Iphone firmware 2G

Note to 2G users: If you upgrade in iTunes you will lose your jailbreak, but retain your unlock/activation due to the baseband not changing. If you restore, you will lose your jailbreak AND activation but remain unlocked.

Note to 3G Users – If you upgrade in iTunes to 2.1 and have intelliscreen installed (or other programs that modify your com.apple.springboard.plist) you WILL get the Spinning Wheel of Death after you upgrade and have to restore.

Update: What we’ve noticed so far:

Significantly improved reception (my iPhone went from having no service anywhere in my neighborhood to having 1-2 bars in my house, which rocks, btw)
The screenshot feature now makes a camera shutter noise
Typing on the keyboard is much smoother
App downloads can now be paused by tapping on them
Updated apps now stay in the same spot they were put in before they were updated
