    There will be bug fixes included, that just isn't a huge announcement that most people would read articles about.

    Now, as far as features that you get with Cydia apps already, in case you haven't noticed, Apple does a pretty awesome job of implementing things once they finally realize the need for such things. On top of that, performance will typically be better with the native feature than with the mobile substrate alternative (there are a couple of exceptions).

    Well if that ShaTTer jailbreak ever gets released, anyone that has an iPhone/iPod touch 4 or an iPad will be able to jailbreak. (jailbreak4life!!! As long as apple leaves the bootrom alone which we all know they won't...)

    We're having trouble answering your question, because we're not sure what you what you wanted to know.

    Are you asking if 4.2 includes all the new additions and fixes that came with 4.1? probably. Its an unreleased product so only Apple would know for sure.

    Are you asking if the JB 4.2 will miss any features present in stock 4.2? Or stock 4.1? Or JB 4.1? Probably not, but these are all unreleased products so nobody knows for sure.

    Are you asking if stock 4.2 will change to a different feature set after the JB comes out? I can't imagine why it would.

    Were you asking something else entirely?

    Maybe you should try asking again.
    Repetition helps.

    I'm asking if I update to 4.2, will I miss out on gamecenter and the proximity sensor fix that is featured in the 4.1 update?

    YESSS OMG! I was just nagging about that missing feature yesterday. I reluctantly used iTunes and iPhoto to create albums and it was so crippling. And even after you've created the album and synced to your phone you can't even delete any pictures. You'll need iTunes to do that. The need to create photo albums on the iDevice is a must. iPhone/iPod should be the primary tool for creating such things.Can someone please create a jailbreak utility/app to allow us to do so? Please?

    You won't miss out. It's all part of it. 4.2 is just added features on top of what was already there in 4.1

    I really wish they would update the youtube app to support a little better resolution for the iphone 4. The videos look terrible on the cellular network.

    +1^ the retina display really makes those non-HD videos look crappier than they did on my 3G.

    I feel the need to address what I expect Apple to add before I update the iOS: smileys (regular ones for all mobiles) and a little more like BiteSMS is; better shortcuts for location service and 3G; and also wifi hotspot tethering! It should be our choice, not our providers, how to use our dataplan!
    Thanx for reading.

    Lockdown app on Cydia allows you to password protect any app.

    Jailbreak and use tonefxs. Create your tones or d/l tones. The software converts to .caf. You can choose custom tones for Ringtone, new text msg, new voicemail, new mail, sent mail, calendar alert, keyboard click, photoshutter, lock sound, unlock sound, charging sound.

    Easy to use, definately worth the money.

    My wife hates it when Michael Scott says, "that's what she said" every time I get a text.

    It's my understanding that ToneFX just changes the SMS sound universally, correct?

    In the 4.2 beta you can change the SMS sound on a per contact basis. Essentially you could have one sound for business contacts, one for family, one for friends, etc. I believe Kart was wondering if you will be able to load custom tones for contacts and be able to expand on the 6(?) tones that come stock with 4.2.

    we needs time stamps on the texts. I know biteSMS can do this but my sister doesn't want to jailbreak and she wants it. and it would be nice to have a default one.

    Ahh Yes, it does only work globally, not per contact. Maybe a combination of ToneFXs and 4.2 will enable you to create custom tones per contact. It would work better than just 4.2 as you can have more than 6 tones to choose from. I like being able to easily customize all the other sounds as well.
