    O.K. So i'm going to join the Darkside, and i've been playing around with my wife's 3GS for about a month now. I'm convinced that jailbreaking will open up the full potential of the iPhone4 i'm getting, but i would like to know about the basic apps i should have to start off with, as a newbie with a jailbroken iPhone4. I've always loved the themes for BB, and i consider myself a Sith apprentice.

    Activator - lets you make changes to buttons to do certain commands. Like double tap homescreen to bring up _____ or tap status bar to bring up ________.
    Backgrounder - This is the more advanced version of multi-tasking. This is what we all used before 4.0 came out. But you have many more settings options

    BiteSMS - a TEXT app thats lets you text from the lockscreen or while your inside a app without even having to minimize the app and you can call from the bitesms text too

    CallTell - Announces the name of the person calling you than your ringtone plays. Also reads texts too

    Fake Carrier - Lets you change your carrier name to whatever you would like

    Five Icon Dock and Five Column Springboard - No explanation needed

    Flashlight in Cydia - automatically brings your phone screen to a white brightest setting, much better than the app store flashlights

    LockInfo - Not free - Customize your Lockscreen to have weather, sms, calendar or anything else like that

    MXTube - Lets you download high quality you tube videos with ease

    NoSpot - Prevents spotlight from opening

    SBsettings - Gives you a swipe to open all toggles (anything in settings, you can have as a toggle like, wifi, 3g, bluetooth, etc)

    Speaking Iphone - I love this one. Speaks in a mans voice, you have a new text message or text message sent, etc

    Switcher plus - Brings tast switcher to lockscreen, so all calls, etc can be made by lockscreen

    WeatherIcon - Gives you a temp next to your battery on status bar also gives you an option for a weather image, and it updates. Also can you a temp and image on your weather app too

    XGPS - A free voice directions GPS, even tells you on the same screen how many miles to next exit and total miles left. Far superior than the native maps app.

    Gridlock is great if you use pictures of people or cool cars or whatever as backgrounds. It allows you to place the icons anywhere you want which in turn allows you to not hide your wallpaper.

    Infinifolders is a must have. I tried FolderEnhancer and thought it was second rate compared to Infinifolders.

    LockInfo is for sure a must.

    Winterboard is needed for any theme so might as well get that.

    CyDelete to delete cydia apps the same way as deleting regular app store apps.

    close button widget - replaces broken home button for sbsettings

    tappable sliders - the BEST tap to unlock out of all of them, more responsive

    erase contacts - del all contacts

    cycorder video recorder for 2/3g

    volume boost 3.12 somewhat helps the 2g volume issue.

    It all depends on the usefulness of the app. MyWi is a $20 app I believe, and it is well worth it. Some apps that smply adjust the way the springboard works are usually between $1 and $5. Many items in the Cydia listings are free too.

    ok does anyone know how to get the weather to show up on the phone screen? like rain drops and clouds or snow flakes? and how do you get the carrier logo like rogers or at&t at the top left like some people have? it looks really cool.

    Status bar notifications: I think there is one simply called StatusBarNotifier or StatusBarNotifictions. Afaik it works with 4.1. No cydia for 4.2 yet so I cannot say either way for that yet

    For the weather information, search cydia for WeatherIcon. It is missing 1 feature on the iPad, but everything else 4.1 and below it great.

    For carrier logo changes, search Cydia for "carrier logo", many need WinterBoard, so make sure you download that too. For carrier name change i use FakeCarrier

    Most Cydia apps are free. At least the ones I named except LockInfo, etc. Nobody would be going to the trouble of jailbreaking if everything cost $. We would all be broke. Just look in Cydia and scroll around you'll see. Its all easy, everything, and really nobody needs a tutorial on how to do stuff if you can read. Just jailbreak, load Cydia and have fun modding your phone.

    Sharky,

    I was having the same problem with weathericon, Farbod told me to change my status in Cydia from User to Developer then search for libstatusbar, worked like a charm.
