Tried connecting to IDS a few times, once I got "Download complete" without anything new coming down, then a failed connect, then "Download complete" without anything new again.

So I guess they are still sorting their server out...

Give it a couple of hours and then try again, looks like all their ducks aren't quite yet in a row server-wise .

Maybe they sent the announce too soon or by mistake. They must be as excited as us with these new features. :-)

Average battery life before recharge is greatly improved.

Sooo downloaded the 2.5 preupdate... lets what happens now...

Sticking to the described procedure... steady now...
Turning the Iliad back on after preupdate...

Seems to be a big update, as it takes at least 5-10 min to download the real upgrade...

When you restart the iLiad, you will see the message: Updating software… Please do not shutdown the device while this update is being installed.
-> Done that...

Updating...............................![100%]
Complete....
Restarting now.

Seems that the Speaker is working!

Done the preinstall, now downloading the main update (although there is no indicated progress, it went from 0% to no percentage displayed at all and the light isn't flickering, I hope that's normal)...
