    so I have a iphone 2G 8gb version

    its already jb/unlocked and has 3.1.3 (7E18) - Modem Firmware 04.05.04_G

    I am pretty sure I want to stay at 3.1.3 since its a 2G but were there any improvements because my 3G sucks with os4

    but this hasnent been updated since 3.1.3 came out and I jb/unlocked it then so that was like a year ago or more I think - what do I have to do to get cydia up to date and is there anything else I should be doing

    the phone works now on tmobile and att, I want to keep it that way

    I agree, but isn't what he has the highest you can go on that phone since it's a 2g?

    I think so. I know even for a 3G 3.1.3 is the highest recommended 4.0 is ungodly slow.

    You are "topped out" with your original iPhone in terms of firmware. You have no option but to stay at 3.1.3 so worrying about updating it is moot.

    What do you mean what do you have to do to get Cydia up to date? You go to Cydia and update it :confused:

    You can't update your firmware, and Cydia updates automatically when you open it. If for some reason it doesn't, click on the "Changes" button down at the bottom.

    yea I am going to stay at 3.1.3 even if there was a working 4 out there - I remember when I did this that it was the last 3.1.3 there was before 4 came out

    first I need to erase everything on it not downloaded from cydia - all pictures and contacts and logs and stuff - I also need to change the name of it

    can I be using the latest version of itunes or should I keep at version 9 that I have now and have been denying updates for about a year almost because I was worried that there could be a problem because I have a 3g also

    but in cydia I get messages about host not reachable and stuff like that sometimes - is the a newer version of cydia that has to be installed by the computer not by cydia it self?
