    Default iPhone 8g (1st gen)
    hello all, i have a first gen. iPhone. it was originally a 1.1.1 but to make a long story short its a 1.1.4. i locked it up like twice so far. and everytime i had to use iliberty(what a saver btw). and i would lose everything.
    i am a newbie to technology. there is so much i don't understand or and still dont know how to use, like 'maps offline'. and i bearly know how to use my file browser, which so far i use to view pdf stuff i sometimes download.forgive me for such a rambling thread.

    my problem is this. i have installer and cydia since last jail breaken it. atm in my general->about-> my iphone name is 'mikey'. and i have no idea how that ever happened. i recently upgraded from laptop to a real pc and i downloaded another itunes. old version, i just figured it was better then the new itunes. so i losted all my info again.... anyhow the name's right though. i tried syncing over and over but it will not change back my name to my iphone. i tried double clicking the name in itunes but it wont work.

    please help. it bothers me so much. i dont know no 'mikey'.........

    thanks in advance and too all those iPhone experts. including that really bold guy who poked holes in his speakers. i did it too, lol. it works great. and to the guy(s) who came up with making music ringtones, awesome. thanks to all you guys and modmyiphone.

    Hmm, I would have said double click the name. I hate to be the voice of corruption, enticing you to try new things, but there is this new feature with itunes 8 called genius. It creates a playlist based on a single song, and all the other songs seem to mesh really well with the original. I havent listened to a single personal playlist since. And if you get really adventurous, genius is now a feature of the new 2.1 too! People switching from old firmwares to 2.1 have said that its much more stable than they had figured it would be. Just throwin that out there! Good luck!

    I had that "mikey" name after doing winpn to 2.0.1. I clicked the name, changed it to mine and it worked. Maybe you can click the "mikey", change it to your name, backup to itunes so that the backup has your name. It could be that your backup has the "mikey" and when you re-sync, the "mikey" name is restored to your iphone. I think you can see the name of the iphone backup in itunes. Hope this helps. g'luck!
