    ... If Apple isn't paying attention to these things, they'd better wake Steve up out of his coma so HE can make sure they hear. Either way, we (customers) win... if Apple delivers it or not.
    I'd find it hard to believe that Steve Jobs (and Apple) doesn't secretly enjoy seeing the things being done on Jailbroken iPhones. It only gives them more ideas of where to go (or where not to go) next, and how to better develop (or not bother with) their own versions of jailbreak apps.

    Sure, Apple has a "We know what's best" attitude... but the thing is, they're usually right in the end, IMO.

    Like I've said here before, however... Apple has a LOT more on it's plate than other companies who only focus on their phones. Not an excuse, perhaps, but still...

    I have faith that they'll deliver... they always do (eventually).

    I am jailbroken. I can't help but hack my technology. It's an addiction.

    Apple has no carrier (yet) in China, so they sell officially unlocked iPhones in Taiwan and Hong Kong. They're fairly Sun Tzu, so parts of Jailbreak might appeal to them, especially if it lets casual users keep a clean experience and expert users get their hands dirty...

    Maybe so... too bad Apple squandered an opportunity to build our ancticipation for real features at the last Macworld. I've gotten tired of speculating when Apple will get cedrtain things right though. I have succeeded in reaching full function on the things I need. My enthusiasm for 3.x is also tempered by knowing I will have to wait for it since Apple will invariably do something to try and prevent further jailbreaking... which for me means that it will minimally be a waiting period... and at worst become a decision of fixing myself at a point in time so I don't lose what Apple doesn't seem to want me to have -- a fully functional and usable Smart Phone. :-\

    OK subtract me from the pure list and add me to the hacked list. Gotta be able to run Pandora in the background.

    Is your iPhone jailbroken or not or what is jailbroken and you restored it. And why did you not like it jailbroken?

    My iPhone is jailbroken. I have noticed Jailbreaking the iPhone and installing Winterboard from Cydia has slowed my iPhone down noticeably.

    Yes that is why I restored mine I did not like how slow it ran.

    Yea but Cydia offers a lot to the iPhone. Especially Themes and such.

    If 3.0 does not add everything I need I may jailbreak.

    I go back and forth for the very reason that Kickstar mentioned.

    3.0 will not allow downloading of themes.

    I jailbroke once mainly so I could just try it out. I liked having themes and tweaking settings with sbsettings. I restored it when I had a hardware issue and needed to take my iPhone to the Apple store.

    I am with you. I liked it jailbroken though but it slowed it down and it aggravated me so I didn't jailbreak the one I got when I exchanged it. I have thought about doing it again I just dont feel like having to set everything up again. haha

    Yeah...I had mine jailbroken for a while. So did the g/f.

    We had our 1st gens jailbroken and dealt with the lag (which didn't seem to be as bad with installer and summerboard as it is with cydia and winterboard now). The main reason there was it allowed you to have multiple pages, and download games and apps, which at the time you couldn't do.

    When Apple started allowing you to rearrange things, and the app store came out, the benefits no longer outweighed the annoyances for me. We jailbroke our 3Gs for a while and the lag was terrible, so we restored them.

    The only thing I wish apple would let you do is change the wallpaper on your home screen, not just the lock screen.

    I jailbroke to use yellowsnow to unlock my iPhone. I will probably wait to go to 3.0 until a unlock is available.

    That was my main reason for a long time. I could live without after 2.0, but went back once, and the lag killed me.

    After 3.0, I don't think I'll see a need ever again

    Jailbroken, with no slowdowns. Probably worth noting that I'm very selective about the jailbreak apps I install, and Winterboard isn't one of them.
