    Post here if you didn't have success with the first version, and find the RC2 does a better job.

    +1 here :). RC1 just kept putting my phone in recovery mode then freezing, RC2 worked first time, love it! I was missing having a jailbroken phone, I've been jailbroken since my first gen iPhone, and then the 3G, I'm so happy now I have my 3GS jailbroken :)!

    I installed the first beta. Do I have to re-jailbreak with RC2 to get the patches?

    People have been running RC2 over the first release with no issue, though of course, ymmv.

    I ran RC2 over RC1 and it took 30 seconds, didn't lose anything. Errors in terminal are gone now. As mentioned above, tricker/voip don't work, I thought they only needed the vm_patch :( Guess not.

    Any good tutorials out there for noobs like myself? Just got my iPhone this past week and I really don't like the idea of screwing around with my phone when I don't know what I'm doing. Hehe.

    When you guys install rc2 over rc1 do your freeze icon pop up? I deleted freeze in rc1 after I install Cydia. Installing rc2 did remove the terminal errors though.

    What apps are still not working under this?

    The cydia apps I used a lot were supreme prefs, ssh, cycorder(wont be necessary anymore), lockinfo, pandora controls, and winterboard. I wanted to start using Cylay too.

    If these for the most part work, I'm gonna consider signing a contract and getting a 3GS(I bought my current and previous iphones used).

    WinterBoard does not work, I read that Cylay does not work. Can't comment on the others. Many apps relying on MobileSubstrate still aren't 100% compatible (WB, VoIPover3G, etc).

    As a side note, Purplera1n RC2a has been released. He says that if you already have RC2, theres absolutely no reason to upgrade.
