    well of course I'm going to suggest my theme: its called cia lockdown, look in my sig for download or add the repo "openrepo.org/repo"

    as for apps, get iphysics, all of the emulators (theres nes, snes, gba, sega genesis, psx available, as well as some other cool emulators that I cant remember)

    definitely install community sources from installer, it will really help you find more cool stuff.

    quasi lojack if youre afraid of your ipod getting stolen

    pockettouch (iptf repo)

    finder is a must

    customize/summerboard

    apache or lighttpd for storing/viewing files (also check out my 127.0.0.1 app for those, which automatically opens safari to your system's main page for files in those servers, its buried somewhere in the forums)

    term-vt100 is good for errors and tweaks

    touchpad/vnsea

    time capsule is a great backup application - backs up notes, installer, a ton of other things

    I could go on forever, but I'll stop there. just look around the forums, go back a few pages and you can find a ton of great stuff.
