I have a jailbroken Apple iPhone 8GB w/ 1.1.1 firmware.
Yesterday, I ran into a major (for me at least) problem with my iPhone: the built in speakers no longer play sound! And when I plug in the Apple headphones, I get muffled, watered down sound quality that mysteriously doesn't increase or decrease when I toggle the volume up/down. I can't get any audio whatsoever; not even the clicky noise or ringtones.
I did my research and realized that this was a common problem for many iPhone owners, and I tried some of the solutions, including plugging/unplugging the headset a bajillion-gazillion times (I refuse to do this anymore, as I fear it may **** the hardware up), dabbing the headset jack with an alcohol-damp q-tip, plugging different stereo headsets in.... and still nothing! The only thing I haven't done, and don't want to do is restore it - I have tons of info. in it and a custom-made springboard that literally took an entire day to make. I recently defragmented my harddrive and the folder containing my Springboard files were actually deleted!
What else do you guys recommend I do? I would really appreciate any advice... 'cuz I'm starting to freak at this point.

I have the same problem! Is there any help??!!JESUS CHRIST SAVES
12-31-2007, 01:49 AM #3Sound system problem occured each time when connected to Edge
Someone please help. I am having the same problem too. I am using a 1.1.1 unlocked version on a GSM network. I am facing two problems.
One is each time when I tried to connect to Edge, I have to type the word "wap" manually in the setting. I tried to save the setting in Settings -> Network -> Edge but it can never be saved. It used to work well before without having to key in the word "wap" manually.
Secondly, the problem that comes together with having to type in "wap" manually is the sound system. Each time when I am connected to Edge, the audio system would have problem. The sound volume would become very low that you could hear only a very tiny ringing tone or perhaps could even hardly hear them. I have to switch off and on the phone again each time after connnected/disconnect to Edge to get the sound volume back.
Anyone knows what's going wrong with the phone? Anyone has an idea how to fix the sound system problem? This only happens when I am connected to Edge. Please help.

I have the same speaker problem!
The first time my speaker sound disappeared was when i was talking on the phone with the earbuds (headset) plugged in. When I ended the call with the squeeze remote, the first song in my music library on the iPhone started playing. I disconnected the earbuds (without turning off the music) and all the speaker sound disappeared! I still get sound in my headset/earbuds.
I did a restore back to a clean 1.1.1., did the jailbreak used anySIM... and "voila!" the speaker sound returned.
A couple of minutes later I was browsing the content on the phone (AFPd from Installer) while listening to music on the speaker. I closed the server connection... and the speaker died AGAIN!!!
Frustrated I started to fiddle with all the buttons. When I dubbel-tapped the power/mute button on top of the phone, the speaker activated again!? Nervous as hell I pressed the power button again to make sure the speaker sound should stay on this time... but no, it disappeared. This time for good!
This time I have tried:
* to clean the female end of the plug from dust with a cotton swab
* oneSim (before using anySIM)
* update to 1.1.2
...still NO speaker sound! I'm freaking out... big time!
