    Hey guys, i kinda left the scene when I upgraded to 2.0 and there was no good jailbreak. I just jailbroked my 2.2 iTouch 1st gen and now i want some of my old functionality back.
    For starters, I can't seem to find a good FREE ebook reader that i can just stick a text file in and read. Anybody know of one? Books was good when i had 1.1.4, but now i cant use it.

    Also on a minor note, I'm running Jaymzleon's Iron Man theme and the icons for the start menu are all crunched in the category. Anybody know how to fix it?

    Thanks guys.

    Use Docs on cydia. I use airsharing but it costs money...

    BookShelf LE is free and made by the same Zachary Bedell who did Books.app for 1.1.x - the only catch is you'll have to upload the files to the BookShelf app from your PC using a Java-based program.

    Delete the Categories preferences from the Library/preferences folder if you don't have Categories installed. Categories is on the basic repos in Cydia, IIRC.

    I found textReader on Cydia to have similar functionality to ruBooks which I was very happy with before, so if you are like me you may find this one nice and customizable to your taste as well.
