    So this iPhone 3G User called "Erica" sends an Email to Jobs adress. And this is part of the Mail.

    And this is is a port of his reply.


    So 3G iphone and 2G ipod users. No need to cry.
    You can activate it by Jailbreaking with Redsn0w, or with a Simple .plist edit.
    A Guide made by me can be found here.

    And if you gonna notice that your device is getting dramaticly slower after activating it.
    See this guide from xXrkidXx how to delete some "Shadow icon effects" that will make your device much much faster with Background activated.

    It's not the end of the world. Think about when the jailbreak comes out! Then we get Multi-tasking and wallpapers!

    I have to admit the animation is kinda laggy when you unlock the phone, but c'mon Apple would it very hurt that much?

    I don't even use wallpapers.
    I'll just jailbreak (whenever possible) and enable backgrounding. If just somehow Backgrounder works better, I'll use that.

    We've had wallpapers on iphone for 4 years now via jailbreak with no problems at all, Apple implements it and we get a performance hit?

    I have multitasking and wallpapers enabled on my 3G and haven't noticed any side effects yet. I'm pretty vigilant about controlling what tasks are running and what gets killed. After using Android for a few months it becomes habit. Android apps are free to run as wild as they want, so you have to be vigilant. We just need a task manager where we can check off what we want to run and kill the rest with a single tap on an icon, like you can download for android.

    Wallpapers works well on the iphone 3G we know that trough Winterboard, works awesome without any laags.
    The reason why its laggy at the older device now with the Stock FW Wallpaper(without having Winterboard installed) is, because apple added a "special" shadow effects on the icons, docs, etc. and that is slowing down the device..
    So this is defenatly a fail on apple.

    I know you could easily knock Steve Jobs for such a small response, but I do give him credit for reading his mail and responding directly to the users.
