    Well besides the fancy baseband update that comes with 4.2 the ability to set a different text tone per contact is plenty reason for me to want 4.2

    I have my iPad on 4.2 for a couple days now and i love the folders! For me i hate that they removed the screen orientation lock function next to the volume buttons. Now its a mute/unmute switch! I have to double press the home button to lock/unlock the screen rotation

    I'll have to wait for the 4.2 jailbreak/unlock before i update my 4 to 4.2

    I would like to think that in this Cydia update there will be some features from the Rock app. I realize some people strongly disliked the app. However, reviews were a good aspect as it gave insight to problems an app might have. Also being able to backup and restore your apps inside the Rock with your account. Queuing and simultaneous downloads while still browsing other apps was nice. I don't expect Cydia to include every feature of Rock, but Jay did buy out Rock and led us to believe there would be some happy developments to come about due to the merge.

    Being able to see apps better is a great first reason followed by too many others to list...

    Don't forget, the ipad was created first...just not released first.

    Having a different text tone for each contact can be done with BiteSMS. It's free as long as you don't mind ads. Plus, BiteSMS is infinitely better than the stock SMS app.

    I'm still debating on whether or not to update to 4.2, I really want to, but I also don't want to, because I would have to set up everything...AGAIN.


    Yeh... That is such a pain in the *** lol. Hopefully maybe the new cydia will have something like rock did where it saved ur packages for u.

    I don't see why apps can't be installed while your still browsing cydia, and the respring be done when you close cydia!?!? And if you havnt installed anything and no changes have been made then why cant cydia run in the background with native iOS backgrounding!?

    Also, updating sources should be controlled by a daemon and done at user defined times such as in the middle of the night!

    There's so much that can be done and all the excuses are just laziness! There's no reason why all of the above can't be done!!!!!!!!!!

    Question: if I download the 4.2 that's available now(developer gold) do I need to upgrade when the official release comes out? And jailbreak again in order to get cydia?

    Its is more or less the same, but it is always good to use the public version instead of the GM, so yes you may have to update again to jailbreak. I think the 4.0 GM wasnt compatible with jailbreakme.com when it came out. Only the official 4.0 was.

    I don't think so, not unless Apple finds a huge bug before the launch. Aren't GM releases like, final release candidates?

    Ya they are, obviously the exploit will still be there. But the jailbreak may not be made to work right with the GM version, as in the case of 4.0 GM and jailbreakme.com. These new jailbreaks are different though so it may well work, but it is always good to use the public release anyway.
