    I know this is not the "official" jailbreaking forum but this thread is aimed for the non-jailbreakers out there... I've been noticing more and more cool apps appearing on installer and cydia for the latest firmwares. Anyone going to be first time jailbreakers?

    Why not??? My other iPhone's were, I'm seeing so many cool apps now I'm going to do my 3g now. It's pretty safe if you know what you are doing. Opens up tons of new stuff for the iPhone.

    Warranty? Having to unjailbreak if there is a problem or everytime a new update comes along?

    True, but it's oh so worth it. If there ever was a issue all you do is simply restore and you are good to go into any Apple store. They would never know.

    I would probably mess everything up.

    I already switched back. I liked it, but I'm already perfectly fine with the way it is already. I probably didn't find any of the good apps for jailbreaking though.

    Not to make you nervous but I have yet to have Installer crash a single time.

    Wow, seems like someone was a bit nervous to have it on there eh?

    I haven't jailbroken...I have thought about it, but I am not sure what functionality is out there for a jailbroken phone that I am missing.

    Out of curioisity, do you lose any functionality? Can you still use all the "normal" features (app store, usage, etc) on a jailbroken phone?

    Not nervous, I think something happened while jailbreaking. I did a fresh restore and did it again and now installer works fine.

    Now installer is acting weird. It isn't crashing, but if I select an item from the most popular list on the featured page, it wont show up anymore, it just brings it to the search with the name in the search bar and nothing is there. Any ideas?

    EDIT- Never mind, now installer crashes anytime I search for something.
    EDIT- Now I refreshed my sources and everything works again /sigh

    I jailbroke my original iPod touch before the App Store was even known to exist. But now that I have my iPhone 3G, I don't really see the need to. Sure I'd love a video recorder app and to change my theme but it's just small features I wouldn't use all that much.

    i jailbroke my 3g, love the customizabilities. But things can get confusing. I have found though that overrall performance at times can chug a little, probably due to the amount of crap of loaded onto it. Had an issue with Idownloader and video playback. Im hopeing once those controller adapters come out for this that the nes will be adapted to use it and play in widescreen. So far love my iphone and as being a first time poster and apple product owner things are fairly smooth. Did notice that my signal sometimes is weird and will drop altogether for a min which never occured with the normal software suite. Regardless things only get better, for the most part.

    There is more out there than you actually think. More and more stuff keeps popping up. And it seems Cydia has become a bit more popular over the Installer app.

    hey I want to jailbreak my 3g but I'm having big problems. 1. It says sumthing about me needing a .net framework and I tried doing it a bunch of times and redownloafing quickpwn and the only thing I got was a virus on my computer and I'm really sad lol I don't think I'm capable of jailbreaking it without messing up my computer or my iPhone

    Hm.
    Maybe. I'm just paranoid of bricking my phone after seeing it happen to a lot of other people with the first gen iPhone.

    I've never had a single issue with jailbreaking. And I've done a lot of them. Just make sure you know what you are doing and it should be fine.

    If there's one really great app that Apple would never allow in the App Store and I'd use daily, then I certainly would.

    I've been thinking about jailbreaking. Couple of questions:

    1) So how does one find out exactly "what you are doing"?

    2) Any recommended items for a jailbroken 3G that aren't necessarily available thru the App Store (other than themes)?

    Thanks,
