    I haven't jailbreoken yet, but would it be possible to disable the power slider somehow? I wouldn't want one of my friends to shut it off and not be able to boot it jailbroken. Could I just take out the slider image and it wouldn't slide?

    I don't think it's as simple as removing the power slider image. That would at the most just make the slider invisible.

    I have a tap to unlock setting on my winterboard. That's the closest thing to "removing the slider" I can think of.

    Ya but my objective is not being able to turn it off.

    That's for the unlock slider though - he's talking about the power off slider.

    Funny that you mention this.

    This morning a friend of mine turned it off, not knowing that it was a tethered jailbreak. Had to wait 6 hours until i got home to reboot it properly. So disabling the power slider might not be such a bad idea.

    I just tell people not to turn it off...they usually don't know how anyways.

    I guess I could just change the power string to "DO NOT TURN OFF!" or something. That might provoke people to do it though.

    By the way, I'm not sure if you understand this OP, but when you reboot, it's still jailbroken. Hope that didn't confuse you.

    And that would be a GREAT mod to make, although once in a while I turn off my touch and then reboot it, don't know why, I guess just cause I want to get used to it. Although we have GUIs now....

    Ah, the POWER slider. You could probably write a pretty simple tweak that disables the "hold top switch" menu.
