Apple has released the iPhone 2.1 firmware which contains many bug fixes and improvements.

Update includes:
* Decrease in call set-up failures and dropped calls
* Significantly better battery life for most users
* Dramatically reduced time to backup to iTunes
* Improved email reliability, notably fetching email from POP and Exchange accounts
* Faster installation of 3rd party applications
* Fixed bugs causing hangs and crashes for users with lots of third party applications
* Improved performance in text messaging
* Faster loading and searching of contacts
* Improved accuracy of the 3G signal strength display
* Repeat alert up to two additional times for incoming text messages
* Option to wipe data after ten failed passcode attempts
* Genius playlist creation

Again, we recommend not updating your iPhone to the 2.1 firmware until the iPhone Dev-Team releases an update to PwnageTool. This may be important for those hoping for an unlock in the future.

Rest worked. But the lower volume on video remained.

glad I could help Kyle. Has anyone noticed a lag while filling out web forms on the device? It feels like the spell check is slowing input. Same lag when deleting text. This is making it hard to type fast. I also noticed volume is lower in video playback. I will reset the device to see if this changes. Oh, one more odd thing. Old text messages that I had deleted are back. Anyone else have this happen?

Lyrrad: Just updated my iPhone 2.0.2 to 2.1 through iTunes. Like you said, no issues with the unlock, and I didn't even use WinPwn 2.0.0.4. There's no Cydia or Installer but what the hell, I never used them much, so it makes no difference to me. App Store can remain on my desktop for as long as it wants, as I don't use that as well. Now waiting to see what's difference 2.1 makes over 2.0.2. Thanks for your tip earlier.
