    As the title says, what should we all be downloading to max the use of our new iPhones?

    It is all a matter of personal preference.
    That being said here are a few that I really like:

    SBSettings
    BiteSMS
    AndroidLock (not updated for 4.0 yet)
    Winterboard is popular (Works great on an Iphone 4)
    5 Icon Dock (Gives you 5 icons in the dock instead of 4)

    I don't personally use Winterboard but I know a bunch of people like it so I figured I would list it for the OP.

    Agree with the other posters... it's completely down to personal preference. But so far I've got these working on my ip4:

    BiteSMS
    Winterboard
    Nexus One Live Wallpaper (via Winterboard)
    LockInfo
    SBSettings

    While I agree with most users that posted before, it all come down to your usage and preference, this are in my opinion all the "absolutely" any jailbroken phone should have.

    SBSettings - quick access to all your settings - can't live without it :D
    5 Icon Dock - name says it all, not sure why we can't have 5 icon from stock
    iFile - File Manager
    Backgrounder - real multitasks, if you "need" some app to be running at all time that is still not allow to multitask
    LockInfo
    BiteSMS - Way better SMS app, countless additional features, quick reply, quick compose, and more.

    Now Cool to have:

    3G unrestrictor (paid - $2,99) - Allow to use 3G for WIFI only app (once its update it will allow FaceTime over 3G
    MyWi (paid - $19.99) - 3G hotspot Tethering

    It gets a lot of grief but:

    I can't live without the Intelliscreen alerts

    Also:
    Haptic Pro
    QuickSMS
    MyWi
    SBSettings

    Wish Jobs would allow alerts to alert you more than once. Everything else I could possibly live without.

    I can't believe I left out MyWi. It is so nice when on a road trip to have a wireless hotspot.

    Hi All,

    A couple of questions for you guys:

    1) is AppSync better than pkgbackup?

    2) any good theme that runs with winterboard that emulates android widgets?

    I don't really care about the rest. What I really want is for my lockscreen to have that rotating clock/weather widget. What I have right now is intelliscreen, which sometimes makes unlocking my phone using the power button act weird. and it adds a email icon on my status bar, BETWEEN my % level of battery and battery icon itself, which is annoying. I dont want that email icon at all.

    Thanks
    AE
