Regardless of my android phone, I am so freakin impressed with Apple it sickens me sometimes. I just updated the airport utility from downstairs, via back to my mac remotely. It disconnected during update, then reconnected by itself. Never had to leave my chair. I'd like to see that on Windows. (sarcasm)
Apple freakin rocks.

I just updated mine from my iPhone while sitting on the can. Just thought everyone might want to know it updates just fine from the commode.

I know it doesn't say so in the release notes, but I hope this update reinstates the old MobileMe connectivity via iCloud.

****

Just installed the update, MobileMe functionality remains the same and has not been updated for iCloud.

I really hope this fixes the Airplay disconnection issues I have been experiencing.



Does it fix the tc Problem loosing Connection to the hdd?


That sounds like a hardware issue, not something software updates can fix.

Awesome thanks for the idea. I have that app on my iPhone, but didn't know you can update firmware from it. Cool!
