    Probably too many to list...many themes, utilities, apps, etc. Install it and take a look, if you don't like it you can restore back to original firmware and no one will be the wiser.

    Typically you want the latest version of firmware because that's the most stable. However in the jailbreaking world, there is usually a delay between when the new firmware is released and when it is jailbroken. As of right now, the only way to jailbreak 2.0.2 is to use a new program called QuickPwn. I haven't used that so I don't know anything about it and I believe there are some issues where Cydia and/or Installer aren't being installed when you do it that way. However if you wait a few days then the other tools that allow you to jailbreak (Pwnage and Winpwn) should be updated to handle 2.0.2. I suggest using these tools as there are many tutorials available online and a lot of information on how to use them. Another option is to use these tools and jailbreak onto 2.0.1 just to see if you like it, then you can update to 2.0.2 when the time comes like the rest of us.

    Not if you back it up. You can always re-sync music and movies but you should back up your phone in iTunes or have all of your contacts in address book or mobileme.

    You created a custom firmware for the correct device and did NOT choose the unlock option, correct? Either way, create a new custom firmware image and try again

    Just a side note: QuickPwn does not list 2.0.2 as compatible yet on the iphone-dev-team's blog

    i'm assuming you used the "simple mode," which automatically assumes you are not an AT&T customer, and will try to activate your phone. unfortunately, you'll have to do the whole process over again, but use expert mode and make sure to uncheck the box that says "activate iPhone" and it should work

    You should not have to DFU it again, just follow the previous poster's instructions
