    Question [1.1.4] [advice] Is 2.0 upgrade worth it?

    Hi,

    I've been debating on weather or not to upgrade to FW 2.0. My current iPod Touch is jailboken, and I'm really enjoying it (having a dump of wikipedia has its advantages). I understand that the 2.0 firmware does not allow processes in the background (so no ssh, httpd, etc.). However, I'm afraid that the jailbreaking method of doing things is going the way of the dodo bird.

    I guess my main question is this: Is the 2.0 upgrade worth it, and If I do upgrade it, will I have to boot into restore mode to do so, thus deleting all of my vids, pics, and music (I have to manually manage my library because there are duplicates of every song, and it takes a LONG time to copy everything over)?

    Thanks in advance!

    Don't do it. The App Store is mostly apps with functionality already available for 1.1.4 (besides new games), and the number of apps that should be free that people are trying to charge for is amazing (i.e. a $.99 Flashlight.app). The new features are minimal if you're not an Exchange user.
    And yes, you have to do a full restore, nuking all your stuff, and downgrading back is even worse (downgrade iTunes, get into *real* black screen DFU mode, the whole nine yards).
    It's totally not worth it unless you're a 2.0 developer (or know one) with a killer app you just *have* to use today.
    It'll be great jailbroken though, best of both worlds...

    I upgraded from 1.1.4 to 2.0 -- it's cool, but I like the installer, so I just downgraded back to 1.1.4 -- and now i'm gonna go back to 2.0 because I like the myspace app, the facebook app, aim, etc. except i'm gonna use cydia...I'm hearing good things about it so...yah...give it a whirl, if you don't like it, you can always go back

    I am very satisfied with the 2.0 FW, and with the jailbrake, it's even better!

    l updated my 'pod' to 2.0.2 the other day and immediately quickpwned it. l'm very happy with the results and l like Cydia. A few apps are missing that l used before like Stumbler and something called 'Youtube Grabber' which l found better than Mxtube.
    The appstore l think is a total ripoff, but then l don't see much there that l'd want anyway.
