    Has anyone else noticed that the new revision is almost 600mb?

    I really don't see why the size keeps going up and up.. They are just fixing something not adding something.. It's retarded!

    So. That's how much code is used in the firmware. No biggie.

    Each ipsw is unique to the device it is made for, and the amount of content inside.

    Eg. The iPhone 2G 1.0.1 firmware was around 90MB. It didn't have the App Store or any of that good stuff. When newer things are added, like language packs, they take up space. So yeah, 580MB isn't surprising, especially for a phone with a lot of new stuff.
