Upgrading my unlocked and jailbroken first generation iPhone from the 1.1.4 to 2.0.1 firmware wasn’t simple but I managed to get it done thanks to all the videos and blog post tutorials out there. But unfortunately I am not so happy with the upgrade. The firmware feels like it’s still in a beta state. 

Applications take a lot longer to launch, tapping on the keyboard lags sometimes, and Safari seems to crash a lot more often. It is certainly obvious that the 1.1.4 firmware is faster and a lot more stable. I am not saying that I keep facing those issues on a daily basis (although it’s true for some) but the difference between both firmwares is hard to not notice immediately.

Apple should have waited another month or so to fix all the bugs that most iPhone 3G owners are now experiencing before rushing it out prematurely to stores. I am certainly not the only iPhone user running 2.0.1 who is experiencing these issues. A quick search on Google will prove there are thousands more with similar and possibly more problems with the 2.0 firmware in general.

Things have been going either pretty slow or extremely slow lately. I haven’t even blogged for a while, mainly for the fact that my mind has decided to idle and started declining any creativity requests.
What could possibly be the reason? I mean, I have a lot on the go at work (don’t even get me started), my father is back in town (yay me), and my iPhone is back from repairs as well as I just received a new phone from my dad (Nokia N95 8GB). But still, my mind seems to take all that for granted and somehow just wants a timeout!
I even bought a new book to get my mind started again but I couldn’t get past the first chapter. Plus I have gained weight lately (obviously eating out of boredom). It’s like things are getting worse and I am failing at taking back control of my life.
All I have to say is that I am hoping this is a short phase that I am going through and I will be taking some serious actions to turn this curse around and get my feet and mind back on track.
