    I just jail broke my iphone for the first time not more than 25 minutes ago.

    So far I have installed:clippy, cycorder, backgrounder, iblacklist, snapture, spoofapp.

    When I plug into itunes will it backup the jailbroken apps like it would native?

    I tried to find out for myself but didn't really understand clearly....WHAT is the most major difference between Installer and Cydia?? Do I really need both or is Cydia all one really needs for personal/business usage?

    What is the app where it allows us to store different apps into one folder on the spring board?

    I don't think I plan on using I think it's called winterboard....where one can customize his/her home screen with themes and such. I've heard it usually slows the phone considerably more so. What are all your thoughts/experiences??

    Like mentioned above I'm only a half hour into this and so far with the use of clippy I can easily say I'd never go back to a stock iPhone. In saying that, I feel like a totally tool for not converting sooner. Just seems so much better already, I'm excited for it.

    Can anyone recommend any cools app I might like to test drive?


    Thanks to everyone who helps/replies or mingles.

    Thanks guys!!

    no

    Just use Cydia. Installer was great before 2.0 but now Cydia is what most people use and installer has fallen to the wayside.

    I did notice some slowdown but most people who are against jailbreaking blow it out of proportion. From what I've seen a lot of people won't even notice a difference in performance

    Check out pdanet for tethering. SBSettings is also a must have it makes turning on and off things like edge, wifi, 3g, airplane mode, etc. much easier. Download OpenSSH so you can SSH into the phone.

    Jailbroken Apps will NOT sync with iTunes, but your App Store Apps will continue to sync as normal.

    You don't need install, it old, and nothing works on it. Everything is put on Cydia now.

    Categories. Read about it first before installing, there are several problems people have had with it.

    WinterBoard doesn't cause me any lag, but it will do if you have an excessive number of themes active at once.

    Hmm... BossPrefs/SBSettings?

    Search around the forums if you need more detailed info on some of these things, or as always just read the descriptions/instructions on Cydia for each of these apps.

    Have fun and welcome to the other side. :cool:

    wow thanks a lot guys, already you've all given valid tips/ideas or answers in general.

    Here's another question......is swirlymms only a trial version? I'm pretty sure I read it will only last up to 14 days when using the demo.

    I would not want to purchase it for the $8.00 or whatever they are charging, although it does seem like a really cool app.

    So my question is...after the 14 days if you don't purchase the real app, will the demo app not work anymore??

    And if that is the answer can someone recommend a free MMS app from Cydia??


    **I really can't believe I waited this long to do this, I've had it since day 1**

    I feel like such a fool, it's so much better this way, holy crap!!

    You need to install OpenSSH and access your iPhone, navigate to /root/Applications and delete the "Installer.app" folder I believe. Search MacRumors/Google for full instructions on how to use OpenSSH and what program you'll need for your computer in order to access your iPhone.

    Also, check your PM's.
