    Has anyone encountered their keyboard disappearing when in Safari? It's happening now as I type this. But when I go to the numbers screen it shows up. Anyone else having this issue?

    Hi guys.

    very informative thread you have going on here. Keep it up.

    A quick question. I have an unlocked, jailbroken iphone 2G running 2.2.1

    I want to upgrade to OS 3.0 Beta 5.

    will it void my unlock?
    will i be able to unlock after i have upgraded?
    will i be able to jailbreak after i upgrade?

    i could live without a jailbroken phone but not without an unlocked phone, obviously.

    I will appreciate the help guys.

    if u have an factory unlocked one then ur fone will remain unlocked. But if u want to upgrade to 3.0 beta 5, u have to be a dev ( u can ask some devs in this thread to add ur device so that u can use beta 5). Currently there's no jailbreak for beta 5 yet, but I've heard that u could use Quickpwn for beta 4 to jailbreak beta 5, but there'll be some errors due to the wrong kernels

    thanks for the quick reply man. duly appreciated.
    just that i dont know if my phone was factory unlocked. it was unlocked when i got it from a friend. almost new.
    is there any way to tell if it was factory unlocked?
    plus i think when i upgraded it to 2.2.1 from 2.2 i think it logged onto my operator's GSM network even before i used quickpwn to unlock and jailbreak it. it was a while back and i think thats what happened.

    Is it worth upgrading to b5? I was happy with b3, and now I'm having problems with b4...I can't keep a wifi or 3G connection...it keeps dropping both and sitting in EDGE (I'm in NYC with full 3G coverage). Very annoying when I'm trying to use the REMOTE program.

    Should I upgrade to b5 or go back down to b3? It sounds like they've disabled MMS in b5 (not that I ever got it working anyway).

    If you're using the first iPhone (2g) your unlock will remain when you upgrade to beta 5

    well,dont know if it works but if ur fone is factory unlocked, u then can use ur fone with any sims of any network provider. If u cant use the fone after changing the sim, then it's not factory unlocked.

    edit: to find UUID, plug ur phone in and start up iTunes, choose ur phone on Devices tab and u'll on the summary tab. Click on the Serial number, it'll change into UUID, then choose Edit and copy to copy it, then send to any devs u know to ask them add that UUID for u

    I have personally always done a clean restore and then setup the iPhone as new.

    anyone has this problem ? some icon has the ugly gloss ontop
    I have never done much theming, but I've now replaced all my icons with matte icons. I'm very happy with the results.

    If you find the Info.plist file for an application you can edit it to get rid of the glossy crap. The path will be something like
    Code:
    Applications/5FCB6BB9-1BF5-40A6-AE0F-9002B2D6F68C/Monopoly.app/Info.plist
    . You'll need a plist editor (If you install xcode the you will have one).

    Add a new key at the end named
    Code:
    UIPrerenderedIcon
    and set the value to 1. If you then respring your app should no longer have the glossy **** over it's icon.

    W00t! Been gone all day and I was so happy to come home and see that Cydia is just about ready for 3.0. As soon as it's released I'll be back in a jiffy. LOL. Downgraded yesterday, couldn't stand having such a bland phone and I really missed my sbsettings and quick sms.
