    I must say after upgrading to FW 3.0 then jailbreaking the device, I wasnt completely happy with the performance or the constant crashes and issues.
    Wifi drops, Cydia crashes (more than usual), flickering screen, non working apps, seems the list is endless. For those who have stayed with 3.0 are you experiencing similar issues? FWIW, ive reverted back to 2.2.1 for now, and everythings hunky dory which is annoying 'cos i really liked the 3.0 additional features.

    No almondo, not experiencing any of those issues. A lot of problems that you mentioned have been faced by some others & people have provided them with solutions too. Request you to search the forums in relevant sections. 3.0 is much better than 2.2.1.

    For it having just come out I think that 3.0 is quite nice and things don't crash that much for me. The only problem i'm having is with the app store.

    I too have the screen flicker. I only notice it when the brightness is set to the lowest, regrardless of whether auto brightness is enabled or not...but mine did that with 2.2 as well. Sometimes is worse than others, and it seems to be related to memory usage. less memory = more flicker.
