Jailbreaking? What's that???

I've noticed that my phone seems to be more unstable after the jailbreak. The springboard (homescreen) reloads a ton, the phone freezes a lot, and it is constantly hot. I only added a few things to the phone, tried out a lot but deleted most.
here for answers to all things jailbreaking. You will find what you are looking for I'm sure.

Make it mine - allows you to edit your carrier text to what ever you'd like
There is a app that alerts you of missed calls/sms/emails on the top of of the screen... name of it is slipping my mind at the moment. Later when I have more time I will fill you on more stuff out there by creating a thread in the jailbreak section. Have to get back to work now.

OK BadAsh I'm in!
Me and my partner have 2 iphones - 1 2G and a new 3G.
For reasons primarily of hating on the AT&T - as well to a lesser degree, getting and using cool new apps Apple doesn't see fit to approve, I'm ready to JB em both.
I'm sure I will brick at least one of these phones in my attempts to get this done...please stay tuned for panicked questions
Question #1 - Can I can still sync locally with iTunes AND with my .me server after JBing?
Question #2 - Can I update applications through the app store after JBing?
That's it for now...taking a deep breath and jumping in!

Besides Cycorder, SwirlyMMS (the only real MMS application for iPhone), and iBlacklist (call manager for filtering unwanted calls directly to your voicemessage), are the the mains reasons I don't leave Jailbreaking..... And I think it will take a long time before Apple allows this applications on AppStore...

I've done it twice...
Since you can undo it with a simple reset, it's not really as much of a risk (:
The thing is, I've found that I don't really use any jailbroken apps, so I'm kinda just waiting for fring...
Although I really liked it, winterboard made everything really slow for me x.x

I was thinking that I would never jailbreak my iPhone 3G, but the QuickPwn 2.1 came out, and I was kinda bored, so...
The main programs I like are Winterboard and Intelliscreen. With Winterboard, I love having my wallpaper in the background behind the apps. Without that, you hardly see your wallpaper.
With Intelliscreen, you do have to pay either $4.99 or $19.99 if you like it past the 10 day trial, but it's an awesome app. Shows you your upcoming calendar events, e-mails, weather, and news stories without unlocking your phone. Not necessary, but really neat anyway.
I'd like Cycorder more if I could figure out how to transfer the vids to my computer easily. Without that ability, it's kinda useless to me.
One other program I like is Folders. It allows you to put apps into folders to organize your home screens a bit. I have the ones I use most out in the open, and all the apps that I only use occasionally neatly stowed away in folders. I can find the apps without flipping through 8 pages of junk.
Overall, I'm glad I decided to give it a try.

I just use FTP to get movies (free). I use Fugu but any FTP program should work for any platform. Get OpenSSH through Cydia on your iPhone, and then look in your wireless prefs to get the iPhone's IP address. Go to it with SSH and use username: root and password: alpine, and then go to
on your iPhone. Your Cycorder videos should be there. Just drag to the desktop or however your FTP program downloads from remote sites.
