    Is it any use any more? Is anyone still developing apps for jailbroken phones or have they all switched to the app store development or stopped entirely?

    So is it possible to Jailbreak, download the free apps you want, and then restore and transfer to the phone?

    is there anything else? the themes are nice. i've got one i like a lot on my iPod Touch. i don't think i'll be stealing apps. i pretty much gave up on pirating software a while ago.

    so, the things that it seems like you get through jailbreaking now:
    - themes
    - able to pirate apps
    - tethering (i've got my work Blackberry for that if i need it)

    in the end, all i got out of jailbreaking was various games like solitaire and yahtzee. if they now have decent versions of those in the app store, i'll prolly just get those instead.

    How the fuck do you get free apps? Just download them? I'm unlocked/jailbroken on 2.1 with a 2G iPhone.

    I'm on 2.1 Jailbroken, seems kinda slow/laggy. Only reason I have it jailbroken is to have theme, (my own wallpaper really). I'm gonna remove the themes, and just have my own wallpaper see if that fixes it. I do have 100+ apps, but I don't really use any of them, so I don't have any installed. My fav games were bomberman and bejeweled.
