    well, after two attempts to backup, both took hours to complete, Then it crashing during update process. I left it to restore overnight, and when I got up this morning I finally have ios 4.2

    But, I lost everything. Well, not exactly. I lost ALL of my apps. They aren't showing up in itunes anymore. I still have all of my video's, pics, mp3s, wireless settings, even wallpapers etc, but none of my apps are on the ipad or my PC anymore. I have to redownload everything all over again.

    Not impressed.

    What is the Multitasking? Is there suppose to be a folder or something? I did my update this morning seems to work. Just a little confused about the Multitaking people are referring to. Hope this isn't a dumb question.

    My update was uneventful.. Everything went smoothly, but it did take over 1/2 an hour to complete.

    One new feature I REALLY like is that you can now search for text in web pages displayed in Safari.

    That was basically my own experience as well, although I had had a reason to remove my videos prior to the OS upgrade, so that wasn't an issue. BUT, whereas your pics remained, I lost all mine & will have to migrate them from my PC once again :(. Bookmarks also remained for me within Safari. But all my 'free' downloaded apps from iTunes are nowhere to be found on my iPad (BUT...they *are* in my iTunes LIBRARY under Apps...:confused:)

    Backing up preventing updating to 4.2

    I am still waiting for backup before the system will load the new software update. Before, I could x out the backup and go right to sync. That is not happening. Any thoughts?
