    Very buggy. Well, actually, I had only one problem. I could not access the internet out of my home. At all.

    It was two sad sad days! Had to downgrade back ~

    NOT RECOMMENDED.


    It is very buggy still. Wait and see if they fix the bugs in November and then upgrade.

    Gee I must have a real lemon! I installed iOS 4.2 and have had virtually ZERO problems at all. But then again, my iPad is WiFi only. I have probably received updates to over 20 apps so far and I am sure there are more to come.

    Maybe I should send my iPad back to Apple and ask for one that has problems!

    I Got trouble with Wifi only …. is possible than depend on the source of the firmware … my source is safe (come from a friend developer) , or depend also on what you did in your iPad: aka just surfing or working with

    but as many say, too buggy stay away from this release


    PS: i am happy for that your one work fine

    I've been using 4.2 for about a week and while there are some issues, none a serious enough for me to downgrade back.
