    Apple released iPhone firmware 2.2 late last week which includes many improvements such as Google Street View, Podcast over-the-air download and bug fixes for or the Safari crashes, the iPhone Safari exploit and more. We had published an article about some of the problems that iPhone users had reported after...

      have you tried to turn the Calculator by 90° to get the bigger display - its completely distorted after 2.2 on my old iPhone

      Since 2.2 I can't reinstall commandfusion's iViewer app.

      This is a home automation app and it's no use without a Crestron processor. But if you guys can try and install it I'll know if it's a 2.2 glitch.

      For some reason since the update my Edge connection is sporadic. It can be working just fine one minute and the next not connect at all. I have found that the only way to regain my connectivity is by turning off the phone itself or by using SBsettings to reboot my phone.

      Just a little tip. I had a problem with apps not showing after an update (jailbroken) on my 3g. I went into settings and enabled restrictions, then disabled restrictions and that made all my "invisiable" apps to re-appear.

      Since the 2.2 upgrade, my relaxation apps, Binaural Beat, aSleep and Ambiance stop working if I turn off the display. I definitely don't want the display on for the half hour or so the app is open.

      Update on my previous post. The problem with Ambiance has been solved, and aSleep confirms that their update is ready, pending Apple's approval. That leaves only BinauralBeat.

      I have a iPhone 3G 8GB and have not yet jailbroken it, but did the 2.2 update..

      Now I just tried restoring it with the iPhone1,2_2.1_5F136_Restore.ipsw and it did infact downgrade the firmware (acording to iTunes). However it gave a 1013 error. But it would seem my iPhone is now using the old firmware and is sitting is recovery mode... so that should mean I can jailbreak it or whatever I want right?

      When I upgraded to 2.2 I have major problems with Network coverage in places that I was fine on 2.1 "No Service" message. If I reboot then it comes back. Also I have noticed that the phone interfears with other devices now, like my desk phone at work. Never an issue before and in my Car or docked in a BOSE speaker system. I have down graded to 2.1 for the FW but still has problems. So this leads me to think there is a problem with the new Modem FW? SO my phone have gone back to Apple for repair. I bet they find nothing and it will come back just the same.

      Im not sure this is 2.2 problem or not, but 2.1 do not have this problem before, i just upgraded on monday night. Everything seems fine, except the caller ID problem are not fixed.

      But tonight (Wednesday), when i opened my FaceBook app, it just hang there, so i press Power + home button to force reset. Suddenly my iphone turn in DFU mode, and ask me to plug into iTune to restore the firmware...

      I wonder am i the only one who have this problem? Anyone there?

      Hello, I have a problem that is unique, I don't think anyone else has it, and I don't know what to do about it. I have an iphone 3g 16gb running a jailbroken 2.2 firmware that was jailbroken using quickpwn. Everything was going smoothly with this new update and jailbreak until I tried to use that new "Update All" button from the appstore on the iphone. It brought me back to the springboard, and the application said "Loading" like usual. When it finished loading it said "installing". But the blue bar started this time. It just stayed there frozen. I can still install a NEW application from my iphone, but I can't update any of my old ones unless I'm on the computer which is NOT okay with me. What did I do wrong? What should I do to fix it?

      Respond back at [email protected]

      Thank you

      YouTube does not work after 2.2. upgrade.
      I upgraded a 16GB 2G and a 8GB 2G iPhone. The upgrade went smooth with Pwnage Tool but after the upgrade YouTube does not work. "YoutTube is not available" (translated). Also MXtube from Cydia does not work.

      Im not going near this FW 2.2, how it is physicaly possible for Apple to get this so wrong! think we deserve some answers and a new FW Update

      I have factory unlocked iPhone 3G. Update 2.2 was very usefull:
      -significant batter improvement
      -significant increase in terms of OS speed
      -No crash noted in Safari even after jailbreak it with Quick PWN 2.2
      It works flawlessly!!! A must upgrade.

      Try not to upgrade to 2.2 but restore your iphone 3g with 2.2.
      Know it painfull to reinstall all software again, but it worth doing it.

      Suddenly YouTube started working! I went to one of my YouTube bookmarks and loaded it. After that I was able to connect to YouTube. Overall successfull upgrade! I also recommend doing a restore. That cleans up things. My iPhone seems much snappier now. I had a lot of apps and things were crawling. I think a restore gives a fresh start. All my apps and info are back like before the upgrade.

      I finally broke down and restored to 2.2 with Pwnage Tool. Everything worked fine except Cydia wouldn't load, it just kept crashing. And without Cydia, I couldn't restore the backup because I need to add a couple of programs before I do that. So I went back to 2.1.

      Somebody knows why Cydia doesn't work after upgrade to iPhone v. 2.2.
      It's an iPhone1 (2G) upgraded (from v.2.1) with PwnageTool_2.2.1 & iTunes 8.0.2, Cydia shows and opens but closes whatever i choise -user/hacker/developer-.
      I tried QuickPwn_2.2 with same results Cydia shows and opens but closes automaticaly after level choise.
      Thanks & regards,
      Puchito

      I solved problem my self.
      Apparently I did a mistake:
      At the PwnageTool in the steg Cydia Settings i added Cydia.
      As it's going automatically in next step it has to be a crash.
      Then when I used QuickPwn_2.2 to repair it apparently QuickPwn took the wrong iPhone1,1_2.2_5G77_Custom_Restore.ipsw.
      SOLUTION: I started the upgrade from the begining with PwnageTool_2.2.1 & iTunes 8.0.2...
      Now both iPhone and Cydia work fine!

      I cant get my phone to unlock. I have a 3g version 2.2 and the quickpwn locks up on the wait for iphone to connect in recovery mode. My phone says connect to iTunes and i have to restore it every time. Any advice?

      I jailbroke my phone 3g, worked ok for long, now the "phone app" does`t work, I cannot dial. I open it and it closes after a few secs.

      I updated to the 2.2 and my problem seems pretty unique. Everything works fine and I have no functional problems, but when I receive/send a text, email, or phone call, my time is wrong. I can receive a text at 10am and it shows up with the time of 3:48pm. My time is set right on the homescreen. Anyone else have this problem?
      Thanks

      I had the same problem (Phone button not working), and what I did was

      Reinstall KATE
      Go to settings, check the licence box on Kate (RIP Dev Section) and ask for a trial licence.
      Once KATE is active, I went to INSTALLER and uninstall KATE.
      Back to settings and in the RiP DEV box I hit restart springboard
