    Lets assume every single hacker in the whole world couldn't jailbreak the 2.0 firmware, and we all had to make a decision on whether to stick with jailbreak or go to appstore, which would you do? I'm asking this because i haven't got a clue what i'd do, is super monkey ball REALLY going to beat having a GBA emulator on your iPod/iPhone?

    The only thing pulling me into getting 2.0 atm is super monkey ball because have you seen those graphics

    they're the best graphics i've seen on a handheld including psp because the water graphics are making me dribble. Also those mini-SDK packs apple have been making as demos look like such good quality, and the positive is that they'll never fail because they've been coded by people who know their product.

    So do i stick with the awesome illegalness that is Game emulator and iSlsk or do i go to 2.0 and their precious appstore. I'm torn.

    Super Monkey Ball has 100 Levels. Did you know THAT?

    I find GBA and GB games to get really boring Really fast. I have a PSP and a Computer, both can play both emulators.

    Super Monkey Ball really blows away the Emulators.

    In my opinion, it's way worth unjailbreaking.

    yeah i dont see the point, the only thing i would want is a way to get free apps or make a way to emulate payed for apple apps on the iphone so they can be distributed once downloaded without everyone paying for them.

    tbh the apps are cheap cause compared with say a DS game which is £30

    i gunna probably see what 2.0 is like on my brother ipod and dad iphone and see if it is good enough

    If you want Jiggy Widgets (They're not apps

    If you want Objective-C Apps, stick with AppStore.
