB or not? what JB pwnage tool, blackra1n, Spirit,etc. if JB how customized was the phone? Mac or Windows? Which OS 3.1.2,3.1.3? and on and on. All I can say is mine was on iOS 4 in about 10mins that's downloading to complete I was surprised at how fast it was. I have a 3G and I was JB on 3.1.2 using pwnage tool which I always used since 1.x and I just did a sync, did a backup, hit restore and that started the upgrade to iOS 4. After I restored from backup and I was ready to rock and roll.
