you should be able to take the back off of the iphone and take a look at the metallic casing.... if you search "disassembling 2g iphone" you should be able to find a quick and easy way to pop off the back casing... I havent done it personally. but have seen a disassembly and looks fairly NOOB friendly....8Gig > 1.0 FW (dead spot on screen)
8Gig > 1.0.2 FW (broken vibrate after a while)
8Gig > 1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2(Jonny5 Still alive)
