    Basically I've got some pictures I'd like to keep ;), but I don't want other people to be able to see them if they are playing on my phone (like family, co-workers)?????

    PhotoAlbums+ ($2.99) in Cydia let's you password protect and add new folders.

    Unless his "private" photos are sitting in Camera Roll, he's SOL. There's currently no way to get existing pictures into a PhotoAlbums+ folder from anywhere other than the Camera Roll.

    I wish I'd known about this before buying as it's a deal-breaker for me. The good news is that the dev is looking into a workaround.

    OP - who cares? If you want to carry porn on your phone, just put it in a separate album, turn on parental control to the pictures app, or just own it. It's your phone, who cares, unless you're somehow embarrassed about it. I personally don't, but I wouldn't be ashamed of it if I chose to.

    You don't need to be jailbroken for this. Install any number of the Private photo apps from the app store. I use "Private Pics Free" and it works great

    What does it matter to you what I want to do with my phone?


    To everyone else, thanks for the suggestions I'll look into the app's suggested.
