    I have been thinking about jailbreaking just for video recording, so it is helpful to see other reasons that may make me take the plunge sooner.

    Thanks for the post.

    All good programs.

    I also love QuickGold and the ability to play flash video.

    My god.

    We don't need separate threads for every person's reasons for jail-breaking or not.

    What's wrong with using the other 2 threads?

    It is because people are illiterate or just stupid to notice all the other posts, or the "search" function so we have 400 threads on "Should I get the iPhone now?" And threads like this. This board would have 30 less pages of ******** if people started using 'search' and replying on the same thread, than posting a new one.

    And the fact people like the attention so people reply to THEIR post.

    But in all seriousness, this section has 460 pages, half of them are repeats of the same topics over and over again.

    My reason is because I love my 5 icon transparent/reflective dock.
    the stock dock looks cheap

    This is the third one! I started the first one... then someone made a counter thread, and now you just made a third one. I'm glad you like your iPhone jailbroken... I'm happy for you. You're getting your money's worth. Personally, I'm happy with mine as well. I don't have to jailbreak to enjoy my iPhone.

    There are 10 items from this forum that appear in the sidebar on the iPhone page.

    When 3 are taken up by the same topic, it really limits what else is shown there and it's annoying.

    Please tell me how to fix that with my clicker.

    Please, I'm willing to learn.

    I would love to jailbreak but i updated to 2.2.1 and the baseband upgraded to 2.30 so i guess I wont be able to jailbreak anytime soon. Is there anyway besides the sim card to jailbreak or am I just screwed on ever getting the chance the jailbreak again?

    You can jailbreak it, you can't unlock it. More info at: http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

    ive seen that downgrading from 2.2.1 to 2.2 but it does not downgrade the baseband 2.30 to 2.28. Even though the baseband doesnt downgrade would it still be able to jailbreak?

    Jeez, not this question again. No one learns on their own anymore.

    I will type slowly

    JB is not the same as unlocking.

    All the wanna be moderators in this thread need to lighten up. You are not the macrumors police.

    I had not seen the other threads. I was not thinking about jailbreaking my phone, but I saw this thread on the main page and clicked on it. I am glad I did as I learned about more apps that make it more likely I will jailbreak. So I am grateful for this thread.

    If you have a problem with a post or thread, report it. Otherwise ignore it.

    The only thing that happens when you post in threads like this is you make yourself look like a jerk. You also keep the thread near the top of the first page. If you ignore it, it is likely to disappear quicker, so you are really just making it worse for yourself since these threads seems to bother you oh so much. Find something better to do with your time.

    I hope you're not taking them seriously and getting genuinely upset with the "this has already been posted" crowd. Most are just trolls trying to elicit a response.

    If they are genuinely pissed that someone posted a repetitive thread then they are probably like 12 years old and this is the most important thing in their lives right now. Let it ride.

    Jailbreaking is amazing:p I had Pandora running in the background with backgrounder (recently restored and haven't put any music), then I ran Trapster. Pandora was playing the music in the background perfectly and Trapster was letting me know about the police,speed cameras,red cameras,etc.

    It worked fluently and didn't have a crash or anything:D It was awesome :cool:

    I also love Live Clock and Weather Icon. I now have the real time and real weather on my icons instead of the generic icon that always point to three o'clock and show a sunny, 70-something degrees.

    Of course it won't stop people who really wanna do it. People break laws... it's what they do. Not everyone of course, but they do. People do a lot worse things than jailbreak a phone.

    Don't mix "legal" with "moral".
