i have thought about redsn0w but was worried about being tethered. I know all of the rebooting my phone did on limera1n this would cause an issue. Any ideas ? Oh and when my phone needs to reboot I know I have to connect it to a computer when its tethered How does this work, like a restore?

Glitches with jailbreak?!
Does anyone know of/or experienced the glitch I have had since jailbreak using redsn0w.
After jailbreak etc, my iphone will require restarting the springboard every time I receive a SMS message.
I have re-booted (tethered) but still this seems to happen!
I am considering just using the phone as it was intended as I have heard other instances of the phone slowing down or just not being as responsive.
Does anyone really think that jailbreaking is worth it, as I am yet to find software in Cydia that really makes it worth doing? I understand that some people like to have pretty icons and maybe the SBSettings is useful sometimes but is it really worth it as it is quite capable of doing everything without jailbreak. I mean I can access the iphone from my mac, like a flash drive (using app store software).
I have, since restoring the iphone, found that most of the software obtainable after jailbreak is in one way or another available from app store.
The only real things I have seen worth having are for developers who need to gain access to the OS root for development reasons.
Winterboard is not really worth jailbreaking for (novelty wears off), installous (same as winterboard), and i can make ringtones with app store software (ringtones)......
I am yet to see the advantage......i know people will say "well dont jailbreak then mate, its your choice!!"
Yes i know that, but can anyone explain to me the real benefit to jailbreaking!!!
The only one reason i can see for jailbreaking a perfectly working iphone is so that sim-locked phones can be unlocked to any network.
Any other reasons i would be interested to know about, so please can someone advise me on why i should jailbreak my iphone.
Sorry for the long post!!!
iPhone 3GS(16Gb) iOS 4.2.1
Unlocked to any network (BB-05.15.04)

I have not experienced your glitch, however do have some thoughts on wether it is worth jailbreaking or not. As the software updates include more and more there is less and less reason to really jailbreak. Originally there were lots of reasons to but today the only JB apps I have and the only reason I still jailbreak is for 1.) iblacklist 2.) quicksms 3.)mifi 4.) the app to get FaceTime on 3G. Without those 4 I would have no reason to. If an app like iblacklist came to the app store I would unjailbreak and just live without the others. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the response.
Im quite suprised that i wasnt attacked more than that by the jailbreak vs apple community, for being pro apple or something.
Im not sure but having just looked on itunes i found an app called blacklist.
Dont know if any good to ya but looks like it blacklists various known numbers and you can add ones.
Vietalogy.....why didnt you stick a couple of links up for me?????
I dont know where these posts are!
I am jailbroken with an iphone 4 on 4.2. I have not have that problem with restarting my springboard after every text message. Are you using a jailbreak SMS app? If you are remove it via cydia. I have not found one that works with 4.2 yet. I feel the value in jailbreaking is saving time with SB settings and calendar lock (lock info does not support 4.2). Also mywi and my3g is so worth jailbreaking.

mdpatsfan, nah not jailbreak sms....just standard sms.
I am seriously finding that my iphone is much quicker and very much more responsive than when it was jailbroken last week.
Thanks for the pointers but I think its actually not worth the trouble and like Thepher said in his/her post "Originally there were lots of reasons to".
So on that note im gonna take the stay original road......the phone works better!
