Forgot that...

I'm pretty sure that the iPhone 3G did NOT have a clean restore, as there shouldn't be a wallpaper on an untouched 4.2.1 FW.

It's a lockscreen wallpaper and it has always been available to change on the 3G.

Why is the iPhone 2G the only one charging while thery are all connected with the USB cable..? :P
miskol - September 27, 2012 at 9:02am
because the 2G is so old that the battery is useless without connected to power cable. so to standardize, all other iPhones is also connected with cable but not powered.
manny - September 27, 2012 at 2:21pm
hey i don't know about the battery... i gave that phone to my father. and it last him 1 1/2 days easily with his Edge on. he never has drop calls.. i think it was one of there best phones.
kashyap - September 27, 2012 at 5:57pm

The more apps you have on your springboard, the more the time it needs to boot. You should make the test with every device at the latest possible stock iOS. No additions.
