iPhone 3G running 4.0

If anyone here is hesitating putting 4.0 on there 3G, dont! It runs super fast and everything is running like butter.

Apps open 10x faster than they did on 3.1.3. The new dock mirrors all icons you place there which is pretty cool. No problems with WiFi, email or voicemail!

All 3.0 apps running smooth on 4.0 as well. No crashes to report!

That sounds really promising, but I'm still hesitant to put a beta OS on anything a device that I'm using for things other than development.

Are you running it on your main device?

Yes, installed on my main phone! I did the same with beta 1 of 3.0-gold

3.0 had tons of bugs but this 4.0 is simply amazing!

The texting is the only thing buggy that I've noticed. Screen scrolls up and down crazily when you send/receive a message.

And some other things.

I don't think multi-tasking works on a 3G tho... or Does It?

Havn't encountered that yet. Sent a ton of messages testing email and text with no problems.

having only played words with friends, sending text's and using email my free memory was at 3MB! lol

the app Memory Info doesn't seem to be killing processes in 4.0 No memory has been free'd.

Good thing it only takes 35 seconds to reboot the 3G now. Much faster than before.

Best of luck with that. Hope it doesn't flake out on you!
