    I got my iPhone yesterday, it came with 1.1.2 out of the box. I managed to resist a whole three hours before hacking it ;) The biggest thing I want is Apollo IM.

    I followed the procedure to downgrade to 1.1.1, jailbreak, prep, upgrade back to 1.1.2, jailbreak, and install apps without any issues. Now that I've used the phone for a day though, I have to say I'm amazed at how unstable it has become.

    Core apps like Mail, Phone, and the Address Book crash or hang a lot -- Phone got weird on me twice today, and Mail crashed a good half-dozen times when I tried to open a message. As far as third-party stuff goes, I have Installer (of course), Summerboard, Customize, Apollo, iPwnce, Term-vt100, Finder, and DropCopy. I had an RSS reader and a couple games on there, but they sucked so I uninstalled them. Since I last rebooted the phone, I've only opened Apollo, so really Apollo and Summerboard should be the only things loaded into memory.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I mean, I know these are homebrew apps we're loading on here so I knew they wouldn't be perfect, but the degree to which they can interfere with the stable operation of the iPhone's normal apps is disturbing.

    I would just try restoring, and trying this process all over...

    i did the same. i purchased the phone yesterday and downgraded/upgrade/jailbreak'd it later that night. i've been trying apps left and right (so many i had to symbolically link the apps folder to one on the second partition. ive been using it a good bit and havent noticed any instability with the core apps (yet)

    An update to Summerboard 3.0 popped up in Installer earlier this evening, not too long after my original post. It's too soon to say for sure (and I'm knocking on wood right now), but it seems more stable. I haven't had anything go wonky on me since updating.
