I have been having a serious issue with my 2.0 iPhone 3G, as I have detailed on my blog, Mac Soda. One of my main issues has been the Apple screen of death, as I like to call it. Basically, if you install or update an application, and the phone restarts, for whatever reason, it will freeze on the Apple logo every time, no matter what. If you don’t believe me, give it a try. I have had to restore my phone 21 times since I bought it July 11th, with each restore getting longer each time (I’ve gone from 1 hour restores to 12 hour restores, because of the number of apps I have acquired), and am desperate for a fix. So today, the 21st time, was the last straw. I emailed Steve Jobs, begging for him to fix it in the 2.1 Update next month. It turns out, Apple is already on the job and it will be fixed in the 2.1 Update. Click the read link for his response, or to view both my email and his response, click here.
We are working on a software update for September that should fix these problems. Thanks for your patience.
