    Just released a few hours ago, I got it up and running. It has a disclaimer saying:

    Hope that's informative. :D

    Is this an advisable package to install on the phone at this time. I just PWN my 1st gen and works pretty nice?

    if you're pwned and have a use for it, then yes. i use it to replace the regular preferences app since it has more features (especially turning on/off SSH) and add the regular preferences app to the dock within the app. it's also handy if you want to turn on/off the wifi, edge, bluetooth, or mail accounts easily. there are many more features, but most still do not work with 2.0 yet.

    if most of that doesn't make sense to you, then you probably don't need it. :)

    Yea, I suppose it is more just 2.0 compatable. There isn't even a 3G switch :D Until I get that I have to have both prefs showing. He said he's not done yet though so I can be patient.

    i thought i had an issie with boss prefs just crashing my phone, but i don't think its that as i also installed the macman pacman game at the same time..

    removing the game gave my iphone more stability...

    I just installed this app. I turned ssh off and the whole phone runs 100% faster. I had a bad lag with many functions on the phone, so bad I was thinking of downgrading back to 1.4. Lag is now gone. Anyone else notice this?

    1. Anyone else not having ssh show up on the main screen? I only see email, bluetooth, wifi, edge, the poof, and power buttons and the dock itself. When i go into config I set it show me everything, including ssh but it won't show the toggle therefor i dunno if its on or off.

    2. It also seemed to have taken my contacts button off my home screen buttons and I can only go into the phone button or bossprefs to open up my contacts... weird.

    Go to Poof > Hidden and then tap to make Contacts reappear.

    1. this most likely means you don't have SSH installed. install it via cydia and then it will show up.

    2. go into bossprefs, hide icons (poof), tap on "hidden", and unhide it.

    I just installed the latest version of BossPrefs (the one with the 3G on/off switch) and now I can't connect to the internet. I have 3G and Edge switched on in both Settings and BossPrefs. HELP!
