winterboard for themes
5 col dock is good - i have SMS, Mail, Camera, Safari, Phone
5 col springboard - more apps per page
a winterboard theme that makes icons smaller (useful with 5 col springboard)
backgrounds - runs apps in background!
hapticPro - vibrate on keypress
ultrasn0w - unlock

Have jailbroken my 3g recently, just google Redsnow :-)

so basically all apps can be obtained free (theoretically)? So what happens when I sync with my itunes? I wont get banned or anything like that?

Theres a thing called appsync so it allows you to sync with itunes.

Only con is that the iphone does get alittle slower when you jailbreak it.

Have a look at [url]www.appulo.us[/url] to see what is available once you've jailbroken it :thumbsup:

Only a little slower. Not like a major wait.

Isn't that just stealing, or at the very least dishonest?

Sure is, but then, as I pointed out the last time you took a snipe at me, I simply don't care, especially about geeks like you that have nothing better to do than just take pot shots at every opportunity..

:-D

EDIT - TomTom is out now and i've just used it to go to my local shop as a tester, Glad to say it's as good as the Hacked version i DIDNT pay for that I put on my Navigo.. So nice one..

Fair enough. I don't know whether or not you have a job, but maybe one day you'll perhaps grow to dislike those who would take something that you've worked on without paying for it.

Or maybe if I were to suffer some catastrophic financial problem and not be able to afford things, maybe I'd see stealing as 'not a big thing'.

TomTom is very good btw, and very reasonably priced for most people.

By that, do you mean you bet that you could make unsubstantiated claims on an internet forum about your earnings AT THE SAME TIME as posting about how you feel the need to steal sat-nav software that only costs £60?

I don't know if you've got much to put on their table there, do you?

again, feel free to think what you like, It has nothing to do with how much money i earn or have available. I simply choose to aquire programs like these, 360 games etc, by not actually paying for them. If you choose to spend your hard earned money on that sort of thing, then that is again, up to you.

Peace. LOL

you could do so much when you jailbreak theres people who have got Gamboy advance emulators and Playstation emulators now thats awesome might have to jailbreak my one.

I would offer you my sympathies, but I know people who regularly have to see people like you brazenly using their wares without you paying for them.

The sooner the authorities crack down on people like you, the better.

But I wish you the best in the future, and I hope you can one day afford to purchase things:thumbsup:

Love it, you should have a newspaper column.

Once again, I "could" if I wanted to, purchase everything I wanted, If I chose to, but i choose to use my disposable income on other things, again, something that is my choice, just like it is yours to do otherwise.

No I didn't know that - why would I?

I just think people should be cool and not take from one another. Maybe some people think they're 'bad boys' for saying they steal stuff on the net, but that's a bit juvenile.

But maybe I'd change my tune if I was in their shoes.

So you're saying even the law enforcement shouldn't download?

Why I know a few police officers who download illegal music.

Even one who's pretty high up.

Corrupted eh?..
