    Hi

    I am an UK user and have had my ipad (bought in New York) a month ago.

    Am loving it but the new software update 4.2 has been an absolute nightmare.

    I have now tried 6 times (and it takes about 80 minutes each time) to download and install this on my ipad and each time it has failed.

    I appear to be able to download the update each time and then it says "processing" and I then get a message saying:

    "There was a problem downloading the software for the ipad "ipad". The network connection timed out. Make sure your network settings are correct and your network connection is active or try again later."

    This implies there is a problem with my internet but I ran diagnosis in iTunes and it said it was fine.

    So what is the problem? Very frustrating....

    I had this happen, too. The problem could be that the servers cannot handle all the traffic. Itunes checks for updates periodically (not every day), so there'll likely people out there that still have to download ios4.2.1, too.

    As I understood, the last GM-seed has the same build-number as the final release of ios4.2.1.
    So I just took a download I could find via google and installed it by holding down the shift-key while pressing on the update-button in itunes.
    After updating the iPad, itunes says that I'd have the latest version.
    You can find the exact build number somewhere in this forum, too.
    To install the os, you still need to be connected to the internet as apple verifies your eligibility for the update, but this is not as lengthy as downloading the os from apple.
    But, as a lot of people will probably point out later, use this workaround at your own risk.

    One other query - do I need the new 4.2 update for my Apple TV (don't have this yet - will be getting at Christmas) to work properly? Or will I be OK on the 3.2.2 version - having tried 7 times (12 hours of downloading time) to install 4.2 I have given up; I might take it along to an Apple Store and get them to do it.

    I believe you need 4.2 for AirPlay. The remote should work fine.

    New OS

    Downloaded new OS today without a hitch. Seems to work fine.
    What exactly is air print?
    On the road now, but would like to be able to use printer at home on net work.

    Is the air print blue tooth or just wifi net work, or is there some other equipment needed?

    If you wan't a stable jailbreak i recomend you guys stay on v3.2.2 as limera1 which jailbreaks this particular firmware which is untethered and means it is bootable when shut down. But redsnow for v4.2.1 firmware will jailbreak v4.2.1 but is tethered which means you must reboot it with redsnow each time your ipad restarts.

    Yeah, the reboot portion of redsn0w for 4.2.1 sucks, but still, it works
