    I've got a jailbroken 2.2.0 iPhone. I'm wondering if upgrading to 2.2.1 is worth the effort. If it's easy, I'll do it. If not, I'll wait until a major software upgrade comes along.

    So what exactly is the upgrade path here?

    I'm assuming the 2.2.1 firmware will replace the jailbroken firmware so I'd have to jailbreak the phone again, right?

    And what about my cydia apps? Am I going to have to do anything special to make sure they still work? I'm mostly concerned about the iphonemodem application that lets me use my iphone as a wireless modem for my laptop.

    Just dont deal with it cuz the 2.2.1 upgrade isnt really a big deal. And yes you have to rejailbreak it again and download all your cydia apps again. Basically start all over. I myself didnt do the upgrade cuz its not too big of a deal for me. But if apple comes out with say the 3.0 upgrade I will upgrade and do the whole jailbreaking process again

    It's the same as any other jailbreak. What you should be asking is "Does this update offer me anything worth my time to upgrade and jailbreak again?" if yes, go for it. If not, wait until a more significant update. :)

    The only thing that I am aware of not working properly with 2.2.1 is the unlocking process by yellow sn0w, however if iPhone Modem is your main concern, you might want to pop on their website real quick to double check.

    meh i didnt bother upgrading. theres hardly enough changes in 2.2.1 to bother going through the jailbreak process again.

    I agree with not bothering to upgrade. I did the upgrade last week on my jailbroken and unlocked 2G and have had more crashes than with any other firmware update.

    I am on T-Mobile, by the way.

    Loading apps are slow, as well as the sluggishness of my phone seems to be exaggerated. I had a major hiccup last week when EDGE decided to stop working for two days. A restore took care of it, but it happens just when I really need to have it sometimes.

    My two cents.
