to be honest people, I don't believe that no vibration is not due to icon mods etc. and if it was, yes a restore would fix it.
if you look at the front of your iphone, the vibration motor is located roughly half way down the left side.
I know this how? I stuffed mine up and have to replace it haha.
do not that the motor relies on everything being lined up right.
the motor has 2 screws holding it to the silver ring you see around the whole screen.
The mainboard (logicboard) then fits in and makes contact to the motor.
if somehow the mainboard is pushed back more than normal, it looses contact.
I for one stuffed my motor by trying to lift my silver frame before taking the screen and mainboard out.
which then made the connectors on the motor (vibrator) snap.

My iphone 3GS stopped vibrating a day after PurpleRa1n jailbrake.
is ibrate still around? I cant find it. I tried the vibrate sbsettings toggle, Massage and keyvib and none of them turn vibrate on, also app store games that use vibrate do not turn it on any more. Any one know if there is a plist file I can look at?
