    I've been thinking about upgrading to 2.0 and using cydia with my jailbroken ipod (1.1.4). Is it worth it the upgrade ? Does customize and Summerboard work with 2.0 ? Is cydia better than installer ?

    In the words of Gitykins,
    *Facepalm*
    how many more of these F***ing threads are we going to have to endure.
    2.0.x is better than 1.1.x
    it can do almost all of the things that 1.1.x can and more because of the app store.
    just upgrade and see for yourself.

    Yea, I see a lot of threads with the same topic but I cant seem to get a clear answer, How is it "better" (Is it just the app store ?). Will it benefit an of my jailbroken apps ? And whats the deal with Cydia ? Does customize work on 2.0 ?

    1) 100% worth it.
    2) Customize sucks. Use WinterBoard.
    3) Yes. By far.


    EDIT: lol @ "In the words of Gitykins"

    ffs. nothing i will say will make the decision for you. if you are happy staying on a firmware where you ahve things set up as you like them but pretty much nothing new will be coming out, stay on 1.1.x
    if you want to upgrade to a newer firmware where at times it can be harder to set things up as you like them (although i prefer my 2.0.2 setup to my 1.1.2 setup) and a firmware where new tihngs come out daily because all the developers are working on it, then upgrade.

    and if you do. dont use installer. it sucks. cydia is so so so far superior (plus it works...)

    Okay, so WInterboard is the new thing to use ? Alright, I'll try it and see how it turns out. Do I need to Set Boss Prefs and Boos tools and all that jazz ?

    Not, you don't really need to install anything besides "OpenSSH"
