    Hi, i have an iphone 3g jailbroken and unlocked that has been acting really dumb lately.
    i jailbroke with this http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=295129
    and the iphone has problems which include:
    - Apps closing when clicked
    - when apps do decide to open, it taked about 5 minutes... literally (i timed)
    - Music & video dont (it shows the "play" image in lock screen and top bar but no music comes out)
    --- music sometimes decides to play but acts like if its an ipod touch (doesnt use speaker)
    - text messages receiving and sending texts like 2 minutes later
    - youtube doesn't work (cannot connect to youtube)
    - loses battery; even when off.

    im not sure why this is because when i jailbroke it i did not apply the backup. which means that the phone is clean. it has 343 songs, 4 movies and 28 apps; 16gigs. and the only thing i downloaded from cydia was the unlock, and thats it from cydia. help?

    Wow interesting. My 3G did that (except the battery loss) when i restored from a backup. I restore again, and just left as is, uploaded my message database and its ben fine since then. Try restoring again maybe? if not, might be your firmware, you on 4.0 or 3.1.2/3?

    you definitely need to downgrade, 4.0 simply wont run on the 3G, if you need a guide let me know

    You can re-jailbreak with 'redsn0w' and disable the multitasking and wallpapers BUT it may not do much good. My iphone 3g was running 4.0 when i bought it and both multitasking and wallpapers were disabled but it still lagged sooooooooo much. I've just downgraded back to 3.1.3 and its now running excellent again. As mentioned above, 4.0 is ideal for the 3gs, not 100% for the 3g.
