    Let me start out by saying "Yes" I have read this sticky => http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=983491. Please read on...

    I am going to sell my original iPhone. I am curious about the advantages and disadvantages of jailbreaking this phone for someone.

    Have the jailbroken apps surpassed the capabilities of the original iPhone or are there still good reasons for it?

    Basically has this phone become obsolete even in the jailbreak world where the apps just aren't supported or run as well on it?

    I am curious so I can post these adv/disadv as a side-note of my ad when I sell it.

    I appreciate your feedback and suggestions

    I would definitely jailbreak it, but I'm not sure it would make a massive difference: the original iPhone is pretty obsolete even in jailbroken guise

    If you jailbreak and unlock you can probably sell for a little bit more.

    There are some jailbreak tweaks that work just fine on a jailbroken 2g iphone. Such as sbsettings.

    I'll probably just jailbreak it to check it out. Then restore the phone if the buyer doesn't want it jailbroken. That way I can provide a list of some of the apps that can only be ran on a jailbroken phone.

    Thanks for the replies.
