    I highly recommend not to upgrade to 3.0 and jailbreak. I have a 2g and have nothing but problems with 3.0, at first loading up cydia it was flickering with the apple logo, fine restart didn't have the problem, but for some reason I felt like something horrible was gonna happen.

    I deleted a couple apps to free up space on my phone, and I put winterboard back on but the icon was my previously deleted app, but winterboard was there and working fine.

    I put most of my apps back on and this morning I was listening to iHeartradio and it wasn't picking a good signal, so I restarted my phone and it keeps rebooting itself. It never got back to springboard.

    So I restored it in DFU mode, did the jailbreak, and restored with my
    previous backup(that worked fine) and all my messages are gone all my contacts are gone all my pictures are gone! So I restore again making sure I didn't mistakinly click set up as new phone and yet again the same problem happened again. I didn't it once more with another backup and all I got was my pictures. Thankfully I backed up my contacts on my PC. But ita really irratring not to have my messges there.

    You know the CAPS button, you know how to quickly double click it and CAPS is on, yeah each time I jailbreak and restore, it seems likes apple removed that feature? Anyone with that proble

    Finally I my first app I put on there is MLB At Bat, I open it up and guess what, my phone is rebooting itself, and I only upgrading cydia and installed openSHH and winterboard.

    This has been by far the worst experience I've had with this phone. I am really frustrated with everything now, I've been ticked off before but I knew what was going on, but this redsn0w and 3.0 is annoying. I recommend to stay with 2.2.x and wait until like 3.1 comes out, let cydia and redsn0w upgrade and settle down.

    I know there are threads on some of my issues but I'm really frustrated and I wanna vent thank you. :mad:

    Sounds to me like some of the jail-broken programs just aren't updated to work on the 3.0 software is all. Give it some time for the developers to update there programs. I jailbroke my 2g phone w/3.0 put winterboard on and got some themes rolling and everythings just peachy (but i'm not using any other non apple programs either). As for your caps lock 3.0 update turns it off by default. to enable it just go to settings/general/keyboard and switch on enable caps lock. Then your double click caps lock should be back.

    I feel stupid about the keyboard thing but now, I have installed some cydia apps requiring a reboot. So I closed it and powered it back... Same problem as before, I'm wondering now is it the ispw I'm using in redsn0w or what? Is anyone having problems like this?

    I´m fine with 3.0, but I have not been able to put wintherboard, and it seems from other threads that I´m not the only one.

    Buy I´m enjoying 3.0 though... I like the copy paste option and the new search tool.

    It could be the ipsw. You shouldn't need any other ipsw than the stock 3.0 version that iTunes downloads, RedSn0w does any modifications that are needed to that without you needing to make or find a custom version.
