    I have my 2.1 Jailbroken Touch just the way I want it. I have about 1.5GB of ROMS and MXtube Videos on it - so it would take a LOT of time in SSH to transfer it all back on. Not to mention pictures, music, and my apps (from appstore and Cydia as well).

    Is 2.2 worth upgrading to, or should I wait for 2.3?

    Is there any sort of incompatibility with Cydia or Jailbroken apps? I know that it's still the 2.x system, but with new firmware comes some glitches. Are there any with 2.2?

    Everything runs smoothly for me. Oh and another small difference (don't quite remember if this was in earlier 2.x versions or not) when you are restoring to 2.2 it shows a progress bar.
