    If I jailbreak with RC1 do I need to re-jailbreak with RC2?

    Only if it is a LED projector, other wise I'm out. What is funny is that the Department of Justice has started to review the of telecom industry. Basically seeing if it is fair that AT&T has the iPhone and other companies don't. Should we focus efforts are something other than destroying capitalism?

    Nothing that uses the SpingBoard works. It sends your phone right into safe mode. The only reason I want to jailbreak is for iRealSMS. Other than that maybe Winterboard.... Neither one of those work. This is all pretty pointless now. I wish I would have known this and I wouldn't have wasted my time. Hope I've helped some of you out. (And yes, I know winterboard didn't work I was referring to knowing iRealSMS didn't)

    Is this worth trying?

    Ultimatley the only reason I even feel the need to JB my iPhone is to get catagories and for SSH. Thats all I really want. I know categories won't work on 3G S.. so SSH would be my only benefit.

    Is it really really laggy? After upgrading from the 3G to the 3G S I don't really want to lose the performance that was gained there.

    SBsettings is working for me, but it did make my 3GS crash also.

    iPhone 3G[S] Jailbroken Apps...
    ----------------------------------
    SBSettings YES
    Rotation Inhibitor (SB Toggle) NO
    Tricker 3G NO(Slingplayer will crash)
    Winterboard NO (duh)
    xGPS YES (more testing needed)
    Flashlight YES
    Open SSH YES
    qik YES

    my list so far...

    For those who are having lots of issues: Did you restore your old iPhone 3G profile? If so, was your old 2.2.1 jailbroken?

    Consider starting fresh. I had issues trying to use a 2.2.1 Jailbroken profile on 3.0... Caused lots of crashes and instability. I assume it was due to old info stored with the user profile.

    I had the same issue the first time I ran Purplera1n. I had my old 3G profile with Jailbreak data. When I loaded Cydia, all my old apps were there under the manage tab. I thought it was Purplera1n causing problems, so I thought I would wait. Then I did a total restore and started a new profile. All is better now. This also fixed my issues for my old 3G. Start Fresh for FW3.0

    I am sure there are many ways to backup your personal data other than through iTunes. For me, I use Outlook.

    I don't know what everyone is complaining about. This jailbreak worked perfectly with my 3g s and I haven noticed any performance hit. I recommend those with issues to do a full restore in dfu mode and a fresh jail break.

    Btw I had to restart my phone aswell to see cydia.

    Use Cydelete to delete Freeze after enabling it to delete apps that were not installed by Cydia (in Settings). Be careful tho, as you may end up having no protection for the native original iPhone apps. It is better to toggle the setting back once finished.
