    Hey guys.

    I've had 3.0 installed since Wednesday, and for the most part it works fine, there's a few quirks I've seen and am thinking of going a "restore as new" to see if it makes a difference.

    Does anyone know if I should wait until the Apple officially releases 3.0 or would it be safe to do it now even though iTunes thinks the latest OS release is still 2.2.1.

    once you go 3.0 there is no going back, you will have to wait for apple.

    Yes I know that, and I don't intend to go back to 2.2.1. I was just curious if I did the restore as new now that I have 3.0 will it try to restore 2.2.1 or 3.0?

    I know the release is only a few days away, but I'm not working and the warden is on a business trip so I need something to fill the time...

    i believe it will default to 2.* unless you override it and direct it to the 3.0 firmware. hold shift and then click restore..

    yea, as above to the shift+restore just dont reload your backup and you'll have a fresh 3.0 device.

    i wouldnt like to think what restoring back to 2.2.1 might do to the iphone, guessing it updates a huge amount in the background
