    very much so.

    I won't say it's the worst thing ever...but it's certainly not an upgrade for anyone with a 3G phone. it feels like someone swapping out a discrete GPU for an integrated. apps open just fine, but it's slow and eye candy is fail.

    edit: has anyone who has jailbroken found a way to make iBooks show up?

    yea...think I'm going to downgrade to 3.1.2 and be done with it until I'm ready to sell my 3G iPhone.

    bottom line here is that it just doesn't run well.

    • Animations are slow
    • Applications open and close slowly.
    • Critical apps (well, critical for me) are currently incompatible (MyWi, to be specific)
    • Multitasking only works for 1 app that i care about (Pandora)
    • Folders are slow to open and close, though they're extremely handy.
    • Available memory is chronically low (never really more than 20-25MB free)
    • Startup takes around 130 seconds.
    • iBooks doesn't yet work with the jailbreak, and there's no guarantee that it will.


    I'd like to enjoy it...but the sum total of all of these things tends to make me think Apple was right in leaving some of these features out for the 3G. Just doesn't have the horsepower to do a fully-featured iOS4 well enough.

    sorry to be the bearer of bad news to those still trying to get this to work...but I'm as disappointed as anyone.

    Lol offtopic but I think I'm wasting more time in trying to get these freaking two boot screens to work on Pwnage Tool than i've ever taken in jailbreaking an iPhone.

    Its driving me NUTS!!! I've wasted about an hour here trying to make them work, they are below 100kb (50kb to be exact, have transparency) yet Pwnage Tool says they are not compatible. Grrr!

    Edit: Woo, finally got it! Had to downsize my image A WHOLE lot, it doesn't even look like what it's supposed to be, but it still looks awesome. The more colors you have, the harder it is for it to pass. It doesn't matter if its below 100k apparently.

    i'm not experiencing any lag issues on my 3g, am i just lucky? are the lag issues on a phone by phone basis or is it widespread?

  12. #372
    Hey guys, wondering if anyone can help me out...

    I did a clean restore (i always do) and installed 4.0 on my 3g. All went well. I then used redsn0w pointed at the downloaded ipsw and this seemed to be fine.

    Cydia reorganized and closed itself and then resprang. Now it opens and gets as far as the page asking if you are user, hacker etc. and resprings. Every time. I've redsn0wed again thinking it didn't install properly but that didn't help.

    Any ideas?

    EDIT you just have to make a selection really really fast before the respring...all good now. Apology for panic-post but maybe someone will need to know

    I've seen plenty of people saying the same thing. I thought is was because I added the multitasking and desktop background enabled, so i re-jailbroke and took them off but it still ran slow. It's not horribly slow but I've had my phone long enough to notice the difference. 3G just doesn't handle IOS4 good.

    Got iOS4 on my 3G, jailbroke with redsn0w, and unlocked with ultrasn0w.

    SBSettings works, but don't try to open up processes as it'll crash your springboard.
    Multitasking works fine with the apps compatible with it.
    Do NOT even try the wallpaper function. It will slow down your phone a lot. I had to re-restore just to get rid of it.
    All the apps I've tried work (not going to list 50 apps here).

    Overall, I like it so far. The speed is not bad at all (can't really tell the difference) and no problems with the battery yet. The unlock works flawlessly so far.

    ^^^ No, wallpaper may slow it down more, but it's still slow with a black background...the 3G just doesn't perform well with IOS4 in general. If you've jailbroked iPhones for a while u can tell a big difference.I even deleted all my apps from cydia off and it still sucked.
