    Okay, so I have an iphone 2nd generation unlocked with Cydia. Version 2.0.1 (5B108)It sucks because I can't download any new apps because most of them are 3.0. I have 7.1 GB Capacity with 4.6 GB Available. I am on the Tmobile Network.

    It worked fine for about a year.
    Here are the issues I have:

    • YouTube App stopped working. It says cannot connect to YouTube.
    • If I try opening Cydia it doesnt open.
    • Also, Safari freezes almost everytime I use it. Well, not necessarily freezes but kicks me off so I have to open the app again.
    • I have also come across no longer being able to delete apps manually.
    • It stopped accepting a charge from my home chargers and via usb. I have tried many chargers and out of about 8-9 Ive found that 2 car chargers work to charge the phone.
    • I cannot sync to Itunes to downgrade or upgrade because none of the cords will connect.

    So I pretty much have a useless phone and need help to see how I can fix these issues and maybe find others that have had the same problems. I am considering buying my sister's Iphone 3gs and getting that unlocked until I decide which android phone I want and maybe just master resetting this Iphone 2g if I cannot find any solutions to my problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd restore it to see if that fixes your issues.

    I agree.
    Restore to the highest 2G firmware 3.1.3 then JB and unlock with redsnow.

    When you mean restore do you mean reset all settings, under General>Reset? I wanted to do this as a last option because I dont know if it will sync/charge via usb afterwards thereby not allowing me to jailbreak it. Maybe I should play arond with it after I have another phone.Thanks for the help, Has resetting fixed issues like this for any other people?

    buy a new usb cable. if the new one doesnt work, your port is messed up, and then you will have a useless phone

    Oh I missed that last part:)
    Yes, it would be pretty much useless if the sync/charger post is damaged.
    I think its time for a new iphone.

    Download 3.1.3 and when in iTunes hit Shift+Restore and navigate to where you put 3.1.3.
