    Playing around with 4.0 GM (decided to take the plunge since I expect a jailbreak soon and I trust that the Dev Team's new unlock will be better than blacksn0w anyway). This of course means I've lost my jailbreak for the time being.

    So what do I miss most? Not surprisingly, SB Settings. The ability to toggle Bluetooth, brightness, and WiFi without going into settings each time is worth more than I imagined. If you think you love SB Settings now, try going without it for a day. Other than that, it's really minor tweaks I miss, especially Cyntact. And missing features like AVRCP skip/repeat support.

    What have I been surprised not to miss? Backgrounder, mainly. I think once WunderRadio and NAVIGON are updated to take advantage of the new APIs I will be able to dispense with it altogether.

    Reasons I will Still Jailbreak 4.0:

    1. SB Settings
    2. Full AVRCP support
    3. Cyntact
    4. iFile/Safari Download Manager
    5. Minor Tweaks (Custom carrier logos, renaming apps, etc)

    What's your experience?

    I would think MyWi would be a biggie to lose.

    Yes, if I tethered it would be. But I've really only tethered a couple of times just to try it out. I have WiFi at home and at work, and I don't carry my Laptop on the road much.

    I still cant wrap my head around why Apple hasn't implemented a sbsetting's like page with all the controls. They put so much effort into building a better battery for the iPhone, but cant make it convenient to turn functions on and off.

    Yes, Music Controls added full AVRCP support about a month ago. Works great.

    JB is already available - albeit very buggy...

    David Ashman is working on a version for 4 of Lockinfo.... As soon as its working I'm going to put my main 3GS onto 4....

    I'll miss the haptic vibration - thats the only thing I can think of that will probably not get adapted for 4

    Because these are settings, not functions. You are not supposed to change them quite often. You might do so, but most of the people don't.
