    Great, TLB...let us know how it went when you are done! What issues you have had, etc.

    I think this thread may be a popular one as we move forward. I have earmarked this thread as one to refer to if needed.

    Good luck!

    Great, thank you for the update nikonstorm. So it wasn't as daunting as the big update from last October, eh?

    Updated using wifi over the air update here in the UK on 10 meg service.. It took around 10 minutes to download and a further 10 to prepare itself then around another 20 to do the update. So, around 40 minutes in all.

    WOW! 40 minutes from start to end to update? Coming from Android that's a LIFETIME! LOL Usually Android's take 15 minutes MAX (depending on download speeds) to finish an OTA update. I'm glad I read this before doing my first update! I would have thought I bricked the iPad! LOL Thanks

    Hmmm...took more than that for me when I had updates on my android tab. You never knew when it was done or if it timed out! This is a piece of cake I my eyes!

    I guess we all have different experiences. I have never had an Android take more than 15min...I've flashed so many roms too and that was also a piece of cake. The only real "issue" I ever had on Android was with the Bionic since it has a locked bootloader...makes everything a little more hairy!

    I lost my patience with it after 5 weeks, and bought the iPad. Best choice I made!

    Updated a couple hours ago. About 10-15 minutes start to finish. Not bad.

    Must be everyone and their great great grandmother jumping on to D/L the newest iOS updates - not to mention there is another iTunes update (75MB) as well that has to be completed too....

    I'm on Comcast, wireless, and to do the iOS update via the iPad2 wirelessly, it's saying the estimated time is 3 HOURS.... LMFAO... Usually, my updates fly, as well as anything else going through my wireless... but damn, tonight, it's going as slow as molasses via Apple's site for D/L's....

    So, I'm updating my iTunes (which is also going abnormally slow) and will do my iPad2 64 update, iPhone 4 and 4s through iTunes in a bit...

    Not sure how some of you are able to update in 30-40 mins...
