    No, SBSettings has not been replaced by anything in iOS5. We have drop down notifications, but you can't actually modify settings like wifi or tethering or anything.

    With mywi no longer needed ,
    and having never used the unlock
    it's not worth the security risk and hassles to jailbreak anymore.

    also forgot to mention, springtomoize is pretty handy too, I love being able to turn backgrounding off and controlling what gets run in the background myself.

    also Ifile is nice!

    IF they can produce a stable JB that preserves baseband on iOS 5 (without issues like the one signal bar/ultrasn0w fix on 4.3.3) and IF iOS 5 doesn't majorly slow things down on the iPhone 4, then yes, I'll upgrade and JB to get bite, SBSettings, and FolderEnhancer.

    But I'll keep running 4.2.1 pretty happily if that doesn't come to pass. There's not much on 5 that's compelling to me, and NOTHING on it is compelling enough to run it stock.

    Winterboard along with a custom theme. And of course SBSettings

    Would be interesting to see what the jailbreaks and theme creators can do with the new lockscreen, can't wait to get my hands on iOS 5

    Why is mywi no longer needed?

    That's the main reason I jailbreak my iPhone.

    MyWi is no longer needed if you are using a provider that allows you to access the Personal Hotspot feature on your iPhone 4.

    Not all cell phone providers allow the Personal Hotspot features, some carriers require you to have a specific plan before you can use it.

    If you have a 3GS then Personal Hotspot is disabled and your only option is MyWi or the other Wifi tethering jailbreaks out there.

    mywi

    mywi won't be needed the days carriers stop thinking its okay to charge for smartphone data and then additionally to use the data. If i pay for 2 gb of data for my iPhone, i should be able to use it with my iPad.

    Probably not. I have two main reasons my phone is jailbroken, better notifications and QuickReply. All of the other stuff is just icing on the cake that I can live without. Though even that iOS 5 doesn't include quick reply I still probably won't jailbreak it.

    Why would you need to do that? It implies you never paid for them, to be honest.
