    but maybe knows of a program thats lets you browse and edit/replace files in a non-jailbroken iphone? maybe ixfer?
    Just wait... If your phone works than no harm in waiting... I did a test and then went back to 2.0.2 (2g iphone)

    I also tried to ssh but no luck...

    It has always done it. That's what you see if your songs has actual lyrics in the lyrics tab. All you have to do is press the screen while a song is playing, if you have anything on the lyrics collumn, it will pop up. Its NOT a new feature.

    ALL,
    after looking at the tests (self) and reading about the 3g and playing around with it. 2G users should be golden with any of the Firmware versions... I do suggest waiting to upgrade to 2.1 until the winpwn/equivelent is out. (I did upgrade but went back as stated in my test post) Reason you ask? Cydia/Installer... No other reason... No sence in upgrading and then to do it all over again in a few days...

    The 3G has new chips... one in particular that is causing all the heartache... 3G! (Outdated BTW) This FW is almost 100% for the 3G.

    For us 2G until APPLE goes to A2DP support for bluetooth or there is a hack :-) no real reason to upgrade "immediatly" If bluetooth was unleashed then...... link to bluetooth GPS receiver/headphones/anybluetooth device....

    Im Just saying....

    Oh yeah 2G rocks... and so does 3g since I sold it...

    DOES ANY DEV HAVE THE 411 on A2DP? Ill help...

    I have a 16gb 3G iphone jail break and my 3g recepection was terrible and now after updating my recepition is at full bar the whole time before it would go to edge and 3g and i had a lot of drop calls and now is working fine. I lost Cydia and Installer and some cracked apps but oh well i would just wait for the Dev Team to come with a new solution to jailbreak my phone again.

    Updated my 2nd gen (2.0.2) and it works perfectly on T-Mo, no issues other than the loss of Cydia and Winter. MUCH faster access to sms and contacts, well worth the time and effort to update IMO.

    Also did the upgrade to 2.1. Had jailbroken, unlocked, activated pwned v2.02 1gen, ended up with unlocked, activated v2.1 1gen. Fast backups, fast installs, no app crashes (so far), no install issues - loving it.

    easy one for me i'm waiting on a jailbreak version. I love winterboard way too much to lose all my wallpapers updating.

    That is unless 2.1 really does have background push notifications like for AIM?

    You can find the update in itunes and we'll have it here shortly: (Thanks to Raxxal for the links)

    Here you can get the new updates:

    For 3G Iphone

    For 2G Iphone


    MMI Note: If you have a jailbroken phone or if your phone is unlocked.....DO NOT UPDATE....until we get word from the Devs
    *First generation users - if you upgrade in iTunes you will lose your jailbreak, but retain your unlock/activation due to the baseband not changing. If you restore, you will lose your jailbreak AND activation but remain unlocked.

    Note to 3G Users - If you upgrade in iTunes to 2.1 and have intelliscreen installed (or other programs that modify your com.apple.springboard.plist you WILL get the Spinning Wheel of Death after you upgrade and have to restore.

    Just updated a 2G 16gb that was jailbroken winpwn 2.5 and unlocked to the new 2.1 firmware. Phone is still unlocked and activated, but cydia and installer are gone (not a big deal - knew they would be.) One suprise is that my numeric battery indicator is still there and functioning fine after the update.

    Im new to my iphone anyways, just got it a couple weeks ago and never did really use much of the jailbreak features or apps from cydia/installer so this is not a big deal to me... I do wonder why/how the numeric battery is still there though...

    certain system images/settings will stay when you update rather than restore, or if you restore from a backup rather than setting up a new phone, and that's why. happened to me last time when i restored my phone (not update) but restored from a backup rather than set up the phone as new

    Thought I would throw my 2 cents in now that I did all 3 of my iPhones.

    I have a 2G that was winpwn'ed (Jailbreak and unlock for T-Mobile USA) on 2.0.2, upgraded it to 2.1, still unlocked, NO Jailbreak.

    My ATT 3G, quickpwn'ed on 2.0.2, upgraded, went fine but no Jailbreak any more.

    My iPhone 3G on T-mobile USA (from Italy, no SIM lock) was quickpwn'ed on 2.0.2 and I upgraded. No more pwnage/Jailbreak, but everything works.

    No more 3rd party apps on any of them, but oddly I still have the number for battery status from BossPrefs.

    -D

    like jtesnani said, "certain system images/settings will stay when you update rather than restore, or if you restore from a backup rather than setting up a new phone, and that's why."
