    No problems using redsnow, went smooth. Ohhhh how nice is it to have SBSettings back, the cool thing is it's integrated into the notification center. There's a ton you can do with it now. I played with it for like an half hour last night just trying different things and settings. Sweet having it run on the lockscreen and access everything from right there :D

    Was going to install FolderEnhancer but it says it won't be ready for iOS 5 for another week or two. As I hate how Apple did their "folders", don't know what putz there came up with that dumb solution. I mean 12 apps in a folder, com'on. I have like 60 games and other apps for biz and other stuff. I used categories before, but FE I can make a games folder, then folders inside that folder for the various games (action, puzzles, shooter etc). Why could Apple not come up with that simple and efficient system?

    If I recall from 2 years ago, it was the old bootram. Battery life seems fine, better than before. I don't know what happened but with iOS 5 something kept hanging in the background when apps were frozen in the task bar to use. If I constantly closed them it was fine, but still can't fig out what was causing the draining as icloud, locations etc were all off. After I jailbroke I notice no difference now when apps are in the task bar, go figure lol.

    There's still some stuff that's being updated though that can't be used with iOS 5 yet on JB, if you search there's a list of apps that work. All I really care about though for the moment was SBSettings, so nice to have back and it's integrated into notifications.
