    Feel free to comment about the problems you've had with it. Not for Touch, though.

    Not only did I experience problems, I thought my phone was seriously borked. It went into a never ending reboot cycle, and it was all I could do to get it to turn off. Once I got it turned off, I was able to restore to 1.1.4, so there was no permanent damange.....other than to my courage regarding homebrew on my iPhone. Needless to say, I've decided to stay un-jailbroken for the time being.

    I used ZiPhone....that may have been my downfall.

    I had to do a full restore this morning. I'd been jailbroken for quite a while with no problems but then I found a way to get customize to work. I got up this morning, went to check my email and the at&t, edge symbol, time and battery indicator were all bunched together in the right corner and my screen was unresponsive while in any of the applications. Its weird cuz everything was working fine when I docked it last night (wall outlet; no contact with my computer).
    The restore went fine and I figure I might as well leave it for now with the new firmware release so close.

    Ja, I have. Nothing that 10 minutes with iTunes didn't fix though ;)

    Pretty much any issue can be fixed with some creative hacking (/me puts on his white hat) or, if it's really horrid, a restore.

    No problems over here (coming from 1.0.2 up to 1.1.4), I couldn't love the hacked part of my iPhone more.

    In front of my Mac.
    Originally used Ziphone but decided to try iLiberty. iLiberty went smoothly, but now my camera and photos apps do not work, along with a slew of other issues. I'm restoring back to factory settings and forgetting about jailbreaking.

    Yes, but nothing a restore couldn't fix. Unlocking is a different story, however; I had some hellish experiences with 1.0.2 and revirginizing for 1.1.1.
