I don't get too carried away with updated versions. For the most part, the sole intention is to break JBs and it seems a great % of users can't help themselves and grab the updates....although there's not usually too long a wait before a "fix" comes along

I'll definitely wind up updating my iPad; it's rather behind (compared to the other iDevices) in the feature set.

My iPod, on the other hand... I think I can resist an update for it.

Nevertheless, I immensely hate that Apple decided to change the rotation switch's behavior to that of the mute switch. Nobody likes it (sounds like even renowned Apple fanboy John Gruber is displeased), but Apple insists on the change. Oh well, it's yet another reason to jailbreak (when a tweak to undo the change comes out, that is)!

I'm going to update too, but first, I'm going to wait for something to untether the jailbreak. Wonder if Activator can fix the rotation lock thing...

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
