    It would be more worth it to update to 3.0...

    If you wanna jailbreak and unlock wait for the dev-team to release the new JB and ultrasn0w before updating to 3.0. 2.2 is OOOLLLD news now...

    Jailbreak and unlock available for 2G iPhones with redsn0w. Disregard what I said earlier. I missed the 2G part.

    umm were you using redsn0w? Or another jailbreak tool? Like pwnage tool or I forgot what the one for pc is called.

    Just start over anyhow. Plug your phone into your comp and let iTunes read that your phone is in dfu mode and restore again. Then rejailbreak will redsn0w or something else the dev team provided. Make sure our iTunes is v8.2

    Appbackup never worked for me. Aptbackup did though. It actually kept all of my cydia stuff except for a couple minor things like ssh sbsettings and wb. Just for future ref. use aptbackup not appbackup. Anyways congrats and have fun!

    Not appbackup, apTbackup. They're different. I used aptbackup to backup my cydia apps/themes and then when I rejailbroke my phone, I went to cydia and downloaded aptbackup again. Then I hit the restore button from within aptbackup and about 75% of my things were back automatically.

    There is no video recorder for 2G or 3G iPhones. Use cycorder from cydia. Also, mms for other carriers must be manually activated. I have tmobile so I followed a thread from these forums under mms for tmobile and filled in the blanks. I don't know what carrier you have so I don't know what you need to fill out your apn settings for mms.
