Edit: It seems that you cant add anything from cydia, the cydia icon itself is plain white????

If you dont need to unlock and only want to enable multitasking and background wallpapers then i guess its ok but when I tried to use ultrasnow ect I get this message:

"The requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed"

Im guessing this will be sorted out soon??

Got mine Jailbroke again, only problem i am having is that winterboard keeps crashing, apart from that working ok.

I think winterboard as always slowed the 3g down a bit, I think that this coupled with the multi tasking and background wallpapers might be a little to much.

Thanks that's just a minor thing now, wish i never updated in the first place yesterday, but all is well now.

Thanks once again.:smashin:

I'm a bit confused.... :blush:

I've got an 8 gig 3G running 3.1.3, jail broken using Spirit and unlocked by O2.

I've got it for sale in the classifieds as it is, but I'd like to update to iOS4-if I could keep keep the J/B (i gather the unlock is permanent).

What are my options now?

Ta. :)

So you just updated to iOS4 using iTunes as normal and then ran redsn0w to jailbreak it?

Was yours unlocked by 02?

Cheers.

Mine was supplied by o2 direct

Winterboard dint work for me at first, but after a couple of downloads and a reinstall it did work, but for some reason multi task would not work with winterboard installed.

Interesting, thanks.

What firmware & J/B were you running prior to iOS4?

I noticed this also... so i removed it for the time being
I would think they need to update the apps on Cydia but im not that tech minded

I used blackrain on 3.1.2 but accidently upgraded to 3.1.3 and lost the Jailbreak so for a while now my iphone has just had the standard settings
