    If you are using Yosemite, there are cases of it bricking iOS 8 updates due to iTunes 12 crashing. Keep that in mind. There are ways around it (moving around iTunes libraries, trying to get iTunes 11 on the latest Yosemite beta releases) and it is flaky.
    Been there, done that, got the T-shirt. Had to move to a Mavericks/iTunes 11.3.1 Mac and do the update.

    I always start with a fresh install with no backups, so I'll just update on Windows and then go back to my Mac to put apps and saved game files back on manually. That should do it.

    Because Apple doesn't allow it/do it that way. Need to do a full install instead of a delta update.

    Guess I need to wait till I get home

    Not sure what the deal was with Yosemite/iTunes 12. I went to my wife's iMac (Mavericks/iTunes 11.3.1) and it updated perfectly. Of course, then I had to go back to my computer and restore from the back up that I had just made. PITA, but at least Ive updated now.
    Couldn't you have restored via iCloud?

    Since apple's servers appear to be very busy, I'm going to download the GM tomorrow.

    It's been awhile since I've done this through Windows. Is it through Restore or Shift+Update?

    Yeah, but it would not have been current. When I started the process on my Mac running Yosemite/iTunes 12, the first thing it did was a backup to the computer. Then the install got FUBAR, and iTunes kept crashing. Had to go to another computer to finish the update. Then back to the original to get the latest backup. It was a PITA, but it’s done now, so it’s all good.

    Posting them here will get you in big time trouble. It’s against policy.

    I have iTunes 12 on Yosemite DP7 and its FUBAR. I am stuck at what looks like the DFU screen - iTunes logo and the lightning cable. When I plug it in, iTunes crashes. #nothappy
    i had that happen trying to restore a device this week

    Just a heads up if you are using Yosemite and try to go to the GM iTunes will crash while phone is plugged in, but if you have Xcode beta 6 GM open it will work fine.

    Interesting. Thanks. A little late for me, but perhaps it will save some one some consternation.

    Is there a reason pressing the brightness toggle via the control center makes the screen behind brighter without you scrolling? Is this a bug or a "feature"? It's been there in all the Betas from what I can remember, surprised to see it still exists in the GM

    Has anyone else had trouble with the just released xcode? I can download it but opening the DMG always gets a corrupted message.

    Can someone let me know if its safe and hassle free to download the iOS 8 GM? I assume it is the same as the one being released next week...

    I ask because I purchased the beta testing but decided not to use it and wait but if this is going to be the same then I suppose I might as well download it now? I just dont want to trouble updating in the future OTA if I download this beta GM.

    The Gold Master is the exact same thing that is being released to the public on the 17th. Have at it.

    Thanks, that is what I thought. When Apple releases the OTA updates will my phone be registered as a beta user though?

    I didn't get the corrupted message but had hard time getting it to open. It took almost 30 min for it to open.

    does anyone know if we are on beta now will OTA be an option when its released to the public? I am getting a little nervous because I am running Yosemite and don't want to brick the phone if possible.

    It's going to be an OTA option next week if you're on iOS 7 and not an iOS 8 beta.
