I have upgraded to iPhone 2.2 and jailbreak it for more than a week. iPhone 2.2 is really great update. I love the new features (Street view, Podcast download, etc) and find Safari much stable than earlier firmware version. iPhoneAtlas, however, reported that quite a number of iPhone users are experiencing issues with the upgrade:
Users, in droves, continue to report a bevy of issues after the update to iPhone OS 2.2. Among the most serious and widespread problems: disappearing applications (both Apple?s and third-party), loss of WiFi connectivity, loss of 3G or EDGE signal strength and an inability to sync with iTunes.
The issues, reported by iPhoneAtlas’ readers, are mostly related to Wifi, iTunes sync problem and missing applications after installing firmware 2.2. Quoted from iPhoneAtlas, here are some of the issues:
- ?When I upgraded, all my apps non-original apps disappears, except for google! When I tried to re-download and then resync them onto my iphone, only some of them would appear. After talking to support, we tried starting my computer (she said this was happening to some people) and then syncing. This added a couple more, but about 10 were still sitting in my itunes and refusing to sync.?
- ?After the os 2.2 update. Safari suddenly disappeared. Syncing etc didn?t work or resolve the issue. I had to do a restore to get things back to normal.?
- ?I also have had a problem with a missing application. My camera application has disappeared and I tried restoring it, and it appeared for about five minutes, let me take one picture, then was suddenly gone again.?
For me, I’m really lucky I do not experience any major issues for every firmware upgrade and even jailbreak. So, do you experience similar issue with iPhone Firmware 2.2, regardless it’s jailbreak or not? Feel free to leave me comment about your experience with iPhone 2.2.
