    I am seeing so Many threads about failed JB's, yet my ipod is now perfectly running on 1.1.3, with ALL mobile APPS, wiggly icons, customised icons, Applications folder moved to free space up.

    Now I am wondering - is this because I got lucky, or because I waited, researched before the JB.

    Then after the JB, when I hit a couple Problems, I searched fully before trying to resolve the issue.

    I guess my point is this:

    Before you open a New thread to tell us about your problem, try searching through the forums. I know the SEARCH is disabled, but you can still look through a few pages, thread titles usually give youa good indication of the content.

    Also, if its a common problem, those threads are either stickied, or high up the board with lots of replies.

    Next, if you do have to open a thread, dont just read the frist reply you get then run off and try the repair - make sure its GOOD ADVICE, and not going to make your problem worse.

    Finally, this forum is not the only place answers will be found, try the Technical Help, the Jailbreak, the Applications, the games.....answers are found all over this site.

    Take a bit of time to find the RIGHT fix for the problem YOU are having - chances are, others are having them too.....

    Great post! Well-said, and wise words not only for anyone who's having trouble, but even just in general. The bulk of people's problems usually boil down to user error from rushing into things willy-nilly without taking the time to actually read or understand what it is they're doing.

    I'd consider it "deserved success" rather than "luck". You had patience, did your research both before and during the process when you encountered problems, and ended up with a good outcome. The ones that try to shortcut that process, deserve the problems they face.
