iOS 4 on iPod Touch 2G

14Sep10

I heard quite a few friends whining that iOS 4 wasn’t a good ‘upgrade’ on their iPhone 3G(S)s, with many reverting back to versions of 3.x that were considered faster or more stable. I was therefore somewhat sceptical about upgrading my iPod Touch 2G, and would have left it be if it wasn’t for so many apps demanding 4.x.[1]

After digging around the web, and asking around on Twitter I couldn’t find anybody that would say whether this would go well or badly. Eventually I caved in and went for it with 4.02. The process began with an obligatory upgrade to iTunes 10. For some lucky reason I didn’t need to turn off Ping, it was off by default – yay. The backup/upgrade/restore cycle took ages (most of a day).

No harm done – that would be my first impression.

Oh – and there’s an ‘airplane mode’ slider now in settings.

4.02 to 4.1 didn’t take so long – around half an hour. I’ll report back here if I find anything worthy of comment.

Bottom line – iOS 4 on the iPod Touch – probably necessary for new apps (and upgrades to old apps) that insist on 4.x, but otherwise Meh!
