    Same here. Can someone post the link that was given in the article and/or the text of the article, for those of us that can't get to it?

    [I'm posting this again...just curious, has any one downloaded and installed the Golden Master? I work with a developer who gave me a link to get it. I downloaded it and installed it (Windows users hold down the shift key before clicking 'Check for Update' button and point to the the 'iPhone1,2_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw' file). It installed fine (less than 20 minutes) and seems very stable. I just want to find out if the public release is the same build number (7A341)?

    Link to the download:

    I'm getting it from that link. I didn't say up for no reason. I'll install the apple version later.

    Well, do the math. If its showing on the Singapore website that it won't be available until the 18th; means the rest of us have like another 8hours to wait, at least.

    That assumes that there will be a simultaneous global release. That's not a guarantee as far as I know.

    That link is just for the last build of 3.0 which was released right after WWDC last week. It will be buggy and if you don't know what you're doing downloading torrents and uploading OS onto your iPhone I would not mess around with it. You didn't wait all this time just to brick your phone.

    Fair enough, I severely doubt we are going to see it up and running until at least 7am PST.

    Might as well just play it cool. Hopefully it releases soon. Sadly, it's getting too late.

    Secondly, ever other MAJOR firmware update has been released between 8-10 a.m. in respect to each time zone. For once there is a perk to live on the East Coast... just kidding EST peeps I got love for your. This is largely due to
    A.) Publicity in news outlets which will drive morning stock prices for Apple if people watching the news get to see the release happen.

    B.) Tech support lines usually have more staffing at normal business hours to help the hundreds of complaining customers who did something wrong or just didn't read about the updates.

    C.) Apple stores are open at 10 almost nation wide.

    What I know is that it is not a beta and it is the 'Golden Master' build which is what is to be released by Apple (unless there was an updated build to the installer after WWDC.) But I too will verify the version build once Apple gets it out...

    Just wait man, the world isn't going to end if you don't get it right now.
