Apple has just released firmware 2.2 for the iPhone 2G/3G.  This update has fixed a few things as well as added several exciting new features, however if your phone is jailbroken DO NOT UPGRADE!  Don’t even upgrade if you plan on downgrading again.  The Dev Team has instructed anyone who ever wishes to jailbreak their phone NOT TO UPGRADE until they make sure that it will not cause any effect to the phone.  Apple has been said to have been instituting some new efforts to block jailbreaking so you might permanantly render your phone un-jailbreakable.
