    So far I've got on my 3GS:

    SBSettings
    Five Icon Dock
    Winterboard


    .....all working.


    what are some others I should get? What app is the best for modding SMS backgrounds and bubbles?

    Catagories and Stacks are useful if you know what youre doing :)

    also look into spot bright on cydia

    on a side note...how did you get winterboard working!?! I install it but the icon doesn't show up on spring board :(

    If I could have only one app on a JB iPhone it would be Backgrounder.

    With it I can run Slacker, Pandora, etc and still be able to surf the web, check email or text. It alone is the reason I jailbroke again.

    I jailbroke yesterday and am having a hard time finding reasons to justify it. I've got SBSettings and iRealQuickSMS and am so far happy with them. Visually I can't find anything appealing. Any of the themes I used before are lacking in the icon department and have most likely been abandoned by the developer.

    Is there any good, clean themes that are compatible with 3.0 (themes messages)?

    Make sure that SBSettings hasn't disabled your winterboard icon and hidden it.


    Wait.....so a lot of themes won't work in 3.0?!? Seriously?

    Also whats the best SMS Background Bubble App?

    The themes I tried missed all the apps I already had from the app store. Kinda pointless to have glass orbs theme when half of your apps are normal looking.

    Thinking of restoring and re-breaking when developers start to pick up on 3.0.

    What package sources should I be using? Should I just install all of the sources?

    I was considering jailbreaking my phone but frankly, aside from making some minor cosmetic changes, what's the point? I guess it's the thrill of the hunt that gets people all worked up about doing this.

    It serves the same purpose as Mobile Installer for 2.2.1.

    Use with installous (and Safari DL plugin)! The installous app will let you browse/download/install ipa files. I'm not saying I condone any of this particular kind of behavior....

    Hah. Winterboard just messed up my 3GS. I had to install it to use weathericon, and just uninstalled it, and then uninstalled Winterboard. It wanted to reboot, and then loads the Apple logo and shuts off. No amount of resets fixes it. Time for the restore!

    just install the sources that you need.. thats my opinion. if you want to find what source you need, just try to good the package name and add source at the end and youll find it. good luck.

    For me the single most reason I jailbroke was for Backgrounder and also Five Icon Dock.

    My reason was to install a custom SMS and a custom LOUD email notification.. backgrounder was cool too.

    What do you use as a LOUD email notification? I have the AOL sound of "you've got mail". It's a beating but it sure beats the default sound.

    Thanks

    What's so great about SBSettings? Doesn't it lag the phone more?
