    Default same problem here

    i have the same problem with my iphone 2g. went from 1.1.4 to 2.2.1 and noticed it keeps rebooting on me. at first I thought maybe my phone is overheating, so i took it out of the case, but it still reboots on it's own. It looks like a memory leak problem...

    i've already unlocked it twice using quickpwn on windows xp. First time i only added cydia, and i did a sync with contacts, photos, and old data...that kindda messed things up, so I unlocked again. (wasn't paying attention if it was crashing alot on this first run).

    Second time i added both Installer and Cydia. Then when I ran cydia for the first time it asked if I want to update all files, or just essential...I clicked ALL and it screwed up cydia. So i plugged in quickpwn to only re-install cydia and cydia worked again. But noticed that it crashes a whole lot. This second time, i didn't sync my contacts, sms, photos or anything.

    I also synced with Itunes for free apps and it works. Some apps will give a "verify" problem, but I would just delete it and download agian.

    Problems that I constantly have with my iphone on 2.2.1:
    - constant crashes when opening sms, mail, apps. web browser seems fine.
    - once i open one app or mail and it works, then turn off the iphone...wait awhile, and sometimes it just reboots on it's own. same with having one app open for awhile and pressing around, it would just reboot.

    I'm going to unlock again with quickpwn, but this time im only gonna add cydia (i dont use installer, so screw it). Will post another reply in a few days with results.

    sorry for the long reply...

    Default update to iphone 2g crashing on 2.2.1

    OK here's an update:

    - reinstalled 2.2.1 on my iphone 2g again using quickpwn and only added cydia. OK.
    - ran cydia and only updated ESSENTIAL files. OK.
    - added imobilepatch for mobileinstallation files. for some reason, apps that i purchased previously wouldn't open, so running this help fix it.

    At first things ran fine for awhile, the it started crashing again...THEN i installed BossPrefs from Cydia and clicked on "FIX USER DIR PERMISSIONS" and it stopped a lot of the crashing (still minor crashes, but a lot better now).

    - Install BossPrefs, open it and click on MORE, then select "Fix User Dir Permissions". It states specifically that Dir Permissions is what's causing many of the apps to crash. This practically fixed my sms, safari, and notes from crashing.
    - Install MobileInstallation patch (you'll have to find a repo and add it in cydia for it to show up). Helped me fix my apps from crashing!

    So i think the whole problem was Dir permissions!!

    Peace!

    Hi Joc,

    I think the problem you are describing is different to what this thread is about. My crashes occur only in sleep mode. It just becomes black and the only way is to reset it. It may be that the phone goes in restore mode, but I don't really know. It happens to me every some days...

    Any more help or suggestion is welcome.
    For the moment, I'm just hoping that the coming firmware 3.0 fixes the problem...

    Guys, when experiencing problems like these, first DFU restore to Apple stock firmware and do your jailbreak/activation/unlock. "Setup as a new iphone" when connected to iTunes, dont "restore from a backup". You'll get back outdated or corrupt plist files if you restore.
    before installing stuff, try if the iPhone works without tons of additional apps installed. in most cases the problem is either caused by not setting up as a new iphone or installing $%&-apps.

    just my 2 cent

    Well, now I don't have installous, but I still have this problem on firmware 3.1.3.

    Can someone share a solution?

    I really looked everywhere, and now this "coma" is happening many times every day.
    I've tried the solution of EmNat, but it didn't work:
    iPhone won't wake up from standy/sleep unless I press Menu+Power buttons... - Page 3 - MacRumors Forums

    PLEASE HELP!

    I recently installed Insomnia, which actually stopped this "coma" or "deep sleep" problem, but drains my battery a lot. It is a bit like renaming the file com.apple.SystemPowerProfileDefaults.plist, as the phone never goes to full sleep, which therefore suggests that it is a software problem, not hardware, and that it should be possible to fix.

    HELP

    Thanks
