    I know most of you are going to think there is no point to downgrading, but I just watched the iPhone Dev Team's video and it seems pretty straight forward, apple applied some code that doesn't allow us to modify the kernal if you are on 2.2. Well, that kinda sucks, but apparently they are making a tool that lets you load a part of 2.1.1 on your 2.2 firmware which allows you to modify the kernal. So, this means another step for users on 2.2. All I am saying is that low level users may not want to go through this second step, and I just wanna get a rough estimate on who is staying on 2.2 and who is downgrading. This is defiantly not as easy as the 1.x days

    I'll downgrade if it's easier.

    Then prolly upgrade to 2.2 again and jailbreak at a later time

    Ill probably be staying at 2.2 for faster Safari.
    That's and it seems to have better battery life than 2.1.1.

    I'm sure they'll (they being the iPhone Dev team) find a way around this.

    2.2 also has better Wi-Fi support, and isn't as buggy with connecting to access points.

    Agreed, but if 2.2 jailbreak is buggy, I am going down to 2.1.1

    I am sure the second step to boot part of 2.1.1 won't be that much of a hastle for those with Jailbreaking experience. For that reason I am staying at 2.2 because I think the tool will take care of that for me without much extra work. I think it would be more work downgrading to 2.1.1 than doing the second step.

    Im pretty sure they will release the jb for both 2.1.1 and 2.2 at the same time. It don't think there will be much difference between the two. But if i must downgrade i shall, though in the meantime, 2.2 it is.
