mine also almost crashed, so does this mean I will be able to run 3rd party apps? assuming that this is not a fake?

its not fake. you would be able to install 3rd party apps and such and can install apps from the app store in the 2.0 firmware. just go to pretty much any iphone modding forum. or

this is old news but please remember it is in apples best intrest right now if the phone get unlocked because it is in a 5 to 10 year contract with cingular that is now att it can not sell the phone through any other mobile phone company in the us
it is att that is making apple place a lock on the phone because it can work on any other mobile companies service and that means people will use the phone on a service currently have or on without getting a new plan just look to other countries they have a laws that say they can not sell a cell phone tied to any service or plane so they are selling it unlocked its just a matter of time untill some one uploades the unlocked firmware to the net and that will mean apple will sell more phones ..... in the us

What are the advantages to having the iPhone cracked now? Not trying to flame. Just wondering what will be done now.

@21Q: dragnandy already explained what it means. In short it means you can run whatever YOU want to run, not just what Apple wants you to be able to run. Homebrew, cracked apps/games, whatever...
