Whenever you have multitasking you have apps running in the background. But they aren't really running they are more or less on standby. In the Unix world they refer to this as sleeping.

So if you multitask with 4.2.1 you will have an app running in the background, but after a while if you don't return to it the OS will completely shut it down. This is nothing for people do be concerned about. I just noticed that some are so that's why I was talking about it.
Thanks for the explanation! Seems like a minor thing to be trippin about.
I found some minor slowdowns in my iPad since 4.2. I just open up the multitasking bar and close the apps I no longer need open. After that, she's back to her old self.
Since this thread is turning into an apple bashing thread I will go back to the original question...

Once you have downloaded this file go into iTunes and hook up your iPad. On he front tab where it says check for update. Hold shift and click check for update. A file selection box will cone up.. Just choose the file you downloaded and this will revert you back to 3.2. Make sure you do a sync before you do anything to update OS.
PM me if you need more information.
