    If I stay on 1.1.4 jailbroken will I get left behind as far as apps go or is the support still comparable to the 2.1 support? I still think 1.1.4 is superior and would prefer to stick with it but want the diverse apps.

    What do you think?

    if you want to use your phone as a phone with no lag using the existing apps stick to 1.1.4

    If I could downgrade to 1.1.4 from 2.1, I would do it in a blink of an eye.

    2.1 is garbage when compared to 1.1.4

    with 2.1 you get some apps and new features, but the phone is basically a joke to use, its that laggy.

    If you are on a first gen iPhone then you can downgrade from 2.1 to 1.1.4 That's what I did. Let me know if you need to know how I did it.

    I'd love to know how to ( then I can stop whining ). I tried following the iClarified method, and got as far as restoring the firmware up to step 10, but then had issues, can't remember exact details.

    I could never find a download of pwnage 1.0, which didn't help.

    If you can help to downgrade to 1.1.4 it would be most appreciated.

    I finally got it to work, I'm now on 1.1.4.... at last I can use my phone as a phone with no lag, no crashes.

    2.1 to 1.1.4 is the best upgrade I've ever done.:D

    I have no issues with 2.1 at all. Granted 1.1 may be stable but I've used 2.1 as a road warrior and it works flawless. Also 2.1 has solved my 3g issues too. Oh btw sent from iPhone. :)

    hi could you please let me know how you did this in the end? I've a 2g phone that I upgraded from 1.1.2 to 2.1 and want to go back, ideally to 1.1.2 but 1.1.4 will be just as good at the moment.

    i used the tutorial from iclarified.

    I had to do the process a few times, when you get to step 10 you have to force the phone into emergency phone call only mode, and then back into restore mode, then use pwnage 1.0.

    To force it out of restore mode at step 10 I had to use iliberty which crashed straight away but did force the phone out of restore into emergency phone call only mode.

    I had to do the process several times before getting it right so expect to have to restore and start the process from scratch a few times before you get it right.

    Why would 1.1.2 be more ideal than 1.1.4?

    1.1.2 doesn't even have icon wiggle mode or double tab home button.

    cos I knew 1.1.2 works just fine for me and I never went to 1.1.4 that's all. as it happens I've jut gone to 1.1.4 on my way back down and I've stopped there (at least for now) and its pretty good.

    thanks for the link ebony. most useful
