I have been Jailbreaking since I got my iPhone 3G. I patiently await for the hackers to jailbreak the latest update. It’s always been for two reasons: to customize the look of my iPhone, and the jailbroken apps that help me do things quicker.
You see, I’m one of those mac guys who is fanatical about Quicksilver. I do so many things with Quicksilver. It’s all the everyday little things that you have to do, I can do them quicker with a few keystrokes.
I’m the same way with my iPhone. I jailbroke it up to 4.0 the other day. I’m still waiting for iRealQuickSMS to update; I loved that app. It gave me the ability to send and receive txt messages on my lockscreen. Huge time saver.
What I still use for looks: Five Icon Dock
Five Icon Springboard
Categories and Categories SB (in addition to the new folders)
For speed, I use qtweeter and Snappy.
Snappy is awesome, it allows you to use your camera while you use any other app. You can even use your camera from the lockscreen. It’s the coolest jailbroken app I have seen in a long time. So much better than before. It seems the regular camera app included with the iPhone takes way too long to open. It’s very frustrating to miss a photo opportunity.
Those are the reasons I’m still jailbreaking. It does seem that Apple may eventually have everything I want, and then I won’t have to hack it up. We’ll see…
