This is why I think jailbreaking should brick phones. 1) It is uselss. 2) It allows for the piracy of apps, piracy does nothing to help developers like me who work hard to make apps, then have people steal them. F the pirates.

Useless. Really?! Useless! I wont even justify an argument here cause even the staunchest of "apple rights management supporters" would just laugh at that!
"It allows for the piracy of apps" Yes, that is true (and someone who just pirates apps and only pirates apps is meanie nerf herder!) ......... but booze allows for DUI's, the internet allows for pedophiles to prey on children, and internet forums allow imbeciles to spout ignorance (and drunkards to rebuttal !). Boooo, hiiiisssssss, shut off automobiles and the internets!
I could go on, but all you gave me was "it's dumb and only thieves use it" so that is all i have to work/talk/deal with at the moment.
Man, if you don't like jailbreaking, that is a "you problem". This is an iphone/ipad/itouch forum and all that encompass it is discussed (even tipb employs Allyson, a jailbreak writer, do you then have issues with tipb) and/or try and leave your (biased) politics at the log in screen.

I have issues with jailbreaking. Apple never intended the phone to be side loaded with apps and what not. It is Apples device, they should be able to do what they want with it. If you want piracy, side loading and crap, go get a damn droid and quit *****ing about how the iPhone is locked down.

Apple never intended? AT&T never intended? Who cares? We bought the phone. It's ours. It has on OS on it. We should be able to install what we want just like we've been able to do with just about every other smartphone.
Here's the thing. We know the iphone can be a wifi hotspot. MyWi does this. So why doesn't AT&T or Apple get their crap together and make this happen? Because they choose not to.
We know the iphone can really multitask aside what they're doing now. Backgrounder does this. So why doesn't Apple allow it to happen?
Controls like sbsettings can be added allowing settings to be adjusted easily. So why doesn't apple add this simple function?
If apple would allow any apps to be added in their little store, then i wouldn't jailbreak. This aspect of owning an iphone will always suck.

I'll jailbreak for:
Yourtube (or something like it)
I'm anticipating how netflix will work. If they won't allow you to cache your flix, then I'm sure there will be an app to allow you to keep them on your phone.
Reason being... I don't have very good cell reception where I live. I would like the ability to download my flix and watch them when I'm out of cell reception. I also would like to be able to cache maps. It drives my crazy when I'm traveling through the hills and can't see my map. Grr!

"Apple never intended", really, that is your newest defense? Apple never intended for antenna issues, white cases cracking and drunk stooges to cause early reveals! Who care about "intended" anyway. *insert deity of choice here* didn't intended for chocolate covered bacon but that shizz is the awesome.
"It is Apples device..." Really, I didn't see Sir Jobs or the Woz (who has a jailbroken iPhone by the way) pay the 3 bills plus for that portable computer system that happens to make phones calls I now possess. I bought that sexy beast with my soft earned cash and if I wanna use it stock, jailbreak it, use it as a hockey puck, eat it, or make sweet, sweet, digital love to it then I sure as hell will cause guess what, it's not illegal do any of those things (well, maybe the sweet digital love part, but only in Wyoming and North Dakota) Ya, the piracy thing is illegal and karmicly wrong, and I do not condone that at all, but you do understand that here is more to jailbreaking than piracy right? You do understand that jailbreaking, even if you don't do it or like it, drives apple to make changes and push along ideas/apps/features on their end that otherwise would have never come to fruition? You know these things right? Dude (or Missy) you are not arguing/disagreeing/disregarding something without knowing anything about it are you? Please tell me you are not "that guy/girl"?
So this doesn't start to completely hijack the thread:
I miss SBSettings soo much.
Cydia itself (fun to peek at the stuff epople create even if I don't use it)
Backgrounder (better multitasking)
Bitesms (quick reply please)

I have yet to figure out the necessity for tethering. Are we tethered to the interwebz so much so that we can't go a few hours until we get home or find a wifi hotspot? Plus, 3G is slow as balls anyway. What's the point?

SBSettings is my most missed though. The ability toggle everything on and off in an instant got so essential to me. I listen to a ton of baseball and push notifications of scoring by my team tends to come sooner than the MLB app streams it. If I forget to turn off push notifications before a game (which I do without SBSettings) It sucks to see that notification pop up just before a critical play when you are listening to a tight game. And don't even get me started on turning bluetooth on and off, could it be buried any deeper, I think I saw Hoffa last time i toggled it on.
