are there even any apps worth jailbreaking for?
Installer doesn't work yet. There are NO jailbroken apps. The only reason to jailbreak right now is to unlock.
i guess ill wait till nes and snes emulators are available lol
one came out today
it doesn't work?
No Installer. Therefore, no apps.
Unless you don't use AT&T. Or have any service, like me, and only use it as everything but the phone.
Umm, the NES emulator is out for it on Cydia. But other than that, like the others said, not much reason to do it for me. I don't need to unlock, and I'd like NES, but don't care much. I would do it if summerboard had been ported though.
I jailbroke my 3G to change the dock background and a few icons. Pretty much any of the apps I need are available on the App Store.
It's far from pointless, but I'd agree that, for most people, jailbreaking probably isn't going to be high on the priority list now.
Remember, unlocking is different from jailbreaking.
Not paying for AT&T service, mom won't switch to Centennial, and Verizon's going GSM anyway.
I won my iPhone, so I never had service.
Um not quite... there's Cydia you can ssh into your phone and therefor change a whole slew of things you can't unless you jailbreak. I have my custom new "*" sounds (SMS, mail, voicemail) along with my custom carrier graphic. In addition you can change your Dock and many other core components... so I'd say worthwhile, not pointless..
I'm not really interested in jailbreaking my iPhone. With the app store, I really don't see a use for it personally.
I would like to change my dock background from the standard black - how did you do it using 2.0?
You can't yet; Customize doesn't work in 2.0.
doesn't seem worth it...yet
once customize, and other apps are released for 2.0 then it will be something to do, but for now, i think ill wait.
Think anyone will ever make a legit customize option and offer it through the App Store? I wonder if Apple would be against a program like this - but I see no reason why we shouldnt be able to customize our phones - thats part of the fun.
You can still change some aspects via SSH through Cydia..
I don't know why they haven't allowed it but I know if apple did allow this, their would be a lot less jail broken phones.
i jailbroke my 3g earlier this week, i wouldnt say its pointless, i've got certain games which you have to pay for from the app store, onto my iphone for free.
basically, i dont see why you wouldnt want to jailbreak? it doesnt make your iphone worse. it only adds features and apps which can access parts of the phone which the sdk doesnt allow..
