    Which is the better firmware as of now.
    3.0 have more features and better battery life, but 2.2.1 has a stable Cydia.
    I was originally on 3.0, decided to downgrade to 2.2.1, but now, I feel like moving to 3.0

    Which is better?
    I'd like to hear your opinion, folks!

    yeah im in the same boat as you ,
    currently on 2.2.1 but wanting to move back to 3.0 .

    3.0s features alone to me are better then 2.2.1, but the only bad thing is that imo its lacking wifi stability.

    i only switched back to 2.2.1 because of wifi , but idk i kind of want push back ! lol


    should i switch back regardless of wifi ?

    3.0 is so much better! mainly because of push which i don't even use too much anymore. And spotlight comes in handy sometimes and landscape mail app ( i love so much) and it may lack wi-fi a bit but if it has low signal you will still be fine as long as you have signal. And once more apps come out for 3.0 you can play multilayer against other people on bluetooth (cant wait for that either)

    I like 3.0 and personally I didn't experience any problems with the wifi.

    Not to destroy this 3.0 party here but I see 2.2.1 better

    iPhone 2.2.1 is not as clean looking as 3.o but I can say for a fact that it gets better battery! I have tested this on both my iphone and ipod and they both experience worse battery on 3.0. Personally I love 3.0 buts it just to dam slow and gets crap battery Life.

    When 3.1 and better battery is found then I will be moving over!

    2.2.1
    -----
    Better battery
    Stable
    Faster

    3.0/3.0.1
    ----
    Clean Looking
    A bit slow
    New features
