  • Cydias not going anywhere...even if they add some of the stuff jailbreak offers I will still use it
  • Recorded with an iPhone 4. ;)
  • Lol at the thing th tblows up in the background
  • Give me better notifications and the ability to turn off some standards that I don't use or want and I'd never jailbreak again.
    I actually prefer my phone to be stock, but that notification system just makes me want to punch a baby.
  • rage face
    please it is thanks to the jailbreak community there is really innovative in the apps/tweaks sections.. :)
  • Please woman, do your job. And give me new jailbreak apps, when people asked for it. Be on standby.... jay freeman mabye fire her?
  • If it wasn't for Cydia I wouldn't even have an iPhone; hence, having an iPhone without Cydia is the same as buying a BMW without Leather Seats.
  • leather seats - bah. more like without sports suspension and a manual.
  • I would have thought that Saurik would be clean cut and blingy by now. Cydia is still a main player in the iDevice world. I would have expected him to capitalize on some of it. He's a man of principal.
