    I'm weighing the pro's & cons, and they're tipping in favor of 1.1.4.

    1.1.4 (jailbroken) had:
    + Stability, speed.
    + AFP - iPhone would show up mounted in Finder on my iMac, wirelessly, as an accessible external drive.
    + Tethering - It was available, and worked (just don't be dumb and start downloading movies & torrents & whatnot on it)
    + Summerboard Themes - They worked.
    + Touchpad - Was nice and easy.

    + You can save images in Safari
    + Has EccoNote, iProcrastinate, and Text Reader. These are very great, free, apps that the iPhone should probably have come with in the first place.
    - Crash. Lag. Crash. Lag. Lag. Crash. Lag. Lag. Lag.
    - No File Access
    - Could tether if you were lucky enough to snag the app during the hour before Apple nixed it.
    - Some of the same smaller apps that were available free before, are now available in appstore. ...but as pay apps.
    + Has games though, if you want to sit around playing games on a telephone.

    2.0 (Jailbroken)
    - CrashLagCrashLagCrashLag...
    - Requires new versions to be written of all the old apps. Many won't be, and the few that will be will get to be crashy all over again. Yay!
    - Winterboard - Doesn't work at all for some, Wallpaper doesn't work for the rest.
    - Cytheria or whatever has a metric butt-tonne of unexplained, cryptically named apps that install and disappear into the mists.

    I may just install everything in Cyderia to play around with, before blowing this thing away and putting 1.1.4 back on it, to get disc access mode back. That was huge.

    I would stay with 2.0, i know 1.1.4 had a lot of features, but with the app store there really is no turning back. Also you can get NetShare on your iphone even though they took it off i have a cracked .ipa file that if you jailbreak you iPhone and use Open SSH to replace a file you can use apps that cost money for free!

    You can also do tethering with just 3Proxy and MobileTerminal in 2.0.
    Total file access with jailbroken. Try adding the normal 2.0 positives to the jailbroken ones and you'll have a bigger list than 1.x. Whatever, it's up to you.

    Yea, the only problem is that it takes time to port all of the apps made in 1.x.x into 2.x.x so until thats done you won't have many good jailbreak features like in 1.1.4

    i went back to 1.1.4 i just couldn't stand the jerkiness/laggy keyboard anymore and occasional crashes which whilst less apparent in 2.0.1 are still there. I can live without the apps for a few months

    IMHO FW 1.1.4 is the best firmware Apple has ever released to date
