    take it you never jailbroke before none of these features are really new. all apple did was take a lot of the popular jailbreak features and add them to the new platform.

    I jailbroke numerous times. It's still an awesome update.

    Yeah, they implemented subpar multi tasking, *gasp* wallpaper, and... what else exactly? Oh yeah, digital zoom which 3rd part apps have had for over a year now.

    Oh wait... FOLDERS. That must've taken years of R&D to come up with.

    You guys are blind. I've JB'n my phone in the past, too, but this update has SOOOOO many nice little touches, fixes, improvement, features, etc. It's great.

    And the multitasking is actually better, in most respects, than backgrounding while JB'n.

    I jailbroke before, and while it was nice, it was all too sloppy all for me. One day, though, I accidentally updated to 3.1.3 and the jailbroken iPhone was no more - I was back to a regular iPhone. I really like what Apple has to offer rather than what 3rd Party programs offer.

    So, I agree. Great job, Apple. 4.0 looks terrific.

    Apple's implementation is far better than anything I've seen on a jailbroken device...even if these features are three years late

    I really don't understand why people like Backgrounder so much. It was such a drag on performance, and having to micromanage exactly which apps were running when was a huge pain in the arse. Apple's solution is far, far more elegant.

    Years must've gone into R&D for folders to be implemented. And that digital zoom is awesome, it was even cooler when I first used it over a year ago.

    How could you have used it long enough to gauge that the "Battery is awesome"?:rolleyes:

    What do you mean micromanage?

    It added a badge to a backgrounded application. You want it closed? Go to it and close it accordingly. It was as simple as can be.

    The point being that I prefer Apple's system, in that if the app is not actively doing anything, I don't have to worry about it.

    I don't want to have to go quitting applications to free up memory every time I open another app.

    Ya, except they all work smoothly and aren't jury-rigged work arounds that crash your phone on a regular basis.

    95% of the population are not part of the "Home Brew" crew. They do not want to go into DFU and holding the phone on a 90 degree angle to update. They want a phone that is reliable and feature rich, but not at the expense of usability.

    For me this release is the best so far. I have been on the beta since day 1 and this GM is smooth and seems to resolve a lot of legacy issues, in my opinion.

    For what it is worth Apple is not stupid they know what the public wants, however they will not release something until they are 98% sure it will degrade the user experience, period. Maybe that is why they have a Market Cap of a 1/4 trillion dollars and continue to outsell the market.:apple:

    Not all of us want to jailbreak our phones. So this update is very nice. To each his own on what they do with their phone, but I like knowing I have a problem with my phone can take it to an apple store right away and not mess with hoping they do not find out I jailbroked the phone which voids warranty. Im just not that brave and also if something can go bad, it will for me heh.

    where did all of this "jailbreak voids warranty" stuff come from?

    just restore the phone and it's as good as new. they can't tell it was even jailbroken. i understand if you dont want to do it b/c you are novice or dont have time or whatever the reason... but the reason cant be b/c it voids warranty and you couldnt take it to Apple.. b/c yes.. you can.

    Jailbreaking is wonderful if you like all kinds of bugs popping up in your phone and restoring because something really screwed it up.

    Jailbreaking is for those who like things half assed... I too found it sloppy and a mess

    I agree to some extent. I do think a lot of things are sloppy and a mess and some things can mess up your phone and cause it to crash or just operate pretty slow. However, I think jailbreaking an iPhone isn't much different then owning an Android device as far as reliability goes. So if you prefer being able to customize your phone over having a phone that is polished and refined, then jailbreak your phone or get an Android device. I don't think there's much of a difference between the two. The plus side to jailbreaking is that if you get sick of it, you can always revert it back to stock (which is what I did).
