    No

    Is this a trick question? 'factory 2.2.1' is the firmware as delivered from Apple.

    Keep us up todate as to what you find interesting on the Jb phone as I just JB mine on Wednesday and so far have only added hClipboard and bossprefs (so I can hide the unused icons and change settings). I have winterboard installed but am about to uninstall it depending on if i see any lag!

    try sb settings it is better then boss prefs. you can bring it up with two fingers at the top of the screen very handy.

    winterboard is fine, not much of a lag issue, i'd say the ease of use / lag is a pretty even trade off

    followed the endless youtube videos of instructions...

    What type of usb hub did you use, im just using a plain one and keep getting the white screen of death, everything on quickpwn downloads correctly but my screen is white. Did i enter DFU mode correctly or is there a bigger problem?

    I jailbroke mine a while ago and have a few wee apps making it imho a better phone.

    Live clock - makes the clock on your homescreen active
    vibrus - haptic feedback when typing
    winter board - to make it abit slicker - nothing mad though
    boss prefs
    and I'm constantly checking on the status of sweettooth - PROPER bluetooth for the iphone.

    Could you point me to Vibrus - does it need a different source?
    and what about this Sweettooth - any word on A2DP?

    So Skip youtube and follow the dev-team blog to JB your phone! I have the ADC downloads if you need them - so that no-one would have to sign-up for an account to get them again.

    Vibrus - it was just in cydia one day - Big Boss is the source - google search shouldnt be too hard to find.

    sweetooth - is just a stumbler now but go to ibluethoothproject.com for more info

    Thanks! After I posted I realized that I could just check and I did. Do you know if keyvib is better or worse? Does vibra need keyclicks on like keyvib? And does it slow down your typing?

    When I had it installed, I typed too fast for it to keep up, and it slowed things down a bit. Not worth it. It is a gimmick IMO

    well with vibrus - you can customise it, intensity and its speed.

    keyvib is for 3g vibrus for 2g, I like it - each to there own.
