OK. Couple of things before I begin (if you want to go to the meat of the thread, go to the next paragraph). First off, I am jailbroken, and love it. But I'm seeing a trend. Second, this is for the mods, I didn't know exactly where to put this, so I'm putting it here (in otherwords, feel free to move it). Now to the point. As I stated earlier, I am jailbroken, but have noticed a trend while jailbroken from the 1.x days to the present. This is 100% opinionated, and feel free to post your opinion on this topic. The trend that I have seen in jailbreaking is that it is slowly fading away. What I mean by this is that jailbreaking is beginning to look less and less useful and will eventually go away*. To begin, in the 1.x days, the main reason to jailbreak was for themes and games/apps (custom), and categories. 2.x came out and games and apps went away from jailbreaking. Jailbreaking became about themes and small mods (SBSettings, early backgrounder, ect.). Well that was all great, I was ecstatic when we got basic features like backgrounding and copy and paste. But I still used jailbreaking mainly for wallpaper. My most basic need. 3.x came out. Guess what, it included copy and paste. Take that off the list. So jailbreaking went into many deeper mods. And of course multitasking and wallpaper/themes. Mods like LockInfo, Infinboard, Infinidock, ect. But of course 4.0 came out. That leaves us with what we have today. We have an OS with multitasking, folders (replaces categories), copy and paste, and wallpapers. Wait a sec. Weren't these the main reasons to jailbreak in the first place? Of course they were. Except for the deeper mods. What I predict in the future is that Apple will begin to add more to the OS, like a LockInfo clone (can easily be done). InfiniBoard and InfiniDock probably won't come, but they aren't really a necessity for the OS to survive, you can basically get an infinate amount of apps on a page through folders (and for the dock, folders go into the dock too!). Lets see, that's 192 apps per page, and 48 apps for the dock. I think that's close enough to infinity, don't you? (InfiniBoard didn't let me go to infinity when I used it, might have changed by now). The future in jailbreaking is looking dimmer and dimmer as we find less reason to jailbreak as Apple, does hear our cries, just waits to answer. I believe that at one point, the only reason to jailbreak will be for themes and [redacted] (I redacted it myself, I didn't say it so please don't ban me! Please Register or Log in to view images) But these will eventually be the only two things Apple will never allow on the device (One of them for an obvious reason!). Well, that's all I've got, from the future, to now, what I see jailbreaking coming to inevitably. However, I do believe that everyone has a right to an opinion, so please, tell me your opinion on this. I'd be interested to see where you think jailbreaking will go in the future. Of course there's that voice in the back of my head telling me that a dev will come up with something so useful and so awesome, that one will NEED to jailbreak just to have it.
