    Heres the best Upgrade Iphone can have in 4.0.
    Let us put what we want on our freaking Iphones and stop this silly game of cat and mouse with Jail breakers. Tards. Can they not see that if they did this they could double there sales?. all i really want at this point is a fix for tethering... hopefully after 4.0 is out the devs and geholt come up with something

    Appl£ might hate the Jailbreaking community but if they lost it/us they wouldn't have people they could steal ideas from. take the search function err wasn't that Quickgold and many more things they take and claim they did first.

    Appl£ are out of touch with the consumers, if they vanquish Jailbreaking for good they will lose...

    I use my home button as little as I can due to the fact I really don't want it to break. Apple doesn't care about this because it's more money in their pockets.

    Thumbs up my thought
    what if, as some sources have speculated, the new iphone does have a touch sensitive case and by squeezing the iphone on each side it displayed all open applications and you could pick which one you wanted to go to from there. This would be a great feature especially with the multi-tasking. Make it an "A+" upgrade this time apple!

    If it's like kirikae then double tap will open multitasking then another two will open up your selected Home app that you selected in settings.

    Is the home button easily broken? This is new to me because I rarely hear anyone breaking their home button.

    At the risk of repeating the views of a few other people, I think one thing is fairly certain: this is going to be for 4G iPhones only. Why?

    1. Apple has repeatedly said that the reason they haven't implemented it yet is that it doesn't suit current hardware. Not in those words, but they have complained about 'battery life' and 'processor intensity.' Rather than contradicting themselves, they will bring it exclusively to newer hardware that will not have these issues
    2. How will this multi-task manager be invoked? All concievable gestures are used by apps, leaving only physical buttons. The home-button is widely used, and yet is the only button they could tie this functionality to. Either they add a multi-task button to the home-button dialogs, which would be tedious, OR, the point I was getting to...
    The new iPhone will have some form of new input. Be it a button, or pressure sensors on the sides so that you 'squeeze' the device to invoke multi-tasking (much like the older mighty mice, very apple n'est pas?). Another reason 4G exclusivity is pretty likely.

    Well the post is in reference to OS 4.0, not iPhone 4G. So I wouldn't worry about it.

    Woot! I finally added Proswitcher. It totally rocks- almost too powerful- one must really think things through when assigning gestures, but really granular, and great for those of us with broken sleep buttons. I can take screenshots again, and sleeping is easy again- I just shake the phone. This developer deserves major plaudits. It's true that the JB community shows the way for Apple.

    I really couldnt care less about this stuff, just JB and you dont have to wait and proswitcher/cicuitous is probably better than whatever apple will release anyway.

    Actually, Apple already uses that gesture for multitasking, albeit not in a way that's immediately obvious - it's the way you control your music without closing whatever app you're using. Obviously the reason this even works is because the iPod process is always running in the background.

    I REALLY hope they address the battery issues though, Backgrounder killed my battery life horribly. I also hope apps won't force users to enable this to use features that could be done through other means (e.g. push notifications).

    Yeah, my home buttons been broken for months. I use Kirikae with Activator instead. I'm screwed if I need to rejailbreak via Redsn0w though.

    I hope Apple will boost the RAM to 2GB and CPU to 2GHz and a 10Ah battery. I don't see it happening lol.

    I totally agree...that's one reason (amongst a slew of others ) 4.0 CAN'T escape being jailbroken so we can have activator installed and re-assign the function to another button like the volume keys...

    I however prefer circuitous...liked proswitcher a lot, but it kept cutting out my sat nav (co-pilot) at crucial moments, so I unistalled it...anybody else had that problem?
