    To more detail, what are the downsides to jailbreaking at 2.x, is there some apps that COULD be used in 1.1.x that CANNOT be used on 2.x? I'd like to upgrade my jailbreaked 1.1.4 to 2.x jailbreaked so I can get all the cool apps that are now available from the App Store but I know nothing of the downsides.

    If anyone could tell in specifics of the downsides and if I decide to go 2.x that I can get a tutorial that will help me get my currently 1.1.4/jailbreaked/with apps to upgrade to a 2.x/jailbreaked/save my apps?

    Well, my favourite app, MyMedia is not ported to 2.0
    So that's a bit of a put down for me.

    Although 2.0 has some really good apps too, which I love.
    So there's an equalness of pro's and con's here for me.

    *facepalm*

    NO 1.1.x apps will ever work on 2.x. They run differently. MOST important apps are ported (MxTube, gpSPhone, Winterboard). Most other apps are in the App Store.

    Just upgrade, it's so much better and it's nice to start anew on 2.1.
