    Hey guys,
    I wanna ask you about the problem I have. Here's my story:
    original version 1.1.2
    downgrade to 1.1.1
    jailbreaking it through jailbreakme.com (installing appsnap)
    happy life
    accidental upgrading to 1.1.3

    As a result of that- my screen got smaller by few pixels (5-7 aproximately)at each side.
    I tried to restore 1.1.3, downgrade to 1.1.1 but nothing fixed it.
    Can you help me please?

    Thank you
    Mario

    I've been wondering about this. However, I don't think it is only in 1.1.3 - I think this is the same in every FW version.

    If you look at the edges of the used screen you can see what looks like a few unused pixels to every side - this confused me quite a bit - why would you use less of the screen if more was available?
    Anybody got any thoughts on this?

    Umm... thats not part of the LCD... Its the bounadary around it. Look at a 5g iPod and you'll see what I mean.

    I can definitely make out pixels.
    Don't have a 5g to hand or anything that'll go up that close in enough detail =/
