The latest interim OS update is available from Apple

Here's a quick update for all the iPhone and iPod touch owners out there: iPhone OS 3.1.3 is now available to download from within iTunes. The latest update addresses the following issues:

  • Improves accuracy of reported battery level on iPhone 3GS
  • Resolves issue where third-party apps would not launch in some instances
  • Fixes bug that may cause an app to crash when using the Japanese Kana keyboard

 For a full list of security issues corrected in this latest update, check out the release notes here. A note of warning, however, those of you with jailbroken iPhones/iPod touches should hold off until a workable solution is found for the 3.1.3 update.

Install iTunes to get this update? I think Not.

Doesn't sound worth getting at this point. Not with having to install itunes and all the crap that comes with it. Maybe I need to put an old machine together just for itunes since I don't want that crap on my main machine. Who wants 7 more useless services running? Not me. Never again will itunes be installed on this machine.

This update bricked my iPhone for over an hour. It took at least four (4) FULL restores before I had my phone / apps / music / etc. all back and working. Once that last restore took, it has worked well. However, I was seriously worried there for a bit, because it was about 45 minutes before iTunes and my phone would even really talk to each other and start a restore that would work. This is the 1st update to my iPhone since I got it in December that has caused any issues, but it was looking pretty ugly there for a while.
