It's supposed to improve performance on iPhone 4. Has anyone noticed a big improvement? That might get me to update even though it means not being able to jailbreak.

What's with the bold letters on the keyboard? The update notes say the bold text accessibility option now includes the keyboard, but I don't have it turned on and it's definitely thicker than it used to be.

Just remembered that it's already too late for my iPhone. Forgot that they stopped signing old versions so I can't do a restore (which apparently I have to do to jailbreak since I did an OTA update to 7.0.6). So might as well update to 7.1 and hope they jailbreak that fairly quickly. Or maybe I should just say F it and try jail breaking the OTA updated iPhone 4 anyway, then restore if that fails. I suppose I'll do that first. No harm in it, I don't think. Worst case I have to restore which I was going to do anyway when I thought about jail breaking.

Well I decided to update (OTA) and ended up in an endless boot loop. Now I'm trying a restore.

Well that was a painful update, but I finally got it working. I had to restore a 2nd time because the first time I did the setup via iTunes and that doesn't give the option to restore from iCloud (why not?) and then I found that the Erase Content & Settings seemed to be broken - I could not get it to work. So I had to restore a 2nd time and then not do anything past that via iTunes. Disconnected it when it wanted to set it up, then set it up on the phone itself.

So anyway, I do think there is a significant improvement in performance on the iPhone 4. That makes the trouble, and lack of jailbreak (for now) worth it. My iPhone 4 is going to be much more livable, I think.
