      A few occasion the home buttom key was not able to function when iphone is in phone mode. This issue was rectified after iphone was restarted.

      My battery life is about 50% of what it was with ver 2.1. I'm pretty upset with the situation. Really wish there was a way to downgrade.

      Once.. maybe a typo... but twice?

      Dude... until the issue is not resolved = until the issue is resolved.

      The "SMS Preview" option has now reverted back to the 2.0 mode, where despite turning off the preview it still displays the phone number / contact of the sender even with the phone locked. This was fixed in 2.1 but now we have taken a step back again ... well done.

      @Dave,

      There is a way to downgrade, just download an older firmware and restore it to that firmware.

      I haven't had any problems with 2.2 tho, i would also just like to say how much i love the new feature of pressing the home button while on any page to take you back to your first page of apps. its makes things much easier when you have many pages of apps.

      all of my apps say there on the phone but i used the categories app from the jail broken app store and now whne i updated they say there there but i cannot get to them because all of the jail broken apps are gone like winter board and such i cant re download them from the app store because it says installed plz help

      @ parker

      I have categories installed currently, and the new version had a disclaimer stating to "be very careful", and to "remove all apps from folders and uninstall before updating."

      I have had some problems with categories also like adding apps to folders and then it crashes and doesn't show up in the folder.

      I'm not sure on how to get your apps back but you could try managing removing them directly off iTunes and then syncing your phone and then it may remove them.

      Hope this helps

      I have issues with the SSH Connection, I've done everything and nothing works.. I/O connection failure..

      In other hands at some point the Wifi stopped working, at the general tab looks connected to a network, but the edge logo did not change to wifi bars... and obviuosly did not work.... I did a restore to solve this.

      With 2.2 my battery life has decreased from 1 day 12 hours between charges to about 9 hours between charges. My phone usage patterns have not changed. The phone is usually on standby (I don't play music through it, surf the web, etc. I do check email once in a while.)

      After upgrading to 2.2 via Pwnage Location Services and GPS does not work. Everything else seems to be fine. I keep getting an error message saying "Your Location Could Not Be Determined". No such problem when I ha s2.1 installed. Has anyone else experienced this?

    • davedave Posts: 389

      I've got a good one:

      All of my AppStore Apps crash immediately, yet none of my Installer/Cydia apps do.

      They were working fine earlier today, and now they don't. The only thing I did on the phone was add some music. I removed all music from the iphone and rebooted, and all the appstore apps still crash.

      Not too sure if anyone else is having this problem.

      I'm going to try and restore to see if that will fix it.

      If you have jailbroken your 2.2 iPhone 3g and are having trouble downloading anything from the appstore then all you have to do is enter cydia and download the source for steffwiz and there should be a patch for the 2.2 mobile installer. Download and reboot and wala problem solved!!!!

      I have noticed battery life has halved since moving to 2.2 from 2.1 and I havent changed anything else! Apple reps must read these forums! Listen to the users! How hard can it be to make a phone that works properly with all their knowledge!

      oh and my texts have started stopping sending even with full bars! f**** sake!

      My iphone won't let me place calls! I touch the Green phone app, the keypad appears for 4-5 seconds, then back to my springboard! Is this because of the 2.2 update and/or Cydia and Installer?? Should I restore and unjailbreak?? Opinions will really help...

    • OscarOscar Posts: 12

      I found the solution to my own problem! It seems as though mobile enhancer was the app that prevented me from using the phone app. Mobile Enhancer is found from Installer, and if you had the same problem, try uninstalling mobile enhancer from Installer, then restart your iphone...

      hi, i can´t update any app from app store, even doing the update in iTunes and syncing with the iPhone, it gives error.

      And another important thing, the option to repeat the album or song, doesn´t work for me. Do the same happens with you?????? i really like and use that option to continually repeat the same album or music.

    • PennyPenny Posts: 6

      i think your problem is that you have the icom to repeat music active.
      Is the circular arrow on the left side of the menu of ipod control. click, and disable option to repeat

      I have the same symptoms as zoides (kind of). I have upgraded to 2.2 and jailbroke it and all is 99% well. The only thing is that I cannot install apps from the App Store directly onto the iphone. In my case, I have to sync with iTunes to get the App Store apps to install. Cydia and Installer work fine. Any thoughts
