    I went ahead and *cough* obtained it *cough* and the proximity sensor is 100% fixed. I tried it in every angle possible and it failed to display the issues that troubled it. I am sure for some it will still mess up due to faulty hardware. Thank god for the ability to disable spell check as well. Us superior spelling species don't need that garbage. Still testing white balancing and the odd issue where sometimes it puts a blue tint to some pics randomly. I will come back and give further updates. Feel free to chime in if you see anything as well.

    I'm restoring my backup file right now on 4.1. We shall see. Glad the proximity issue is fixed. That was a real annoyance.

    I'm curious about the HDR capability. How is the image quality? Does it create the image from one snap of the shutter, or three in succession?

    You know, I'm not a camera guy. I will occasionally take pics. Nothing fancy. Perhaps a more camera oriented person can answer.

    Jobs said that it actually took 3 pictures in rapid succession... keeps the one you "took", and uses that image, one underexposed and one overexposed to create the HDR image and then discards the over/under exposed... the two images that will be saved are the original and the HDR image.

    Sounds like that Clearcam app TIPB reviewed. http://www.tipb.com/2010/08/19/clear...ne-app-review/

    Think that dev is upset?

    isnt that risky? what if there are subtle changes before it is released? when its released will iTunes detect a new version even though you are already on 4.1?

    installing 4.1 now. Will report my experience.

    I'm on 4.1 and everything is awesome but Game Center has me logged in (already had a username) and I don't see any games or anything as advertised.

    when held to your head it would randomly turn the screen back on thus your face was mashing buttons like mute or even end call. it was a pain in the rear. seems to be ok now but thats on limited testing so far here.

    Nah. The GM Seed is akin to a release candidate. Something that's ready for consumers. Yes, iTunes will detect the release version of 4.1...so far, so good. I'll give HDR photos a run during the day tomorrow though.

    That's what I was afraid of. So, this will be like any other HDR app- unusable with any living subject. It's cool to have it natively available for landscape shots, but I was hoping that it would create the HDR image from one image capture so that it could be used in action shots/portraits.

    Hi,
    I just 'obtained' and flashed the GM release to my iPhone4 (mostly for the new AVRCP remote controls on bt stereo headsets), and have found that A2DP is seriously broken on this build. I hope this is fixed before the release.

    I have a sony A2DP headset, that worked perfectly under 4.0x (except for track skip buttons), but since upgrading to 4.1GM it has suddenly redirected the audio to the speaker (in the office - how embarasing) while listening to it through bt - that is my worst fear with bt stereo, and makes me not want to use it.

    After re-pairing, it worked for a bit, but keeps getting into a state where it thinks its playing through the headset, but no sound comes out. As i said, it worked perfectly before the update. re-pairing fixes it, but syncing to iTunes seems to kill it again.

    Has anyone else seen these issues? can I flash back to 4.0x, or does apple only allow 'upgrades' to versions os iOs??

    I updated to 4.1 and my phone and my wife's phone are still having intermittent trouble connecting to BT in our cars.

    Yes you can flash back, but not through any official channel. There are other threads in a different section on this site with your answer.

    The whole concept of HDR requires multiple images... the process needs to compare various areas of the multiple images to create the best over-all image. It's tough to compare anything with a single photo.

    Thank you i am going to just revert to wired headphones ... was in two minds if wireless was actually more convinient anyway (since it needs charging, and the headset itself is a bit crap in that the volume control is very flakey).. in which case I will stay with the GM until the official release next week (is that likely to be exactly the same code assuming apple find no problems??? i got a mate to register my iPhone with apple, so i dont know if it would have applied without that or not...)

    The code is frozen. They will not be making any changes. What you have is what will be out next week.

    oh dear... looks like there is a regression with a2dp then (at least for my setup), unless its because i restored a 4.0x backup over a 4.1 install...
    nevermind, as i said, i was unsure if a2dp was actually an advantage anyway... the lack of wires is good (especially for cycling), but the remote is a PITA compared to the one on the apple wired headset that can always be found just below my right ear and it needs charging, and the audio gets re-compressed so in theory is lower quality.
    I was suprised at how good the battary life of the iphone4 is with a2dp though - i was expecting to take a hit, but it seems stella (in general, and when using stereo bt)...

    If its the final build, im defo gonna leave it on there... now just waiting for the betas of 4.2 for my iPad so it can finally multitask...

    Bluetooth is great. Especially when your car is bluetooth enabled and state law requires handsfree. No ear piece, just bring your phone in the car and you can speak freely. Signal, battery and caller ID displayed on my dash. Silly?

    That law doesn't exist where I am. Non-issue.
