    I know I sound like a man in his late 40s who has recently swapped his cassette player for an iPod Touch, but I haven't been jailbroken since 1.1.4, and I've never really followed the scene.

    But when Geohot announced that he'd be releasing an unlock for my baseband, I decided to try out BlackRa1n and jailbreak (blimey, it's quick!) and it worked perfectly. Then I installed Cydia.

    I've wanted some nice things now that I'm jailbroken, and so I went on a spending spree and downloaded everything below:

    • Intelliscreen
    • PogoPlank
    • Winterboard
    • 32 by Manic Nimrod
    • 32 PP Theme by Manic Nimrod
    • gpSPhone
    • GriP (Growl notifications)
    • Five Icon Dock
    • Lockdown
    • Liveclock
    • qTweeter
    • SBSettings

    and that's it. Is there anything else you guys think I should have, whether you think it's cool or useful? I have a 3GS, so I don't need Cycorder. Don't really want MXTube or any apps which are really battery intensive (Intelliscreen was pushing it, but it's so useful.)

    And now I pass it over to you

    Might wana check out lockinfo by stimpy, which displays information on your lockscreen, and is in my opinion much better than intelliscreen and more customizable! Also there is twidget which is a widget to show your tweets from twitter in the lockscreen. You might also want to download System preferences which can add alot of useful addon's to your device, such as changing your Ipod carrier logo to whatever you want to name it, and other useful things! These are just a few off the tip of my head.

    Cheers guys. Gonna take a look at LockInfo, sounds interesting. Twidget also sounds cool, but I do get push notifications for Twitter anyway so it wouldn't be too much different.

    I've recently seen a video for Dashboard Widgets for iPhone (which aren't out yet...) but they look incredibly useful too.

    Supreme Prefs... is that the one which gives you an 8 icon dock? Would be v. useful to have quick access to a few more apps.. And I could probably use Backgroundr when I'm downloading songs on TTR.

    You guys are heroes

    Kirikae - Switch between applications.
    USBDive - Use your device as a flash drive.

    Kirikae is great for multitasking. Just hit the home button twice and you can switch applications. If you have backgrounder, it will even leave those apps running. You can specify favorites to open apps you use a lot.

    I would stay away from Intelliscreen. It's notorious for rooting itself deep in your system, and forced me to have to rejailbreak.

    Gah, don't use Intelliscreen. Use LockInfo. Also, be careful with Supreme Preferences, as some people have had problems with it on 3.x.

    AdBlock
    Backgrounder
    Backward Compatibility
    Battery Control
    BlankNull
    Calculator Widget for SBSettings
    FontSwap
    Frostbite (currently in public beta at MacThemes)
    iFile
    Insomnia Toggle for SBSettings
    iPodPop
    Kirikae
    Lockscreen Clock Hide
    Lockscreen Dim Delay Controls
    MobileMusicPlayer Flip
    MobileTerminal
    MusicInfo
    NoAA
    NoAccessorySplash
    Notifier
    OpenSSH
    Quick Dismiss
    Rotation Inhibitor
    Safari Download Manager
    Adblock Toggle for SBSettings (from that dodgy site we can't talk about)
    SBSettings
    SnowLock (in semi-private beta at MacThemes)
    Veency
    WinterBoard
    YourTube
