3.0 vs Jailbreaking
My iPhone 3g 16gig is not jailbroken.
When I bought it I was doing MUCH research on it but while doing so, the whole 3.0 preview came out.
The following was the reason I wanted to jailbreak.
- Turn-by-turn GPS.
- Video recording.
Now, we know that TbT GPS will be avaiable along with MMS, not 100% sure on Video recording but it looks like it's pretty much official (maybe I missed it).
So, what will be the advantages of jailbreaking 3.0?
P.S. : I know it's a just a rumor but looks like a new iPhone is due sometime in the summer which I know I'll get my hands on for sure. That also effects my decision as well.

I choose both
and already have both. Although I am kinda thinking about downgrading to 2.2.1 jailbroken because I am so terribly bored of the black background. BTW if you update your carrier file with a hacked one you can get tethering to work. voila no need for pdanet.

I don't know if I want to jailbreak anymore after 3.0 comes out. The update is really going to be good and my iPhone runs a little bit slower after jailbreaking it. The only reason to jailbreak, for me, after 3.0 is released is for Backgrounder and possibly video recording. Other than that, I don't think I will jailbreak 3.0.

I have beta 3.0 beta 4 jailbroken, and am loving it...it takes only something like GriP or Weathericon to justify it, but once official 3.0 is out, and all the jb stuff works, there will be plenty more reasons to do it (sbssettings, qik, etc)

So what are the odds of JB on 3.0? Have any of you developers done any testing on the 3.0 beta yet? I tend to agree with Bad Ash. OTOH...tethering is an important tool for me. I seldom use it, but it has saved a couple of presentations when others have planned poorly for Internet access or a Wifi system has gone down at an inopportune time.

The customization alone is enough to get me to jailbreak (Winterboard themes and the like).
The exclusive apps that offer amazing functionality is enough to get me to jailbreak (dTunes is a perfect example).
The ability to layout my device how I see fit is enough to get me to jailbreak (Categories and Stack FTW!)
But the kicker, the absolute non-negotiable feature I want is to be able to access the file system. Until Apple allows me to SSH into my device, access a mobile Terminal, or gives me a File Viewer, my handset will always be jailbroken.

As for some of the limitations that were set for apps like SlingPlayer - I can understand why AT&T put their foot down but at the same time like I said a while back, they also did it to put their own SlingPlayer like app out there. When I wrote that many people felt I was crazy... am I still crazy now???
