[QUOTE=JimmyA;34320600]Works now, thanks, [editline]21st January 2012[/editline] Question, do I need to install winterboard or is that obsolete?[/QUOTE] Well, depends on if you want to theme stuff. As for me, I don't use it because it affects the way the text looks on the homescreen. Fixes exist, but none are quite right.
I use it for a shitload of things, fakeoverclock, emulators, Win 95 emulator, tether WiFi...
Any apps worth buying? [editline]22nd January 2012[/editline] Cydia ones, that is. I've got Parallax.
[QUOTE=Scot;34322936]Ever since I upgraded to 5.0.1 and jailbroke it my device has been very sluggish; unlocking takes a few seconds, ipod controls will be unresponsive and memory is eaten up very quickly. Anyone else experienced this?[/QUOTE] Yeah, my 3GS is definitely slower. Uninstalling Winterboard seems to have made it more responsive but it still takes a lot longer to unlock than it used to, very irritating.
bitesms duh
I'm really digging blurred NC. It gives a really nice look, even with default settings.
My favorite Cydia apps were always FiveIconDock and SBSettings. Both are extremely useful.
Are there any Cydia tweaks that can significantly make my iPod Touch 2G any faster?
[QUOTE=Quark:;34343245]Are there any Cydia tweaks that can significantly make my iPod Touch 2G any faster?[/QUOTE] FakeOverClock It will enhance the animation speed, it actually makes the phone respond faster
I've got that installed, but many things just hang for 3 or 4 seconds before doing anything, mainly opening folders and exiting apps.
Hm.. Lower the animation speed then
I have it set to x 2.5
Sorry to ask so many questions now I looked around a little but didn't find anything useful on google. The new 5.0.1 untethered for A5 does it work for the iphone 4 aswell or is there a seperate version available for it? I'm also currently on ios 4 so if I just update with itunes will I get 5.0.1 or is there a newer version out?

Is anyone having trouble using SSH with their phone? I'm using Winscp, have the IP, root alpine and all that junk but it won't connect
"ABSINTHE is now setting things up, please stand-by..." god damnit [editline]23rd January 2012[/editline] Nevermind!

My battery seems to be dying hell of a lot faster! Might un-JB.
Dropped 72% in 5 hours. I'm unjailbreaking once I get home... [editline]23rd January 2012[/editline] Rating dumb without explaining why. THANK YOU KIND SIR!

THANK YOU KIND SIR![/QUOTE] must be some tweak you installed incorrectly or you installed to many tweaks such that it conflicted, or its your phone's battery experiencing problems. 9/10 of the people who complained to me jailbreaking sucks the battery life, had installed too many tweaks and it ate up ram and the themes ate battery too. only one person's battery was the real problem. i have like 15 tweaks on my phone, excellent battery life, iphone 4, 5.01. do the usual battery saving tips and do some of the deeper research yourself.

LabelSlide and Five-Icon-Dock. :v: And I know it's not a problem with my phone. It had a great battery life before the JB (or really as good as the 4S battery gets)

Going To have to jailbreak when my warranty cuts out fucking parents
[QUOTE=Dwragon82997;34365844]Transferring, trying to get some themes and icons on. I've used Putty, Filezilla, and winscp. Still doesn't work.[/QUOTE] themes and icons? why not install from the device? i mean search for the themes in cydia and download it? am i missing something here? have you installed afc2add? install the openssh sbsettings toggle and switch the toggle on too. if just transferring files i don't see why ifunbox doesn't suffice. what i don't get is the themes part, unless you want to transfer the themes to your computer for some reason.

Some themes aren't on Cydia. Anyways, I just use iFile + Dropbox now but it's a huge hassle.

And the 4S battery being shit isn't exactly news.
