    its like a completely new phone once i JB..

    1) use background apps (backgrounder)
    2) fast switch wifi, 3G, brightness, etc (sbsettings)
    3) Mail, weather, calendar, SMS on Lockscreen (Lockinfo)
    4) easy file transfer (ifile)
    5) DOWNLOAD ! files, pics, videos from safari (Safari download plug-in)
    6) Eyecandy (winterboard)
    7) User-friendly (rotation inhibitor, 5 icon dock, 5 column springboard, iRealquickSMS, Flashlight)
    8) Video (cycorder)
    9) Cool stuff (VoIPover3G, Iblacklist, Appsync):p

    and

    10) NO battery issues.. (jailbreak with a clean/new iphone setting.):cool:

    I agree with all that from the above post, though i don't use all those features. But yeah if you think your iPhone is like a mini-computer before a jailbreak, its even more so afterward. Just today i realized that with the cydia program iFile you can send attachments with emails! this is the kind of feature that is impossible on a stock iPhone. Just about anything you've ever wished your stock phone could do is possible after a jailbreak. Aside from people worrying about the warrenty void, I find it harder to think of reasons NOT to jailbreak.

    Whats the use with ifile? Accessing your files via SSH is far easier.

    Whats eyecandy?

    iFile lets you do stuff right from your phone, like play movies downloaded with the Safari downloads plug-in, and as I posted, attaching files to emails while away from your computer. Besides its nice to have root file access on the device you spent so much for. As for eyecandy, have you seen a themed iPhone?? Some of them are real slick, they are like candy... for your eyes.

    My two important and one un-important issues that keep me jailbroken:

    1. I text a lot. Like 5000 each month worth :) It drives me crazy to keep opening and shutting the text app. So quick reply texting (in the form of Tlert) is the most important thing to me.

    2. Lock screen information (ie Intelliscreen or Lockinfo). I'm dependant on that now.

    3. And unimportant, but still enjoyable: Customizable icons and wallpaper :D

    yeah there are instances where you can download formats that aren't supported by the iPod media player, so there are apps like mplayer in cydia that play a wide range of formats, the safari plugin + ifile + mplayer lets you play a lot of content that the stock phone would never be able to handle. I don't use it often, but having it makes me feel like I have a lot more versatility.

    Can anyone who uses lockinfo tell me how much it slows down the iphone at all? I'm on an original iphone right now and I'm worried about making it lag if I add too much junk onto it.

    That is correct! You can download it right from Cydia, or you can d/l the Rock App and d/l Tlert from there :)
